It is hard to decide which romantic gifts to buy for men. If you have a man in your life, you may be wondering what are the top 10 romantic gifts for him? In my years as a relationship therapist I must have discussed this a thousand times with different men, women, and couples. What I have done in this article is offer to you those romantic items that appeared most often in our discussions.
1. Buy him a piece of jewelry that symbolizes your love and acts as an ever-present reminder of it when you are both apart. Rings are commonly bought for men but in my discussions with them they are mostly in favor of watches. The back of a watch is also a perfect place to inscribe romantic words.
2. It is often said, the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. Take this to your heart and prepare for him a romantic breakfast in bed. You can both enjoy the food and experience the closeness that only a warm bed can provide. A lazy Sunday morning is perfect for this gift.
3. Almost every man I have spoken to on the subject of top 10 romantic gifts for him has expressed a love of photographs. Take a photograph of yourself, inscribe on the back your words of love, and encase it in a tasteful frame. Everyone will see your beautiful photograph but only he will know what is written on the reverse side; this strengthens your bond and lets him know what your heart thinks of him.
4. Love letters may be old-fashioned in the heady world of online e-cards but they are, nonetheless, an unparalleled way to express your love. Most of us are too shy to confess our real feelings of love. In a love letter we can cast aside shame and speak from our hearts. Your romantic truths will be a gift he can keep and read over and over for the rest of his life.
5. Spend an entire day together and let him know how you feel about him. Tell him how much you love him. Go out and just enjoy yourselves together. Eat, walk, talk, laugh. Let no one else or no everyday concerns come into your world. Focus only one one another.
6. Find some time alone and make him a video of yourself. Over the last 5 years this has become hugely popular. And, no, I don’t mean a dirty video (although you can and I’m sure he would love it!); I mean a video in which you talk, openly, about your feelings for him. Just like love letters this is your opportunity to speak from the heart and give your man something he can treasure forever.
7. Do you remember your first date with him? Can you think of something he might like that would symbolize that date? How about a CD that features a particular song that was playing at the time? Maybe a movie on DVD that you saw at the theater? Remind him of that special beginning and how far you have come.
8. Take some sexy, yet tasteful, photos of yourself. Think sexy lingerie. On the back of each photograph, inscribe something you love about him. Remind him you love him and find him sexually attractive.
9. Another favorite among men when asked about the top 10 romantic gifts for him was cologne. He loves to smell good; you love him to smell good. Mens’ fragrances are sexy and their scent is a constant reminder of your love for him, even when you are both in separate places.
10. A hot massage kit with a promise of many evening-massages to come is a strong favorite among men. There is something about giving a massage that brings lovers closer together.
