What To Get Your Boyfriend For Valentine's Day

Photo by Flo Lee

Valentine's day is just over a week away! So whilst we've all been hinting heavily about that romantic gesture we've wanted since like January, maybe it's time to think about what our lovely beaus might want. I know, I know, guys are insanely hard to buy for, but don't panic! I think I've got a few good ideas that I'll let you use. 

Just as a little disclaimer all of these ideas are relatively cheap because I don't think Valentine's day should be about splashing out on lavish gifts like ipads or cars, but if that's what you do then fair enough, but this post probably won't help you very much! 

1) Take him to the cinema

This one's great because it can be relatively cheap (my local cinema charges £3.50 for students!) and it will give you something to chat and maybe even debate about over your romantic meal. He's probably spent the last few valentine's day watching rom coms he doesn't really care about (or maybe he does! In that case hold on to that boy!) so why don't you return the favour this year? Let him pick the film this time! Some great ones on at the moment are: 

The Hateful Eight
The Revenant 
Deadpool - This is what we're going to see! 

If you really don't like what he picks you could always suggest sitting at the back of the cinema for a make out sesh ;)

2) Create a home cinema

If you don't want to go out next Sunday night why not bring the cinema to him? Find out his favourite film and get it on DVD or on Netflix and create a home cinema! Get lots of pillows and duvets and make a little fort for you to sit in, turn the lights out and get some microwaved popcorn from the supermarket! This will be super cute and intimate and definitely more comfortable than the cinema seats! 

3) Buy him his favourite after shave

This is a win win situation as he gets to enjoy his new after shave and you get a beautifully smelling boyf! Not that he was smelly before but there's nothing better than getting a whiff of that after shave you adore on him. I know this can be expensive but there are some great cheaper colognes out there if you're on a budget! For instance, Hollister's Jake Body Spray is only £13 and smells delicious so does Hugo Boss' "Hugo" which is only £20! Have a shop (and a sniff) around and see/smell what you can find within your budget! 

4) Get some new Lingerie 


Another win win situation! Not only does he get a great valentine's present but you get some beautiful new underwear. It's probably best to talk to him about it and find out what you both like, or if you already know what he's into then just go out and get it and surprise him! 

The lingerie in the photos above belong to my bestie Catrina! She's got a whole post about choosing lingerie on her blog so you should definitely check that out! You can do that here!

5) Relive your first date

This one is really romantic and perfect for valentine's day. Recreate what you did on your first date, whether that's a dinner or a day out, it will bring back all those memories of when you first fell in love and he will love how much thought you put into it! 

6) Create a scrapbook of your favourite times together

This is really similar to recreating your first date but possibly cheaper. It would also be a good idea if you're unable to go back to where you went for your first date, plus its permanent! Again your guy will just love how much effort and thought you put into it! 

7) Book a hotel

The Felbridge Hotel we are staying at for Valentine's Day

My last idea is definitely more pricey however there are lots of great deals you can find on sites such as groupon! This is what we are doing this year and we found a deal for £65 for one night for two including breakfast! It would be really nice to escape just the two of you even if its only for one night. 

I hope this post has inspired you to spoil your boyfriend this Valentine's day! This is the first post in my Valentine's themed mini series, if you'd like to read the second part you can find it right here! 

See you next time,
Beth x
