Valentine’s Gifts for Your Husband
I’m proud to say I’ve been married almost 19 years … and not proud to say that Valentine’s Day is often a day that comes and goes without much fanfare in our household. Even though stores start stocking shelves with pink and red goodies the day after Christmas, Valentine’s Day is a holiday that sneaks up on me every year, and now, here it is coming up again on Friday! The kids always get a little treat, but my husband? Not so much. This year, I’ve picked out fun gifts I’d like to give him. If you need some inspiration for your own honey, here they are:
What would Valentine’s Day be without something sweet to eat? I think I’ll treat my sweetheart to a Southern classic this year—a red velvet cake ($39.99) with cream cheese frosting and filling. Perhaps this will follow a dinner date to my favorite fondue restaurant. (I’ll have to start dropping hints!)
A Tabasco fan since birth (he was born in Louisiana, after all), my husband will love a membership in the hot sauce of the month club ($56.85 for 3 months). Also available in 6- and 12-month installments, he’ll receive two varieties of gourmet, specialty hot sauces from award-winning chefs and restaurants nationwide.
We’re not royalty, but I think having our own coat of arms would be pretty great. I’ll add a bottle of wine and a secret message on the back of the lid (engraving is included in the price), and this wine box ($45) will be a unique gift treasured for years to come.
