Since the naming of February 14th as Valentine's Day, men have been subjected to planning the day's activities and shopping for gifts. It’s a new year, and things are more progressive. The burden has been lifted, and women have also taken up the responsibilities of V-Day, offering presents and not just their presence.
Think of Male Must-Haves
Men have their must-haves, just as women cannot live without certain accessories such as handbags, coin purses, and shoes. This is different for each guy, but it is easy to get a general sense of style or taste once you look at what he already wears. Maybe he needs an upgrade; limited edition shoes, new watch, or a new bow tie.
The Gift Doesn’t Have to Be Expensive
Gift-giving doesn't have to break the bank. A carefully decorated picnic can be inexpensive with flowers, candles, fabrics, and his favorite home-cooked food. The setup could be at the beach, on a rooftop, a drive-in theater, or in the mountains. The possibilities are endless.
Beyonce said it best, “Let me cater to you!” You can make a gift bag with self-care products just for him. To top it off, you can treat him to a relaxing at-home spa treatment. If you are looking for tips to give the best massage, Youtube has you covered!
Men Like Home Décor Too
Some simple home decor could also be great. Switch it up and add some vibrant pillows and maybe a new rug. The best part is these items now belong to the house and can be used in future setups in other rooms. Set the tone with soft music, an excellent movie, and his favorite drinks. If you don't live together, you could find a way to decorate his car or even his man cave.
Romantic Gifts Aren’t Absolutely Essential
Also, not every V-Day gift has to be romantic; it can be something your partner enjoys doing. Send him and his boys to a game, and you'll be the perfect partner in their eyes. If unsure what kind of gift to get, a gift card is an ideal idea. Now he can get what he truly desires, and everyone is happy about that.
The best gift is a thoughtful one, so put some thought into it before the big day. Ask him questions, gather intel from friends and family, and make it a day he’ll never forget!
