What should I gift my boyfriend on Valentine’s Day?
Finding the best Valentine’s gift for a boyfriend or husband is tricky. The secret to getting it right is to select something that’s just the right mix of sassy, practical and saucy. You want him to feel thought of and appreciated – but also at least a little bit lusted after.
If in doubt, go for a silly gift that will raise a smile – laughter is an aphrodisiac, after all. Failing that, focus on his passions overall. A foodie fella will definitely appreciate receiving a cooking kit, a gourmet meal or a hamper full of tasty treats he loves – plus you’ll get to enjoy them too… bonus! A man who enjoys a drink will definitely welcome a box of special beer or a decent bottle of his favourite tipple as a token of your love. And if you’re really stuck, think about the things he enjoys doing and go for an experience day or pick a personalised gift that will mean that little bit more to him than something off the shelf.
