Valentine's Day is just 2 days away and for you ladies who haven't a clue what to get your man, here's my list of great gifts that you can give your boyfriend (your husband or fiancé) without putting you in debt. Conveniently, some of these gifts that I've put together you will be able to order online or on your mobile so it's super quick and easy!

Looking good isn't just a woman's thing anymore. Nowadays, men want to feel and look good as much as women so why not get him a shaving set to help him do just that? You'd be blown away by how sexy he smells in the mornings.

This elegant shaving gift set includes:

Daily Foaming Cleanser: A gentle cleanser formulated with alpine moss and quillaja to help whisk away excess oils and impurities while water chestnut keeps skin from becoming dried out.
Classic Shave Cream: Not every luxurious shave cream requires a brush. At the base of the Babassu & Bergamot Classic Shave Cream is a moisturizing formula packed with natural and essential oils, making it the best non lathering shave cream on the market.
Aftershave Cream: The trifecta of seaweed, cocoa butter and babassu oil help your skin to retain its moisture. Birch, a natural astringent, closes pores, heals nicks and soothes burns. And the scent of bergamot oil relieves any lingering tension.
I got the Aftershave Cream (for Normal Skin) for my BFF during our Christmas exchange and he loved it very much. Obviously I've never required a shave so I can't tell you how well this works but he did mention that he likes the understated packaging and warm, refreshing, flirtatious scent that this product leaves post-shave.
Available exclusively at myLifeInc.

The way a man smells says a lot about his personality, his charisma and how attractive he is. A great cologne couldn't be a more appropriate and timely gift this Valentine's Day. A fragrance is a very personal thing so it's really boils down to how well you know him when you buy one that suits and is unique to him.

Acqua di Parma celebrates the authentic timeless elegance of Italian style with Essenza. The new fragrance created as the purest expression of the Colonia family. The tuxedo of Colonia.
A return to the origin. A perfect alchemy of cosmopolitanism and Italian roots. A true cult item dedicated to all connoisseurs of Colonia, created in 1916 and regarded as a timeless classic.

Colonia Essenza is dressed all in black. A non-colour colour; the symbol of self-confident elegance. Refined. Exclusive. And the famous Art Déco bottle of Colonia discovers a new expression. Opaque black substitutes transparent glass.
Modernity and tradition entwined, with subtle references to the refined look of the tuxedo.

The fragrance opens with the fresh notes of Italian citrus lemon, orange and bergamot, enlivened by the presence of grapefruit, mandarin and petit-grain. At the heart, for the first time, the aromatic notes of rosemary, accompanied by a delicate flowery combination of rose, jasmine, lily of the valley and a soft touch of clove.

A perfect finish unfolds with a vibrant woody note, enriched with pure, strong and intense patchouli. Soft white moss and warm amber notes ensure a rounded and enhanced character.

Available at Metro Paragon, Robinsons Orchard, escentials @ Tangs Orchard,

More and more men are becoming more conscious about how they look and trying to maintain and preserve their youthful appearances. I've been consuming Kinohimitsu's J'Pan Beauty Collagen Diamond 5300 Drink religiously for the past one month and my skin has never felt more radiant and supple since I entered my late 20's.

Therefore, it'd be utterly selfish of me not to share that Kinohimitsu also has a collagen drink specifically designed to satisfy the needs of men's skin. 

Infused with 5300mg Collagen Peptide and excellent moisturising ingredients, Kinohimitsu's J'Pan Beauty Collagen Men helps to plump up skin, smooth out fine lines, regulate sebum secretion, heal facial scars and restore youthful vitality to the skin. Witness his gorgeous  transformation in just 6 days!

Also available at all Watsons and Guardian stores.


This is THE gift to get for guys who already have everything. Just because it's super functional and just out-of-the-box. There are so many things he could do with a Swiss Knife especially if he's an outdoorsy kinda guy. 

And what's really cool is that you can engrave a custom name onto the Swiss Knife to make it even more special for him.

If he's a gamer or a tech guy, then he would be squeaking as excitedly as I did when I received my first Ducky Mechanical Keyboard. I've owned several keyboards and this is my favourite brand by far! I love the different switches (how soft or loud the keys are when you type), multitude of coloured key caps and the selection of backlit LED colours is just amazing! I had mine in red and magenta and there are several lighting modes and effects that you can play with and adjust as well. 

There are a few different specifications for this particular brand of Mechanical Keyboards, but if you manage to find out what he likes and get the keyboard that most suits his gaming needs, then I can almost guarantee that it'll make him jump and squeal in joy. Equip your boy with this gaming essential and make all his gaming experience an even more awesome one.

Hopefully these suggestions have given you some ideas on what's your guy may like to receive this Valentine's Day! Most importantly, a good gift says a lot about how well you understand your significant other so put in some thought when picking a present to make this occasion an even more meaningful one. 

Have a happy Valentine's Day you all! :)
