Are you struggling to find the perfect gift for your military sweetheart this Valentine's day?
When people think of the military, images of pink hearts and cupids don’t exactly come to mind. It can be difficult to find the right gift for someone who’s more comfortable in a firefight than at a candlelit dinner.
The good news is that finding a Valentine's Day gift for your service member doesn’t have to be hard. Read on for 9 Valentine’s Day presents perfect for even the most gung-ho military man or woman.
Soap isn’t normally something that comes to mind when people think of gung-ho service members. But this soap is different. Packaged in a military-style crate, this soap is intricately detailed to look like a Glock Pistol and a World War Two style hand grenade. The detail is so thorough, that at first glance your military spouse will think you actually got them some weapons!
If your Valentine is deployed or away at training, you can be sure that they’ll always appreciate some homemade food. After weeks or months of eating the same military food every day, a nice homemade treat is always a great gift! Take a few hours to bake and send them their favorite homemade cookies or cupcakes - and give them a taste of home for Valentine's Day.
You’ll probably be pretty hard pressed to get your service member to wear any type of lovey-dovey locket. But what if there was a locket that didn’t look like a heart-shaped embarrassment? The good news is that there is! This bullet casing locket is made out of two spent cartridges and looks cool enough for even the most macho military member to wear. The locket also comes with three pieces of parchment paper that fit perfectly inside. When you gift this locket, you can be sure your military sweetheart will keep your words close to their heart.
Man Crates are not your average subscription box. Instead of sending makeup samples or perfume every month, each Man Crate includes items such as knife making kits, whiskey, and cigars. And despite the name, Man Crates make great presents for your female service member as well! Each box comes in an actual crate that needs a crowbar to open, so you can be sure your gift will arrive safely. The best part about Man Crates is that they offer a 10% military discount too!
Is your military Valentine more of a beer drinker than a wine connoisseur? If so, this artillery shell bottle opener could be the perfect gift for them. Made to look like a miniature replica of a M107 155mm High Explosive round, your artilleryman (or woman) will appreciate the realistic detail. Most importantly, you’ll give them a tool to help them open one of the most important drinks for any service member - beer.
This gift is something that any service member who spends time in the field will appreciate. Styled after a Beretta shotgun shell, it’s just plain cool. But the AISI 420 stainless steel blade is also really useful too. It’s perfect for cutting 550 cord, opening MRE’s, and a variety of other tasks. When you buy this for your military Valentine, you can be sure it will be put to good use.
If you’re short on cash or want to give your sweetheart a more personalized Valentine’s Day gift, then this is the present for you. Simply download the template and fill out the coupons with redeemable activities like date nights and backrubs. This gift is especially great if your service member is deployed or away at training. These coupons will give them something to look forward to when they get back home.
