Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas For Him – Based On How Long You’ve Been Dating
3 Months or Less
If you’ve only been seeing each other for a few months, you can probably get away with not giving a gift, but you do risk an awkward moment if he showers you with flowers and teddy bears. So if you want to keep something on hand, go with a classic gift. A cool bottle of his favorite booze, a Netflix gift card, or a book you think he might like are harmless yet amazing gifts for anyone. And of course, it wouldn’t be Valentine’s Day without chocolate.
If you’ve been dating half a year, you can kind of loosen up a bit. You’ve got a good grasp on what his interests are. This is the perfect time to get him a quirky gift or something practical like a nice shirt. And, of course, you can never go wrong with a Fire TV Stick so you can watch all your favorite shows together.
Nine months in is probably a good time to spend a little more money on gifts than you have before. Maybe a pair of trainers, a new wallet or his favourite fragrance. All are tasteful, classic gift ideas.
If you’ve been dating a year, it’s time to get a little more creative. Maybe give a gift you both can enjoy like tickets to a concert, or an overnight stay at a hotel with room service breakfast in bed. Or maybe it’s time to update some of his accessories like a pair of headphones or a watch, which also make great gifts.
2 Years or Longer
If you’ve been dating a few years, Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to celebrate another year of being together. Sentimental gifts, such as a heartfelt card or a journal of little love notes show you care without having to spend too much money. Or if you feel like spoiling him, splurge on a gadget he’s been eyeing or surprise him with a weekend trip to a destination you’ve both always want to visit.
