Valentine’s Day!

Tired of the old cliche new wallet and new tie gift that you get him every year?

Let’s be honest with ourselves here – Men are hard to shop for.

Like, seriously, what the heck do they really want for gifts?

I did a ton of recon with this post. I mean, I really dug deep into the research, trying to figure out what men really want for gifts.

And by “a ton of recon” and “really dug deep into the research” I mean I went straight to the source – I asked my Husband. 🤣

About 99% of the items on this list are things he told me he would love as a gift.

So here you go! A big fat list of gift ideas for men that are perfect for Valentine’s Day.

Unique Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas For Men

Bose SoundSport Wireless Headphones

So I own two pairs of Bose headphones – the QuietComfort 20 Noise Cancelling Headphones and these SoundSport Wireless Headphones (pictured above), and I’ve got to tell you, the soft tips that go into the ear are ah-mazing. These are the most comfortable earbuds I have ever worn! Bose is known for its sound quality and they do not disappoint with these earbuds. These Bose SoundSport Wireless Headphones are perfect for when he is at the gym, too, because they truly don’t fall out, even while running! Learn more about these HERE

Cel Phone Case

Get him a new phone case! Is he one to drop his phone 3,297 times a day? (If so, get him the practically indestructible OtterBox, quick!) What’s his favorite color? Who is his favorite sports team?

My husband and I both have the SUPCASE Unicorn Pro Series cases (I got the green and he got the black) and we love them.

Omaha Steaks

You almost can’t go wrong with this one. Meat is often inherently linked to manhood. Silly, I know. But hey, at least this makes life easier for us when it comes gift-giving time. Get ’em some MEAT!

By the way, did you know Omaha Steaks also sells seafood, wine, and sinfully delicious desserts? (The tartlets are TO DIE, you guys. Seriously.) They even have dog treats! (LOL) Check out Omaha Steaks HERE.

Speaking of steaks…

BBQ Grill

Char-Broil Gas2Coal 3-Burner Liquid Propane and Charcoal Hybrid Grill

Warm weather = GRILLING SEASON! And he needs a smokin’ new grill (cheesy pun intended) to show off his ultimate Grill Master skills. One Father’s Day I surprised my husband with the Char-Broil Gas2Coal 3-Burner Liquid Propane and Charcoal Hybrid Grill (the one pictured above), and he still hasn’t stopped thanking me for “the best present I’ve [he’s] ever received.” And the best part about getting your husband a grill: You don’t have to cook! He will!

ROMANTICIST 20pc Stainless Steel BBQ Grill Tool Set 

Already have a grill? Then I bet he’d love an upgrade on his grilling accessories! And this 20 piece’r even comes with its own storage case. BONUS! (Which means this Grill Set can be easily brought and used on camping trips as well!) See what’s included in this grill kit HERE.

Bose SoundLink Color Bluetooth Speaker II

Ok, so we are in loooooove with this speaker. My husband has it outside while he’s grilling. It’s water-resistant, so we use it in the bathroom to listen to music, audiobooks, podcasts, etc. while showering.

“I Love My Wife” T-shirt (read the hilarious fine print!)

I mean, of course, you’d want your Husband to wear a shirt professing his love for you, right?! But upon closer inspection, it actually has a slightly different message. Comes in men’s and women’s sizes. And tons of different colors, too. I’m totally going to get THIS ONE for my gamer husband!

Speaking of gamer husbands…

Women reportedly have a greater sense of smell than men. (So true for me. I can smell EVERYTHING, and my Dude can never smell anything!) Which is probably why us women flock to a good smelling man like moths to a light. Ok, bad simile/metaphor (“did you just call me a moth?!”) but you know what I’m talking about. Getting your husband an irresistible cologne is a win for him and for you!

Ps…Girl, Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue pour Homme is where it’s at. Oh. My. Gah. Mmmmm!

Game Night!

Save money and have a stay-at-home game night (or day)!

My husband and I are total geeks when it comes to board and card games. We have an entire stash. We watch Wil Wheaton’s show “TableTop” on YouTube on the reg, always on the lookout for new games that we want to try out. We have younger kiddos so we put the kids to bed, grab our drinks, set up the board and game pieces, and the last man standing wins!

And yes, Candy Land and Chutes and Ladders are ones we play together all. the. time. Told ‘ya we were dorks. LOL!

Ok, so I loooove my wine subscriptions. (We used to live in California and every time we’d visit Napa we’d come home with a new subscription! Oops.) My husband loves wine, but he loooooves beer. He especially loves trying out new beers that he hasn’t had before, and ones he can’t buy at the local grocery store.

3D Skull Silicone Ice Mold

For the whiskey drinker – (Or really, for any drink that can be made “on the rocks.”) Who doesn’t want an oversized skull of ice in their drink, right?!
