What Do Men Want For Valentine's Day?

MIDLAND, Texas (Local 2/Fox 24) - From year to year, men buy millions of flowers, boxes of chocolates, jewelry pieces, and other gifts for their lady on Valentine's Day.

For ladies in love, however, the search for the perfect gift isn't always easy. Local 2 News went on the hunt for some gift ideas bound to make your man blush this holiday.

When it comes to picking out the perfect Valentine's gift for a guy, some have one thing in common.

"Guys are kind of easy!" Rusty Russell said. "You can't go wrong with candy, food in general."

But if you're trying to think outside of the box, what's the perfect gift?

Natalie Huey owns Signature Stag in Midland and tells us she has years of experiences helping women pick presents for every kind of guy.

She says it doesn't have to be as difficult as it seems.

"Always, you want to incorporate something that ties to their interest so they know you're thinking about them, they know you actually know what they want and they need," she said.

She adds spending more doesn't mean it's a better gift, it just depends how far your significant other takes the holiday.
 
Reports show women spend nearly half of what men do for Valentine's Day. The National Retail Federation reports that guys spend on average $108.00 for their sweethearts, whereas women spend around $53.00.
 
They estimate that's because flowers and jewelry tend to push up the cost for men, and very few women buy those items.
 
Believe it or not, Valentine's Day spending is actually down from last year, but that doesn't mean some people aren't going "all out" for the big day.
 
"It's harder to shop for them[men] in general just because a lot of guys do have everything," Huey said.
 
In that case, she says just bring it back to his interests and hobbies. If he's into hunting, get some supplies he could use. What about if he's a sports guy? Huey says you can't go wrong with something from his favorite team. If you just can't make up your mind or you're working on a budget, a personalized gift could be the way to go.
 
Huey suggests putting together a gift basket filled with little things they need and something that's practical.
 
Signature Stag wants to offer our viewers a special offer, so if you still need to snag your sweetheart the perfect gift, listen up! They're offering a free body wash with the purchase of their Billy Jealousy Illicit Cologne.
