Mens Gifts - Valentines Day is coming...


It's not easy to buy a gift for your man.  A gift related to one of his hobbies, may be an easy choice but can be a little stressful if you are not sure exactly what he needs.  Buying clothes is also a tricky one, whilst you think he will look fabulous, he on the other hand may simply smile, say thank you and then somehow it will just hang in the wardrobe for the next 12-18 months!


Don't you find that the shops that offer "gadgets" for your men are simply awful?  You convince yourself that you will find something he has not seen before.  You may possibly get excited about the odd executive toy or two; but when you get into the detail it's a lot of money for something that is simply tat!


I've tried ladies to help you out here!  These are my top finds that possible may help you out for the forthcoming Valentines day!  Which by the way, my Hubby will still not let me forget how a couple of years ago our agreement of "not buying for each other" still meant that I should have got him a card!


The North Face E-Tip Gloves
£26.99
An embroidered logo brands stretchy, snug-fitting gloves ingeniously designed with X-Static® material at the thumbs and index fingers, allowing you to easily use touch-screen cell phones, laptops and MP3 players without removing your gloves.




I laughed when I saw this next one, but then I thought if your man is on the phone 24/7 this may not be such a bad thing!  The gold is a little blinging but it does come in black.

YUBZ - Retro Handset for Mobile Phones
£50 - Go old school with the Yubz (pronounced "Why You Busy") Retro Handset for Mobile Phones. Specially designed by the Yubz team in Las Vegas to offer functionality, fun and safety, while providing excellent sound quality and reducing 96% of mobile phone radiation.  The handset is designed to fit iPhones and blackberrys, and also features one button for answering calls and another for volume. Just plug-in, dial and talk in retro-style.




Now this one I can recommend!  Hubby & I watched the whole lot last year - it was brilliant! (A gift for him....but will be for you too!)
The Sopranos - Complete DVD set
Currently £48.99 on Amazon - An American TV drama about a character Tony Soprano who is an Italian-American mobster boss based in New Jersey - his trails & tribulations.






If you have found the perfect gift for him, then leave a comment on this post, to help the rest of us!  


If all else fails - I would opt for food.  It's true, the way to a man's heart is feed him well! Good food, good wine, a little desert! Another year sorted!
