10 Gift ideas for the romantic guy
So you nabbed yourself a romantic one. Good for you! Shopping for the hopeless romantic man in your life can be both easy and tricky. Check out our top romantic gift ideas for him and get ready to feel the passion!
Mix tape (err playlist)
While mix tapes aren't exactly too popular anymore, mix playlists are! Thank goodness for iTunes. Conjure up a list of songs that are meaningful to your relationship with him. Whether it's the song that was playing when you first met or the song that made him realize he loved you, a custom playlist will mean more than a store-bought CD. Download your songs at iTunes.
If he's not just a sweet man to you, but he also has a sweet tooth, then a fruity gift will be a delicious surprise for him. Choose from different kinds of arrangements, including these holiday Edible Arrangements and include a romantic message with it.
Custom photo blanket
This may sound cheesy, but if he's a romantic, he'll love this. Pick out a cute photo of the two of you where you're kissing, holding hands or being affectionate and have it printed onto a blanket. When you're not with him, he can cuddle up with the blanket and think of you. Get great deals on photo blankets at Shutterfly.
Let's be honest -- this man's voice and lyrics can make any girl go weak in her knees. Put together a list of David Gray's most romantic songs and let them play while you make him a lavish dinner. After hearing a couple of his songs, you may end up having dessert first. Buy his music at Amazon.
When he comes home after a long day at work, pamper him with a massage. Give him a nice, long back rub and then work your way to down to his feet and give him a foot massage. Not only will he love the feeling of being pampered by you, he'll be super relaxed for the rest of the night. Use this Divine Calm Relaxing massage oil on him from the Body Shop.
Personalized photo frame
Your romantic guy will love a large photo frame of the two of you with a personalized message. Let him show your love off by hanging this up in his home. This "Love Brought Us Together" 5x7 personalized photo frame is romantic and will bring a tear to his eye.
Surprise him and get concert tickets to his favorite band. Tell him you're planning a romantic night for you two so you have his schedule clear. Go to dinner first, but don't tell him where you're going after. After dinner, tell him what concert you are taking him to and watch his eyes light up. He'll love the thoughtful surprise. Find tickets at Ticketmaster.com.
Bed and breakfast getaway
Get ready for an uber romantic weekend when you book a bed and breakfast stay with your man. Plan it in advance so you can make sure he can take the time off. Tell him you're taking him on a weekend/one-night getaway and surprise him with a bed and breakfast stay at a quaint, quiet inn. Find a bed and breakfast inn near you here.
Get him a pet
If you both are serious and ready for a pet together, surprise him with a puppy or kitten. Make sure you get a pet that you both want. If he's a dog person and you're a cat person, then maybe you should further discuss what kind of pet you are getting. An animal is a great way to strengthen the bond between you two. Rescue an animal in need from a shelter by visiting the Humane Society.
Plan a cruise
Go on an exotic vacation by going on a cruise together. Secretly plan the cruise and make sure he takes off work for it. Cruises are a great getaway for couples considering they feature great entertainment, endless food and romantic walks on the ship. Browse destinations on Carnival for a bunch of offerings.
