The popular perception is that Valentine’s Day is tough on a man. On the contrary, if you’re the kind of woman who doesn’t believe in clichés and loves to make her man feel special, you know that the day of love is way trickier for you. The reason is simple! Picking a V-day gift for a man is a mind-boggling game at a time when all the shops are decked in different shades of pink and red. But help is at hand… Here’s a list of Valentine’s Day gift ideas for him that will help you with your conundrum.
Is your man the dapper variety? Well, then we suggest you pick a pair of shoes, a Henley shirt or cuffed jeans. If you’re not sure about the sizes then go for fashion accessories like sunglasses, cufflinks or a tie.
If your budget allows you to buy something extravagant, turn to watches. Most men wear watches on a daily basis. Plus, a watch will remind him of you every day… or shall we say, every minute?! You can also buy him a wallet or a new bag for his laptop.
Technology is to men like fashion is to women, so get your man the latest gadget if he doesn’t have it already like the new iPad. If he does, then maybe look for an upgraded version of his favorite gadget for instance, an iPhone 6 from a 5S. If you’re not looking at spending so much money then get him the right add-ons for his gadgets like a wireless mouse, an external hard drive or maybe a power bank.
For the fitness freaks out there, you may purchase portable resistance bands, wireless Bluetooth earphones, armbands or wristbands for running.
If your Valentine is a travel enthusiast, you would want invest in a good travel or shaving kit along with the right toiletries. Since men don’t really appreciate the cutesy printed kits, we suggest you go for one in black or a dark blue. Add a nice shaving gel, an aftershave lotion, a deodorant roll-on or maybe a beard smoothening lotion if your guy likes to sport a stubble.
If none of these Valentine’s Day gift ideas for him sounds appealing to you then go for traditional treats like chocolate-covered strawberries, a pack of his favourite dark chocolates, a bottle of his preferred wine or better still, take charge and take him out for a sweet candlelit dinner.
