Haven’t found the perfect gift for him yet? I quite excell in finding last minute gift ideas (more generally, last minute has become a real speciality…but that’s a topic for another time :p) And to tell you the truth, as I’m writing this post, I still haven’t got my boyfriend a present. I’m planning to get it done today and it’s one of the gifts that I’ve selected for you here! Guess which one!
As it’s clearly last minute, I tried as much as possible to select gifts that you can get easily and immediately at the stores.Usually I do my shopping at the local mall, or if I look for something fancier I look it up online. If you plant to have it send to you,be sure that the date it arrives is before the 14 th. So here’s a versatile selection that should suit any style and budget:
1. A backpack
If your boyfriend loves to pack a lot of things, or just carries a backpack around to help you shopping (*haha*) it is really a good idea to pick a backpack. Especially nowadays,you can find very pretty ones even while looking at Women’s Fashion Stores,since many can be worn unisex. Pretty neat as a gift, right? I’m a huge fan of the ones from THE PACK SOCIETY. You can find all kind of models,in different shapes and colors. If you want to search for unisex models you can also look in BERSHKA or RESERVED.
2. A pair of sunglasses
As you have seen in the latest fashion shows, sunglasses are officially an accesory that can be worn day in,day out,all year around. Whenever the sun gets too bright, or you’re having a long drive,you always need to have your sunglasses with you. And let’s not forget to be stylish. Sunglasses nowadays are so versatile, with round or edgy designs, black, white, blue, red any color that suits you, or in this case him. Again a wonderful present that you can have in a pair look. Check out the ones from PULLANDBEAR for more delicious designs that are on the budget.
If you’re boyfriend is super stylish, he’ll know how to wear them.
As an additional or main present,some sweets are always a good idea and it’s not like you didn’t have millions of options to choose from. Macarons are perfect I find because they had some feminine touch. I recommend from your local paistry store, like the french PAUL.
It can be quite tricky to choose a perfume for somebody else but when it comes to your boyfriend,it’s another story, right? Personally I’m in love right now with MY BURBERRY a blog post that I’ve written recently and the good thing BURBERRY has its private selection for men’s fragrances as well. Another cool perfume is CALVIN KLEIN 2 which can both of you can wear it. My boyfriend has a similar taste in perfumes so it’s a present we like to offer each other from time to time. Both are available at Sephora or Douglas. In any case, wheather you go for these ones or another one, believe me that guys have perfume crushes like us girls as well.;)
5. A jewelry
That’s right! You heared me. It not suppose to be a funny sideline, but maybe your guy is into piercings, like to wear a ring, a leather bracellette a metall necklace, it’s up to do decide what suits him best as a Valentine’s present. If you’re lost, a keychain that sparkles some memories like ours in Sardinia with a pair keychair with a baby flamingo may give a clue on how to go by when picking out his present. The ones from Diesel are to die for, but if you want to play it safe, head over to Pullandbear.
6.A mobile case
Same goes for cases, a guy could also be s fan of cases who changes them periodically to add a bit of umpf to his own personal style. It’s a gift that is always welcome, and suits any budget. If you have a crush on somebody, it would be a good occassion to express your feelings with a custom case. Little help- if your boyfriend is as unsure as mine when it comes to fashion, pick the most flashiest out! He will not resist to test it out.;)
7. A good book
Your boyfriend is a book worm? So why not offer him a few good books or gift voucher to that extend? Again plenty of options! Sports,Fashion, Lifestyle, Travel, the list goes on! And if this doesn’t suit your ideas of s gift, try out the dvd section for a romantic movie. Always a good idea! My personal pick would be Carturesti, they have lots of famous books and an endless list of classic movies. If you’re stuck then try amazon to find classic titles like the ones from the ’80s with Tom Hanks, I know we’re having a crush right now with his movies. (*laugh*)
8.A scented candle
On top of the divine fragrance that fills delightly a room, a scented candle is also very cute decoration for your home or night stand if chosen well. Try to match it with your own personal taste so the both of you can enjoy it. I personally love the candles from Yankee Candles, they seem to last forever and the taste is delicious.
9.A city break for two
What’s better than offering your boyfriend some quality alone time with you away from work and hectic schedules? You know that your relationship needs a lot of time spend the both of you, so why not find a nice place to spend the night or two? Just prepare a handmade gift voucher explaining your idea and then take time to book something together. Again it’s perfect for any budget as you don’t need to go too far of by plane. It’s important that you have enough time spent together.
10. Some pampering time
And the last one but not least. Nothing is better to enjoy Valentine’s than to offer him and yourself a SPA session at the local hotel or resort area. Maybe some quality at the pool is what you’re looking for. A hotel like Radison of a bigger gym like World Class offers that kind of pampering. Just give then a phone call of shoot an email to reserve your spot. Near any city the is usually a resport area. The most famous near Cluj is SALT RESORT COJOCNA. The both of us can’t wait to test it out!
I hope you’ll find what you’re looking for in this selection and good luck to the latecomers. 🙂 As to me, I speed by to get my boyfriend a present!
