Hello Dreamies, long time no see and welcome to my second annual Valentine’s Day Gift Guide for Him! I know I’ve been away an entire month, but I really needed to decompress after December. Anyone else feel like it’s a competitive sport yet you’re not competing with anyone other than time?? I haven’t gone completely off the grid, you can find me on Instagram posting 3-5 times a week! Check me out here and be sure to give me a follow and say hi!
Now let’s get down to business – Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching! If you’re anything like me, you’re totally stumped on what to do for the special man in your life. As I sat and brainstormed the perfect gift, I noticed once again how geared towards women every thing about Valentine’s Day is. Even asking my husband got me nowhere! But with less than 10 days left, I searched Amazon tirelessly, and I think I found some pretty cute and heartfelt gifts to give! If you don’t have Amazon Prime, you can always sign up for their free trial so you can get that fast shipping we all love so much! Now let’s get to it, shall we?
Thoughtful and Sweet Gifts
This soy candle is handmade in Oregon, and such a sweet idea! You have a choice of 20 scents including Mexican hot chocolate, Cabin in the woods and Banana pancakes. There are two sizes to choose from – 9 oz. or 16 oz. ($10 more) and you can upgrade the gift box and gift wrapping for a fee. You can also add a cute gold foil matchbox to your order! This gift is the only one that’s not Prime eligible, but if you order soon, standard shipping may get it to you in time.
This 96 page journal can either be filled out by one partner for another, or filled out as a couple. The prompts and questions guide you through writing out your own love story! What could be more sentimental than remembering how the two of you fell in love?
Fun Gifts for Couples
This game is great for couples or for parties. The Talk cards include fun conversation topics, great for parties while the Flirt and Dare cards heat things up. There’s no complicated rules and features 150 cards!
Much like the chore coupons you would give your mom on Mother’s Day, these too are the gift that keeps on giving. The Vouchers for Lovers has 20 different requests including “Shower for Two” and “End Argument”. The Sex Checks are a little different. There are 30 IOUs and 30 IOMEs, with boxes to check and blank spaces to fill in to your ::ahem:: hearts desire.
I love giving cute mugs for holidays, especially to those you know will use them! One year I gave my husband a turtle shaped mug from Hallmark that said “I Turtley Love You”. I just get a kick out of it when I see him use it. I’m a bit of a Star Wars nerd so I love this mug, but if you and your love aren’t into Star Wars, there are plenty of other cute sarcastic mugs out there. I found a few funny and inappropriate mugs on Amazon, but my daughter likes to check out the blog from time to time so I have to keep this clean haha!
What better way to show your love for someone than by giving them the tools to care for themselves? This set includes shave oil, face balm and face wash made from all natural, cruelty free ingredients. Skin care is so important and you will find something comparable on really any gift guide I put together. It amazes me how few people actually know what a proper skin care routine is, so to give that gift of self-care just means so much to me!
This sweet almond massage oil is lavender, peppermint and marjoram scented and works wonders on stiff and sore muscles. The next two recommendations in this guide are meant to go along with one of the greatest gifts you can give, a massage!
Show your partner how much you care without killing your hands in the meantime! I’m definitely going to get my hands on one of these babies because after typing, knitting, and crocheting my hands are killing me!
I remember when I was younger, my mom would beg us to use the rolling-pin on her back. Imagine how much better she would have felt if we had one of these? I’ll be adding this to my shopping cart as well!
A Little Something Different…
I thought this was really stunning. I’ve seen these pop up before and figured this was something different to offer. This set comes with two glasses and is lead-free. You could add some whiskey stones, an ice ball mold or large ice-cube tray to really complete the gift!
Other great ideas include making him dinner or going out to a nice restaurant, planning a date night together or even a spa day for the weekend before or after. Nothing says “I Love You” like a little relaxation and some delicious food! If this gift guide didn’t quite cover it for you, be sure to check out last years Valentine’s Day Gift Guide for Him! As always, tell me what you think – leave me a comment below, on Facebook or on the ‘Gram, I’d love to hear from you!
