5 Valentine’s Day gifts you can get for your man



5 Valentine's Day gifts you can get for your man

Valentine’s Day is coming up. So let’s take a look at how you can put a BIG smile on his face this February.

Guys are not always easy to buy for. We could write them the most eloquent love poetry and their reaction would surprise us. It’s either going to melt their heart, or they’ll think that we’re being totally ridiculous.

Committing a gift gaffe on Valentine’s Day is easy. Perhaps you’ve already done it. To make sure it doesn’t happen (again), let’s take a look at five Valentine’s Day surprises to melt his heart.

1) Something From His Amazon WishList: If your partner has an Amazon account, he’ll have an Amazon wish list.

And if your partner loves you and trusts you not to max out his credit card, he’s probably already shared his Amazon account with you. When he isn’t looking, deftly have a peruse of his wish list.

2) Cute Briefs: Guys need briefs. They don’t necessarily love briefs, but they need them. The trouble with guys when it comes to buying something they need as opposed to something they actually want is that they generally just don’t bother.

3) Beard Trimming Kit: Has your partner got a beard? If so, is he having trouble keeping it all neat and tidy? If so, is he getting a bit frustrated by it and starting to wish beards had never come back in fashion? If personal grooming is not something your man is a master of, consider surprising him with a beard trimming kit so that he evolves from a scruffy caveman into the perfect gentleman.

4) Sports Tickets: Is your boy a big sports fan (come on, which guy isn’t?) Then buying him a pair of sports tickets (one for you, of course) could quickly turn you into The World’s Best Girlfriend EVER. Even if you don’t like sports, it’s well worth surprising him with something that he does happen to love. And it will come as a HUGE surprise to him if you’ve been hating on sports ever since you two got together.

5) A Book: Is a book romantic? It totally could be. Smart is hot. If your man is a reader who loves to expand his mind, buying him a brand spanking new book to his collection could be the perfect way to melt his heart this February. If he’s into politics, buying him George Orwell’s 1984, which recently shot back into the bestsellers list, could be a very timely gift indeed.

    Valentine is a useless thing to celebrate. The day is evil where people do evil things. So many lives would be battered and chattered that day especially young ladies as pregnancy will flow.

      You must be a sadist and I’m not sure you have a girlfriend, you can’t even have any, that’s why you cannot appreciate love. My fiance, a man like you made me like Valentine’s day, because he’s always mind-blowing and exceptional.

    It’s unfortunate all these gifts itemized up there cannot move me an inch. I’m an African man, a typical one for that matter, to get me through gifts is almost impossible. Future girlfriend/fiancee/wife, if you’re reading this, please take note.

      I’m not sure he’s American, from the tenses, I think he’s all these Wanna be ‘American-Igbo boys’. He’s definitely Igbo like you and I.
