Ladies, let’s be honest, V Day is about you, and we are just there. But we all know that you have a hard time when searching for Valentine’s Day gifts for him. Fortunately, you seem to like to get that guy in your life something to show your love for him. We appreciate that. Sexy clothing is always something that is appreciated, but that will be the only mention of it in this article. You need to feel sexy in your outfits and having some strange man who you have never met tell you what sexy is…well, odd. With that in mind, I know that it is hard to find us gifts at times, and this list will help you narrow down your choices.
What to get your boyfriend for Valentine's Day?
Okay, will he love these? No, but it will get a good laugh, and you may be able to make him wear it once or twice. Plus, you get to proclaim your love on your chest with your matching shirt.
These are cool, and I think a sweet thing for a guy to do for a girl, or for a girl to do for a guy. You can either buy some that are already made or make them on your own. Indeed, a DIY gift idea that you should consider.
Here is another game that you can bring into the bedroom. Everyone loves these four in a row games, and this one has a little bit of a twist. You may want to make sure the competition doesn’t take over the real purpose of the game.
This gift basket is made for men and has some things that most guys would enjoy. Of course, this is another DIY gift that you could make on your own. No one knows your guy more than you. Pick a few gifts and create your basket.
I love these multi-tools and have a couple of them strung throughout the house. If your guy doesn’t have one, he needs it. If he does have one, he still needs it. It may not scream Valentines day, but it will get used.
I am trying not to make a lot of these gifts sexual in nature, but it would appear that I am doing a poor job at that so far. These are fun and can be entertaining. Just be prepared for what they are saying.
Here is something that is a little different speed. It is a good tool to figure out exactly where you and your partner are and want to be in life. Maybe put in places you want to go, the amount of money you would have to save a year, or whatever you feel is a good addition.
I like pens. Probably more than the average person should. To me, an engraved pen like this one would be a pretty good idea as a gift. I may not use it everyday, but I would certainly use it at some time.
This is a little different than the one that I mentioned earlier. This gift basket has more name brand things and more “manly” food items that almost every guy I know enjoys. If you don’t want to make one yourself and the others, seem a little more “girly” than you think he would like, go for this one.
Look, it is the novelty for sure, but I would get a good laugh unboxing these. It could be that juvenile sense of humor that I have been cursed with, but I am sure he would appreciate it as well.
Another novelty gift here, but most guys would appreciate the humor in these. It isn’t like anyone, but you and he will see them… Unless, he walks around in his underwear outside a lot. No judgment here.
Because of the figure and shape, it may also be a great white elephant gift.
Guys are notorious for not being super organized. Cut down the clutter on his desk with this stylish docking station. I added one to my cart. My desk is a mess. Maybe adding more to it will help.
I don’t know why but I have been wanting one of these recently. There is something about a tree being that small that I like. Plus, they are beautiful to look at and would be a good gift for that guy with a green thumb.
How well do you know your man? How well does he know you? I bet it isn’t as well as either of you think. Games like these are pretty fun and would be a good way to spend an hour or two. Just make sure it doesn’t cause a fight.
You love to sleep, and he has insomnia? Maybe that is just my wife and me. Either way, I am sure one of you needs a reading light for the night that isn’t so imposing. Check this one out and I bet you can get a little more sleep.
This one may be less for him and more for you. My wife loves messing with my face when a pimple is coming up. I think it is repulsive and don’t get it, but apparently it is a semi-common thing. If you are one of those people, you may want this. Meanwhile, I am going to make sure this is never ordered.
I have one of these that Destiny got me about a year after we started dating. I play guitar, and she essentially started dating me because my guitar was pretty. Anyway, if he plays and you want to get something different for him, this may be the way to go.
This will probably be the last gift basket, but I keep finding ones that I want. This one has some pretty decent foods in them. My mind is instantly drawn to the meats and cheese. The food lover in your life will dig this.
