Valentine’s Day Gift Guide 2018 – What to buy for the man in your life

This post may contain affiliate links.

This year I thought I’d bring you something a little different for Valentine’s Day! My Valentine’s Day Gift Guide 2018 is going to focus on the man in your life, rather than being a list of items that women would love to receive. My husband is a hard worker and while our Valentine’s Day this year isn’t going to be too great, as my Mum is having open heart surgery that day, I’ve got him a lovely array of items to gift to him and make him feel loved and appreciated. Here is my Valentine’s Day Gift Guide 2018 – What to buy for the man in your life! 

Valentines Day Gift Guide 2018

I’ve got a nice array of different gifts here, to suit most budgets and tastes!

Valentines Day Gift Guide 2018 - Valentines Day Card

First things first… A Valentine’s Card! This is just 59p from Home Bargains and the first few items I’m going to show you here are all from Home Bargains. Every year I write my husband a soppy note about the past year, and what I want for the year ahead. It doesn’t matter if the card is 59p or £5.59 so why not save some pounds for a gift?

Valentines Day Gift Guide 2018 - Elephant from Home Bargains

This super cute elephant plush is just £2.49 from Home Bargains! My husband doesn’t get a soft toy from me often, so I figured this was cute!

Valentines Day Gift Guide 2018 - Pants and socks

No Valentine’s Day would be complete without a little love heart adorned clothing! The socks are 99p and the boxers are just £2.99 from Home Bargains. A bargain!

Valentines Day Gift Guide 2018 - Chocolate Rose

This chocolate rose is just 99p and is ideal if you want to make a sweet gesture without spending lots! Again this bargain is from Home Bargains.

Valentines Day Gift Guide 2018 - Love Potion Cup

Recently I treated myself to a super cute Ban.do cup and my husband was jealous! This love potion cup is HUGE, and is just £2.99 from Home Bargains! This is ideal for stopping Daisy, or the cats, from spilling all of our drinks.

Valentines Day Gift Guide 2018 - Heart shaped frying pan Home Bargains

Last up from Home bargains is this mini frying pan! It’s in the shape of a heart. Ideal for making pancakes or an egg for a bargain Valentine’s Day breakfast. This is £1.29! I’m going to use it to cook my Mum something cute when she’s home from her heart surgery!

Valentines Day Gift Guide 2018 - Moosehead products

Moosehead Hair Styling products aren’t something that I have ever seen before. Moosehead is Australia’s number 1 men’s grooming range and they offer designer styling products at affordable prices. These products are just £4.99 each, a shaping dough and a forming wax, and they are available from Tesco, Superdrug and Waitrose. I’m hoping my husband will grow his hair back now! 

Valentines Day Gift Guide 2018 - Buff Hat

We’ve been fortunate enough to receive hats from Buff in the last, at Christmas time, and now I’ve been able to choose this stylish hat for Thomas. If you’re someone who follows me on Instagram you’ll know that Buff hats feature in my Instastories really frequently. They are comfortable, warm and great quality too. This particular hat, the Dorian Blue Ink Hat, retails for £30.76.

Valentines Day Gift Guide 2018 - Avail London Shirt

Most special events can be made that much more special with a nice piece of clothing. Something that is going to last a while, fit well, and be comfortable to wear, is always a winner in our home. The Khaki Grandad Collar Muscle Fit Shirt from Avail London, available for £34.99, is a muscle fit stretch shirt, slim fit in design, with an on-trend Grandad collar. It has a 2 button cuff with a curved hem and it is a lovely colour that goes with most outfits.

Valentines Day Gift Guide 2018 - 31Dover Peaky Blinders Irish Whiskey

We love a nice whiskey in our home! This particular Whiskey is triple distilled and aged in sherry casks. There is a whole range of Peaky Blinder spirits, including this whiskey, rum and gin. This range is new for 2018 and of course named after the well-known TV show. My husband was thrilled when I unboxed this, best of all it is a genuinely fine whiskey! This retails for £24.99 per 70cl and is worth every penny. Also, 31Dover, who sell this whiskey and lots of other delicious alcoholic drinks, offer next day delivery as standard and this is free when you spend more than £49. This is ideal for last minute gifts and splashing out for that special occasion.

Valentines Day Gift Guide 2018 - Zippo Lighter

My husband loves to smoke a cigar from time to time. This isn’t a habit that I really encourage, however, he has stopped smoking cigarettes and switched to the occasional cigar. Zippo has a fantastic range of windproof lighters for the smoker in your life!

Valentines Day Gift Guide 2018 - Sweet hamper from Lolly May

My husband and I have been healthy eating recently, so Valentine’s Day is a great time for a hamper of sweets! This hamper retails for £38.99 and contains a HUGE array of nostalgic sweets including love hearts, friendship rings and Jelly Babies. Pop on over to take a look at the contents yourself!

Valentines Day Gift Guide 2018 - Ultimate time together Smartbox from Buy A Gift

Getting to have time together as a couple is really important to the strength of our relationship. We have had a day out before, thanks to Buy A Gift, and were really pleased with the experience. The voucher that we received meant that we could both have a day out together, so we went to The Shard and out for dinner too. This Smartbox, Ultimate Time Together, allows couples to choose from 990 experiences. I searched my own postcode and within 25 miles from home there were experience days, days out, hotel stays, spa days and much more. This has an RRP of £129.99 and seems to represent great value for money. For example, we recently stayed at Manor of Groves, and we spent more money than the cost of this voucher. Also, the Smartbox would allow us to have dinner + breakfast as part of our hotel stay too. We are looking forward to using this later in the year!

