I just called my husband with the perfect idea for a Valentine’s Day gift: Tickets to NBA All-Star Saturday Night. It’s something we’ve talked about doing for as long as I’ve known him, and though tickets are super-expensive, I thought now would be the best time in our lives to drop this kinda of cash because, A) It’s right here in NYC, B) We don’t have a mortgage to worry about just yet, and C) No kids and all the expenses that come with it. Both B and C will likely change soon, so I thought, Carpe Diem! But my financially responsible husband shut it down, which got me thinking about last-minute gifts. Yikes! I gave it some thought and came up with my top three:
Dollar Shave Club Membership:
There’s no doubt about it, dudes are obsessive when it comes to their razors and what they are shaving their faces with. What better way to show you understand their neuroses than to buy into it…Literally! Pick out a razor, choose some additional products, and like magic it will appear at his door step every month!
Amazon Instant Video Gift Card
Let’s be honest, sometimes Netflix just doesn’t cut it, and your S.O. is too cheap to rent anything online since you already pay for Netflix. Put his mind at ease and get an Amazon Instant Video Gift Card so you guys can watch what you want, when you want.
They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, so why not take him to that restaurant he’s been dying to try but never had the opportunity to go? Valentine’s Day is the perfect holiday to do that!
Honorable Mention: Massage
It’s a little “cheap” since you’re not purchasing anything, but giving massages is hard work, and at no real benefit to you. It’s a great way to show your man you care about him without breaking the banks, and of course spending quality time together!
