I'm so excited that it's February-- I've been holding out on Valentine's Day posts! Today I'm going to touch on gifts for guys on the love-filled day. Men have it easy on this holiday-- give us some flowers, jewelry, anything romantic should result in a positive reaction! Buying for them on the other hand, never an easy task on any occasion. But on Valentine's Day where it's all mushy-gushy? OY!
SO I decided to compile a list of my favorite Valentine's Day gifts for that special guy in your life. Being a lover of the holiday, I like to stick to a red theme, since most things that are pink or have hearts may not be utilized as much. Also, V-Day isn't one that's worth breaking the bank (just a little something to show your guy some love!) so I stuck to a budget of $100 or less. I know there must be something for almost every guy here, so let's get talking!
all prices shown before applicable taxes
Top Row (L-to-R)
Herschel Supply Co 'Novel' Duffel ($80): The perfect replacement for that old gym bag he uses. Plus there is a zipper compartment underneath to hold his shoes!
Beats upbeats Headphones ($89.95): Everyone raves about beats and these are the perfect replacement for his headphones from high school.
Protocol Boxing Glove & Mit Set ($39.99): Is he itching for a new gym routine to fulfill that new year's resolution? Start him off with these gloves. Plus since it comes with 2 pairs, you can get in on the fun too!
2nd Row (L-to-R)
Mophie Juice Pack Air for iPhone 5/5s ($89.90 on Rue La La, normally $99): I don't know about all of you, but my iPhone battery seems to die a lot faster these days. Give him this so you know he'll always be in touch!
Toms 'Classic' Canvas Slip-Ons ($47.95): I love how comfortable Toms are and what they stand for. I also love that these can be the perfect pop of color shoes for him without breaking the budget!
Hot Dog Pop Up Toaster ($19.99): It's no secret that I'm a big hot dog fan, but I consulted my brother on this one to make sure I wasn't too biased. This would be a great tailgating addition and it's only 20 bucks!!
Minnetonka 'Casey' Slipper ($40.95): I always hear about guys stealing their ladies' slippers, so let's get him a pair of his own! As comfy as Uggs, but being from a manlier company (Minnetonka!), these are sure to be a hit with him and his toes.
Bottom Row (L-to-R)
Arthur George by Robert Kardashian 'Kiss Me' Socks ($15): These remind me of when groom's write funny stuff on their shoes for weddings (like "HELP" and "ME", plus I'm a sucker for details. You may never see the words- but just like love- you know they're there!
Fuzzy Handcuffs ($5.95) & Position of the Day Book ($12.95): These I feel are pretty self-explanatory ;) For a more risqué present, these are both cheap add ons to any gift to spice things up.
Hamilton Beach Breakfast Sandwhich Maker ($24.99): Seriously, how have I not heard of this before? This gadget takes 5 minutes to make/assemble a breakfast sandwich in the morning, giving him (or you!) a little bit more sleep.
I hope this helps some of you with your Valentine's Day gift conundrum! I always tend to procrastinate (let's just say I work well under pressure), but I wanted to make sure to get this out in time so gifts could be ordered/picked up before the 14th. Although I may have to go buy that hot dog maker for myself tomorrow… YUMMO!
Get ready for lots more Valentine's Day fun coming your way!
