Let’s be honest. Valentine’s Day has always been more of a woman’s holiday than a man’s. According to a recent survey, women value Valentine’s Day almost three times more than men. Though most men enjoy pampering their wives on that day, they admit it’s more for the woman than them.
This Valentine’s Day, turn that around by giving your man what he really wants. No matter your price range, take this opportunity to pamper your husband with something he’ll love to hopefully change his mind about the significance of the holiday.
Who says the gift needs to be expensive in order for it to be meaningful? You might find that the best gift for your man won’t cost you a thing.
Order a Pizza
Don’t underestimate the power of delivery and a good cuddle. Your man probably wouldn’t mind a simple night in with you for once after years of pampering you on this night. For next to nothing, you can roll dinner and the perfect gift into one.
Breakfast in Bed
This gesture is usually instigated by the man, so it would be perfect to turn the tables and offer him breakfast in bed instead. Sneak out of bed early (be very careful and quiet, and don’t turn on any lights, or you’ll wake him up!) and make some heart shaped pancakes, sausage, eggs, bacon, and hash browns. If orange juice is his thing, squeeze it fresh. If not, consider chocolate milk with a straw. Make it a man’s meal.
In combination with one of the cheap ideas above, consider these other affordable gift ideas.
Not every guy may seem like a sweater guy, but you may be surprised. If he’s a businessman, a formal sweater would be an excellent gift. If he’s not much for formal wear, get him a nice looking hoodie or zip up sweater.
Restaurant Gift Cards
A man’s gotta eat right? And most men love to. Get a gift card for your man’s favorite restaurant. The best part is, this will fit right into your budget because you can spend as much as you want.
What guy doesn't like to relax with a good video game every now and then? Get him a new one for your Valentine’s Day gift. Pay attention to his interests before you buy one. If he’s a Madden guy, consider getting the newest edition. If he’s more guns and ammo, consider Call of Duty.
A Little Pricey
For those with a little more pocket change, consider the following ideas.
Tickets to Something
Get him tickets to something he loves, whether it’s a concert or a sporting event. If you can afford it, splurge for some really good seats. Don’t forget to get one for yourself. He’ll enjoy it even more with your company.
Pay for a subscription to a magazine, video website, or a gym. It will be the gift that keeps on giving all year long.
Let him experience something he’s wanted to learn with a class. He might like a cooking class, karate, golf, or even pottery or dancing. You can get classes for a lot of things, and he might even find something he’s passionate about.
Powder Coat His Auto Wheels
If he’s like most guys, he loves his car. Give him a certificate for a service to powder coat his auto wheels. He’ll appreciate the fact that you gave him a certificate for a powder coating rather than a painting. For more information about this service, click here.
Puttin’ On the Ritz
If money isn’t a problem, any one of these delightful gifts is sure to make your man smile.
Men like to relax right? It’s in their nature, and it often means watching the television, which make the TiVo Roamio an excellent choice of gifts. With this handy device, they can record all the shows they had to miss while attending to other obligations, as well as easily access Netflix, Amazon Video, YouTube, Hulu, and more.
Newest Tech Gadgets
Most men love technology, and new gadgets come out every day. This gift is a great option for you simply because you’ll be able to find something he doesn’t already have but will still love. This year, consider a Microsoft Surface tablet, a new smartphone, or an upgrade of a TV.
Signed Sports Memorabilia
What sports enthusiast wouldn’t give anything to have something signed from his favorite sports star. Shell out some extra cash for a really special gift for the man who does so much for you.
By giving your man one of these great gifts, you might just change his mind about the significance of Valentine’s Day.
