5 Gifts to Give Your Guy for Valentine’s Day
Muddled Millennial Gift Guide
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and you know what that means? It is time to hit the stores and buy something nice for your man. If you are not the type of girl who comes up with the gift months ahead and has a ton of ideas on her mind, you are probably panicking right now, because you don’t want to buy just anything and find yourself in front of your loved one who’s looking at you with a fake smile and saying the gift is “OK”. Even though Valentine’s Day is all about celebrating love and appreciation of one another, it is also about knowing your significant-other well, and you are showing that by choosing a very special gift you know he will love. Because of that, we’ll give you some tips according to specific interests, hobbies and preferences your man could have, and you can take it from there.
If he is a bookworm
Books are often the greatest gift you can give to someone, but only if that someone is really into reading and collecting books. There are also dozens of other book-related gifts you can give to your book aficionado. If you have noticed that your significant other significantly enjoys reading and loves all-things-about-books, you are lucky because you have plenty of options. Go through his book collection and try to find out what genres and writers he likes. See what books are missing in his assortment and rush to the bookstore to get them. If this is too ordinary for you, or you have already bought him a ton of books, you can always go a step further: get him an interesting book holder or bookshelf; find the first edition of his favorite book; get a book signed by his favorite author; organize a tour based on places from his favorite book; print a poster of a book cover he likes…
If he is a gadget freak
We live in a marvelous age where there is a gadget for everything, and while some girls may love gadgets just as much as men, it is no secret that many men are obsessed with them. If you are in a relationship with one of them, you have an easy task: find a gadget he doesn’t have but would love to use. That can be something as simple and mundane as a Bluetooth speaker or something more sophisticated like a lucid dreaming mask. The latter one is a really cool gift which enables the user to get a sort of control over his dreams, by creating visual anomalies with flashing red lights and high-end technology. How awesome is that?
If he’s struck by wanderlust
There aren’t many people who don’t like to travel, and whether your other half is traveling often because of work or wanderlust, he will always need some Go Travel accessories that will make his experience more pleasant and safe. All you need to do is to determine what kind of traveler he is, and what he needs the most. If he is passionate about backpacking, camping and other open-air and nature-loving adventures, you can never go wrong with some equipment like backpacks, sleeping bags, etc. Every travel geek would fall in love with any one of those accessories.
And if he is fashionable too…
Men’s fashion is at its highest point right now, and there is almost no man on the planet who is ashamed of admitting that he likes to dress well (and there is no reason for that). If you are lucky enough to have a fashionable man by your side, you can let your imagination run wild. Shirts, t-shirts, and footwear are just scratching the surface here. You can try with a new briefcase, leather backpack, jewelry, wristwatch, or if he’s into vintage style, a fedora or anything else inspired by Mad Men.
If he likes to take things into his own hands
Do-it-yourself will never be a bygone practice, and even though it is sometimes reduced to the mere act of changing the light bulb, a lot of men still enjoy rolling up their sleeves, going to the garage, making some repairs or building something out of scratch. If you’ve got yourself one of these charming handymen, just try to listen when he talks about what tools he uses and what he needs. If you still can’t tap into this uncharted territory, feel free to ask for advice in a hardware store. We’re sure anything you get will entice him.
These were just some ideas that will spark your imagination right before Valentine’s Day. If you still can’t decipher this complicated riddle, feel free to ask for one of his friends for advice.
