It seems that Valentine’s Day is all too often considered to be the day of the year that a man buys his significant other a gift or two. The stores are full of flowers and chocolates; but what happens if you want to treat your boyfriend or husband to something special this February 14? If you’re stuck for gift ideas for the man in your life then read on.
The first thing you need to do is start early. Valentine’s comes around the same time every year so you have plenty of notice. If you think you might like to make a hand made present then you probably need to get started right after Christmas.
If your man is a music fan then think about buying tickets to see his favourite band, or if you really want to show him how much you love him take him to watch his favourite team play sports!
The best presents are often those that come from the heart and don’t need to cost the earth. You might like to cook him a home cooked candle lit dinner with his favourite foods and a delicious desert. If you’re creative then you might consider writing a song, or even a poem.
For a gift that will be treasured for years to come buy a leather bound notebook and start a You and Me journal. Simply write a Valentine’s message or poem and add a photo of you. Then for each special occasion such as anniversaries and birthdays, and all future Valentine’s days of course, you can add to the book. When you are old and grey together this will be a gift you will both treasure.
Whatever you decide to do remember that Valentine’s Day is not just about him showering you with love and affection, and that he might be a little surprised, but extremely happy, if you also show him how much you care.
