Looking for the perfect Valentines Day gift for him? Here are 37 gifts ideas you just can't go wrong with.
The people who say guys are easy and care-free have never had to buy gifts for them. Oh my gosh, when I tell you I have spent hours trying to find my boyfriend a gift, I’m not kidding. I don’t care how much time you spend with the guy, it’s never easy to buy them a gift! Actually, I know if I showed up with a Ferrari he would definitely be happy, but this year that’s out of that budget (ha!).
As I said, I’ve spent many, many hours researching gifts for guys that they will actually use because I am sincerely tired of looking at gift guides for guys to find that none of the gifts they will actually like (I’m guessing you’ve been there too). Obviously every guy is different, but I promise this list is a solid, tried-and-true guy approved gift list that you can count on to help you.
I have been referring back to this when I need gift ideas for guys and it has been incredibly helpful and I hope that you will be able to find something in here perfect for whoever you’re buying for! Now, let’s get to the list.
P.S. Do not be alarmed when you see a few inappropriate gifts. They are funny gifts specifically for boyfriends, husbands, etc. Please do not think I am suggesting you get a “Positions of the Day” book for your dad.... Because I’m not, lol.
This post is all about Valentines Day gifts for him.

VALENTINES DAY GIFTS FOR HIM UNDER $25:
1. Shoe Dog by Phil Knight
So many guys I know have read this book (I’m talking about guys who don’t even like reading as well). Apparently, it’s incredible. Honestly, for how much I've heard about it, I want to read it myself!
2. Knit Hat
If he can rock a beanie or is looking to spice up his style, I love this neutral hat. Black hats look great with anything and this one’s from H&M but looks designer.
3. Nike Everyday Max Cushioned Socks
Nike socks, a classic in any guy's wardrobe. You can never have enough socks. I know this gift sounds lame but I don’t know any guy who would be upset getting these as a gift.
4. The Essential Cookbook for Men - by Manuel Villacorta
Omg, I think it’s such a great idea to get a guy a cookbook. If he would never touch a cookbook, then obviously ignore this suggestion, but I know a few guys out there who are incredible chefs and would love this gift. Who doesn’t love a man who can cook?
5. Ind. Fragrance
Everyone deserves to smell good - so why not treat him to a new cologne?
6. The Mini Bar: 100 Essential Cocktail Recipes
For the guys over 21, I think these eight mini bar cocktail recipe books are a great, unique gift. They also have artsy graphics inside which is an added bonus.
7. "May Contain Alcohol" Mug
A funny yet still appropriate gift that will make any guy feel comfortable holding a mug!! You could also put some chocolates inside or mini alcohol bottles to add to the gift!
8. Solve These F*cking Puzzles - by Val Garrity
I mean you could look at this and think it’s lame, but I honestly think so many people would find this gift amazing (I honestly want to try out a few of the puzzles myself).
9. Metal Money Clips
If you know a guy who is using a hair tie to hold his money and cards together, please get him this as a gift.
10. Positions of the Day Playbook (Funny Gift for your Boyfriend)
AGAIN, I would like to restate that this gift is for significant others! I am not telling you to buy this gift for your dad unless you are trying to be really funny - that would be hilarious. I think this is such an out-of-the-box gift any guy would have to love it. **Please use the book at your own discretion.**
11. Gatorade Gx 30 oz. Bottle
A water bottle is a water bottle and everyone should have one! I think this one is perfect because it’s not too flashy and this is the one that all the “athletes” use, so I guess he might think it’s “cool” haha.
VALENTINES DAY GIFTS FOR HIM UNDER $50:
12. Leather Charger Roll Up
I love how sophisticated this leather charger roll-up is and I think it would be perfect for any guy who travels a lot for work (or college)!
15. iPhone Case
I’m just making an assumption but he probably already needs a new phone case 😉
16. Tile Starter Pack
Okay, even I need this. If he loses things all the time, the Tile was made for him. They’re Bluetooth connected trackers that you can put in your wallet or on your keys. You get the app and it tells you exactly where it is and can also make a sound so you can easily find it.
