A third of women say that jewellery would be their gift of choice, while 40% would love to be treated to a day at a spa.

Give your boyfriend or husband a thoughtful and romantic gift and he’ll know how much you care. Valentine’s gifts for him come in all shapes and sizes. some practical, some expensive, some cheap and some romantic. There really is something for everyone. Let’s share a few gift ideas for the man in your life. Try them out and let us know whether they were successful.
Enjoy a night out – Take him out for dinner and book tickets for a show. Think about the activities that he’s going to enjoy, and be prepared to knuckle down and enjoy them together. He might enjoy watching a game, a movie or listening to a rock band perform live. He’s bound to enjoy a night out, but he’ll like it all the more if it’s something he enjoys, you’ve made all the plans and you’re happy to tag along with him.
Something for his hobby – Figure out what your man’s hobby is, because let’s face it they aren’t all going to be the same. Once you’ve figured it out finding a related gift will be easy. If he loves reading a collection of novels will be welcome. If he loves action movies then update his collection with a few of the latest releases.
Chocolates – It’s not just the ladies that love chocolate, there are quite a few men that love it too. If you’re lucky enough to have a man with a sweet tooth then your gift choosing is easy. Buy the best quality chocolates you can afford, but make sure they’re the ones he likes. You might think that a heart-shaped box would be very romantic, but we’re afraid that he’s going to think that a bit cheesy.
Cook him dinner – It’s always nice to go out to dinner, but do you really want to be whispering sweet nothings in a room packed with other diners? A much more romantic option would be to cook him something special at home. That way nobody has to overhear your talk of undying love and share your memories.
Flowers – Yes there are men who would love to receive a bouquet of flowers. but if you’re not sure whether yours fits into this category you could always give him a houseplant or something for the garden.
