I can’t believe that Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! I always find it an exciting holiday to gift for — do you go for a big-ticket item? Do you opt for a small gift? Do you go after an experience instead? I polled a few men in my life and asked them what the ideal V-Day gifts would be. Here’s a roundup of the best Valentine’s Day gifts that would be perfect for the man in your life!

The Best Valentine’s Day Gifts for Him:

Whiskey & Cigar Set | UGG® Tasman Slipper |
Carhartt Work In Progress Hat | Electric Gooseneck Kettle | Slim Fit Plaid Shirt
Leather Airtag Keychain Holder | Runamok Cocktail Gift Set | Wireless Charging Station + Valet Tray
Comme des Garçons x Converse Sneakers | Off-White Wallet 
Bluetooth Belt-Drive Stereo Turntable | Leather Travel Dice Set

Does your partner constantly lose their keys like mine does? AirTags can help you find essential items, but they don’t come with any keychains, making it somewhat difficult to attach to certain things. I love this leather AirTag keychain holder because you can get it monogrammed, and it’s truly a gift for both you and your partner. You might never have to help them look for their keys ever again!

If you’re gifting a big-ticket item this year, a designer wallet is always a good gift. This wallet by Off-White is quirky and on-trend, but you can’t go wrong with anything from Farfetch’s selection (plus, they ship pretty fast). I also gifted Tom the 

If the guy in your life is a big fan of whiskey, consider gifting him this whiskey and cigar set (plus throw in a bottle of Scotch and a cigar so he can use it immediately!

A few other gifts that aren’t pictured above? I got Tom the Theragun percussive massager for Christmas a few years ago, and it was a huge hit — we both use it almost daily when we’re home. It does a fantastic job of relieving sore muscles and is perfect to use after workouts, traveling, or just because. Tom also loves LEGOs (along with a lot of his friends), and this Land Rover is one of the most quintessential LEGO sets.

Another gift I love to give on Valentine’s Day is the gift of experiences. Why not plan a fun, unexpected date to spice things up?

Some experience gifts I love to give are:

  • A day at your local wineries, breweries, or distilleries
  • Couples massages & spa date
  • A concert/play/comedy show
  • A surprise weekend trip (Getaway House would be a great option if you’re near one!)
  • Cooking class (sushi rolling would be a great option!)

    So many good ideas in here! I had theater tickets booked but I think that’s going to fall through because of work (had a big trial get bumped to February due to Omicron), so I think I need to get my husband a physical gift now for Valentine’s Day.
