FUN Valentine's Day Gift Ideas for Your Spouse!

Hey friends! Please forgive me for my blogging absence, I've been hibernating counting down the days until Spring. Anyone else? Living in the Northeast is BRUTAL this time of year. Thankfully February is a short month, and we have Valentine's Day to keep our minds busy. 


I had a few requests for a "Valentine's Day Gift Guide" for guys, husbands, & boyfriends. But this post could really apply to significant others in general as it's pretty gender neutral;) When it comes to Valentine's Day and anniversaries I tend to think outside of the box. Instead of buying things, I like to DO things. If I do end up spending money on a gift, I like it to be an experience VS. just like, socks or something. 



Valentine's Day is tricky, some people LOVE it and then others LOVE to HATE it. I will happily admit that I love Valentine's Day. Our lives get busy, Nick works crazy hours and that house flipping life ain't always easy. We don't get to spend as much time together as we like and well, with life comes routine. Of course, we tell each other we love each other every day..okay, maybe not EVERYDAY. BUT you get what I'm sayin'. Valentine's Day is a good way to remind me- "HEY! Do something to show the people you love that you love them" And that something has to involve me doing something more than just washing hubby's laundry. Because that's my excuse everyday, I tell you I love you by doing your laundry. HA! 


Nick and I have been together almost 16 years and while it's tough to be creative and find new ideas, I do like to keep things fun. 


1. LET'S GO CAMPING! // I hate CAMPING. I'm not a camper. Nick LOVES Camping. He's a camper. SO. How can I make Valentine's Day special for him while putting together something I hate and he loves? Last year, we had a "Camp Out" at home. It was the easiest date I've ever put together and maybe the most memorable. It also didn't cost a ton of money. Nick is a total "experience" kind of guy because he, like most men, just buys whatever he wants. So these things mean way more to him then anything I could buy for him. I built a fort in our game room, using pillows and old sheets- if you have a tent, even better! Bring it inside! I made Steaks & we had cheesecake (his favorite) for dessert. That's the cool thing about camping inside, you can cook something more glam then hot dogs. Or you could cook hot dogs. I mean, whatever floats your boat. ;) I threw up some string lights, lit some candles and we made smores. I picked up this smores maker and we had so much fun! I think we would totally do this date again because it was so low key but still super special. 



2. A GIFT FOR THE SENSES // The year before last I gave Nick the gift of sense. Five Senses. It was also a budget friendly gift option. I gave him a "gift" for each sense. 



Smell- cologne 

Taste- box of chocolates (his favorite candy!)
Sight- Lingerie, for me, not him! LOL 
Touch- Massage oil or Massage candle
Hear- Ipod playlist & headphones


I had SO much fun putting this gift together for him. He loved it! 

If you're looking for cheap but not cheap quality lingerie I love this site! Your first set is just $24.95! 

P.S I'm supppppper classy, don't you love the paint swatches on the wall? 


3.The Fantasy Box// So this might not be for the faint of heart, but it's a great option if you're, ya know..into it. There are plenty of low key options from mild to intense. It's a great idea if you're looking for a few ways to well, spice things up? They even have anniversary & honeymoon options! 


4. Man Crates // I LOVE Man Crates- it's my go to option when I need a gift for ANY man in my life, there are seriously so many options that you're sure to find something the man in your life with love! I got Nick one for Christmas and he thought it was the coolest thing. From Grilling to Making your own whiskey, there's a man crate for that. 



5. CANDY BOUQUETS // I've made these before and they are SUPER fun and cute! You can use mini liquor bottles, scratch offs and candy to put together a fun basket your man will LOVE. 


6. A GIFT FOR EVERY VALENTINE'S DAY YOU'VE SPENT TOGETHER// I've done this before for hubby's birthday- a gift every hour on the day of his birthday to celebrate his age. I've always used cheap things like his favorite candies, deodorants, things like that, stuff he actually uses, with a large (ish) or meaningful gift at the last hour. I thought it would be cute to do something similar on Valentine's Day. The key is not to overthink it.  All of our spouses are completely different so keep that in mind when putting together a fun gift or date night for your hubby!


7. DATE NIGHT IN BOX.// This box is awesome if you just really aren't creative and suck at planning date nights- like me, most months. ;) It's a box that comes with everything you need to have an awesome date night at home! Because sometimes you just don't feel like putting on pants. Take the pressure of your hubby and let Date Night INBOX plan your dates for you! I mean, how cool is that? 

How are you spending Valentine's Day this year? Are you celebrating or skipping it? Do you and your spouses exchange gifts? I'd love to hear from you guys! Feel free to drop a comment below or send me a message on Instagram and let's chat! Just love hearing from you guys!

  3. I feel like Matt will be lucky if I wish him a happy valentine’s day. I’m awful. I really don’t feel this holiday much! And getting him a gift is so hard for me. These are awesome ideas though!!

  4. ALL THANKS TO UPSTART LOAN AM NOW FINANCIALLY STABLE . upstartloan@yahoo.com
    I am Michelle Huxford from Casper, Wyoming. I was in a very chronic financial issue and terminal health situation some few weeks back. After all my search for assistance from friends and neighbors proved abortive, I feel there was no one who truly cares. I became so emaciated due to lack of good food and my 2 kids age 5 and 8 were not also good looking due to lack of proper care as a result of finance. One faithful morning I saw an old time friend of my late husband and I told him all I have been going through and he said the only way he could help was to direct me to a good loan agency that also helped him, He explained to me on how he was financially down and how he got boosted by this loan agency UPSTART LOAN INC ( upstartloan@yahoo.com ) who grant him 245,000 USD loan at an affordable rate. He further assured me that they were the only legit loan firm he found in the quest of seeking for loan after been scammed by various fake loan lenders online. He gave me their email: upstartloan@yahoo.com or text/call (574) 301-1639, That was how i applied and was also granted a loan and my life changed for the good. CONTACT THE ONLY GENUINE LENDERS( UPSTART LOAN INC) VIA email: upstartloan@yahoo.com or call +1 (574) 301-1639 to resolve your financial mess.
