Valentine’s day gifts for your Man Valentine!!!

Congratulations.  You’ve waited until the last possible moment to buy a gift for your significant/insignificant other.  Here are some things that you should probably go buy now.  Like now.

Cologne

While I’m not one that makes a habit of sniffing men’s colognes at department stores, I have come across a few different ones that I find smell nice so I’m going to share those with you.

D&G The One for men

Dolce & Gabbana – The One

This is my favourite man-perfume. It smells fantastiqueee; fresh, but spicy at the same time. Even the bottle itself is something worthy of display.  Definitely my top recommendation because I think it would suit most guys who are passed the “Axe” stage (you know what I’m talking about).

Notes:

Grapefruit, Coriander, Basil, Cardamom, Ginger, Orange Blossom, Cedar, Tobacco, Ambergris.

Burberry – Brit For Men

How can you go wrong with a cologne that has Tonka Beans and Nutmeg as the main notes?

Notes:
Bergamot, Green Mandarin and Ginger Accord, Cardamom, Cedarwood, Wild Rose, Nutmeg, Tonka Beans, Oriental Woods Accords, Gray Musk.

Shirts

You’ve always wanted to give him a wardrobe makeover so here’s your chance.  Buy him clothes that you want him to wear.  That’s it.

Here’s what I like:

If he’s not preppy then buy him a band t-shirt. (Man)bitches love bands.

Rockabilia.com

Nerds, I’ve got you covered:

Wallets/bags

Fossil men’s wallet. Retail: $30-50

I highly suggest checking out stores like Winners or TJ Maxx for nice wallets at a very discounted price.

Aldo.com retail: $35

Food

Make him cake. I typed “cake recipe” into google and got a page full of options.  If you’re feeling festive then make one with valentines colours.

Or you could always buy a cake or chocolate.  I hear the grocery store has some nice pre-made ones 🙂

Give him a massage

Interpret that as you will…  If you want to make it extra special, use something like a massage bar from Lush.   Lush has a whole Valentine’s day section which includes a variety of soap, bath bombs and more all of which are V-day themed.  Most retail for around $10.

Some stuff that I think looks cool:

Lush “Tender is the Night” massage bar

Lush “Soft Coeur” massage bar

The Soft Coeur massage bar (last image pictured) is also edible which adds even more to the fun!

 

So hopefully this helped someone out a bit!  Just remember that most guys aren’t picky and half of them will forget that today is Valentine’s day anyway! :- )
