  1. Whisky

For the suave guy that likes to drink quality spirits, grab him a bottle of delicious Whisky. My pick is Amfora’s Finest Blended Scotch Whisky. Not only is this an extraordinary blend that’s smooth, soft and balanced but the best part is you can get it personalized! Pick the style and size of your bottle and write a special message, perfect for Valentines Day! He’s sure to be surprised with the first sip of this smokey whiskey blend and keep the customized bottle to remember this special day.

  1. Coffee

For someone that’s always on the go, a great cup of coffee is always appreciated! This year, Nespresso released the Selection Vintage 2014. The pods, built for their quick and easy Nespresso machines are woody, elegant and provide a touch of luxury to your morning cuppa. If you’re thinking about investing in a Nespresso machine, or want to learn more about your current one read this awesome review by Espresso Perfecto! IMG_0546.JPG

  1. Everything-proof speakers

If your partner is a tradie, surfer or an adventurer this speaker would be the perfect gift. The Life Jacket III speaker by Altec Lansing stands out from the rest with its everything-proof exterior and it even floats thanks to its rugged jacket. With the 30 hour life span, bluetooth connection and hands-free communication capabilities – it’s the perfect partner for your man… when you’re not around of course! This speaker is super loud (especially for it’s compact size) and comes in blue, black and red. Buy it from Target, Good Guys and Anaconda.


  1. Socks

Does your man like socks with attitude? Stock up on these essentials from Get Socked! The bamboo, Australia made socks are all about breaking the monotony in our lifestyle. Get more bounce in your man’s step and add a splash of colour to his day with some unique designs! Bamboo is much softer than most fabrics, providing a soft touch of luxury and impressive durability to this everyday accessory. Get Socked!

  1. Gourmet oils and vinegars

If your man likes to cook, why not get him a cooking accessory he can cherish forever. Like the whisky, Amfora creates fine quality vinegars and oils that will satisfy the taste buds. I recently tried the Chilli Rapeseed Oil, which is versatile, flavoursome and a great alternative to olive oil! Used by the likes of Jamie Oliver, chefs and foodies this oil is extracted from rape seed plants from the same family as broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower. Don’t forget to personalise it with a lovely message and voila! A gorgeous present for the chef in your life on Valentine’s Day. Don’t forget to use code word chicontherun17 for 10% discount on any order over $50 – valid through to end of March!OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

  1. Naughty products from System Jo

What guy wouldn’t love a sexy gift box full of goodies! Newly re-freshed System Jo ‘lifestyle’ products are my go-to. The collection carries a HUGE stocklist full of massage oils, lubricants, stimulants, perfumes, hygiene products and even supplements. As a naughty gift to him, why not stock up on some lickable personal lubricants in exotic flavours such as Mint Chocolate, Salted Caramel, Crème Brule, Hazelnut Espresso and Tira Misu! Amazingly, each flavour is created sugar, paraben and propylene glycol free for a gentle glide that is never sticky or tacky and has no after-taste.

7. Bigwig Craft Beef Jerky

A pint of beer and Australian jerky sounds good, right? How about beef jerky with a conscience? Bigwig Craft Jerky is high in protein, low in fat, comes in six mouth-watering flavours and even donates its profits to regional businesses and cancer support groups. Amazing! This low-sugar jerky comes in popular flavour combinations like chilli lime, honey soy and sesame, peri-peri, smoky chorizo, and teriyaki. Buy it online in single flavours or bundle packs!
