No matter how much they pretend that it is not the case, guys adore surprise gestures and romantic gifts. Sending chocolates and flowers to your hubby’s workplace would be the ideal way to surprise him. If you feel that chocolates and flowers will not go that well with your guy, send him a gift that you know he will love, like a coffee mug, home-baked cookies, or personalized gifts (T-shirt).

2. Plan A Once-In-A-Lifetime Experience

Plan something extraordinary this year that will promise you both a once-in-a-lifetime experience. You can take him base jumping, skydiving, to a renowned amusement park, in a hot air balloon, or race-car driving. Whatever you plan to do, make sure it is be something he has expressed interest in at some point in time. If you sign up for skydiving, but he is afraid of heights, it won’t be a pleasant surprise for him. Instead, go for something you know he will surely enjoy.

3. Plan A Getaway Trip

Your hubby will surely love some alone time with you, so plan a fabulous weekend getaway for you and him. If money is not a problem, book a vacation to someplace you both have always dreamed of going to. If money is tight, book a room in an affordable hotel. You can also search for discounts. It doesn’t really matter if the hotel doesn’t offer five-star accommodations. Your husband will love to spend quality time with you, no matter where you go.

Cook up some heart-shaped pancakes, eggs, hash browns, freshly squeezed orange juice, and bacon — a delicious traditional breakfast that you can serve him in bed. If you are not a decent cook or would like to enjoy the morning cuddling in bed with your hubby instead of cooking, the order in breakfast.

5. Write Love Notes And Leave Them Around

An extremely cute but meaningful surprise would be writing notes to him, talking about things you adore about him. Put them inside his cereal box, in his wallet next to his credit cards, in his briefcase, inside his shoes, on the windshield of his car, within his sandwich, and anywhere else he may have access to during the day. Collect the notes and create a memory book with them to look at later.

6. Do Something He Loves

Every man has a hobby – something he likes doing that his wife doesn’t enjoy doing. For a special surprise for Valentine’s Day, give your hubby some alone time to do that. Whether it is playing poker with the guys, watching the game on TV, or playing golf at the local green, giving him some time for himself may be a great surprise. Even better, join him and watch him smile with glee.

7. Spruce Up His Car

Make him get an Uber to work so that you can take his car to a garage for some sprucing up. Get it washed, cleaned, and waxed so that it looks like it is very best when hubby gets home. Do something extra to make it look even nicer, such as adding paint protection, tinting the windows, or getting windshield protection.

8. Candlelit Dinner

Tell your hubby you are going to make Valentine’s Day reservations at a diner, but instead of doing that, set up a candlelit dinner at home. Line the way from your door to the dining table with flower petals, preferably rose petals. Light tall, red candlesticks on the table and dim the lights. Arrange for some bubbly with dinner. If you don’t feel like cooking, there’s no shame in ordering a nice dinner. You can still spend some quality time with him and make it special. There can be something very romantic about having dinner on the floor in a picnic style with a romantic game.

9. Set Up A Romantic Treasure Hunt

When your hubman gets home from the office, surprise him by planning a scavenger hunt and hand him the first clue to it. You may take him to various important points in your relationship, such as your first kiss, the first date, the proposal, etc. The final treasure can be whatever you want it to be, though we do recommend sexy lingerie – with you in it.

10. Make Coupons For Things He Loves

Create a coupon book for your hubby filled with things he adores. This is an awesome gift because you can personalize it especially for him. If he loves getting massages, make and give him a coupon for couples massage to spend some cozy time. If he loves his car, give him a coupon for a service on his car. He will adore the coupons made for him specifically – they are personal and cute.

11. Give Him What He Has Always Wanted

Your hubby has probably hinted sometime about something he really wants. Something he has been pining for – it could be a fitness booster, a tech gadget, a car service, or even a high-quality shaving kit that he has added to the shopping cart but never really tapped on the ‘buy now’ button — whatever it may be, it will mean a great deal to him if you get that thing for him on Valentine’s Day.

12. Buy Tickets To A Show

Does your better half love the movies or have a fascination for sports or a passion for music? Whatever it is, we can guarantee that he will absolutely love to receive tickets for an upcoming event on Valentine’s Day. Take his personality into account as you browse through upcoming events.

13. Recreate Your First Date

You and your hubby probably look back on the first time you went on a date with fond memories, as it was this day that led to this life-long relationship. Recreate your first date with your husband and show off your romantic side by trying some date night ideas with him this Valentine’s Day. This will keep the spark alive in your relationship, and you will realize how far you guys have come since that first date.

14. Treat Him Like A King For A Day

Spend the entire Valentine’s Day anticipating what he wants. It will blow his mind completely! Make his favorite breakfast. Leave notes with heart-touching Valentine’s Day wishes for your husband. Think about it – what would he like to see when he comes back home? If he would write down how his perfect day would be, what would he put on the list? Think about it carefully and then try to do as many things on that list as you possibly can.

15. Dedicate A Song To Him On The Radio

A classic, but something he would never expect! However, it will require some careful planning and possibly calling your local radio station over and over, but think about how much it will mean to him when he hears his name mentioned on the FM. Make sure he is listening to the radio precisely when your song comes on. You can also make some kind of dedication in a broadcasting event or show.

You can dedicate songs like “Thinking out Loud” by Ed Sheeran, “You’re Still The One” by Shania Twain, “Endless Love” by Lionel Richie and Diana Ross, and “Just the Way You Are” by Bruno Mars to your husband on Valentine’s day.

16. Cook A Meal Together

If you both have good cooking skills, cook a meal together. Make your favorite dish or bake a pizza and decorate each half with your preferred toppings. Play some music in the background, divide the responsibilities, and start cooking while having a light conversation or playing a game to keep the atmosphere romantic. You can also pick a new recipe off the internet and try your hands at it. And if things do not go as planned, you can always order some takeout!

Christy Ellingsworth, a blogger, shares the many ways she has surprised her husband over the years. She says spending a fortune to make your loved one feel special on Valentine’s Day is unnecessary. She explains how she made a custom gift basket, decorated the bedroom, cooked his favorite food, and many such ideas. She added, “IT’S the gesture that counts. If it comes from the heart, it’ll be amazing. Just think of the person you love, only of them and what they enjoy. Then imagine how you can make them happy (i).”

Make the most of the unique occasion of Valentine’s Day by telling your partner how much they mean to you. Your better half has been there for you through thick and thin, and you will never be able to thank them enough. However, these Valentine’s Day ideas for your husband will convey your love and warmth on your behalf. Of course, you will have to tailor the surprises to your husband’s preferences. It might be his finest Valentine’s Day yet, with the right food, entertainment, surprise, and you!
