Want to surprise your boyfriend, fiancé or husband with the perfect Valentine’s Day gift this year? Some guys can be super hard to shop for, but there are tons of great gifts out there for the #1 man in your life!
No matter your budget, this is the year to put some real thought into finding a meaningful gift that he’ll love and enjoy. Ready to do some shopping? Here are 37 of our favorite Valentine’s gifts for him!
Constructed from food-grade 18/8 stainless steel, the Hydro Flask Beer Growler holds 64 ounces of beer, water, soda or whatever else he wants to pour inside. Double-wall insulation keeps beverages cold for hours, while the stainless steel interior doesn’t retain the flavor or taste of whatever was in there last. A tight lid makes it perfect for camping trips, tailgates and days at the beach!
If your man loves to spend time outdoors, the Kikkerland Portable BBQ Suitcase is the perfect way to say I love you! This is a super cool option for the guy who loves to go camping or tailgating.
It’s an all-in-one design with a stainless steel grate for cooking and an ash catcher so you can easily deposit your ashes. It runs on charcoal and has a cooking surface big enough to grill up a meal for two people.
Does your partner wear a suit and tie to the office every day? If so, a pair of monogram cufflinks will set his business attire apart! We love these simple, round steel cufflinks for their modern look and classic design.
Engrave them with two or three letters and select from steel, rose gold or gunmetal finishes to suit his sense of style. A personalized gift is a thoughtful gift, so if he likes to dress like a gentleman, he’s sure to love these!
Pretty much every golfer we know is on a mission to perfect his putt. And that’s what makes this Par Three Putting Green a great gift. With this, he can practice that putt even when it’s raining or snowing outside.
Made in the USA from PET resin, this kidney-shaped putting green has built-in “sand trap” cutouts to catch missed putts. It includes three practice cup cutouts to catch your ball, a non-skid backing so it stays put and one flat edge so you can position it against a wall if you’re limited on space. Make it an even grander gift by including a new pack of golf balls!
Ideal for use at home, in the office or on the go, the JBL FLIP 4 Bluetooth Speaker is the gift he can use anywhere and everywhere. Waterproof and portable, this speaker offers up to twelve hours of playtime on a full charge.
It can be connected wirelessly to one device or two so you can control playback from two devices simultaneously. Because it’s waterproof, it’s perfect for use on a camping trip, outside by the pool or at the beach. You can even take it in the pool or on the lake. Even if it gets submerged in water, it won’t get destroyed.
The Lululemon City Sweat Jogger Pants are one of the best Valentine’s Day gifts you can buy for the active guy who loves to lounge. These jogger pants are made from super soft and breathable French terry fabric.
They’re detailed with a drawstring around the waist and secure pockets to hold phones or keys when on the move. Make it an even better gift by teaming it with a matching hoodie! Worn as a set or with a tee-shirt, these pants are perfect for running, working out or kicking back at home.
7. Chirp Wheel
The Chirp Wheel is the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for the guy who suffers from back pain or is looking for an excellent way to prevent back pain before it happens. The Chirp Wheel comes in three sizes.
The small 6″ wheel offers deep tissue stimulation to prevent injuries in the thoracic and lumbar regions. The medium 10″ wheel also helps relieve muscle pain, relieve pressure on the spine and nerves, plus improve posture.
The largest wheel at 12″ helps strengthen the muscles around the spine, prevent back injuries and prevent conditions such as herniated discs, osteoporosis and arthritis. Chirp wheels can be bought individually based on size, but we recommend the three-pack that includes all three wheels.
If he has a collection of vinyl records, the Larisa Vinyl Storage Rack is the perfect present for V-day. This unique gift is made from metal and features a durable design with multiple slots to hold all of your favorite LPs.
The flat shelf on top can be used to hold a small turntable. This record rack measures less than 11″ wide, making it perfect for apartments and small spaces.
Thinking about getting him some new whiskey glasses for Valentine’s Day? Instead of getting him a generic set, make it a bit more personal with these Vintage Baseball Park Map Glasses. These glasses are etched with overhead images of classic MLB stadiums.
They’re sold as individuals, so you can get him one from his favorite stadium or pick up a few etched with different parks. Choose from Fenway, Wrigley Field, Candlestick Park, Veterans Stadium, Yankee Stadium and five other legendary parks.
Each one is created with great detail for a look that any baseball fan is sure to love. Make this gift even more luxurious by including a bottle of his favorite whiskey, Scotch or bourbon.
