Whatever the occasion, your husband deserves a special and thoughtful present. (man and woman image by Ramona smiers from Fotolia.com)

Whether it's his birthday, your wedding anniversary, Valentine's Day, Christmas or any other occasion, spend a moment to consider what your husband really needs and what gift would best reflect your love for him. This will help you choose the most suitable present for your man. Make your husband a handmade present or personalise a store-bought item just for him.

Birthday Present Ideas

Consider what your husband wants and surprise him with it. Look for clues he may drop during conversations or when shopping, or simply consider his hobbies or tastes. Ideas include tickets to a local or national sporting event starring his favourite team, cuff links engraved with his initials, a new toolbox in his favourite colour, a new laptop or electronic gadget he's wanted or professional sports lessons to help improve his game. You could also arrange a dinner party to celebrate your husband's birthday at home with close friends.

Anniversary Present Ideas

When choosing an anniversary present, consider one that represents the journey you have made together as a couple. For instance, create a scrapbook with photos and memorabilia dating back to the time you started dating and compile them in chronological order. Alternatively, compile a picture album of important events from the treasured time you've spent together and add a handwritten caption under each. Treat your man with tickets to your honeymoon destination to spend quality time together. Consider a traditional anniversary present that you can tailor to his taste, such as paper gift for the first anniversary could translate into a new book by his favourite author or a handmade book of coupons with romantic activities for the two of you to perform. Wood for the fifth anniversary could mean a cigar and humidor set with his initials or a framed professional photo of the two of you.

Valentine's Day Ideas

Incorporate a romantic gift for Valentine's Day that aims at strengthening the bond between the two of you, specially if you have been busy with the kids or work lately. Give your husband a gift basket with a new pair of silk boxers, new lingerie for you in his favourite colour, and speciality wine and cheese to keep both of you occupied during the evening. Alternatively, create a home spa in your bedroom by spreading red rose petals over the floor and bed, placing scented candles throughout the room and playing soft instrumental music on the stereo. Rub aromatherapy oils on your husband's back during your massage.

Christmas Present Ideas

Opt for a handmade item this Christmas instead of a generic store-bought one. Knit your husband a sweater, scarf or gloves in his favourite colour to keep the cold out. Make him a painting or portrait, macramé a plant hanger in red and white or bake a heart-shaped cake iced in red and white with marzipan figures of Santa Claus at the top.
