Romantic Gift Ideas for a Husband
Men aren’t known for being sappy, but that doesn’t mean your husband won’t appreciate a romantic gesture every so often. When the occasion dictates — whether it’s a birthday,
Christmas, anniversary or just because — surprise your beloved with a gift that’s personalized to his tastes while still keeping the spark of romance alive.
Romantic gifts don’t have to consume your entire savings account, so when you’re on a budget, think creatively.
For just a couple of dollars, buy a lottery ticket. Clip a note on it that reads, “I hit the jackpot when I married you” — maybe your spouse will hit the jackpot, too! If your husband is a beer-lover, buy a six-pack and stick on a note stating, “I love you beer-y much.” If he likes a specific brand, such as Blue Moon, you can play on the words with phrases such as, “I love you to the moon and back.”
There’s something to be said for the classics, such as “his” and “hers” gifts. Potential presents include “his” and “hers” pillowcases or towels, pajamas or Christmas tree ornaments.
A traditional way to show your husband how much you love him is to play into his interests, such as buying him a pair of tickets for a performance by his favorite band or by making reservations for a restaurant he likes. The romance comes into play on your date night to the concert or dinner.
A married couple collects a lot of memories over the years, and it’s romantic to look back on them fondly. Gather photos and home videos of the two of you and piece them together into a slideshow or short video. Set it to music, whether it’s “your” song or the tune you danced to at your wedding.
Another romantic option is to find a nice bag or basket and fill it with memories of your relationship, such as a pennant from the college you both attended, a bottle of wine you enjoy splitting or a framed photo from your first vacation together.
For some men, all the romance they need begins in the bedroom. Give him a catalog from your preferred lingerie store and a $20, $50 or $100 bill with the note, “You choose.”
You might also create a basket full of sensual objects, such as scented candles, lotion, a blindfold and any other item that gets the fire going.
