Wham BAM! I looked up at my calendar this morning and realized that Valentines Day is like 2.5 seconds away. Our tradition has always been to skip the overcrowded restaurants and set menus, and stay home on the actual day. We exchange thoughtful gifts and have a laugh together. Last year, my hubby loved the figura personalizada I got him and still has it in his office to this day! I’d call that a pretty successful gift! Usually, his gift to me is a three course meal. The Husband loves to cook and it’s one of the only times during the year that I will let him completely destroy the kitchen all in the name of love. And of course, as a gesture of my profound gratitude for our meal (usually Osborne Family spaghetti) I must of course give him a token of my love and affection. This year I’ve been looking at this Lampe de lune photo personnalisÃ©e (personalized photo moon lamp) to show him my love and appreciation, but I’ve got quite a few gifts in mind. Naturally, every man is different, and what impresses my husband might not be something that someone else appreciates. For example, if your partner loves gadgets, taking a look on TechStyle.nyc might be the best option for you. However, don’t feel like your gift has to be the most expensive or the highest quality materialistic item that you can find that completely blows your budget out of the water. There are presents that you can look into that are much cheaper, and will bring a laugh out of your loved one. For instance, Get custom boxers with the face of your choice on them (I imagine it’d be yours!), and watch his face when he opens them! It’ll definitely bring out a chuckle in both of you, but the originality will also be appreciated.
SO, here are a few things that are in the running for his Valentines’ Day gift.
Exemplaire – Patterned-Knit Cashmere Sweater
Nothing says love like a cozy cashmere sweater. Last week I popped over to a friends house and made a comment about her snuggly “jumper.” Turns out it was her Husband’s Christmas present. Moral of the story? Buy it for him and then steal it.
Master & Dynamic – MH40 Leather Over-Ear Headphones
Thank GOD someone ha created chic looking man headphones, because I for one am sick and tired of looking at the Dr Dre ones. These Master & Dynamic ones have a vintage feel which I am totally loving.
Baxter of California – Full-Size 4-Piece Shower Kit
I don’t know about you, but I have a Husband who is quite frequently absent. Early morning packing for business trips makes no one happy when certain men are fumbling in the bathroom trying to get their favorite soap packed. This shower kit can easily be thrown into a suitcase at a moment’s notice and therefore, makes everyone happy.
Taschen – 75 Years of Marvel Comics: From The Golden Age To The Silver Screen
Mini AB has developed an obsession with superheroes, so I suppose this is a gift for him too. If you have to have comics lying around the house, then this is your best option. Perfect for his home office or mancave.
BYREDO- Sunday Cologne Eau De Parfum Vetiver, Bergamont, 50ML
Because YOU want HIM to smell nice, and you want your bathroom counter to look pretty. Simple as that. I also think that Husband and I are in a perfume and cologne rut, so experimenting with some new scents is definitely in the cards.
Lanvin- Rhodium Plated Onyx Button Covers
Love a man with a good cuff-link collection. These are super duper chic and can go to the office everyday or a black tie ball at night.
COMME DES GARÃ‡ONS, Half-Zip Leather Wallet
Boys don’t have a lot of opportunity to create a pop of color in their wardrobe. Ties and socks are pretty much the only option when it comes to weekday self-expression. Out with the boring black wallet and in with this blue textured number.
All gifts available at Mr Porter.
