Women are fairly easy to buy for right?  Men are a little harder. OK a lot harder! As Lucy Mangan of stylist.co.uk puts it "Men have fewer, narrower interests. They don't dabble, they pick a past time and hobby the hell out of it". 

My partner Dave works in a practically all male environment, so I asked him to ask his colleagues "what would be their perfect Valentine's gift from the lady in their life?" I stated that the gifts had to be clean/non sexual.  The response?  "I think that's going to be a little difficult Jo. I would consider blogging about something else!"  WHAT?

So I ignored his response and did a little research on the web.  Turns out Dave was largely right,  however my research found that men prefer something a little more personal rather than the usual aftershave or Calvin Klein boxers.  With that in mind I scoured the web and found 10 fantastic, unique gifts ideas for your man on Valentine's Day.

In no particular order...

1. Couples massage

Not only does he get a treat but you do too! What could me more romantic then the two of you relaxing together at a beautiful spa somewhere.  To find a spa near you in an instant check out this Spa Finder here

2. Personalised leather bracelet

Get personal with Gracie Collins For those men who like their wrist bands I think this lady had some stunning designs for men which you can subtly personalise.

3. Engrave a leather wallet with your own picture & words

NV London Calcutta. I love this company!  They beautifully personalise leather, from wallets to leather weekend holdalls.  Not only that but give them a photograph and they can have that engraved onto his wallet as well.

4. A romantic weekend away

Valentine's Day is on a Saturday this year, perfect! For couples on their own take a look at Visit England or your romantic getaway.  If the babysitters are unavailable or they just always let you down, take a look at Baby Friendly Bolt Holes for super child friendly accommodation.
