Gifts for him

When it comes to buying the best gifts for boyfriend, you are either a girl that already knows what to get him, or you’re looking for some great ideas! If you already have a list of that perfect gift for boyfriend, then you probably have a good history of always knowing what to get your boyfriend for his birthday. However, if you’re like the rest of us girlfriends, you probably need to look through some gift ideas for boyfriend before you’re able to settle on something to purchase. But that’s okay! That’s what we’re all here for right? We all want to be a good girlfriend and get him anniversary gifts for boyfriend that he likes; after all, men can be somewhat hard to buy gifts for!

If we look at the nitty-gritty details, you’re either looking to get gifts that either you boyfriend needs or wants. When you separate the gift selections into either of those categories, sometimes it can help to narrow down what the best presents for boyfriends may be. If you are the practical type, then most of your gifts will probably center on things that you know he needs. These could be things that he has mentioned himself, or that you notice he needs. The second side of the coin is getting him things that he wants, and ideas will usually come from his explicit mentions of those items, or subtle hints about certain items during the time leading up to the gift-giving occasion, be it for a Birthday, Anniversary, finding out what to get your boyfriend for Valentine’s Day or knowing what to get your boyfriend for Christmas.

Many girlfriends think that having the perfect boyfriend gift ideas is a near impossible task, but if you take the to think about his interests, his dislikes, his hobbies and his needs, you will almost always be able to find either a product or service that will be a great boyfriend gifts. We’re here to help give our ideas, as we’ve had a few boyfriends in the past (some of which have turned into husbands!), and we hope that you’ll be able to find it valuable!

  • Hong Kong at Ocean Park Marriott Hotel

    The newly-opened Hong Kong Ocean Park Marriott Hotel is the ideal base to begin your seafaring adventures. Hong Kong might be better known as a mecca for shopping, but with numerous islands with scenic, picturesque beaches, this is a destination you can consider for a nautically-themed holiday too. The Ocean Park Marriott Hotel is situated on the south side of the island right next to the renowned theme park, Ocean Park. It is also a short drive away from the most famous beach in the territory, Repulse Bay with its designer boutiques and elegant restaurants lining the sandy beach. There are numerous standout features at this hotel, notably the environment-conscious décor. The outer metal façade designed by Aedas resembles serene, calm waves of the sea, whilst the central lagoon pool is the largest of its kind in Hong Kong (a city where space is at a premium). Living walls and rainwater collection There are countless green initiatives taken up by Marriott in the design of the hotel. The façade has energy-saving components to ensure the buildings are kept cool in the summer months. Ocean Park Marriott Hotel You will also notice vertical living walls as well as rainwater collection areas. The rooms have exceptional views of the lagoon or Ocean Park and generally have elegant and discreet nautical or animal themes. The rooms are fully air-conditioned and have a living/sitting area (another rarity in hotels in Hong Kong). There is a sumptuous featherbed with a high-quality duvet to guarantee the perfect night’s sleep, especially as you are far away from the hectic streets of downtown Hong Kong. Dining out, Hong Kong-style They have a twenty-four-hour fitness centre with the latest, state-of-the-art cardiovascular equipment and free weights. The central lagoon is beautifully landscaped and open for swimming daily from 8.00 am – 5.00 pm. The renowned Harnn Heritage Spa has opened its first outpost outside of Thailand and Vietnam in Hong Kong at Ocean Park Marriott. Hong Kongers love dining out and at this hotel, they have a plethora of options with four restaurants available from Cantonese to a premium steakhouse. My advice would be to head to their Marina Kitchen first and sample the delights of a Hong Kong buffet. Hong Kong buffets are unlike anything else you will encounter in Europe, they tend to have both the best of Western and Eastern cuisine along with a healthy selection of seafood and a mouth-watering selection of desserts. Chilled crustaceans The Marina Kitchen version exemplifies the best this city has to offer. On arrival, you are greeted by the most splendid display of chilled crustaceans and shellfish imaginable: crabs, lobsters, mussels, whelks… You might think you’ve arrived at Atlantis. The seafood doesn’t stop there with a glorious selection of sushi and sashimi available. And then you have your Western hot dishes like premium cuts of roast beef or oriental dishes like honey-roasted char siu. Another dining option is Neptune’s restaurant inside Ocean Park with an unsurprisingly strong seafood bias. You genuinely get to taste the local delicacies that are seldom on Chinese restaurant menus in Europe. Five thousand fish It is not every day that you come across marinated abalone in Hua Diao, plum wine, whisky and sake for starters and braised oysters with bamboo shoots and sake in a clay pot. And all this served to you whilst a shoal of exotic fish is swimming around the largest glass tank you will ever come across. The park itself has something for all tastes from the adrenaline-pumping, The Abyss, where you plunge twenty stories straight to the ground to the more genteel like penguin and panda watching. Their grand aquarium is not to be missed with a jaw-dropping collection of five thousand fish from over four hundred species housed in an aquarium dome with an expansive thirteen-metre-wide acrylic viewing panel. Ocean Park isn’t just about fun rides and animal watching but they are one of the leading conservation organisations in the Far East and regularly run informative days out for school children to learn about what they can do to help protect the environment and endangered species. If you want to go on a journey less ordinary next time you visit Hong Kong, make sure you visit Ocean Park and the neighbouring Marriott Hotel.  

