One of the few days in the year dedicated to celebrating the people around us, Valentine’s Day gives us all a reason to pause, reflect and tell our loved ones exactly how important they are to us. Everyone celebrates in their own ways, creating beautifully unique traditions that only they know, but whether you cook a selection of your favourite shared foods, or snuggle on the couch watching the movie from your first date, you probably also mark the occasion with a thoughtful Valentine’s day gift for your other half.
Choosing a present can be a tricky task but, if you’re looking for something a little more long-lasting than the traditional flowers and chocolates, there’s plenty to love at Barbour. From luxurious accessories and knitwear to stylish clothing and outerwear, our Valentine’s Day gift guide for 2022 has something to suit everyone this year. Take a look through our favourite picks to surprise your special someone on February 14th.
Whether this is your first Valentine’s Day together as a couple, or your 50th, finding a beautiful present for the woman in your life is important. To help you narrow down your search, we’ve picked out some of our favourite pieces at a range of prices to suit your budget. Whether you’re looking for a small Valentine’s day gift for your girlfriend, or a more expensive gift to surprise your wife with, you’ll find the perfect present below.
Valentine's Day gifts for girlfriend
If you and your partner spend a lot of time outdoors, whether that be heading out for romantic woodland strolls or taking picnics at the beach, surprising her with a beautiful hat and scarf is a wonderful way to say “I love you”.
At Barbour, we have a wide range of outdoor accessories to choose from, but we particularly love our Penshaw Cable Beanie and Hailes Tartan Wrap. Featuring a classic cable-knit design with a ribbed turnback, the stylish women’s beanie is perfect for everyday wear, while the faux-fur pom-pom and leather branded detailing adds a little touch of luxury. If you really want to surprise her, adding the tartan wrap to her bundle of Valentine’s Day gifts is sure to do so. Beautifully soft, this Barbour scarf comes in a soft pink and grey colour and features a tasselled hem for a traditional style.
Valentine’s Day gifts for wife
If you’re really looking to amaze and are searching for a Valentine’s Day gift for her that will last for years to come, why not surprise her with her own Barbour jacket? In our long history, we’ve designed countless stunning coats and jackets for women to look and feel amazing in. The full range of Barbour jackets for her has something to suit every woman’s style, but if you aren’t sure what style she’d love the most, we recommend choosing between two Barbour staples - the Barbour Kelsall Waxed Cotton Parka and the Cavalry Polarquilt Jacket.
Perfect for keeping out the cold on chilly days, the Kelsall parka jacket features Barbour’s classic wax finish while also taking on more contemporary style notes with the fishtail hem and faux-fur trimmed hood. If the woman in your life prefers a sleeker, more tailored silhouette however, she’ll love the Barbour Cavalry jacket. Inspired by the classic riding style, this quilted coat reimagines cavalry design and provides some extra weather protection through the high collar, diamond-quilted outer and cosy fleece lining.
While flowers and chocolates have long-since become a staple present for women, Valentine’s Day gifts for him can be a challenge. Fortunately, if you’re struggling to pick out that perfect present for the man in your life, our range of budget-friendly men’s Valentine’s Day gifts has something for everyone. From essential accessories that will keep him cosy until the weather warms up, to statement coats he’ll never want to take off, find the perfect gift for him below.
Valentine's Day gift ideas for boyfriend
Simple, subtle and yet effortlessly stylish, the Barbour Carlton Beanie and Donegal Gloves make the perfect pair. Both available in a rich dark green colour and featuring leather badges embossed with the Barbour logo, this sophisticated pair can be worn together to create a coordinated, cold-weather ready outfit that will never go out of style. Practical and functional as well as stylish, the Carlton beanie also offers exceptional warmth through the wool-blend yarn and fleece lining, while the Donegal gloves keep cold fingers cosy with Scotland’s traditional Donegal wool yarn.
Valentine’s Day gifts for husband
For couples who are looking for something extra special this year, only a truly show-stopping men’s Valentine’s Day gift will do, and our Barbour jackets for men certainly fit the bill. Timeless and unmistakably original, every man deserves to have a classic Barbour jacket in his wardrobe, and our Ashby Wax Jacket or Heritage Liddesdale Quilted Jacket are excellent choices.
If the man in your life looks for style and comfort in his clothing, he’ll love the Ashby wax jacket. A robust choice, the Ashby features Barbour’s classic waxed cotton with a matte finish which instantly adds a relaxed, lived-in feel. Finished with Barbour’s iconic original tartan lining and cut to offer a tailored fit, the Ashby wax jacket balances traditional and contemporary styling effortlessly.
For men who prefer more clean-cut designs, the Barbour Heritage Liddesdale quilted jacket makes for the perfect present. Offering an elegant, slimline fit, the Liddesdale jacket steers away from the classic wax jacket, instead boasting our signature diamond quilting with a contrast corduroy collar. Like the Ashby wax jacket, those who prefer the Liddesdale will also be kept warm in the cold, the wind-resistant outer, warm quilting and durable liner ensuring a comfortable layer of protection from the weather.

Designed with white and navy Breton stripes, the cosy Belmount jumper draws inspiration from our Maritime heritage. Featuring raglan sleeves with ribbed hem cuffs and an asymmetrical buttoned chest, this striking knitted jumper is subtle yet eye-catching. If your Valentine’s Day plans take you into the cold, our Miriam jacket is a must-have.

Valentine’s Day clothes for him
The perfect pairing that styles easily for everyday wear and more formal occasions alike, the Barbour Essential Lambswool Half Zip Sweater and Merino Cashmere Tartan Scarf work together just as well as flowers and chocolates.
