Joyful Giving: Ideas

Valentine’s Day- Gifts For Guys


So your boyfriend doesn’t like getting all of the red and pink items from the Target Valentine’s Day aisle that somehow all seem to be covered in glitter?  Who knew!

Valentine’s Day may not be a traditionally manly holiday, but I’m confident you can find a way to show all of the men in your life how loved they are.

Below are a few of my favorite ideas:

Keep It Traditional– Cologne has always been a very popular Valentine’s Day gift. Maison Martin Margiela’s’Replica’ Jazz Club Scent is perfect for the guy who likes to pretend he is as smooth as Frank Sinatra. This scent evokes the memory of a hidden jazz club with tobacco and vanilla notes. I love the travel size option as well because it is perfect for keeping in a briefcase, gym bag or the car.

Make Him Something Sweet– The best way to his heart is still through his stomach! I recommend these peanut butter cookie bars. I have yet to make them for anyone who could resist them!

Send Him Something Fun– Traditionally guys don’t get super excited about flower deliveries, but what if a giant red heart filled with jerky or a personalized set of whiskey glasses were delivered to him at the office? Check out Man Crates for all kinds of deliveries he will love.  Special shout out to these guys because they will ship to military bases all over the world.  They did an awesome job getting my brother his Christmas gift!

Enjoy a Cozy Evening In– Skip the crowded restaurants and stay in to cook dinner together while watching your favorite movie.  You could even get him a cute cocktail kit that he can try out while y’all cook dinner.  This book is full of awesome date night in ideas and recipes to help get you started!

Plan an Afternoon for You to Join Him for His Favorite Activity– What is the one activity that he usually saves to do with his buddies?  Plan an afternoon for the two of you to try it together! Get adventurous ladies and join your man for a day of golf, skeet shooting, crossfit WOD, beer tasting, ComicCon or whatever his latest hobby is.  I’m sure it will be a great memory for you too!

I hope he knows how lucky he is to have you in his life!

With Love, From Me To You
