What should I get my husband for Valentine's Day?

    I know that Valentine's Day is over a month away, but I have no idea what  I can get my husband for Valentine's Day.  Can anyone think of a good gift that is useful but not that expensive? My budget is to not go over $50. Thanks.

      Well, without knowing your husband and his activities, it would be hard, riaha. However, useful items are always welcome to a husband who works around the house or on the cars and such, and even the yard work.  What has he wished he had for those types of chores?  If there is an item, then do a Google on it..  That is the type of gifts I like, anyway, lol.

        Well, he likes music, movies, food, alcohol, etc... he also likes watches (I have given him 2 watches since I have known him).  So I'm not sure what to get him.

    Go out on a nice dinner date and then when you get home, be his dessert but make sure you build the excitement during the dinner. Take total control of the intimate act too. That is every guy's fantasy. Oh well, most every guy.

      I'm pretty sure most husbands would prefer that to a gift he doesn't really need or want.

      Why has Valentine's Day become all about gifts anyway? The only gift I've ever bought for my husband on Valentine's is lingerie.

    I saw some duct tape roses - "flowers for men" - that I thought were unique.  Men tend to prefer the practical over the sentimental, so things he can use, like a coffee mug (with hearts on it) and things along those lines.

    valentine t-shirt? what do you think? with your own photo or name on it. it's special and not expensive. I have a collection of those kind of logo in my hub, maybe bring you some inspiration.

      Hmm... don't you think that's a little narcissistic?  I am not sure I want him wearing a t-shirt around school or work with my picture on it?  Maybe on a mug or card but not on a t-shirt. Thanks though.

          Thanks. I got him a couple of books he mentioned that he wanted to read, some pears he likes from Harry and David and a card.

    How about a picnic in the living room with candles and soft music. Make him steak with pink mash potatoes, chocolate dipped strawberries and pink champagne. Then run a bubble bath and give him a massage in the tub. Don't forget to bring the candles. smile
