Men aren’t always such an open book when it comes to gift ideas. No matter how many times he says, “I don’t really want anything,” you know a nice surprise wouldn’t go down badly on the big day; whether it’s a birthday, anniversary or Christmas, finding the perfect romantic gift isn’t always easy. So, the following gifts for him will help you say “I love you” in a whole new way!
1. Crate of beer
We’re not suggesting a 24-crate of bog-standard lager, but rather, find a variety pack of a beer he didn’t know he loved. This could be a local ale, or perhaps beer from a country you’ve visited that’ll bring back romantic memories from your time together. Beer hampers are readily available, and the majority come with added extras to make the gift even more special.
2. Concert tickets
If you know he loves a certain act or band, and you know they’re coming to town soon, pick him up a pair of concert tickets for the two of you. If music isn’t his thing, maybe a couple of tickets to the football is the way to go.
3. Play date
Sometimes the old-school activities are the best. From laser tag to go karting, to the bowling alley and arcade, there’s plenty of fun activities to get involved in. This can be the perfect nostalgic day out for the man that’s really just a big kid at heart. Just be sure to let him win a couple games – you can’t have a good time if he’s being a sore loser!
In the same way that a new silver bracelet would be the perfect romantic gift for her, a watch is sure to please. With so many styles and materials out there – from metal links to leather straps and even electronic watches – finding the best match shouldn’t be a problem. You can even have it engraved with a personal message to make it that much more special.
5. City break
Getting away from the stresses of the day-to-day is one of the best romantic gift ideas. Why not catch a short flight to a beautiful European city and just enjoy wandering around in each other’s arms? Perhaps you could even surprise him with the tickets a few days beforehand – or even on the day if you’re feeling brave!
Splashing out on an expensive cologne is a great way of showing how much he means to you. Whether it’s topping up when he’s running low, buying his favourite scent that he keeps talking about, or getting him to try something new, it’s always a thoughtful idea.
7. Massage kit
Mark any special occasion with this extra special gift. A massage is at once relaxing and romantic, the perfect gift for an anniversary or Valentine’s Day, you can make it even more personal by adding a handwritten ‘one free massage’ token with the set.
8. Shaving kit
Personal grooming may not scream romance, but You can’t go wrong with this tried and tested gift. Although you don’t just have to get a razor and some blades – you could also gift him a range of moisturisers and a wash bag to keep it all in! Make the gift extra special by having the razor handle engraved with a personal message.
9. Photo book
For an anniversary or birthday, a well-made photo book is just the right thing! With this, you can put all the photos of the year’s adventures together in one place, making it easy for you both to reminisce. On top of that, you can add little captions to each photo; perhaps you could say what you were thinking about when the photo was taken.
10. Dinner for two
The height of romance, treating your man to a meal is one of the best ways to celebrate any occasion, or simply to show you love him. Whether it’s going to the fanciest restaurant in town, your favourite eatery, or perhaps where you had your first date, it’s sure to be a night that he won’t forget.
