How to choose the best Valentine's gifts for him

Our Consumer Editor, Heidi Scrimgeour, shares her top tips for choosing the best Valentine's Day gifts for him:

"The secret to choosing the best Valentine's gift for a boyfriend or husband is easy - select something that makes him feel thought of and appreciated - but also a little flirted with. If in doubt, go for a silly gift that will raise a smile - laughter is an aphrodisiac, after all. Failing that, focus on his passions overall. A foodie fella will definitely appreciate a cooking kit or a Valentine's hamper full of tasty treats. And if you're really stuck when it comes to the best Valentine's gift for him, think about the things he enjoys doing. Create memories with an experience day or pick a personalised gift that will mean so much more to him than something off the shelf."

  1. Ask him what he'd like
    Asking someone what they'd like for a gift seems unromantic but far better to ask and get something they'll truly appreciate than go for a gesture that falls a bit flat. 
  2. Get personal
    Personalised items are top sellers for Valentine's Day gifts so give a little bit of thought to what he loves, and then add a personal twist. 
  3. Make it memorable
    As parents, it's tricky to take time out to celebrate being a couple but Valentine's Day is the perfect excuse to make a bit of a fuss of each other. Memories matter!
  4. Consider his love language
    If you've read The 5 Love Languages (£8.39, Amazon) you'll know that love languages - quality time, affirmation, gifts, acts of service, and physical touch - influence how we react to certain gifts. Essential reading if you want to get it right!
