Gift ideas for Men


I always find men are usually quite hard to buy for, however there are some really nice things dotted around to please the man in your life 🙂

JOOP Splash Deodorant 

Hugo Boss Feel Good Summer

Hugo Boss Hugo 

Black Lanson Champagne

Next Leather belt

Next accessories 

Leather wallet from Gianni Conti in Brown

The JOOP Splash Deodorant smells lovely! Really an attractive scent for men. Their scents are gorgeous too so they are also worth checking out, such as JOOP Jump and Joop GO!

The Hugo Boss fragrances are very masculine and scrumptious, I’m always impressed with BOSS when it comes to creating fragrances for men (& women).

Other great options for men & women are the 007 fragrances for both men & women! Also Lacoste Live is a great choice for men too.

Champagne is always a good option, Black Lanson is rather luxurious but it’s delicious, perfect to share with some dark chocolate truffles perhaps 🙂

Next do impress with their accessories for men, the belts are always a good choice there as are the accessories.

A wallet is always a great gift choice, getting the perfect fit is important for men so be sure to go for a medium size that they can fit in their back pockets or jacket pockets. The one I have chosen here is from Gianni Conti, so it’s harder to find in a short space or time however if you look you can find other great leather wallets in either Next or M&S.

M&S also do a great range of lounge wear too for guys, the atmosphere collection is quite impressive!

Valentine’s Day is all about love 🙂 So just remember to enjoy, love is the greatest gift of all. If you’re single this Valentines Day go spend it with friends or, simply treat yourself to something special (hopefully the list above will help) 😀

No matter how you’re celebrating or not celebrating, make Valentine’s Day a cheerful day. A simple smile to a stranger could quite simply make their day, and be the greatest gift of all.

Enjoy guys whatever you’re doing!
