Valentine’s Gifts for him – show your man how much you love him
Ever feel like your other half is impossible to shop for, especially on a budget?
My husband only likes three things – gadgets, food and his kids – and me of course. 🙂
But, I find having to shop for him very challenging. Many times, my husband actually has the gift idea in mind!
So, every time a holiday or my husband’s birthday rolls around, I want to get him something special, but it can be hard to tell what he wants or needs – especially since he may already have the things he wants!
And Valentine’s Day is no different.
Now that our twins are 8 years old, our Valentine’s day will be filled with crafts, candy and gifts!
If you’re stuck for ideas, I came up with 56 pretty awesome Valentine’s Day gifts for men for under $25.
Now…I have to make sure my husband doesn’t read this post!
7 Valentine’s Gifts to Make Him Feel Pampered
While many husbands might not admit to loving a day at the spa or bathing with your lavender body wash, we all like to be pampered from time to time, right?
These gifts will help your husband indulge while still feeling like the man he is.
1. Burt’s Bees Men’s Gift Set
I love that this set is all natural and doesn’t have a strong scent. If your hubby doesn’t like strong scents or is sensitive, try this Burt’s Bee sampler.
- Shave Cream
- Body Wash
- Hand Salve
- Original Beeswax Lip Balm
2. InnoGear Aromatherapy Essential Oil Diffuser Ultrasonic Cool Mist Diffusers
An aromatherapy diffuser is a bit girly, right?
But, it’s a great tool for those who suffer from middle of the day migraines or for those who have a hard time drifting off to sleep. Do your research to find out which essential oils are best for your loved one.
3. Southpole Men’s Basic Fleece Marled Jogger Pant
I’m guilty of this. Since I’m working on losing my baby weight, I only wear yoga pants!
But, I bet guys are secretly the same way. Check out these joggers – they are extra comfy for weekend relaxing.
4. The Body Shop 2-Piece Shave Away Kit
This set promises a close shave and comes with a nifty shaving brush. And the best thing about this shave cream?
It’s pain-free, paraben-free and the razor glides effortlessly. Men swear by this set!
5. Scentsational Tobacco Vanilla Scented Natural Soy Candle
What’s great about this candle is it’s for the whole house.
After a long day working and cleaning up and taking care of your little one, light this candle and relax – without any frufru smells!
6. RockDove Two-Tone Memory Foam Warm House Slippers
Giving a pair of slippers may not be romantic, but your significant other will definitely enjoy them when they need to slip on something quick and warm before taking the trash out or working at home.
And with its indoor/outdoor sole, these slippers will keep hubby safe.
My husband works from home – in the basement – and in the middle of winter, it gets bone-chilling cold down there. Slippers are perfect!
7. Double Edge Single Blade Safety Razor Kit
Here’s another shaving kit that might get your husband excited about shaving.
With a vintage-style razor, this shave kit gives you a close shave like a barber would.
The kit includes extra blades, making it the perfect gift for your bearded husband.
