This week, Peter's giving us the low down on what your man might want for Valentines Day!
Valentine’s Day gift is something that would just add to the overall love and respect that you and your dearest man have for each other. Still, even though it’s the thought that counts, choosing the gift can get really tiresome and unnerving, especially if you want to show just how much you care for him. Something personal and meaningful is definitely the way to go for a Valentine gift, but sometimes it’s really difficult to get it right in practice. So, if you’re stuck for ideas on what to get for your partner this Valentine’s Day, keep on reading.
At first glance at headline, clothes don’t seem to be overly personal and meaningful as a gift. But you can make it so. Don’t stop at basic pieces that your man can buy for himself. Use his personal style the most so that you can get him some really unique garments he would love to own but can’t justify the purchase. Moreover, you can always play with his interest in pop culture and gift him fandom-inspired goods, if that’s something that really floats his boat.
A trip for two
A romantic weekend getaway is definitely a unique and special gift for Valentine’s Day. You can also pick a location that holds important memories for the two of you as a couple. On the other hand, visiting a new place that matches your idea of great vacation will only leave room for more memories. Just make sure to check whether your partner will actually be available for specific weekend before you make the reservations. If there’s no way for you to find this out without ruining the surprise, try your best to leave the dates open.
A special date
This is truly a unique way to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Of course, since it is a planned date, you need to inform your boyfriend or husband about it in advance. Still, keep all the activities you have in store a secret from him. For example, you can surprise him with a whole day in an amusement park, scenic walks along the coastline or a spa treatment. If you opt for something nourishing and helpful, you can get him a relaxing treatment like a facial in Bondi Beach. Of course, you can enjoy in this rejuvenating pastime together.
His favourite drink
In all honesty, most guys thoroughly enjoy a good beer. So, if you know that your man would really appreciate the opportunity to try something different, you can gift him a special beer pack. In what way it will be special depends on you and your knowledge of his tastes. But, it would be really great if you could surprise him with a completely new beer brand that’s really difficult to taste in your usual pubs and restaurants. You can easily find these specialties online, and beer is definitely not the only option liquor-wise.
Contrary to the popular belief, men can be quite emotional and sensitive and very appreciative of your memories together. You know your man the best and if you see the gentle soul behind his manly appearance, you can always surprise him with a unique keepsake that features your love. Special journals or photo books with romantic quotes and messages that you sent each other can make for quite a lovely and extraordinary gift, perfect for Valentine’s Day.
This is a day that celebrates love, so don’t feel too pressured about the gift itself. As long as you put all your feelings and care into this special moment, you’ll find it a lot easier to express your thoughts and just how much he means to you. The idea for a gift will then come naturally to you.
