Though your plans might look different this year thanks to the Omicron variant, it would be a big mistake to assume the man in your life doesn’t want to receive a Valentine’s Day gift. An even bigger mistake? Assuming that all gifts work for all men.

 

Certain guys may be yearning for a new Bluetooth speaker, others may fancy nothing more than a sharp chef’s knife, and some may want a candle to help them take the edge off another year of the pandemic. (And of course, there are the guys who actually just want chocolate.) To help find the right Valentine’s Day gift for the man in your life, we’ve conducted another survey this week on our lovely office to see what they would get their esteemed boyfriend or husband.

 

Most of the things on this list are available on Amazon, but we’ve found some of them elsewhere, too, for those who like to shop around. While almost everything (at time of publication) will ship and arrive on or before Valentine’s Day, we’re updating this article often and noting anything that’s running behind because we’re of the mind-set that the right gift is one worth waiting for.

 

  1. Sony PlayStation 5

A gaming console is something every man would want to have; no matter how young or old they are. From sports games to racing or shooting, almost every man would appreciate this gift, and according to the survey, four people from our office think that it’s the most suitable gift to get!

There are many places you could buy a PS5 from, especially for a good deal. So, make sure to do your research before buying one.

Check out all official stores, such as Lulu, Carrefour, Monoprix, Geekdom, Geekay, and more for promotions and offers on the newest consoles.

 

  1. Watch

Luxury watches make for great Valentine’s Day gifts. Whereas flowers will eventually die and chocolates will be eaten in a matter of minutes, a watch will stand the test of time on a loved one’s wrist. All you have to do is ensure you are buying the right kind of watch for your partner.

When searching for the best watch for Valentine’s Day, there are factors to consider. These factors include the watch shape, the size, the material, its complications and whether you opt for a mechanical or quartz-powered watch.

Check out the nearest stores here in Qatar and always buy them from an official retail store. OMEGA, Casio, Swatches, and more are all great watches for “him”!

  1. Laptop

Every man needs a device to work on, and although many of them already do, buying a new one is never a bad idea.

From the new MacBook to the latest ASUS and Lenovo laptops, promotions are always offered in many of Qatar’s stores all over the country, whether it’s in Lulu, Carrefour, Jarir Bookstore, or any other bookstore. Finding the device you need with an offer, promotion, or an instalment plan is always an option here in Qatar.

 

  1. Homemade Romantic Dinner

What’s better than going out and buying your beloved partner dinner? Making it yourself.

Not only is it an activity where you can spend more time with him cooking, but it’s fun and always a healthier option. We’ve provided a recipe this week on our Instagram, so make sure to go and check it out and let us know what you think about it.

 

  1. Holiday Trip

One of the best parts of being in a relationship is having a built-in travel buddy, and one of the best parts of travelling with that built-in buddy is getting unobstructed one-on-one time while exploring different parts of the world. Whether domestic or international, a trip with your significant other almost always guarantees to share exciting experiences and learning something new about each other, like the fact that your boyfriend/husband can make friends with anyone despite only being able to say one phrase in the local language.

Check out Qatar’s latest activities; especially for Sports day, and make sure to opt-in for a getaway to the desert, or even a weekend stay-over at the Banana Island Resort!

 

  1. Shoes

Valentine’s Day is all about upping the blood flow to the heart and releasing a truckload of serotonin, right? It turns out that the rush of love is almost exactly the same feeling as copping a new pair of sneakers. Whether’s it’s specific releases or footwear that still fits the romantic agenda this Valentine’s Day, we’ve got a heady selection lined up for you below.

Something about the pastel pinks, reds, and purples, as well as the possibilities in the form of plush materials, make Valentine’s Day sneakers a treasure trove of unexpected romantic gifts and worthy new additions to your spotless rotation.

From Nike and Adidas to Maison Margiela and Mihara Yasuhiro, all of the big names have got in on Valentine’s Day sneakers action, so take your pick and make love happen.

  1. Cologne

A fragrance is a terrific way to strike the right note on any date night. On Valentine’s Day, in particular, a new scent is effectively a reset for the year ahead. It’s a benchmark of who you are right now, after that aforementioned self-care audit.

From Montblanc Legend to Dior Homme Sport to Tom Ford Oud Wood; you could always find your favourite fragrances here in Doha, the land of elegance and modernity.

 

  1. Tie

Although uncommon, ties ranked pretty high on the list, and we think that it never hurts to get a tie to your beloved partner.

There are swoon-worthy novelty prints, red-hot stripes and cupid-approved solids. Just take your pick and order it online or buy it right from your nearest store!

 

  1. Shirt

Nothing gets to a guy’s heart more than a custom shirt, or even a shirt that’s engraved with a memory of the past. Perhaps it’s time to buy your partner a cute shirt to elevate his style and make him the man of your dreams.

Extra clothes never seem to make your man less creative with his outfits, so go out and get your man some style!
