As you’ll remember, I’m not one of those wives who believe that Valentine’s Day is only for the ladies. Whether he nails it or not, I always like to show my husband some love – and I enjoy finding unique ways to do it. Why? It’s simple: His smile always triggers mine, and well, I like smiling.
So ladies, if you’re with me on this one, you’ve got a little under a month to come up with your own game plan. I can help, if you’ll let me.
For starters, here are six unique, and affordable gifts, he’ll love. (And, s roundup of free and thoughtful gift ideas is coming soon!)
Hidden Message Collar Stays ($39.95)
He already looks good in his suit, but these sweet Hidden Message Collar Stays from Red Envelope will make him feel good in it too. They’re stainless steel and engraved with heartfelt thoughts (six each of two sizes) like “you’re so handsome,” “you smell irresistible” and “you keep me warm.” Seriously, he’s gonna love these!
Man Crate Snack Pack ($49.99)
With us both now being in the 30-and-up club, I don’t normally encourage unhealthy eating without occasion. But, in the case of the Man Crate Snack Pack, I think I’ll make an exception. The picture says it all and the price is quite right if you’re looking to save.
NFL Superbowl DVD Collection (On Sale $90.99)
Calling all NFL season widows: If your husband loves football as much as mine does, nothing will make him smile bigger on Valentine’s Day than opening up this NFL Superbowl I-XLVI DVD Collection. With 44 hours worth of history making plays, wins, loses and commentary to watch, he’ll be thanking you all year. The only catch is that he may never re-emerge from his man cave. I’m just saying; you’ve been warned.
Reasons I Love You Stones ($29.95)
If your husband is anything like mine, the last thing he’ll want for Valentine’s Day is a box of chocolates, flowers or teddy bears. This can make giving a sentimental gift tricky. I think these Reasons I Love You Stones from RedEnvelope.com are just as sweet as they are manly – the ideal combination.
This Guy Loves His Wife T-Shirt ($14.25)
Simple. Sweet. Fun. If your husband likes his gifts this way, and he’s not afraid to tell the world he puts you first, this “This Guy Loves His Wife” T-Shirt has his name on it.
Personalized Royce Leather Watch Box ($130)
My husband hoards watches like I stash shoes. If yours likes to keep time in style too, order him one of these Personalized Royce Leather Watch Boxes from Brookstone.
