10 Thoughtful Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas for Him


Valentine's Day is arguably the most romantic day of the whole year, where couples share a bottle of wine, parents take a night away from the kids, and where some of us take the opportunity to ask out that special person for whom we’ve been pining, in the hopes of starting something wonderful.

Although tradition suggests that Valentine’s Day is all about women receiving champagne, perfume or flowers, there’s no reason men shouldn’t be treated with a thoughtful gift, as their partners express their love by spoiling them with something fabulous.

To help you along the way, we’ve compiled a list of our top ten favourite gifts to give to men on Valentine’s Day, to create a night full of pure romance.

#1 A Unique Bottle of Wine

    Unless your partner strictly doesn’t drink, alcohol can be an easy gift option. Depending on your budget and their taste, consider buying an expensive bottle of wine, a big bottle of whiskey or even a classic bottle of champagne. If they are a connoisseur, there are affordable home brewing sets available online, and even local beer making courses. Just make sure he saves some for you!



    #2 Fashion Accessories

    While most men have plenty of boring socks, carry a wallet and have a few pairs of cufflinks, buying some expensive, high quality accessories for your significant other might suit his style. Think special occasion pieces, or extravagant items you know your partner wouldn’t buy for himself, and keep the receipts to give him the option of selecting his own.

      #3 A Classic Book

      If your loved one is an avid reader, gifting them with a stack of books might be just what they need to feel spoilt.

      Most book stores offer gift vouchers if you’re unsure what to buy, and some of the more specialised and online stores even sell first editions. If there’s a book your partner can’t live without, find a unique copy and inscribe your own romantic message.

      Or find them a first edition print of an American classic that he can treasure forever.

      Some fun ideas include monogramed towels, tailor-made clothes and even customised vodka! Personalised gifts show your loved one you put serious thought into their gift, by hand selecting something just for them.

      #5 A Record player

      Vinyl is making a comeback don't you know?  If your man is a music aficionado, why not kickstart his love of old media with a record player and some classic records to remember his youth with.

      A vintage disc of Michael Jackson's off the wall or Fleetwood Mac might just do the trick

      #6 The latest Tech Gadget

      For most people, technology is a part of everyday life and most of us couldn’t get by without it. There are some items however, that usually only most tech savvy among us enjoy, like a smartwatches, 3D printers, bluetooth speakers, wireless headphones or even the latest mobile phone. If you know your loved one likes technology but don’t know what to get them, try a gift voucher instead!

      Some guys love gadgets of any type and there are a ton of great gadget gift ideas on the latest gadget blogs.

      #7 Tickets to a show

      The beauty of buying your significant other tickets to a show is that it’s something you can enjoy together. If your partner likes going to the theatre or listening to live music, research what’s coming up and secure your tickets in advance. If you’re unsure what they might like, search for a genre you think they’d be interested in (like comedy, circus performance, music etc.) and book two tickets to opening night. Even if the show is bad, you’ll enjoy critiquing it together afterwards.

      #8 Make him a gift

      Although their reputation suggests otherwise, homemade gifts are absolutely not just reserved for children to give to parents. Making something heartfelt is a fantastic option if you’re not looking to spend too much, if your partner has almost everything or if you want to give them something sentimental. You could make them a scrapbook, write them a poem or make vouchers for them to redeem, for things like massages from you, or even more mundane tasks like a promise you’ll take out the bins. Be creative and make it personal.

      #9 A romantic escape

      Taking time off work for a long weekend is just about as romantic as it gets. If you can afford it and have the time, consider visiting a bed and breakfast, staying in a fancy hotel or even flying to an exotic location you’ve never experienced. While you’re away you can take advantage of the alone time by booking a couples massage, enjoying a candlelit dinner or visiting a winery. You’ll reconnect and enjoy the experience together.

      #10 Share a new experience

      Sharing a new experience with someone is a beautiful way to bond, especially if that experience is extreme! For the adventurous souls, consider bungee jumping, skydiving, paragliding or something neither of you have done before. For the more introverted couples, a dance lesson, pottery session, cooking demonstration or art class might do the trick.

      Buying a present for your partner shouldn’t be a stressful experience, but rather a chance to spoil him with something he may not feel comfortable buying for himself.
