Valentine’s Gift Ideas For Him

Valentine’s Gift Ideas For Him

We all know buying presents for men can be a headache, to say the least. Most men are fussier than they would admit, and they usually buy themselves things they want rather than wait to receive them on a special holiday.

With that said, it can be easy to resort to the classic male gift ideas and buy novelty socks, a wallet, booze, slippers or a leather belt for the man in your life this Valentine’s Day. But don’t panic! This guide has some unique gift ideas that can help you choose something he will love and, fingers crossed, something he won’t have already bought himself.

Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas for Men

Personalised Jewellery, Cufflinks, Tie Clips and More

You may know Inscripture are the first and leading handwriting engraving specialist and that we offer the largest range of memorial jewellery in the UK. However, did you know that we also create personalised jewellery for other occasions? So if you are looking for the perfect gift for your male partner this Valentine’s Day, we can also offer some personalised tie clips, black leather bracelets, dog tag necklaces, or cufflinks, which can go down a treat.

Alternatively, if you don’t think your loved one would like custom jewellery or rarely has the occasion to wear cufflinks or tie clips, Inscripture also offers other personalised items. These pieces include padlocks, wallet cards, keyrings, and even pocket watches. So you can personalise other useful items and choose something that suits your man’s personality and lifestyle.

Custom Drawing of His Dog or Cat

If your partner has a furry family member, have you ever considered ordering a pet portrait commission? Not only is this a thoughtful gift he is guaranteed to love, but hopefully, this isn’t something he will have thought to buy himself!

Find a local artist or search on social media to find someone who can create a custom piece of art for you to wrap up. Almost any reasonable budget works for this gift idea, as you can find art students willing to take projects for more affordable prices, or you can splash out on a pet portrait specialist.


And if all else fails and you just can’t think of an idea you know your partner will love, you can rarely go wrong when gifting an experience.

Not only does gifting an experience mean your loved one can have something to look forward to, but you will also create more special memories together.

Try to tailor the experience to your recipient’s interests, for example:

Attend a cooking class together: learn a new recipe or cooking technique and have fun cooking together. You could attend an in-person class, such as this Italian cooking class at the Avenue Cookery School in London, or find a virtual event you can join from home.
Surprise them with concert or show tickets: gift a ticket for a night out at a local show that you know they will love. Comedy shows always go down a treat with anyone, or you may prefer to organise a musical or theatre performance or book tickets to a gig when their favourite band is in the area.

Plan a picnic in the park: giving experiences doesn’t have to cost a bomb, and you can arrange a DIY picnic hamper for as little as £5-10 per person.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
