If you’re anything like me, then you love when you give your man a gift and it turns out to be something he really loves. When I see him wear or use something I’ve picked out for him, it’s a small thing but a big success in my book and I love patting myself on the back when I get it right.

But every year (Valentine’s, Christmas, birthday, or anniversary time), I wrack my brain about what he would like or I end up flat out asking him for a list, which isn’t very fun at all.


So it becomes somewhat of a challenge for me. Isn’t everything more fun when you make a game of it?

I’ve compiled some real ideas you could Prime right now, plus a printable list you can fill out yourself that will get you to thinking, so you aren’t stressing out when it comes time to go shopping again.

We definitely don’t buy lavish gifts every holiday of every year, but I like to splurge on the man I love occasionally. I don’t know what it is, but I just love wrapping up a special gift for him (call me sentimental).


I don’t suggest you completely break the bank, but I think dudes like to be spoiled sometimes too! Plus, it doesn’t have to be extravagant or expensive to be a hit.
