Valentine’s Gifts Men Say They Really Want
Shopping for guys for this holiday isn’t always easy, so if you’re still stumped about what to give your man this Valentine’s Day, here are a few suggestions from real dudes who answered a Reddit Ask Men about what they’d like to get from their Valentine.
- For you to be grateful for whatever they give you - “Whatever else you give him, the best thing might be no pressure and your genuine enthusiasm or appreciation for what he gives you.”
- For you to say nice things - “Tell him how romantic this is and how wonderful of a time you are having and be affectionate towards him and just make him feel loved, like he done good.”
- A fellow anti-Valentine - “I’d just love for her to say ‘I hate Valentine’s Day. It’s a stupid commercial holiday and we’re not going to celebrate it. Ever.”
- Attention - “Breakfast in bed, hugs, little gifts, crazy sex, anything that shows I mean the world to her goes a looooong way.”
- Something he hasn’t asked you for - “Anything he’s been asking you to do to him that you’ve not been interested in? Maybe sexually, maybe not.”
- Something meaningful - “I prefer to get something meaningful. I don't want a video game or DVD that just about anyone could buy me. I want something thoughtful, that she bought because she just knew I'd like it as soon as she saw it."
- A burger - "Treat him to a good burger and beer."

Money for medals ...
We all know about the lucrative endorsement deals Olympians get for winning Gold, but did you know the United States Olympic Committee gives athletes a cash prize for each winning medal? Yep, each Gold medal earns an athlete $37,000. Silver gets $22,500 and Bronze gets $15,000. Team sports have to split the earnings evenly, but individuals get the whole check to themselves. The payouts don’t come from taxpayers, but from private donors. (Good Housekeeping)
