Best Abilene Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas for Men, Chosen by Men
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and even though the day is primarily a day that guys spend as much money as they can on their lady, guys like to get stuff too. But, it’s not chocolates, silk boxers or a shaving kit we want. So, ladies, take note – this list is the best Valentine’s Day gift ideas for your man, chosen by men.
I know, it sounds a bit strange, but it’s actually pretty cool. In fact, my wife did this for me a few years back. All you do, is make up little coupons like ‘Back Rub’, ‘Pick Any TV Show or Movie’, ‘Dinner of Your Choice’, ‘Controller of the Remote Control for a Day’ – the list goes on. If you choose, you can get a little risque with the coupons as well. Ladies, it’s a fun and cheap way to do, and it’s the gift that keeps on giving. A word of advice,- you might limit the amount of coupons you do. I still have several coupons left from a few years ago, although, my wife has since told me they have expired. Here’s a handy little video that might give you some ideas as well.
A Day of Nothing
My Facebook buddy, Ken Hart suggested this great idea. A day of doing nothing at all but spending time with your loved one. No phones, schedules, kids, or visitors. Just you and your man kicking back and enjoying each other. So, turn the phones and computers off, lock the door and rekindle that romance with a massage, a make out session, or whatever floats your boat. The main thing is to have no distractions – just some one on one love, baby (said in my best Barry White voice).
Home Cooked Dinner
Growing up, my mom always made us a nice home cooked meal every day. But, in this day in age, most households have both the man and woman working full time, so, it’s hard to get home, figure something out for dinner, then cook it every single day. Guys understand this, but it still doesn’t take away the fact that we want a nice home cooked meal from time to time, and Valentine’s Day is the perfect day to get it. We don’t need candles or anything like that. Just a nice home cooked meal, and you to enjoy it with. Thanks to Donald Alessio for this suggestion.
There are few things that are better than getting a good rubbin’, especially from you lady. Whether it’s a full body, or just a simple back massage, you’ll have your man purring like a kitten with this simple gesture. It doesn’t cost much, if anything, to perform this task. Maybe some oils, and some candles to set the mood. Though, if your man is like me, I don’t care about all of that – just the massage will work. If you really want to go all out, invest in a massage table, and you’ll have your man eating out of your hand all year long.
Electronics, Tools and Gadgets
All men love their electronics, tools, and gadgets. Heck, I’d be happy to get any one of those for my birthday, Christmas, or any other gift giving event. Whether you get him that video game or new controller he’s been wanting, an iPad, or a power drill, any kind of gadget, tool, or electronic device will have him dancing around like a little kid at Christmas.
Bottle of Booze
Yes ladies, a bottle of booze will light your man’s face like the fireworks on the Fourth of July. Whether it’s a bottle of Jagermeister, wine, champagne, or 10 year old Scotch, your man will enjoy the thought you put into such an awesome present. And, chances are, he’ll even share it with you.
Favorite Team’s Gear
If your man is in to sports, getting him some new team gear is a no brainer. Maybe get him a grab bag of goodies including t-shirt, hat, beer coaster, or other team memorabilia. Or, in most cases, you can get his favorite team logo engraved on something like a money clip or maybe even his favorite tool.
