To make life easy we have curated our 5 top picks for your loved one. Anyone of these gifts will be sure to keep you in their good books. All you need to do is identify which type of guy your man is and get ordering his gift today.
1 -The man who has it all
Who can resist a candle…or as we like to call candles for gents ‘MANDLES’. Keep his man-cave smelling of the Mediterranean rather than the local farm and order an Agua De Colonia candle, a fine blend of essential oils poured into a glass, etched jar. Banish the winter blues and bring the scent of summer into his home with a distinctive combination of lemon and eucalyptus.
Agua De Colonia is a well-established perfume house in Madrid, over many years the recognisable Agua De Colonia scent has been perfected and is now loved by refined gents all over the world. You can shop for the candle here

We have found the perfect travelling companion for your man.

5- Whiskey Enthusiast
Add some Japanese spirit to Valentine’s Day this year with the luxury yet affordable Hibiki Suntory Whiskey. This wasn’t a difficult product to test! However, we took this one seriously to ensure you don’t have to be put through the difficult task of Whiskey sampling. Hibiki Suntory Japanese Whiskey has notes of Orange and honey with a light oak finish. With Japanese whiskies now leading the way, you will be onto a winner with this one. You can shop this whiskey at the Whiskey Exchange the link is here
