If sipping tropical cocktails on the beach is your idea of the perfect holiday, consider a luxury vacation to a tropical destination. For couples, choose a secluded beach resort and surprise him with an all-inclusive romantic retreat in sunny Miami or exotic Cancun. For families, opt for a hotel located near the best parks and museums. Whichever location you choose, you’ll love spending the holidays relaxing in Florida’s most exciting city.

2. Quality Guy Time arianna2

Kill two birds with one stone and give the man in your life the gift of bonding with the men in his life. Buy a gift card and send the guys out to the local batting cages, bowling alley or go-kart raceway. While they are out of the house, grab a steaming cup of cappuccino and curl up with a good book.

3. Shake Up His Closetarianna3

Is your favorite man’s style in need of a slight makeover? Head out to Saks Fifth Avenue and buy him a versatile chic shirt that is sure to shake up his wardrobe. While there, pick out a trendy dress for yourself. Offer him a day at a relaxing spa and indulge in a luxurious massage and manicure for two. Then, treat him to an elegant dinner at a classy restaurant to show off his fresh look.
