Idea #1: Ammo.

On the surface, it may sound less than romantic, but if you’ve ever seen the look in a gun owner’s eyes after opening a box filled with good quality ammo, it’s a sight to behold. Dress it up a bit by stashing several hundred rounds of his favorite caliber in a heart-shaped tin. Or, make her heart flutter by stacking boxes of ammo in a unique shape and then top it off with a red bow.

Idea #2: New Gun.

Adding a new pistol, revolver, rifle, tactical weapon, or shotgun to the family is always good fun, but make an event out of it this year by taking your special someone to your favorite gun shop and let them select their Valentine’s Day present in person. That way, they can complete all the ownership paperwork appropriately, and if you take them to a fully-featured shooting range/gun store, they can often try before they buy.

Idea #3: A Shooting Experience.

Whether you and your sweetheart are experienced shooters or you are new to the sport, consider an immersive shooting experience this year to bring you closer together. Imagine standing next to each other and taking on a Zombie Apocalypse shooting course. Or lighting up the bad guys with a volley of 5.56mm rounds from an AR-15. You’ll not only have a blast experiencing various weapons and shooting scenarios, you’ll also bond with your date over the high-adrenaline experience.

Idea #4: Chocolate Guns.

Instead of plying him or her with a box of store-bought chocolates that you can find at a drugstore or supermarket, order a “gun-shaped” piece of chocolate that even comes in its own fitted case. www.chocolateammo.com is one place to find these cool Valentine’s gifts - so check it out if you’re looking for an alternative to traditional (read: boring) chocolate.

Idea #5: Gun-Styled Jewelry.

Ladies who are just as comfortable at the shooting range as they are at a boutique shop tend to love jewelry styled after popular guns, ammo, or outdoor themes. From tactical jewelry and adornments to simple gun-shaped earrings, you’ll find dozens of ideas to make her feel loved and cherished this Valentine’s Day… and she’ll look incredible wearing her new jewelry at the range!

This Valentine’s Day, make your special someone feel loved and appreciated by giving them gun-related gifts that will make their heart fill with joy!
