Amazing Gifts For Guys On Valentine’s Day

A refreshingly simple guide on what to buy for every type of man in your life.

We’re not sure what it is exactly that makes buying gifts for the men in our lives so tricky at times. Especially on Valentine’s Day. So we’ve spoken to the experts at Bundle + Twine who have helped us put together a simple guide on what to buy for every type of man. Whether he’s a creative, a mama’s boy or The One – we think we’ve hit the nail on the head with these picks.

If you like these suggestions you can simply add them all into a “design your own” gift box online at Bundle + Twine or mix and match as many items as much as you like, to create the perfect gift. Once you’ve designed your gift box, you can have it sent to your lover complete with a personalised hand written message (cuuute)!

Otherwise, if you’re short on time/brain power after the Christmas craziness – let Bundle + Twine do the work for you and select from one of their gorgeous range of pre-designed gift boxes. There’s all different styles, sizes and budgets.

The Tradie

You know the type…easygoing, fit, skilled and your personal handyman. Although the addage “the tradies get the ladies” is no longer applicable now that you’re on the scene, you want to let him know that you appreciate him and his special qualities.

Gentleman’s Hardware Hand Salve – To keep his hands soft and supple after a hard day on the tools – ok so this one might be a little more for you because who wants a massage with callus ridden hands?!Anchor Steam Beer – Aye aye captain! This is sure to put a smile on his dial and quench that hard earned thirst.

San Francisco’s Anchor Steam Beer, owes its deep amber colour, thick creamy head, and rich distinctive flavour to its historic brewing process, that combines deep respect for craft brewing tradition with many decades of evolution.The Smooth Talker

Simply pour into a frozen cocktail glass and garnish with a lemon twist or olive.

The Mama’s Boy

This is a guy you can take home to mum…or nana. He loves a cuppa and a cuddle and sometimes he’ll even share (fingers crossed) one of his biscuits.

Bizzarri Dolci Handmade Monte Carlos – He’s so sweet he probably doesn’t really need these, but any excuse for a handmade biccie, right?!

Bizarri Dolci ‘Monte Carlos’ are delicate, buttery, handmade, coconut biscuits filled with a raspberry swirled cream. A biscuit with a melt in the mouth flavour that is sure to become a firm family favourite.

A uniquely warm spirit, suitable for any convivial occasion. It is the first legal aged grain spirit to be produced by New York’s Hudson Valley since Prohibition.

The best Euphonium yet.”
