Get Your Sweetheart the Perfect Valentine’s Day Gift

A man getting ready to give his sweetheart the perfect Valentine's Day gift.

Ah, Valentine’s Day – that annual celebration replete with love, romance and nervousness over giving the right gift. If you’re just not sure what type of gift you should get for your sweetheart, below are some solid Valentine’s Day gift ideas to help get those gears turning.

Gifts for Him:

1. Chocolate Covered Bacon

Valentine’s Day is infamous for its chocolate-covered strawberries, but for your guy, try going for chocolate-covered bacon. You can also consider other bacon-based confectioneries as well, such as bacon brittle or bacon candy. Bottom line: Bacon + sugar = instant classic.

2. Men’s Grooming Kit

Every guy has to engage in “manscaping” every now and then, so why not help him keep his routine maintenance on point with a handy grooming kit? This Philips grooming kit from Macy’s offers a precision multi-trimmer along with 18 different length settings to help your favorite guy trim, clip and detail to his heart’s content.

3. Headphones

A nice set of headphones in guy-world is the equivalent of a gorgeous pair of statement earrings in girl-world. You can wow your sweetheart with these Beats by Dre Solo 3 wireless headphones (available at Macy’s), which have a sleek look and a comfortable feel, and they’re no slouch in the audio quality department either. With Bluetooth compatibility and up to 40 hours of battery life, this headphone set will enable him to experience his favorite music like never before.

4. Ray-Ban Sunglasses

You would be hard-pressed to find a guy who doesn’t appreciate a nice pair of sunglasses. When it comes to stylish eyewear that offers exceptional quality, you really can’t get any better than Ray-Ban’s Aviator line. For a guaranteed Valentine’s Day home run, swing by Macy’s to scoop up a pair for your favorite dude.

Gifts for Her:

1. Clinique Crayola Chubby Lip Sticks

For a Valentine’s Day gift that is as useful as it is playful, you really can’t beat this 8-piece Clinique Crayola Chubby Lip Stick set from Macy’s. With fun monikers such as Pink Sherbert, Mauvelous and Mango Tango, these high-performance lip colors offer a range of shades from sheer to intense, as well as buttery-smooth softness and comfort.

2. A Handbag

Now hold on a minute, cowboy … not just any handbag will do. You have to put some thought into it, as well as a decent chunk of pocket change. This doesn’t mean that you have to mortgage your home for the most haute couture bag out there, but it should be a quality find that will stand the test of time. For the most bang for your buck, there really is no better bag on the planet than a Coach bag. For example, this Coach Taylor Tote in Hologram Leather (available at Macy’s) offers unparalleled style along with Coach’s legendary durability. For the woman whose life is in her handbag, you’re sure to score massive points with this gift.

3. Prada Candy Perfume and Lotion Set

We can’t confirm whether the devil actually wears Prada or not, but what we do know is that women love anything from this iconic luxury fashion designer. This Prada Candy perfume and body lotion set from Macy’s exudes femininity from the packaging to the fragrance itself, and it is sure to put a smile on your sweetheart’s face this Valentine’s Day.

4. A Comfy Blanket

There’s some kind of unwritten universal law that keeps men and women’s temperature settings completely different, and if you ask most guys, their favorite girl leans to the cold side most of the time. Why not turn this interesting disparity into a positive by blessing her with a soft, thick and comfy blanket such as this Grand Resort Collection plush blanket from Sears? Who knows–it just may be her favorite companion when she’s on a weekend-long chick flick marathon.

When Cupid comes flying by this February, you don’t have to worry about scoring the right gift for your sweetheart. Keep the above ideas in mind to make this Valentine’s Day the best one yet!
