Making The Most Of Valentine’s Gifts For Him
The emphasis on Valentine’s Day remains, in the majority, with a man’s token of love to a woman. The red roses that so symbolize the modern Valentine’s Day are a male love token, a gesture of the man’s heart, a product of romance….. and some quite heavy marketing. The annual love peak is reached on February 14 each year, and marriage proposals hit the news as the more imaginative men think of unique ways to pop the question, while others bring out their engagement rings with confidence on a scale from total, arrogant confidence, down to sheer desperation and extreme wishful thinking.
Love and romance are, of course, a two way combo; at least, we all hope it is two way. While the red roses, and to a lesser extent the heart shaped chocolates, are the domain of the man to woman love token, millions of women still feel the desire to buy a Valentine’s Day gift for him each February. The problem then is, what to buy, and how to make Valentine’s Day as romantic for the husband or boyfriend as a recipient as it can be as a giver?
With Valentine’s Day coming so soon after Christmas, many girls and women will recently have been through the gift searching process for their husband or boyfriend. Maybe, then, there is little more thinking to do about a Valentine’s Day gift for a husband or boyfriend. Or is there?
Any gift should come from the heart, so in that sense Valentine’s Day and Christmas should be no different. However, February 14 is different. It is not just for any gift, but one that somehow encapsulates your love for him and the romance of Valentine’s Day. Plus, it can be how you present the gift that will touch his heart and bring that spark of romance to what might otherwise be an unromantic gift.
When it comes to choosing the actual gift for your Valentine, then there are some possibilities with just that extra touch of romance being applied to the quite normal. The following are just a few ideas.
Men’s Perfumes and Colognes
When it comes to marketing perfumes, romance and attraction are often integral to the image created. Given that perfumes, or men’s colognes, are designed to provoke senses, that is not surprising. Sensuality and romance, sensuality and love, and sensuality and fragrance, are all combinations of the sensual.
Due to the often romantic connotations, men’s cologne can be a good choice as a Valentine gift for him. You will find there are men’s perfume ranges with a heart, love or romance theme that will make appropriate gifts for February 14. Some of the top designer names have their romantic perfumes, such as Romance by Ralph Lauren, Eternal Love by Eternal Love, and Touch of Love by Fred Hayman.
While many men will not appreciate a piece of jewellery for themselves with a heart shape or rose feature, that does not mean you cannot make a jewellery gift a little bit romantic.
Most pieces of jewellery can be engraved, and that is where your gift can be romanticized. Your love message engraved on a men’s bracelet, chain or even watch can become a lasting memory of your love for him.
Other Gifts for Him On Valentine’s Day
The options for a man’s Valentine’s gift are probably as endless as those for Christmas. Any gift can be romanticized by a little bit of imagination. So, if you know him well, you will know not only what he will appreciate as a gift but also how to present it to him in a romantic way, wrapped with your love and appreciation. It does not have to be a romantic gift in itself, so long as the message from your heart to his comes across.
However, it would be nice to include a little something that has an obvious romantic link, even it is just a heart shaped box of chocolates wrapped up with the beer making kit, box of golf balls, or video on how to catch carp.
No, maybe not. I am sure your imagination can do much better than that. Select your gift or gifts, then make Valentine’s Day 2006 a day to remember for the man you love whatever it is you decide on. The true romance of the day will come not from any gift, but how you both interact at an emotional and sensual level; and that includes how you react to the Valentine’s gifts he has bought for you, and the dating app you will (hopefully) go on to compete the day.
