Most Valentines Day gifts and celebrations are centered around spoiling the ladies. I came up with a short list of things you can do to treat the men in your life so that they too can look forward to Valentines Day. 😄
1. Alcohol and Sweets 🥂🍫
I saw some bottles of wine and liquor at my local HEB grocery store all wrapped up in a basket with chocolates and other candies. 🍾Roy has a bigger sweet tooth than I do and I’m sure there are men out there who would love something sweet 🍬 on V’day.
If he’s not into alcohol or sweets, there are Valentines Day snacks at the grocery store. You can make him a snack bouquet out of whatever he likes to eat.
2. A Skincare Travel Bag 👝
Cuz let’s face it… how many men do you know have a skin care routine or a set of products they use on a daily basis to care for their skin and hair? 🤷🏾♀️ I’m happy that grooming has become a lot more popular for men than it used to be but if your boo is still lacking in that department, get him a nice travel bag and fill it with a few items. 👝 You can add hand lotion, cologne, lip balm, face wash, deodorant wipes, hair and skin oils, some nail clippers, etc. 😄 He can keep it in his car or backpack or work locker to freshen up when he needs to.
3. A Heart-shaped Pizza 🍕
See if your local pizza shops are doing heart-shaped pizzas for Valentines Day. And if not, y’all can make one together!
Funny story: for our first Valentines Day together, Roy pre-ordered a heart-shaped pizza 🍕 for us to share since we couldn’t go out to eat that night and opted to stay in and watch movies. We waited 2 hours for that pizza… And it never showed up. 😳 The shop said they got so busy and just forgot about the early orders. It almost ruined our night cuz we had to go get food elsewhere and Roy was pissed. 😅 We ended up having a good night regardless.
Hopefully, 3 years later they’ve gotten it together and won’t forget your heart-shaped pizza. It’s such a cute idea if y’all aren’t the dining out kind of couple. But we’ll never go down that road again and now y’all know why!
4. Spa Day with Bae 🧖🏾♀️🧖🏾
Get a pedicure for two! He might need one! 👀 It’s a great way to relax and get a laugh out of your man complaining about being too ticklish. 😂 You can even talk him into getting a manicure too. And if y’all have never gotten a couples massage, then now is the time to do it. Roy and I were so relaxed during our couples massage in Grenada that we both fell asleep 😴 lol.
5. Something Red ❤️
Two years ago I got Roy a red Nike hoodie from Macy’s for Valentines Day. I thought it was a cute and practical idea cuz who doesn’t want a nice red Nike hoodie when it’s still a little chilly out???
Think about something your man needs or something he could use on a regular basis and get it in red. ❤️ Some ideas:
- A phone case or AirPods case
- New Xbox/PlayStation controllers
- A tie or pair of socks
- A shirt or some shorts
- A robe or house shoes
And if the man in your life absolutely hates red… try something with pink or white hearts instead. 🤷🏾♀️
