TOMORROW is Valentine’s — a day when loved ones exchange cards and gifts, making it the second largest card and gift-sending holiday after Christmas. Choosing the right Valentine’s gift for him may not be as easy as buying him one for his birthday.

An ideal gift for him should largely depend on his personality. Besides, unlike women, most men tend to appreciate functional gifts — the ones that they can put to use, rather than pretty gifts like flowers or chocolate.

Below are the top Valentine’s gift ideas for your boyfriend, fiance or husband.

Watch
Though most men are not comfortable wearing jewellery, a stylish watch would attract his attention. The watch will always remind him to spend time with you. With sh50,000 you can get him a stylish wrist watch from jewellery shops in town.

Wallet
You have probably watched your man carry the same wallet for the last two years and it is beginning to wear out. Consider replacing it. Personalise it by having his initials on it. Do not forget to slip in your picture.

With just sh30,000, you can get him a leather wallet from shops and supermarkets in town. Alternatively, if he is the kind who appreciates African art pieces, get him one in animal skin at the art and craft shops behind the National Theatre.

Necktie
If he is an office man, surprise him with at least two neckties to wear to office. You can make the gift complete by accompanying it with a pair of cufflinks in either sterling silver or gold.

With sh5,000, you can buy a necktie from downtown shops, while in the uptown shops prices range from sh10,000. Cufflinks cost sh5,000 and above.

Polo shirt
Most men are lazy when it comes to buying clothes. A polo shirt is trendy and perfect for casual wear. It can also be personalised by putting his initials on it. You will feel good each time you see him wear it.

Coffee mug
Whether your man drinks coffee or tea to start his day, he will love and use this mug. It will also make him remember you each morning. Coffee mugs are available in supermarkets and gift shops in town. Prices range from sh5000.

Coffee-maker
To help him have his coffee in just seconds, buy him a coffee-maker. With just sh40,000, you can get one from shops dealing in kitchenware and supermarkets.

Wine
Surprise him with a bottle of wine to spice up the evening. However, to make it more romantic, accompany it with wine glasses for the two of you. Wines range from sh15,000, depending on the brand.

Choosing a special gift for your man may take time and thought, but it is worth it. It shows he means a lot to you. It will also help take your relationship to the next level.
