Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas
Finding it difficult to get a gift for your man this Valentine’s Day? You are not alone. After all, romance means different things for him and her. What you feel is extremely romantic may not be stirring him as much as you hope it would.
But don’t fret. Think about what makes your man feel loved and let that guide your choice. Choose something that fits his personality and you are well on your way to finding a present that he’ll love. Here’s more help – top 10 ideas that will make him feel touched.
Please your man through his stomach – it’s, after all, a tried and tested formula. Cook a meal of his favourite dishes; enhance the ambience with romantic, soothing music and pleasant lighting. Even if you’re not a great cook, your effort to make the meal yourself will tug at his heartstrings. Throw in some chocolate and oysters – these foods are believed to have aphrodisiac qualities. Round off the meal with a slow dance or a romantic movie.
Romance your partner with the ultimate home-spa experience this Valentine’s. First, remove all distractions at home to create a soothing environment – get help to look after the baby or pets, unplug the phones and turn off your hand phones. Light some candles and play soothing music to create a soothing setting. You can start with a luxurious bubble bath, followed by a relaxing massage with some scented oil or lotion. Ask your partner how he’s feeling and where he’d like to be massaged. After a long day’s work, this Valentine gift is bound to make him feel immensely pampered.
Create a personalized scrapbook containing photos and notes of your journey together. This will include milestones, such as the first trip, the first Christmas, meeting the parents, wedding photos and so on. Pen in little notes, such as your thoughts and feelings at each event, your love vows and meaningful romantic quotes. It’s a simple gift, but priceless. This is one Valentine’s gift that can be kept for years and years. Who knows, one day, you’ll be sharing it with your grandchildren!
A man’s hobby is a good guide for gift ideas. Whether he’s into music or technology or fishing, get products related to his pastime and place them in a heart-shaped box. Sprinkle in a few chocolates and love notes to create a loving, romantic touch.
What can be more romantic than a getaway for just the two of you? Surprise your man with a ticket to a honeymoon-like experience. Use popular travel websites such as Kayak, Hotwire and Expedia to find air tickets and accommodation that won’t burn a hole in your pockets. Oh, and pack in some irresistible lingerie to make your holiday sizzle all night long.
Make your partner’s wishes come true this Valentine’s. Make your personalized coupon book, with free passes for massages, intimacy and the like – anything that suits his fancy. Include forgiveness for his foibles, like ‘Ï won’t get angry if you leave the dirty dishes around for a meal’. Allow your man to use these coupons regularly and you’d have given him a very prolonged Valentine’s experience.
Express your timeless love for your partner with a poem. Tell him how wonderful he is and how much you cherish having him around. Every man loves feeling appreciated, and your man is likely to be won over by your work of love. Worried that you lack literary genius? Fret not. Your partner will all the more appreciate your effort for it.
Get some red paper and cut out 365 pieces of heart shapes. Write a loving message on each, be it a romantic saying, your feelings for your partner, or a happy memory. Place the hearts in an attractive envelope or jar, and ask your man to take one out a day. This will warm his heart throughout the year even after the fervor over Valentine’s Day has passed.
Make your very own video pronouncing your love for your man, using a digital camera or camcorder. Film the places you both love to hang out, photos and souvenirs from previous trips, past presents and any happy memories that you can capture on video. Narrate the video by talking about what makes him a special partner and what you love about him. Watch the video on Valentine’s night while both of you are enjoying your dinner.
Surprise your man with an experience of a lifetime. Present him with an all-paid flying lesson, skydiving, helicopter sightseeing trip or anything else that will set his adrenaline pumping and heart racing. Ideal for giving him a high and breaking the routine of everyday life!
