If you have a special man in your life, or if you are looking to go on a date this Valentines Day, you have to start thinking about what kind of gift you are going to purchase. Sure, tradition tells you that women aren’t supposed to get the guy something, but it can actually mean so much if you do. The truth of the matter is that it can be difficult to find a Valentines Day gift for him, so you may need a guide.
Here is how to find the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for him.
Think about his hobbies and special interests.
There is a good chance that he won’t necessarily appreciate Valentine’s Day candies. However, if he is a lover of golf, you may want to get him a nice set of golf clubs. If he is really into baseball or basketball, you may want to get him courtside or dugout seats – or maybe even a season pass.
Think about how long you have been with him.
If you have only been with him for a few weeks, you may not want to get him clothing. Moreover, you don’t want to get him anything too expensive, because that may seem desperate. Ideally, you want to get him something small, but meaningful without seeming like you picked up the gift last minute. For instance, a vintage pair of cufflinks could be incredibly meaningful without looking like you went overboard.
Think about your budget – you could actually spend too much if you aren’t careful.
Even if you just stick with Valentine’s Day greeting cards, you are on the right path, because greeting cards are affordable, but able to say a lot. If you have a big budget, you may be able to go all out. However, you don’t need to spend a fortune to have a great time and impress your date.
Think about what he may have told you he needed.
You could get that special man in your life clothing for Valentines Day, especially if he needs a new tie or some other accessories. When it comes to jewelry for Valentines Day, you could get him a pair of cuff links. The truth of the matter is that all guys like to dress up and feel dapper.
Think about taking him out to dinner instead of the other way around.
Sure, you may be messing with the entire axis of the way things are done on Valentines Day, but if you are looking for a really meaningful Valentines Day gift for him, you may be surprised by how surprised he is when you pick up the check. In the end, he can always get dessert – that is if you aren’t rushing back home or to the hotel.
Think about some of his wildest fantasies.
Valentines Day is the perfect time to make some of his fantasies come true. Whatever those fantasies may be, you want to think of a way to surprise him. Of course, after your dinner date, you will head home or back to the hotel to get romantic. This can be a great Valentines Day gift for him, because if he has had a fantasy for a long time and you fulfill it, he will remember the moment forever. Even if its not exactly your fantasy, you may want to try going the extra mile and see what happens. What you will probably realize is that you are actually going to have a lot of fun too.
Think about making a spectacle when giving him the Valentine’s Day gift.
Even if you are giving Valentines Day candies, you want to make it an experience. For instance, instead of just surprising him, you may want to wear something that will get him excited. Instead of just saying, “Here’s your gift,” you may want to make it a treasure hunt. You could even turn your date into a treasure hunt and make it a competition. If you and your special someone are the competitive type that likes to play sports, this can be a great way to create one of the most memorable Valentines Day nights.
Think about reading the reviews before you get him the gift.
If you don’t read the reviews, you could run the risk of getting the wrong gift or something that falls apart after a single day. When purchasing a Valentines Day gift, you want to make sure that it will stand the test of time. You may want to save money by going with something affordable, but it will be pretty embarrassing when that gift falls apart. When reading the reviews, make sure that you look at actual comments, made by real customers. Some of the reviews may be made by bots, which may make the product appear to be made of quality materials, but it may not be.
Think about getting him a Valentines Day gift that he will use on a daily basis.
If you get him something he can’t use, it may sit in a drawer. For instance, you could get him something cute or kitschy, but guys don’t care about cute and kitschy – they want something that is usable. For instance, you want to give him something like a tie or a tie clip – something that will improve his life. Not only will this impress him and not only will you be improving his life, but also every time his wears the tie or cufflinks, he will be thinking of you, which is a win-win situation.
Think about mixing it up or giving him a package of gifts.
Many people give their man one gift – maybe two. However, if you really want to impress him this Valentines Day, you may want to think about giving a care package mixed with different gifts. When it comes down to it, the main benefit of getting him a mix of gifts is that there will at least be one thing he will love. In the end, that’s the only thing that matters – that he finds one thing he really cherishes.
