I got an email yesterday from one of my readers asking why I didn’t include what gift to buy for the guys in my last post about the perfect Valentines gift. Oops, my bad! What can I say except that I’m a typical Aussie bloke and for us it’s more about the women. Heck, I don’t remember ever getting a Valentines gift and I sure as hell don’t feel like I’m missing out either. I know better than not give one to the wife though because if I did I’d be paying for it in one way or another
One thing for sure is that most guys I know don’t want flowers so forget getting him roses. Some guys may like chocolate but getting Chocolate as a Valentines gift is not something I would recommend. Too wimpish for my taste, but heck if you think your guy would love it then you go for it girl.
What Is The Best Valentines Gift For Him
So, what is the best Valentines gift for him? This all depends on how well you know your guy. Some people know without thinking what to get because they are so tuned in to the person they love. Others, and it may not be their fault as their other half may not be the sort to show their innermost feelings, may need to try to subtly extract from them what it is they need or want. I explained how to do this in my post about being a Gift Detective.
For example, you may be sitting with him in the car and notice him complaining about the quality of the car radio. If that’s true then you can wow him with a you beaut PIONEER AVH-X1500 DVD which comes complete with a touch screen. You have to admit it looks pretty awesome? But this may be a bit out of your price range but not to worry, you could always get him a POWER ACOUSTIK PD-450 Single DIN Multimeadia Source with Motorized Detachable 4.5-Inch Oversize LCD Touchscreen which is about a third of the price and still looks pretty cool. If neither of those appeal to you the you could always go online and check out what Car Audio Center has to offer.
Even if you don’t feel comfortable about grilling him to try and work out what to get him getting him something for the car is always a good option. Just have a good look at is and see if there is something he needs. Do the seat covers look a bit old and tacky then new seat covers would be a good option. I’ve found that the search facility at the Auto Parts Warehouse is a great way to browse for the right car accessories. They even have a live chat feature in case you need a little help with something.
Your Valentine doesn’t have a car or isn’t interested in them. Not to worry, here are some other great gift ideas.
Casio Men’s Watch: This isn’t just any watch either, its also acts as a TV, cable box or VCR remote allowing him to change stations, adjust the volume and even turn the TV on or off. If he loves to play gags on people he’ll love this guy.
Monster Gratitude In-Ear Headphones: Most guys these days have iPhones or some other you beaut smart phone but what they all lack is decent headphones to give the great sound they deserve. If they love their music then they’ll love these headphones.
Braven BZ650SBA 650 Wireless Bluetooth Speaker: Still keeping with great sound this unit is for those who don’t love shoving things in their ear but still love to listen to music from their bluetooth enabled device, great music with no wires attached
GoPro HD HERO3: Absolutely great for the active go anywhere bloke. Doesn’t matter if he’s into cars, motorcycles, skydiving or surfing the GoPro will be his perfect companion, except for you of course, allowing him to take shots that would otherwise have been impossible.
If you guy is always talking about travelling you may consider checking out some great travel books at the Travel And Outdoor Book Centre. Better still, why not surprise him with a romantic weekend getaway? There’s nothing that a guy loves better than spending some time with the person he loves, especially if he thinks it’s going to lead to that little extra something, you know what I mean?
Of course every guy is different which is why becoming a good gift detective is the best way of getting the perfect gift. Still, I hope I’ve given you some good ideas. As to the guys out there, why not get involved and leave a comment telling us what you would like for Valentines.
