What To Give Your Man For Valentine's Day

One question many women find themselves asking as Valentine's Day draws near is what they should be buying for the man in their life.

This gets even harder if the relationship is slightly new, since then you are not only on the hunt for a gift he'll like, but you also want to find something that isn't 'too much' considering what point your relationship is at.

Here are some ideas that you might be able to put to good use.

A CD Made By You

Rather than going out and purchasing a CD from the store, compile a mixed CD with either bands he's said he liked, or music you've encountered when you two have been together.

This is more thoughtful than simply buying one from the store and as such, will help provide more meaning behind the gift.

Tickets To His Favourite Team's Sports Game

Topping most guys' favourite things to do is attend their team's sports games. Getting him tickets to this, whether you choose to go along too or give him two to take a friend, shows that you are paying attention to his interests and that you aren't going to try and force him away from his sports.

This is something a lot of men fear about getting into a relationship, so by showing him you are alright with watching sports with him or letting him attend games, it'll help relax these nerves of his.

Coupon's For A 'Home Cooked Meal'

For a creative idea, create your own coupons that entitle him to one 'home cooked meal'. This is a good way to have a nice romantic night inside and to also show him that you are capable of cooking.

This is a characteristic that most men value in a woman, so it's something you want to show off. Plus, it shows more thought and effort than simply taking him out to eat at his favorite restaurant.

For The More Advanced Relationship

A Panty-Gram

If you're really in the mood to try and spice things up, send him a panty-gram! Place two or three pairs of new panties in a box and sent this to him as a gift. It'll give him a taste of what you're intending later in the night (something all men will love).

A Weekend Getaway

Getting your boyfriend or husband a weekend getaway is a great way to kill stress and help rekindle your love for each other.

Keep in mind that if a limited budget is something you're working with, you don't necessarily have to travel out of your city, just book a room for two in a cabin or hotel near where you live. This will still give you alone time together, which is the whole point of the trip.

An Engraved Message

When the thought of an engraved gift comes to mind, usually it's always women's presents people think about. This does not need to be the case.

Consider purchasing a really classy watch, belt clip, or cufflink and have a special message written on it. Then, every time he goes to put it on, he'll think of you.

It just takes a regularly simple gift, one step further.

A Gym Membership

Finally, another gift you could consider getting the man in your life is a membership to a gym. You do need to be careful with this gift in particular since it could send a message you don't quite intend to send, but as long as you know he already has a vested interest in working out, then it shouldn't really be a problem. If he's never worked out before though, you do need to watch because he may take it to mean you think he is getting overweight, which, just as women, men can get sensitive about too.

So, don't let Valentine's Day scare you when it comes to gift giving. As long as you take into account what stage of your relationship you are in and what type of hobbies or interests your partner has, you should easily be able to pick up a creative gift that will show him how much you care.

The weekend getaway or the tickets to a sports game are great ideas - you will be creating new memories together.

The best gifts are always something that he has mentioned he wants to do/wants to get but jut hasn't gotten round to doing yet. As an example, I've always wanted to learn to tie a bow tie rather than using the ready tied, clip on ones. My wife got me a tying bow tie for Xmas and it was such a lovely gift coz it showed that she was listening to me and its also something I've always wanted. I wore it just last week to a wedding - first time I've ever tied my own bow tie - not very easy but now I know how! And it was such a blast telling everyone who commented on the bow tie that my wife got it for me!
