Valentine's Thoughts & Gift Ideas for Him

K and I don't usually buy gifts for each other on Valentine's Day. Often the money is well spent on a nice dinner date right before or after February 14th. We never venture out for dinner on actual Valentine's Day because of the mad rush and long wait lines at restaurants.

I know Valentine's day is not liked by everyone, whether you're single, dating, or married. When I was single, I used to call it "Valium Times Day" as a joke.

As I've gotten older, I think of Valentine's as a way to celebrate and express LOVE beyond. Not just to my significant other but also to acknowledge my support system and send them notes of appreciation. A cute card with some genuine words, I think that means a lot!

The Gift Guide For Him

After smelling the Azzaro 'Wanted' Cologne in a sample page of a magazine, I knew I wanted that scent around me.  The last cologne I bought for K a few years ago (Versace 'Eros') smells just as amazing in it's own way.

Of course every guy has their own style and interests but these are some things that intrigued me from reading magazines and browsing Amazon. This gift guide is just as good for birthdays and other special occasions "for him", not just Valentine's Day.

I thought the Wool Running Shoes were perfect for outdoor activity/running in these colder months and the Philips Norelco Shaver was a practical gift for grooming at home.

The Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote sounds perfect to get the most out of TV for Amazon Prime members/TV lovers and Johnnie Walker Black Label is a nice scotch to sip and unwind after a long work day.

Have a wonderful weekend!


  1. We love our fire stick and you cannot go wrong with Johnnie Walker! Have a fabulous weekend, send me sunshine, we have a blizzard! xoxo

  2. My fire stick is a life saver.

  3. We do the exact same thing for Valentine’s Day! We just enjoy a nice dinner out either before or after as a way to just spend time together. We don’t usually buy gifts but I know that Chris would love the fire stick!

  4. We love the fire stick! Such a good gift idea. We usually do a dinner out to a new local place the weekend before or after :) too busy on the actual day! Have a good weekend!

  5. We are all about low key valentine's day with a nice dinner in and no gifts except for some candy over here. But I love your ideas. Those shoes are so fun and that black label would be appreciated by any guy!

  6. Is the Amazon fire stick like google chrome cast? Is that why my husband can't use google chrome cast with his fire? If you can help me figure this out, I might have just figured out his Valentine's Day gift, lol.

  7. All such great ideas! Both of our birthdays are so close to Vday, we don't usually do gifts, but this year I am getting him a little something since it's our last one together before baby :)

  8. These are all great ideas! I need to get myself a fire stick for Valentine's day, hee hee!

  9. Great list! We don't usually do gifts either but I think my husband got me something so now I feel like I need to!
