Valentine’s Day is less than 2 weeks away, and I am still stuck on le boyfriend’s gift! What to get for a man that has (seemingly) everything? Well, that’s my problem to solve (unless you have some helpful advice). And though I won’t likely be doing a men’s gift guide this year, here are a few gift ideas for the guys that might also be struggling with what to buy for their beloved (obsessed with that word).
I am always happy to get a perfume for any occasion, and if you know your girlfriend well-enough, a sexy fragrance might just be what the doctor ordered! My current faves are below.1. Coach Poppy Perfume ($60) Recently launched, Poppy is simply lovely, with notes of jasmine, gardenia, cucumber, and rose petals. I got a chance to try it for myself, and I must admit that I really liked it! It’s light and fresh…and simply amazing! 2. Calvin Klein BEAUTY Perfume ($89-$115) I’ve said so much about BEAUTY already. Read all about it here to decide whether your girlfriend might love it, or check out a tester at the mall. 3. Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb ($105-$185) This is the one I use right now. The fragrance is sweet and feminine, the bottle is all glitter and glamour – the best of both worlds!
If perfume is not your (or your girl’s) thing, a few other gifts might sweeten her day.4. Danier Red Clutch/Wallet ($39 on sale) Perfect for a romantic dinner out, this leather clutch will hold all of her essentials and spice up her outfit. 5. Louis Vuitton Heart Coin Purse ($455) Penny-pinching has never been so stylish! Also comes in a showstopping leopard print! 6. Banana Republic Bracelet ($50) Don’t buy her earrings or a cocktail ring for Valentine’s Day, lest she confuse the small box with an engagement ring! That one might create some awkwardness. Get her a bracelet or a necklace instead. Banana Republic has a really lovely selection (at amazing prices). 7. Locher’s Necklace ($53-$71) Speaking of necklaces, I’ve been a Locher’s fan for years! The designs are cute and sassy. And if your girl has a sense of humour, I guarantee that she will love it! 8. Heart-shaped Macarons ($4 each) They are macarons, shaped as hearts. Go get ’em NOW at my fave MoRoCo Chocolat. 9. Your Love (priceless) If all else fails, a simple I LOVE YOU should do. Adding “just the way you are” at the end will earn you some brownie points. It is a day to celebrate your love, after all…not some materialistic holiday, masterminded by Hallmark to bilk you out of millions of dollars!!! 10. A Card Even though I said that thing about Hallmark, most of us (ladies) would still like a card. So make sure to get her one (Papyrus cards are amazing)! The one I got for le boyfriend this year kicks ass!