Whiskey on the rocks takes the new meaning with this gift. I don’t know why, but whiskey seems to be the drink that more men like than women and the problem with ice are that it melts and screws with the taste. This gets the drink cold and doesn’t water it down.
How do you keep him thinking about you when he is out on that fishing trip? Here is a great way. Make him fish with something you gave him. This one even is engraved with a message. Will it catch a fish? Maybe. At least he will think about you before he decides to skip that reunion to stay on the lake.
Two things that guys like together? Yep. I’ll take it. Some simple tools and some great chocolate gifts for him to eat while you have him fixing the dishwasher or putting together that desk for the kids.
I seriously burnt myself bad with one of the plastic grill brushes the other day because the handle was way too short and I had to scrub pretty hard due to the worn down and rusted state of the thing. This one is sure to hold up for quite a while and can keep his hands out of the flames when scrubbing down those pesky grill grates.
Kind of novelty and useful. This gift is a good blend of the two and I would say he would like it. Practice balls are a nice thing to have for the golfer in the family. Going to a range is expensive, and buying real golf balls is even more costly. Let him perfect his swing in the backyard.
If your guy is active and gets his hard dirty all of the time, it may be time to trade that wedding ring for one of these silicone ones. They are more versatile, and you don’t run as large of a risk of injury when being active and having one of these. Believe it or not, gold or silver ring can get caught and cause some real problems in certain industries or activities.
This gift basket is pretty expensive but has some fun things for couples to take to the bedroom and spice things up a little on Valentine’s night. It looks like it is pretty loaded down with items and could last quite a while or could be one crazy night of fun.
I feel my manliest when I am out on the deck throwing giant slabs of meat on a grill, the flame flaring, If you man doesn’t have a good set, I would skip on the solo wire cleaning brush and get one of these sets.
If you are always getting on to your guy about the cuts and dirt on his hands this may be something that you would want to get him. Work gloves are severely uncomfortable and bulky. These take away both of those problems and keep his hands clean.
I know that beanies aren’t everyone’s style, but if they are this one has a twist, you can get your music blue toothed to it. This may be something that the hunter in your family could use or good for any guy who can’t use earbuds while working.
This is one of the coolest things that I have seen in a while. The bamboo watch face is nice looking and I think could go with a lot of styles. I don’t wear watches a lot, but if I did, I would certainly have one of these. Get him this unique watch and he won’t be late for that date later this week.
Whether he is a hunter, fisherman, works outdoors, or is just clumsy, a dry bag always comes in handy. I just had to use one last week and have often in the past. It is something that is handy to have around the house and for certain people could be a daily necessity. If you think he could use it, this is a good purchase for you.
Here is another gag gift for him to put in the bathroom in the man cave. The potty putter gives him the feeling of being on the green while he is…umm… you know. It will make him laugh if nothing else, and I am sure you will find him using it. No pun intended.
You know what a great Valentine’s Day gift would be? A place to go and relax for a few minutes in relative silence. This hammock chair will allow him a nice place to chill outside when he has a few minutes, and you get to use it too. It may not be being you closer as a couple, but it will get him out of your hair for a bit.
Personalized gifts are always something that is welcome and seem more heartfelt than others. An engraved wallet would be the same. I change wallets pretty often and find that most guys do as well, or they are in desperate need of a new one. Whichever he is, this is a good choice.
Bluetooth speakers are super popular, and it is likely that you have one in the house already. This one is a little more unique, though. It would be a great thing to have to sit on that desk beside the gaming computer, or those important papers that he hasn’t touched in weeks.
You ask him to read, and he just shows no interest? This one will catch his attention. The title says it all. It is filled with questions that a lot of people wonder but never ask for whatever reason. More than he could ever want to know about useless medical things are packed in.
Whether he is cooking or working on the car, protecting him from burns is a good thing. This gauge is a point and shoot device that registers the heat of whatever it is pointing at. Pot handles or hot engine parts are no longer a worry as long as he remembers to gauge it first.
