Manly-Type Valentine’s Gifts
Every year for Valentines Day, I panic because I have no idea what to get my husband. I don’t want to get run-of-the-mill things, and he just doesn’t appreciate flowers and chocolates (what is WRONG with him??), so I’m usually stumped and starting to panic around this time of the month.
So this year, when I went window shopping online, I thought, “Hey! Maybe there are others like me that need help too!”. I don’t know why it was such an epiphany for me, but there it is. Here are some of my selections that I need to narrow down for this year, and hopefully they’ll help you too! Thanks to RedEnvelope.com for some great ideas!
For the Entertainer: Beer Mugs. If your guy has poker/game/dart/book club (I just wanted to throw you off with that one) gatherings at the house, then he *may* want to serve beverages in nice beer steins instead of the mismatched glasses that every ex-bachelor has laying around.
For the Techie: Bluetooth Headset. This is something my husband has been begging for. Not that he doesn’t have one, he has two actually, but he wants a new and shiny one. This is the model he’s been eyeballing ever since we saw a guy with it while we were Christmas shopping at the mall. Since then, I have been inundated with reasons why this one is better than the other two…
For the Geek: They’re Star Wars cuff links. I think they speak for themselves.
For the Adventurer: Handheld GPS. Is your guy a hiker or backpacker? Does he like to explore new places? Does he get lost in a closet with one door? This may just be the perfect gift for him! It’s small and non-intrusive, so he can just pretend he knows exactly where he’s going without letting on he has electronic help.
For the Thinker: The Story of Him. Some men love to talk about themselves and offer up their opinion. No, really, it’s true! If you have a talker in your life, this may just be perfect. He can record all about himself in this nifty little book, and leave it in his will so that future generations will know his greatness.
For the Romantic: Family Story Wall Art.Yes, there are some men who are romantic, and something like this would definitely get his heart thumping with love for you. It can have a place of honor right over his desk at work, so that he can proclaim to all and sundry his undying love for you and your family.
