Smug-Worthy Valentine's Day Gift Ideas for Men

Subtitle: "I Meant to Post This Earlier, but Then I Got a Flat Tire. And Then the Car Battery Died. No, Really. All Because I Went to the Craft Store (!) and Was on My Way Home to Test Drive a Complicated Recipe. This is What I Get for Trying to Be a Suzy Homemaker Type. Lesson learned, Universe. Lesson Learned."

Not to get all cliched about it, but we women don't actually need to buy our men anything for Valentine's Day - they just want one thing, after all . . .

. . . our undying love.

(What, you thought I was going to say s-e-x? Not a chance - I have a prudish pretense to keep up here at the Pretty. Besides, I couldn't figure out how to import "sex" into Polyvore.)

For those of us not inclined to give just the, er, standard gift, finding the right gift for our respective men can be a bit of a problem. If only they were as easy as we women . . . for example, this Smug Married is delighted with any gift falling within the Holy Trinity - jewelry, spa gift cards, and more jewelry - though I'd happily accept anything my favorite blogging Smug Newlywed, Belle on Heels, assembled here. Hint, hint.

Here are the best, Smug-worthy gifts for the boys, from budget to major bacon:

The 'tash glasses are brill - I would have to opt for those. I am rather sad the model doesn't come with the rugby - that would have been a great VDAy gift, for me. I just realised when I posted your birthday joke it was wrong. I should quit blogging when shattered.Sometimes Mummies just need to GO TO BED ;)

Bacon makes everything better!

Putting in a plug for one of my favorite gifts I've given my husband-a boudoir portrait session (of me, obviously!) on our 10th anniversary. It was totally empowering for me and a huge surprise for him.

That Filson bag is a classic and will last forever. Dare I say it is the Chanel Black Quilted Flap bag for men....
