Whether you are in a new relationship, recently married, or have been married for many years, buying your significant other a Valentine’s Day gift can be a tricky thing. This year, Americans are expected to spend $19.7 billion on Valentine’s Day, according to the National Retail Federation. A large percentage of that 19.7 billion is spent on the usual – flowers, candies and chocolate. Another on trend idea is gifting “an experience.” Although many people say they want an experience on Valentine’s Day, more than half opt to stay in. My male colleague scoured the web and came up with 5 unique gifts that men will really enjoy.
For The Business Man
If your man isn’t really the briefcase carrying kind of guy, then getting him a stylish contemporary backpack is perfect for him. I think this will be great because it’s made of quality leather that is waterproof. My favorite feature? This USB charging bag is not only the perfect size of all of his gadgets, it has an earphone jack as well. He can listen to his favorite music by plugging his earphones straight into the bag.
For The Gaming Guy
The best Valentine’s Day gift for the guy who loves games? Get your man the updated version of the Classic Sega Genesis game console. This wireless version of the original Sega Genesis comes with two controllers and 85 preloaded games. Even better? Offer to play it with him this Valentine’s Day. Even if gaming isn’t your thing, he will appreciate the gesture and any opportunity to do a new activity together is an opportunity to bond and connect.
For The Foodie
If you want to stick to the basics and your guy has a sweet tooth. Surprise him on Valentine’s Day with these delicious Goo Goo Cluster Supremes. Look for a new restaurant to try together. If you are anything like me, you like to avoid the extra crowds on Valentine’s Day. You can present him with a gift card or a card describing your next date night (on you) to try the newest local restaurant.
For The Man Who Likes To Host
If your partner loves having his buddies over or enjoys mixing a drink in the evenings, up his bartending game by gifting him this classy, yet manly Bartender Set. It is the perfect gift for the man that likes to host – it’s stylish and the possibilities of fun drinks he can whip up are endless. Trust me, his buddies will be jealous.
For The Guy Who Likes To Travel
Does your man have a travel bug? Does he like to go on adventures around the country or even around the world? Get your husband the best Valentines gift by purchasing him a unique Scratch Off Map. There are different options available for both United States maps and World maps. Want to step it up a notch? Book a fun romantic getaway for the two of you to a new place he can scratch off.
Bold Bonus Idea
Valentine’s Day is a great time to spice things up in the bedroom. Without putting all the pressure on yourself, purchase some matching underwear for you and your man. It is a creative way to light the spark in a lighthearted and fun way. The best part is that you can take some of the pressure off trying to find the perfect lingerie. Have fun!
