The most love-filled day of the year Valentine’s Day is steadily approaching us, and you may be in a frenzy wondering what you should get that special someone. While us women are typically easy to please with flowers, candy, and jewelry… men can be a little harder to impress. Therefor, I have compiled a list of some ideas that may make the gift giving process a little easier.
Yes, something as simple as fixing your man dinner can achieve the reaction you are hoping for. Remember, as the old saying goes… a way to a man’s heart is through his belly. Put some thought into it. What are his favorite foods? He will appreciate the thought that you put in to preparing him a Valentine’s Day meal.
If you have a man that is hard to shop for, take the easy way out and get him a gift card to his favorite store. While many think this is a cop out and lacks thought, it really isn’t, and allows the guy to get exactly what they would want. This will prevent him from having to return the gift that you thought he would love, when he really wanted something else. Most local grocery or convenient stores carry a variety of gift cards for all interests, or you can also order them online at Giftcards.com.
This idea can spur tons of creativity. Think out of the box. What does your guy really like? Is he into gaming, hunting, fishing, sports, or another hobby? Figure out what he enjoys doing the most, and then fill a gift basket full of items that pertain to that hobby. For instance… if your man is a gamer, you can get him the newest game for his gaming system, and add in some candies and maybe another accessory or two.
What man doesn’t like to smell good for his woman? If he already has a preference, buy it. But if he doesn’t, spend some time looking around and find one that you like. Him knowing that you took the time to find the perfect scent will make the gift more personal.
An “All About Him” Outing
All men have things that they love and love to do. However, sometimes they don’t involve their significant other because they fear she has a lack of interest. Figure out something that you know your guy would really love to do, and plan an outing that is all about him. Put aside the money that you would have spent on a gift, and ask him what he would like to do, and spend the day together doing whatever it may be.
If none of these ideas sound appealing, check out the video below for some other creative suggestions.
