Wondering what to get your significant other this Valentine’s Day? The answer is that you don’t have to get them anything. A nice card and their favorite food will do just fine.
If you do want to get him a little something though, here are 25 of the best valentines day gifts for him this year.
Top Valentine’s Day Gifts for Him this year
A weekend getaway in a cool property on Airbnb
If he’s a little more adventurous, he might like a weekend away in a unique property on Airbnb.
Perhaps you can rent a houseboat in San Diego, a tiny home in Portland, a hobbit house in Washington, or a treehouse in Hawaii?
There are so many cool and unique properties on Airbnb and you’ll have a blast making memories together.
My favorite trip with my husband was renting a cottage on a vineyard in Southern California. It was such a cool experience and it was beautiful waking up to the sunrise over the vineyard every day.

America the Beautiful Land & Recreation Pass
Does your significant other like to get outside a lot? He might like a National Parks Pass from the National Park Service.
The America the Beautiful Land & Recreation Pass gives you access to 2,000 federal recreation sites.
(This includes ALL popular national parks such as Zion National Park or Yosemite).
The pass is under $100 for the whole year. Learn more here.
Nike Tech Fleece Jogger Pants
Gone are the days when it was OK for men to wear ratty gray sweatpants (thank goodness).
I should also mention that there are Under Armour versions of these exact track pants. They have less 5 star reviews than the Nike ones (Nike ones are all 5 stars) but they are a bit cheaper. Check out the Under Armour version of the men’s joggers here.
Now if you want to go really lux this Valentine’s Day then consider the Lululemon jogger pants. I got my husband these for his birthday last year and they look great on him – although it was over $100 for the pants!
Patagonia Sweater Quarter Zip Pullover
This is one of those really practical gifts that he’ll love. Patagonia stuff is awesome quality and this quarter zip sweater looks great dressed up or down.
My husband wears his over button down shirts when the weather is cold. My favorite color for this sweater is gray but it comes in all different colors. Check out the Patagonia quarter zip pullover here.
Hershel Card Case
Have you ever noticed that your guy’s wallet is huge and it makes it hard to sit down? I noticed that about my husband’s wallet last year and decided to get him a card case.
Vans Slip On Sneakers
Vans slip on shoes look good with everything and they’re comfortable. I think they make men look more stylish when they’re wearing more casual attire. You can dress them up too. Check out these Vans (which are on sale) here.
Editable Love Coupons
I LOVE this idea! For a very inexpensive price, you can customize these printable love coupons to say anything you want and gift them to your significant other. They are digital downloads so you don’t have to wait for anything to ship and can print them at home. This is perfect for the last-minute gift! Check them out on Etsy here.
I know for my husband I would write “one hour of interrupted guitar practice” because he never feels like he has enough time for that activity. You could write something like “back rub” or something special to you guys. Love it!
Dollar Shave Club
This is how Dollar Shave Club works – you buy a membership and they ship a box of new razors every month.
You can choose to pick out products such as the after-shave gel called “Shave butter” if you want to. I accidentally bought my husband this membership twice (yes, we have two boxes delivered to the house per month).
I don’t mind though since I keep the second box for myself – these razors are goood. Plans start at $1 per month plus shipping costs. Check out Dollar Shave Club here.
23 and Me at Home DNA Test
Is your guy interested in knowing more about his ancestry and his DNA?
This 23 and Me DNA kit offers a detailed breakdown of your ancestry from 31 populations worldwide.
The kit shown here is just the DNA kit but you can upgrade to the expensive health kit and get all of the health data available for your genetic profile as well.
I personally just have the regular kit. Check out the 23 and Me DNA Test on Amazon here.
Wisdom Panel 3.0 Breed Identification DNA Test
Does your significant other have a pup? Check out the Wisdom Panel kit which does breed identification for your dog.
There are more than 250 breeds covered and this is the largest database of its kind in the world. It’s time to figure out what breeds made up your lovable furry friend. Check it out the doggy DNA kit on Amazon here.
Pop in a Box Subscription Program
Does your guy like Marvel, DC, and all superhero stuff? My husband LOVES this stuff and really wants this Pop in a Box subscription program.
Basically you can choose the category such as “heroes” or “Marvel” and they will ship you a box of Pop characters each month. Categories include:
- Marvel Universe
- James Bond
- You name it
Learn more about Pop subscriptions here.
Foam Roller for Deep Tissue Massage
If your guy likes to work out and doesn’t have a foam roller yet, get him one!
These things DO WONDERS. After a hard workout, you roll out your hamstrings, quads, and other tense muscles for deep massage and relief. They help you recover faster and all the serious gym-heads have these. Check out this foam roller on Amazon here.
D’Addario Two-Way Humidification System for Guitars
This inexpensive humidifier is a fan-favorite for guitar-lovers. It keeps the wood in your guitar properly hydrated by maintaining the proper humidity levels in the guitar case. This is a must from preventing the wood from cracking.
The humidifier is tiny and your guitar lover will know exactly how to use it (and be pumped you knew to buy him it!) Check out this D’Addario humidifier on Amazon here.
The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F
I think the title of this book says it all. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F is for any guy who is always looking for a little self-improvement and personal development.
This book was a New York Times Best Seller and has sold over a million copies. Check it out on Amazon here.

From tailgates to parties, days at the beach or by the pool, BBQs – I can think of so many uses for this portable speaker set. It’s one of the top rated and top reviewed devices on Amazon.
I bought one for myself last year and LOVE IT.
This is my most gifted item to friends and family.
