Shruti Bhat
Flower, chocolates, cards, dinner, are all fine ideas, but thoughts come to a screeching halt when it comes to gifting something to your leading man.
Sweetest Day first originated in Cleveland during the Great Depression. Herbert Birch Kingston, a Cleveland candy store employee felt the need to spread some love to the city's orphans, poor, neglected, and the elderly.
So, he set out to spread some joy and sweetness in their lives with a little help from candy boxes. And so began the Sweetest Day celebration on the 3rd Saturday of October.
Over time, Sweetest Day evolved into another holiday to express romantic love. The primary idea is for women to express their love for their husbands or boyfriends with gifts. And as you know that it is difficult to gift a person who has everything, we have put together a list of Sweetest Day gift ideas for him that could prove helpful.

Box of Candy

Keeping the origin of this holiday in mind, the first gift has to be candies. You can gift your sweetheart with any kind of candies that he likes viz., milk duds, almond joy, pop rocks, red vines, sugar daddy, salt water taffy, etc.
You can even consider something silly like candy cigars, gummy dentures, wax lips, just to add a little humor to the holiday. If you want to go all out with this gift, then you can consider gourmet chocolates and gift baskets.

Coffee Maker

If your darling loves his cup of Joe, and truly believes that the first cup of coffee can either make or break a day, then it's time he has a coffee maker. And a good coffee maker deserves to be accompanied with some good quality coffee.
If he has a coffee maker, you can always consider gifting him a travel mug, personalized coffee mugs, etc.

Pack of T-shirts

We all know what men feel about shopping. So, since you are presented with this golden opportunity to not just go shopping, but also gift him something, why not choose for him a pack or set of t-shirts.
This will not just give him a new look, but also encourage him to give his old t-shirts a well-deserved retirement.

Portable Speakers

What can you gift a guy who has it all? Especially if he already has the latest gizmos like the latest smartphone, tablet, e-reader, laptop, so on and so forth. Don't lose hope, the gadgets always require accessories.
For instance portable Bluetooth speakers, headphones, skins and covers for the gadgets, portable chargers, etc.

Men's Accessories

If his job requires him to constantly wear a formal attire, then add a splash of sophistication to his office wardrobe and look by gifting him silk ties, bows, cologne, cufflinks, and a tie clip.


Remember those gorgeous eyes that you fell in love with? Well, they need to be protected from pollution and harsh rays of the sun. An attractive and fashionable pair of sunglasses makes for a great Sweetest Day gift.

Army Knife

Army knives with their multi-tool functions like a large and small blade, can and bottle opener, file, screw driver, cork screw, scissors, and much more, all packed into a tiny little package makes it a must-have accessory not only to possess but also to gift.
Some even come with a key ring hoop so that he can attach it to his keys and carry it everywhere.


If your guy loves to tamper around the house, making something or repairing all that is broken, gift him a fully-equipped tool kit. Throw in a power drill, screws, nuts, bolts, nails, screw drivers, etc., and he'll thank you for days to come.

Whiskey and Whiskey Stones

For those who love Scotch and Scotch Whiskeys, it is a crime not to be gifted with a bottle of the finest that liquor has to offer. If that's not what you wish to give him, then whiskey glasses, bar kit, and whiskey stones, will also do the trick.
If you have the money, you can buy anything from any store. But the best gift of all has to be the loving moments and precious time you share with one another.
