Valentine’s Gift Ideas: For Him

Ahhhh!! Valentine’s Day!! If you’re anything like us here at Very HQ, this can be one of the most stressful times of the year. Picking restaurants, picking the outfits, getting your hair and nails done. And that’s just us boys! On top of all that, there are the gifts to think about; but have no fear ladies; once again, very_marc is here to save the day!

Whether you’re working on a budget, or you’re trying to go extravagant and make a real impression on your special someone, we’ve got you covered for anything you need. These are our picks to make the man in your life smile.

Novelty Gifts

We’ve got a great range of budget gifts under £20 here at Very. We’ve got everything from Novelty Gifts, to Sporting Gifts and everything in between. These are a couple of our favourites.

Purple Ronnie Mug – we know how good you think he looks with a silly smile across his face, and what better way to achieve that than the poetic comedy genius of Purple Ronnie? He’s been entertaining us for years and he might even make you a cuppa too when making the tea with this!

Doctor Who: The Doctor – His Lives and Times (Hardback) – If he’s anything like us, then he’s been hooked on Doctor Who since the 2005 reboot starring Christopher Eccleston as the ninth doctor. This book covers both the fiction with mocked-up posters, press cuttings and adverts, and a behind the scenes history of The Doctor.

Playing It Safe

These are a selection of our best selling aftershaves.

The Personal Touch
