This post is all about Valentine’s day ideas for him
Men are so difficult to shop for, we all know that by now. Even more so in this strange time where holidays and date nights at restaurants are completely out of the question.
Do we just buy the old underwear and sock valentine’s day cliche? How can we be more creative?
I asked a few women on my Instagram what they are getting for their significant other for valentine’s day and I got some hilarious responses
Have men stopped receiving boxers for Valentine’s day?😂 – Amina
Some of us don’t have men, Torera – Praise
This next response had me a little confused
Boyfriends usually want other girls for Valentine’s day- Deanie
Okay, let’s come back to earth for a second. I am assuming you celebrate Valentine’s day, of course, else you wouldn’t be reading this.
I hope some of these ideas inspire you to finally make a decision on what to buy for him for Valentine’s day. But if you just want to know what I am getting, scroll all the way to the end.
This came up a lot!
Early morning sex, breakfast in bed, baby him all day, then sex for sleep therapy once again! – Jola
My husband wants Converse and Tantric s*x – Ria
Can someone please explain to me what tantric s*x even means? 😂
Restaurant home kit
We will be celebrating lockdown Valentine’s Day by cooking a home-cooked meal (we do this most years) or maybe this year we will try one of the home kits from one of the fancy restaurants! -Sam
I love this idea so much. The Infatuation has a wonderful article with a full list of restaurants offering home kits
Laptop bag and wallet
I have noticed his laptop workbag getting old so I will replace that along with his wallet – Judith
portable vacuum cleaner
I would like a portable vacuum cleaner – Yomi
podcast station Accessory
Men are so hard to shop for. I got him a nice microphone for Christmas to support his goal of starting a podcast so I will add another accessory he needs for his podcast station- Mo’
The problem is men don’t want to talk – acting like they don’t like gifts. Mine would appreciate a gift basket of some sort with some beer, snacks, quality socks, his favourite beard care products as well – Marilyn
Mine wants shares in BYD (A Chinese Firm) I just might cave in and do it – Vanessa
A home-cooked meal and Pedicure
Definitely a home-cooked meal – I may try to replicate his favourite dishes from our favourite restaurants. Maybe give him a pedicure too… his feet for sure misses his pedicurist 🤣
This collapsible pedicure bucket has been a life-changer for me. It collapses and fits in the corner of my bathroom. Love it!
Perfume and Wallet
I don’t have a man, technically but I know the closest one to me would appreciate a perfume and a wallet…overheard him talking about it… Naomi, Banker
Perfume is always a winner for me – Pelumi, Travel Blogger
Mine said anything works but I think I’d get him a really nice perfume – Sisianie
I agree, if you want to play it safe, perfume is always a lovely gift
I don’t know if it’s what men want, but I like getting personalized gifts (actually I do this for most people 😂) and so I order stuff on Etsy, like maybe stuff embroidered with initials, or items with themes that people like – music-themed items for music buffs, engraved jewelry, etc – Lamide
Hubby wants quality time. That’s all he asked for – Ndey
Food, chill, and sex. What else is there to Valentine’s day? – Esther
My boyfriend will certainly want to see me because we are in a long-distance relationship – Chimdi
I asked my man and he said “All I want is you” – Olawunmi
Good food and a day alone without our child – Bemi
Good food, good uninterrupted long sex and good sleep without waking a child to pee – Tosin
He said he just wants my presence but I went ahead and got him clothes – Mrs A
A Love note
A sweet special love note is something he would appreciate – Blythe
PS5 – Tiwa
If I had a man I would get him a Ps5 as that would have been hard to get over the holiday
He wants a smartwatch – Tinu
A pixel 5 – Fola
Mine wants the latest Ps5 game but I can’t afford that right now – Omon
Noise-canceling headphones like Beats by Dre Solo Pro – Tae’
My husband has been talking about transistor radio for months and that will certainly be his Valentine’s gift – Korede
What I am getting him for Valentine’s Day
These are all excellent Valentine’s day ideas for him and I am sure by now you must be asking what ideas I have for Valentine’s day. I’ll be extremely honest, I hadn’t given it much thought until very recently but let me quickly share something my husband did for me that would make an excellent gift idea.
2 years ago we were supposed to visit Paris but we couldn’t get my visa in time. Want to know what my dear husband did? He dressed up in a suit, printed photos of the important locations in Paris, had geranium rose essential oil diffusing with a french themed Spotify playlist for ambience. He dimmed the lights in the hallway and served me French cuisine (store-bought but let’s give him an A for effort)
Imagine my shock when I returned from work to find my husband in the hallway, dressed in a suit with a red rose in hand and speaking the little French he knows😂. He lit up our curtains with some string lights and called it the Eifel Tower and used up all our printer ink😂 to educate me about the different locations in Paris.
That day was special, I remember it like it was yesterday. I truly hope this inspires you and I wish you a happy Valentine’s day
