10 Valentine's gifts for him and her
Who's saying what
If you’re any kind of a good boyfriend/girlfriend you should be there 24/7 to hold your girl’s hands to protect them from the cold. But for the times you can’t be there, some slick leather gloves will do the job – and they’re more stylish than you.
Go for something a little cute and kitsch like this luscious lip-emblazoned top, tell her "Your Kiss Is On My List (Of The Best Things In Life)" and dance around the living room to Hall & Oates. Heaps romantic.
They're French, they're sugary and she'll think that you're pretty sweet too.
Keep her out of the wind and the rain in style with a fresh floral patterned pocket umbrella (-ella-ella-ay-ay-ay). Be a gent and hold it for her.
Perfume is an awesome gift because she'll think of you every time she wears it. These cute mini rollerballs will fit into her handbag or wallet.
Need we say more? They're cupcakes. You can't go wrong. The effort and love that goes into baking will earn you serious brownie points. Or just buy them and pretend you made them.
Light them up on Thursday night, put on some mood music and watch the magic. They even have instructions for you both written on them. Cheesy but perfect.
Turn the traditional notion of flowers on its head - that will throw her.
The only thing better than waffles is waffles shaped like symbols of your undying love. Don't wince when she stabs it with her fork.
So much better than a real puppy. Real puppies require lots of attention and cleaning and they don't even hold up your books for you like this guy does.Him
Because you know he'd appreciate the ceremony of good quality shaving equipment rather than a two-buck disposable razor. Or maybe you just want to subtly hint that that hipster beard is getting a little too prickly.
For the camera nerd in your life. It might take him a while to get used to the fact that he's not, in fact, pouring hot liquids into a precious lens.
If your standard pet names for each other include "my little Wookiee" then this is his kind of thing. Light it up on V-Day, and may the force be with you.
Get him in the mood with these and then find the right moment to say "I'll always pick your stick". Guaranteed to work*.
A classic option - if he's a man of style, he'll appreciate your taste; if he's not, well, he's now on his way.
Make him a mixtape/usb/CD to go with it and you have the perfect new age take on a Valentine's classic.
It will have him saying those three little words you've been waiting for: om nom nom.
There's some kind of instinct that makes a man who smells good infinitely sexier than one who doesn't. This is a gift for you as much as for him.
If he fancies himself as a cocktail connoisseur, this serious, old-school-looking book is a fantastic point of reference for him to expand his repertoire (and work those guns with a bit of shaking).
And if he's too blokey for cocktails, this will expand his horizons (and his palate) and insert a little thinking into his drinking.
*not actually guaranteed.
