This Valentine’s Day season we decided to mix it up, we’re dropping a list of the best 10 gifts for that special man in your life! Often the boys are left to fend for themselves this week searching for the perfect gift to impress their girl, this year we’re sharing the love and dropping some cash for the handsome guy in our lives.
#10: A New Pair of Shoes
This might be one of the easiest picks, especially if your guy loves to cop the latest Jordans. Men’s tennis shoes, in general, can be a little pricey but maybe look for a more stylish color wave, or a new pair of workout shoes that will run you a little cheaper but get a lot more use. Websites like StockX are great for their wide selection and bidding options, but watch out it’s not an instant process you might be waiting until the shoes are available or your bid is accepted.
#9: Sporting Gear
Doubling down on the new pair of shoes, if your dude is a gym shark, a personal trainer, or just trying to get back in shape you can’t go wrong with grabbing some new sporting gear. Resistance bands, a pair of dumbbells, or a new basketball can be a great way to show your favorite guy you care about him and his health!
For centuries our men have been attached to their PlayStations and Xboxes, this Valentine’s Day attempt to indulge in the habit with them, maybe pick up a new game like The Last of Us Part II for Playstation or Halo Infinite for Xbox or a whole new system like the Nintendo Switch where you both can enjoy. Maybe your guy isn’t a gamer but loves tech, check out the Echo Show 8 to bring his man cave into the roaring ’20s or an Amazon Kindle Paperwhite for the quiet reader in your life.
#7: Books, Movies, or a Work of Art
Maybe your man is less jock and more artist and enjoys the finer things in life like a good book and a better bottle of wine try picking up Cleanness, by Garth Greenwell or Deacon King Kong: A Novel, by James McBride. Prefer seeing instead of reading? Pick up a copy of his favorite movie on DVD, you never realize how much of the movie is edited for stream services and often times the DVD is packed with deleted scenes and other fan favorites. Finally, maybe your man is the strong silent type who prefers evaluating art or building a collection. Obviously buying an original of any type will greatly deflate the pockets, but buying canvass prints is always a good option for the art connoisseur starting out and developing his taste.
#6: Boozy Gifts
If your man is a down-home gentleman that enjoys a nice bourbon with one ice cube try a Whiskey Glass and Stones set for when he comes home after a long day. If he screams James Bond with his love for the Vesper Martini, “shaken not stirred” look into this Martini Shaker Set. Maybe he’s a modest beer drinker who enjoys a cold one while he tinkers with his vintage car, a Beer Holster is the perfect way to keep his hands free, and never miss a sip. Finally, investing in a top-shelf bottle of booze also could be the perfect way to his heart and lead to a nice evening for you both.
#5: Sports Team Memorabilia
He may not be the most athletic, but he loves his [insert team name here]. Show him you care and you listen with some new team gear! If he’s a heavy-duty collector website like Sports Memorabilia have a wide selection of authentic jerseys, autographed collectibles, and more.
#4: “Gag” Gifts for The Jokester
Ugh, gag gifts are the absolute worst but if you have jokester in your life that still enjoys the whoopie cushion or fake vomit a gag gift will be perfect! These gifts have come a long way since our days of rummaging through Spencer’s in the mall and Amazon has some of the best around. He might enjoy putting while he poops or asking Trump for daily advice with a President Predicto.
#3: Lingerie and Other Bedroom Fun
Let’s be honest, most of our men could care less about a gift and more about the end of the night. Spice it up with some new pickups from our resident favorite Savage x Fenty, we’re especially feeling this Down The Aisle Xtra VIP Box complete with glitter pasties. Or turn the temperature up just a tad with these matching Locket Down Restraints. Oooh La La!
This month’s limiteded edition Down The Aisle Xtra VIP Box by Adam Selman features our down the aisle cupless bra, matching thong, glitter heart sticker pasties, and FREE collectible phone ring.
Gifts are cool, but we’re always going to take living in the moment and making memories! Plan a trip for bae (and yourself) whether you get a room in your city for a quick Valentine’s Day staycation (book last minute using the app Hotel Tonight since Vday is a Friday this year) or cop some cheap roundtrip tickets for a quick getaway using the app Jettsetter or last-minute deals!
#1: Event tickets (Concerts, Sporting Events, Festivals)
Like we said above making memories, and sharing experiences with your significant other will always be top of our list when it comes to gift-giving! Apps like Bandsintown are perfect for keeping you in the loop on concert announcements and dates coming to your city and the app syncs with your Apple Music, Spotify, or Youtube to pull those artists you love directly from your library. Apps like Stubhub allow you to make payments using Affirm if the tickets are a little out of your budget and Flashseats allow you to bid on tickets. There are millions of apps and sites to help you find cheap tickets so you never have an excuse to miss out!
