Valentine’s Day Gift Guide For Him
Valentine’s Day Gift Guide For Him
When it comes to my husband’s signature look, it’s that rugged, laid back west coast style that gets me every time. From flannels to jeans to graphic tees, when he finds what looks good on him, he wholeheartedly owns it. There’s nothing more attractive than a man who carries himself with confidence, right? In my case, I’ve been blessed with that, and so much more. Bobby’s the ultimate family man, thoughtful, caring with an infectious spirit. A modern-day Superman, if you will.
Every Valentine’s Day he showers me and my daughter with gifts, but this year I wanted to compile a gift guide for HIM. Instead of being showered with fine jewelry, stuffed animals that say “I Love You,” boxes of chocolate that are sure to mess up my New Year’s diet, and red roses that make me feel warm and fuzzy, let’s consider the men in our lives and how much they deserve! Bobby is an outstanding father, a wonderful dentist and a sensitive hubby. There’s so much he embodies, yet so little out there to show him how much he truly means to me. But with the help of Nordstrom, Valentine’s Day this year is a sinch. They carry a variety of goods that can help anyone find something for any type of guy in their lives—from the great outdoorsman to the tech-savvy dude. Here are my top gifts for the man in your life!
About 55 percent of Americans celebrate Valentine’s Day and spend an estimated $19.6 billion a year. More than $1.8 billion is spent on candy alone.

I find it so cool that you can personalize just about anything these days!
