Please excuse the lack of gift ideas for the gent in your life but from my experience (and perhaps yours) a lie-in, a tasty breakfast, a pint in the pub, followed by a film on the projector, will be appreciated more. Add some blooms to that list, and I’ll be happy too.
If you are celebrating on Sunday though, here’s some simple gift ideas that are a stylish alternative to a box of chocolates and a dozen red roses.
1| Barlow Earrings (£30) from Haykin. Simple. Timeless. French. What can I say?
2| C’est Si Bon Sweatshirt (£50) from Hush. This brand is grand and the sweatshirt is perfect for the music lover in your life.
3| Say it with flowers with this delightful Rifle Paper Co. Journal (£13.00) via The Paper Parlour.
4| Menfolk. Lots of lasses I know love candles. Not all, but a lot. Take note. This stylish candle (£17) from & Other Stories will do the job nicely. You’re welcome.
5| Toys aren’t just for kids. This Soft Toy (£48.50) from The Pippa and Ike Show is an alternative choice for the softy in your life.
6| Taking the next step in a relationship? Empty a bedside drawer in your home for your new beau to keep their bits and pieces in. Have a spare toothbrush on hand like this from Future and Found or go one step further and gift a spare key to your home with a key ring – these cord key rings from Haykin are tip-top.
7| Know your OH’s favourite novel? Look out for new illustrated copies or journals like Jane Eyre (£14) from Anthropologie.
8| Calling all list makers! Treating yourself this Sunday? How about this Kate Spade Pen (£30) from Amara?
