When is Valentine's Day 2023?

Valentine's Day always falls on February 14, this year the special days falls on a Tuesday.

First Valentine gift for boyfriend – what should I buy?

Your first Valentine's Day is a special one, so there's plenty you could do for your first one.

We'd recommend doing something sentimental, perhaps something to remind him of the day you got together, or an activity that you can both do together.

It all depends on how much you know your man, if you know he is a real foodie then a trip to a restaurant he has always wanted to visit is a great idea too.

Alternatively, you could order in his favourite takeaway to have a romantic evening in.

The possibilities are endless, just make sure it's something special to him or something you know he'll like.

What should I get my boyfriend for Valentine’s Day?

Looking for the perfect gift? Think of his hobbies and interest and start there for inspiration.

Something to keep him busy in his free time, or to help him develop a new skill is perfect as a Valentine's gift.

Or you can go for something really romantic and unexpected?Perhaps a surprise date at his favourite place, or an exciting experience he will never forget.

As long as it is something he'll love, (big or small), the options are endless.

What do men want for Valentine’s Day?

It'll all depend on what he's into!

Valentine's Day is the perfect time of year to show your partner how much you care.

You can go for something useful, or if he likes reading, you can't go wrong a book by his favourite author.

If he's into cycling, a new sports jacket or top wouldn't go amiss.

Or maybe gaming is more his thing – does he have the latest video game that has just been released?

You get the idea.

Alternatively, a relatively inexpensive way to a man's heart is through his stomach, so making a really nice meal for two is sure to go down a treat.

What can I get him for Valentine’s Day on a budget?

You can't go wrong with a selection of beers, a book on his favourite subject or even vinyl if he's into his music?

You can also make something homemade, which is a great way to show you care without having to spend lots on an expensive present.

Picture scrap books, baked sweet treats or even a fry up in bed are all good options if you're low on funds (and ideas)!

What are the most popular Valentine’s Day gifts for men?

The perfect present will always be matched to their interests.

So if he's into sports, a football shirt could be a great gift, or a music fan would love their favourite music.

Why not book something to do together? The ultimate date night, a spa day or even a mini break?

What can I do for him on Valentine’s Day?

Nothing beats a home cooked meal, and a bottle of wine and some Netflix and chill.

If you want to make cooking a shared experience, you could order a meal box delivery and work your magic in the kitchen together.

Or if you both love booze go out for cocktails at your favourite bar or order a cocktail kit to make at home.

If your man loves to be pampered a spa break with a massage or facial will tick the box.

Whatever you choose, as long as your man feels special, he will enjoy being made a fuss of.
