Ok ladies, you've officially got 2 weeks to find the "perfect" gift for the love of your life!
The one who makes your heart go pitter patter! The one who puts up with your emotionally craziness (oh wait maybe that's just me), the one that you know for certain you could not live without.
Here are my top picks that I think most men would love to receive. They range in price from a little to a lot - there is something for every man and every budget!
In our house, Valentine's Day has never been about extravagant gifts (and remarkably I've been ok with that, I kid).
Because back in the day when we didn't have enough money to spend on such gifts my husband and I would always give each other chocolate and a card and it was always enough.
It was enough because we would BOTH always take the time to write in our card something personal, we would take the time to choose the perfect card for one another.
I still have those cards and I wouldn't trade them for any diamond in the world!
1. BOOK BOOK FOR IPHONE
My husband can seriously not live without this! He used to get so frustrated carrying a wallet and his phone around and then one day his amazing wife produced this gift of all gifts and his life was simplified! It holds any size iPhone (the site will ask you to choose which size phone you have) and then holds all his cards usually kept in his wallet! Available in both brown and black leather.
2. BEATS WIRELESS HEADPHONES
If you're feeling a little more generous and your budget allows.... any man would love a pair of these Beats by Dre Wireless headphones! I have a pair and I promise you the sound quality is beyond amazing! Plus the convenience of not having to work around a cord is awesome! You will win some major wife points with this gift!
3. COPPER MUGS
These beauties were on my Christmas Gift Guide and they are making another appearance on this one! They are my husbands favorite glass to drink out of it, they truly do keep your drink ice cold! The Moscow Mule is the typical cocktail served in these cups but he could really use them for any drink his heart desires!
4. IF YOU CAN READ THIS... BRING ME A BEER - SOCKS
These socks started popping up around Christmas and made me chuckle. If you can envision your husband sitting on the couch with his feet up on the coffee table than he NEEDS these socks!
One of the most used gifts I ever gave my husband! Before we built a outdoor fireplace this was our go to! I love it because you can move it around, depending on where you are sitting. It's an amazing price point and ours lasted forever!
6. BEATS PILL WIRELESS SPEAKER
How did my husband and I live without this product for so long??? This bluetooth wireless speaker gives off a sound like no other! We pack it in our suitcases for any vacation we go on! We take it to the beach, to the pool and even to our hotel room (to help us sleep of course, geesh). The sound you get out of this little device is amazing and I promise your husband will love it!
7. BABY DADDY MUG
I mean.... do I really need to sell this to you? I saw it and knew my hubby was getting one for Valentines Day!
8. YETI RAMBLER, YETI COOLER, YETI BEER HOLDER
I cannot say enough great things about this line. It truly is like magic! Whether it's the rambler, the beer holder or the cooler... you have NEVER seen anything keep something cold for so long! You can put ice in the cup or cooler in the morning and it's still there in the afternoon! They aren't cheap but they last forever and are worth every penny!
RAMBLER - Hold any beverage - hot or cold!
COOLER - Fill it with Ice, fill with his favorite beverages and he is good for the ENTIRE day!!! Available in different sizes.
BEER HOLDER - Holds any canned beverage and keeps it cold all day! Beer, soda, sparkling water, anything that comes in a can will fit in this container! Perfect for days at the lake or beach!
9. PERSONALIZED GRILLING TRAY - OUR FAMILY IS FLIPPING AWESOME
Love this so much! You can add all your family members name to this tray, a perfect keepsake to use summer after summer!
10. MAN GRATE
The perfect gift for the man who loves to grill! A cast iron grate that sits on top of you grill - he will get the same steak house quality found at a restaurant, with perfect sear marks and even cooking. Virtually non-stick, just oil before use. Available in different sizes to fit your current BBQ.
11. PERSONALIZED PHOTO MUG & BOOK
My hubby is a big fan (although he may not admit it) of anything with a personal touch. Shutterfly has an amazing Valentines selection at a great price point. You can choose a coffee mug or make him a photo book - all personalized and super easy! You just drag and drop your photos onto their pre-existing templates. The mugs they have this year are amazing. I love giving gifts like this because it's a reminder year after year of the year it was given!
12. WHAT HAPPENS IN ---- GARAGE, STAYS IN THE GARAGE SIGN
This is a fun and inexpensive way to personalize something for the man who loves to spend time in his garage! Let him know that you think his garage is as important and sacred as he does (we all know you don't but it's the thought that counts!)
13. PERSONALIZED WALL MOUNTED BOTTLE OPENER
Another cute and inexpensive gift but with a personal touch. This would be perfect to hang on a back deck, near a BBQ, a dock on the lake, a garage, anywhere your man and his friends would be cracking open a beer!
14. NFL DRINKWARE
For the Sports Fan! Get an array of drinkware with his favorite team logo on it. The reason I like this brand is that they aren't cheesy and the product quality will be great! If you're buying glasses ALWAYS buy 2! 1 is too lonely!
I hope you have found this helpful and it's given you an idea or two for the perfect gift. Valentine's Day is truly a time when "it's the thought that counts" should hold true. Use your words, be specific, men want to feel appreciated and needed above anything else!
Happy Shopping! xoxo
