While I have only ever bought a gift for my father on this holiday, Valentine's Day gifts for the men in our lives are always a little tricky. We quintessentially think of this holiday as just for the girls, and rightfully so, but I think it's nice to try to keep in mind that gifts for guys can be manly and romantic at the same time. Here are some ideas that I came up with that you can get for your dad, brother, boyfriend, husband, etc. Hope they help!
"One Pan, Two Plates" Cookbook ($25) : This book is a great idea to get for your significant other before the actual holiday, so then you can plan ahead and cook something together! Whip up something tasty and know you had fun making it.
Cupid Heart Print Boxers ($13) : These boxers from Gap are so cute/sexy and would be a great gag gift to give your boyfriend or husband.
D&G The One For Men ($62) : I've smelled this cologne in stores and it is heavenly. Buy it for your man!
You're A Fox Card ($5) : This card from Rifle Paper Co. is the perfect way to express your feelings for your boy-toy and not be too cheesy about it.
Keds Champion Spring ($45) : Keeping up with the theme of the holiday, these Keds sneakers are manly enough that your BF could wear them with any neutral outfit.
Poplin Shirt ($20) : If you're planning on going out to dinner on the special night, make sure he looks clean cut and handsome in this perfect button down.
Wayfarer Sunglasses ($4) : I am a weak-in-the-knees kind-of gal for a man who wears sunglasses. Just make sure he doesn't wear them at night.
The Beer Pong Socks ($8) : It's beer, Ping-Pong and affordable. Can't go wrong with that.
Beats by Dr. Dre Halo Headphones ($200) : These are a little more expensive, but I've only heard amazing things about these headphones. Again with the theme of the holiday, these headphones keep out distracting noise and are fashionable.
Wallace & Barnes Wallet ($68) : This J.Crew accordion wallet is made of leather and comes in a great color. Make sure your man brings it with him whenever you go out to eat, so he can pay for you.
Forage Stripe Bow Tie ($70) : I've never heard of Nest Dallas before, but their little online shop has some great items. This bow tie is one of them, and would look great with that white button shirt!
Rhino Art Print ($8) : Etsy is a great place to look for handmade gifts and items! When I came across this print that takes old books and enlarges different animals over the text, I thought what a great idea to put on this gift guide. It's different and original and would look great in your man's office.
Color-Block Pocket Tee ($20) : You just can't go wrong with a basic shirt that has a subtle twist to it! Not only are these tees super comfy, they last a long time also.
Hershey's Kisses ($2) : If you can't come up with anything else, give him a Hershey's Kiss and tons of love.