Coloring is back with a vengeance, and it is taking over the world. Sadly, much of the coloring options out there are girly or childish, and some guys don’t want to do it. Well, this book hopes to fix that problem. Sit him down and spend an evening coloring. It’s nice.
We all want one, and this one is relatively affordable. It would be a proper use of money as long as you can trust him not to crash it into a tree, through a window, or in front of a car. Let’s be fair, it’s going to happen, but he will enjoy the time with it.
This one could be insulting, but I don’t know that I would take it that way. I am always looking for tips to do things better or even just figuring out how to do something. I would say a lot of others are like me.
This gift box is for that guy who takes pride in how he looks, likes product, and wants to try some brands that he otherwise may not. Beard oils, shampoos, and other things come in this box. It may be a little hipster for him, or it may be just right. You know him better than me.
I own a detailing company and have to tell you, a good shammy can go a long way. They are my most used tools when we are out on a job, and I even have a couple at home. Although, don’t buy this if you live in the area around my business. That just wouldn’t be fair.
If your guy has some guns or hunts this could be a cool gift for him. Everything needed to clean the guns is tucked inside a pretty cool looking bullet. It is easily able to be tucked away into a closet until it’s needed or it could be a unique decoration for the hunting shack.
This is a cool gift idea for your guy. Get a picture of you, your kids, or the whole family engraved onto this dog-tag. It would be a great gift for the military guy, ex-military guy, or any guy who wears a dog-tag necklace. Plus, it will remind him of you.
This would be well coupled with the whiskey stones from earlier. This stylish decanter and glass set would be great as a decoration or for entertaining those friends of his during the big game.
Terry Cloths are the definition of manly clothes. I know that sounds weird, but they are used by a lot of car people for their cleaning. Essentially, this is a man robe, unlike any others. Kind of fun.
They aren’t for every guy, but if you think he will wear it, this could be a cool gift for the both of you. Even if he doesn’t wear it, it could go around his rearview mirror or somewhere else that he would see if often. It looks pretty cool as well.
Let him live in hidden style. These silk underwear are comfortable, look great, and are sure to be a hit. I would say that one pair may not be enough, but I guess it is a start. There is a great scene in The League involving silk pants, but that is a reference that only a few would get.
Let’s go a little old school for that businessman in your life. You can never have enough ties in the closet. It is about time that he threw out that one with the mustard stain anyway, Get him one of these as a replacement. Seriously, it’s time.
Honestly, matching things are not my style at all. I hate matching. Something low key like these phone cases would be acceptable, though. It is something that is just different and just cute enough to appease both of you and not risk any feelings. Don’t expect him to throw away that life proof that he has on his phone, though. I mean he loves you, but that’s a handy phone case.
It may be one of my favorite time-wasting games to play, and it is surely a hit with most kids. This nice homemade tic-tac-toe board would be a great thing to have as a decoration around the house, in his office, or in the man cave. Hopefully, he doesn’t get as competitive with this game as I do.
Take the famous improv game to the dark side this Valentine’s Day and leave each other speechless. This book includes 21 stories that were inspired by the Karma Sutra and would be a fun way to spend an hour or two. You just may learn something about each other when playing the game too.
Look, after a few years of marriage, sometimes it is hard to find things to talk about. It happens. This gift aims to bring some casual conversation back to the relationship. Discuss future vacation plans, where you see yourselves on the 50th anniversary, and read some great quotes about love and marriage by people from all walks of life.
VR is the future of the tech industry and me for one, cannot wait for it to take over. It is taking everything in me not to start buying every different brand. This one is more affordable than many of the others and works with most smartphones. Games, videos, and more are all found online that are compatible with one of these.
