It is waaaaay too easy for a man to call an 800 number, give a credit card, and have flowers delivered. What thought or effort is involved in that? Come on, guys, you have to try a little harder.
Women, if you are looking for something different as a Valentine’s Day gift idea for your man, here are a few thoughts:
You’re the Spring in My Step
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways…….. That’s how Shakespeare might have said it but in today’s world you need some fresh ideas on how to express your love. This sweet book gives lots of ideas, like “you’re the butter on my biscuit,” or “the flame to my candle.” You can just give this little book as a gift, OR you can use the words in cards, signs and other home made ideas. This is precious!
My husband’s shaving kit is in bad shape. He refuses to replace it because it was a gift from his father. I took it to the local shoe repair shop to see if it could be repaired but its condition is hopeless. This is the gift I am getting for my spouse this year! He’s been carrying his travel supplies around in a plastic bag so I’m going to help him step up his game.
Mad Libs in Love
Did you and your kids love Mad Libs? This could be a great solution to Valentine’s Day on a budget! You can fill-in-the-blanks with just your spouse, or get the kids involved too! Laughing together is part of a love that lasts.
ShowerLine Shower Caddy
For some recent holiday, I bought my husband a great metal shower caddy which he regularly tells me that he loves. He recently retired from one job and is doing another one that requires more travel. When choosing a gift for a man, remember showers are significant for them. This shower caddy is great for travel or use at the gym. Best of all, he will regularly be reminded of your thoughtfulness.
BBQ Gift Set
Let’s see — we’ve covered reading, laughing, shaving and showering. What other manly activity does your man engage in? BBQ! This awesome set from manly man Bobbie Flay will make your husband the BBQ King of the neighborhood.
Have you come up with some unique gifts for your man this year? Let’s share them in the comments so we can all be ready to surprise the one we love!
