Want awesome, sexy, and romantic gift ideas for him for Valentine’s Day, Christmas, or for your anniversary? Read on for my top romantic items you can gift your husband!
This is some of the best gifts that can be the perfect romantic birthday gift, and unique gift idea for a Valentines Day gift. You can also use these for a romantic date night or a romantic weekend getaway! You’re sure to find the perfect gift here!
It’s crazy how I totally lucked out by marrying the man I did. He’s a natural romantic and gift giver. He loves to show his love for me by his actions, words, and gifts, and not just for birthdays, anniversaries or other special occasions.
No, my husband brings me flowers after we had a fight, or I had a particularly rough day at home with the kids. He’ll buy me chocolates when it’s the Time of the Month because he knows I’ll want them. He’ll pick me up my favorite soda, chocolates, ice cream, or candy bar because he knows I’d like it, and rarely splurge on myself to get.
My husband even enjoys picking out and buying clothes for me!
Seriously, he’s amazing. And I’m lucky to have such a doting husband! If only I were as doting to him. Unfortunately, gift giving, spending money, and being romantic are not my personal strong suit. Like, really not.
So, when it comes time to give a gift to my husband for the more romantic occasions like Valentine’s Day and our anniversary, I’m not usually flush with ideas, let alone for a normal Tuesday.
I polled some friends, searched the internet, and found some amazing products and ideas that scream romantic, thoughtful, and sometimes sexy too! I hope that if you want to give a gift that’s more lovey-dovey than practical (which are the type of gifts I usually prefer to give and receive) you’ll find something amazing on this list!
**Please note I am focusing more on romantic gift ideas for him rather than romantic gestures or romantic dates for him. The following are more specifically things to give him, like in a box, than romantic ways to show your affection, even though some gifts you’ll enjoy together.
Romantic Gift Ideas for Him – Perfect for Valentine’s Day or Anniversary (or whenever)
A Picture of You
Your husband loves you and thinks you are beautiful. Gift him a beautifully framed and/or personalized picture of yourself or you and him together.
Or you could hire someone to hand draw or paint your favorite picture of him or of the both of you. Artists on Etsy offer this if you don’t know someone in person (and sorry, I’m not currently making any, though I have drawn a picture of my husband and framed it for him as an anniversary gift one year and he loved it!).
If you’re feeling extra brave and think it’s something you’d both enjoy, you could also look at doing a Boudoir photo shoot (Groupon usually has great deals on a shoot too), though maybe keep the photo in the bedroom.
You can make a Photo Mosaic Print to make it more unique, or print the picture onto something like a mug, calendar, blanket, or glass (and more).
These have been super popular for years now, and for good reason. It’s a fun, easy way to get out of your comfort zone and spoil your spouse. There are lots of places and ways to get cute pre-designed love coupons from. A few of my favorites are:
- Custom LoveCoups Booklets are professional looking and fun. See my review of the LoveCoups I made my husband. Use code SSGEN10 to get 10% off your order.
- Naughty Coupon Book from Etsy.
Your Story. Your Love.
Your guy loves you and there are few things more romantic than your love story! Why not gift your husband or boyfriend a book, scrapbook, photo album, journal, or binder that commemorates your relationship. Here are some great ideas:
- A customized LoveBook. Use code SSGEN10 to get 10% off after Valentine’s.
- Put together a slideshow with music and notes about your relationship.
- What I love about Us Fill-in-the-blank journal from Amazon.
However, if you want to memorialize a specific date or place, there are some really cute ideas for that too.
- Custom Sound Wave Art Print of your vows, favorite song, poem, or whatever audio clip. Love this idea from Etsy!
- Original hand painted watercolor artwork of your love song from a synesthete on Etsy.
- Wedding vows on Canvas decor gift idea from Etsy.
Seriously, a written expression of your love and feelings for your man is super romantic, thoughtful, and kind. He’ll LOVE it and cherish it (well, at least if he’s like my husband at all).
Here are some ideas to get you started and keep the ideas going should you want or need some prompts, or want a cute way to format and gift your letters and notes of affection and adoration.
- Love Letters Kit from The Dating Divas
- A customized LoveBook. Use code SSGEN10 to get 10% off after Valentine’s.
- Open When… Love Letters Kit from The Dating Divas.
- Letters to the Love of My Life… Read Me When gift from Amazon.
- Message in a Bottle Gift Set from Etsy.
Sexy Romantic Notes, Gifts, and Games for Him
Maybe the romance simply needs to be turned up a notch in the bedroom by making it fun and flirty.
Here are some great romantic gifts for him that are also sexy!
- Lingerie. Let’s be honest. Fancy, sexy underwear is most certainly a gift for him, and sure to add some romance to the bedroom.
- The Game of Love Bedsheets! Who said your bedsheets had to be boring?
Physical touch is romantic because it’s intimate. For some extra romantic gifts that involve massages, consider the following:
- Foot Massages. Give them yourself at home, or go together to get foot massages and/or pedicures! I love checking Groupon for deals on local massages.
- Couples Massage. Get pampered alongside your partner! Again, check out Groupon to save on a couples massage.
- Take the online Melt: Couples Massage Course and you’ll be able to give each other amazing massages from home, whenever!
To make your massage extra special, be sure to pick up a massage oil candle or Bath and Body Works massage oil.
Flip the Switch – Give Him Flowers and Candy
I know this may seem cheesy, but seriously, sometimes your man wants to be surprised with flowers and candy! My husband, though, might actually prefer if I gifted him a large plant for inside our home, and no, not a plastic one.
Flowers smell great, liven up a space, and are romantic to receive. And who doesn’t love getting their favorite treat, just because?
Groupon always has some great offer for flower deliveries too! Or, if your guy would prefer, get him one of those edible arrangements instead or a FruitBouquet.
Something He Wants
It seems to me that many men simply want to receive gifts that are stuff they actually want! To them, that says romance!
Giving them that new TV, that pocket knife, watch, gun, magazine subscription, vacation, camera, tablet, show tickets, or experience gifts he’s been asking for, or hinting at, for months definitely lets him know that you are listening to him, understand him, and know exactly what he really wants (and what’s more romantic than that?).
So, as a reminder, sometimes it’s best to not overthink the gifts we give in order to be “romantic.” Take your man’s cues, figure out what he wants, and surprise him with it!
If he wants gifts for outdoorsy guys, then gift him one!
You could also try gifting him one of several subscription boxes for men including a men’s clothing subscription box if he’s into fashion and clothes.
I’m hoping that gifting one or more of these to my husband will let him know how much I love him. I hope your guy really loves one of these too!
What is a thoughtful gift for my husband?
It can be hard to think of the best romantic gifts. The best part is that quality time together can be the perfect romantic gift! A great idea and an amazing gift is to spend special moments together. Going to your favorite restaurant or making your favorite meal together at home is a special gift that can also be a special date.
What do I buy for a hopeless romantic?
Do you have a guy who loves gifts and loves love? Romantic dinners are a great gift idea! You can also give a personalized gift like a fun gadget with his name on it, a glass bottle with a love not inside, or even a wooden watch with your own handwriting creating your own message.
Another fun idea is to make a list of memorable experiences that include some of his favorite things. Sometimes finding the right gift means that you need to find the perfect place to explore together! You can create a romantic adventure challenge that takes place in a special place and can be a perfect way to create unique romantic gifts that he’ll remember forever!
Let me know what your husband finds romantic, and maybe I’ll add it to my list!

Your list of gifts is very impressive, I think we have to give him some unique and expressive gifts so that he can feel special and loved. Because we are the only one in his life to make him feel special else no one is there for him.
