In these cold, cold times, keep your loved one warm in these brightly coloured snuggly socks from Urban Outfitters. Great for commuters as they are thick and hard wearing. Can't go wrong with socks!

2. Phone Case! (Retro Camera Phone Case £12.00)
Help keep your better halves gadgets safe with retro, funky cases. They are available everywhere, for every gadget you could ever think of. Very cool. Very Practical. 

3. Aftershave! (Diesel Only The Brave EDT 50ml £38.50)
Buying your man an aftershave is not only a treat for him, but a treat for you, too! Be sure to shop around for your favourite scent as well as one your man will like. Only The Brave is my favourite man-smell of the moment.

Here is what The Perfume Shop has to say about it's notes:

Heart notes
Labdanum Heart, Violet Leaves, Rosemary
Top notes
Lemon, Mandarin, Coriander Leaves
Base notes

Watches may be a more pricey gift, but they are special and timeless. I wish my boyfriend wore watched so I could buy him one! Keep your special someone stylish and on time.

Both me and my boyfriend love moleskine diaries. He uses his for his physics and maths work, however I'm lusting after a plain one for drawing in. You can get diaries, address books, journals, notepads, sketch pads and travel books. Something for everyone! So chic.

I know very few modern men whole don't enjoy a good video game. Be it Computer, Xbox 360. PS3 or handheld consoles. Mass Effect 3 is the latest release and is available on Xbox and Playstation. Sci-fi epic involving aliens and fighting for your survival. Gripping.

These headphones are the latest and very coolest of brands. Widely dubbed as the best headphones for sound quality around their price range they certainly won't let down your valentine. Sleek style too!

I popped this in as a joke present idea, it really made me laugh! Simple recipes for when your man's lads night leaves him feeling.... a bit under the weather!

I suggest teaming any bought present with something a tad more personal and homemade as a lot of people moan about Valentines Day being so commercialised. A heartfelt letter or well written card should go down a treat. Or perhaps a collage of photographs of the two of you, teamed with ticket stubs from days out for the less cheesy of boyfriends.

Thats it folks! leave YOUR suggestions for great gifts below and stay tuned for #2 where I'll be giving advice for any male readers(?!) as to what to get their other halves.
