The 40 Best Valentine’s Day Gifts for Your Boyfriend or Husband

So, what are the best Valentine’s Day gifts for Men™, other than a jar of dirt filled with gold krugerrands? We asked a whole bunch of real life dudes what the best gifts they’ve ever received are, and they swore by everything from gardening tools to flasks that won’t quit. What about the best V-Day gifts you can give the men you love? “daddy” in-between ball-gags? The best gifts for husbands, the best presents for long-term (or new) boyfriends, and—lest he be left behind as Union Pool’s Cinderella—Tinder Brian? These rad men are not only bona fide dudes, but they’re dudes who have a romantic place in your personal reality show. They have at least one audition this week.  

You might want to bless your long-term boyfriend with a present that reads, “I know how much you love meatballs, and I know how much your posture sucks.”There are many online butcher shops that sell organic meats and low-profile braces for sweet, meaty sweeties. If you’re looking for the best present for someone you just started dating, consider something as emotionally neutral (yet, subtly charged; keep them on their toes) as an outdoorsy pour-over coffee kit, or a great chef’s knife that costs less than your last bar tab. 

Whether you’re looking to sweep him off his feet with a trippy NFT or keep him cozy in some Stüssy winter headgear that is actually ~not~ a beanie, here are some of the best Valentine’s Day gifts for ye olde boyfriend, partner, husband, or whatever the male situationship in your life may be.

Because a knife can be both horny as well as neutral

It’s true. A fancy chef’s knife that costs under a hundred bucks can totally be a gift that feels like a shrug (what, like they’re your only situationship? getouttahere), or a divine hand on their shoulder that whispers, I know how long you’ve wanted to cut a steak in a single stroke. Slice, stud.

He won’t shut up about Ethereum

Polish him up 

Grooming is something that makes all the difference, but doesn’t come super naturally to all men, y’know? If his hair could use a little zhuzhing (or if he’s always slathering his ‘do with a goo that’s probably chock full of carcinogens), stuff his stocking with Aesop’s amazing-smelling, shine-infusing Hair Polish; it’s perfect for a guy who wants that slicked-back, G Eazy vibe. 

Improve his posture

It’s a very specific kind of person who gets jazzed about a gift that improves their posture; usually a boomer dad/gamer/Virgo, and especially anyone who is a WFH hermit and looking to improve their posture. 

ComfyBrace

Posture Corrector

He’s one of those straight-edge-hardcore-camping vegans 

Naturally, he’s planning on taking you upstate soon. Your Beanie Baby will appreciate a good cup of coffee. This coffee is perfect for winter, thanks to its bright notes of citrus and baked apple.

Beers, bindings, bombing hills

A plant he can’t kill

Philodendrons are easy-going plants. They’re excellent climbers, and can tolerate as much or as little water and light as your boo deems necessary. They have heart-shaped leaves. Aw.

He’s a jam band baby 

Because he’s already hogging the closet with merch from the Dead’s 1969 McFarlin Auditorium gig (understandable), but he’s yet to own a versatile, dancing skeleton bandana that can cradle everything from joints and bits and bobs, to that sweet cranium of his, and some beer glasses with vintage Dead posters.

This book is a must-read about traditional tattoos 

Is your man a tatted daddy? Grab him Taschen’s big, beautiful book of legendary Dutch tattooist Henk Schiffmaffer’s work and archives, which meticulously documents the modern history of tattooing around the world. (Schiffmacher has tattooed everyone from Kurt Cobain, Lady Gaga, and more. It’s a hell of a coffee table book, and one your inked up dude is guaranteed to pore over (and use for new tat ideas).

Alarm clock that stops the awful ringing in your cell phone 

Although it is convenient to use your phone as an alarm clock, it can also make us feel anxious every time the ringtone goes off. Getting a proper alarm clock may seem weird and old school, but not when it’s the Loftie, a new smart alarm clock that doubles as a white noise machine and soothing-vibe beacon. Designed to reduce stress and improve sleep quality, it’s full of features that make hitting the sack feel like a spa treatment.

A sherpa-lined trucker jacket

What do we need in a man for the holidays? Cozy, lumbersexual energy—like he could build you a knotty-pine-floored cabin with his bare hands, then pick you up, wrap you up in a bearskin rug, and carry you over to the fire for hot toddies. Regardless of whether your mans can actually accomplish any of these things, he’ll look the part in this sherpa-lined plaid jacket from Lucky Brand, which looks just as killer with Chucks as it does with broken-in work boots. [Supported by Lucky Brand.]

