Romantic Gifts for Men
When most people think romantic gifts, they tend to think that women should be the
one receiving them, instead of giving them. However, men like a nice romantic gift
just as much as the next person. The problem is most people have a hard time thinking
up a gift for a man that fits into the romantic category. While women tend to be
suckers for gifts like chocolates, flowers, and jewelry, these don't often rate high in
the romance department for men. So, to help you come up with some great romantic
gifts for men, we have listed some things to consider before purchasing a gift, plus
some of the hottest romantic gifts for men available today.
Things to consider: In order for a gift to be truly romantic for him, it really should fit
at least two and hopefully three of the following three requirements.
The gift should be for him. This is obvious, but think of it this way, it should not be
something for the house or the car, but something specifically for him to use and
enjoy when he wants to relax and have fun.
The gift should not be something he needs, or would buy for himself with no
occasion. For example, do not buy a DVD player and Classic Rock as a gift because
his is broken, or a Clock that is something he would buy for himself.
The gift should be thoughtful and directed to his interests and tastes. Generic gifts are
not romantic, so instead, be sure to get something specific to them and the things that
they are interested in.
Here are some fun ideas for romantic gifts:
Hobbies: Most men have expensive hobbies. Cycling, Gardening, painting, playing
golf, fishing, Cigars, Classical music are just some of them. Men seldom spend
money on their hobbies. Therefore, it would be a touching emotion on your part, if
you gift your man something that he knew would greatly enhance his hobby but didn't
feel like parting with money for. There are a number of new gardening and painting
tools coming up everyday. As for golf players, a new golf set never hurt.
Gift baskets: A gift basket is a fun romantic gift because it allows you to give dad
something they can enjoy for several days. You can also customize the gift basket to
their personal tastes. For example, if your man loves to golf, you can give him a
golfer's gift basket with chocolate golf balls and real ones, etc.

Pampering items: Like women, men like to look and smell good, but most women are
afraid to get a man items to pamper himself with as a gift. A great romantic gift for a
man is a toiletry kit that includes cologne, deodorant, shaving materials, and other
personal hygiene materials. Of course, do not buy them the basic or the cheap stuff,
but splurge and get the best stuff you can find so that they feel really special. Nice-
smelling cologne is going to be a gift he can use over and over, and each time will
think of you.
In general, the idea behind a romantic gift is to make him feel special, so whether you
get him a video game that he has been wanting, or a bottle of expensive wine, it can
be romantic as long as it is thoughtful, personal, and is presented in a way that shows
how much you care.
Consider giving him romantic gifts along with breakfast in bed, or a home cooked
dinner accompanied by candle light. Get a sitter for the kids, and give him a night at
home with you to relax and reacquaint yourselves with one another. Sometimes the
best gifts are the ones that respark the flames of love and romance in your
relationship. So, go a little risky, go the extra mile, and add those details that make an
ordinary meal or gift into something romantic and special.
