Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and if you’re anything like me, you probably don’t have the slightest clue what to get him.
Whether you’ve been with your significant other for years or you just recently started dating, finding the perfect V-Day gift can often be difficult. Since it’s celebrated right after Christmas and Bini’s birthday, I often find myself all out of ideas struggling to find the ideal AFFORDABLE present that will express how much I love him while keeping within budget.
To prevent you from going through countless hours online or walking the mall frantically in search of that incredible gift, I’ve compiled a list of ideas from past V-days to recent finds that will suit your needs perfectly.
If you’re going for a more sentimental feel this V-day, how about creating a photo collage and framing it for your partner or a playlist with all your favorite love songs. Both gifts are inexpensive and will mean a great deal to your boo.
The Amazon Echo Dot is your assistant as an AI(artificial intelligence). It allows you to make calls, check the weather, make requests from dinner ideas to Uber rides and so much more… the best part is that it’s completely hands-free. ($40)
For all the iPhone lovers that have to charge their phone continually, how about getting your partner a Floureon Solar Charger/PortablePower Bank! This is super cool and will have him grinning from ear to ear…imagine he never has to ask for a charger again. The best part is, it’s completely wireless and electricity free. ($12.99)
Turn your room in your house into a movie theater with this Projector and Speaker Gift Set. ($150.00)
There is something so sexy about a man that smells good. I especially love the scent it leaves on me after a good hug. Try any one of these colognes for that effect (warning: some of these costs could break the bank).
What does any music lover need? Earphones. Not just any earphones though, they need to be able to block the world out and feel the music through their vines. These particular Powerbeats 3 Wireless Earphones do just that. ($99.00)
Nothing says I believe in your dreams more than gifting a man who loves the skies with his own flight lessons. A real chance to take on the world from above. The Washington International Flight Academy often has specials on Groupon where they will give one 30-minute discovery flight and 30 minutes of ground instruction for less than $145.00. If the deal is not available, their prices are still reasonable.
If he is looking to track his workouts, measure his calorie in-take vs. out-take, and check his heart rate, the Fitbit is the best way to go.I love how it does everything from tracking my sleep to notifying me when I need to get up and exercise. ($149.95)
How cute would your partner look in a bathrobe with his initials on it? It’s comfortable, freeing and the personalized addition will melt his heart. ($52.49)
Want to treat your boo while treating yourself too… how about getting a couples’ massage. If you live in the Washington DC area, try Relache Spa and Salon located at Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center.Their couple’s retreat is overlooking the Potomac River.
