I’m sure you girls have been dropping hints for weeks but what are you planning to get the man in your life this love day?  Don’t panic I’ve got a bunch of Valentine gift ideas for him that won’t eat into your Wedding budget.

valentine gift ideas for him

1.  Get your groom-to-be groomed.  Spoil him with a luxurious wet shave or trip to the hairdressers with a pampering head massage thrown in.  It’s a great opportunity for him to road test something new before the big day.

2.  I think you’ll find that it isn’t just us girls with the sweet tooth.  A box of heart shaped cookies with some bespoke messaging should go down a treat.  And if it’s true love he’ll be sure to share!

3.  Continuing with the foodie theme, why not indulge in a guy friendly afternoon tea.  Sausage rolls, steak sandwiches, ale and chocolate cake are all guaranteed to make his heart sing.  Plus there can’t be a better way to plan the finer details of your wedding day. Reclining on leather sofas in a relaxed environment whilst grazing on gourmet treats, sipping tea and cocktails, sheer bliss.

4.  Now for something that can be a keepsake for the Wedding day, cufflinks.  I love these little numbers from ASOS, a way to remind him that he’s a total fox.

5.  Got no pennies spare for Valentines because they are all being poured into the wedding budget?  Then the last of my Valentine gift ideas for him is a fun but more importantly free gift.  All you need to do is put together a playlist of your shared favourite songs.  You could make it easy on yourself and just create something in Spotify.  Alternatively collate your song list and pop it on a USB stick or CD to drop in with your Valentine’s card.  It could then become the soundtrack of your Wedding day morning.
