Notice I mentioned creative V-day gifts for men, not intense DIY gifts. As someone who wishes I was a bit more crafty than I actually am (basically Pinterest fails is made for me) I tried to think of some sweet, simple and creative gifts for my bae for V-Day. You don’t have to break the bank, or your brain, trying to come up with something cute, but not too intense, just check out these suggestions!
1. “52 Reasons I Love You” Deck of Cards
This is a good option if you’re a bit DIY-challenged. All it takes is a deck of cards and 52 silly and fun thoughts about your S.O. You don’t even have to bind them if you want – just put the cards back in their original package. This can be a mix of sentimental, sappy and sexy all in one.
2. Valentine’s Day In A Box
Simple and fun – this just requires you to have a red wrapped box with fun goodies for the two of you inside. Add a movie you two love or haven’t seen yet, some popcorn, maybe a pocket Kama Sutra, one of those sexy Mad Libs books, cookies and sweet things you love and you have the perfect recipe for a romantic night in.
3. Mix CD
Yes, yes, mixes can be cheesy, but they can also be a perfect little gift that shows how much you care. You know the drill, load up a CD with songs that are romantic, cheesy and relate to your relationship. You really can’t go wrong here unless every single track is Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s Get It On” For added sentimentality write out a track list and explain why each song landed on the CD.
4. His Favorite Dessert
Does he have a sweet tooth? Bake him his favorite cookies, brownies, etc. Not so much? Get a six pack of his favorite craft beer. Really anything that’s one of his indulgences, make it happen!
No this is not quite DIY… or very creative, but it’s a good stand-by that never fails. Why not treat yourself to a silky smooth little something something that makes you feel confident and hot? You know VS is having all kinds of desperate sales trying to capitalize on the holiday. My favorite is their silky feeling kimono – it has pockets, comes in a ton of colors and makes you feel hot.
Whatever you end up doing for V-Day, I hope these little suggestions help and spur some creative thoughts!
