Trainers are the sort of thing that we always want to buy ourselves, but we can never justify it when our old pairs are still ticking on...Treat your loved one to a nice shiny new pair this V Day and bin off those stinky Vans Old Skool - it's not 2012 anymore.

A bit of a splurge, but a great one for the walking and hiking obsessive. If your man is the outdoorsy sort, then this is a thoughtful pick for all his treks, bike rides and even kayaking trips (whatever floats your boat ud83dude09). It's waterproof, has a handy laptop pocket AND it's made from 100 per cent recycled bottles. C'est parfait.

Not quite as cheesy as a teddy bear, but just as warm and fuzzy. If you're looking for an easy, token sorta gift - this is whatcha need. Everyone loves to be loved, just maybe not in bright lights for the whole world to see. This seemingly plain mug is the perfect compromise.

If your beau loves a bit of technology, this is a fun little present for him this V Day. You can fill the frame with your fave cheesy snap of the pair of you under a romantic sunset AND you can tidy away those pesky iPhone chargers. A win, win, if you ask us.

There's nothing better than giving your beau a hug and being greeted by the fresh scent of their cologne. It can be tricky to know where to start when picking a scent, but Allure Homme Sport is a classic and it's the gift that keeps on giving - for you and your SO.

Strawberries are somewhat of a Valentine's Day tradition, so why not put a modern twist on an old classic with this funky strawberry vodka from Black Cow. It's de-lish, if we do say so ourselves.

Another boozy option here for the man in your life that loves variety. If your guy is a whisky fan, then the 12 exceptional quality drams they can try in this fun gift box will make a perfect gift. You can even share the tasting experience with him, because if he really loved you he'd share, right?

Another one for the outdoorsy gent, this half-zip fleece combines a lightweight feel with cosy winter-y warmth and, tbh, it just looks good. Half-zips are everywhere at the moment and the khaki fabric will pair with pretty much any trouser, jean or, if he really doesn't feel the cold, short.

He might have a Nespresso machine, he might have a Cafetiere, but if he really loves his coffee, you're going to want to get him an AeroPress. An AeroPress allows for the same delicious flavour as a filter coffee but, and here's the good part, it'll do it in half the time. Plus, with this package of goodies from Paddy and Scotts, it'll be yonks before he needs new coffee.

It might not seem romantic, but presenting your SO from his weekly temper tantrum when he loses his wallet for the 1000th time really is an act of love. With this starter set from Tile he'll get a Tile Slim for his wallet, two Black Mates for his keys and a Sticker for whatever else he's prone to 'misplacing'. Do it for him...but more importantly do it for you ud83dude02.

Nothing quite says I Love You like chocolates, and what could be more apt than a giant 850g whopper of a chocolate bar with I Love You plastered across the wrapper? We rest our case.

For the gent who loves a night in, this is a top tier selection. A glass of vino, primo cheese and ALL the accoutrements, plus a big ole box o' fudge to finish him off (in the best way). C&B really do make the most delicious nibbles, and for less than £60 you're getting quite the haul, too.

If he's a whisky fanatic, why not treat him to a glass or two of The Gladstone Axe's blended malt Scotch whiskies? This great set comes with two glasses so all you need to do is get some ice in the freezer and slice up some citrus wedges.
