Valentine’s Day: Gift Guide for Him

Jan 30, 2017

Grilling Set | Swim Trunks | Duffle Bag | Personalized Cuff Links | Adidas Tennis Shoes

Other than Mack’s birthday and perhaps Christmas time, there really isn’t any other designated time of the year to spoil him. Although most men probably don’t want or need to be spoiled in any special way, it’s important to acknowledge all they do for us. This Valentine’s Day I rounded up some items that I know he will love but immediately tell me he doesn’t need. Wives to humble husbands totally understand this! Here’s why I picked these items for Mack and why they’re a good idea for your favorite guy:

Grilling Set– Spring is just around the corner and we can’t wait. Mack enjoys to grill and basically grills dinner for us every week! I really don’t know what to eat for dinner if he doesn’t make me dinner (#pathetic). But my point is that he loves to grill and needs some new tools to do just that! If your guy likes to grill this set is a great gift idea and one that can be used a ton throughout spring and summer.

Swim Trunks– We live just a bike ride away from the beach! Again, in anticipation for spring and summer, I am thinking it may be nice to treat Mack to a new set of swim trunks for our beach days that are quickly approaching. Not to mention, this gingham print is just so cute! No one can turn down a new set of swim trunks, right? 

Duffle Bag- Mack goes to the gym to workout every single day! But he really needs a new workout bag, and has yet to find one he likes (or maybe he doesn’t want a new one as he still uses his high school football bag). Either way, I think this Herschel duffle bag is a great option- it’s simple, the same style that he currently uses and it’s fresh and clean. Let’s hope this one passes the test haha! Even if your husband doesn’t hit the gym daily, a new duffle bag for travel is a useful gift option.

Personalized Cuff Links– These cuff links are a sweet and simple gift but something every guy needs. I love the personalized touch that show extra thoughtfulness. Also, in my opinion, cuff links are one of those things that often walk away after just a few wears so an extra pair never hurt anybody!

Adidas Sneakers– I LOVE these classic Adidas that are making a comeback! I think this all white pair is versatile, welcomes warm temps and can be dressed up or down depending on what the plans for the day entail. Not to mention, they’re also super comfy and on-trend (and under $100).

Whether you’re married, have a boyfriend or simply want to spoil a guy-friend on February 14th, any of the above options will show you love and appreciate them without being too lovey dovey or over the top. Now, guys if you’re reading this… us girls WANT all the lovey dovey, okay? Just so we’re clear haha.

Have a great Monday! Wishing you a productive week ahead. Thank you for stopping by today!
