Gifts for the man I love this Valentine's Day - Debenhams Valentine's Day blogger competition.

Whilst we do not celebrate Valentine’s Day with gifts, trinkets of love or by going out for a special night out – mainly due to money and lack of a babysitter – I do love to treat the love of my life when I can.

So when I recently saw a Valentine’s Day blogger competition by Debenhams where entrants had to create a moodboard of gifts you would love to give the man in your life from Debenhams this Valentine’s Day it gave me the perfect excuse to dream about what I would love to get my man if money was no object.

Red Herring Black Hooded Quilted Jacket
I would love to treat my man to a stylishly classic jacket. I am sure he would look super sexy in the faux leather jacket and the quilted lining would help keep him warm and cosy – perfect for cwtches with me – when we are out and about having fun family days out together.

Red Herring White Faded Floral Print T-shirt
As it is Valentine’s Day I would love to bring a touch of romance to the outfit thanks to this stylish t-shirt with white and grey floral print. Not only would there be a hint of romance thanks to the print but he would also look lovely and be happy with the relaxed and comfortable style he loves.

Being a fan of superhero I would get my big kid a Superman Onesie so he could feel like a superhero! Not only would it quench his love of all-things superhero related but it would also be the perfect outfit for when we get to snuggle together on the sofa of a night and watch a film once Bug is sleeping soundly in bed. I know I would love to be snuggling into Superman of a night!

Joe Browns Mid Blue Easy Going Joe Jeans
To complete his relaxed yet stylish outfit I would love to treat my man to a new pair of jeans, and these lovely Joe Browns with relaxed fit would be perfect.

Adidas Black ‘Barracks Star’ trainers
As Lee loves Adidas trainers and has not treated himself to a new pair of trainers for many, many years (always putting Bug and I before him) I would love to get him a new pair of snazzy ‘Barracks Star’ Adidas trainers. Thanks to being fully padded for comfort and support his feet will be pampered and I know he would love the addition of the bright blue dash of colour to the classic black and white design.

Being a huge fan of Minecraft I know Lee would love this cute Creeper Plush with explosion sound. The soft plush creeper would also be the perfect cuddling partner for my man when I am not around!

Harper Collins Minecraft Blockopedia
Again as he is a fan of Minecraft and loves to read the odd book or two I know he would love this Blockopedia book. A fun, quirky yet useful book for my man this Valentine’s Day.

DeLonghi Nespresso ‘Latissima+’ EN520.S Silver Coffee Machine
As my man love coffee nearly as much as he loves me……I hope I come before coffee that is! I would love to get him a flash coffee machine so he can have his caffeine hit and make his coffees exactly the way he likes them. Perhaps if he had this coffee machine as I am useless with gadgets he would insist on making his coffees himself just in case I break his beloved new coffee machine which would save me from having to make his coffee of a morning…! win! 

Pure ‘Jongo’black wireless speaker
Being a huge music lover who loves nothing more than blasting out tunes I know Lee would adore it if I was to gift him a speaker. It would also come in handy to croon out some romantic songs for us to listen to as we have a snuggle on the sofa this Valentine’s Day.

Coasteering gift experience
As Lee has always wanted to try Coasteering I know he would be over the moon with a coasteering gift experience so that he could be a kid once more and enjoy the thrills of jumping off cliffs, climbing rock faces and swimming in caves. He would love to do this and pretend he was a true action hero as he goes on a fun action adventure.

Mondo Motors Aston Martin DBS remote control car
I would also love to treat my big kid to a fun remote control car so that he can relieve memories from his childhood of racing remote control cars. He would also love the fact that he owns an Aston Martin DBS…..even if it is only a small remote control car version of it!


Now all I need to do is find that money tree at the bottom of the garden so that I can treat my man to lots of gifts this Valentine’s Day.

    1. I think my other half would be over the moon if I was to get him I said he loves coffee nearly as much (or possibly more than me)!
