What to Buy Your Guy This Valentine’s Day
Whether brief, fatal or forever – to fall in love is a wondrous thing.
This Valentine’s Day, treat your man to a gift as magical as both he and the love you share. This day celebrates the truly serendipitous and cosmically incomprehensible thing that is love.
As mysterious as the Saint Valentine of its namesake, the interpretation of this holiday is malleable: whether you want a gift for your most-favourite single friend, your forever man, or your flavour of the month; whether you want something as simple as a handcrafted card signed, ‘your valentine,’ or something as astonishing as a thousand roses and a string quartet.
Representations of love are often grand; the descriptions of this strange combustion of hormones make it seem transcendent; indescribable and surreal. But love is utterly unpretentious, quiet and calm.
You could assume an occurrence as intimate and inward as love would not require imposing festivities. But love is also ubiquitous. This concoction of attributes makes it thoroughly deserving of a day dedicated to opulent celebration.
Inspired by classic anniversary gift themes, here is our pick of Valentine’s gifts influenced by seven different materials: paper, leather, ceramic, oil, wood, cotton, and metal.
