On the whole, ladies tend to be more sensitive and sentimental about Valentine’s Day than men; you’re reading this article. That says it all.
When you’re about to share a romantic meal together, it’s normally the lady who wants to set the mood on Valentines Day by flicking on a soppy love song. But unfortunately, your bloke might not share the same level of enthusiasm as you for Britney Spears’ You Drive Me Crazy or Bryan Adams’ Everything I Do, I Do It For You. And you probably won’t hear him singing along, either.
That said, he’s probably secretly flattered you’re paying him attention. But the truth is, nothing would please him more than receiving a meaningful, memorable Valentine’s gift from you. So why not take action and convey your love today?
But choosing unique gifts for men on Valentines Day is often tricky because by and large, guys aren’t really as bothered about this special day as women are. Plus, the majority of shop signs and adverts promoting gift ideas for Valentine’s Day seem to revolve around women: Valentines Gifts for Girlfriends… Valentines Day Gifts for Women… Valentines Gifts Wife… Valentines Day Chocolate Gifts…
But don’t despair! This isn’t always the case. There is, in fact, a range of Valentine’s Day gifts for men available that would balance the scales – gifts that will save you trudging around endless shops.
Have you considered purchasing your romantic Valentines gifts online, from the ease of your sofa? From chic to cheeky, there’s an enormous selection of personalised Valentines gift ideas on hand that would suit him down to the ground. But knowing what to get him is a common hitch.
First and foremost, you need to determine his likes and dislikes. That could be things he enjoys using and things he enjoys doing. That should give you a big clue as to what to give him this year.
If your bloke loves a tipple, how about personalising a bottle of wine, champagne or even a bottle of whisky with his name? For the ultimate finishing touch, you could even select an original newspaper from a date of your choice – a superb commemorative gift! If he’s fanatical about football, treat him to a personalised football book; he’ll be able to relive the rich history of his favourite football team through newspaper headlines. Or even a footie calendar which features his name alongside all his favourite football legends.
Feeling ultra romantic? Ask him to be your valentine with a spoof newspaper… use your favourite photos and customise personal dates to create the perfect romantic calendar… let him star in one of the best-loved romances of all time… create a personalised poetry scroll for him… The list goes on.
In addition to these more traditional yet romantic Valentines Day presents for boyfriends and husbands, there’s also a variety of presents that would make truly memorable Valentines Day gifts for him. Head to the capital for a classic night out – treat him to a wonderful evening and enjoy a two course meal at an elite restaurant, followed by a show of your choice.
Is he an outdoor enthusiast? Why not enjoy a sightseeing cruise for two along the Thames, then a flight on the London Eye? Or brace yourself for a Lover’s Leap Bungee Jump; launch yourself from a 170ft platform and plummet swiftly towards ground.
So you see, selecting Valentine’s Day gifts for your hubby or boyfriend isn’t nearly as difficult as you first thought!
