For him: 10 best Valentine’s Day gifts under £10

If you want to show you care, without spending the earth, try one of these thoughtful pressies

A lot of us have an aversion to hearts, flowers and bold gestures to mark Valentine’s Day. But there is something nice about giving a loved one just a small something.

We’ve scoured the web to find those little gifts that show you care in a way that’s right for you; whether it’s a practical Brabantia corkscrew to open your special bottle on Friday, or a very personal I Promise pledge, delivered to his door.

Verdict:

Foodies will love Abel & Cole’s heart-shaped cheddar, or one of Donald Russell's tender steaks. And we think The Inseparables matchbox is a smart compromise between sentimental and practical.
