What the Man in Your Life REALLY Wants for Valentine’s Day
Valentine’s Day gifts can be a tricky purchase to make, especially for men. Women are easy; you’ve got flowers, chocolates, perfume and so on and this might explain why a survey by Finder.com found that the average man will spend £129.88 on his wife for Valentine’s Day whilst he’ll only get an average of £54.21 spent on him in return.
Men of all ages and backgrounds walk through the doors of our stores every day, so we like to think we know a thing or two about what men really want to receive as gifts, so we’ve put together this gift guide to help you pick the perfect present for the Mr in your life this Valentine’s Day.
Whether they’re a lover of shoes or find the task of buying them a chore, footwear is an excellent choice for men on Valentine’s Day.
If they’re a big fan of shoes then, of course, they’re going to appreciate a new pair for V-Day and even if they detest having to go shopping for new footwear, they’ll be delighted that you’ve done the hard work for them and kitted them out with some new kicks!
Justin Reece Tan ‘Ken’ Lace Up Brogue – £69.00
For the man who likes the classic look but with a twist, the tan ‘Ken’ brogues by Justin Reece may look like a standard pair of tan brogues at first glance but on second look you’ll spot the contrasting fabric panel at the top of the shoe, creating an eye-catching and unique design.
Ted Baker ‘Eeril’ Navy Lace Up Trainers – £79.00
If your other half is a bit of a trainer addict (and he probably is because according to The Industry, the average man now owns 19 pairs of shoes, 8 of which are trainers), then a pair of designer kicks is bound to put a smile on his face on Valentine’s Day!
We have a selection of Ted Baker trainers available at Slater Menswear but the Eeril navy trainers are particularly popular for their smart/casual look and mix of textures thanks to the multiple fabrics.
Fellini Tailored Blue Speckled Tailored Blazer – £59.00
If your Mr Right is a gent that likes to dress smartly for all occasions then a blazer is a guaranteed win for him!
The Fellini Tailored blue speckled tailored blazer is a perfect jacket for smart/casual occasions thanks to the classic navy colour but the speckled pattern adds something a little special to this comfortable tailored fit blazer.
A matching waistcoat is also available if you really want to make your man look sharp for your upcoming events!
Guthrie & Valentine Shirts – £27 Each, 2 for £50, 4 for £90
The best kinds of gifts are the ones you both want and need which is why a quality shirt (or four) is a perfect present to show the man in your life that you love him.
Our Guthrie & Valentine shirt range is the perfect place to find a well-made and well-fitting shirt for your valentine and with multi-buy offers available for great value prices, you can pick up a selection of new shirts to keep him well stocked without blowing the budget!
Fellini Tailored Mother of Pearl Tie Bar & Cufflink Set – £16.00
Cufflinks and tie pins are two things that every man needs yet will never buy for himself which is why they’re always going to be a highly appreciated gift!
The Fellini Tailored Mother of Pearl tie bar and cufflink set is a bargain at just £16.00 and the subtle design is bound to suit every man’s style, making this a gift you can buy for your other half with confidence.
Barbour Lambswool Scarf – £22.00
Scarves aren’t something most men tend to think about buying themselves, so treating him to a quality lambswool scarf from the Barbour collection at Slater Menswear is a gift he’ll get plenty of use out of and we’re sure will be generally pleased with!
Slaters Hip Flask and Glasses Set – £12.00
If you’ve got a man who loves his whiskey then our hip flask and glasses set is a perfect present for him.
A stylish black and silver metal design, this quality yet compact gift set is ideal for a tipple at home or socialising with friends.
So, that’s what we think your other half really wants for Valentine’s Day but do you have any other suggestions?
