Valentine's Gifts for the Man in Your Life

Now that we've covered great V-Day gifts for women, what about men? Men are a little harder to buy for because most of the gifts that work for women, just don't work for men (flowers, chocolates, lingerie, jewelry, etc.). So what should you get the man in your life? Here are some ideas.


Although jewelry doesn't work, a beautiful watch is a great addition to any man's wardrobe. Here are some great deals on watches available now:

Invicta Men's Pro Diver Watch though listed at $895, this watch is on sale for only $90, a fraction of the original cost. Choose from rose gold, blue ionic, and gun metal bezel. This is a beautiful watch that's been highly rated.

For a striking face, check out the Stuhrling Men's Professional Diver Watch. At only $70, down from over $120, and a 4.3 star review rating, this is a great option as well.

Of course these are just a couple of the stunning watches available. Many are on sale right now at great prices.


Most men are kids at heart, so nothing is better than a new toy. From video games and systems to tablets to e-readers, a new toy may be just the perfect way to say, "I love you." 

If you're sweetheart is an audiophile or a gamer, a sweet set of headphones would make a great gift. Great options include the V-MODA Crossfade Headphones, which are currently 50% off and have a 4.5 rating. Another option is the Sennheiser HD-280 PRO Headphones at $98 or the Pioneer STEEZ Stereo Headphones at $50 (down from $130).

If headphones aren't the cards, consider getting a tablet. They're so versatile with the many apps available and your love will have fun playing games, watching Netflix, reading books and more. Consider the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7-Inch, Wi-Fi). At only $200, it's a reasonably priced tablet that runs Android 4.0. Though it only comes with 8 GB of internal memory, it's expandable with micro SD cards.

Depending on his interests, other fun gifts include digital cameras, cuff links that double as a Wi-Fi hotspot, or a safe that looks like a can of Dr. Pepper.

Do Something for Him

Although it's always nice to get a gift, sometimes the best present is doing something for your sweetheart:
Via Mommy by Day, Crafter by Night
  • Get the kids out of the house for the night and cook him dinner (maybe not on the day of Valentine's so you can actually find a sitter). After dinner watch your wedding video and talk about what you remember about your wedding day.
  • Make him some love coupons with things that he usually doesn't get (i.e. not "clean the kitchen" or "take the dog for a walk" if he doesn't usually do these things anyway). For example, if he hates mowing the lawn every weekend, make him coupons for mowing the lawn so he can have a break every once in awhile.
  • Schedule out some together time for you and him when no one else is around. Pick an activity he really enjoys and do it with him (with a good attitude even if it's not one of your favorite things to do).
  • Give him a heart attack. No, don't send him to the hospital, but cut out a bunch of hearts and hide them around the house, car, his lunch, his briefcase, wherever (maybe get up early before he leaves for work and do it). On each heart, right something you love about him. 
  • Write him a love letter. Sure emails and texts are great, but there is something about a hand-written letter. Write why you fell in love and how you feel today. Tell him all the things you're grateful for and why you're glad you two are together. Don't forget to seal with a lipstick kiss and light spray of perfume. 
Hope this helps in brainstorming. What are you planning on doing for your sweetie this Valentine's Day? Or what did you do? Share in the comments.