18. Nike Everyday Cotton Stretch Boxer Brief 3-Pack
Underwear. You can never have enough pairs of underwear and these boxers are highly rated.
19. Fire TV Stick
The fire-stick TV is amazing, I have one myself and it allows you to download all your favorite streaming networks; Netflix, Hulu, HBO, etc. I think this is such an amazing gift for anyone who has a TV.
20. Clue: The Office Board Game
For The Office lovers!!! This is such a good idea and I honestly don’t know any guy who doesn’t like The Office.
21. JBL Flip Essential
If the Echo Dot didn’t really seem like his thing, I think this JBL Flip would be perfect. I have a JBL and the sound quality is amazing - the thing can get loud, like really loud.
22. Men's Salty Dog Etip Gloves
These are my favorite gloves I have ever seen and I want to buy these for my boyfriend right now.
23. Drunk Stoned or Stupid [A Party Game]
A great gift for any guy who’s social and likes a hilarious party game!
24. Mercer Leather Belt
Belts are perfect for any formal (or non-formal occasion) and that type of accessory that guys don’t necessarily want to go out of their way to buy for themselves. Which is why I think it’s the perfect gift! He’ll love you for it, one because it’s a gift and two, because he didn’t have to go out and buy it for himself.
25. Nike Sportswear NSW Long-Sleeve T-Shirt
This Nike long-sleeve t-shirt will become a staple in his wardrobe and you’ll be happy for it. Honestly, buy it for him and then steal it back haha. This would be a great oversized shirt for a casual athleisure outfit.
VALENTINES DAY GIFTS FOR HIM OVER $50:
26. Lululemon Best-Selling Joggers
Anything in the men’s Lululemon collection is amazing. Just scroll through all the options. These joggers are my fave, but you really can’t go wrong with anything from Lululemon. It's all insanely comfortable!
27. The Ultimate Beard Trimming Kit
Does he have a beard? If the answer is yes, then he’ll definitely like this gift (unless he’s super picky about his “beard routine” lol).
28. Tushy Bidet
Okay if you haven’t heard of a bidet, look it up (I feel uncomfortable trying to explain it haha) but I know so many guys who rave about these (it’s apparently a guy thing). But, mark my words, if you get him this, he’ll love it.
29. Ember Travel Mug
The Ember Travel Mug is a genius invention, it will keep whatever drink you have the perfect temperature. If coffee hits your taste buds perfectly at a temperature of 155° F, tell the mug and watch it do its magic.
30. Men's Muhammad Ali Performance GOAT Float Sting Gift Box
Let’s make socks cool. The packaging of this is amazing and Mohammad Ali is a true GOAT so almost any guy who’s in-the-know when it comes to sports will like this!
31. Metal Vent Tech Short Sleeve 2.0
Another Lululemon option because their clothing is truly the best. All of their clothing is light, breathable, and really well made.
32. uKeg GO
The uKeg is extremely complex so I thought I would just add a quote from the website because I’ll definitely botch the explanation: “This thing is their latest iteration on the classic uKeg, packing the same 64 oz capacity and CO2-powered, suds-saving technology, but optimized for quenching thirsts on the go. Double-wall vacuum insulation keeps beer cold, while the patented pressure system automatically maintains freshness and optimal carbonation for weeks. “
33. Water-Repellent Puffer Jacket
Love this puffer from H&M, stylish while not being too “out there” if you know what I mean.
34. Bleu de Toilette
The Bleu de Toilette cologne by Chanel is raved about. Chanel says it’s a “woody, aromatic fragrance for the man who defies convention; a provocative blend of citrus and woods that liberates the senses. Fresh, clean, and profoundly sensual.”
35. Massage Gun
If you have never tried a massage gun, get ready for your mind to be blown. These things are amazing and feel sooo good. If he’s into working out, this is the perfect after workout device that will help him with muscle recovery. Love this massage gun so much!
37. Nike Air Max 270
My favorite Nike shoes for guys right now. The white shoe with the dark Nike logo is slick and sophisticated while still being fashion-forward. I’m into it!!
