Alternative Valentines Day Gifts For The Man In Your Life
With Valentine’s day just a few weeks away, it’s time to start thinking about what to get the man in your life. There has always been a strong feminine influence on the Valentine's gifts available in stores and online. But if your husband or boyfriend is not a fan of cuddly teddy bears and heart-shaped frames, if can be difficult to know what to get him. You want to present him with a gift that shows just how much you know and care for him, without giving him a gift that sucks. So take a look at this gift guide and buy him something special today.
It’s always easy to opt for an alcoholic gift when you don’t know what to buy. But buying your man a speciality alcoholic item will always be appreciated. Buying something that he would usually buy for himself will be a fantastic gift this valentine's day. Whisky is an ideal choice, as it has so many different styles and qualities. You could go for a woodford reserve sonoma cutrer or a hibiki suntory depending on his preference. Try to buy a bottle of something he has always wanted to try for an extra special touch. If he doesn’t like whisky you could always try some imported beers and wines, or vodka as an alternative. Complete your gift by tying a handmade tag around the neck of the bottle and buy some suitable glasses so he can get pouring straight away. Valentine’s day is a day for celebrating after all. Remember to drink responsibly and don’t buy alcohol if you are underage.
Artwork is an incredible and personal gift to give this Valentine’s day. But instead of buying your husband or boyfriend a new poster for their room or office, try to make it more fun and romantic. Commission an artist to depict you and your boyfriend as your favourite fictional characters. Harry Potter and Hermione Granger or Black Widow and Captain America are fantastic examples. Think of characters from books and movies that he adores, and it shouldn’t be too difficult. Find an artist who has a drawing style that he would like and send a clear image of you both to them. Once complete, place the picture in a frame and wrap it up in a box to keep it safe. This will make a thoughtful gift that will bring a smile to his face each time he sees it. Remember that these pieces take time so order sooner rather than later.
Something to wear every day
Buying jewellery may seem like a traditional Valentine’s day option, but it makes a beautiful gesture. Find him a bracelet in a metal, woven or leather material, in a design that suits him. This gift will show him just how much you care for him and can be something he wears every day. Place in an embossed wooden box to keep your gift a surprise till he opens it. To add even more sentiment to this gift, you could get it engraved with a message or inside joke. No doubt he will put it on instantly.
These gift ideas you can rest assured he will love whatever you buy for him this Valentine's day.
