Valentine's gift

Men are notoriously hard to buy  for (Ed: no they’re not!) and choosing a Valentine’s Day gift for the man in your life can be difficult, no matter how well you know him. Flowers, chocolates and jewellery could be perceived as being a bit ‘girly’ but a watch could be the perfect solution.

Here are five watch ideas for all types of guys in all price ranges.

With a quartx movement, it’s waterproof to 30 metres (splashproof) and is unisex too (so you can wear it as well and show him who’s Boss).  It’s urban, cool and for guys and girls. Price is a relatively painless £99.00
