It’s that time of year again, and the chance to celebrate your beloved with a well chosen gift or romantic gesture. Whether your partner is a foodie, a tech fan or a lover of the outdoors, our selection of luxury Valentine’s Day gifts for him is sure to please.
Luxury Valentine’s Day Gifts for Him
The Secret Shoe
If your loved one fancies himself as James Bond then The Secret Shoe by Oliver Sweeney is the perfect gift. This derby is made to order in Italy and comes with a choice of 12 concealable gadgets in the sole including the world’s smallest phone, a tracking device, a miniature video camera and a Swiss army knife. The sole has space for 3 gadgets as well as a spare house key, and the laces can actually be used as a friction saw to cut through plastic or wood! Finally, you can get your blood type or name inscribed on the sole.
The Stylish Shirt
Elegant men will be delighted with the eyecatching casual shirts from luxury British shirtmaker Worboys. The quality is superb and the floral, geometric and paisley designs work equally well for work or leisure. Made from the finest European woven poplin, they come in regular or slim fit and are reasonably priced at £75. We particularly like the Seville shirt with its cool paisley pattern.
The Craft Gin
Gin lovers will be impressed with this gift set from the Bruichladdich Distillery. The Botanist gin contains 9 gin botanicals as well as 22 local herbs and flowers. These are foraged responsibly on the Hebrides island of Islay by a team of botanical scientists. The gift box has a stunning glass mixing jug together with a 70cl bottle of The Botanist gin. It’s a complex gin which undergoes a double infusion, giving it superb citrus and floral notes.
The Smooth Bourbon
Bourbon is a popular choice with discerning drinkers and Woodford Reserve Distiller’s Select is the cream of the crop. It comes in a handsome glass bottle but it’s what’s inside that’s really impressive. It’s the only bourbon to be triple distilled in copper pot stills, ensuring great balance and depth. It’s said that there are over 200 identifiable flavours including vanilla and tobacco spice – have fun trying to work them all out! Stockists include Waitrose and Sainsbury’s, and it retails at £30.
The All Purpose Hiking Shoe
If your partner is a fan of the great outdoors, these stylish Arrowood Lux hiking boots in full-grain waterproof leather from Teva are a winner. Smart enough to wear at the weekend in town yet sturdy enough for a hike up a mountain, they’re a great compromise. They come in black or tan, our personal favourite, and incorporate FloatLite™ technology.
The Feel Good Fragrances
Bentley Momentum and Bentley Momentum Intense are two fresh new fragrances by the luxury car maker, created by master perfumer Nathalie Lorson. Bentley Momentum has aquatic notes combined with bergamot, violet, sage, ambergris, sandalwood and tonka bean. Bentley Momentum Intense is more concentrated in perfume, with lavender, geranium and amber accents creating a pleasing accord.
The Coffee Fix
Cuisinart has a cool new bean-to-cup coffee machine, enabling you to grind the beans yourself at home. Easily control the strength of your coffee and minimize the impact on the environment with the One Cup Grind & Brew Coffee Machine. It’s easy to clean as all removable parts can be placed in a dishwasher.
The Chic Backpack
A smart backpack such as this leather one by Knomo will come in very handy for travelling and with several pockets it’s roomy enough to fit all his gear inside. There’s a padded section for laptops, a pocket with RFID blocking for storing your bank cards, detachable back straps and key chain. You can also register your bag and if you lose it, the person who finds it can return it to you via the website.
The Noise-cancelling Headphones
Headphones are another great gift that will please music lovers or regular travellers. We like this wireless WH-H800 pair from Sony which come in a subtle rose-gold colour, black. green or blue. They really drown out ambient noise and useful for watching videos and films without disturbing your partner, as well as when travelling. They fold away into a handy carrying case and have a built-in microphone so you can take phone calls easily too.
What do you get for the man who has everything? An unforgettable experience should fit the bill nicely. Adrenaline junkies will enjoy the new submersible experience on the River Thames by Predator Adventures. This Seabreacher watercraft resembles a killer whale and is the only one of its kind in the UK.
The Boys Toy
The new DJI Mavic Air is a must-have for gadget lovers. Up to now, drones have been rather cumbersome yet this one fits lots into a neat little package, from 4K 100 Mbps video to a 3-axis gimbal camera and slow-motion video. It has a 3D foldable design and a foldable remote controller too.
It’s not always easy finding the right gift for that special someone yet we hope that these luxury Valentine’s gifts for him have given you a few useful ideas.
