Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity to exchange gifts with your man and while your guy might be gifted in planning a romantic night out, he’s probably lacking in the style department. Here are some fashion gift ideas to bring out the best in him.
Every guy should have a scent and deodorant and ‘natural musk’ just doesn’t cut it. Guys aren't too fussed. Simply pick a fragrance you like and buy it for him, simple as that. If he’s not convinced use words like ‘I love the way you smell, it’s sexy’ and he’s sure to keep splashing it on.
All ladies would agree that a good, strong belt is a must have. There's nothing worse than low-riding baggy denims. A reversible leather belt, black on one side with brown on the other, makes for an ideal gift and will add some class to his office or formal wear. Plus, a good belt can last a lifetime.
A dressy black jacket or sports blazer is a guy wardrobe staple and will compliment any outfit. He could go for the Indie rock look with a T-shirt underneath the blazer, or formal look with an open-collar shirt. It’s flexible enough to be worn for any occasion.
Shaving razor and brush
Disposable razors are expensive, at least the blades are anyway, and electric shavers have to be constantly recharged. A traditional straight razor and shaving cream brush makes for a classy gift. Plus he won't have an excuse for rocking that five ‘o clock shadow any longer.
Given that a scarf only comes in one size and is stylish no matter the outfit, it's hard to go wrong with this gift. Choose a material like wool or cashmere as it’s less abrasive on the skin, and avoid flashy colours or patterns.
Every working man or student needs a good bag that can fit his notebooks and gadgets. Add some practical style to his life by buying him a leather messenger bag. It versatile enough to double as a lap-top bag or an over-night bag.
Guys will always choose takkies over dress shoes, but that doesn’t mean they have to be the old worn-out type. A pair of good sneakers, especially leather ones, add a little something extra to an outfit.
This one is unisex, as there’s no better addition to snuggling up on the couch watching TV or playing games than having a comfy throw available.
Before whipping out your cell phone, you needed a watch to tell the time. Even if he isn’t a watch-wearing guy, you’ll notice a drastic improvement in style when your guy is wearing a classic wristwatch. Try something simple, like a chunky silver watch with a leather band or you could opt for something a lot more quirky depending on his personality.