  • Belmond’s Grand Hotel Europe St Petersburg

    Situated at the heart of Russia’s cultural capital of St Petersburg is The Grand Hotel Europe, a signature hotel in the Belmond Group. Dating back to 1875, the hotel is quite possibly the most famous in Russia and has a rich and important cultural legacy. The Belmond Grand Hotel Europe is situated between Nevsky Prospect – St Petersburg’s main thoroughfare – and Arts Square, in an area bustling with cafes, boutiques and bars. The State Russian Museum, The Hermitage Museum, The Church of the Spilled Blood and the Fabergé Museum are all also just a short stroll away. Perfectly placed then, for a cultural weekend. The hotel’s entrance The hotel resides inside a grand Neo-Classical building from 1824 that was designed, like so much of the city centre, by an Italian architect named Carlo Rossi. Rossi also designed part’s of the royal Winter Palace and its adjoining square, and the Russian National Library – and his designs, which include the Belmond Grand Hotel Europe, are recognised for their formal grandeur. The hotel opened 50 years later inside Rossi’s building and became the first five-star hotel in Russia and over the centuries it has attracted illustrious historical visitors including the Romanovs, Debussy, Tchaikovsky and Rasputin. In 1908 the interior was given an Art Nouveau makeover by the Russian architect Fyodor Lidval and French designer Leon Benois, complete with elegant wood panelling, coloured tiles of snaking branches and drooping flowers and stunning glass chandeliers and stained windows that still remain today. The hotel retains its feeling of bygone elegance, with oil paintings, huge wooden doors and marble corridors – but has all the added trappings of modernity associated with a luxury hotel. Inside there is a glass-covered internal courtyard café complete with an in-hotel chocolate factory (watch out for the vodka ones) and a small arcade of shops selling everything from Rolexes to antique Russian icon paintings running around the edge. Leading off from the lobby there is also a health club, spa and round the clock concierge. One of the hotel’s historical suites Upstairs the 266 rooms (although you would never know it) are spread across the building’s flanking wings. 88 of these are ‘Superior’ and 108 are ‘Deluxe’ but the real showstoppers are the suites. 6 of them are ‘Historical’, named after famous guests at the hotel (the Pavarotti Suite comes complete with a grand piano) and notable residents of the city (the Fabergé Suite comes filled with cases of replica eggs). They are all decked out in the finest antiques, come with dedicated butler service and are supplied with a menu of newspapers, bathroom products and pillows. Each is wonderfully evocative of the hotel’s origins, but with the mod-cons. There are also 6 Avant-Garde suites, named after Russian 20thcentury artists such as Kandinsky and Malevich. These one-bedroom spaces come with amenities including walk-in wardrobes, balconies, in-room dining tables and palatial marble bathrooms stocked with Jo Malone products. They’re tasteful with subtle and elegant features aimed at the most aesthete of travellers. The hotel’s lobby bar Back downstairs, past the ornate lobby where uniformed-clad doorman stands to greet guests and visitors alike from the arctic winds, there is a sumptuous bar in a room decorated with original heating stoves and gilded stucco cornicing, and which hosts a live pianist and singer each evening. Open round the clock, the bar has become famous in the city for its elegant interiors and exquisite drinks and attracts many locals and visitors often turned out in a black-tie for aperitifs before the theatre or ballet. L’Europe Restaurant Upstairs away from the bar is L’Europe Restaurant, Russia’s oldest and most historic restaurant. Whilst the hotel originally prided itself on offering lifts, steam heating and hot water, this restaurant had the first electric lightbulbs in the entire city. Framed by a monumental turn of the 20th century stained glass panel of Apollo in his chariot, this room with its balconies and alcoves has welcomed diners including Igor Stravinsky, Bill Clinton and Queen Elizabeth II since 1905. Elton John even performed an intimate impromptu show here in 1979 while staying at the hotel. The menu is fine European and Russian Haute dining and offers traditional dishes such as stroganoff and a meringue pavlova said to be blessed by the ballet dancer herself. It is regarded as the best fine dining St Petersburg has to offer. The hotel’s caviar and champagne bar The hotel also boasts its own caviar bar and restaurant – the only one in the city. Opened in partnership with Dom Perignon in 2016, guests can sup on 15 varieties of the fishy delight in any of the Russian ways; off the back of their hand, on a blini or from inside a truffled egg. The restaurant has a wonderfully curated menu of both small and large European and Russian plates to keep you dining into the night – and even has the city’s only vodka sommelier, who claims to know the Holy Grail secret of how to avoid hangovers…. The hotel’s newest restaurant Azia is a sleek and modernist affair that wouldn’t look out of place in Mayfair. Offering some of the best pan-Asian cuisines we have ever tasted, it’s little wonder it’s gained such a reputation in the short time it has been open. The restaurant also has its own sushi counter and a sommelier to help you pick out a drink from the 20 different countries offerings on the list. Azia Restaurant at the Belmond Grand Hotel Europe With rich surroundings and captivating history, it is easy to see why this hotel has become so famous. It is the ideal spot from which to base oneself while exploring the many museums, palaces and waterways of Russia’s finest city. And as the warmer months approach and St Petersburg’s rivers thaw, there has never been a better time to visit. The St Petersburg Cultural Heritage Experience package at Belmond Grand Hotel Europe includes a Three-night stay including return airport transfers from Pulkovo International

