We are ALL guilty of it… buying a present on your lunch break, looking through old pictures of the both of you to frame; maybe even trying to find something to get for your mom or dad at the grocery store? Well I think I have all of your bases covered below.
Remember one important thing when shopping for your loved one……”them” (meaning what they would like, or their style and expertise in a certain topic or hobby). Below are items that I recommend for every Valentine on your list.
For your dad: nothing says “I love you,” more than a round of golf or going to the shooting range, just the both of you 🙂
For your mom: every Valentine’s day I get my mom a gift certificate to get a pedicure and jewelry of some sort. My favorite place to pull pieces for my mom (and myself) is Francesca’s.
For your friends: even though it is not a typical thing to do, getting a friend a present is a sweet treat especially if they have a sweet tooth. I like to make my girlfriends cupcakes or brownies (depending on their favorites).
For your boy toy: my husband and I don’t typically buy presents for each other but we like to go out to dinner and exchange handmade cards. For those of you not like my hubby and I… I recommend getting him something that he would like to do with you, like a couples massage, or a picnic in your backyard with all of his favorite snacks. If you want to get fancy; take him to the mall and pick out an outfit for him because he may return the favor and get you an outfit too 🙂 wink wink!
If clothes aren’t his forte I would try and think outside the box and maybe get him something that he collects like comic books, or Ghostbusters gear (my husband is obsessed with Ghostbusters). For the man that has everything I recommend getting him a gift card at The Art of Shaving– it’s like a man’s facial but for his beard!
Hope this helped all of you last minute shoppers out there!
