Just when you thought you've aced the Christmas gift you bought for him, Valentine's Day has quickly come around. The aim this time is to gift that special man in your life with something that demonstrates your love and affection, without encroaching into the dreaded corny territory. To lead you down the right path, we've hand-picked 10 gifts that he'll actually want and love.
1. Burberry leather travel case
For the your jet-setting man who needs a little assistance in organising his business trips the stylish way.
2. Chopard L.U.C 1937 Classic watch
A watch is the male equivalent to fine jewellery. Present him with this clean and classic timepiece that will accompany him handsomely through the years.
3. Crate & Barrel flask with golf tees
Kill two birds with one stone with this whisky flask that also doubles as a golf tee carrier. It will make golfing sessions with clients all the more bearable. Trust us — he will thank you for it.
4. Gucci GG caleido backpack
Forget the briefcase. Hands free is the way to go. Up your man's corporate style quotient with a sleek backpack.
5. Nike Free Hypervenom 2 FS coated mesh sneakers
Sneakers are a no brainer. Which guy doesn't appreciate a good pair of functional and stylish kicks, especially ones from Nike. Opt for a pair in muted colours that will match with everything in his wardrobe.
6. Bang & Olufsen Bang-BeoPlay-A2
Think of this as the modern day boom box. Weighing just 1.1kg, the slim and sleek Bluetooth speaker crafted in aluminium boasts a 360 degree stereo experience. He'll also appreciate its portability with an adjustable premium leather strap.
7. Rainsong Studio Series S-OM1000N2 slim body acoustic guitar
Why buy a musical instrument? So that he can serenade you, of course. Also he gets to display it in this man cave to ramp up his cool factor.
8. Tom Ford Black Orchid Eau De Parfum
This luxurious noir scent — containing intoxicating notes of black truffle, black plum patchouli and, of course, the signature black orchid — is one that you can share with your man. Best of all, it's designed to work with your skin's natural pheromones, creating a personal fragrance that is unique to both you and him.
9. Derek Rose Nelson printed cotton pyjamas
Tired of your man wearing wife beaters and boxers to sleep? The only way to change that is to get him his first pair of luxe PJs. Once he's had a taste, he won't turn back.
10. Why You're So Awesome Fill In The Love Journal by Knock Knock
Love books are so 2000 and late. Instead, express your love through a fill-in-the-blank journal about how awesome he is — very tongue-in-cheek, very I-appreciate-you-but-not-in-a-cheesy-lovesick-way.
