Valentine’s Day Gifts for Him

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and with the most romantic holiday of the year approaching, you may be wondering what to get your boyfriend or husband.  Here are some great gift ideas for the man in your life that you can find in stores or make yourself.

Plan A Date

Instead of going out and buying him another tie or a pair of shoes, why not plan a romantic or fun outing instead?  The best money spent is money spent on memories anyway, so go ahead. Splurge on a 4-day weekend, and go on a couple’s mini-vacation.  If your man likes the great outdoors, rent a cabin in the woods, bring some champagne, and enjoy some alone time together. 

Let Him Know You Care

If your man is the sensitive type, make him a gift from your heart.  You can use a box filled with notecards, a repurposed deck of cards, or a homemade book and inside you can list all the reasons you love and appreciate him.  It’s sure to warm his heart this Valentine’s day when he reads the reasons (funny and sincere) you love being with him and why you’re proud to call him yours. 

A Surprise Subscription

Why not sign him up for something he already uses?  Try signing him up for a manly beauty box, or for a monthly shave club?  These monthly boxes are gifts that keep on giving, and they are usually under $10 a month.  They contain gifts designed specifically for men and tailored to fit his specific skin type and lifestyle. 

A Manly Bouquet

Ok, now, what man doesn’t love bacon?  Instead of flowers, have a bacon bouquet delivered to his office.  It’s tasty, hilarious, and, in the right relationship, romantic.  And hey, the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, right?  If you can’t afford to order one, you can make one yourself.  You only have to bake the bacon instead of frying it, roll it into a rose-shaped flower, secure it with toothpicks, and pop the buds on top of some disassembled fake flowers. 

Tickets To His Favorite Anything

This one requires a bit of planning ahead, but if you know of anything good coming to your neck of the woods around Valentine’s day then take your man to the concert, art gallery opening, or wine tasting festival of his dreams.  The best Valentine’s day gift is one that surprises!
