Ladies, Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and I know we’re all debating what to get for our significant others. Whether you’ve been dating for three months or three years, this is a great opportunity to do something sweet for your special someone. But one thing’s for sure, if you don’t have a title, you don’t buy a gift. So, if you’re someone’s girlfriend, here’s a quick guide to help you pick out the perfect gift.

No. 1 – Legos

Legos are a great go-to gift for your boyfriend. You can pick a set to build together or a set that matches his interests. With a wide range of options, you can purchase a Lego set that works for your budget. Not to mention, you can buy Lego sets at nearly every major retailer and online. It doesn’t matter if you are a Lego fanatic or have never touched a single block in your entire life, it’s easy to pick a set that your boyfriend will love. Not only will he enjoy building it, but he will also appreciate the time you spend together during the process.

No. 2 – Watch

Have a bit of a bigger budget? A high-quality watch can last a man a lifetime. Many jewelers have a wide range of selections based on preferences and price range. Some watches are for casual, everyday wear, while others might be more suitable for formal occasions. Even if you aren’t sure which watch your boyfriend will wear, you could plan a date around him picking out his watch. Just WATCH out, or else he may fall even more in love with you!

No. 3 – Car Care Package

If you have a boyfriend who likes cars, or just has a car of his own, a car care package could be the perfect gift for him. This gift comes with a little more creative freedom because you can put practically anything in it. Some of the best small gifts you could include are air fresheners, interior wipes, a phone charger and you could even make him a personal driving playlist. If your boyfriend is super into cars, you could include small gifts that could help him detail the interior and exterior of his car. Include anything you think he might like; you got this girl!

No. 4 – The Essentials

Some boys are very particular about their hygiene routine, while others would be perfectly content using a 10-in-one body wash for all steps of their routine. If your boyfriend falls under the second category, Valentine’s Day could be the perfect opportunity for you to help him upgrade his hygiene routine. This is another gift that you can get super creative with. Body wash, shampoo, razors or aftershave are all great gifts to include in this essentials package. If you wanted to take it one step further, you could get him other small essentials like his favorite brand of socks or preferred protein powder. Whatever you choose to include in the essentials package for your boyfriend, make sure that it has practical use and, more importantly, that it gets the girlfriend’s stamp of approval.

No. 5 – Cologne

Cologne is a great gift for any guy. If your boyfriend already has a favorite cologne, this is a great opportunity to get him a refill so that he never runs out. If your boyfriend doesn’t have a signature scent or jumps around between cheap colognes, this is the perfect chance to invest in a more expensive cologne. You can consider the scents you and he would enjoy, and you could even pick a cologne with aesthetic packaging.

No. 6 – Something Sweet

At the end of the day, Valentine’s Day is about love. So, if you’re still unsure what to buy your boyfriend, make him something instead! You could surprise him with his favorite meal and dessert, make him an adorable hoodie with your anniversary embroidered on the sleeve or you can plan a day of quality time spent doing things that he loves. No matter what it is, he will see the thought behind it and greatly appreciate it.

With these six ideas for Valentine’s Day gifts for your boyfriend, he’s sure to be impressed by his gift and your thoughtfulness.
