Men can sometimes be overlooked when it comes to the Hallmark holiday of love. That’s not to say we don’t receive our fair share of benefits and rewards, but when it comes to Valentine’s Day, it’s typically a lady’s affair. Red roses. Boxes of chocolate. Bubble baths and breakfast in bed. Often too focused on your lovely lady or special girl, Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be all about her. Instead, why not make it about him. So without further ado, here is Man of Many’s 2021 Valentine’s Day Gift Guide For Him.

Go retro this Valentine’s Day with these Deus Sun RX 3 sunglasses from Specsavers.

The collection includes 12 optical and six sunglass styles, each with its own unique look and feel while oozing both style and a timeless aesthetic.
Our pick of the bunch this Valentine’s Day is the Deus Sun RX 3 crafted from chunky acetate in matt black on the outside and tortoiseshell on the inside for an eye-catching two-tone effect.

For a small upfront payment and a recurring weekly subscription starting from $138, the service gives you exclusive use of a car and covers everything to do with owning and running a car (except fuel!). The best thing is there’s no lock-in contract or no exit fees. Just give Carbar two weeks notice to stop, swap or upgrade to a different car, and you’re good to go. And if the car ever needs to be serviced, they’ll deliver a loan car to you so you stay mobile.
With a service that is second to none, a Carbar car subscription is the gift that keeps on giving whether that’s for a loved one or yourself. If you’re in Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane, you can browse hundreds of cars and book your subscription online. They’ll even deliver it for free.
