5 Valentine's Day Gift Ideas For Your Main Man

In the heart of winter, Valentine’s Day is a chance to cozy up with your man and show your appreciation with a personalized gift.

The holiday is a chance to celebrate everything you’ve shared so far, whether that be your first date, your first anniversary, or even your wedding day. You either need a gift that he would never ask for or one he’s been subtly — or not so subtly — hinting at for weeks.



The best gifts always come down to personalization. Start with a simple idea or gift categories, such as a new watch, shoes, or clothing to keep him stylish. Then, ask yourself: How can you make it all about him? Is his wallet super worn out? Has he avoided buying himself a new set of workout clothes in a year? A pair of new running shoes could get him back on the trail, sunglasses will get him ready for the next sunny vacation, or a fine timepiece can round out his look.

Check out these five Valentine’s Day gift ideas for the best guy in your life.


There’s nothing more iconic than gifting a classic wristwatch. There are many different directions you can go when choosing a watch that matches your man’s style. Select a watch he can wear as he heads out for a run, choose a conversation-starting piece for the office, or select something as laid-back and casual as his personality. You can even get a bit playful by picking out a watch with bright colors or graphics.


Nothing ends up getting more wear and tear than a man’s wallet. When it’s time for a new wallet, pick out a design that’s both durable and fitting of his unique style. The traditional leather bifold or trifold wallet comes in a range of colors and with a variety of embellishments. If he prefers keeping things sleek and simple, opt for a money clip that holds his cards and cash in place without the extra bulk.


Though often overlooked as a gift for men, shoes are an incredibly personalized way to express that you want them to feel comfortable and confident every day. If your guy has been putting off buying new work, exercise or everyday shoes, splurge on a pair he may not have found on his own. Do some sleuthing to find his shoe size and keep our free exchange and return policy in your back pocket in case of an imperfect fit.


It’s not too late to keep him cozy with a new knitted sweater or soft flannel. You can also look ahead to spring and pick out a tried and true windbreaker for his workouts, or his passion for hitting the trails with you. If you’re planning to cozy up inside for Valentine’s Day, you can even grab a new set of fleece-lined pajamas or loungewear to keep him comfy for the rest of the chilly months ahead.