It’s a game we all played in high school or maybe college, but it has been left behind, and that is a real shame. Bring it back and relive the fun of the high school game with a more…adult twist. I say that assuming as innocent high school children that game never got out of hand. (It’s okay. It’ll be our secret)
He talks a big game when it comes to eating spicy foods, but does he have the guts to back it up? Find out. Make some wings and give him a challenge. Nothing is better on Valentine’s Day than burning the taste buds off of your lover’s tongue. Just watch what martial activities go on after. That could hurt.
Knives are cool. That is all I have to say on the matter, but word limits require that I continue typing. It is a pretty generic gift, and doesn’t belong on this list, but men can be hard to shop for. I get that. If you want to go the safe route, this may be a good bet.
Change it up in the bedroom and explore all 224 pages of this book. It will keep you busy for quite a while if you try to do it all night. So unless you’re Sting and into tantric stuff, you may want to take a few weeks and try them out. This should be something that both of you enjoy so take your time and have fun you dirty, dirty kids.
Here is something different that you probably haven’t thought of. A projector is a unique and cool gift for a lot of guys. Make that TV screen as big as you want. It may not have that crisp 1080p or 4K resolution that your 24 inch Magnavox has, but hey, it’s something fun and different.
Let’s say these sexy games and gifts aren’t for you. Maybe you like a little less sex and a bit more danger. Here it is. This game is a lot like that pie in the face game, but instead of whipped cream, it is an electric shock. Romantic right?
T-Shirts are a good buy for almost everyone. The only way to make it an even better buy is to add on something geeky and funny. This shirt does just that. I mean, who in 2016 has a shirt with a floppy disk on it? Your significant other, that’s who. Don’t leave his shirt drawer without a floppy disk. I hear they get vengeful and purposely wrinkle all of his shirts unless there is one with a floppy disk on it. Most importantly, it’s ideal if you’re looking for inexpensive Valentine gifts for him.
This is for the coffee lover in your life. If you have a Keurig and want to allow him to find a brand that he enjoys, this is a good gift. I would find his favorite and then never buy it. I might be a terrible person, though. Maybe you shouldn’t take my relationship advice.
There was a point in every guy’s life where he imagined that he was Wolverine ripping through the carcass of some Marvel universe buddy while spouting cheesy punchlines and wearing yellow spandex. Make part of that dream a reality the next time he makes BBQ with one of these meat shredders. It isn’t quite adamantium, but close enough.
A lot of guys play guitar. Not many will have picks that are this cool. The assorted picks come in a handy tin to keep him from losing them all over the house (yeah right, he still will), and are printed with some pretty cool designs. Pick Geek makes good quality stuff, and I have used them almost exclusively for the past year or so. He will like them.
Does he cook naked? Probably. Does he do it when you are around? Maybe. Either way, protect his body from those dreadful splashes of oil, boiling water, or whatever concoction he is making this evening and let him still give the appearance of a naked man. Only, this naked man has an elephant head over his crotch. Seems like a kind of cool gift to me. I may trade in my Batman apron for this one.
He a fitness guy? Well, then he is better than me. This could be a great way to torture him, though. Imagine getting the worst possible outcome and being forced to do it because the dice said so. I mean, no ones goes against the dice. That is bad luck or something. I, on the other hand, may risk some bad luck to avoid doing squats for a half hour.
Back to coffee. Maybe it is the exhaustion talking, but I want some right now. Regardless, French pressed coffee has been a big thing in a lot of coffee shops and fans of the drink lately. It is much better than other brews to me and well worth learning a new method. That old Bunn that has been used every morning since the wedding needs a break. Give this a try.
I may have given it away that I was a Batman fan by talking about my apron. Let me again display my geeky side and say this is the coolest thing that I have ever seen, and I want one in every room of my house. I mean, it just looks so awesome, and even you ladies who hate comic characters have to admit to the awesomeness that is this clock. Ugh, I may be gushing a little much. I should not have chugged that coffee.)
