Valentine's Day Gift Ideas for HIM

The supposedly most romantic day of the year is just around the corner, but are you still looking for the perfect present? Gifting can get overwhelming, but do not worry – we’ve put together a handy guide so you are bound to find something that your #1 man will love!

1. The Art of Growing a Beard by Marvin Grosswirth

Originally written in the 70’s, this book has made a comeback thanks to beards being in fashion. It is a hilarious introduction, written with a witty and warm attitude, perfect for any man who would like to go from beardless to bearded.

2. One of his favourite albums on vinyl

Owning a record is just so much more satisfying than simply having the digital files, and vinyl sounds so much better than they ever could. Plus, you can’t go wrong if you know that he already loves it, right?

3. Skin care set

There are surely things he could devote more time to, and skin care is probably one of those. A gift set not only looks great, but also contains everyday essentials. We recommend a selection from Geo F. Trumper, available here


4. Fashion accessories

Whether you man is already elegant or you’re perhaps hinting at a change of style, a sophisticated accessory like a watch or a set of cufflinks is bound to last and also remind him of you every time he wears it.

5. Whiskey

As Raymond Chandler once said “There is no bad whiskey”. We are lucky enough to have The Whiskey Exchange only a few minutes’ walk from our Strand branch, but you can also visit their website for great selection and advice.

6. “Mandles”

Candles for men. All right, so candles might have a reputation for being a present for colleagues when you don’t know what to get them, but they are currently a trend on the rise. Companies are now offering masculine fragrances such as dark rum or chrome, or our personal favourite – the Barbershop scent – with cool, modern designs that will enrich any home.

7. Gift Voucher

A great gift doesn’t have to be tangible, it can be an experience – and here at The Legends Barbershop we know how to treat a man, so why not spoil him with one of our service vouchers, get ONE here.