Okay, so it’s not the most romantic or sentimental gift you can buy… But the Toshiba 1TB External Hard Drive is something that he will definitely be able to use.
Offering one terabyte of storage, this portable external hard drive is essential, especially if he’s been slacking on backing up any files. If he’s a gamer, Toshiba also makes a hard drive specifically for storing video games.
Is he still listening to his music and podcasts on an old pair of wired earbuds? Give him an upgrade this Valentine’s Day with a pair of Apple AirPods Pro. The AirPods Pro offers high-quality sound and noise canceling technology to block out what you don’t want to hear.
If you want to hear external sounds, just switch to a different mode, and you can do that too. If you truly want to make your gift more personal, you can customize the case with an emoji, numbers, symbol or name for no additional charge. Whether he likes to listen to music when he works out or needs a cool pair of earbuds for his Zoom meetings, the AirPods Pro will make him look like a pro, even if he’s not one.
If you’re looking for a great gift that won’t break the bank, this Trophy Husband Tee is an excellent option.
With super soft in premium cotton fabric, this fun tee features a lightweight feel plus a comfortable fit with short sleeves so he can wear it all year round. The fun graphic print is pretty much a guarantee that it will become one of his favorite tees!
With the exception of our vegan friends, we don’t know any guy (or any girl, for that matter) who doesn’t love bacon! And while you may be trying to encourage him to eat heart-healthy meals, we think Valentine’s Day is the absolute best time to indulge in something delicious.
The Bacon Lover Sampler includes five tasty items: two small-batch bacon packages and one pack of bite-size bacon pieces. But it also comes with ground bacon and bacon steaks. Yes, bacon steaks that measure a half-inch thick.
Does your man fancy himself a master chef or hold the title of the best cook in the house? If he’s into the culinary scene, he surely knows the Made In brand. The Made In 8-inch chef’s knife is an excellent V-day gift for the guy who loves to cook.
It’s fully-forged and nitrogen-treated, hammered from one single rod of premium metal, and finished with a comfortable handle. You can even personalize the blade or the handle with their name for a few extra bucks.
Whether he puts in long work days of physical labor or does intense daily workouts at the gym, the Theragun Wave Duo massager is the perfect way to relieve muscle aches and pains.
The Theragan Wave Duo has an ergonomic roller shape that contours to the neck, spine, and back. It vibrates as it rolls and has five different settings to help relieve sore muscles and reduce uncomfortable tension.
What makes this device better than other personal massagers is that it’s super lightweight and portable, so you can take it with you just about anywhere you go.
Of all the gift ideas to make this list, this is the perfect gift for any man who doesn’t have a skincare routine or needs to level up the one he’s got.
Blu Atlas makes an entire range of men’s skincare products, so you can pick up one or two essentials or DIY your own gift box by loading him up with all sorts of skincare goodies.
If you choose one product, make it the Volcanic Ash Face Cleanser. If you want to make it a complete gift set, we recommend adding the Moisturizing Cream for intense hydration and the Restorative Eye Stick to help him get rid of unwanted dark circles and puffy eyes.
Okay, so a beanie hat might not be the most romantic gift of all time, but this one is from Thom Browne! And that makes it one of our favorite Valentine’s Day gifts of the season.
The Thom Browne 4-Bar Stripe Cashmere Rib Beanie hat is super luxe in ultra-soft cashmere yarn. It’s detailed with Browne’s signature four bar stripes at the cuff and accented with a red, white, and blue stripe label on the back. Whether he’s coming or going, he’ll be the most fashionable guy on the street!
It’s a bit pricey, with a nearly $300 price tag, but it’s timeless. He can wear it this year, next year, and every year thereafter!
The Tom Ford name is synonymous with luxury, so even if your guy isn’t super into fashion, he’s sure to love how these boxer briefs look and feel. The Tom Ford Cotton Jersey Boxer Briefs come in a pack of two and have a functional fly and a classic logo waistband.
They’re shape-retaining, so they won’t get outstretched, and they’re super soft in stretch cotton jersey, so they’re ultra-comfortable to wear.
These boxers are basic without being boring. He can wear them under a suit the next time you get dressed up for date night, or he can rock them beneath his most comfy sweatpants when you’re chilling on the couch watching Netflix.
Some guys love working out at the gym, but if your man prefers to get his workout in at home, check out the Bowflex SelectTech 840 Kettlebell.
