  1. A luxury shaving kit or beard grooming set is one of our favourite Valentine’s day gifts for him, simply because it’s always appreciated. It also gives them a hint to keep their beard clean and well-groomed  – useful if you don’t like long straggly beards!
  2. Moleskin or leather-covered notebook is a sophisticated gift that can be very useful, even if he’s a computer nerd! There’s always a reason to jot something important that you need to remember on a slip of paper and these lovely bound notebooks fit the bill nicely.

  1. If you are still wondering what gifts do guys like for Valentine’s Day, then how about a masculine cologne? There are plenty to choose from online, but the Pierre Cardin Eau De Cologne Spray for Men has great reviews and is very affordable.
  2. Why not create a playlist of your boyfriend’s favourite tunes (adding in a few of your faves as well!) and give this to him on a USB for Valentine’s Day?
  3. Have you heard of Long Distance Friendship Lamps? These are attractive bedside lamps that light up simultaneously when one lamp is lit. They are perfect if you are in a long-distance relationship, as when one of you lights their lamp, the other lamp lights at the same time!
