For desperate men who are procrastination-prone, the clock is ticking gentlemen. These men wish there was some button they could press to jump over Valentines day. Bad news for you, that button is nonexistent and Valentine’s month is here.

Women are likely to understand the value of such a day, but men may have to tag along. It’s the only choice anyway. With such a day at threshold, there are gifts that are recommended to purchase for your love.

It is a show of appreciation and acceptance; a display of affection and a statement that indeed you love that person.

Here is a list of few valentine gifts; you could get for that special someone in your life

10. Coffemakers.

Essentially, it’s a rather dear item, but it's worth it. Whenever she uses it in her kitchen, it will be  a constant reminder of the love you have for her. Go along, get a coffeemaker with distinct features and I would recommend a red one in colour.

9. Chocolate

That feeling you get from taking a chocolate can only be equated to that of awakening feeling of love. Treat her with a chocolate, sizeable one, I dare say. It is always a good place to start on Valentines Day. For one it’s sweet…just like your love.

8. Men’s leather watch

Hello ladies: Leather watch plays the trick pretty well for the men. Get a bold, masculine design watch that any man would want to look at to know if it’s time to go home. I recommend that you buy him a leather watch. It will be a big deal, you can bet that.

7. Teddy Bear

If you have a feeling that teddy bear is old school, then here is the news sir:  It isn’t, and women still value it, for whatever reason, I do not comprehend. If ever there was an appropriate time of year to give someone a teddy bear, Valentine’s Day would probably be it.

6. Wallet

Men and wallets. Back in high school, we used to compete on whose wallet was the finest.  Apart from that telling you how much idle we were, it also tells you how much men value wallets.

Get your guy a wallet, so he can have a place to keep money to buy your stuff.  It’s a simple, weird arguement. Wallet is one thing any guy would not mind upgrading, especially when they’re a gift from that special person

5. Necklace and heart earrings

Whenever I see a beautiful pearl necklace on a woman's neck, I always wish, a man bought it for her. I agree, it’s a weird wish. But it kind of tells you that as man, you should buy your woman jewelry: Beautiful Necklace or heart earrings.  Visit a gift shop or stalls along Tom Mboya, because this is actually that one gift you can easily come across.

It will throw her into a crazy happy world.  She will show it off to her friends and brag about it, and you would have earned your ‘bonga points’

4. Cologne

Without a doubt you want your man to smell good, maybe not too good because that could certainly attract unwanted competition, if you get what I mean.  But cologne is that perfect gift that will make him smell. mmh perfect. Get it for him.

3. Neck Tie or  Red Scarves

Red ties are a good idea for him, unless he hates the color red, but you could get some other colour. Be keen on the type of neck ties he likes, be it a cravat, ascot or simple tie get him that. It has to be distinct

Just like ties are a good idea for him on Valentine’s Day, red scarves could do the magic for her.  You can purchase pretty scarves on these boutiques in town: they have variety. There is the liberty of getting other colours, probably her favourite.

 2. Spa set

If you buy your special one this set, I got three words: Crazy in love! Spa set contains,body lotion, bath and body wash, , rich body butter and a bath poof.

So every time they walk to a bathroom, they feel the love; when they use the lotion,  they feel your gentle touch. It more like ”you are all over her life” literally.

1. Flowers

The usual suspect, flowers take the number one spot on our list of Valentine’s Day gifts. Flowers are simple yet powerful gesture that no one can ignore.

You can’t go wrong with a nice bouquet of roses, take it to her office, on the streets and hand it over. Give it to her in class man. I can assure you, you will see the most beautiful smile, you’ve ever dreamt of, let alone see.
