Valentine’s Day is in about a week’s time, and if all the Chinese New Year preparation has nudged the date out of your mind, fret not, you still have time to buy a gift for bae. Whether he’s into fashion, grooming or a thrilling experience, we’ve got it all sorted out. Scroll through the gallery and start adding to cart.
A work shirt
Timeless and classy, inject a dose of colour into your man’s closet with this Oxford shirt. This utilitarian green number features the barely-there orange emblem signature of Polo Ralph Lauren, and he’ll look super suave when he pairs it with dark denim jeans and Converse kicks for a dinner date.
A thrilling experience
If he’s the sort who values new and exciting experiences over material things, booking him a bungy jump at AJ Hackett on Sentosa might just make his day. Better still, book yourself in for one as well – after all, nothing says ‘bonding’ like participating in a death-defying 47m free-fall together, right?
The resulting adrenaline rush and satisfaction of completing a new and unique experience together is sure to leave you both feeling closer than ever. Cowabunga, dudes!
Book a jump at $159 per person at https://www.ajhackett.com/sentosa/activities/bungy/.
A basic cleanser with a lot of benefits
The perfect antidote for dull and tired skin, this invigorating mask stimulates microcirculation while drawing out impurities for a clear and revitalised complexion. Especially great if your man is a frequent flyer.

A luxe cardholder
If your partner’s wallet looks a tad worse for wear, gift him a leather cardholder that’ll last him through several seasons, like this bold statement piece from Fendi. With its multiple slots for cards and cash, he’d be proud to whip this baby out while paying for meals.
A designer tee
You’d never go wrong with a designer black tee. This piece features a simple and subtle slogan at its chest, which is perfect if your guy is someone who likes to keep things down low.
A fragrance that will make bae love eau
Like its name suggests, this scent is exquisitely concocted with mandarin leaves, neroli flowers, bamboo, green lavender, amber and cedar wood for a complex yet perfectly balanced eau.
Byredo Mister Marvelous Eau de Parfum, $210 for 50ml
Personalised alcohol. Lots of it
For the passionate beer-swiller, there are two options. One: A home-brewing kit so he can try his hand at brewing his own golden nectar, if he has the patience for it, of course. Two: His very own custom craft beer brewed and labelled specially for him courtesy of local brewery Trouble Brewing.
While they typically brew various beers for commercial sale–they supply watering holes like Oxwell & Co. and Lucha Loco–there’s no reason they can’t knock up a couple of one-of-a-kind cases (from taste to packaging) just for your sweetie. Bottoms up!
White sneakers that he can wear with every outfit in his wardrobe
Based off an archival design from the ’80s, the Continental 80 low-top trainers gets a modern interpretation with this version that sports a buttery leather fabric. What we love about this pair is the subtle two-tone stripe on the side, which adds a unique pop of colour to your man’s collection of white sneakers.
A joyride in the car of his dreams
Never mind that your other half can’t quite afford that Ferrari he’s been dreaming about since he was a kid. You can help him get his fill of supercars by gifting him the chance to rev up and drive (or be a passenger in) his dream automobile through the streets of Singapore.
SingExperience offers a plethora of choices–from the Ferrari California to the Lamborghini Gallado and Maclaren 12c spider–for joyrides ranging from 15 to 60 minutes starting from just $319.
Or, if your boo is more into two wheels than four, Harley Davidson rentals are available as well. Talking about vrooming into Valentine’s Day!

A pair of luxe cuff links
Does your partner work in an office job? Cuff links should be an essential accessory to him, just like jewels are to a woman. Add this sophisticated pair to his accessory box that’ll inject a touch of gravitas to his work ensemble.
A ship. Uhh, kinda
Take the reigns this Valentine’s Day and tell him to leave the planning to you, then take him on an uber-romantic dinner cruise aboard luxury tall ship the Royal Albatross. Over two and a half hours, you’ll dine under the 47m ship’s 22 sails and the stars in the night sky while enjoying live entertainment and swoon-worthy views of Singapore’s spectacular skyline.
There are five dates available for this specially-planned V Day cruise: Feb 8, 9, 10, 14 and 16, and spots are limited so book early to avoid disappointment. Price per person is $245 nett on Feb 14 itself, or $195 nett for other dates that week.
Work pants to match with the work shirt
You can never go wrong with a pair of chino trousers as they are versatile enough to keep your man stylish from day to night. Let him dress it up with an iron-pressed white shirt for work, and down with a denim shirt on the weekends.
A cap for bad hair days
Let your man know that you care — protect him from harmful UV rays with this denim baseball cap. Simple yet stylish, it’s a piece that can easily match any casual ensemble.
