Guys Always Get it Easy!

Love is in the air! With only a few weeks until the heart-shaped-filled holiday, we have got to prepare ourselves to give our men the ultimate gift. Isn’t it so unfair that they get off easy? If they stick to the roses and jewelry deal, they know they will get a heart-warming smile out of us…but what the heck do we get them? Remember, Valentine’s Day is a day to celebrate love, compassion, and partnerships.  So find gifts and ideas that truly reflect this and you will definitely hit a home run. Check out my list of favorite gifts below and get inspired!

Mini’s Top 5 Valentine’s Day Gifts for Men

Giving a gift that is uniquely personalized will definitely add that special touch of cuteness. You can:

Get his favorite accessory engraved! (watches, wallets, glasses, rings)…make sure it’s engraved in a secret spot that only you and him will know about. It makes it that much more special 😉

Personalized m&m’s….how cute is this? (thanks to my friend for this great idea!) If your man is a chocolate lover, then get him a bag of m&m’s with personalized sayings and pictures of the two of you. There is nothing yummier than your beautiful faces made out of chocolate.

Funny undies or t-shirts…personalize any kind of apparel with funny quotes or inside jokes! (Boxers that say: Property of Insert Your Name Here)

2. Couple’s Retreat
