It’s coming up to that time of year when shelves are extra full of heart-shaped chocolates, blooming red roses, scented candles and thoughtful gift cards to give your significant other. If you’re a guy, these presents are a no-brainer and will go down a treat, but when it comes to romantic presents for men, there’s less of an established set of choices. Here are some handy ideas if you’re finding it hard to think of fun gifts to lavish on your man this Valentine’s Day that’ll show how much you care!
A sneaky way of restyling your man, buying the clothes you want to see him in may, in some way, be a present from you to you! If you think it’ll go down well, you could buy him some jokey underwear, or replace tattered socks with stylishly designed pairs! Perhaps a little more meaningful though, deck him out with something he’s had his eye on but never followed through and bought, or a shirt bearing something close to his heart.
Nothing says you care as much as buying an engraved or otherwise personalized trinket. Think Zippo lighters or artisanal shaving kits: everyday items that he will carry around with him and will always remind him of your generosity and love! Valentine’s Day has a curious history, but at its core, it is about giving and receiving gifts that in some way embody the special connection you’ve forged with your significant other. The more personalized to their taste, in this case, the better!
If you’re this way inclined, Valentine’s Day is a fun and exciting excuse to raise the temperature of your relationship. Some surprising new underwear, toys, or even just mood-setting incense, lighting and music are always greatly appreciated and mutually enjoyed. If you feel like pushing the boat out a little further, check out products such as those offered at Bathmate Direct that might bring a new element of spice and pleasure to bed-based activities.
There’s a sense in which the amount of money you spend on your partner is in some way linked to the scale of your affection for him. It’s not the case! Spending your time deliberating on something you can make for him, and then expending your creative energies constructing a wonderfully unique present, will mean the world to your partner. Maybe buy him a notebook and inscribe racy Valentine’s Day quotations inside in calligraphy, or paint a portrait of him or you to hang on his wall. These gifts live long in the memory and are invested not in your money but in your thoughtful use of time.
Valentine’s Day remains one of those squares on the calendar that inspires hope, romance, joy and sharing with your hunk. To make it extra-special this year, use these tips as a starting point for a thoughtful, considered present that is embellished with all of your affection and lots of your personality: after all, that’s who he is in love with!