Valentine's Day Gift Guide 2018 - Gold Aftershave

My husband is a big fan of aftershave and had requested something different recently. This Gold Aftershave Splash has a traditional feel and smell to it. No fancy bells or whistles means that this has an RRP of just £8.99! This scent has a spicy, oriental scent that combines with a burst of citrus and even a little lavender to make a really sophisticated scent that is lovely.

The 10 things I love about you lightbox, from Find Me A Gift, is lovely. Personalised with 10 things that I love about my husband. It is a great way to let someone know that you think about them and that the little things really do mean a lot. This is £39.99 and is a BIG seller – so if you’re interested go grab one now!

So there you have it! My wonderful husband is getting spoiled this Valentine’s Day! My Valentine’s Day Gift Guide 2018 is complete!

    Aww this is sweet. I feel that Valentine’s Day is just as much for men as for women. I also love the chocolate rose.

    • katykicker February 4, 2018 / 8:24 pm

      Me too! I’m hoping to eat some of the chocolate rose myself! x

  2. Starlight and Stories February 4, 2018 / 6:58 am

    I love that bobble hat, in fact I like it so much I could easily be tempted to keep it for myself!

    • katykicker February 4, 2018 / 8:25 pm

      I’ve already got a BUff hat for myself or I may just have done!

  3. Talya February 4, 2018 / 8:50 am

    Love the frying pan with the shape of the heart that is such a lovely idea! What a great way to serve up eggs on v day.

  4. Alexandria Iveson February 4, 2018 / 5:54 pm

    I’m really anti creating waste so am very mindful when it comes to purchases now – we tend to buy more practical gifts so the hat or whiskey would go down very well with my hubby!

    • katykicker February 4, 2018 / 8:26 pm

      I’m trying to be more like that too! The hat is lovely and my husband has been wearing it daily!

  5. Ruth Makes Money February 4, 2018 / 7:09 pm

    I had no idea you could get Peaky Blinder whisky!!! My boyfriend loves the series and loves whisky, so this has gone on my list. It’s so easy to buy a load of nonsense at Valentines, but booze is always a decent choice for him 🙂

    • katykicker February 4, 2018 / 8:26 pm

      Yeah my husband loves a bit of booze too! x

  6. Beth @ BethinaBox.com February 4, 2018 / 9:02 pm

    The Ultimate Time Together Experience sounds fab. Although, then I’d need to find a babysitter too.

    • katykicker February 7, 2018 / 6:49 pm

      Yeah that is the tricky part for us too! x

  7. Laura Dove February 4, 2018 / 9:51 pm

    Oh what fab gifts! I love the khaki shirt, my husband would love that for valentines! To be honest we don’t tend to buy gifts but I think I will surprise him this year!

    • katykicker February 7, 2018 / 6:48 pm

      That sounds like a lovely idea Laura! x

  8. Laura Dove February 4, 2018 / 9:51 pm

  10. The Frenchie Mummy February 5, 2018 / 6:59 am

    OMG!!!! the boxers and socks are just fab. I want them for Grumpy Boyfriend!

    • katykicker February 7, 2018 / 6:50 pm

      I wasn’t sure my husband would like them but he’s worn the socks already! x

  11. Melanie williams February 5, 2018 / 7:21 am

    Love the hamper and also the card from Home and Bargains, so much stuff in that shop – I can lose hours in there and spend more than I always plan too haha x

    • katykicker February 7, 2018 / 6:50 pm

      haha me too. Endless aisles of goodness!

  12. All About a Mummy February 5, 2018 / 9:33 am

    I think the sweetie hamper would go down well with Husband but the adventure together is a lovely idea. Dinner at the Shard = yum!

    • katykicker February 7, 2018 / 6:51 pm

      It was delicious! Still working through the hamper too – LOTS of sweets! x

  13. Rachael February 5, 2018 / 11:18 am

    Awww, I love the elephant plushie! I wish we had a home bargains round here. Sometimes I write my Mr a little letter of appreciation and pop it into a card. He’s not big on Valentine’s day and says that its about the girl and not about him, but I always feel guilty and want him to know he’s appreciated !

    • katykicker February 7, 2018 / 6:51 pm

      That is a lovely gift. The best ones are usually free too aren’t they! xx

  14. Emily Leary February 5, 2018 / 2:39 pm

    Lovely gifts! Now I need to decide which one(s) to buy. I think Mark might like the Khaki Grandad Collar Muscle Fit Shirt.

    • katykicker February 7, 2018 / 6:52 pm

      The shirt looks really nice on! x

  15. Jen February 5, 2018 / 6:33 pm

    I’ve never seen the Peaky Blinder whiskey before! That’s brilliant! Definitely one for my husband.

    • katykicker February 7, 2018 / 6:53 pm

      Seems to be pretty popular! x

  16. Emily Nellist / Babies and Beauty February 5, 2018 / 9:08 pm

    Such lovely pieces, I really love that mini egg frying pan. Though my OH is so greedy he probably wouldn’t notice the shape before he shovelled it down.

    • katykicker February 7, 2018 / 6:53 pm

      Haha – I love your honesty! x

  17. Mudpie Fridays February 5, 2018 / 11:08 pm

    The smart box sounds like a great idea. Its the one thing we don’t get enough of – time together. I will be looking into this. I am sure your husband will love all his gifts, hope you have a lovely day x

    • katykicker February 7, 2018 / 6:53 pm

      Yeah time together is always hard to come by as parents isn’t it x Thank you! x
