Things I love. I love sitting down to write a new BLOG post. I love the rush of creativity that overflows EVERYWHERE. I love the month of February. I love celebrating the little things. And I LOVE, LOVE! This post is a favorite of mine as it is all about gift ideas and inspiration for the men in your life! Wondering what you should get your significant other for Valentine’s Day? Well, lovely readers of gracefulandfree, I have you covered! Bringing you and updated guide of all the things to gift your sweetie this Valentine’s Day with the Valentine’s Day Gift Guide: For Him, From Her!
Lets just get started right away and let me just take us there! One of the sweetest things you can get your man is some intimates! And the story behind this is the sweetest! My sweet and beloved Mimi, who passed away a little over a year ago, always gave my Grandad a pair of boxers for every single Valentine’s Day. It was there little thing, that I honestly don’t think I was even supposed to know about it. However one sweet weekend spent with them, and a little too much wine to drink and my sweet Grandad spilled all the secrets! Now, every single Valentine’s Day I smile as I think about this sweet gift to give your man. After 60 years of marriage, it still has my Grandad smiling. Found some favorites that are quality + cute and sharing below. This Valentine’s Day be sure to gift your honey some intimates, a gift from Her, for Him, that will most definitely be appreciated!
This Valentine’s Day gift idea is a GOOD one. If your man is anything like mine, then he is a big fan of sports and music. An intentional and purposeful gift, from Her, for Him, that will most definitely be received and loved well are tickets to a favorite thing. Whether it’s tickets to a baseball game, or next season’s football opener, or tickets to a favorite musician, tickets are a way to truly show love and appreciation for your man. Want to go even bigger, find a free weekend and deals on flights, and purchase two plane tickets to a city and spend the weekend exploring together. I truly believe the best gifts are the ones that create memories!
Is it just me, or is a man reading a book sexy? Maybe that’s just the teacher in me, but when I spot J curled up with a book, it puts the biggest smile on my face and warms my heart. Additionally, gifting books is such an intentional way to tell your loved one how much you care. Books can be gifted as a way to say, I love you, I believe in you, and I support you to dream as far and wide as possible! Especially books that encourage deeper and more intentional living, that is an absolute win! Sharing some personal favorites that I love (and J is currently reading OR on the list to read next!) Sharing some favorite recommendations right here!
Can I let you in on a secret? Men don’t like to shop, yet alone to buy nice things. Maybe your guys are different, but I always accept a challenge when trying to expand J’s wardrobe! And one thing I have noticed, men LOVE quality lounge wear. The quality joggers, sweatpants, and pajamas that take a weekend in to the NEXT level! Plus, it makes for the sweetest gift. Attach a sweet card that plans a weekend OR morning in full of all the cuddles and snuggles, and your Valentine’s Gift for Him, from Her, is absolutely set.
I love making little collections. Think of a self-love or self-care kit. What better way to say I love you than to gift a precious bundle of all the things to make the personal moments even better! Add in a small toiletry bag to store everything in and your gift is set. Think of fancy face wash, beard oil, quality bar soap, comfy socks, mints and anything else you think would be of quality and you’re set! Add in a personal note, and this Valentine’s gift for him is next level.
I know the girls are always journal and pen obsessed, which is why I believe in a journal and pen as the BEST gift for your man for Valentine’s Day. Little idea here, write in a sweet message on the inside cover, or first page encouraging and building up your love and allow this journal to be a place for your honey to cultivate all the aspirations, inspiration and dreams!
Finally, last on the Valentine’s Day Gift Guide, from Her, for Him is the timeless gift of a watch. This gift is a classic one, but for good reason as it is a sweet way to say a simple, but meaningful, I love you in a classic and timeless way.
Well friends, I hope this gift guide has been a source of inspiration for you as you plan out your final Valentine’s Day inspiration. Be sure to check out other great posts on all things Valentine’s Day, including the Ultimate Gift Guide for Galentine’s Day!
