How to Shop for the Best Valentine's Day Gifts for your Boyfriend
Newsflash: when your sweetie opens up his Valentine's day gift, he'll likely be doing the same thing you do. If you don't want to leave him wondering what socks signify about your love, skip the generic guy gifts and get creative. We've scouted thoughtful Valentine gift ideas for him that mirror his sweetness right back. Lucky for you, these Valentine's Day gifts for a boyfriend show him you think he's the cheese to your macaroni. And he'll end Valentine's Day feeling like he's scored the best girlfriend.
Find the way to your man's heart
Yes, it's through his stomach, but we're not talking gifts from the candy aisle at the grocery store. Take the time to scout out gourmet stepped-up treats (whether he prefers sweet or savory) that will wow his tastebuds. If the last thing he wants to do is cook dinner in his bachelor pad, consider a delicious delivery of food as an unexpected gift.
Style up his space
Some guys are easy to pinpoint when it comes to home decorating styles. Does your beau love nautical elements? Look for Valentine gift ideas for him that include sailcloth or feel inspired by the ocean.
Give him something on his wishlist
Plan ahead and purchase tickets to do something you know he wants to do (maybe you've even said "no" before). From a ballgame to a movie he's been waiting to go see, he'll appreciate how you considered his wishlist, which makes these Valentine gift ideas for him even more special.
Entertain your guy
Look for Valentine's Day gifts for your boyfriend that play to his favorite ways to stay entertained (otherwise known as favorite distractions). Are you dating a music buff or is your dude a diehard baseball fan? Choose a gift that relates to his second love (after you) and you'll score major points.
Swoop in with a gift that's been on his radar
You've spent enough time together to know his pet peeves, that his favorite headphones just broke, or he's been saving up to create the ultimate bar cart. Dudes are not the only ones who can play the white night and save the day. Get a gift that will turn a frown upside-down for your main man.
