valentine's day gift ideas for your man {mild, medium, and *spicy*}

We talked about fun things to get your special someone last February, but it's that season again. Here's a friendly reminder before you go and plunk down money that you don't need to on things your lover prolly doesn't want:

MEN ARE CHEAP. AND EASY.

(you can download this and other flirty tags from last year's post here)


YOUR MAN WANTS YOU.
Or, more specifically, to get WITH you.

This is the one time of the year that you can go out of your comfort zone and get naughty with your hubby even if that isn't your usual style.

Correction: ESPECIALLY if it isn't your usual style.

There is nothing more sexy to your man than his lovely wife being the aggressor.
I dare you to find a boy that disagrees.

MILD

For those of you who are too shy (or maybe just beginning a relationship?), you can keep it sweet and simple with these little bags found in the Michaels dollar bins in pack of two. Fill up with candy and call it done. You can go the extra mile and add a "BEE Mine" tag. 
I'd call these conservative enough for friends and teachers too, no?




MEDIUM

Those DIY pillow boxes are the perfect size for a Valentine's Day surprise.
Sure, they could hold candy or a gift card, but they're *really* exciting {literally} for him to open when they're holding something else.


(This Diet Pepsi box had an NFL logo on it and I couldn't resist. Football and lace = two of my hubby's favorite things to see live and close-up...if you know what I mean.)


If you're thinking "Why would my husband want to open sexy panties?", you have obviously never given him the chance. I swear to you he will not be disappointed.


SPICY

Feeling especially bold?

 Put together a "Choose Your Own Adventure Kit" which is also a fun for a Bridal Shower, Bachorlette party, or to give to your sister at Christmas to open in front of the whole family.



 Taking it old school with the plastic wrap (a la Kathy Bates in Fried Green Tomatoes), but with a tagline of "Clings Tight Without A Fight", it definitely had to be included.
The best part about this is you don't need instructions: it's all about creativity.  
Okay, maybe one suggestion wouldn't hurt...

    3. Better late than never. Men don't have expiration dates on seduction anyway...

    1. I am printing out this comment to frame on the wall and hang on his side of the bed. Right above the pile of my dirty clothes that I forgot to pick up. Again.
