Valentine’s Day is on it’s way again! Friday 14th February, don’t forget! Now, gentleman, and ladies, Valentine’s Day is oh so special.

So weather you’re buying for your lover, looking to treat the man in your life, or you’re a ‘man of new’ ready to drop some hints, here’s the list to get you inspired.
Mesh Classic – Votch – £130.00

Spread it about! Spread it where you fancy. 😉 Hotel Chocolat have done it again with another stand out product destined to be devoured. Going with their ethos of low sugar high cocoa, this classic praline chocolate and hazelnut spread is soulful, satisfying, rich and smooth.
All men love chocolate, we all do of course. It is by far, the sexiest, most romantic most addictive thing out there, and even better when it’s fully vegan certified and from a company who look after their people.

Man of New first came across Watson & Wolfe in the Vegan Living Magazine in the UK. England-based brand Watson & Wolfe believe luxury quality is in its materials and craftsmanship, naturally!
And as such, their products are expertly and unbeleivably created using materials such as flax and cotton mixed with corn, soybeans, and vegetable oils, which are layered together, with a soft recycled-bottle interior. Low-impact, sustainable and vegan. This stylish document pouch replicating a traditional luxury leather product will surely impress the man in your life.

Every man should have a shaving brush. Even better, every man should have ‘vegan’ shaving brush, made using synthetic hypoallergenic fibres instead on the usual badger hair. Better yet, the vegan shaving brush from Wild Sage + Co would be a perfect addition to any man’s shaving regimen.
By raising the facial hair, a traditional soap lather application to any wet shave is a must for closeness, comfort and precision. From a brand that’s dedicated to home-produced skincare that’s ethical, sourced from nature and good for both skin and the environment. Do him a favour this Valentine’s Day, and get this brand on his shelf!

Brighton Gin Pavilion Strength 40% – Brighton Gin – £37.50 (700ml)
What gentleman doesn’t like gin? Well at Man of New, I certainly do, and I’m always on the look out for new brands looking to push the flavours and the ethnically of their heritage. Introducing Brighton Gin, created from a passion of literally both these two fabulous things.
A gin that embodies the Spirit of Brighton: unusual, playful and fiercely independent. Uisng only certified 100% certified organic and vegan materials, all the way down to the glue on their labels. Seriously, this Valentine’s Day, no other gin will do.

Let’s face it, the brief is back. It just is, and it ain’t going anywhere regardless of the stick it gets. It’s sexy, practice and a true classic essential to any Valentine’s prezzie. Put it in his gift back already.
Created using bamboo viscose and cotton, these two materials marry together to create a superior softness than all-cotton that is also matchless in temperature and moisture control and even has naturally inbuilt UV protection. Operated in the UK, BAM is dedicated to high quality ethically created garments that he will love wearing again and again. Another brand for the list favourites, guys!

Let’s face it. Buying flowers for a man can be tricky. So instead, I dare you to challenge any cosmopolitan guy who’s never had a plant to try and neglect a cactus! Especially one this resilient. A great test in his caring nature, a cactus is great for any Valentine’s Day gift for those who’re looking to give something a little different.
Water it sparingly, give it moderate sun, and any man will glow with pride to see his prickly bezzie flourish. You can buy any cactus from any garden centre, though if you’re looking for a budget option, the Ikea echinocactus option is certainly suitable.
