    1. I’ve got one of these bags and they’re not just for a night away. A week rarely goes by without me using it and it’s still looking good.

  1. That stylish travel chess set is a great option for passing the hours on a long journey. You never know when you are going to be delayed but my husband will never get bored with chess.

    1. Yes, I’m a keen chess player myself. And, whilst you can easily plan on your phone or a tablet nowadays, there’s something nice about getting a proper board out to play.

    2. The thing is that when you get delayed you’re usually running low on phone power too. There are only so many charging points at an airport. I’ve noticed too that planes are banning charging packs. Mine used to be a life-saver. Better to have a traditional game of chess to occupy you.

  2. Those international adapter plugs are invaluable. I keep one in my case and never unpack it so that I don’t have to worry about adapters. I’ll get one for my husband so that he can do the same.

  3. Now that my husband has to travel into work again and has to use his bike, having a Evoc bike travel bag at home would be very useful. He’s only going in 2 or 3 days a week and the bag would be useful for keeping our hallway clean. I know – it’s supposed to be a present for him.

    1. Haha… if it keeps you happy too, Ellen, then that’s a bonus! I had never thought of using one just to keep a bike under wraps when not in use, but, as a household with about 6 bikes in it (we were at 8 at one point), I can see exactly where you are coming from!

  4. In some ways my boyfriend’s tastes are quite old-fashioned, although he prefers to call them classic. I just know that he would be over the moon with the luxury leather manicure set.

  5. Luckily my boyfriend is one of that new generation of men who take skincare seriously. I know that he would appreciate the ESPA skincare pack. After all I don’t want him looking a haggard 50 when he is only 40.

  6. I’ve been feeling the cold lately, it’s been a chilly start to the year. If my wife’s reading I desperately need one of those Helly Hansen Norfsjo Parka.

  7. Those Orlebar Brown red shorts are great. But I think I’ll keep them back as a present for when we go to the Maldives in April. It wouldn’t be right for something so stylish to make their debut at the local pool.

  8. From not having a clue on what to buy, after reading all these suggestions I’m now confused by too much choice. Thanks for putting together such a great selection.

  9. If you’re buying luggage then it’s impossible to do better than Samsonite. My Samsonite luggage has had a tough life and it keeps on doing the job.

  10. I’ve got one of those travel mugs and I use it far more than I ever thought I would. They certainly make great presents.

  11. As my ageing husband stiffens up a travel shoe horn would make his life a little easier. Though top notch hotels often provide a shoe horn.

  12. If this selection is typical of Valentine’s gifts that men are gonna be getting this year there’s gonna be a lot of happy guys around.

  13. I’m a bit surprised that you haven’t got any golf-themed gifts in here. It’s my partner’s main obsession and I never have a vlur about what to get him.

    1. Hi Fiona – we plan on having a golf-focussed gift round-up later in the year. I’m afraid it won’t help you for Valentine’s Day but hopefully it might be helpful for a future occasion.

  14. Why is it that men can never remember / be bothered to buy underwear and socks for themselves? Maybe it’s best if I take responsibility as those Calvin Klein briefs look very stylish.

  15. Those globes really are attractive and match well with that natural wood setting. I can see them taking pride of place in our living room.

  16. I’m trying to encourage my husband to take more care of himself. One of his friends moisturises twice a day. I think giving him The Cream could be a big hint that he should be doing more.

  17. There’s no doubt that my husband would love the G – Shock watch but I think that’s more a very special birthday present than a Valentine’s gift. I’m talking big birthdays that end with a zero here.

  18. There is something deliciously old school about that manicure set. Personally, I would be delighted to receive one.

  19. The canvass wash bag is the perfect gift for my boyfriend. I’m sure that he’s had his current wash bag since about the age of 9.

  20. Designers never fail to impress me with their clever ingenuity. Who’d have thought of the tongue as a love letter on that Nike trainer?

  21. My husband thinks that photography with a SLR, even if it’s digital, is becoming a retro hobby as most people use their phones as cameras. I think that leather camera bag would be very appropriate gift for his hobby.

    1. I think most serious photographers would still maintain the best results are achieved with a DSLR (or at the very least a good quality mirrorless camera). Although phones do produce some amazing results nowadays, you can’t pack the same quality into such a small lens.

  22. It’s so long since we’ve flown that we’ve almost forgotten about the downside of flying. I hope the Flight Essentials Kit gets a lot of use in the coming months.

  23. Interesting ideas. i must admit that the leather photo camera bag caught my attention because I need one. Now I am wondering whether to buy it for him and then ask him to give it to me or buy two of them from the start and everybody will be happy. Ha ha !

  24. I gotta give it to you, i’m not into material things and neither is my husband but I think he would actually like a lot of that weekend bag, chess set, globe, and adapter. well done!

  25. I love the colors of the Kenda decorative globe, it would look perfect on my fireplace mantle. Really like the style of the Vida Vida camera bag too, a bonus that it can be personalized. Great ideas!

  26. Nice list of Valentine’s Day gift ideas. My husband and I don’t typically exchange gifts but enjoy a nice dinner together. However, I will say that leather camera bag is gorgeous and I certainly wouldn’t mind receiving it!

  27. I just forwarded this post to my better half hoping she takes notice. Although Valentine’s Day is gone, the fabulous range of gifts still carry the same value. Love the collection.

  28. I checked the blog of Valentine’s gifts for her by you, and now I could see an entire list for him also. Very interesting. I feel the flight essentials kit is really essential, also the international travel charger adapter. I remember my guy going to 7/11 in Thailand for adapter as he traveled from India.

  29. Ooh! I love the idea of the water-resistant bag. I have a few travel bags, but none are water-resistant besides my suitcase. These are great ideas!!

  30. What a great list of products! My husband isn’t into stuff, but he will appreciate the chocolate truffel and manicure set. Of course he won’t say no to the watch. It’s pretty sleek!
