Lifestyle // Valentine's Day Gift Guide for him

February 9, 2015

Love is in the air, everywhere I look around! Yep, Valentine’s Day is nearly upon us and I’ve been scouring the Internet to find some ideas for the perfect present for your lobster…

Aftershave Viva Box // One Man Two Guvnors // Weekend Bag // Coffee Grinder // Cufflinks // Craft Beer London Book // DIY Dates // Shaving Set

Viva Box For Him

I first discovered these Viva Boxes at The Perfume Shop Christmas Press Day at the end of last year. I think they’re a great idea and the perfect present for Valentine’s Day as I always think perfume and aftershave make great romantic gifts . Each Box contains 7 samples of aftershave and a voucher for a full sized bottle, so are perfect for people who either love discovering new scents or who need a bit of help to find one that’s right for them.

One Man Two Guvnors Theatre Tickets

I think buying tickets / experience based gifts are great as it means you get to spend time together (haha providing they choose to bring you!) I love taking my boyfriend to the theatre and there are always so many good things to see. One show which my boyfriend loved was One Man, Two Guvnors. It’s laugh out loud funny with a really engaging storyline and you can usually get a pretty good deal on tickets through

Weekend Bag

Nothing says “take me away” like giving someone a weekend bag ;D hehe! I am a bit obsessed with finding the perfect weekend bag and I love this black faux leather one. It looks really smart and is much more special than the typical boy’s sporty style ones.

Coffee Grinder

My boyfriend loves coffee and luxury beans always make for a great gift. A coffee grinder is a fab present for a coffee enthusiast and allows them to go the extra mile with making their perfect cup of joe. Buying beans whole and grinding them yourself also makes for a much fresher cup of coffee.


How cute are these bulldog cuff links?! Perfect for adding some fun to a boring work suit! We seem to have lots of engagement parties and weddings in the diary this year so these will be perfect.

Craft Beer London Book

This book is the perfect little present for a craft beer fan. It lists heaps of “the finest craft beer pubs, bars and breweries in the capital”. Pub crawl anyone?!

DIY Gifts

You may have seen my post on Friday where I shared some cute and super easy to make DIY Valentine’s Day gift ideas. I turned some simple jam jars into Jam J-Art, filling one with Sweets for my Sweet and the other with fun date ideas to do with my boyfriend. Handmade, personalised presents are always the best (and they don’t have to break the bank either!)

Shaving Set

How cool is this shaving kit?! Whether he’s a fan of electric shavers or wet shaving this set would look awesome in the bathroom and is probably not something they’d buy for themselves. 

So there you go, there’s my cream of the crop for your Creme de la Creme! I hope you liked my ideas and I’d love to know what gifts you’re planning to give your loved ones this Valentine’s Day (and if your single, what you’re going to treat yourself to!)

    I did One man two guvnors for my ALevel drama, it was the original version though, and I loved it! Such a funny play! I think going to the theatre with your other half is such a good idea and one people don't really think about doing either!
