I wanted to put together a gift guide of cool and stylish items for the special her or him in your life. There’s something for everyone in this selection of Valentine’s Day 2019 gifts.
Nordgreen Philospher Rose Gold Watch in Navy Blue* – £154, Nordgreen
This simplistic rose gold watch comes with a blue nylon strap, but the straps are interchangeable if you want to switch up the colour. For Valentine’s Day you can get 15% off the price above, on their online store. This brand focusses on a minimalist design and high quality inner workings. The watch feels very luxurious. One of the other things I love about this independent brand is that they use some of the profits from each watch to help society and the environment – giving clean water and education to children in Africa, or adding 200 square feet of rainforest to Latin America. Their watches are also unisex, so look amazing on men or women’s wrists.
LOVE Typographic Print A3* – £29, Rocket Jack Design
I love the modern, bold design of this typography print. It’s printed in stunning deep black ink, on thick, quality paper. It’s a gift that any partner would love, and you are supporting an independent Etsy designer, which is always good! You can pick up some really simple, bargain frames from the likes of B&M, making it a really affordable present for the special person in your life.
Drinks by the Dram Valentine’s Whisky Set* – £19.95, Master of Malt
If your partner is a whisky lover, these Drinks by the Dram sets are a great way for them to try different whiskies without investing in a full bottle. They might just discover their new favourite! This set is a special edition for Valentine’s Day and has some great Scottish and special cask single malts and blended whiskies, with all the bottles stylishly sealed with wax.
Starskin Leading Man Bio-Cellulose Mask* – £8.50, Debenhams
Yes, everyone can use every face mask on the planet, regardless of their gender; but this mask is specially developed for men, as they mainly shave their faces and typically use less daily skincare, for example. It’s formulated with coconut water and shea butter to hydrate and condition the skin, Panax Ginseng to rejuvenate the skin, anti-ageing Adenosine and Black Raspberry, as well as soothing, redness-reducing Beta-Glucan and Aloe Vera.
Gentlemen’s Hardware Personalised Handy Man Tool Kit* – £44.99, The Gift Experience
Who thought tools could be sexy?! This is one very stylish and chic tool box, and you can even have a personal message engraved onto the wooden box. It’s a great, light-hearted gift for guys who love doing odd jobs, to those who usually run for the hills. There is a screwdriver with a variety of different bits, pliers, a hammer, a pencil, conversion tables and more.
Personalised Oak Technology Stand* – £40, Happiness is a Gift
If your partner works in an office, or just likes to keep things organised, such as their bedside table, this heavy oak phone stand and tray looks really cool, and you can have their name or initials engraved on this front. There are so many possible uses for this and it looks and feels very high quality.
Lucky Cloud Skincare Mini Nourishing Skincare Kit* – £25, Lucky Cloud Skincare
I cannot rave about this independent Scottish skincare brand enough. This is a great little kit for men or women as it contains things that everyone will need. It’s designed to nourish and condition the skin, so contains a lavender and rose-scented multi-purpose balm (that smells INCREDIBLE), a coconut lip butter, a cleansing balm that’s a perfect size for travel, and a face (or beard) oil. It’s all natural, as well as 100% cruelty-free and Vegan.
Land’s End Men’s Leather Bi-Fold Wallet* – £50, Land’s End
If the guy in your life is on the lookout for a new wallet, this black leather one from British fashion brand Land’s End is a simple and chic choice. The leather has been ‘double-dipped’ to stop wear and tear, making this a wallet that will age beautifully. It has six card slots, and two money note slots, that are lined with soft cotton.
Ross & Ross The Man Box* – £22, Ross & Ross
Stereotypically, this is called The Man Box as it contains 4 food and drink products that humourously, men are thought to typically like. The items in this box are from great, independent British brands – there’s a Cotswold Lager bottle, a packet of Mr Trotter’s Pork Crackling, a salami from The Cotswold Curer, and a Ross & Ross Apple Chutney.
All of these products were sent to me as press samples, but all opinions are my own.
