It’s that special time of year again (chocolates and flowers incoming). It’s also a time when we get to tweak, edit and make improvements to our other halves (guilty). Whether it’s aftershave to make him smell better, moisturiser to make his skin smoother, or accessories to make him look more stylish, Cupid is our excuse to get to work.
If you’re looking for a way to show him that you care (while also doing a covert makeover), sunglasses are a great gift option this Valentine’s Day. Both functional and fashionable, they can be used for many years to come. Sunglasses are the perfect present, and here are some Cupid-approved frames to inspire you…
Classic and stylish Ray-Ban Wayfarers – £122.38
No.1 on our Valentine’s sunglasses gift list is a true classic. Because you can’t go wrong with something that’s been tried and tested. And these die-hard Ray-Bans have been around since the 1950s!
Not much has changed in terms of style and design, and they are just as sought after as they were back then. Opt for classic black for a colour that never goes out of fashion. This is a timeless pair of sunglasses…..for a timeless relationship.
Persol sunglasses (similar to James Bond’s) – £159.87
In the movie Casino Royale, James Bond (Daniel Craig) wears a pair of Persol 2720 sunglasses. Although not an exact match, the Persol PO2803S are a very close match. They feature the same rectangular silhouette, the signature Havanacolour, and the brushed metal design element on the sides.
The perfect pair of shades to go with a smart suit, or just casual jeans and a leather jacket at the weekend. Definitely versatile and 100% hero-approved.
Tom Ford ‘Henry’ sunglasses – £284.96
Another favourite of James Bond, these Tom Ford FT0248 Henry sunglasses are a must for fans of the film and were worn in the trailer for SPECTRE. But actions movies aside, everyone loves a classic pair of half rims.
These frames suit just about anyone and are the perfect hybrid of casual and formal. This means he can hit up any party, event, wedding or pub scene without showing you up. Now that’s what we call “a gift for him for you”. ?
Sporty luxe Bolle sunglasses – £79.92
If the look of his sports sunglasses makes you squirm, these chic and understated Bolle FRANK frames are the remedy. They look the part while also featuring HD Polarized Axis lenses. This means he’ll have the same clarity, anti-glare and sun protection, while still looking venue-ready.
Durable enough for everyday wear, and versatile enough for a range of outdoor activities!
Retro Salvatore Ferragamo sunglasses – £275.62
According to GQ Magazine, these are a fashion front-runner for 2021, making it into the mag’s Top 45 list of eyewear for men. If he loves the classic aviator frame, these are a serious upgrade from his trusty Ray-Bans. Blending timeless pilot style with the luxury appeal of a finely crafted small leather good, this eyewear design
The price tag isn’t waht we call bank balance friendly, but it’s a worthwhile investment that he’ll get plenty of wear out of. When you factor in cost-per-wear (and the invaluable benefit of well-put-together arm candy), it’s actually a bargain. ?
