4. The elegant wine decanter

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.

5. The sporty watch

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.

7. The classy cufflinks

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.
