Not sure what to get your guy this Valentine’s Day? You’ve come to the right place. We narrowed down the top 8 gift ideas for 2019—any man is guaranteed to love at least one of these options. You’re about to win best wife/girlfriend/person this year…
1. A smart watch
What man doesn’t love a nice watch? It’s a safe gift choice—not to mention stylish. The main thing you need to decide is whether the look or the features matter more to your guy. There are great options from both Apple and Android, as well as hybrid smartwatches, and designs from well-known brands like Armani and Fossil.
2. A couple’s massage
You can’t go wrong with a romantic spa day. It’s a stress-free and calorie-free way to spend good quality time together. Start off with matching massages side by side, and continue the pampering into the hot tub and saunas. Who knows, you might even talk your man into a mani/pedi.
Surveys have proven that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. Whether you decide to treat him to a lazy breakfast in bed or a candlelit home-cooked dinner, he’s bound to feel the love. If you opt for breakfast, make him heart-shaped eggs, heart-shaped bacon, or anything heart-shaped for that matter. If you prefer a romantic dinner, a nice steak or fish paired with a good red wine is a classic choice.
Poetess Elizabeth Browning wrote famously, “How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.” There is something deeply touching about listing all the things you love about someone (especially 52 things). Many websites offer step-by-step instructions on how to create your own custom deck with some scissors and glue. The tricky part might be coming up with 52 ideas!
5. Engraved leather
Personalized gifts with his name will be appreciated and used for years. Pick out a nice leather item such as a wallet, journal, toiletry bag, or bracelet. Then think about what you want to engrave: his name, both of your names, or something meaningful to the two of you such as a special date or phrase. Whenever he looks at it, he’ll think of you.
6. A fun date
Surprise your man with a voucher for an out-of-the-ordinary date. It could be something adventurous that he’s always wanted to do, like indoor skydiving. Or something interesting you’ve never done before, such as a wine tasting or brewery tour. If he’s a sports nut you could snag tickets to a game he’s been wanting to go to, or finally agree to join him on the golf course.
You’ll have plenty of opportunities to toast each other with a nicely stocked bar cart for the home. If he already has one, invest in a high-end bottle of scotch, whisky or wine that he would appreciate. When it comes to spirited spirit-lovers, there’s no shortage of alcohol accessories you can add to his collection.
8. A slideshow, collage or card!
Last but not least, a thoughtful slideshow, collage or card of your best moments together might make him smile more than anything you can buy. Especially if your guy doesn’t like a lot of “stuff” (or is the type of dude who already has everything) something sentimental like a slideshow or collage is the perfect gift for Valentine’s Day. It’s easy—and free—to create one online in minutes. Whatever you do, don’t forget to send or print a card with your gift!
