  1. I thought I was ahead of the game as I already organised Mr O’s Valentine’s Gift, but thanks to you he is getting a new one. Which I kind of need too ;)

  2. When I met Mr. LTM I thought he was the most dashing man ever as he would come and take me and my drunk friends out in SF wearing his uber stylish cashmere jacket. It has long since disappeared, I love the idea of a new one and never would have thought of it. In addition to arriving in cashmere, he also paid for the drinks, that’s how I knew he was the one :)

  3. Hmm…now the question is do I go romantic or practical…because that charging dock would make his desk look a lot neater and well, the razor seems pretty sweet–but these gifts might be a little selfish…perhaps the Rocca vineyards package is something we can both enjoy :)

  4. I am lucky enough to have a dashing, romantic Portuguese partner. Of course he’s not perfect, so although it’s a difficult choice, out of these 10 great gift ideas, I would have to err on the side of practicality and go for the Griffin Powerdock 5 – because tidiness is not his strong point, and like many men he loves his gadgets. Wonderful suggestions Paul!

    Ladies (and gentlemen) romance can be demonstrated in so many ways, so it’s fine to give a practical present like this. :)

  5. Mr P isn’t lucky enough to get valentines gifts – we do cards only, but since we just got back from UAE for his 40th birthday and I’m taking him to Venice as a birthday gift… he should be happy enough!

    But I like these ideas – its funny, I think those ideas are made to measure. He wants a new jacket, just got some Hermes Terre for birthday and always likes a new iPad related gadget, and is a big fan of the new mens BA first amenity kit!!!

    I need to investigate those 36 hour books before my birthday!!

  6. Great ideas! I especially love the Griffin Powerstation, this is a much needed in my home. I appreciate the detailed information about each item. I see so many posts about women’s products and it was refreshing to see them for men. Thanks for sharing!

  7. Interesting to see so many comments on the Griffin Powerdock. With 3 iPads, 2 iPhones and a Kindle in our household, we are in the process of getting our hands on one of those also! :)

  8. Everyone seems to be interested in the powerdock, but I don’t have any tablets so it would not be high on my list. I might be more interested in the shirt pack or the travel organizer.

  9. Ah, I see… personally, I just have an iPhone also. In fact, I’m the only member of the family not to have an iPad, but I have access to one whenever I need… ;)

  10. If you want my honest opinion, Valentine’s Day is a commercial con that makes guys and girls alike feel obliged to make overpriced purchases on a day when in reality does it matter what day of the year you make a purchase for that special someone in your life. Ok rant over!

    Looks like there are some great products here but if I had to choose any to request from Heather I would go with the Griffin Powerdock. I am an iPhone 5, iPad Mini and MacBook Air user so that dock would come in particularly useful to store everything in one spot.

  11. My wife gave me the Griffin Powerdock 5 for my birthday this year. Glad to see you included it here. I very pleased that it works well and saves me many headaches on the road.
