Shopping for a woman on Valentine’s Day is relatively simple. Give us a whopping box of chocolates (an occasional gift of jewelry) and some roses, and we’ll be on our jolly way.
But guys? They’re another story. Finding the perfect present to give your man can be tough. Sure, wallets and watches are nice, but we wanted to go beyond the list of normal go-to V Day gifts, and conjure up something he'll really love.
We came up with eight options that'll earn you some major brownie points. Check ‘em out:
Déjàmor membership, $29.19+: Think of it as something like the Beer of the Month club, but a whole lot sexier. You can sign up for a three, six, or 12-month subscription, and have discreet packages sent to you in the mail containing goodies you and your partner can enjoy.
Whiskey Stones, $19.99: Ice cubes have never been manlier. If your guy likes to kick back with a drink at the end of the day, have him drop these babies into his glass. They're made of U.S. mined soapstones that will keep his favorite cocktails cold, without diluting them with water.
Poker Set, $34.49: Help him do guys’ night right by gifting him a fully-stocked poker kit. Just make sure his buddies know the party is BYOB.
Burberry Cologne, $57 - $73: There is nothing hotter on your guy’s bod than an alluring cologne. One of our all-time faves is Burberry Brit. The scent is woody, masculine and smells like pure confidence. He’ll like it for its incredible musk, and for the effect it has on you … trust us.
iHome Mini Speakers, $49.99: If your sweetie is an avid music lover, he’ll love these portable speakers equipped with a vacuum bass design that allows for an incredible sound experience. The two are small and compact, making it easy for your guy to take these with him wherever he goes.
Kiehl’s Men’s Refueling Kit, $42: Some men just don’t take it upon themselves to buy quality skincare products. If this sounds familiar, help your guy get hooked on a fantastic regimen with this gift set from Kiehl’s. It comes with the “Ultimate Man” Body Scrub Soap, the Facial Fuel Energizing Moisture Treatment, Facial Fuel Energizing Face Wash, and Facial Fuel Sky Flyin’ Foaming Multi-Gel and will leave his skin feeling softer than a baby’s you know what.
Surplus Jacket from Gap, $98: With spring approaching, he’s going to need a style savvy, lightweight outerwear option to keep him looking slick. We love this jacket from Gap! It’s simple and effortlessly trendy — two things he doesn’t even know he loves.
Lingerie: When in doubt, slip into something skimpy and seductive. It’ll be mutually satisfying for both of you. Want to make him go really crazy? Give him a glimpse of the sexy piece at the dinner table. He’ll call for the check then and there.
