Genius Valentine's Day Gift Ideas for Men

Venus Trapped in Mars

I've teamed up with Helene today for our second annual (we will go ahead and be optimistic with the word annual) Valentine's Day Linkup! We would love for you to linkup any Valentine's Day related posts with us, and hop around to make some new blog friends! 

Let's be real here, Valentine's Day is for women. Guys hate it. They tell us they hate it. They participate because we make them. 


Man: "Why do I need a day to tell you I love you? I tell you that everyday!" Yada Yada Yada....

But here is the thing ladies, we should really be using this to our advantage. So often, we give the man in our life things they actually want, in hopes that they will one day really LIKE Valentine's Day as much as we do. Heck, I wrote a whole post on giving your guy exactly what he wants on Valentine's Day. 

What was I thinking?! I was doing it all wrong. So now I've taken a new approach to Valentine's Day Gifting. Here are my suggestions on what to give your man this Valentine's Day!



1. A Couples Massage
Oh? You don't want that? Well fiiiiiiiine I will use it if it comes down to that. 
I'm sure I will be very sore when I'm done receiving two massages. Just remember, that is on you. 

2. A Pedicure
Oh? You don't want that? Well fiiiiiiine I will use it if it comes down to that.
I went out of the way to find you a pedicure that didn't include polish, because I love you that much. I'm sure they will end up charging me extra when I ask to have polish. That is on you, I'll need a few extra dollars for my troubles. 

3. A Wine Tasting for Two
Oh? You don't want to go with me to that? Well fiiiiiiine I will use it if it comes down to that. 
Can you at the very least drive me there and pick me back up since I have to drink for two???!

4. Two Taylor Swift Concert Tickets
Oh? You don't want to go with me to that? Well fiiiiiiine I will use it if it comes down to that. 
The concert is October 17th!! I just hope that I can find someone to take that other ticket with such short notice. Gosh, it is going to be so rude asking people so last minute. 

5. A Starbs Gold Card
Oh? You don't want that? Well fiiiiiiine I will use it if it comes down to that. 
How would I know that you hate coffee? Just because you tell me you hate coffee every time I offer doesn't mean that you don't like coffee. The line for the drive through is very long when I'm on my way to work, which is the only time I will be able to use this gift card. I will be very late to work and may get fired. All because you didn't want this starbs gold card. If I get fired, that is on you. Man, the risks I take being your girlfriend....

6. Festive Candles with Assorted Scents like Apple Orchard and Rosafolia
Oh? You don't want that? Well fiiiiiiine I will use it if it comes down to that. 
If my apartment catches on fire, that is all on you. I didn't ask to have these candles all over my home. You put them here against my will. 

7. A Puppy... or 12 Puppies
Oh? You don't want them? Well fiiiiiiine I will take them it if it comes down to that. 
I will give them a home out of the goodness of my heart. But the vet bills and the going out to poop and pee twice a day nonsense, that is your responsibility. They are your 12 puppies, not mine. I'm just taking them to snuggle and love as a favor to you. You're welcome. Amazing girlfriend party of 1. 

8. A Case of 100 Mason Jars
Oh? You don't want them? Well fiiiiiiine I will take them it if it comes down to that. 
I was going to spend the whole weekend in bed with you for Valentine's Day, but now, I clearly can't do that because I have a very busy day of Pinterest crafts that HAVE to happen because someone *cough* you *cough* didn't want nor appreciate these mason jars. 

9. A New Kate Spade iPhone 6Plus Case
Oh? You don't want them? Well fiiiiiiine I will take them it if it comes down to that. 
I'm sorry you have an iPhone 4. 1992 called, no pun intended, they want their smart phone back. You should have an iPhone 6. But, because I like you so much, I'll hold onto this for you until you finally upgrade. No, it's fine. I don't mind. That is how much I love you. 

10. Dallas Mavericks Playoff Tickets
Oh? You don't want them? Well fiiiiiiine I will take them it if it comes down to that. 
Oh... wait.... you do want these? Sorry I tried to give you 9 other presents that you turned down, so I assumed this was a no too. So I invited my mom already. My bad. 


And there you have it.
Valentine's Gift Ideas for the man in your life. 
Let me know how those ideas work out for you!

  2. Lol I can't argue with this because I totally took this approach this year...technically it's something that requires both of us to use (bowchickawowwow), but I definitely had selfish reasons!!

  5. Haha I love these! My Valentine's Day is so up in the air right now, I hope my guy doesn't buy me anything because I didn't get him anything haha. Hopefully the fact that I'm driving him two hours to an airport because he's leaving for Mexico for a week counts as a gift.

  9. I bought a groupon for a wine tasting for two, so the boyfriend is definitely coming with me to that on Tuesday. We are, though, going to a UT basketball game on Valentine's Day, so I feel like everyone wins!

  14. Genius. Absolutely genius. I may have to try the couples massage thing. Treat yourself from time to time but disguise it as a gift for him. Muahaha.
