Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas for Your Fiancé

Let's be honest, most men are hard to shop for! It doesn't matter if it's a birthday, Christmas, anniversary or Valentine's Day, us ladies are usually stumped! We've put together a list of gifts that men will love! Whether they are the gift type or the memory maker we're sure to get your ideas flowing this Valentine's Day!

1. Physical Gifts. This is for those men who will actually use and appreciate a physical gift given to them! Lots of men will say they want something but never buy it for themselves, now is your time to remember what that something was!

For the business man: a watch, a new brief case, a grooming kit, etc.

For the Athlete: a gift basket of athletic gear/snacks that they love, a pair of sneakers they are hesitant to buy for themselves, etc.

For the outdoorsy man: camping gear, hiking accessories, fishing themed basket, beard grooming supplies, etc.

2. Sentimental Gifts. This type of gift giving is for you ladies that have a man that truly appreciates something from the heart.

Collectables: does your man collect something like coins or cards? This gift isn't about the price, but more about the time you put into finding that item they don't yet have in their collection.

Sentimental Items: maybe someone close to them has recently passed away, a great way to keep their memory alive is to make something new out of their loved ones tie, t-shirt, etc.

How did your fiancé propose? (from the brides point of view)

"It was a typical night, nothing much going on. We were cooking pancakes together for dinner, laughing and enjoying each others company. He wasn't acting out of the ordinary, so I didn't suspect anything. After we were finished eating, I got up to start cleaning but he suggested that we just sit together and talk (this is when I started to feel something was up, cause normally after supper he would just go and play his video games). I sat back down, and he got quiet saying, he had something to tell me, but don't know how. I repeated "What" a few times feeling anxious as he was still quiet. In a flash, he pulled out a box from his sweater, placed it in front of me, opened it and asked if I would marry him. My body was in such a state of shock, that it felt like I was having an out of body experience. Still in shock mode, I kept saying "OMG, are you for real" before saying yes, of course gushing and squealing."

How did you propose? (from the grooms point of view)

"We were having pancakes for supper, I had the ring in my pocket. After dinner, I told Celine that I had something to tell her, but that I didn't know how. I got really nervous, pulled out the ring and asked Celine to marry me all in one motion. When she was done saying "Are you for real" She said yes."
