Hey yalls, welcome, good day, hello
So.. Valentine’s Day is coming up in 2 days! Even if gift-giving is your love language, finding the perfect gift for the Valentine in your life isn’t easy. The challenge: You want something as sweet and heartfelt as your love, but still something he’ll find practical enough for day-to-day life. (Cause men, if they can’t use it, they’ll store it away forever and it will never see the light of day) Unless, you’ve snugged yourself one of the rare ones, then girl SCORE!
Yes. It’s as simple as that. Legit, I asked my uncle, brother, father, and boyfriend what they wanted for Christmas – and ALL of them said socks. Research done. H&M has some pretty dope patterned socks or check out LAZADA or Shoppee. Pro Tip: Try matching the pattern or style to something he likes.
I’m gonna personally say that a man’s scent is one of the most attractive attributes about a man. If the scent stinks, BOOM, bye boy. I mean, isn’t that why we keep stealing our man’s shirts and hoodies? My ultimate favourite and proven by many other women (i’m sure). Are you ready? Sauvage by Dior 1. Johnny Depp 2. Literally sends you on a wild night of sweats. Here are some masculine scents that drive us crazy and their perfumes to match (please know that I am nooooo expert) – these are just some other that smell real good.
Spicy notes in a fragrance, such as cinnamon, ginger, frankincense, and myrrh, can warm up even the coldest of nights.
Clean and invigorating, the tangy scent of citrus, such as lemon, lime, orange, lemongrass, and red grapefruit gives men that fresh-out-of-the-shower scent. Personally, yes! But too much of it can give you a headache.
Clean scents can be energizing and uplifting, giving women a sense of calm and freshness. (We clearly like our man clean)
A staple for most men’s colognes, musk is a rich, sexy, and sensual scent. The scent is masculine in every sense, and is one that many women choose for their men to wear, as well as a popular choice for men themselves.
Earthy scents like sandalwood, patchouli, and rosewood are strong scents commonly associated with masculinity. The earthy aroma can warm the body and increase feelings of well-being. (Patchouli smells is also an amazing note in women’s perfumes)
So clearly the winner is Sauvage by Dior. Hehe.
So this is for the man that’s super into gym or that’s just starting out. Find out what protein powder he takes, get him a refill and hey, if he’s workin on his bod, well…..you gain too. So here are the top picks – trousers, muscle tank and protein (make sure you find out what he’s been taking). It’s always nice to get a refill. Head on down to Muscle Mania, quick!
For the gamer in your life. Ask about the game’s he’s looking forward to playing. Some of the hot games played are The Witcher (it’s getting very popular after the Netflix series ), Batman: Arkham Asylum, God of War, Marvel’s Spiderman, Red Dead Redemption .. the list goes on) for XBOX.. er any of the HALO’s. OR get him a new controller, his current one is probably VERY worn out from all that playing.
REMOTE CONTROL TOYS
All men are children at heart. No, I’m not demeaning them. It’s cute. Sometimes. Get him a remote control air plane or a drone. Trust me, he’ll play with it ALL THE TIME. If you’re willing to share him with his new toy, yes, this is perfect.
Yes, the obvious car stuff. I suggest asking him what he needs for his car. Or just get his car for a wash and polish. A shiny new car? YES. VROOM VROOM BABY
EXPERIENCE BASED ON INTEREST
Find out what he likes. What has he been into lately? If he likes building robots, get him a robot to build. Toys R Us has some pretty good ones!
HOME COOKED MEAL
Try cooking a meal. Even if it turns out a little overcooked, it’s the effort and thought that counts. Here’s a few easy recipes from Tasty you can try.
Don’t forget the candles!
We’re about to get very PG-18. If you really want to surprise him –
Incorporate role play. Live the fantasy and run wild. Dress up. Live out that Fifty Shades of YOU. A fun role playing idea would be to pretend to be strangers in a bar and let him try to pick you up.
I’m a dweeb. You can totally go with the easy nurse, police woman costumes.
Now that you’re equipped, go forth and gift. Happy Valentine’s Day, ladies. But remember, any day can be Valentine’s Day.
Guess which one I got 😉
PLAY SAFE, KIDS!
