Your Search for the Perfect Valentine’s Day Gift for Your Husband
If you still have no idea what to get your husband for Valentine’s Day, we recommend leaning on our expertise. If you didn’t know, there are just two things guys want, which we explain in thissimple guide to getting it right.
Read on for some ideas that are sure to be a hit this February 14.
1.Personalized Bifold Wallet
Apersonalized bifold wallet tops the list as one of our favorite Valentine gift ideas for your husband. You can engrave his initials on the front, and when he opens the wallet, he’ll be surprised to see a heartfelt message from you on the inside.
That’s right, you can etch whatever message you desire on the inside. This note is a fantastic opportunity to tell him how much you love and appreciate him, and part of what makes this wallet such an amazingly sentimental gift.
A fair warning: Be prepared for some waterworks. Your husband certainly won’t be expecting to open his new wallet and see a personalized message telling him how much he means to you. Seriously, we’ve had some prettyemotional reactions from our customers.
The best part is that he’ll think of you every day when he goes to open his wallet, making this present both practical and romantic. Talk about a win-win.
Every man has to deal with facial hair, which is why a beard grooming kit is an incredibly practical present. This Valentine’s Day, give your husband the gift of a soft, luscious beard.
Not sure what a good beard grooming kit should include?
Any kit worth buying should come equipped with some kind of beard brush, comb, and trimming scissors. Additionally, you should be on the lookout for other items such as beard oil, beard balm, and beard shampoo and conditioner.
Whether your man likes sporting a long beard or has to keep things looking neat and tidy for work, a beard kit will offer him a range of practical items to use in his self-care routine.
The gift of self-care—if that’s not a thoughtful present, we don’t know what it is.
3. Bartender Kit
Does your husband love to entertain? For the husband whose greatest thrill in life is hosting, a basic bartender kit makes a fantastic Valentine Day gift idea.
You’ll want to buy a set that includes a cocktail shaker, a bottle opener, a corkscrew, and a long-handled spoon. Most basic kits will at least include these items, but check to make sure.
Consider whether or not he’ll be taking this set on the road. If he’s enthusiastic about making drinks for his friends when you go out of town together, a specially designed travel bartender kit could be a great choice.
Pro Tip: If you want to take this gift to the next level, buy him a cocktail book or invest in one or two of his favorite liquors so he can get started right away.
Yep, it’s true, and now that you are aware of this significant life-hack, you’ll get why apersonalized whiskey decanter set is a great Valentine Day gift idea for your husband.
The first thing he’ll love about the set when he opens it is how beautiful and well made it is. The decanter is topped with a square glass stopper, and our customers appreciate the fact that the solid base gives it a nice solidness (it weighs in at almost 3lbs!)
It can be personalized in two places: You can put his name on the front and tell him how you feel about him in a sentimental message on the back.
We recommend engraving your favorite section of your wedding vows, or perhaps the lyrics to the song of your first dance at your wedding. You could even put the date of your anniversary or the year your children were born. The options are endless.
Sometimes the gifts that make the most impact are the simplest gifts, and your husband will surely get emotional when he sees the thought you’ve put into this present.
5. Sentimental Valentine's Day Gift Ideas
Nothing stands out as a perfect Valentine’s Day gift for your husband more than sentimental presents. Sentimental gifts are great because he’s guaranteed to like them—and you may even get an emotional reaction from him. Not to mention, these types of gifts tend to be more budget friendly.
So what do we mean by sentimental gifts?
No one characteristic defines them, but they tend to be things that are extra thoughtful that you can’t just buy at a store. They can have something to do with a memory or an inside joke, and sometimes they’re difficult to obtain.
For example, photos make a great sentimental gift. You can print your favorite shots of the two of you and put them in a unique collage frame. Or you can take the family portraits that are just waiting to be displayed and frame those. (If you don’t have any recent ones, now’s a great time to make a family photo appointment!)
If you have children, an incredibly thoughtful idea is a shadowbox with some important items from their birth and early years. You can also frame their hand or footprints.
These are just some ways to approach sentimental gifts, but the sky’s the limit here. The idea with this gift is to get his emotion flowing. You’re the one that knows him best, so go with something that you know will touch him.
6. Unforgettable Experiences
If you still don’t know what to get your husband for Valentine’s Day, sometimes the best presents aren’t things he can hold in his hands. We’re big fans of gifts that leave memories.
So what specifically are we talking about?
Perhaps there’s a place you’ve always talked about visiting, but for one reason or another, you haven’t been able to commit to going. Maybe you haven’t been back to the place you got married or engaged.
Every couple can think of this bucket list place or particular location that they’re dying to get to, so surprise your husband this Valentine’s Day with a romantic getaway gift.
If a trip is out of your price range, there are other affordable, experience-based Valentine’s Day gift ideas out there. Always wanted to try ceramics? Go to a class together. Have you been dying to try guitar lessons? Now’s a great time to sharpen your music skills.
