Valentine’s Day has always been a bit of a mystery to me. In middle school and beginning of high school, I was always heartbroken that I was all alone on the holiday of love. Looking back, I realize I was never actually alone. I didn’t have a “boyfriend”, sure, but I had my friends and family and that should have been enough. Chris and I have celebrated more Valentine’s Day together now than I care to count, but we always like to keep it low-key when it comes to the gift giving. We prefer to give each other our time than a material item that we could have purchased ourselves (last year we had a nice dinner together then met up with friends at The Franklin Park Conservatory). There’s nothing wrong with giving someone that perfect something, though, and I created a Valentine’s Day gift guide for him below to help you brainstorm.
I’ve always found that purchasing gifts for men to be more difficult than women. Really it just comes down to trying to figure out what it is that makes him happy. Some guys like to golf, some like to fish, some like to grill, and heck, some like to shop. If you find that thing that sets him apart from other guys, you can find a gift that he will love. I prefer to buy things that he wouldn’t necessarily buy himself, even if it’s something silly and inexpensive. Those are usually the best gifts, especially for a holiday like Valentine’s Day. On my Valentine’s Day Gift Guide for him, find some local and unique items.
