Shopping Valentine's Day gifts for men can be a difficult task — you wanna spend your good dollars on things your dude will actually love, rather than mindlessly wrapping up a corny, heart-shaped throwaway. Often that means seeking out products that are part splurge-y and part personal.
Admittedly, we aren't experts in "man things" by any means, but when it comes to sourcing highly sought-after products, we have a thing or two to recommend at every budget. If you're looking to flex your gift-giving skills for your beau — be it your boyfriend, husband, or (ahem) friend-with-benefits hookup buddy — come February 14, you've come to the right place. Ahead, peruse our selection of unique (and highly useful!) items across fashion, beauty, home, and entertainment that will aim straight for your S.O.'s heart.
