Valentines Day: A Guide For Men

Updated on September 12, 2014

Valentines Presents: Gift Ideas For Men To Buy

You love her, she loves you - what more do you need? Well, you really need to tell her that sometimes. And you really need to make an effort on special days like Valentines. Forget her birthday and you'll be fighting the dog for his kennel. Remember Valentines Day with the right present and you'll be a hero. Make it soppy (sorry ladies, men will be men) and she'll love it.

Read on for some ideas for the right Valentines Day gifts for men to buy their woman.

Valentines Gifts Are Easy

Birthdays and Christmas demand effort: you need to know her perfume or her size: you need to learn that she prefers Marks And Spencer to Anne Summers. Valentines Day, though: you can't go wrong by keeping it traditional. Roses, chocolate, balloons, red, red, red.

And most important: The Card Read on ....

More red roses

Flowers As A Valentine Present

Nobody dislikes flowers. Nobody ever received a bunch of roses and sniffed "oh, roses" and threw them at the cat. Buy flowers for her: you don't even have to go to a shop -- you can order online and have them delivered.

One thing though: keep it simple and not too expensive. Tradition works for you here. Huge, complicated bouquets costing hundreds of quid (or dollars, or whatever) are not what's wanted. A dozen red roses with a bit of Gypsy's Breath will hit the spot.

(Apologies, male readers, for the technical term there. It's the white stuff that florists often add.)

Note: florists put their prices up near the date: order early and you'll save the price of a few pints.

One other thing: if you're ordering a delivery you will need to know her address. Interflora's website can't handle "it's the one with the green door round the corner from the King's Head, you know, the one with the great video jukebox".

Order Flowers For Valentines Day - Online for ease

Fresh Flowers - Purple Dendrobium Orchids

If the first few pics haven't given you a clue, concentrate. Flowers are good. Everyone likes flowers. Buy some for her. Now.

 
1800Flowers - Sentimental Surprise - Medium
1800Flowers - Sentimental Surprise - Medium

Yes, more flowers - if you're a little older, the colours here will appeal to your loved one. And even if they don't, at least you tried.

 
Heart Shaped Truffles

Chocolate As A Valentines Present

Assuming your wife or girlfriend isn't diabetic or lactose intolerant: chocolate's another winner. This one's a bit more complicated than flowers but you should be able to cope.

First point: bigger isn't better - a huge bar of Cadbury's milk chocolate is not acceptable, and a tin of Quality Street will see you without kneecaps. No, go for posh. One great name here is Hotel Chocolat. Yes, daft name and there is no "e" at the end but you're ordering online so you don't need to pronounce it.

Google: "online chocolate". Check a few results, think "classy".

Buy a posh box. If they offer a sampler box nice and cheap, resist. You don't have to buy half a ton but there should be enough for her to offer round the workplace.

Milk is usually better than dark, white might be acceptable but spy on her chocolate habits well in advance to make sure.

DOVE Chocolate Valentine's Select Chocolates, 8.13-Ounce Heart Tin
DOVE Chocolate Valentine's Select Chocolates, 8.13-Ounce Heart Tin

Great chocolate and a heart-shaped tin - two in one. Forget the big bar of choc - it's Valentines Day after all - push the boat out a bit,.

 

More Chocolate

Look around Amazon, there's a great range of delicious assortments for that special person on Valentines Day

Perugina Baci Classic Dark Chocolate Hazelnut 28-pc Box
Perugina Baci Classic Dark Chocolate Hazelnut 28-pc Box

Rich Italian chocolates in a classy box. 28 chocs in the box - she might give you one.

 
champagne

Champagne As A Valentines Present

Another sure fire winner, and of course -- you can order online. One bottle is all you need. Unless she's a dipsomaniac and then you can buy a case or one of those big bottles with a name ending in "boam".

Key word here is "champagne". That doesn't include supermarket sparkling plonk. I don't care if you have heard of Asti Spumante, it's not acceptable.

Note here another plus for online shopping - they'll package it nicely - you don't have to stick it in an old carrier bag at the last minute before you shove it into her hands with a muttered "here you are i love you".

A nice touch is to give her a pair of champagne glasses (the tall thin ones known as flutes) with the bottle.

H. Lanvin & Fils BRUT - CUVEE SELECTION
H. Lanvin & Fils BRUT - CUVEE SELECTION

The sellers reckon this is "The nose is fresh, fruity and sweet with notes of plum and raspberry jam." You don't need to know that though - just rest assured that she'll like it.

 

Don't Forget The Champagne Flutes

Champagne tastes so much better when you drink it out of the right glass. You'll feel like James Bond, and she'll feel .. No, I probably shouldn't mention any of the Bond Girls' names ...

Libbey Vina Trumpet Champagne Flute, Set of 6
Libbey Vina Trumpet Champagne Flute, Set of 6

Stylish, modern, sophisticated. You'll be realising by now that beer mugs won't do for champagne so get the credit card out.

 

Jewelry Says "I Love You" - Perfect Valentines Day gift

Most people like jewelry as a gift and it makes a great Valentine's present. Don't go mad on gold and diamonds in large quantities, aim for something pretty and cute.

KATGI Fashion Amethyst Heart Shape Pendant Necklace
KATGI Fashion Amethyst Heart Shape Pendant Necklace

Silver and amethyst: this looks classy, has a heart design and won't break the bank, She'll love it and you get the applause.

