It’s time to start thinking about a Valentine’s day gift ideas for him!
I have pulled together a selection of our best gifts for men that are a bit different to the standard tie and socks.
If you are looking to get a gift that is actually good and something they will appreciate rather than a cheesy gift.
First up is the the removable bike mudguard £20, these awesome inventions are designed to look cool and make sure you get no kick up dirt on a cycle. The creator of the Musguard wanted to make a mudguard that didn’t distract away from the bike, but rather complemented it. Whats more is that it is removable, it rolls up so that you can either keep it with you on the move or just roll it around the bike’s frame. They make a great gift for a commuter, or anyone who has a good bike .. that doesn’t want to get a dirty back! We do them in a range of colours (even more than the image below) so just pick the one that goes best with their bike.
Next is the Bellroy Slim Sleeve Wallet £59. These clever wallets hold up to seven cards and a ton of notes, slimming its contents down meaning no bulky wallet shape in your trouser pockets. There are also handy little extras like quick access slots and a pull-out tab to get out frequently used cards. It is a smart little gift that any guy is going to love.
For the tech lover, or pretty much anyone that has a phone and/or tablet is the Night Cable Charger from Native Union £40. The clever cable is designed with a knot anchoring the cable so that is does not fall off the edge at night. It is 3 meters long so gives you all the freedom you want when using your smart phone. And as a gift it is original and insanely useful!
Another truly awesome brand we stock is Sandqvist, a Swedish brand that make minimally designed and beautifully crafted bags and wallets. Two of their products that are particularly popular are the Stig Backpack £95, and the Mickel Washbag £49. The Sandqvist editions to our Valentine’s gift guide fall at the higher end of our Christmas present guide price list but worth every penny. Sandqvist bags perfectly embody cool Scandinavian design. Both made from hard-wearing cotton canvas for durability. The Stig backpack comes in a variety of great colours, you can’t go wrong, so just pick one.
And for the second bags brand on our list is Herschel. These bags are a little less pricey than the Sandqvist bags, and are probably the most popular bags brand at the moment, so you know what your getting! I have chosen to feature the Heritage Plus Backpack which is currently in our sale at £60. We have a ton of other Herschel bags, wallets and ipad sleeves in the Bear & Bear sale so go check it out!
Men love their gadgets, so next up is the second of our tech gifts for 2015 Valentine’s Day, the Iblazr LED camera flash £60 (for the premium version, also available in black for £40). The Iblazr is the first LED light for the smart phone, it plugs into a standard audio jack which you use to brighten up your camera shots, on your smartphone, iPad or camera. Some of our recommendations for how to use the iblazr are as a powerful torch, keyboard lighting or for superior exposure in pictures. As a gift it is super original, something they will be sure to appreciate.
For the last of the techy gifts are the WeSC Piston Street Headphones £30. As our best value headphones the Piston Streets are a great price for all of the features they have. An extra jack socket allows you to share music with someone else, their folding design allows you to compact the headphones down to travel size and they also have a hands-free microphone and remote controls. And of course they sound great with a frequency range of 10- 20 000 Hz.
For the last of our Valentines Gifts for him are our awesome Wood’d iPhone cases. These are the perfect gift for someone who has be given an iPhone for Christmas. The case is made from real wood and comes in a cool packaging that also works as a phone stand. All the prices vary with the different designs (around the £25 mark), so there is a huge range for you to pick the one he would like the most.
