THE BEST VALENTINE’S DAY GIFTS FROM BOMBINATE
If you’re still on the hunt for some Valentine’s Day gift buying inspiration, then look no further than this Bombinate gift guide we’ve put together. Here we feature five gifts for the much-loved men and five for the adored women in our lives, all picked by the editorial team at MenswearStyle HQ. In a world that has lost touch with the meaning of quality, Bombinate oppose the short-lived thrill of trends and “fast fashion” to remind you what value should be. Determined to unearth brands and products that share those values, they’re paving a path for those who demand more from the products they use every day.
Valentine's Day Gifts for Him
How many fragrances do you have in your collection? Men can’t get enough of their scents these days. Meet A.N. OTHER, the excitingly unassuming newcomer on the fragrance landscape. Specialised in deliciously exotic, yet refreshingly versatile fragrances for the modern man, the brand offers its potions in beautiful, purist glass bottles - all at a fair, friendly price too.
Black Coffee Rascal Gloves
It’s still winter and that means frosty mornings are still a regular daily feature. A slick pair of leather gloves for a morning commute to work is a very handy (excuse the pun) gift. Tastefully combining authentic, Spanish expertise in leather making and a clean, modern aesthetic, Café Leather caters to the modern gentleman with these leather gloves lovingly handcrafted in Ubrique.
This luxurious looking number can be a weekend getaway or daily gym bag, making it a truly versatile piece. A bag like this is destined to look better as the years go by, and what a story it could tell. Proudly handcrafted in England, Bennett Winch combines traditional English craftsmanship and acute attention to detail in a collection of beautifully made travel gear for the modern man.
Porsche Milestones Book
Whether it ends up being a coffee table show piece, a bedside table reader of a bathroom companion, this is certainly a cool book to own for a petrol head. The milestones stand beside the race tracks and roads of the world, marking the now 70-year history of the sports car manufacturer. In the world of motorsport, Porsche has always taken the unconventional route. A journey along the various milestones illustrates Porsche s long-held approach of breaking with tradition and striking out in new directions while staying true to itself and remaining unmistakably Porsche. That makes Porsche Milestones a spellbinding read for those inspired by the joy of a Porsche.
Oak Headphone Stand
We just love this beautifully sculptured headphone stand. It will sit proudly on a desk or bookshelf gracefully awaiting the next podcast episode or album release. Oakywood’s wooden decor and accessories prove that wood works – for everything. Each of their contemporary pieces is brought to life using traditional techniques and hand craftsmanship in Poland. The Headphone Stand is a slick, stylish stand for your over-ear headphones.
Valentine's Day Gifts For Her
Brass Pitch Planter
For those of you who can keep plants alive we envy you. If you’re green fingered and love to show off your silent friends, then meet Vitamin Living; the London-based powerhouse whose products are as wildly creative as they are functional. Featuring state-of-the-art ceramic gnomes and monkey fist knot pendant lamps, Vitamin Living makes an invigorating addition to our homes.
Leather Trimmed Apron
Love to cook but hate to stain your designer threads? Maybe you dabble in a bit of pottery making or gardening. There’s something refreshing about manual work - the type to get your sleeves rolled up, your ego going, and your in-laws’ favourite carpet stained. But whether it’s earth in the garden or grease in the garage, your craft is bound to make a mess. Here on out, it doesn’t have to.
Ahhh, the gift of a scented candle. Yes, it’s a popular option but it is for a reason. But don’t go burning it without permission whatever you do! Fuelled by an appreciation for summer and the art of bathing and basking, Cap d'Arsène rethinks poolside essentials with a collection of beautiful, head-turning luxury accessories designed precisely for those moments of bliss.
This is one of those gifts that you can both wear. Although officially sized in menswear it certainly makes for a great unisex piece. Slowdown in style with Danish brand Forét. It takes its name from the French word for forest, and crafts menswear that’s Scandi and playful, in earth tones with a street-style edge. Each piece has been designed to help you get back in touch with nature. Like the Resin T-Shirt – a simple t-shirt in 100% organic Portuguese cotton.
The Bucket List Book
One for the globetrotters who love to plan their yearly adventures right about now. This book will get you dreaming and provide plenty of inspiration. With 1,000 adventures for all ages, it's never too soon or too late to begin the things you've only dreamed of doing. Each activity is location-specific and as geographically unique as birdwatching in Kenya or driving through clouds in Sri Lanka, as well as other to-dos that can be done anywhere, such as sketching a sunset behind an architectural monument.
