Valentine’s Loving

I typically am the world’s worst gift giver.  My sister-in-law Page always knocks it out of the park no matter if it’s a gift for her husband, my kids, our in-laws, or anyone, so for Valentine’s Day I’m actually borrowing one of the ideas she gave her husband for Christmas and getting a custom leather Otterbox phone case for DG.  These phone cases were available during the NFR and Sundance in Park City, but I don’t think that they are being sold on the website yet.  Nonetheless, they are super cool and it will have DG’s brand on it.  I’ll post a picture when the final product is finished!  Meanwhile, I’ve been helping my friend come up with ideas for her husband and thought I’d post a few of them here because I really think they are keepers.

Valentine’s gifts for men

I haven’t met a man who doesn’t love a Yeti.  We gave these out for Christmas gifts to our ranch employees and everyone loved them.  Heck, I even love mine and take it with me to work every day.  These are great for cold or hot drinks.  If you want to spend more, you can give your man a Yeti cooler because I’m sure he’d love you for that too.

You can give him a shaving kit or a gift certificate to get a shave.  Where we live it’s hard to find a barber who gives a traditional men’s shave, so when we go out of town DG loves to go to the Art of Shaving and get a shave from the guys there.  It’s obviously their equivalent to a facial that us women know and love so much.

DG is super techy in that he loves to have the newest electronic products out there.  He uses Siri all the time and tries to get the most out of his devices.  All of the reviews that I’ve read for the Amazon Echo have been positive, so I think this would be a really fun gift.  I’m not sure if you have to change out your light switches to make them work with the Echo, but how cool would it be to be lying in bed and have the Echo turn off your light?

Tickets to a local sporting event and a nice dinner are always a winner in our book.  For us, it would have to be a Jazz game on either the 13th or 15th.  We’re actually planning to go out of town the weekend after Valentine’s Day so I won’t be doing this, but I know that DG would have enjoyed it.



What other gift ideas do you have to add to the man’s Valentine’s list?

      I think it’s a great idea because he would love it and the bonus is you get a date night out together!

  2. My husband would love the Amazon Echo! I know he would be Priming everything! As if the UPS guy isn’t at our house enough!

    • angsamp says:

      OMG I hadn’t even thought about Amazon orders through the Echo. My husband would be out of control!

  3. I think these are great ideas! I’m pretty sure anyone would love Alexa!

  4. I always need an article like this to remind me that Valentine’s Day isn’t all about the wife, I need to remember and honor my husband too! Thank you for the reminder!

  5. These are all great ideas! I have no idea what I’m getting mine for Valentines Day yet. Probably Gear for his horses. 😉
