A lot of people feel that Valentine’s Day is mostly a holiday for women to get spoiled by their men or their closest girlfriends. Cue Galentine’s! However, Valentine’s Day can also be a great opportunity for women to spoil their men, even if it’s with a small treat and a great set of lingerie underneath her clothes to say thank you for such an amazing date night… wink, wink! All the pink, hearts, and flowers that fill the stores have nothing against these fun ideas to gift your man this Valentine’s Day. Keep reading to find my suggestions with ideas on how to make these gifts go the extra mile.
Four Roses Small Batch Bourbon: The story behind the creation of this bourbon is inspired on a love story. Founder Paul Jones, Jr. became smitten with a Southern Belle he sent a proposal to. She then responded that if she were to say “yes”, she would wear a corsage of roses on her gown for the upcoming grand ball. She showed up wearing a corsage with four red roses. Later, as a symbol of his devotion and passion, he named his bourbon “Four Roses” and transferred all that love into making this fine liquor. HAUTE TIP: After your date is over, invite him in and present him with his new bottle of bourbon, as you impress him with your bartending skills by making a cocktail for both of you to enjoy, like this Vanilla Bean Old Fashioned or Pecan Pie Martini. – $29.99
Mission Belt: Give him the gift of fashion, comfort, perfect fit, and confidence with a belt from this company that is on a mission to breathe fresh life into a tired accessory. These holeless belts will last longer and will always fit exactly how he needs them to. Go festive with a red one or classic with a black one. These belts also spread the love to people in need as $1 from every sale is used to fight hunger and poverty worldwide through micro-lending. HAUTE TIP: Gift him this belt before leaving the house and encourage him to try it on and wear it to your date. He’ll be so comfortable! Then, when you get home, surprise him coming out with only your sexy lingerie on, take the belt off of him seductively, and use it as a sexy prop in bed. – $39.95 | Take 14% with code VALENTINE14
