Gift Ideas For Him: What to get him for Valentine’s Day 2023
1. Socks and Underwear
Yes, socks and underwear are always at the top of the list of gift ideas for him, but it’s for a good reason. These are something he’ll always need, and always want. You can never go wrong with an update on the essentials: socks and underwear. For the man who is always on the go, wrap up the Hugo Boss 2-Pack Brief paired with the Hugo Boss 2-Pack Ribbed Sports Socks. Designed for movement and comfort, these matching essentials are the perfect gift for the active man.
However, if he prefers trucks to briefs, you can’t look past Polo Ralph Lauren’s 3-Pack Classic Truck. For a complete set, pair it with a ribbed-cuff Crew Sock in either white or navy. Watch his eyes light up when he sees Ralph Lauren’s signature embroidered Pony on these socks.
2. Stylish Pyjamas
We spend one-third of our lives in bed, so why not make it extra luxurious for him with some deluxe pyjamas? For a classic yet modern set of pyjamas, he’ll love the matching Short-Sleeve Crew T-Shirt and Lounge Jogger from Calvin Klein. Complete the collection with a Structure Lounge Long Sleeve Sweatshirt for an effortlessly stylish look that can easily transition to loungewear or even travel wear. Likewise, for a breezy summer option, he’ll be in seventh heaven with Contare’s Featherweight Short Sleeve Set crafted in 100% cotton.
3. Cuff Links
A handsome addition to the modern man’s wardrobe, cufflinks are a wonderfully stylish option for Valentine’s Day. Gift him a set of cufflinks that work with the most suiting options and colours, like the Round Black Stone Cufflinks from Geoffrey Beene. Don’t forget to include the matching Silver Clasp Tie Bar for a complete look from head to toe.
Wallets have quickly become a go-to for gifting options, and for a good reason: it’s something many men use daily but rarely replace. This Valentine’s day, hit refresh on his wallet game with a new design that will last him for years to come. Wave goodbye to noisy coins and bulky wallets; sleek and sturdy, the Billfold Card Wallet from Valentino Garavani will be his new favourite.
For the fashionable man that has everything, a belt will always be a treasured gift. Therefore, finding a timeless, stylish, durable belt is an art form in itself. Luckily, this B-Chain Striped Belt from Bally ticks all the boxes. Crafted in Italy from 100% leather and fabric, this red, black, and bone white belt will soon find a prime spot in his daily wardrobe rotation.
6. A Watch
For a Valentine’s Day gift he’ll never forget, and never want to take off, you cannot go past a designer watch. The Tissot PRX Powermatic 80 watch offers an on-trend retro aesthetic inspired by the late 70s. Its integrated case and bracelet, paired with its slim and solid design, makes the PRX an ideal match for those with a passion for Swiss quality and effortlessly cool watches.
It’s the perfect excuse to head poolside or beachside: a brand-new pair of board shorts. Gone are the days of plain beachwear; the modern man is all about character, colour, and a little fun. Therefore, for a cheeky sunkissed look, give him a pair of Skwosh swimwear, like the Mr Pinchy Swimshorts or the Frisky Hibisky Charcoal Swimshorts, for a floral treat.

8. Pocket Square and Tie
The exclamation point on any complete look, a pocket square and tie will always be the perfect Valentine’s gift for the fashion-conscious man. Look to Scandinavian fashion powerhouse Tiger of Sweden for a subtle yet polished set. Their Pinta Silk Hanky and Tint Logo Silk Tie will elevate his suit for every occasion, whether it be a social engagement, a high-stakes business meeting, or a romantic dinner for two.
What better Valentine’s gift idea for him for than hydrated, happy skin? The Age Defender Moisturizer is Kiehl’s first all-in-one anti-aging moisturiser. Specifically formulated for men’s thicker, coarser skin, this brilliant concoction gently exfoliates and hydrates, leaving his skin plump, happy, and fresh. For a skincare gift with a Lunar New Year twist, Kiehls has also released a limited-edition Ultra Facial Cream for him, featuring Lunar New Year Artwork. A lighter formula bursting with Squalane and Glacial Glycoprotein, this product is ideal for daily application.
10. A Perfume or Cologne
Giving the perfect fragrance for someone can be incredibly tricky, but when done right, you’ll be wrapping up their new, signature scent. Tom Ford is your go-to brand for a timeless, rich scent that he’ll love spritzing on for every occasion. Opt for Tom Ford’s most popular scent, the Oud Wood Eau De Parfum. Featuring notes of Exotic Rose Wood and Cardamom, it’s one of those gift ideas for him that will complement every moment.
11. Shaving Kits
Luxury is a good shaving kit. For a decadent gift that will add a touch of old-world glamour to his shaving routine, look no further than the Royal Selangor Woodland Shaving Set In Wooden Gift Box. Designed to be seen, he’ll love the genuine badger bristle, a razor handle that fits standard Gillette cartridges, and the pewter and tempinis finish. Likewise, you can never go wrong with the 100% water-proof electric shaver worth all the buzz: the Series 7 Wet & Dry Shaver from the shaving experts Braun.
