Just realised your other half is about to pull it out of the bag on Valentine’s Day? Worried your ‘humorous’ card from the mini-mart is not going to cut it by comparison? Then you’ve just got time to turn things around and make him feel as special and valued as he truly is.
Whether your guy is travel-mad, likes a bike or has a passion for fashion, there's a magazine for every man. Read on for some ideas…
Does your guy fancy himself as the next Peter Jones or Duncan Bannatyne? Then fuel the money-making fire in his belly with a Start Your Business Magazine subscription. This monthly publication was launched in 2004 and provides everything he’ll need to get his start-up off the ground, go global with his existing business or invest in new concerns. There are tips and features on everything from writing a killer business plan to securing that crucial bank loan. Interviews with the likes of Lord Alan Sugar and Sir Richard Branson mean he can learn directly from the most successful entrepreneurs on the planet.
Often the best gifts are the kind of things the recipient would never think to buy themselves. If your other half has frequent wanderlust and loves to explore the globe and if he’s the type to refer to himself as ‘a traveller not a tourist’, then a subscription to National Geographic Traveller magazine is sure to enthrall and inspire him. The vibrant, varied and handy content is based on an appreciation of other environments and cultures and a wish to reach out and experience the extreme beauty and countless wonders this planet has to offer. Maybe he’ll even be inspired to share his next voyage with you!
If your man spends more time at Twickers than he does at home, then a subscription to Rugby World Magazine makes the perfect gift. This magazine perfectly encapsulates the sophistication, grace and utter barbarism of the sport and is widely regarded as the most comprehensive rugby publication available. Whether he’s an armchair enthusiast, die-hard fan, novice or semi-pro player, or even a coach, he’ll love the mix of training tips, news and world-class player interviews.
Show your boyfriend you care this Valentine’s Day – or rather, show him you don’t care if he likes to spend his time ogling – sorry, appreciating - other women. If he’s a pub-loving, lads-night-out bloke-about-town who still likes to kid himself he’s single, you could earn yourself major brownie points with a Nuts Magazine subscription. The biggest weekly men’s mag on the shelves, Nuts is packed with raunchy photo shoots featuring the hottest hotties of the moment, combined with news, sport, motoring and TV features all delivered in witty, banter-down-the-boozer style.
