Sharp Guy Magazine's Valentine's Day Wishlist

Valentine's Day is almost here and as much as you may be looking forward to to the nice things you may be given to mark the international day of love, you are probably also a bit nervous that it may be a repeat of the howlers on yesteryear.

If you'd like to avoid the awkwardness of having to pretend to like Valentine's Day gifts, the team at Sharp Guy has put together a list of gifts and experience that you can discretely mention to your loved one. Alternatively, if you're single and flying solo this Valentine's Day, and would still like to treat yourself, our wishlist could just be the inspiration you need.
