Valentines Day is coming. What in the world are you going to get for your main man? Men seem to be so much harder to buy for than women, especially on occasions such as Valentines Day. Guys have it so much easier. They can buy red roses, jewelry, framed personalized pictures of you and him, or even lingerie. Needless to say, there are a lot of great gift options for guys. Gifts that they will actually like instead of the typical courtesy “Thanks Hon.”
First things first, you need to figure out what your honey really likes. Is he a sports fanatic? Is he an outdoorsmen? Does he like collectables, or is he an avid Texas Holdem/Poker kind of guy? Every man has his passions. Using this information will help give you more ideas on what to get. Next, figure out how much money you want to spend on your gift for him. This will help you narrow down your choices and make your decisions a little easier.
Most really nice Valentines Day gifts can be found for under $30. Here are some ideas.
1. Personalized Flasks: Flasks are by far the most popular gifts for guys. Probably because there are such a wide variety you can find online. Flasks come in all shapes and sizes, but most flasks typically hold around 7-8 oz. Choose which flask you like and then have it engraved. Take into consideration his favorite past times, hobbies and passions. Then have it personalized to reflect this.
2.Personalized Beer Mugs and Engraved Beer Glasses: These also make great gifts. They are actually kind of pretty. (Just don’t mention that to any man!). Having them engraved adds so much more to it. It’s what actually makes it a special gift that shows how much thought you put into it. Beer mugs, flasks and beer glasses have become quite the collectable items these days. Have you ever noticed at parties, the guys are always asking the host where they got that? Then the man host will proudly hold it up and say, “Jessica gave this to me. Isn’t it cool?”, and all his friends agree.
3. Personalized cufflinks, travel bags, pub signs, and even key chains and knives also are great ideas. My husband bought his good friend a really nice knife for his birthday and had it engraved with some saying that only those two understood. But his friend was so happy. He is really into fishing, and my husband knew how much his friend would like it. They rarely see each other, maybe every couple years. Now his friend thinks of my husband when he brings it on his fishing excursions. Don’t feel like you have to buy just a personalized flask or barware. Remember, all you need to do is take his personality into account when choosing his gift and no matter what you give him for Valentines Day, he will genuinely love it.