This kettlebell is ideal if he has a small apartment or a tiny exercise room because it takes the place of six kettlebells. He can adjust the weight from 8 pounds up to 40 pounds and enjoy all sorts of intensity levels, depending on how hard of a workout he wants.
Non-alcoholic spirits are trending in a big way, and Spiritless Kentucky 74 is one of the reasons why. This non-alcoholic bourbon is beyond delicious, and it earned the prestigious title of Best Non-Alcoholic Spirit at the 2021 L.A. Spirits Awards.
If your guy has decided to turn dry January into an entire year or lifetime of sobriety, Spiritless Kentucky 74 is the way to do it without feeling even a little bit deprived.
Is your guy always willing to try a new type of coffee? If so, an Atlas Coffee Subscription is the perfect Valentine’s gift for him! Featuring single-origin coffees from different regions of the world, the Atlas Coffee Club ships whole beans or fresh grounds to his door each month.
Every subscription box includes the tasting profiles of that month’s batch, brewing instructions, and a postcard from the region that shows how the coffee was grown. For caffeine and coffee fans, this is the gift that keeps on giving.
If you love the idea of buying something totally personalized and unique for your boyfriend or husband this Valentine’s Day, but the options on Etsy are a little pricier than you might like, consider this personalized acrylic song plaque available on Amazon for a steal of a price.
It features the song of your choice and a photo of your choice and then a scannable code so you both can listen to your special song whenever the mood strikes. Plus, this cool plaque doubles as a lamp.
For the man who always appreciates a nice drink, you can’t go wrong with a gift subscription from Flaviar. The various gift subscription options range from a one-year subscription that comes with two products of your recipient’s choice, to a two-year subscription that includes 16 products of your recipient’s choice. Whatever option you choose, they’ll love trying and tasting new spirits with every delivery.
Looking for some new date ideas for Valentine’s Day or otherwise? Then this might be the perfect Valentine’s Day gift to benefit both of you.
This set of 100 Couple Bucket List cards spread out across three categories will encourage you to try new things, step outside your comfort zones and have fun bonding together over brand-new experiences and interesting conversation starters.
Skip the box of chocolates. If that’s something you know your man won’t quite care for, you can give him something better — a jerky heart from Man Crates. This fun and funny gift from Man Crates swaps out your typical, red heart-shaped box of truffles for a heart-shaped box of jerky. There are 10 different beef jerky flavors to sample in each box, from root beer habanero to honey bourbon.
For the guy who loves going to live events and is always dragging you to this or that game, concert or show, get him this budget-friendly ticket stub diary so he can remember all of his favorite occasions (especially the ones he spent with you!). It’s like a much more manly version of a scrapbook.
Want to kick this gift up a notch or two? As a surprise, tuck some tickets for a fun upcoming event inside.
If your Valentine’s Day plans include more time spent unclothed than clothed, make sure your man has the right loungewear to enjoy the rest of the day in comfortable style, like with this Brooklinen waffle robe. Better yet, get one for the both of you, because nothing says romance like matching bathrobes.
If you’re constantly struggling to come up with date night ideas and don’t just want the ideas but the actual stuff to make those ideas a reality, you might want to consider signing up for this subscription.
Available from Cratejoy, each monthly date night box comes with four to five date night activities, challenges or games, with everything needed, so you’re feasibly covered for an entire month. Subscriptions start at $20 per month and each box is themed. Past boxes have included activities such as road trip games, mysteries to solve, carnival games and hygge-inspired activities.
29. Oura Ring Gen 3
Upgrade your husband’s wedding band with this sleek ring that’s as tech-savvy as it is stylish. A wearable outfitted with research-grade sensors, the Oura Ring Gen 3 tracks heart rate data and provides valuable information regarding sleep, activity, temperature, stress, recovery and more. It’s an easy way to help your husband start taking his health seriously this year, but without a bulky fitness tracker or Apple Watch.
Is your guy one of those who, every time he’s ready to pay for something, he pulls out a tattered, barely-hanging-in-there wallet that’s on its last leg? Give him a stylish, splurge-worthy, new, luxe leather wallet this Valentine’s, with this designer option available at Nordstrom.
Sure, this great gift idea might be a little more practical than a romantic gift, but what man hasn’t forgotten until the very last minute that he’s running out of deodorant? Make sure your guy is always prepared with a Helmm deodorant subscription that will keep him feeling and smelling clean, whether he needs deliveries every six, seven or eight weeks.
In addition to smelling great, Helmm deodorant is also super-sustainable. The product is refillable, reducing waste. Plus, for every refill pod you buy, the brand removes two pods’ worth of plastic from the ocean.
