What to Give Your Guy for Valentine's Day

Women often make mistakes when shopping for their boyfriends and husbands by thinking they will love a romantic gift. The truth is men are much more practical than you think. With Valentine's Day coming soon and birthdays always on the horizon here are some Gift Ideas for Men you can turn to when you need a gift for your guy.
  1. Food – Make it hardy such as Meat Cheese Basket loaded with contents such as smoked beef summer sausage, beef salami, wild Alaskan smoked salmon and Wisconsin cheddar cheese blocks. 
  2. Sweets – Forget that box of fine chocolates. Truffles are not their style. Instead, consider a Giant Fortune Cookie with your personal romantic fortune inside. Choose from all kinds of Fortune Cookie styles with icing and themed candy decorations. Chocolate Dipped Oreos are another favorite. And we have a variety that looks like golf balls sitting on a golf green. 
  3. Tools and Gadgets – Most guys like to carry a small knife in their pocket and a three in one tool in their car. Make sure the men in your life have the tools they need with style. Give your man a monogrammed tool to remind them of you every time they have an opportunity to use it.
  4. Sports Team Gear – Does your man follow a favorite sports team? Does he watch every NFL game on his wide screen or track to the baseball stadium to watch his team play? Does he like the clash of the players on ice displayed in a hockey match? If so give him team memorabilia to celebrate his team. All of these sports gifts feature a team logo along with your name and other personalization. Here are just a few examples:

  7. Humidors and Lighters – Does your man like to relax with a fine cigar? Then make sure that his selection remains fresh with a Personalized Cigar Humidor. And while you are at it make sure he always has a lite with Monogrammed Zippo Lighter
  8. Hobby Related Gifts – Guys love their hobbies and toys so when a gift-giving opportunity arises you can always find a gift relating to their hobby or interest. So consider giving them golf clubs, a Personalized Executive Putter Set or even Gold Dipped Golf Balls and Tees. Hunters are sure to enjoy a Personalized Ammunition Box or a Camouflage Flask
  9. Dad Themed Gifts – These gifts may seem a little a hokey. Still, all dads cherish the gifts made by their children. Even better you can insert a photo of his children in a Father Themed Picture Frame. What about an Apron featuring the names of his children and their birth dates? There are even # 1 Dad Cufflinks and Ties! And of course the old standby a Top Dad Coffee Mug
Growlers Sets Make Great Additions to a Man Cave Bar

Avoid Embarrassing Gifts

Be sure to avoid sending a prissy gift to a public location that might embarrass your guy. While a romantic Sexy Gift Basket filled with massage oils and other tempting delights might make for a fun evening, it would be embarrassing for your husband to open the package at his desk in a cubicle office.  So for example, sending a Balloon Bouquet with a giant Teddy Bear to a deployed Marine Seal might cause the other seals to hassle your guy.
Make It Personal for Your Guy with Personalized Gifts!

So as you plan for Valentine's Day for your husband or Birthday Gift for your boy friend keep in mind that guys prefer the practical and functional over the frufoo anytime. Just follow these suggestions in this article and others and your guy is sure to enjoy any gift you select.