  • The Mandrake Hotel

    From the street, The Mandrake doesn’t give much away. Located a few minutes walk from Oxford Street, the converted office blocks fit in seamlessly with the swanky, refined surroundings of Fitzrovia; inside it’s a different story. We enter through a dark, nightclub-Esque tunnel into the concrete, velvet-clad reception. It smells amazing, and the lighting’s low, seductive, setting the tone. The mandrake, a mystical, hallucinogenic plant (known most widely amongst Harry Potter fans) forms a loose theme for the hotel, the general idea being out-of-this-world eccentricity. Behind the long bar, a fantastical taxidermy creature is perched mid pounce in a glass case: half peacock, half kangaroo with the petite head of a deer. All over the hotel, there are similar curiosities: abstract sculptures, African masks and commissioned artworks which change depending on the artist-in-residence. During our stay, there’s a lot of spray paint scrawled across the walls. The hotel is the first from Beirut-born Londoner Rami Fustok, who converted two former office blocks to form this urban jungle. It has recently rained when we arrive and the wooden open-air walkway that surrounds the central courtyard on the upper floors gives off an exotic, musty smell that reminds us of humid climes. Plants hang down from the four storeys in glistening, leafy curtains. There’s not a huge amount of actual space, but it feels expansive and labyrinthine. We glimpse a cosy-looking greenhouse from an upper floor terrace and can’t work out how to reach it. Part of the joy is stumbling into hidden places. Past the main bar we discover a small library, then a private dining room with glossy red, lacquer walls. Before dinner, we find ourselves in the basement where the hedonism is turned up a notch (you have to experience it, to know what I mean). Strangely, this is also where the spiritual wellness workshops take place. We’re here for a Gong Bath and we’re late. We trip our way over limp bodies to find spare mats. The leader tells us to relax, close our eyes; I’m shuffling anxiously, eyes wide open. The problem is with a place like this, you can’t be exactly sure that anything is what it says it is and I can’t help feeling that a ‘gong bath’ could easily descend into something more cultish. It begins very softly with something like jingling bells (eyes now closed), then what I assume are the gongs produce soothing, deep sounds that layer over one another, increasing in volume. It’s extremely calming and intense; it makes me feel the good kind of weird. We rise blinking back onto the ground floor for pre-dinner drinks at Waleska. The cocktail ingredients list is a little baffling (Hemp Oil Washed Yaguara Branca is one) so we ask for recommendations. Passion Flower for me and Pine for my guest. Mine’s delicious, a flowery champagne infusion, but the mix of pine needles, shiitake, sake and bourbon is a little too off-the-wall for both of us. Dinner is just across the courtyard at Serge et le Phoque, the second outpost of the Michelin-starred, Hong Kong-based restaurant of the same name. The dining room’s a beautiful, soothing space with tables tactically arranged for privacy, aubergine-coloured chairs, pink tables and mustard velvet booths. The menu is sharing plates based around seasonal ingredients with a strong Peruvian influence and a mix of European flavours. Each dish comes when it’s ready, prettily presented and packed with flavour. The ceviche’s our favourite. Our room for the night is a Junior Suite with windows looking out onto the street. Each room is individually styled with its own colour scheme and quirks. Ours is cream, brown and gold, with an enormous curtained four-poster bed; the television rises out of a leather cabinet at the foot of it. There are art books casually placed on the sides for idle perusing, Grown Alchemist bathroom amenities? and an eclectic minibar featuring a variety of elixirs promising everything from romance to eternal health (or thereabouts). The lighting is perfect: lots of lamps, warm bulbs. We love it all. Even better, we’re far enough away from the bar and restaurant to enjoy absolute silence. As idyllic as the terrace rooms might seem with their sliding doors and fragrant falling flowers, it’s likely to be a late-night whether you want it or not. The next morning it’s a bit of shock to emerge out of the tunnel back into the heart of central London, back to reality. Staying at The Mandrake is a bit like tumbling into the pages of a storybook that writes itself around you. It’s another-worldly experience. For more information on The Mandrake Hotel, see here.
