Did you realize it is already February?! WOW. January went by in the blink of an eye… I am not sure how I feel about that. Well, since it is February and I can’t do anything about it… let’s talk Valentine’s Day, shall we?
When it comes to Valentine’s Day, my boyfriend and I don’t usually make a big deal of it, and I am 100% OK with that. We would much rather stay home, make dinner together, relax with a drink (or a few) and just spend uninterrupted time together.
However, if you and your significant other are the gift giving type, I have put together a few items for inspiration if you’re struggling to find that perfect gift. Men can be so difficult to shop for sometimes!
I would love if you’d leave a note in the comment section so I can hear your gift ideas and purchases for that special man on Valentine’s Day.
I love monthly subscription boxes and I have signed up for more than I would ever admit to! It is such a nice surprise each month when checking the mail to find something in there other than bills! BirchboxMan has an amazing monthly subscription for men and is jam-packed with all the grooming essentials he doesn’t even know he needs but will be thankful he has! You can choose between a 3 month ($25.50), 6 month ($51.00) or 12 month ($93.50) subscription when signing up as a gift otherwise the regular program is either month to month or 6 months. Use the promo code: LOVE15 at checkout for an additional 15% off your purchase.
For the music man or the party animal, splurge a little and pick him up a Beats By Dre Beats Pill+. I surprised my boyfriend a couple years ago with one for his birthday and we use it all the time! The sound quality is amazing and it holds a charge that lasts all night! We bring it out whenever we have guests over and because it is portable, wireless and sleek it can be kept out of the way also. This little one is worth every penny of the $249.95 and it comes in a wide variety of colors to choose from.
Does your man travel often? Maybe you have a trip coming up together? Or maybe he crashes at your place on the weekends? You don’t really need an excuse to purchase him this bag but I’m just trying to help! The Novel duffel bag by Herschel Supply Co. is both functional and it looks great! You can find them at Nordstrom in either black and tan or navy and tan or directly from Herschel in a wide variety of colors. Did I mention this bag has an under compartment to store his shoes also which is a feature I love?
Shoppers Drug Mart and their Beauty Boutique is a well kept secret of mine when it comes to finding the right gift! They always have something amazing for any occasion and anybody. These fragrance sets come in both men and women options and I have gifted these to a few people over the years and it never fails! For $99.00 it come with 7 amazing brand name designer scents in sample size and a certificate that they can bring into Shoppers to redeem for their favorite in a full size bottle. NOTE: The ladies one comes with 10 instead of 7 and is $85.00 instead of $99.00. My mom bought me one years ago and I have been hooked on this idea ever since! – Thanks mom!
Wood accented watches are everywhere we look right now and for good reason! They are so beautiful and make such a statement, it is hard not to find our eyes fixated on them when you see one. Analog Watch Co. made a gorgeous version of the Marble Classic with a wooden face that nearly every man would be excited to wear. (The black and red models have a marble face on them but the navy is wooden and my favorite) You can pick them up right now at Urban Outfitters for $194.00. By ordering online right now, an automatic discount of $20.00 will be applied at checkout.
Hey Alexa, what makes the best Valentine’s Day gift? The Amazon Echo literally has a cult following now and it seems like every house I go into lately has one sitting there staring right at me! Alexa can control everything from your music, turning on and off the lights and appliances in your home, hands-free calling and text messaging, she can even tell you the weather, the score of the game and live traffic updates! Imagine laying in bed and just asking Alexa to turn the lights on and start the coffeemaker… genius! The Echo can be found in basically any electronic store or online from Amazon and hover around the $100.00 mark.
What are your Valentine’s Day plans?
