WHATEVER your budget – big or small – Lakeside has some great gifts for Valentine’s Day.

Here are some tips from Angela Poplett, Lakeside’s Personal Shopper, for picking the perfect present for your man.

“Firstly, think about what your man likes and where he shops; it’s also important to decide on your budget.

"If your budget is substantial, you could treat him to some new clothes from House of Fraser: for the fashion-conscious man, the newly launched Without Prejudice range could be a hit; or if your man’s style is more classic, you can’t go wrong with a classic polo shirt by Ralph Lauren (custom fit mesh polo £75).

“For the sophisticated gent, you could invest in a leather briefcase from Next (£80) or pick up some CK IN2U from The Fragrance Shop at the bargain price of £16.99 (reduced from £28).

“If your man’s a gamer, then you’ll be his dream date if you buy him a Playstation 3 (£169.99 at Game) for Valentine’s Day. If that’s a bit out of your price range, though, Game at Lakeside has plenty of gaming accessories too.

“If you want to buy something that’s a little less serious, you could always opt for underwear. Lakeside’s House of Fraser expects to sell over 250 pairs of men’s pants a day in the run-up to Valentine’s Day, so if you’re feeling brave, why not buy him some pink trunks by Calvin Klein for £18?

“Finally, if you’re just looking for a card that you know will make him smile, you’re sure to find the perfect one from the wide selections at Birthdays, Clinton Cards, Hallmark, M&S, WH Smith and The Card Factory.”
