You’re his Valentine – but what to get him? Upgrade his kit with menswear editor Ian Wright’s favourite buys that are guaranteed to leave him love-struck this Valentine’s Day. And not a pair of socks in sight...
Like a warm hug when you can't be there, this jumper's extra-fine lambswool combines comfort, softness and practicality. Machine washable and available in a variety of bold shades, it will still look great even if he’s fiddled with the washing machine settings.
If love is in the air, it definitely smells like this. Bursting with refreshing blood orange and underpinned by musk, wood and leather base notes, he’ll want to wear this premium Shay & Blue fragrance now and all through summer, leaving you with the sweet smell of success.
Rain the love down on him with a beautifully made brolly. The combination of smart gunmetal, smooth wood and black canopy make this the perfect umbrella for a man about town.
Does his wine chat include terms like “acidity” and “minerality”? Then this Sommelier decanter is for him. But even if he just enjoys a good glass of red without a side of waffle, it's great for holding a fine Burgundy to go with a hearty Valentine’s meal.
If he’s always running late for date nights or work, improve his timekeeping with this stylish watch. The military-inspired black metal face, dials and strap make it equally at home in a business debrief as out in the field.
Forget the T-shirt-and-shorts combo that doubles as his painting gear – this is next-level loungewear by David Gandy for Autograph. This set is made from a super-soft blend of Supima cotton, MicroModal and Lycra.
Introducing the only cufflinks he’ll ever need. The elegantly simple design makes pairing them with shirts and suits a doddle, while the rose-gold finish is a refreshing departure from the familiar yellow and silver metals.
If you’re always being whisked off on romantic trips, or if he’s often away with work, this Crabtree & Evelyn travel set is a great addition to his washbag. The West Indian lime, vetiver and ginger scent will keep him smelling sharp.
Whether he’s a gym-goer or globe-trotter, every man needs a good washbag. This timeless luxury leather design will age well, and there’s plenty of room for all his lotions and potions, so you won’t find his stuff all over the bathroom. Bonus.
A silky smooth blend with exceptional balance and complexity, Spice Tree Whisky is a must for any discerning gent. Created by master whisky blender John Glaser at Compass Box, the intensely flavoured malt has a delicious toasted oak character. Here’s to him sharing some with you!