Cast iron is indeed worth the hype

We asked some of our favorite chefs if cast iron is all it’s cracked up to be, and they responded with a resounding, sizzling yes, because you can cook everything from meats to veggies, shakshuka to stews and more in the right semi-deep skillet. Lodge, a well-respected brand of cast iron, received unanimous praise. Their skillets are durable and can be seasoned correctly. They also look beautiful when they’re cooled on your burners.

A Carhartt jacket that will last us all

Carhartt is a favorite of all kinds of cutes, from buttoned up bros to grumpy pusks. Carhartt jackets are waterproof and breathable and feature a hood and are lightweight enough to be used as layering pieces. “I bought one of these 8 years ago,”One of the jacket-owners who is a ride-or-die enthusiast writes: “[and] I have gotten nothing but compliments on it. I wear it at work as an industrial electrician, at home, on cool days, or wet days. I have worn this in misty rain and torrential downpours, [and] it took 8 years to get to the point of water penetrating the outer layer, which is why I bought another exactly like it. Hopefully in 8 years, they’ll still be available.” Damn.

The best men’s hiking boots that aren’t ugly

These Salomons are almost too good to be true. We might have to make them part of the horny Chili’s date night ‘fit. There are loads of aesthetic men’Salomons is a brand that makes high-quality hiking boots, and they have a design that would make Rick Owens blush.

While camping, keep his tush warm

Camping rocks, and we’re all about it. But what we’re less enthused by is when the temp suddenly drops while you’re out in the wild old yonder and you’re left shivering instead of enjoying Slenderman stories and blackened mallows around a barely controlled campfire. That’s why Gobi Heat’s heating camping chairs—with three heat settings and up to nine hours of continuous heating power via battery—are just the right balance between outdoorsy and, dare we say, glamp-y; although, you know, we’d rather not use that word even if we like a little touch of luxury with our survivalism.

Some mitts to his mitts

These wax-coated gloves by Give’r are a slow burn gift. At first, he’ll be like, “Gloves?” and then after using them, he’ll be like, “Gloooves.”These will be his “everything” gloves—they’re heavy-duty, waterproof, and insulated for optimal protection, which means they’re good for everything from grabbing a burning log out of a fire to ice fishing in -25 degrees.

Toast to his health 

Imagine going on an adventure without this Firelight 750 Flask from High Camp. It fits a fifth of liquor or a full bottle of wine, the tumblers magnetically attach to the flask so they don’t get lost, and the wide mouth makes filling and pouring a breeze. This one’s a no-brainer, people.

This furniture is a better choice for sex.

Here’s an idea: Turn your living room into a horny, sex furniture-filled playground with the help of some strategic purchases, such as this chaise lounge that moonlights as a boning station. The curvature and width are ideal for two (or three or whatever) to be lubed up by human rubber bands.

A solid shed to hide his secrets

Becoming the proud owner of a solid wooden shed and a bunch of crypto is basically our generation’s version of owning a home and having a 401(k) plan. Think of all the cool bullshit y’all will be able to store in here; it’s basically an outdoor closet.

Baby’s first NFT

Have y’all been curious about NFTs, but also feeling like everyone who is already talking about them somehow ~knows~ the ins-and-outs? Fret not. We were also n00bs and did some research to find the best places where you can buy NFT and crypto art at a reasonable price. The online auction house 1stDibsIf you have some big goblin coins (money, we don’t mean regular, paper money), this is a great place. Their rotation of digital artists is beautiful and thoughtfully curated. Crypto.com also has pieces like this one by Snoop Dogg.

This rowing machine is an amazing work of art

Eames designed the Ergatta rowing machines? This is one of those items we dream about having in the ideal at-home gym set-up, because there’s something so gratifying about working out on an apparatus that relies only on cherry wood construction, spinning water, and a svelte shape that supports your form. Rowing is good for nine major muscle groupsSo, dude, you can pop a shroomy upstream and merrily travel to Swole City.  

He’ll be the envy of all his boys

You arrive at the party with a twelver and 11 other people like you. You show up with a Tundra Haul YETI Cooler full of suds, you’re a fucking hero. It’s the first-ever YETI cooler on wheels, and features unmatched insulation power and durability, which means this puppy is good for the trails, the beach, and house parties galore.

He will be the one to raise the bar

“Oh, your man doesn’t have a sope home bar setup?” That’s what you’ll be saying to your friends after you gift him this customizable home liquor tap. It works just like a beer tap, except you don’t need a complicated draft system. It’s great for parties, movie nights, and—honestly—it just looks wicked cool.
