Since the 18th century, British people have given their loved ones gifts on Valentine’s Day with a card - or valentine - as a token of their affection. In Argentina, where pampeano was born, Valentine’s Day is celebrated for a whole week, with many traditions all celebrating love and friendship. However you choose to celebrate this special time, we have some recommendations for gifts for the special man in your life; be it your father, your best friend, your partner or your spouse.
We wouldn’t be pampeano without our world-renowned polo belt collection, and what better way to show that you care than with one of our luxury handmade leather accessories. Our top choice for men this Valentine’s Day is our Sierra polo belt. This gorgeous belt is inspired by the Andes mountain range which overlooks the polo fields of the La Pampa region of Argentina; the grey and cream thread represent the dramatic snow-capped mountains, intricately hand stitched in our signature pampa diamond motif.
This belt embodies the spirit of adventure, while it’s subtle tones simply ooze class; this belt will make a handsome addition to a sophisticated gentleman’s wardrobe.
We also recommend the Macado polo belt; featuring rich tones of inky navy and deep burgundy draw the eye and will mark you out from the crowd, this is a belt that looks particularly good against denim, and will smarten up any pair of jeans, giving a unique edge to such a wardrobe staple. All of our belts are hand made by local artisans in La Pampa, making a belt from pampeano a genuine slice of South American style. What makes a belt from pampeano a perfect gift for a loved one is the complimentary personalisation of up to three letters which comes as standard, which will be embossed across the belt loop. This personal touch will really show how much you care.
If you’re finding it hard to choose from our wide selection of belts, fear not: consider the Gift a Polo Belt voucher. This voucher is valued at the price of a polo belt, allowing the recipient to choose whichever belt he desires. This is a great gift for those men who are very particular about their style and love to choose for themselves.
A great gift which men always appreciate is an authentic leather wallet. Luckily, pampeano stock a wide range of wallets, from the Dinero card wallet, for those who favour carrying cards, to the Moneda coin wallet, for those who are forever losing change. These wallets come in a range of colours, to suit men of all styles.
For those who like to travel light, consider the Rombo card holder. This smaller vessel still packs a punch, with four card slots and a hidden compartment in the centre to keep notes. This wallet is perfect for smart attire, as it maintains the lines of suits and pressed trousers.
If your partner travels a lot, perhaps for work or just for fun, consider choosing one of pampeano’s luxury travel accessories. As a brand pampeano has travelled from Argentina to Great Britain, and travel and adventure are things we are very passionate about; from bags to tags, pampeano’s travel range is something to behold.
For Valentine’s Day, consider our Passport Cover and Luggage Tag gift package, which comes with a choice of any of our Azar passport covers and a choice of Sello luggage tags. This practical and stylish combination will enrich the journeys of any seasoned traveller.
For the messier men - there are a lot of them around - show them that you know them with the Charola coin tray. This gorgeous leather gift will help them declutter their hallway, kitchen or office with somewhere to put their loose change and keys. The Charola comes in a variety of colour combinations to fit any style of home.
However you celebrate this Valentine’s Day, we hope that you’ll be inspired to choose a unique gift for your loved one.
