For some people, Valentine’s Day is overrated. They believe that people should show their love and appreciation for each other every day. While I agree to a certain extent, I think having one day set aside every year to do something special for each other is a good idea. I do understand that this could be a lot of pressure though, especially for men. Trying to figure out the perfect or most romantic way to shower your woman with love is not an easy feat. Although, some of the pressure can be taken off of men if women feel equally invested in Valentine’s Day.
Personally, I believe that by both partners equally investing in showering each other with love, it would make Valentine’s Day less stressful and contrived. One way that I do this is by alternating years with my spouse to make Valentine’s Day plans. One year he plans it and the next year I plan it. Another thing that I do is buy him a gift as well. Buying gifts for men can be difficult because the holiday is more geared toward women but below you will find some gifts that worked for me in the past.
Designer underwear– One thing that a man always needs is new underwear. So why not spice up their underwear collection with high quality underwear. They will thank you every time they wear it.
Personalized Robe– Robes are a great gift because they are practical and cool. Personalizing the robe with your man’s initials, name, or nickname increases the value of what could otherwise be a simple gift.
Make a basket– If you are feeling creative, you can make a basket full of your man’s favorite things. Some things that you can include are alcohol, snacks, a watch, and movie passes.
Sneakers– You cannot go wrong with a new pair of sneakers.
Tickets to an event– Buying tickets to a sporting event, concert, or any other type of an event is a great idea for two reasons. It is an investment in a future date night or you can let him go to the event with his friend. Allowing him to attend the event with one of his friends will earn you major score points and it gives you a night to yourself.
Leave me a comment to let me know if any of these ideas win your man over.
