Valentine's gifts for him


Valentine’s Day isn’t far away and it’s the one day of the year us singletons are meant to hate. Actually, I don’t mind it too much. I’m a romantic at heart after all and I’m not so bitter (yet) that I can’t appreciate other people being in love.


As long as I’m nowhere near them!


Single or not, you can’t avoid seeing ideas for gifts everywhere on the internet right now and I often see gifts and think, “That’s exactly the type of gift I’d buy.”  Of course, it is a perpetual reminder that I’m going to die alone. But hey, at least I get a king-size bed to myself. Every cloud …


So with that in mind, I thought you might like me to give you a few ideas of what to buy the man in your life … even thought I don’t have one.


My first go-to shop for all present buying is always ‘Not On The High Street’ … and they have some fab present ideas on there for Valentine’s Day, so it’s a great place to start:


Beard And Moustache Care Gift Set

You know how much I love a beard (on a man, not on me), well this would be the perfect present for my beard-wearing boyfriend. (Yes, yes, were I to have one.) I think it’s a great price at £29.50 and contains Beard Soap (100ml), Beard Balm (100ml), Moustache Wax (25g) and a Beard Comb. It’s probably not the sort of thing your man would buy for himself so that makes it the perfect present!


Jo Malone London Gift Set

I chose this gift set in particular, pretty much for selfish reasons. I would say it’s a unisex gift set and so you can pass it off as a present for him but, y’know, it’s Jo Malone and we all know that her products are gorgeous so basically, we’re buying this set for ourselves. This particular set is £36 and contains a Lime Basil & Mandarin Travel Candle and Lime Basil & Mandarin Body & Hand Wash (100ml).


Smartphone Projector

“The Smartphone Projector will allow you to transform your bedroom into a cinema experience for your friends and family. As well as magnifying the visuals, the silicone grip will hold your phone securely in place.”


I have absolutely no idea what this would be used for, but it does exactly what it says on the tin. It projects videos from your smartphone onto the wall! I secretly think this is rather cool and it’s really inexpensive at £15.99, so won’t break the bank. It’s a fact men (yes, yes … and women) love gadgets, so it would be something he’d no doubt show off to his mates if nothing else, whilst saying what an awesome wife/girlfriend he has.


Personalised Mix Tape MP3 Player

There’s nothing more personal than a mix-tape right? This is just a 21st century version. This MP3 player is shaped exactly like a miniature cassete tape but works exactly like any other MP3 player. Cute no?  It has 2GB capacity so it holds around 200 songs … plenty of space to put your own songs on there too! Priced at £14.99, I think it’s a unique gift idea.


I hope you like what I chose. Remember me on Valentine’s Day as you exchange gifts won’t you? 🙂

  1. I really like the suggestions. Sadly nothing so fancy in our house. Lager and favourite crisps. I get champers and we sit in the sofa and get quietly tiddly

      1. OH is currently growing a large beard. It gets bigger depending how stressed he is at work. I like to think of it as his beard of rage 😉
