A wallet always makes for a nice choice of gift for a guy - and we particularly like this svelte, tan-leather option from Wild Origin.

Better still, you can get his initials - or indeed anything - embossed on the front.

Here's a very sweet and sentimental choice of Valentine's gift for your boyfriend.

Take the song that means the most to the two of you and get it made into a mini vinyl record keyring - it will be a constant reminder of some lovely shared moments that he can carry in his pocket.

4. Personalised ‘I Pick You’ Plectrum


If your boyfriend's a keen guitarist, or considering starting to learn, then a personalised plectrum is the perfect way of showing your support.

You can get any message of choice engraved on it - though we'd avoid the cheesy pun used as an example above.

5. Personalised Marvel Infinity Saga Collection Storybook


Is your boyfriend a keen Marvel aficionado?

Then this storybook of the Avengers' Infinity Saga is the perfect Valentine's gift - especially as you can get the front cover dedicated to him.

Creative Valentine’s gifts for boyfriend

If you want to dodge the sappy cliches this year, why not treat your man to something more left-field in 2022?

We’ve picked out a number of quirky and unusual gift ideas that offer a great surprise option for your boyfriend.

1. Hairy Bikers Double Deep Fill Pie Maker


We'd argue that among the more unusual choices of Valentine's gift for your boyfriend, is a pie-maker.

But if you're both fond of them, then this double option from the Hairy Bikers is a superb option.

2. Own An Acre Of The Moon


This is an incredibly daft gift, but a great one if your boyfriend is the type who likes to stare up at the sky.

With this gift, he can call a whole acre of the moon of his own - hey, maybe it's something your great-grandkids will get to visit?

3. Grow Your Own Bonsai Tree


This is a nice option if your boyfriend is more of the horticultural type.

Inside this pack is everything he'll need to grow, design and maintain his very own bonsai tree.

4. Gereton Beer Can Jacket


We couldn't resist this cute little beer can jackets, and if your boyfriend has a habit of drinking straight from the can, so will he.

These little jackets from Gereton come in a range of colours and designs, and will keep his lagers colder for longer.

5. Audible Membership


Maybe your boyfriend loves books, but like so many people struggles to find time to read.

If so, an Audible subscription is a great solution, and a great choice of Valentine's gift - and it also comes with a 30-day free trial period.

Tech Valentine’s gifts for boyfriend

If your boyfriend is into gadgets, devices and other electronics, you’ll find a number of great choices out there - and many of them are hugely affordable but high-quality with it.

Take our look at our suggestions below.

1. Honor Band 6 Smart Watch


If your boyfriend is a fitness fan - or at the beginning of a post-Christmas health kick - then a fitness tracker is a great choice of Valentine's gift.

You can get some hugely capable options for less than £50, such as this one from Honor. It will relay stats like heartrate, and be synced to a phone where you can track your progress.

2. Apple AirTag


These little gadgets from Apple are an excellent choice of Valentine's gift for a boyfriend who's, well, a tad forgetful.

Slip an AirTag into valuable items like a wallet or backpack, and they can be easily tracked down should they go AWOL.

3. Nintendo Switch OLED


Is your boyfriend a gaming fan? Then the second-generation version of the Nintendo Switch will be the perfect present.

Unlike consoles such as the PS5 and Xbox One, there aren't any online stock issues - and at £309, it's considerably cheaper.

4. Akaso EK7000 Pro 4K Action Camera


If your guy is sporty, outdoory or adventurous, he'll love an action camera for Valentine's Day.

Will big-name choices like the GoPro line can cost in the hundreds, this option from Akaso is far more affordable, but still of decent quality - it will deliver 4K video footage and is waterproof too.

5. Pixlplay Smartphone Chest Mount


A similar, but much cheaper option is this chest mount, which can effectively turn a smartphone into an action camera.

We're calling this a particularly good choice of Valentine's gift for cyclists.

What is a good Valentine’s present for my boyfriend?

This can be a tough one.

While there are lots of obvious options on the market for wives and girlfriends - flowers, beauty, lingerie - it’s a lot harder to know where to start with men.

But here are some pointers to keep in mind.

Think about what your boyfriend likes, whether that’s related to his hobbies, passions or sports team.

Failing that, think about what he needs, but is unlikely to treat himself to - something like a nice fragrance or some skincare, perhaps.

What should I gift my boyfriend on Valentine’s Day?

There are no rules on what to treat your boyfriend to on February 14 - but if it’s something that has him and his personality in mind, all the better.

If you’re on a budget, don’t worry: a gift that’s only expensive for its own sake won’t mean nearly as much as one that’s cheaper but has had lots of thought put into it.

Even a simple but lovely meal cooked for the two of you will show him that you care.

Our advice? Consult the list above.

What do you get your boyfriend for the first Valentine’s Day?

The pressure’s always on when it comes to gifts on your very first Valentine’s Day together - that's why we’ve dedicated an entire section to it above.

Maybe you’ve been together for almost a year; maybe it’s just been a few passionate weeks, but if you’re hoping this relationship lasts the course, it’s always a wise idea to make a good impression on February 14.

Something fun you could do together, like a co*cktail-making class or a night at the theatre.

How can I surprise my boyfriend on Valentine’s Day?

One way is to surprise him a date night of your choice - something glamorous like an upscale restaurant or co*cktail bar. You could even book a hotel for the night.

You can ask him to dress smartly - but don't tell him why.

If you have an outfit you know he likes, or a way of styling your hair he finds attractive, you can surprise him with them too.

You can even surprise him a pair of surprise airline tickets for a weekend break overseas.
