Valentine's Day Gifts for the Guys

Alright, I have to admit it: I don't really like Valentine's Day and I never have. Even though I'm a total romantic, I think it's a silly holiday. (I hope I didn't disappoint you all too much with my confession!!) But I can't ignore the fact that it exists and since February 14th is right around the corner, I wanted to share my gift guide for the guys in your lives. I know how difficult it can be to shop for your boyfriends, fiances and husbands, so hopefully this will make it a bit easier!! What do you think of my picks? :)

The North Face ‘Apex Pneumatic’ Jacket - $99. This breathable, waterproof jacket is perfect for guys who love to be active outdoors and look good while doing it.
Marc by Marc Jacobs Stainless Steel Watch - $225. This watch is a perfect combination of sporty and stylish - the rose gold is on trend and unique but the black silicone strap keeps it looking tough and manly.
Boconi ‘Bryant’ Slim Leather Card Wallet - $54. This slim wallet won’t take up much room in his pocket but can still fit his license and all of his credit cards.
Yves Saint Laurent ‘L’Homme’ EDT - $60 for 2oz. Is your guy in need of a new signature scent? I promise he’ll love this sophisticated scent from YSL (and that you’ll love it on him even more!)
Do something fun together. Valentine’s Day isn’t all about spending money on each’s also a great time to try out something new together! Get him tickets to see his favorite band, take a cooking class together or go out for a long hike on the next sunny Saturday afternoon.
NHL 13 for XBox or PS3 - $45. If he’s a gamer and/or a hockey fan, he’ll definitely love the newest NHL game for his console. My boyfriend and I play together all the time and it’s really fun!

Jawbone JAMBOX Wireless Speaker - $200. This little speaker packs a loud punch and comes in 4 fun colors so he can listen to his music anywhere he likes.

Bake him something. My boyfriend always prefers that I bake him something instead of spending money on him. If your guy has favorite flavors, make sure incorporate them into a special V-Day treat that’ll keep his stomach full all day. :) Or, try out my cookie dough filled cupcakes, banana chocolate chip muffins with Nutella filling or mini Oreo cheesecakes....all of them have been man tested and approved! :)


  1. These are great ideas! My mister is incredibly strict with his diet but we're going to cooking something yummy/healthy together.
