9 Best Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas for Men

Feb 5, 2015

Men claim that it’s hard to find a good gift for women. However, most women think that buying gifts for men is more tricky. Sure, this all depends on how much money you can spend on a gift. When you can afford to buy expensive gifts, you may not notice any difficulties. When you are on a tight budget, though, you may want to know some unique yet budget-friendly gift ideas. While Valentine’s Day is all about love and joy, not about money and gifts, it’s great to wow your man with one of these gifts.

1 Tablet or laptop

If you can afford to buy a tablet or laptop, or any other gadget you know your man needs or wants, it can be a good gift idea to consider. Your partner will appreciate this gift and will remember about it every time he will use it. Just don’t get angry or depressed if your guy won’t give you an expensive gift. It doesn’t mean that he is greedy, he just can’t afford it.

2 Shaving set

If you’ve been dating your boyfriend for a few weeks or you’ve just start dating him, it can be difficult to choose the best gift for him. One of the most popular and useful gifts to choose for your partner is a shaving set. Yes, you won’t wow him with your gift, but at least you will give him something useful and thoughtful.

3 Delicious dinner

Every person has its own favorite meal; your man is no exception. Find out your boyfriend’s favorite meal and prepare it on Valentine’s Day. If he doesn’t have any favorite meal, try to cook your favorite one. Having a romantic dinner on Valentine’s Day is one of the best ways to celebrate a day of love. You don’t need to be a chef or spend a few stressful hours in the kitchen to prepare a romantic dinner. There are many easy and quick recipes online. Plus, you know, the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.

4 Trip

This one is an expensive gift idea, so be ready to splurge. Not only will your partner will like and appreciate this gift, he will also be happy to spend a few days with you. No one will disturb you and you will relax and improve your relationship. Valentine’s Day is a great time to have a second honeymoon too. Just make sure you book your tickets and hotel room well in advance to save some cash.

5 Cologne

I know what you think, but this gift idea is not bad at all. Yes, it’s too banal and simple, but he will definitely like your gift, especially if you will buy his favorite scent. If you don’t like your partner’s cologne, pick one you like and wow him with your choice. Hopefully, he will like it, otherwise your sweetheart will be without any gift on Valentine’s Day.

6 Watch

When it comes to the most thoughtful and practical Valentine’s Day gift ideas for men, a watch is something that comes to my mind first. I know this gift is tricky and risky, because not all men like it and many have very specific tastes. But if all other ideas fail, consider buying a good watch for your man. Hopefully, he will like your gift.

7 Pet

I don’t recommend gifting pets, but if you know that your partner is dreaming of owning a pet, then why not? Wow him with your lovely gift on Valentine’s Day. Whether you buy or adopt a pet, take your boyfriend to choose the pet he wants. If you decide to adopt a pet, you will save his life and make your partner a bit happier for many years to come. A win-win solution!

8 Sports tickets

If your boyfriend is a sports fan, there are many gift ideas to consider. My boyfriend once said that sports fans love to receive sports tickets as a gift. To tell the truth, my boyfriend skipped many sporting events because of me. He didn’t want to go anywhere without me and I was always against sports games. Last year, I gifted him with two sports tickets, for him and for me. It was an unusual date for me, but my boyfriend told me that it was one of the best gifts he’s ever received on Valentine’s Day.

9 Love letter

If you are on a very tight budget and you don’t have money to buy your boyfriend a gift, write a love letter for him. Write about your feelings, why and how much you love him and how you imagine spending your life with him. If he won’t accept this gift and tell you that you are greedy, consider your relationship. If he loves you and he cares about you, he will understand you. He will tell you that a love letter is much better than any expensive gifts. A healthy relationship is not about money, after all.
