Jan 29 (THAINDIAN NEWS) “A Valentine a Day Until Valentine’s Day” was my promise to you. So, everyday from now until February 14th, I will be writing an article in honor of this event. If you missed the last articles, much of my work can be found here.
Thanks to a comment left by Janan, on my last article,(thank you Janan!) I am writing today on Valentine gift ideas for the man in your life. I know how hard it can be to find the right gift for your man, since most times candy, teddy bears and flowers just won’t cut it.
For around $70, you can get your Valentine his very own unique and “manly” kind of gift basket! They placed some of the most popular beers brews in the world into a galvanized bucket with a few gourmet snacks, such as mixed nuts, beef jerky, and pretzels. You can order this gift from here.
I will admit that my next idea is a little more costly, but it looked so exciting that I simply had to add it here. Did you know that you can drive a stock car on a real Nascar Speedway? Now tell me girls, just how much would your man love THAT?!
According to the website at Cloud9LIVING, “Experience real life racing thrills by getting behind the wheel of a real Sprint Cup style stock car. Make your racing dreams come true as you hit speeds exceeding 150 MPH on a real NASCAR speedway. You’re in for the ride of your life, so hang on tight!” The varied packages and locations can be found at the website here.
You can also buy them their very own Cloud9Living Gift Certificate and let them choose their own gift, so to speak. This is sold here.
Starting at $120 you can design and customize your man’s very own Nike Air tennis shoes. You can choose the colors, whether it be his favorite color, or his favorite team color, and customize it to your specifications. It is fun to try, and you can do that right here.
Another great idea is a day at the spa. The trick here is, for you ladies who just aren’t sure that your man will get you the gift that you want, you can get these gifts for two! What could be more relaxing than a day at the spa that you can BOTH enjoy? Although this may sound like a female gift, what man does not like a massage? Trust me, he’ll love it, and so will you! Check out the choices here.
After the relaxing day at the spa, he may just want to go home and lounge around. I found these comfy-looking Slip-on bedroom shoes from L.L.Bean for under $50!
Finally, I wanted to share this gift with you. In yesterday’s article I showed you where to get a customized Rawlings baseball for your man on Valentine’s day.(It was here: http://www.findgift.com/gift-ideas/pid-165158/ ) Well I have found out where to buy the bat to go with it! It is a Louisville Slugger, and you can customize it with up to three lines of text. I found this gift idea here.
I said I would try to find one Valentine Freebie everyday, so for today, I am listing one for those who’s Valentine is away, maybe a soldier away at war, or someone who works out of town and cannot be home, you can record your own Valentine Message, webcam and voice both, and send it online, all for free! You can find this opportunity here. What a great idea for those who have not seen each other for a long time!
So ladies, there are a few unique gifts that your man is sure to love! Just remember, as I have already said, it is not about how much you spend, or how nice the gift. It is about love, and love doesn’t cost a thing. John 13:34 “I give you a new commandment: that you should love one another. Just as I have loved you, so you too should love one another.”
So that’s it for today’s Valentine Gift Ideas. Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoyed! Be sure to check back tomorrow for my next Valentine article!
