Unlike ladies, it’s not easy choosing gifts for men and most people have stuck to the underwear tradition for many years.

Enough is enough! If you must buy gifts, be creative about your selection.

If you have not made up your mind about what Valentine’s Day gift to get your lover or you’re stuck in the underwear era, here are ideas to get your creative juices flowing ahead of your romantic dinner tonight.


You can almost not go wrong with wristwatches. Whether leather or customised, all you have to do is get one that suits his preference.


You have a variety of options: Loafers, sneakers or leather shoes.

Coloured socks

Considering the fact that these are trendy at the moment, you can’t go wrong with them.


There will always be an occasion to wear a tie (even if doesn’t appear so right now). Get him a tie and he will remember you every time he has to wear it.


Not everyone is passionate about perfumes but you never know when it can come in handy.

Video games

With the passion and commitment most guys show to sports, video games will make them love you even more.


This might be an obvious gift choice but all you have to do is buy the type he likes, and you’ll put a smile on his face.


Even if he sags, he has to wear one of these and just like a lady can’t have too many shoes, a guy can’t have too many belts.


If he loves music, then these would be perfect for him. You can go an extra mile by making it customised.


He doesn’t have to be a fitness freak or a sportsman before you get him these. Most guys make this their ‘comfy outfit’ at home.


These days, guys are incorporating these into their outfits. If he has one already, this would be an addition to his collection and if he doesn’t, do the needful.


These can be budget friendly as you can get different types and a guy who loves his music or sports would appreciate these.

Wireless ear pods

Make him the envy of his friends (male and female) by getting these for him.


This would be a great gift especially if he is one to use a wallet for a year.


Like earrings for ladies, he can never have too many of these. Add to his collection.

Shaving set

Even if he is a member of the beard gang, he would still need to trim some off. If he is a man who likes his face shaven clean, this would be a nice gift.

Laptop cleaner

Considering the fact that almost everyone has a laptop and only a few clean it, this would be nice.

Customised mug

This would be a very cute gift especially if you inscribe a romantic message on it.

Cufflink case

Cufflinks are small objects that can get lost easily. Give him a cufflinks case to make sure he doesn’t lose any.


A guy can almost never refuse a pair of jeans trousers. Make him remember you every time he puts it on. You can spice things up by leaving a love note in the pocket.


If your man is a reader, you will be spot on by buying him a book from the writer or genre he loves.
