It’s that time of year again.
The time of year when card companies and retailers do their best to convince us that love is best shown through superficial displays of material wealth.
And we’ve somehow fallen head over heels for their rhetoric.
Valentine’s Day is less than a month away, which means you have less than a month to assemble the perfect gift for the love in your life.
For some couples, the perfect gift is a priceless vintage watch while for others it’s the sentimentality of something homemade.
For everyone in between, we’ve trawled Lazada for some reasonably priced, fun products that will hopefully at least inspire you to find something that hits the spot for your Better Half.
Today, we’re focusing on the men in our lives. Check back tomorrow for the women’s edition!
