Spend some time thinking about your husband and what sort of gift he'd appreciate for Valentine's Day. As long as you keep him in mind, your hunt for the perfect gift will be a success.
Perhaps tickets to see his favorite band would be the perfect gift for your husband. Buy tickets to a home game of his favorite sports team (or better yet, season tickets, if it's financially feasible). Surfing lessons, golf lessons, scuba diving sessions or a chance to drive a real NASCAR vehicle would be great for a man who has a passion for those activities.
Take a wine tasting tour if your husband prides himself on being a wine connoisseur. Pack a picnic lunch and go hiking with him. Surprise him by booking a day cruise or a fishing charter for the two of you. Join your husband in an experience that you know interests him, even if it's not your cup of tea. Knowing that you're willing to take part in his favorite pastime will let him know how much you love him.
For a naughty and romantic evening your husband won't soon forget, purchase little adult novelty board games such as "Lovopoly" or the "Indecent Proposal Game." Love dice or lovers poker games also are available.
Your husband might love breakfast in bed, especially if he finds a little personal coupon book on his breakfast tray. You can purchase a book, print one that you design on the computer or make it by hand. Include certificates for getting out of chores, breakfast in bed, his favorite dinner or a night out with the guys (with no questions asked).
Give him a decorative glass jar with 365 little notes tucked inside. Write them out, or print them from the computer. Use colorful paper in his favorite colors. Write a personal message on each piece of paper so he has a new message to open every day for an entire year. Include things such as "I knew I loved you when..." or "I love the way you..." or any other little tidbit you wish to share with him.
For the golfer, give him a gift certificate for his favorite course or a new set of clubs. New tools might be the best choice if your husband is always fixing or building something. Have a caricature drawn of him doing his favorite thing, such as fishing, bowling or playing basketball or video games. Give him a model of his favorite car in his favorite color with a little vanity plate featuring his name.
Put a personal spin on traditional gifts for men. A new watch, key chain or cuff links that have a hidden locket compartment with your picture in it may be fitting for a traveling businessman. Purchase the biggest bottle of his favorite cologne. Present it by putting it in a teddy bear's arms. Bake him homemade goods such as cookies in humorous, loving or adult-themed shapes. Surprise him by wrapping them in cellophane and dropping them in his lunchbox, briefcase or car before he leaves without him seeing. Write little messages on the cookies to let him know how you feel. Go for a hike and present him with a homemade picnic complete with his favorite bottle of wine. Take him out to eat at the first restaurant he ever took you to.
