Valentines Day Gifts for the Man in Your Life

Are you struggling with what to get for your boyfriend or husband this Valentines Day? Well, you’re not alone – women around the world agree that choosing a Valentines Day gift for the man in their lives can be almost impossible. It doesn’t seem fair that there isn’t a masculine equivalent to a bunch of red roses or a bottle of perfume – most men don’t seem to know what they want anyway! Don’t despair; here are our top tips for making your man happy this February 14th.

Themed Slippers

Most men like slippers but don’t make the mistake of getting him boring ‘old man’ slippers. Get him something he will actually care about, something that ignites a dash of passion. You could get him NFL slippers of his favorite team, for example.


Every man loves a nice wristwatch and without spending a fortune there are hundreds of models available in a wide range of traditional and modern styles. Something is available for the most outdoor man to the elegant gent about town.

Computer Games

Even though guys are not usually good at dropping hints, you will have heard him or his buddies talking about the new ‘must have’ computer game. The only downside with this gift is that he may spend more time with it than with you for a while, unless of course you are into it too!

Tickets to an Event

Buy two tickets to see his favorite band or singer – this has two advantages; you get a night out as well and the anticipation of waiting until the date of the gig means he will feel like he’s getting a gift every day!

If he’s into theatre, the tickets might be for a show or you could of course get him tickets to his choice of sports event but be careful – choose something you’d like to go to too.

Magazine Subscription

No matter what he’s into; fishing, auto sports or the history of air travel, there is a magazine or a choice of magazines that specialize in the subject. Get him a subscription and have every edition for a year delivered to him at home. Again, he’ll be reminded of your thoughtfulness all year round.


They say that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach and it is usually true. Take him out for a meal that you know he’ll like or put together a hamper of his favorite treats, no matter how peculiar the mix might be. If you choose it right, he’ll know you care and that you’ve been thinking about him.

Revisit his childhood

It is also said that all men are big kids at heart so why not consider getting him something that will indulge the boyish side of his nature? Nobody is too old to enjoy flying a kite or a toy glider and for the less adventurous there are some really cool radio controlled indoor helicopters now available.

Big Apple Circus Dance On Comes to Boston, MA

I am so excited to announce that the Big Apple Circus Dance On is coming to Boston, MA.  I may not get to attend this show, as most of you who have been reading may recall I attended the Big Apple Circus show last year for the first time in Boston, MA but wasn’t able to share photos because of the fact that you are not allowed to have cameras during the show. I am sad that I may not be able to make this show due to only being able to get tickets for a weeknight show, which doesn’t fit into my schedule in anyway, however, I am happy to be able to share with you all a discount on tickets!

Cheap Movie Night?

I just heard about this great cheap way to have a movie night! It’s called Weekly Cinema. You subscribe to get one FREE movie ticket a month and then after that you get 3 additional movie tickets for $14.99. What a great way to save money while being able to go out and enjoy the new movies like Toy Story 3 or Despicable Me, which I so totally want to see both of those!

Movies are a great way to get out and eat popcorn or candy, whatever your fancy is, and make your kids feel special. I know everytime I go out to the movies with my munchkins they are so happy and feel better than they would watching a movie at home.

I just had to share this deal with you because I think it’s a steal of a deal! Hopefully you will think the same and take full advantage of the Weekly Cinema deal!

Questions for Thought: Do you get out to the movies once in a while with your kids? Do they do the same as mine, feel super special?

Looking for a Good Show?

I haven’t ever attended a ballroom show but I have seen there are Hammerstein Ballroom Tickets on sale over at A Cheap Seat and they have featured many bands such as The Offspring and Guns N’ Roses (I heart them), so I may just have to attend one within the next year!

A Cheap Seat offers premium seating to events without waiting in line or on hold via the telephone! You can purchase Chicago Blackhawks Tickets or Jeff Dunham Tickets both of which sound like they would be a fantastic event to attend! I will be honest that the only show I have ever attended was a Bob The Builder show I won on a blog giveaway from Resourceful Mommy.

To get great deals on tickets is something I just love! Whenever someone is looking for a good show to attend they should certainly take a look at
