To be honest, it can be difficult to choose the right Valentine’s gift for him at the best of times. It’s even more complicated if you’ve left your surprise to the last minute and need ideas fast to avoid disappointing him on February 14th.
Luckily, we’ve found 7 really easy last-minute solutions that you can use if you find yourself in a Valentine’s Eve bind so that you can still show that you know how to surprise him.
1. Food – A Gift that Speaks to His “Tastes”
Who doesn’t appreciate a gift that speaks to their stomach and arouses their senses of smell and taste? If you love to cook and express your creativity through food then a tasty homemade last-minute treat is the perfect way to surprise him. Maybe it could be his favourite meal or even a trip to his favourite restaurant. There are plenty of romantic recipe options that you could surprise him with.
2. DIY Love Vouchers – A Treat He Can Enjoy Anytime
This is an easy one you can make yourself at home in a pinch. With some paper, glitter and whatever crafting tools you have to hand you can easily design and make beautiful tokens of your love that can be cashed in throughout the year. Here are a few examples to get you started.
3. A Magazine Subscription – A Surprise that Sparks His Interest
For a gift that really speaks to your partner’s passions and shows how well you truly know his interests a subscription to his favourite publication could do the trick in a hurry. It may seem like a rather boring gift on the surface but with the right packaging (such as boxing or wrapping a magazine) or by writing a love note into your card revealing the gift this can be the perfect surprise for him.
4. Gift Baskets – Love in a Perfect Package
Gift baskets are perfect customisation gifts that you can quickly and easily make yourself at home. All you need to do is decide on a theme that he’ll love and then to select a few items which will delight him. Find out how to make your own in a few easy steps.
5. Outdoor Experiences – A Call to Adventure He’ll love
If your man has a wild side then you can surprise him with an adventure experience either that you’ve designed yourself or that you’ve purchased. If you really have no time and know that he loves the outdoors then take him out for a romantic walk somewhere with dramatic scenery, where you can be alone together.
6. Home Photo Booth – Capture Special Moments Forever
With a little bit of pre-preparation and perhaps a few props and camera equipment (a mobile phone and selfie-stick will also do), you can share a romantic and fun time together creating your own memorable, funny or tender photos that you will always treasure. This is a really quick and inexpensive way to surprise him last minute.
7. Cologne – Choose (or Make) A Scent as Refined as He Is
Smelling good and feeling good go hand-in-hand. Therefore, the gift of cologne is always a safe choice for Valentine’s Day. With so many options available you can easily choose a fragrance that best suits his style and personality from well-known brands. Alternatively, if you are really short of time and have enough odds and ends in the house, you could even try making your own! It’s not as complicated as it seems.
