Skip to comments.Best Valentine gift idea for HIM .....
Posted on 02/01/2013 12:08:36 PM PST by Lizavetta
Valentine's Day is coming up and I'd love to get Freepers' opinions of the best gift idea they've ever heard of for a man .... something that will completely melt him like butter and make him feel like a million bucks.
I know there are plenty of creative and imaginative people on this forum so please help me here .....
My wife bought me a crossbow for our 10th wedding anniversary.
I melted. Heh.
What is the dollar limit?
$100 or so. We’ve both had some tough years financially.
Almost anything that starts with 5.56/.223, .40 or 9 mm. Just the thought of that makes my little heart go pitter patter.
You phrased that so delicately. You are, of course, correct.
There’s always that. Doesn’t cost nothin’ ... goes well with everything.
There’s one answer that is a no-brainer, and doesn’t cost a thing.
Dang, I missed posts 4 & 5 before the mods got them.
I am a woman, so I may not really know for sure....
But, IMO, the best gift would not cost a cent. A note that tells him in heartfelt terms how much you appreciate all the things — big and small — that he has done for you and the kids could go a long way toward making him feel great.
Today’s husbands (and men, in general) are so often not given credit for all that they do for us women and far too often just hear criticism and ingratitude.
I am speaking in general terms, so please don’t think that I am assuming you are one of the whiny ingrates. :)
I missed 4 & 5 also, but common sense tells me it was, as somone else said, FREE and plentyful and (usually) FUN for both.
You can pick up a nice sword for $100.
so he is supposed to take her into custody “in the name of loooooove”?
Send the kids away for the evening, have an indoor candlelight picnic with chocolate covered strawberries, cheeses, various finger foods that are ready to eat, champagne, etc. (in front of the fireplace if you have one.)
I heard a guy (not my husband. lol) say that if a guy’s not horny he’s hungry. So if he’s not horny make him a sandwich. My husband laughed when I told him that.
I always kinda figured if you took care of both he’d probably be pretty happy. Am I wrong in that assumption? (Guys, help me out here. lol)
Want help? Gimmee a sammich. (J/K!)
lol. I don’t need that kind of help. ;)
(Is it really true a guy can do a better job convincing his wife she’s loved if he’s full of baloney? lol)
Speaking from experience... to make my husband smile.. I head to Home Depot or Lowes. Anything you can pour gas into or plug in AND makes this sound... VRMMMMMMMMMMM.. is a winner. Wet/Dry vac, chainsaw, leaf blower... as long as it VRMMMMMMMM’S.. it is therefore manly.
If you don’t want to do that... some meat dish, potatoes, (skip the salad unless your man is unique) and his favorite beer. (I could add a few more secrets, darling, but that is how I ended up with 3 kids... giggle, giggle)
Sorry, it's Vermont Teddy Bear season again and I'm getting brainwashed by the commercials already.
Badee-ah, badee-ah, badeeeee-aaah.
Baseball tickets. My guy also likes dark chocolate and red wine. And computer stuff.
If I had a girlfriend or a wife, I would really be impressed if she got me a rare edition of one of my favorite books. Since you are talking about only $100, it probably cannot be that rare, but something along those lines.
Gallon-size jugs of Tabasco
Really? Not too hard to figure out and it wont cost much at all.
It’s a link to a blog (not mine). But it’s a blog post about bacon. Bacon that is rolled up in pork. And then wrapped in bacon, and of course smoked.
I agree. Many men I know take the same amount of time shopping at a hardware/home improvement store that a woman takes shopping at a department store.
I call it the “hardware store lust” look. Yeah... I’ve seen you guys! Eyes all glassy, mouth slightly open and the smallest bit of drool just hanging out! The new power mowers, the snow blowers, the drills... tempting you! It’s hardware porn.. plain and simple. LOL!
you are absolutely correct
the most horrible teddy bear I ever gave my wife.....hard as a rock and totally un-hugable......who needs a teddy bear you can’t hug....
Get a Disney Duffy bear...the bestest hug-gable bear in the world....
You married quite a woman (mine got me a silencer for my AR-15)! I hope my kids do as well as we did.
I meant a special little gift of some kind.
I believe you are correct in that assumption. I thought your type of the Female species died out with the Dinosaurs or was it the Flappers in the 20’s.
Thanks for sharing. You sound like a wonderful women.
I'm a guy, and I like this better than Tabasco any day of the week.
Well, there are only two things I can think of that make me feel that way, and I'm pretty sure you can whip both of them up for way less than a hundred dollars.
Heh... I got to indulge in a bit of that today, and my wife even paid for it! Only thing better is when your wife pays for your gun porn! LOL
And women think men are so difficult to understand. I am glad you had a good time! Hugs, Mom
“... a special little gift of some kind”.
I know money is tight. Oh boy, do I know MONEY IS TIGHT! What is his favorite food of all time that he doesn’t get a lot of. Is he a steak guy? Is he a lobster guy? Believe me, Lizavetta, whatever you do.. he’ll love. Include a hand written love letter. I know you may laugh.. a love letter? Remember those from our courting days? Write out the top ten reason you love him. He will fully understand that you appreciate him and actually acknowledge the things he does for you. For example, I love how you smell right after a shower. Or, I love that you bring me a cup of coffee. Little things.. that need an acknowledgement. Hugs, Mom
Now, that’s a really good idea. Thanks!
Hmm, might look for that...I’m sure my husband would like it.
My father-in-law did that, and he never got over it, LOL. He LOVED it.
That would definitely work for him ... thanks!
