Feeling the pressure to find the right Valentine’s Day gift? Take a deep breath: we’ve tried and tested the best gifts that he’ll really love.

Customised pillowcase set
Aren’t these hilarious? Outfit your bedroom with his ‘n’ hers pillowcases! Get creative and think up the perfect pillow for you both – is he a Star Wars geek? Then it has to be Hans Solo and Princess Leia. Does he love food, or lazy mornings in bed? How about Bacon and Eggs, or Donuts and Coffee?

L’Ascari Man Candles
Yep – man candles are a thing, and after scoffing at the idea it turns out to be a pretty clever idea. Women love candles, right? But we love the sweet, fruity candles that smell like freshly-baked pie and tropical islands. Guess what? Men don’t really dig those fragrances, so that’s why L’ascari Man Candles, which come in sexy scents like Espresso, Open Field and our favourite, Vagabond – richly spiced, perfect for his office or man cave.
