Perhaps your husband has been working harder than ever and deserves a treat. Perhaps he’s been neglecting himself and needs a pick-me-up. Perhaps he’s been adorable lately and you want to reward him for it. Whatever the reason, Valentine’s Day is a great excuse to pull out the stops and gift your husband something especially memorable. If you haven't yet planned read how to PLAN FOR THE PERFECT VALENTINE'S DAY! To help you pick the right present, LIVEINSTYLE.COM offers up a list of recommendations…
MAKE HIM FEEL ‘SPA’CIAL!
If your husband’s idea of pampering himself is a night at home watching footie with a beer in hand, you’ve got to show him what he’s missing! Treat him to an indulgent day at the spa, with a deep tissue massage, steam and sauna experience all rolled into one perfect pampering package. Throw in a mani-pedi as well and, if it’s available, sign him up for a relaxing paraffin wax pedicure. Just ensure you take care of all the expenses well in advance and no one shows him the bill — because knowing the costs involved may rob him of his massage high!
UP HIS GAME

If your man is sporty by nature, consider giving his game a boost with a new pair of studs or sneakers. Likewise, a new set of golf clubs, a new tennis racket, a cool designer gym bag... you get our drift, right? He’s likely to appreciate that you are encouraging his ‘playful’ passion and you have the advantage of knowing he’s using your gift to do something healthy. That’s what you call a win-win situation!
YOU CAN LET THIS ONE SLIDE
It’s a common conundrum amongst couples: he wants to be comfortable and you want nothing to do with his unattractive flip-flops. Kill two birds with one stone (so to speak), and buy him a chic pair of slides. If you want to take the branded route, we’d recommend Gucci’s signature rubber slide sandals, but you could also head to Aldo or Clarks to buy a spunky pair of high-street sandals that tick both boxes — comfort and style — with equal panache.
THIS ONE’S IN THE BAG!
From Prada’s ‘Nylon Double-Zip Briefcase’ to Burberry’s ‘Hendley Check Messenger Bag’ in a rich chocolate tone, the luxury stores are full of potential upgrades for your main man’s man-bag. There’s TUMI, Shinola, Gucci, Fendi and our favourite Tom Ford to choose from, if you want to invest in an eye-catching designer bag. Yet, if you opt to save a pretty penny because your husband isn’t big on branded gear, there are a fair few quality labels to look at too: Hidesign and Fossil are a good place to start.
Boys love their toys and V-Day is just as appropriate an occasion as any other to indulge your man with the gift of a gizmo. There’s no shortage of gadgets to choose from, with smartphones, high-end cameras, hi-fi speakers, noise-canceling headphones and game consoles topping our list of recommendations. Of course, what you should buy depends entirely on what your husband needs most — and if you listen carefully, you’ll pick up the occasional hint to help you along.
