Buying gifts for people can be a hard task and buying it for that special man in your life can be even more nerve-wracking, especially when it’s for a special occasion like Valentine’s Day!

To make it just a tad easier, we’ve put together a guide to buying that perfect gift for him…

 

1. For the foodie

If you and your guy love to spend weekends hitting up the latest popular food spots in and out of town, then he’ll definitely appreciate some uniquely Malaysian snacks for those in-between moments.

Head over to The Red Cherry at Jaya One and you can find an assortment of interesting local delights to choose from. From salted egg fries to durian spread (for the ‘kaki’ durian), you’ll have plenty of options to choose from AND you can sample most of ’em too.

If you don’t have the time for that, you can always browse online as well!

 

2. For the sports fanatic

It’s hard not to escape the football fever, especially when the World Cup is happening this year too. If he’s got a favourite team, you can always get him a jersey with his name on it. MYkitzone can help you with that. If you want to go the extra mile, search for one from the year he was born!

You can even get some help and design a special one that has his ‘sports’ nickname (they all sure got). If he’s not a football guy, get something that’s related to his chosen activity, whether it’s basketball, badminton or something else.

 

3. For the classy guy

He’s always dressed to impress but you know that he’s always got your back too. You can never go wrong with a classic cologne but instead of the usual bottled ones, why not go for something different and choose a solid cologne?

The Apothecary Malaysia has different solid colognes to suit your bae’s style. Hot Shot is one that has Red Apple and Sandalwood among other ingredients, which lends a nice mix of warm and cool. Colossus on the other hand, is a nice citrus-based one to go with. 

You can check out the rest of the scents for yourself here.

 

4. For the artsy fellow

If your man’s the kind of guy that doesn’t mind paying a visit to the new art gallery in town or checking out some sort of theatre performance, you could give this a try!

If his favourite band is playing somewhere, score tickets to that and he’ll definitely be ecstatic. You can also take a look at places like The Gaslight and The Bee to see what events might be interesting for him. 

An artsy workshop that you guys can take together could be another great idea, too. After all, experiences are also memories!

Here are some places that conduct art workshops that you can check out:

 

5. For the environmental warrior

His consciousness of environmental issues make him your own personal hero and he’s probably always on the lookout for more ways to do his part.

Instead of getting him something, why not suggest that you two take part in a volunteer project together?

The Juara Turtle Project for example, is an initiative which centers on turtle conservation, where you can help out with the turtle nests and even possibly release hatchlings!

Alternatively, do a little bit of research online for other volunteering programmes that he will find just as appealing.

 

6. For the loveable geek

Whether he’s a proud geek or someone who has geeky tendencies, chances are pretty high that he’ll have some sort of item to signify his allegiance to his fandom.

If he has a favourite superhero, why not commission an artist to create a special drawing of that favourite superhero in a Malaysian setting? Or better yet, get the artist to draw your man as his own special superhero!

Here are a few artists who do just that:

If you want more options, ask your friends for recommendations or have a browse through social media for yourself. There’s a lot of talent and different styles that we have right here in Malaysia!

 

7. For the chilled out dude

The usual activities with this man involve a lot of ‘lepak’ sessions with friends at the ‘mamak’. Get him a brand new shirt that will leave him and his friends chuckling. The selection from A Piece Of Malaysia (APOM) is definitely something you can take a look at.

They currently have a pop-up store in Publika, but you can check them out online too.

Gift-giving is a hard task but you don’t need to overthink it. As long as it comes from the heart, your man is surely going to love whatever you get for him.
