There are a number of different routes you can choose to follow – the classic one, looking for a gift that’s more personal or picking a gift that is really unique and will make him go wow. You don’t have to worry though because we’re here to do all that we can to help in your endeavours. With ideas we’ll be sharing and hints and tips that will help you pick a suitable Valentine’s gift for your boyfriend.
Classic Valentine’s gifts for your sweetheart that are tried and tested
Write him a personalised love letter – Handwritten love letters have gone out of fashion nowadays with eCards, Facebook and text messages taking their place for today’s modern couples. However, there is still a place for this old-fashioned method of communication and showing your never ending love. If you write him a letter for his Valentine’s gift he’ll be able to keep it in his wallet, close to his heart and read it whenever he needs some reassurance. If you think that putting your feelings into words is going to be difficult take solace in the fact that there are lots of online sites you can borrow your words from. You might even want to use a classic poem written by a famous poet.
Put your apron on and cook him a meal to remember – The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach don’t you know? Keep it simple by baking him a cake, cookies or biscuits or go all out and create a five course gourmet dinner. If he’s got a particular favourite try and include it in your menu. If not there are some traditional Valentine’s delights you can impress with such as strawberries dipped in chocolate, shortbread hearts, chocolate brownies or a chocolate souffle. If meat is more his thing then buy the choicest cuts and cook up a storm.
A playlist of his favourite tunes – If you’re worried about the cost this could be an inexpensive Valentine’s gift for your boyfriend. If there are some tunes that hold a special meaning, such as the tune you danced to when you first met, make sure you include it along with his favourite tracks. You can burn the tracks onto a CD or create a playlist with an online music subscription service. Whichever suits your budget.
A gift basket full of his favourites will be appreciated – If you’re a little concerned about going all out for one gift in particular this is the perfect alternative. Pick a cute basket, decorate it with ribbons and bows and fill it with tasty nibbles, some bottles of beer, golf balls, CD’s, DVD’s, chocolate hearts or anything else you know he’ll appreciate.
He might appreciate some aftershave or cologne – This is a very classic Valentine’s gift that will benefit you as well. Pick a scent that you’re fond of and he’ll enjoying smelling sweet as a daisy too. He may already have a particular favourite so you’d be wise to pick something similar. And we probably don’t need to remind you but one man’s perfect scent may not suit all the men in the world.
Any gift you get for him on Valentine’s Day is going to be welcome, but you’ll achieve a greater level of success with a gift that’s personal.
Valentine’s gifts for a boyfriend with a more personal feel
If your boyfriend is a gamer – There’s probably a game that he’s been longing to own, or one that he’s been waiting to be released. Or you could choose to update one of his controllers or give him one of the latest gaming accessories.
Does your boyfriend listen to music? – Whether your boyfriend loves listening to a particular kind of music, has a favourite artist or band, or is always willing to give time to the latest trends in music, a Valentine’s gift for him that suits his taste will be perfect. Does he play an instrument or has he always wanted to learn? Buy him a new sets of drumsticks, plectrums or sign him up for some music lessons.
Can he always be found with his head in a book? – Time for you to put your detective skills to the test and see if you can find out what he’s currently reading. There are comparison gift sites such as Amazon that can easily find you a gift by the same author, or something in the same genre. If you’d prefer to buy something from your local bookstore they will happily offer you advice and recommendations.
Now for one last question that some of you may be asking:
Do you have to buy a Valentine’s gift for your boyfriend if your relationship is still in its infancy?
It can be difficult to know what is appropriate for a Valentine’s gift if you’ve only just begun dating. The best way to look at is the longer you’ve been dating the more money it’s OK to spend. But you also need to be aware of the symbolism behind your gift. Giving your boyfriend the key to your place might be a gift that will scare him off, and be considered jumping the gun a little. But it could also be seen as a commitment to take things further, which some guys might appreciate. Love at first sight is love at first sight after all and what’s the point in waiting?
It’s fair to say that if your boyfriend loves you as much as you love him then whatever you give him will be appreciated. There are plenty of online gift sites, aside from this one, that allow you to tailor your options to the man in your life. So don’t wait any longer, get your Valentine’s gift for him sorted right away.
