Every year, it’s the same struggle: What to get my husband for Valentine’s Day.
Christmas and his birthday, I can figure out. I know what he likes.
But Valentine’s Day? I always feel like I have to come up with the perfect Valentine’s Day gift.
Something that celebrates our love and lets him know how much he means to me… but that isn’t too sappy. Something that isn’t too generic. Something that will strengthen our marriage, but something he’ll actually use and enjoy.
For a few years, I was completely stumped. I took the easy road out and did nothing special. But this year, I decided, things would be different.
Rather than getting him generic Valentine’s Day gifts (a wallet, socks, robe, etc)…
I wanted to find Christian Valentine’s Day gifts that would truly benefit our marriage.
Not just something for him or something for me — but Christian Valentine’s gifts we could use together to strengthen our relationship.
And in this post, I’m sharing these 5 Marriage-Boosting Christian Valentine’s Day gift ideas with you!
