  1. I’m always trying to persuade my husband that investing in a good belt, like Bvlgari, is a good investment. He could wear it with so many different trousers.

    I think I’m going to have to take fashion responsibility and get him one as a present.

  2. My partner desperately needs one of those leather Weekender bags. The bag he uses at the moment is falling apart.

  3. No doubt that the travel pin map is the present for my boyfriend. He collects countries like other people collect fridge magnets.

    1. Hi Natasha – those maps are very nicely done, and come with beautiful frames. You can use them to plan future travels, as well as record past adventures.

  4. Incredible – it only seems 5 minutes ago that I was putting my thinking cap on for Christmas presents.

    Many thanks for this list, surely I should find something suitable here?

    1. Hi Monica, it’s amazing how time flies, isn’t it? I’m glad you found the Valentine’s gift list helpful. With so many great options, I’m sure you’ll find something suitable for your special someone. Good luck with your search!

    2. That Bremont Supernova is quite a major purchase. Then again, we are celebrating a quarter of century of marriage and 28 years since our first Valentine’s evening together. Plus 2 children and several dogs.

  5. Thanks to the cost of living crisis, I haven’t got too much spare cash to splash on my boyfriend at the moment.

    Getting him a pair of those flip-flops would be a promise of great times ahead in the summer.

  6. My husband never wears sunglasses and we have 2 or 3 holidays a year where we escape to blinding sunlight.

    Possibly a pair of those stylish Santos de Cartier sunglasses may get him to change his ways …

  7. My wife’s never given me a Valentine’s present before. If she is going to break the habits of a lifetime I’d love one of those charging trees.

  8. That roller bag slash backpack could be a down payment on some nice travels ahead once we escape from the grim depths of winter.

  9. This may be the age of I-pads and other devices, though it’s still nice to jot down memories on paper.

    That wraparound journal would be a perfect gift for my partner as he likes to keep a record of his travels.

  10. I’m a bigger gin fan than my husband and that’s a good enough reason to get him some premium gins from Shed One.

    Don’t get me wrong, he still enjoys his gin.
    After all Valentine’s Day is all about sharing isn’t it?

    1. That is the nice thing about gifting an experience, Grace.. it’s invariably something you can enjoy together. Wonderdays has some great options, including balloon rides for two which we featured in one of our Christmas gift round-ups.

  11. I’ve been waiting for this gift guide, it’s the only way that I ever get any inspiration! Thank you.

    1. Awww, thank you Eileen… that is very kind. We do try to have a varied selection, so I’m very pleased to hear that you come here for your gift inspiration!

  12. There are just too many options for my wife to chose from. Then again…it’s all about who it gives and not what they give, even thought the latter is always a nice bonus when its something you really like.

  13. I had probably best not mention any brand names but I really don’t like my partner’s current eau de cologne. I’m going to try him with a bottle from dunhills. I’d prefer to stick with that.

  14. If you live in the UK you’re never too far away from your next drizzle or downpour. That umbrella from the Brolly Store looks really slick. Stylish and practical too.

  15. Although my partner is relatively well remunerated for a job that probably involves far too much travel for his health and sanity, he never invests in any clothing or kit that might make his life a little bit easier.

    On the flip side it does make buying presents for occasions like Valentine’s Day a whole lot easier for me.
