It’s almost that time of year when love is in the air as, the commercial holiday, Valentine’s Day rolls around once again. And well, either you love it or you don’t— I love it! What I don’t particularly love however is, finding the right gift for my boyfriend. While I might agree slightly with those that believe this holiday caters to women, I mostly believe that it is a holiday to celebrate love. With that said, there is absolutely no way I can leave out bae. And, if you’re anything like me, you won’t want to leave him out either.
I decided that this year I’d get a little head-start on finding the right token of appreciation for my love. And I’m going to share with you all some of the gifting ideas that I like. The days of the shirt and tie are over, so time to think outside the box. I don’t know about you but I like to see my boyfriend’s handsome smile beaming whenever he opens a gift from moi. I also like to give gifts that wont just get tossed aside or to the back of the closet.
For music lovers, you can’t go wrong with a great sounding bluetooth speaker. Some of the speakers I really like are the Bose Soundlink Color, the UE Boom by Ultimate Ears and the JBL Flip, respectively. And if you’re really in the spirit, well, you can snatch any of these up in the color red, to really make his heart skip a beat!
If your guy is into fitness, an activity tracker just might be the perfect gift for him. There’s many brands out there, still I would suggest going with either the new FitBit Charge, Jawbone UP3, or Garmin Vivofit. Up for a challenge? You can gift one to yourself also. Don’t worry about the band being a fashion killer, they come in a variety of colors so you can take your pick. And, if you go with the FitBit (and don’t have a budget), Tory Burch has got you covered with neat metal bracelets or pendants that can disguise a FitBit Flex.
I haven’t met a guy yet, that wasn’t into a sport of some sort. Whatever that sport may be, I’m sure you can find tickets to an upcoming event that will make his eyes light up with delight. And best of all, you’ll get to enjoy it with him when the day comes. I think secretly men love when they can share sports with their woman.
Luxe Shaving Set
No shave November has come and gone. Yes, we’re all for the cause so please still support cancer awareness and research but now its time to make sure your bae is well-groomed. Whether he likes to go to see a barber or not, this gift can delight. It never hurts to try something new, and I’m sure a nice, new and luxurious shaving set, such as The Art of Shaving, will do just the trick.
What? You didn’t think it would make the list? Lol.
Guys may not be as chocolate crazed as us women but they do appreciate it from time to time. Instead of a regular store-bought box of chocolates, aim for something with more of a personal touch. I like the idea of chocolate dipped pretzels or chocolate covered Oreos. Last year, I had chocolate covered Oreos delivered to my boyfriend and that was definitely a win.You can find both of these delicious items and lots more chocolatey treats from most companies that deliver flowers, such as FTD or ProFlowers. Lastly, I’ve always had personalized M&M’s on my mind, perhaps because my boyfriend loves M&Ms. I love that you can personalize them with messages and even pictures too. So cool!
You may not be into buying material gifts or maybe looking to give something a little more sentimental this year. Don’t worry I’ve got you covered. I was talking to my dear friend about Valentine’s Day and she same up with the brilliant idea of making a basket with cute little trinkets that are symbolic of your relationship. I loved the idea! It really forces you to use your creativity and it’s something you can always look back at and reflect upon years to come. I’m sure bae will appreciate your thoughtfulness.
I hope this guide helps you find the right gift for your guy or at least sparks the creative gifting within you! Shopping for men can be such a task. Good Luck!