For the guy who fancies himself an outdoorsman but either really isn’t or just can’t be due to where he lives, you might consider giving him a taste of the great outdoors via the Solo Stove Bonfire. This portable, high-quality fire pit is super compact but doesn’t require any mess, and it’s totally smoke-free. Use it on the back deck or porch, beach, park, or wherever.
If the Solo Stove is too large for your man’s needs, but he still craves some fire action, get him this tabletop indoor-outdoor fire pit. This tabletop fire pit is on the smaller side at just five inches in diameter and over three inches in height, but it burns for nearly an hour with a six to 12-inch flame, producing warmth that spreads as far as 250 square feet.
Whether your husband or boyfriend is always losing his socks, or if he’s just a fan of wearing totally colorful, eye-catching, fun socks to the office, this subscription will be a good fit. Every month, Sock Fancy will send him a surprise pair of crew socks, and every pair is different! He could be getting Sock Fancy socks for years and never even seeing a repeat design.
If your guy is always mentioning the good ol’ days of vintage video games, give him a taste of the past without dropping the cash on a super-expensive, full-size arcade console. This Atari laptop console pairs with your existing television so he can play fun one and two-player games such as Asteroids, Asteroids Deluxe, Missile Command, Lunar Lander and more.
For the foodie couple that loves to cook together but who’s also running out of fun ideas to keep the date-night-in spark alive, go with this Date Night Cookbook that includes not only couples-geared recipes but also activities to make your nights even more fun.
Each recipe is specifically designed to be completed with two cooks in the kitchen, and each recipe is part of a complete menu. Menus are accompanied by related activities. All the planning is already done for you, all you need to do is pick up the groceries and settle in for a fun night at home.
Why buy a box of chocolates when you can make them? Better yet, why give your guy a box of chocolates when you can make them together as a fun Valentine’s Day activity? This truffle-making kit contains everything you need to make a big batch of three dozen truffles, minus the cream.
How to Buy the Perfect V-Day Present for a Guy
Did some of the above Valentine’s Day gift ideas catch your eye, but you’re still not 100% sold on any single gift? Keep these tips in mind as you shop for your best chances at buying the absolute perfect gift for your husband, boyfriend or fiance this Valentine’s Day.
Go Beyond The Classics
While many men enjoy receiving flowers and chocolates just as much as women, if your man isn’t into big romantic gestures, you might find more success by steering clear of these classic Valentine’s Day gifts and, instead, buying something more unique to him.
Rather than just browsing the Valentine’s Day aisles at the grocery store, think about his likes, dislikes, interests, hobbies and needs. What can you surprise him with that he’ll both want and want to use?
Pair Your Gift With An Activity
Most couples extend their Valentine’s celebrations beyond a simple gift exchange and typically have an activity or date planned as well. Consider giving your recipient a gift they can use during your activity or date.
Maybe you give them that ticket stub scrapbook they can use after the event you’re attending that night. If you plan on doing dinner and drinks, consider giving them a nice bottle of whiskey for mixing up some cocktails. If you’re just doing a basic dinner date, you could go with a nice wallet, tie clip, cuff link or another accessory that you know he’ll love.
Make It Personal
A personalized, unique gift is a nice alternative to a classic Valentine’s Day gift that’s not just the same ol’ same ol’, but that’s still romantic. Commemorate a favorite moment in your lives with a personalized print, plaque or piece of home decor (or even a DIY project!).
Make It Fit
Overall, though, ensure your gift fits your recipient’s personality and expectations. If this isn’t your first Valentine’s Day together, you likely already know what kind of gesture they’re expecting and what they’ll be doing in return.
If your guy is fun and active, choose a gift that matches that fun personality. If he’s more utilitarian and sensible, consider a gift along those lines. If you’ve always kept Valentine’s Day casual and low-key in the past, this might not be the time to go over-the-top and extra-expensive.
When in doubt, if you’ve been together a long time, just talk to your partner about what they expect for Valentine’s Day, what they’d like to do and what kind of budget they’d like to set aside for the festivities.
Surprise Your Man with the Perfect Gift This Valentine’s Day
However you and your sweetheart plan to spend Valentine’s Day this year, make sure things get off on the right foot with the perfect present. Whether your guy is a tech fanatic, manly-man, gym rat or audiophile, you’re sure to find a gift that will leave him speechless (in a good way!) among our top 37 recommended options above.
