Every year my hubby tells me that Valentines Day “is for girls” and not to worry about finding him the perfect present… and then he goes out and does something spectacular! It would be easy to sit back and say “he’s not expecting anything, So I’m not going to worry!” but how much fun would that be?
None. Nope, no fun at all!
If you’re anything like me you want to see that look of excitement on his face that says “I actually love this!” and better yet… “I’ll actually use this!”
I mean isn’t that the goal? To figure out what your man really wants for Valentines Day?
This year I’m determined to find the perfect gift for the hubster… so of course I’m sharing my ideas with y’all!
Psssst…. if you looking for other gift ideas my girls have you covered! Once you’re done shopping for the hubster don’t forget everyone else!
If your man is a serious music lover he will adore these headphones! My hubby has been begging for a pair for the past 3 years… and this Christmas I finally gave in and bought him a pair.
He loves them.
NFL Office Chair!
Your man works hard and he comes home every night with a hurting back… oh wait. That’s my man! He tries his best to hide it but that hand-me down-save-a-little-cash-use-it-until-it-dies office chair his Dad gave him is killing his back.
It’s time for a new chair… one that will help his posture and his disposition! Since he won’t buy himself something super cushy it makes the perfect gift! Go the extra mile and snap up one with his favorite team logo… my hubby has been a Broncos fan since he could talk so this Broncos Chair is perfect!
Your guy isn’t the keeper of the memories… let’s face it he barely sits still for photos! While he may not love taking the photos he definitely loves the memories… try putting together a special keepsake just for him.
Need ideas? Maybe you have a couple (hundred photos) from a recent vacation… or you never got around to saving those engagement photos! While he might not take the time to craft his own scrapbook he’ll love looking through the memories with you! Trust me ladies… this is one gift he won’t be buying himself!
Gift Card to His Favorite Restaurant
If your man is anything like mine he spends the majority of his time trying to make you happy! My hubby loves to take me to my favorite restaurant (Red Lobster) whenever we get the chance… and I love him for it… but it means we never get to eat his favorite foods!
Why not surprise him with a gift card to his favorite place? It’s a way to say “I see how hard you’re trying and this gift card is a promise that we’ll eat at your favorite place… at least once this year!” 😉
Remember that office chair? Well if your hubby is still rocking the back pain try a heated massage cushion… this baby will help keep stress and pain away! I bought one 8 years ago that I still love to this very day… and the hubby tries his hardest to steal it away from me! Maybe this Valentines Day it’s time to get him his own!
The Newest Game
Alright so he’s not the sentimental type… that’s alright we love gamers too! One of my favorite TV moments is when Sheldon and Amy celebrate a very special Valentines Day by staying in and watching a movie marathon… because Amy knows that is Sheldon’s absolute favorite thing to do!
It’s not about a big fancy expensive gift it’s about how well you know your guy… and if the hints my guy has been dropping are any indication he is dying to get his hands on this new Madden 16 game! I might just achieve the title of best wife ever if I wrap up this bad boy for V-Day! What has your hubby been dying to buy himself… remember it doesn’t have to be fancy just show that you listen to him and care about the things he cares about!
Sweet Love Notes
Alright y’all you’ll have to be a little creative on this one! For his birthday I made my hubby a deck of cards that contained 52 reasons why I loved him…. and he absolutely loved it! How many unspoken things go by in a day? Write them down and post it up!
Leave your hunny little notes anywhere you can think of: the fridge, his left shoe, the console in his car, his sunglasses case… the bathroom mirror! Use a whole stack of post its… he’ll be finding adorable little reasons why you love him all day!
