Get the Perfect Valentine's Gift for Your Boyfriend

Thursday, January 29, 2009

Still looking for the perfect Valentine's gift for your boyfriend? Here's some tips on creating some more personalized, caring Valentine's gifts for the special boy or man in your life that will show just how much you care without getting too swept away by Valentine's mania.

Ask first! About a week before Valentine's Day, talk to your boyfriend and ask if he has anything special in mind that he'd appreciate. Don't ask too many questions, just a few sweet ones will do to give you an idea whether or not he has an interest in divulging any ideas.
Decide what type of romance he fancies. Does he really appreciate a romantic approach that will involve booking a special restaurant for a five-course meal or filling the swimming pool with rose petals? Or is he more comfortable with just the usual night on the town with lots of laughter and favorite beers as the two of you pub crawl? You know best how he feels, so make use of this knowledge to plan a special night together.
Do something rather than give something. If he has long wanted his hair dyed black, you could buy him some hair dye and prepare a home salon and dye it for him. Make sure you feel confident enough to get it right! You could also do this for home pedicures, massages, a yoga lesson etc. - anything you have said you'd get around to helping him do or learn some day.
Go homemade. It's not just about buying stuff. Valentine's is really about showing that you care. Make your boyfriend a card that says how much you love him. Write a poem or some sweet prose. Anything to say how much you care about him and the reasons why. Many people just love being told the exact reasons why they matter so much; this can be the best gift of all.
Give a kiss for a gift! Guys sometimes would just like a kiss. If you haven't given him one yet, wow, this will be special. But most of you will have already kissed; so it is how you present the kiss that matters. Take him somewhere unique and make the kiss something out of the ordinary. For example, take a trip up a cable car, take him in your arms in the cable car and say: "We are kissing on top of this mountain in a cable car because I really love you, you put me on top of the world and this is a Valentine's special". Kiss so long that the crowd claps you both.
Bake something for your sweetheart. Bake some heart-shaped cookies with hundreds and thousands and "I love you" printed on them in icing. Arrange in a box and present it to him with a card.
Decorate a photo of the two of you. Choose a perfect photo of the two of you, decorate a frame for it and write a little something to go with it, including why this photo means a lot to you. This is a very personalized and caring gift. You can even make a wallet-sized one and include a new wallet if you've got a good idea what sort of wallet he'd like. Put a good luck heart or coin in it as well.
Check the tips if you're out of ideas. There are some traditional stand-bys suggested there.

Guys don't usually like glass, that's a guy give girl thing.
Chocolates are good too.
Back up plan for any guy is maybe a sweater from some clothing store he likes or a t-shirt. Watches are always good presents too but they are for the more serious couples. If you're looking for something a little unpredictable and also trying to drop a hint, pick him up a pair of nice boxer shorts.
If He loves you that much, anything you do, he will love with all his heart and still give you kisses and hugs afterwards.

Don't buy him anything he has asked for unless you feel you should or you really wanted this advice and asked for it; you don't want to be predictable.
Don't feel bad if he doesn't like it; that's his fault for not being gracious enough to appreciate that the thought is what counts. If he can't appreciate you, then consider whether he's worth your time.

Valentine's Day is a holiday where coming up with new gift ideas is always difficult. No one wants that expected bouquet of roses every year, so we try to surprise our special someone. Well this year I came up with a great gift idea for my boyfriend. With help from this article..
I was able to book my boyfriend and I, a little four day getaway for only $4. Yea, I know sounds crazy but it's true.. I got the hotel for only $1 a night.
