That time of year has come again where cupid strikes! Some people will have been planning for the last month and will shower their loved ones with gifts, others a card and a list with suffice. If you are somewhere in the middle and looking fora treat for the special man in your life, I've come up with a few suggestions that are achievable by Sunday.
Fragrance is an obvious choice, but choosing which your man will like can be tricky. Go for his favourite, or tuck a tester that you’ve sprayed in the shop in, so if its not up his street he can exchange without opening! I love the new fragrance from Jimmy Choo - Man which has is really fresh despite having masculine undertones. Order from Boots (£41.50/50ml) for Click and Collect next day from your local store. I
f your man is a foodie and still on the new year health wagon, how about this cook book from Hemsley & Hemsley? (The Art of Eating Well) Also a sneaky tree for you if he cooks you some yummy dinners! Order on Amazon Prime (£11.75) for next, or even same day delivery.
A bottle of his favourite tipple is another winner - which you can pick up from your local supermarket very easily. Mr BMB is a G&T man so Hendrick’s Gin (£26 Sainsburys) will be perfect - and I’ll stock up on some Fever Tree Tonic and cucumber for Sunday too.
Got a fitness fanatic? Well even if they don’t go to the gym as much as they’d like to admit the Garmin Vivoactive will also pair with a smart phone so you can see alerts on the go, along with having built in fitness apps. Available from John Lewis, (£159.99) so you can click and collect from Waitrose hassle free.
Finally, cufflinks are always a handy gift and (if you had more tim on your hands!) you can get some really lovely personalised ones. However, time is of the essence, so a nod to a favourite sport is a thoughtful suggestion. Rugby is Mr BMS’s sport of choice so these oval ball cufflinks will suit him down to the ground. Here are some similar from John Lewis (£15).
So tomorrow it is time for the ladies - its candle and fragrance heavy with some other little treats to hint at too....
