How to Surprise Your Man for Valentine’s Day

Just when Xmas passed, it’s time to think about all the ways we could surprise our lover for the most romantic holiday of all – Valentine’s Day. This holiday, however, is not about buying expensive and big things – it is more about making your special someone really feel like the one, giving him the most romantic and unique presents you can. It’s the time to be original, and think about all the positive feelings he evokes in you – if he really makes you feel special, your goal is to make him feel proud and happy he’s with you. If you’re stuck and don’t know what to get your man for Valentine’s Day, take a look at our tips:


A sexy piece of clothing

If you’re about to get your man a jacket or a pair of trousers – just forget it. If you’re determined to get him a piece of clothing, you should definitely go for a nice (maybe even sexy) pair of underwear. There’s nothing sexier than a hot guy in nice underwear, and choosing the ones you find the sexiest can benefit both sides – he’s getting high-quality underwear, and you’re getting the chance to see your guy in the pair of underwear you like and you chose. Since underwear is something that we all need, but take for granted, it could really be something he needs. Moreover, you can be very original while giving him the present – one idea would be for you to “forget” your underwear and meet him commando by mistake. You can really make a game (or a role-play) out of this, so keep your mind open for this option.

A Lady-and-the-Tramp kind of gift

As Valentine’s Day is all about romance, perhaps a great present for your guy could be an unforgettable evening, either out or in. If you choose the first option, you should definitely book a restaurant that means a lot to both of you – perhaps even the place you went on your first date. It could bring back so many nice memories and that way, you’ll spend the night remembering how perfect you are for each other. If you choose the latter, though, the choices are endless. First of all, you could prepare a great home-cooked meal and take out a nice bottle of Lucy M Chardonnay and drink the night away. You could spice it up by making sure the atmosphere is perfect – get romantic red candles and flowers, dim the lights, perhaps put on a sexy outfit. It’s such a thoughtful present that he’ll probably remember it forever.

Make love to the camera

Perhaps the most thoughtful type of present I’ve ever heard of was printing out sexy photos of you for your partner. You’ve probably been sending sexy selfies to your partner, and getting some in return – we all love that. However, for this occasion, you could book a photographer that you won’t be shy around. Make sure to make an original photo session in which you’ll be (half-) naked – you know your partner will love that. If you want to be even more original, take his favourite movie or book and make a themed photo session – if he’s into Star Wars, you could be the sexiest version of Princess Leia. However, if you’re too embarrassed to do this, you can book the themed photo session and take him with you. It doesn’t have to be sexy, and he’ll most definitely like to be a part of the photo session of his favourite Universe.

Make use of the weekend bag

Last, but definitely not least is this piece of advice for you this Valentine’s Day: book a trip for the two of you. It could either be a romantic weekend getaway to a cottage in the woods or in another city, but it could also spend a couple of days in another country. Since these trips can break the bank, you should definitely start planning right now – there are excellent choices you can make, and great ways to save money while booking the plane tickets and accommodation. If you find a great deal for a place he would love to go, but hasn’t been yet – this is your chance. Make sure to allocate yourself an hour or two for exploring all the options in detail – you’ll most definitely find something excellent.