 

More Jewelry Ideas

There's plenty of choice in the jewelry range for Valentines Day: a necklace, earrings, bracelets ... Any of the items below should make your beloved happy.

Four Leaf Clover Heart Shaped Swarovski Elements Crystal Rhodium Plated Pendant Necklace - Blue
Four Leaf Clover Heart Shaped Swarovski Elements Crystal Rhodium Plated Pendant Necklace - Blue

Getting a bit classier, and that's always good - Swarovski jewelry is a guaranteed winner on Valentine's Day or any other day, come to think of it.

Something Silly As A Valentines Gift

Dangerous territory here for men, but you might want to extend your reach. That means balloons or fluffy bears, Nothing else. Novelty condoms, t-shirts with hilarious slogans, NO. A useful rule of thumb is "would your mates in the pub be amused?". If the answer is yes, the gift would be wrong. Her loss, of course, and there's always Christmas.

Image: Happy Valentine Foil Balloon

Acceptably silly

Bunches of Love 10" Valentine's Day Teddy Bear Stuffed Animal Gift by Bearington
Bunches of Love 10" Valentine's Day Teddy Bear Stuffed Animal Gift by Bearington

If your loved one is under thirty, get her a teddy bear. All women like teddy bears, unless they're farmers. If she's a farmer, buy her chocolates.

 
bathrobe
bathrobe

DO NOT: Give Her Sexy Underwear

This is the exception to the "if it's red it's good" rule. Sexy underwear is fraught with danger. She might appreciate it (you might even be within 2 inches of the correct bust size) but why risk it? Remember what happened to the last sexy underwear you bought her? No? There you go.

If you ignore this advice and actually make it into a lingerie department, you will soon pick up a garment and not know which way round it goes. At that point, move on.

Ah, the picture - so I can get her a bathrobe then? No. Not even a red one. Reread this page from the top.

Well, if you must - This is dangerous ...

Final warning: buy several sizes too big and you're dead.

Valentine Day Card
Valentine Day Card

The Valentines Day Card

Buy her a warehouse of champagne and a chocolate factory but forget The Card and you're in trouble. But choose wisely.

You know when she drags you into a card shop because she has to get a birthday card for someone whose birthday is months away? And those funny cards you snigger at whilst she's browsing (for hours)? Brilliant, some of them. She'd love one of those, gets on great with the lads in the pub.

No she wouldn't. There's a time and a place (and perhaps an occasion) for fart gags but Valentines Day isn't it. You've read this far, you should have a clue by now: keep it simple, classy, no attempt at humour. You love her. That's all you have to say.

Too Much
Too Much

Don't Buy The Lot

Another rule that works in your favour: you don't need to be ostentatious: don't buy everything. A card plus one present is enough. If you're feeling flush, you can get champagne as well as chocolate but it isn't absolutely necessary.

It is very important to remember that you may still be together in a year's time. Give her champagne and a dozen roses this year but only six roses next year and you're in trouble. Women have very good memories.

Anyone had a great Valentines present? - Or a really bad one? Who gave you the present and is he/she still around?

My wife doesn't really like flowers, and she doesn't really like cards. She'll except and appreciate them but she wont like them. She does like candy, and she does like wine. I believe I may go with those this year.

      Maybe take a stretch one year and don't buy a gift, but do something together. Not dinner, but something you can actually do together (rock climbing, a hike together, etc). Sometimes that means more than all the chocolate in the store.

      I'll bet your Valentine will be very happy this year. You're one of the few men who understands how simple it is to make a woman feel loved and cared for. You're so right about the underwear. Unless you know her exact size and taste it's best to just not do it. Men tend to underestimate the top and overestimate the bottom. Not good.

      Come on, ladies, imagine taking him to a lingerie shop and letting him give his professional opinion on which of the 3 or 4 "outfits" looks best on you. Just don't make him wait for hours - be quick and teasy. Then, gentlemen, you will take the lady to dinner and a couple of drinks, or something you know or suspect she will enjoy (oops! that requires thinking). Just the two of you - anywhere. You can slip her The Card there. And a rose. Remember, don't spoil her from the beginning! Paul says: "Give her champagne and a dozen roses this year and six roses next year and you're in trouble." Trust his fine british common sense.

      A small box of chocolates and/or a small bundle of flowers (doesn't have to be roses - matter of fact my faves are carnations and I'm not counting how many there are). That's what I want - and yes, a card. Hopefully the card will have some sort of inside joke, but it doesn't have to. So yes, nothing complicated, just something to show you care.

      The funny thing is just recently I read a valentine's day article somewhere on the Web where the guy mentions how a girl would totally appreciate lingerie as a gift. I didn't really like the idea of getting a sexy lingerie as a gift for valentine's day, but then again I thought not everyone would feel the same way. You just echoed my thoughts! Great lens!

      My ex husband had the awful idea to get me lingerie once. The problem was that I was a size 6 and he bought me an 18. Bad idea. Bad bad idea.

      The best present I ever got was one that can't be bought. My (current) husband woke me up singing "Good Morning Beautiful" and even though he was absolutely horrible, I wouldn't have traded that wake up call for anything in the world.

      But Sexy Underwear is the best. Bit of a present for the man though admittedly.

      hehe, good ideas! I love getting tech for Valentine's Day. Not a big screen TV or a video console, but my own iPad, laptop, things like that. Not so romantic? Maybe not. A getaway is great, too. I love when he takes me away from it all.

      Crystal ball with a flower inside and "I love you" inscription. Beautiful.
