Hallmark sure knows how to stress us out. And, not just with the flood of sappy cards, heart-shaped treats, and pink-colored teddy bears. Rather, if your other half happens to be a dude, the gift pool tends to shrink significantly — really, those V-Day go-tos like roses and chocolates (despite their appropriate cheesiness) just won’t cut it here. You have to step out of the box and be more creative than that. And, no, this does not mean a novelty tie or random tools.
So, to avoid a "What do I get him?" freak-out, we rounded up 30 fantastic gifts he will actually want
and totally love. And, since it's probably best not to get your recent Tinder fling the same gift as your lover of 20 years, the presents ahead are categorized according to every type of romantic stage. Give any one of these to your S.O. (or pretty much any guy in your life), and we guarantee your relationship will last far past February 14. Go on, your killer men's gift ideas are just a click away — power drills not included.
And, if you're still on the hunt for more perfect presents, check out our other expert Valentine's Day gift guides. We're sharing our favorite picks for any kind of relationship
and any kind of price point
, including those adorable and affordable gifts
anyone in your life will adore.
