I’ve always LOVED Valentine’s Day. Growing up, we had the Valentine’s Man visit, which I learned as an adult was not something every family had. Ha! And the Valentine Man still finds me – a package arrived from him (i.e. my mom) yesterday. 🙂 I kept meaning to do a post with Valentine’s Day gift ideas but time got away from me and I thought it may be too late. But then I got a couple comments in the last few days asking for ideas, so I thought I’d do a quick post with last minute Valentine’s Day gifts for him! Check out my Christmas Gift Guide for ideas too. Those will require rush shipping or in-person shopping, but you could always give a card saying that the gift is coming. (I’ve done that more than I like to admit.)
This is something I know Tommy would never buy for himself, but would love. And I love giving gifts that people want but won’t buy for themselves, especially something they don’t necessarily “need.” It feels like more a treat that way. For you local WS people, I recommend Ashley Holdren for sports massage.
This has been quite the topic among our friend’s lately – pedicures for guys. And it turns out every guy that’s had one LOVES it, even if they were very hesitant and had to be dragged there the first time. And since your man obviously won’t go alone, you’ll get a pedicure out of this too. 😉 If you’re local, try Elite Nails by Whole Foods. It’s rarely packed so your man won’t feel too self conscious.
This small wallet is one of Tommy’s very favorite gifts I’ve given him. It definitely won’t arrive in time if you order at this point, especially if you monogram it. But I didn’t order it on time when I gave it to him for his birthday last year, so I put things in a card that could go in his wallet and told him it was coming. I included a a picture of Maizey and a gift card for coffee. 🙂 Here’s a post with more details on the TGT wallet. He LOVES that thing and all his friends ordered one too after they saw his.
Find an intro to beer brewing class or a knife-skills class at a local kitchen store. (Local WS folks – I think Foothills does a beer class and I know Southern Home & Kitchen has a knife skills class.) Buy a round of golf at a course he’s never played. Get concert tickets for a band that’s visiting your area in the next few months. Plan a weekend getaway. If you’re local to NC, the Whitewater Center near Charlotte is really fun and worth a trip. Something you can do together is always fun and memorable. And spending time together with the one you love is really the best gift of all. Cheesy but oh so true.
