It’s expected, culturally, that men buy women gifts, flowers, and chocolates for Valentine’s Day, or at least that’s what we’re told. But it’s 2020 and gender roles and traditional relationships of the past are changing. So, what do you get a man for Valentine’s Day? This might be easy if you’re a man yourself, but for women, it’s a bit trickier. You could go with the traditional shaving/electronic gadgets present, but you’re getting a gift for your lover, not your dad! Don’t worry, we got you covered, here are a few 21st-century ideas for you.
Buy a Class/Experience
With websites like Coursehorse, you can buy your man a cool experience. It could be anything from beer tasting to a cooking class. Whatever his interests are, you can probably find a class for it. The best part is that you can join him or send him out with some good buddies. Physical gifts are fleeting, but experiences last forever.
Go to an Event
In the same line of experiencing cool things together, getting a man tickets to an event he really wants to attend makes an excellent gift. It could be a concert, a sporting event, or even a Broadway show. Once again, the memories you’ll make and the bonding experience is worth so much more than the ticket price!
Book a Trip
Get out of town and go on an adventure together! Many studies have shown that adrenaline and new experiences strengthen your bond. You can even buy him a solo trip since absence does make the heart grow fonder, scientifically. When he returns, you’ll both have cool new stories to share with each other.
Buy him something he can use all year, a subscription for streaming TV shows, whiskey, fashionable outfits, shoes, beer, etc. There’s an endless list of monthly subscription boxes you can buy for your guy and they’re all affordable. The bonus? He’ll get a surprise from you every month!
Thanks to the internet, you can get all kinds of crazy things delivered to your door. First, it was just food and groceries. Now, you can buy your man an in-home massage or spa treatment. There are even chefs that can come and cook you a professional romantic dinner without anyone having to get out of their pajamas.
