Unique Valentine Gift Idea for Man

Looking for a unique valentine gift idea for man? At this time of year, I'm always searching for something creative for my husband, but it's not an easy task.

I feel like men are all around harder to buy for than women--especially on a sentimental day like Valentine's Day! Below are some of my favorite suggestions for the man in your life:

  • Gift certificate for a massage
  • Candy, cookies, or whatever sweets he prefers
  • Bake a cookie bouquet
  • Subscription to his favorite magazine
  • Movie or dinner gift certificate--something you can do together
  • Cologne or after shave
  • Jewelry - ring, necklace, cuff links, watch, tie tac
  • Gift certificate to have his car detailed
  • Scrapbook with pictures of the two of you
  • Letter or poem...use these love quotes for inspiration
  • Items related to his hobby - golf, baseball, hiking, gardening, etc.
  • Favorite book or gift certificate to a book store
  • Make a CD with his (or both of your) favorite songs on it use our romantic love songs list for ideas!)
  • Bake him a one-of-a-kind cookie cake
  • Plan a weekend getaway, and don't tell him where you're going until you get there
  • Autographed picture of his favorite sports player
  • Concert tickets to see his favorite musician/group

One year I made a "gift for the five senses." I gathered an item for each of the five senses and put them into a basket. Here's what I used for each sense:

  • Sight - A picture of us together in a personalized frame
  • Hearing - A CD that I made on my computer with our favorite songs
  • Taste - His favorite candy
  • Smell - Cologne
  • Touch - A soft pair of gloves

I labeled each item with the sense, and put a basket wrap over it. A tag hung from the top that said "a gift for your five senses." An alternative cute saying for the tag would be "you fill up my senses."

Another year I bought him a tool belt and filled all the pockets with gifts. He loved the idea, and gets a lot of use out of the tool belt.
