Valentines Gift Guide - For Him

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....
