Valentine's gifts for men can be challenging. Here are three unusual and winning ways to impress your guy.
Men aren't easily satisfied with flowers and candy, yet you love him and want to tell him so with a token of your heart. Try giving him something extraordinary that hell always remember.
My Favorite Things
In this busy world people sometimes forget to say the things that should be said, those sentiments that make a person feel good about themselves. "I Love You" is wonderful to hear, but how often does someone get to hear the "why" of that love? For Valentine's Day, tell him all the reasons you love him by making him a "My Favorite Things" list.
Every time you think of something you love about him, jot it down.
His hands are strong. His voice gives you chills. He wears his watch just
so on his wrist. He laughs like a kid at cartoons. He handles a car like a
professional driver. It can be anything and everything. Fill a small notebook
with your thoughts, or use a roll of adding machine paper, writing
carefully so that the paper can be re-rolled it when you are done
recording all of your favorite things.
Take several days or weeks to make your list and make it long.
Include sketches and doodles between the items. It doesn't matter if you
have artistic talent. That's not what's important. The effort and the list is
what matters. Tuck the notebook, or the roll of paper tied with a twine bow,
into a basket of his favorite drinks and snacks. He can eat, drink
and read at his leisure.
Telling him how much you love him with a list of his greatest qualities
will touch him and make him proud.
Make Him a Star
What does he enjoy doing? Is he into cars? Weekly poker night with the guys? Snowboarding? Playing the stock market? Whatever his passion, give him a gift that fits his dreams by choosing something unique and personalized. How about poker chips with his picture on them? His own beer bottle labels? Search online for great personalized ideas. Places like Party411.com offer lots of ideas and possibilities. Then give him his gift at a favorite spot, with a bottle of his favorite wine or a six-pack of his favorite beer. Make the giving as personal as the gift.
And if you really want to make him a star, check out MagMyPic.com for a fun tribute
gift that will keep on giving. Have his photo put on the cover of the magazine that fits him to
a tee. Does he dream of being a rock star? A superhero? Whatever his dream, hell get a kick
out of tossing his cover atop a stack of magazines on his coffee table for his friends to discover.
Or have the cover framed so that he will be reminded every day that he sees it of the
playful, loving side of you.
Personalized gifts let the man in your life enjoy your gift again and again. So go
ahead and let him know that he is already a star in your world.
Give Him a Posse
What man wouldn't want his own crew? Enlist your friends to help
you pamper your guy for a day. Go where he goes and do whatever
needs to be done. From opening his doors to washing his car, don't let
him lift a finger for one whole day. Take him to lunch and let the world see
his entourage and wonder "who is that?" Mow his grass. Massage his
shoulders. Take him to the driving range. Whatever his pleasure, give
him a day he'll never forget.
And remember to bring the camera along to record this
momentous occasion. Then, when all is said and done, give him a
photo album, complete with your remembrances of the day. He'll
want to boast to his friends about your incredible gift, and a photo
album will be all the proof he needs.
Saying "I Love You" with selfless actions will stick in his heart like nothing else.
