Valentine's Day for Him

Does anyone else stress about what to get your significant other, namely your husband that is as much of a redneck as mine is, for Valentine's Day?

Anyone? No? Yeah, me neither.

This is our second Valentine's Day together - our first one as a married couple. I don't know if it's supposed to be uber special because our one year anniversary is next month!!

Last year, Blake was at tech school for Valentine's Day so I drove on over to spend the weekend with him and this is what he got me.
There was even candles around the room too. He's a romantic softie deep down :)

Last year I got him a bunch of his favorite foods because he really couldn't use anything while he was at training. I'm more of a practical gift giver.

As I was thinking about what I can get Blake this year (and I've honestly been thinking about it for a few months - even before Christmas), I'm again going for practical and a combination of his favorites

Blake, if you're reading this: ABORT MISSION! YOU SHALL NOT PASS!
Side and completely unrelated note: I just noticed I've used this little banner thing in two of my other posts (here and here)... I just like how it looks okay!!

Alabama Wallet: I've honestly been eyeing this wallet since I moved here in June. And I still haven't gotten it for him. Mostly because I didn't have any income coming in. Now that I'm a big girl and actually earn the big bucks till September, I think I can finally afford this wallet for his "big" Valentine's Day gift :) If you have a sports fan guy, these would be a perfect gift!

Milky way: You have course have to include your guy's favorite candy!

Boulevard: Boulevard is Blake's favorite beer that's brewed in Missouri and he's pumped that we finally got a store that sells it. I'm thinking of pulling together my crafting skills and putting this together.

SOA Mug: Perfect to go along with his beer. You gotta have somewhere to put it right?? His friend has the glasses and he always makes a point to tell me how he wishes he had one.

Wounded Warrior Camelbak: Just so that he can stop stealing my Sigma Kappa Camelbak. Actually, I might end up getting one for myself while I'm at it #notsorry

Obviously this is geared towards my husband's taste and what he likes. But this is just a basis for what your own guy may like: Fan gear, candy and favorite beer are really the great go-tos :)

  1. Great picks! I love giving a small gift, along with a card, and just doing something special together on Valentine's Day.

  2. These are great ideas!! I got Mike a Beer of the Month subscription one year and he loved it. And they even had a craft beer selection so every 3 months we got 4 different kinds of beers to try. It was awesome....and I got to partake a little, too. lol.

  3. Guys are always so hard to buy for... candy is always a great idea!!!

  4. Love these, such great ideas. Lil gifts are the way to go. No pressure!

  5. All of these are such great ideas! I got James a mens toiletry bag because he's been traveling a lot for work and throws all his bathroom supplies in a ziplock bag right now, and then I'm putting this book ( ) and fake rose petals and chocolates inside of it...

  6. Sigh. I haven't even started. I even did Christmas on Christmas Eve. These past few months have just been crazy for us. In more ways than one. I'm amazed that you are already done!
