Valentine’s Day is coming up just around the corner. Here is just some helpful hints on what not to get your man for Valentines Day whether he is your boyfriend or husband. Also, a few ideas on what you might want to get him instead. Hopefully this will make you Valentine’s shopping a little easier.
A lot of women think guys might like teddy bears because we think they are cute and cuddly. Most guys don’t really like them. Instead of a teddy bear, guys would rather snuggle with you.
Scented candles would also be a big no for guys for valentines as they might feel like a girl. He might like a candle if it smelled like a car or bacon but he would probably rather get cigars as opposed to a candle.
Heart boxers are probably a no as they aren’t sexy to a guy. Plus he will take it like you think he needs new underwear. A nice robe would be nice or maybe a jacket, but not heart boxers or any kinda of valentine ones.
Improvement gifts are not a good idea for a gift either. Which would be like self-help books, cologne or products for his hair. It will sound like you want him to look better and act better. He might like a tool or an army knife instead.
Any goofy t-shirts or ties would also not be a good gift for Valentine’s Day. That’s just asking for a guy to get picked on wearing something like that. You could get him a shirt with his favorite sports team instead.
Something with a lot of assembly
Sure something big like a shed for Valentine’s is nice. But he probably isn’t going to want to spend all that time having to put his gift together. Instead maybe something small that wouldn’t require a lot of hours of work to get it together.
Don’t buy a chick flick that he sounded like he liked watching with you. He probably liked watching it with you but won’t really want it for himself. Maybe if there is a movie he said he actually wanted then that would be a good idea.
You most definitely do not want to get a guy flowers. He would probably like a video game, but of course that will cause him to spend less time with you. So that will have to be a decision for you to make.
Lingerie is definitely a no for a guy unless its something that is for you to wear.
The worst gift would be giving nothing which would make him feel that he isn’t important or special to you. Even if it is just a card and some chocolate or candy. You know guys will love candy.
