Ladies, it’s that time of year again. The aisles of every store are being painted red and pink; romantic movies are taking over television; and somewhere out there, Cupid is dusting off his bow and arrow. Yes, Valentine’s Day is inching closer and whether you’re a fan of this love-focused holiday or simply participate out of obligation, this much is true: a gift for your husband is likely on your to-do list.
Finding the perfect present can often feel like trying to hit a moving target – blindfolded. But don’t fret, ladies! I’ve taken so much as a page from my marriage playbook, and from years of trial and error, I’ve come up with the ultimate Valentine’s Day gift guide for husbands. I like to think of myself as your personal cupid – albeit less chubby and more attached to her coffea arabica for energy. So, buckle up and let’s navigate this gift-giving labyrinth together, with 35 unique gift suggestions, each with their unique short writeup.
Husbands are interesting creatures. One minute they’re obsessed with that new craft beer, the next they’re all about fitness. It’s like trying to pin the tail on a mystery donkey that’s constantly transforming. But with a true love for the art of gift-giving and a knack for funny fails (like gifting my husband a cooking book, only for him to burn water), let’s dive into 35 unique Valentine’s Day gifts for your husband.
1. **Craft Beer Subscription** – If your husband is a hop-head, a monthly craft beer subscription is a no-brainer. Just be prepared for an increase in ‘Beer Talk’ at dinner and, possibly, a tighter waistband on your hubby.
2. **”The Art of Shaving Sandalwood Kit”** – For the metro-man. A little luxury for his everyday shave. It might even convince him to shave off that beard he’s been rocking since 2014.
3. **Personalized Whiskey Barrel** – Small enough for his man cave but cool enough that you won’t mind it in the living room. Plus, your homemade Old Fashioneds will be on point.
4. **Fitbit Charge 3** – For the fitness junkie. It’ll keep track of his steps, sleep, heart-rate and more. Somewhat invasive, but he’ll love it.
5. **Custom Star Map** – The aesthetic and sentimental gift. It’s a snapshot of the stars at a place and time of your choosing. His romantic side will appreciate this.
6. **Personalized Leather Wallet** – Because his current Velcro wallet from 1999 needs a major update. Plus, you can get his initials on it.
7. **”ChefSteps Joule Sous Vide”** – For the cooking-loving husband. Let him experiment with his culinary skills. And you can enjoy his tasty dishes, it’s a win-win.
8. **Acoustic Guitar** – Is there a dormant Dave Matthews in your man? Unleash his inner rockstar! Fair warning, you may be subject to off-key serenades.
9. **Spalding NBA Basketball** – To re-ignite his high school point guard dreams. Even grown men like new toys.
10. **”Drone Anafi”** – Because he’s still a kid at heart. Indulge his playful side.
11. **Antique Globe Bar Cart** – Classy and functional. Your living room will feel like a set from “Mad Men”… just watch out for impromptu Cocktail hours.
12. **BOSE Noise Cancelling headphones** – For his love of music, or to block out your rom-com marathon nights.
13. **Nintendo Switch** – Unleash his latent gaming prowess.
14. **Custom Photo Book** – For the sentimental husband, a book full of special memories curated by you is a sweet touch.
15. **Monogrammed BBQ Tool Set** – He’ll be king of the grill with his own personalized set.
16. **YETI Rambler Colster** – The manly version of a wine cooler. Perfect for backyard BBQs and tailgates.
17. **Personalized Cufflinks** – For the professional husband. He’ll look dapper and think of you every time he dresses up.
18. **Portable Hammock** – Because every man dreams of kicking back on the beach or in his backyard.
Travel Bag** – Classy yet practical. It’s a winner for the husband who travels. Again, don’t let him keep using that gym bag from high school.
20. **Trench Coat** – Because the ’80s called and they want their windbreaker back. He’ll look like a male model in a classic trench.
21. **Wireless Charging Station** – For the tech-savvy (or tech-laden) husband. No more cluttered cords on the bedside table.
22. **Valentine’s Day-themed Socks”- Because love is about being cheesy sometimes.
23. **”Bose Frames Alto”** – Sunglasses and speakers in one? Welcome to the future.
24. **Leather-bound Journal** – For the writer, artist, or frequent flyer, a luxurious journal can be a much-appreciated gift.
25. **HydroFlask Water Bottle**- For the hiking lover, this keeps his drinks at the perfect temperature.
26. **Indoor Putting Green** – To support his golfing obsession without leaving the living room.
27. **”Call of Duty: Warzone” Video Game** – Because, like I said, he’s still a kid at heart.
28. **Bottle of Fine Wine** – A good choice for the connoisseur husband.
29. **Monogrammed Robe** – Because he kids himself that he’s Tony Soprano on ‘casual Sundays’.
30. **Home Brewing Kit** – If he loves beer, why not make his own?
31. **Tile Pro Bluetooth Tracker** – So he can finally stop losing his keys.
32. **Air purifying plant** – Because even though he won’t admit it, he loves your ‘Jungalow’ style.
33. **Motorola Talkabout Radio Walkie Talkies** – For practical outdoorsy communication or for being secret agents around the house.
34. **Pajama Pants** – Even if they end up at the bottom of his dresser drawer, he’ll appreciate them during the next polar vortex.
35. **Acedera Compact Binoculars** – Whether he’s into bird watching, hunting, or spying on the neighbors (just kidding!), he’ll love this gift.
Each husband is unique (thank God, am I right ladies?), and each relationship has its own inside jokes and sweet moments, so feel free to tweak this list to your man’s specific taste. But the ideal Valentine’s Day gift sends this message loud and clear: I know you. I appreciate you. And I love you. Now, how’s that for a bullseye?
