Happy Friday Folks! Hope everyone had a great week and is looking forward to a better weekend!
We had a fantastic week here since our Philadelphia Eagles won the Superbowl on Sunday night. My hubby even took our stepdaughter to the parade on Wednesday and said it was one of the best experiences of his life. However, admitted that if I went I probably would have been miserable. No bathrooms & huge rowdy crowds. Definitely not ideal in my third trimester. It made me sad that I had to miss, but was rest assured knowing I was warm and safe watching from the confines of my living room. 🙂
So I’m going to just get right down to it. Valentines Day gift giving for your dude can be a dud sometimes right? Let’s face it. They aren’t usually the type to throw hints your way or even really care about receiving gifts on this day for that matter. At least from my experience anyone I’ve ever dated never really expected anything on V-Day. My husband certainly does not and could really care less about the holiday. It’s typically a holiday that is reserved for the ladies, but why should we only consider it a female holiday? The good men in our life deserve a thoughtful gift on this special day too!
I took to rounding a Valentines gift giving guide for your significant other or ANY male in your life for that matter. I tried to pick some items that would work for any stage of your relationship and will not break the bank.
- Harry Winston Winter Set – $30
This particular shaving set has gotten rave reviews and is everything a guy needs for a comfortable shave. It includes a metallic blue Winston handle, foaming shave gel, travel blade cover, and 3 blades with a 4.8 star rating. It is the perfect gift to give for your guy that doesn’t care to spend the extra $$ and values a quality shave.
2. Rapid Beard – For your Bearded Burly Men – $35
We can’t leave the bearded hunnies out can we? This product made from natural, pure, and organic ingredients is the perfect all in one needed for beard & mustache grooming. It works on ALL types of hair and is ideal for softening and styling. With 100% natural and organic styling ingredients your guy will enjoy healthier beard growth without any additives or unwanted scents. A 100% Boar Bristle Beard Brush that help distribute oil and improve hair texture. Ideal for all hair types and to soften and style. Stainless steel extra sharp scissors for grooming, trimming, and shaping. And a wooden beard comb to get through those tangles. It’s on Amazon’s list of top sellers and my bearded dudes have raved about it!
3. Tickets to their Favorite Sporting Event or Concert
Our special guys all have a specific passion right? This goes without saying… Why not get them some tickets to enjoy an evening of their favorite hobby/pastime live? Depending on what your guy likes will determine your price point on this particular gift, but don’t worry about getting the most expensive show or event for them. I’m sure they will be appreciative of local events going on in your area as well.
4. Herschel Supply Co. Roy RFID Bi-fold Wallet – $35
A well crafted and constructed wallet with RFID shielding makes this smart wallet the perfect choice. Plus most guys I know hate having bulky large items in their pockets.
5. Six Pack Greeting Card
For the men that LOVE beer, I thought this was a clever and fun way to send them their favorite 6 pack or mix and match with their favorite craft assortments. You can make this a DIY or purchase the supplies from Amazon.com. And it doesn’t have to only be on Valentines Day! This can be given for ANY occasion and listed are a ton of different options to choose from!
6. DIY Coupon Book $0-$10
For those ladies willing to give their significant other a list of naughty happenings in the bedroom they may redeem OR for a friend to decide which nice deeds can be done for a special person in their life. Just hit up your local craft store and purchase some redeemable coupons or you can add your own little flair and make them from scratch. Make a coupon for each day of the week, store them in a jar, and have them pick and choose one on any given day. Get as creative or sexy as you want! They will LOVE it and you will not have to spend any more than $10 if desired!
7. Home Cooked Meal for Two $0-$25
This is another good one for those just in the beginning stages of their relationship or for those that want to remain budget conscious. A simple and well thought out meal for two is a great way to spend your holiday indoors. Spruce it up with candles, flower petals, or whatever you feel will set the mood. After a long day at work your special guy with appreciate a relaxing home cooked meal.
8. Comfy Calvin’s $28
If you’re comfortable with your guy friend or looking to get your significant other something comfortable down under I would definitely recommend some Calvin Briefs or Boxers, whichever your guy prefers. They are literally the softest and feel barely there. Macy’s as a 3 + 1 pk on sale right now for 20.99 but you can find them anywhere! I typically hit up a Home Goods or TJ Maxx and find them for half the price!
9. Sorel Falcon Ridge Slippers $44-$50
These slippers were rated high for best indoor footwear. I know my husband loves lounging around in his slippers and these are top rated in quality and comfort. Upper Suede with wool lined insoles these slippers are super soft, warm, and durable. Sorel tend to run a bit small so make sure you go up a size or two for these.
10. Virtual Reality Headset – $99-$129
O.k., so this will be the most expensive item on this list, but it is SO worth it. We recently purchased one of these for my stepdaughter and my husband uses it WAY more than she does. It hooks up right to your smart phone and you can download a ton of virtual reality videos from the app it comes with and or use You Tube. We have ridden on roller coasters, walked through haunted houses, and played some pretty immersive 3D games. We have the Virtual Reality One Plus and it is so much fun! You do not need to make any mechanical lens adjustments and it can be worn with eyeglasses. This is definitely a really fun gift for all your techie/non-tech men in your life!
Well that’s the round-up! I hope you got some inspiration from this post and if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me directly!
Love & Light!