I know, you’re thinking, “Another knife?” Well, this one has an added benefit. It includes a straight razor. You may not have ever had a reason to get a shave with a straight razor. Let me just tell you; it is one of the best things that could ever happen to your guy’s face. I don’t know why, but they are just the greatest thing ever. Not many barbers do it anymore, and that makes me sad. Just PLEASE, make sure he is careful, they are sharp.
Drinks are expensive. Eight bucks for a Jameson on the rocks?! No thanks, I’ll just step out and chug my flask, then come back in and just have one or two of your overly expensive drinks. It is an excellent way to save money when going out, going to the big game or just trying to get through that long children’s soccer game. (Note: Author only support moderate flask usage during little league soccer. Keep it civil.)
This is a cool idea and the people who are giving this negative reviews just don’t get it. This box comes filled with, well, you don’t have a clue. It could be something awesome or something completely lame. It could be more than one thing. Who knows. This is an exciting cool gift for both of you. I mean, you could have bought him a complete waste of a gift, but it was fun opening it. Like Christmas for a child.
One more book for you on this list. This one is the actual “what if” answer book. This book is written by a hugely popular site online for people who like useless knowledge. You have never seen a more pointless use of math and science to get answers to the most absurd questions ever asked. It has some chuckles, and he just may learn a thing or two to share at the next company picnic.
Bond is the epitome of manhood. The movies have everything that any guy could want. Girls, gadgets, cars, guns, and great villains. Roger Moore isn’t the best Bond in history, but this would still be a kind of cool gift for fans of the series.
Give him this and have him treat you to a nice picnic. There are few things as fun as a day away from everyone else, a snack by the river, and a good hike. Make it happen with this handy backpack that is all ready to go with everything you would need besides the food itself. He will have no excuse not to take you.
Warm beer is gross. In case you couldn’t tell from my earlier posts, beer isn’t my favorite drink, but I know that warm beer is not worth drinking. These chilling sticks for beer are perfect for a day outside by the fire, or just chilling on a sunny day.
Items like this have been taking off in some circles and if you guy is into fitness he may know something about them. Mostly, they stimulate the muscles and help get the most out of your training regiments. Prices can vary on this site pending on the bells and whistles that you want to get for him. It is a little more expensive than the other gifts on the list, but way higher tech than any of them either.
These tools are beyond handy for someone who works on cars, and I don’t think that you can ever have enough. At least, that is what I hear. I don’t have a clue how to work on a car at all. Which is weird considering my line of work. I guess that is the plan for my summer. Learn to work on cars and have a need for tools like this.
It is a goal of mine to get out and hike more in the coming months. I enjoy it, and I think more people should try to get out in nature and hike on the weekends. One of these backpacks comes in handy. They are a little cumbersome and bulky, but the amount that can be fit into them is phenomenal.
I love a great steak, and Omaha Steaks are hard to beat. They have quite a few packages to fit any budget and taste. I would not go cheap here, though. Indulge yourself on a great piece of meat for Valentines day. Follow it up with a homemade dessert and then you have a good night.
If you travel and go to events a lot, this would be a fun gift for you as a couple. Keepsakes of memories like this are always great to look back on and share with family years later. Heck, I just recently looked through my stepmom’s collection of Grateful Dead ticket stubs and was beyond impressed with the number of times she saw them.
Put your names on this completely personalized decoration along with your city’s skyline. This is sure to be something that none of your friends have, and they will all be envious of. I may actually get Destiny one for our Anniversary wth Savannah’s skyline on it. I am trying desperately hard to get her to move there.
Making my own drinks like this is something that I would like to get into, and I think a lot of guys may share my curiosity. This kit comes with everything needed to make your own Gin including the subtle flavor profiles that are required. After a test run, make you own flavors and create your favorite.
DIY VALENTINE’S GIFTS FOR HIM
If you want the Valentine’s Day to be a memorable moment for both of you guys, then you need to think about some thoughtful gifts for him. In this case, nothing can be better than handmade gifts. Get you hands dirty, and make one these unique gifts for your loved one.
