Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. Many of us can’t wait to be shown extra love and affection for the holiday. From chocolate-covered strawberries to romantic dinners and more, women always get pampered. But what about the men?
Sorry to break it to you, but gone are the days when Valentine’s Day was considered solely to celebrate women. In 2023, Valentine’s Day has evolved into a holiday that celebrates the person you love, no matter who they are. In fact, this trend of women getting men a gift for love day has been steadily increasing. Just in 2016, Google searches on “what to buy him” spiked, while online searches for “what to buy her” slightly dipped.
So what is there to get a man for this special love day? First, you must decide what man in your life is getting a gift. As we said above, the holiday is about celebrating the person you love. That isn’t specific to just a boyfriend. Your father, brother, best friend, son, nephew, or cousin can also get some of your Valentine’s Day love. For the purposes of this guide, however, we will focus on what a significant other would be interested in receiving for the holiday,
A 2020 YouGov survey asked about 1300 men and women what they wanted for Valentine’s Day. The response from men was very plain and simple. About 20% or one in five men said they wanted sexual acts/favors. 16% said a card, 15% said chocolates/candy, 11% said wine or liquor, and 9% said electronics.
The same survey also compared women’s desires to have household chores taken over to that of men’s. While 18% of women who are married and with kids would love a day off, only 4% of men desire the same.
