Valentine’s day shopping for the man in your life can be a tad frustrating when you haven’t the slightest clue what to get them. Hold up, because shopping for the dapper gentleman you’ve got your eyes on just became a lot easier. Here’s a list of 3 fashion accessories to get for your man.


Leather bracelets make fantastic wrist gear for men. A brown or black leather bracelet will go well with watches. Alternatively, customise a simple silver bracelet with embossed letterings – his initials, your anniversary or a simple heart. If you’re up for couple accessories, get one for yourself too!

Tie Bar

Keep your man in style while he keeps his tie in place with a tie bar. Tie bars are making a come back and this small accessory can go a long way in helping your man look debonair. A solid silver or gold tie bar goes with almost anything, but if you’re looking for something that really catches attention, try a wooden tie bar.

Pocket Squares

Like the tie bar, the pocket square has been picking up steam recently. Look to compliment your man’s tie and shirt with this simple addition that will add versatility to his outfit. Choose from a variety of solid colours, patterned or tipped pocket squares. If you’re looking for something unique, try making a pocket square! Repurpose unwanted silk skirts or dresses and fashion them into pocket squares. It’s fun, non-costly and shows that you’ve put in quite some effort!
