Don’t worry ladies, there’s still time to find the perfect gift for the special guy in your life. Read on for a number of Valentine’s gifts you can still pick up before the big day of love.
- iTunes Gift Card
If your guy loves music, films and books, this could be the perfect last minute gift for him. With an iTunes gift card, your other half can choose whichever apps, albums or books he wants. These gift cards can be bought for the value of £25, £50 and £100 and are available from many high street stores. If you are really pressed for time, however, it is possible to order the gift card online and send it to him by email.
- Spa voucher
Is your man not afraid to admit he loves a good pampering session? A spa voucher could be right up his street then. Many spas offer specialised treatments for men including massages, facials and grooming. Day Spa vouchers can usually be bought as packages, or you can leave it up to him to decide which treatments he wants with an open voucher. If you can purchase the voucher online, you should be able to send it to his email straight away. Why not be a little cheeky and get yourself a voucher too so you can enjoy a little indulgence and relaxation yourself?
If, like a lot of men, your partner despises shopping, then you could save him from this hell by buying him a new outfit. Pick him up a few shopping treats like a new pair of jeans and a t-shirt. Visit your high street shops of buy from an online retailer that offers next day delivery. Although it may not feel like it, spring is on his way so perhaps your guy could benefit from a few wardrobe essentials. Checked, cropped, and military style are all trouser trends predicted for this spring. Do a search online for more inspiration on men’s spring fashion trends.
- A meal
They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. Put this theory to the test with a delicious meal at a fancy restaurant. Perhaps pick his favourite place or somewhere he has always wanted to try. If you are stuck, a romantic French restaurant is always a winner. If you are feeling creative and hands-on, you may wish to consider cooking him a homemade meal. There are many romantic recipes you could choose from. Oysters, a spicy pasta dish and chocolate and strawberries are all foods of love.
- Day trip
Take your guy on a surprise day trip somewhere local and romantic. A long walk along the beach followed by a cosy lunch and drink in a pub could be just as romantic as any gift. Take a trip to a nearby park and surprise him with a picnic, complete with a bottle of bubbles. Finish of your day by going to the cinema or curling up on the sofa and watching a lovey-dovey film (if he’ll let you, that is!).