We are going into some DIY gifts for the next few posts. Cookies and sweets are great for any occasion, and these look amazing to me. I would say give them a try. Plus, the chocolate hearts go great with Valentines day. Have him make dinner and you make dessert. It is a team effort.
These marquee letters may not necessarily be for him, but you can make them together and decorate the house. Time together is what Valentine’s Day is about after all. I have been asked to make these with my wife recently, and now that I am writing about it, she is sure not to let me put it off any longer.
I don’t have enough cabinet space for the amount of mugs that I have. Is this a common problem that people deal with? Who knew. Anyway, if you can make room for one more, this gift would be a good one to fit in there. Anything that has time and love put into it will get used more than the others.
Tie Clips are an underrated piece of clothing. I have ruined a few ties in my time due to them swinging around. It is just something a lot of people never think about. Well, don’t let your SO ruin anymore. Keep that tie clipped and looked sharp with this homemade tie clip.
Do you really want to impress him? Knit him a completely personalized heart. I have a few keepsakes like these from our dating years. They are fun to pull out every now and then and look at. Plus, this one can serve as a coaster on the coffee table, and everyone can admire your handy work.
Another DIY gift for this year is the candy filled tackle box. Worms, Swedish Fish, and other candies can be placed in those clear tackle boxes. I should pass along a recommendation, though. Don’t try to fish with gummy worms. They don’t quite have the same effect as the real thing.
This is a great small gift if you are making dinner for Valentine’s Day. The XOXO covered plate can be used more than once, but are worth breaking out in the special season of love. I have terrible handwriting, so I am gonna pass on trying to make these. My x’s end up looking like those fish on the back of people’s cars.
Let’s be honest, sometimes you just want to chill at home, cuddle and eat popcorn. This is a good option for you. I would recommend finding a movie that you both love or you could even get a magnificent sappy love movie if he is into that sort of thing. I may be a rare male who actually enjoys them. Just not Titanic, I don’t want to cry again.
Some pretty good decor ideas are listed on this site. I tried to make a heart shaped pizza last Valentine’s Day. That was a massive disaster, but I tried. I think you will likely have better luck than me. Seriously, it looked like a square when it was done. I don’t even know how that happened.
Take your craftiness into the bedroom and I don’t mean in the way that you are thinking. These homemade pillows would be a great decoration for the month of February and the weeks leading up to the holiday. Well, I would even have them up for the rest of the year if I put time into them, but that is your choice I suppose. These pillows can also be perfect personalized Valentine’s gifts for him if you put your names or initials on them.
If you have a large family, or even if you don’t, this idea may be something that you would want to make. It would be fun to do together and could hang on the wall as something to brag about to your visitors. Working together can be fun.
If you like the previous idea of games, but don’t want to get any of those, this may be more for you. It’s Jenga but with a special V-Day twist. I think you will enjoy this game much more than the original.
This printable box for doughnuts would be a fun gift to have delivered to his office. If it is filled with homemade doughnuts, that is just a bigger bonus. A little less DIY, but still a pretty fun idea. You could even write a note on the inside of it to make it more special for him.
Looking for some creative Valentine gifts for him? This printable comedy Valentine is not one that I would deliver to the office, but it would be fun to leave around the house for him to find. Attach his favorite candy and this could just be a great start to the holiday.
This is a pretty fun little DIY thing to have on a shelf for the holiday. Just print out the PDF on the site, make a few small cuts and woa-la, you have a cool little decoration to have around the house.
You could hang one of the previous printable DIY things to the refrigerator with this super cool chocolate heart magnet. Just please, if you have a dog make sure it is out of reach. Some, if not all dogs, cannot eat chocolate for risk to their health.
This is another decoration that you would be able to make and leave up year round. This piece of thumbtack art would go well with about any decoration. You could easily set up a shelf in your house and change the surrounding items to match the season.
