What to gift your man for Valentine's? A question which is not straightforward, as flowers, diamonds or chocolate certainly seem not to be suitable for men on this romantic day. How romantic after all should a Valentine's gift for a man be? We have the best suggestions for you here:
1. Bright Blue Umbrella, Francesco Maglia, Italy
Francesco Maglia is the Ferrari of Umbrellas. The iconic umbrella brand Maglia is over 170 years old and still a true Italian family business. Many men are too busy to recognise how important a high-quality umbrella of utmost distinction is.
This is the perfect gift to make your man the perfect gentleman. Just think of "Singing in the rain" and of all the moments he will use this umbrella to keep you close underneath heavy rain... it's worth it!

2. 167 Cufflinks, Asprey, England
Cufflinks may be a very stereotypical men's gift, yet they are one of the very few jewellery items a man can wear and can't have enough of. Gifting silver cufflinks made by the renown English luxury house Asprey, which also supplies the royals, will be a super safe Valentine's gift. Red the colour of love, here as red enamel, will always remind the day and the reason why he got this special gift from you: the promise of your love on Valentine's Day.
If you can make it to London, it's worth to buy the cufflinks yourself at their flagship store on Bond Street.

Due to this sustainably sourced natural material, each dial is as unique as a fingerprint! The watch comes either in a standard steel version or in a 24ct gold version and can be combined with different straps.
