With Valentine’s Day coming up most of us are rushing around planning the perfect date or night out with friends. Whatever your plans for the day might be perhaps you’d like to buy a gift for either your partner or even a great friend in your life! Boys can be tough to shop for but we’ve got some suggestions that could help you narrow down what to buy him!
Consider his interests
Make a list of things he likes to do or things that he loves. A gift need not be romantic, but the thought behind the gift will show that you care. Does he like to spend time outdoors or is he someone who prefers books and coffee over sports and video games? Perhaps you could get tickets to a game, that way you not only get to plan a date but get to take him someplace he loves and that he’s completely at home. Alternatively you could also by sports gear! Do some research on a men sportswear online store to see what’s within your budget!
Place an order for some sports gear or t-shirts from a men sportswear online store that you actually like so that you get to subtly exercise some control over his wardrobe!
Pay attention to the things he points out while shopping
While he may not particularly enjoy shopping pay attention to items that catch his eye while the two of you are window shopping. Even if it’s something random or bizarre like an elephant shaped cookie jar, consider buying it if it caught his eye for long enough. A gift like that is both funny, cute and caring and will give you’ll a silly story to narrate every time someone asks about it. Has he mentioned that there’s a book, movie or game that he would really like to read or play? Take note and track it down for him! Or maybe there’s something he’s always wanted to do or buy that you don’t like. Like a bright orange lava lamp or to go sky diving. A gift like that will show how much you care about what he likes and will definitely take him by surprise!
While each of these gift options are thoughtful and cute, you could also go the handmade route and make some homemade chocolate fudge or brownies! Any man in your life will appreciate and love a gift like that, and wrapping them up with tissue paper and a ribbon can turn a simple gift into something romantic and cute!
