The cheesiest day of the year is almost upon us. Leave the gorgonzola on the shelf and choose a gift that your man will actually love to receive. Fluffy teddies and sweetie thongs are not allowed.
Tasty treats: Get creative in the kitchen with this recipe for lemon and passionfruit cupcakes from Annie’s Noms. The images are enough to make your mouth water and the sunny flavours are great for brightening up a dreary day. Display in a decorative tin, wrapped up in tissue paper and don’t worry if they aren’t perfect, it all adds to the charm! Here's the link to the lemon and passionfruit cupcake recipe.
Beard Oil: Your boyfriend has decided to grow a full on hipster beard and he’s looking mighty fine but goddammit it’s so scratchy! Treat him (and save your face) with a beard oil. Soften those bristles and enjoy kissing your loved one with London Beard Company beard oils.
Cufflinks: These Alfred cufflinks in copper are absolutely beautiful and very special indeed. They are British made using precision engineering techniques and will add an elegant touch to a favourite suit.
Dapper Gift Set: Does your man like to stand out (in a good way)? Does he like to make a style statement that shows off his personality? These colourful laces and socks are a great way to add fun to any outfit. There are lots of colours to choose from so mix and match for a gift that isn’t too expensive – perfect for those newer relationships.
Date night: Forget the restaurant meal where you’re shoulder to shoulder with the couple on the next table, whilst being charged three times the price of their normal menu. Try your local independent comedy venue instead and remind each other of the fun you have together. Or if you’d like to really treat your loved one, check out the beautiful and romantic Hannah’s B&B here in Winchester. You’ll get the most amazing welcome along with afternoon tea, squishy sofas in front of a log fire and delicious homemade food. You won’t want to leave!
Leather Wallet: Is your man still using that Spiderman wallet he got on his 15th Birthday? Or is his wallet so battered he’s embarrassed to pull it out? Treat him to this beautifully made navy leather wallet (also available in black) that he’ll be wanting to pull out at every opportunity (and treating you more often).
I hope these ideas have helped take the stress out of Valentine's Day for you, now all that's left is to go and enjoy some sexy time with the one you love!
