Valentine’s Day is a great time to score some of the best gifts for men. That doesn’t necessarily make it any easier to shop for them. You might have gotten lucky in the past with anniversary, birthday and Christmas gifts, but “Love Day” may add more pressure to the equation. What exactly do you give the man in your life (boyfriend, husband, or maybe even Dad) to show how much you love them?

If he’s an undercover geek who loves gizmos, smart home devices could be just the ticket. He might be a spirits connoisseur whose bar could benefit from some fancy tequilas or glassware upgrades. He may be the simple type that values practical EDC accessories like Bluetooth trackers or noise-cancelling headphones? Something else to consider is a stylish new travel bag perfect for business trips and getaways. There are plenty of great gift ideas for men to look over.

By now, you should have a pretty good idea of what he loves (besides you, of course). And if you’re still on the fence, we’ve compiled this list of must-have Valentine’s Day gifts for him to help narrow down your selections. These men’s gift ideas span across every major category and price point, including gadgets, booze, cooking appliances, fashion essentials and numerous other cool finds.

In case you need some awesome gift ideas for your lady, check out our best V-Day gifts for her roundup to see what’s worth gift wrapping this February 14th. And to find the best gifts for him this Valentine’s Day, keep reading for our favorite gifts of the year.


1. Jabra Elite Active 75t True Wireless Earbuds

One month in and his “new year, new me” commitments are leading to health gains. Keep that momentum going by tossing a pair of sporty true-wireless earbuds into his gym bag. Jabra’s newest release is a category leader that packs better sound and battery life than the AirPods Pro into a waterproof design. No amount of sweat is going to wear these down anytime soon. Using the Jabra Sound+ app allows listeners to customize the EQ settings for personalized sound, plus Jabra has some other promising features coming down the pipeline in Q2 2020. Knowing how popular the previous model was, we recommend getting a pre-order in ASAP to secure a pair. We named these earbuds the Best Headphones of CES 2020, and they’re one of the best gifts for him you’ll find this year. If you pre-order now, they’ll arrive just in time for Valentine’s Day.

2.  Polo Ralph Lauren ‘Polo Player’ Cotton Robe

The king of the house deserves a warm, comfy bathrobe. Instead of dropping three figures on luxury brand options, keep it simple, cost-effective, and classy with this Ralph Lauren cover-up. Airy cotton fabric and a true-to-size cut make this loose-fitting outer garment a pleasant wear when lounging around the house. The signature Polo player print gives the robe a sophisticated look as well. His reaction when seeing this on the bathroom door after a strenuous workday will be that of a grateful husband.

3. LELO Tor 2 Couples’ Vibrating Ring

Sex toys can always help spice things up in the bedroom, which is why they’re always one of the best gifts for him (and that goes double for Valentine’s Day). LELO makes some of the most well-designed sex toys on the market right now, and their vibrating cock ring made to satisfy both him and her at the same time. It’s programmed with 6 different pleasure settings that range from what the company calls a “teasing murmur” to a “satisfying pulse.” The soft surface and large head also allow the device to act as a vibrator for stimulating her clitoris. You see how it works now? Double the action.

4. Truff Hot Sauces

Pleasing a man’s spicy palate can prove to be a tougher challenge than expected. Rather than disappoint him with a bottle of Sriracha, try something more upscale like this Oprah-approved truffle hot sauce. Yes, such a thing exists, and it already looks to be the condiment of 2020. Truff is a curated blend of red chilis, organic agave nectar, savory spices and black truffle that begs to be doused on every meal. Test the waters by picking up an individual bottle or go all-in on a variety pack that includes a limited-edition white truffle version. Stop salivating over the keyboard and add it to your Amazon cart.

4. Herschel Sutton Duffle Bag

Most guys have an old reliable gym bag that never gets replaced, even though it’s one tear away from retirement. Upgrade him with a new duffle bag from Herschel. The Sutton remains a favorite with a versatile design that affords lots of storage to carry travel gear and gym clothes. Herschel’s superior build quality is also upheld, thanks to self-healing fabric technology that maintains the pristine look and feel of the bag.

6. Nintendo Switch Lite

New gaming consoles often top men’s gift lists. Get a jump on this year’s most coveted gaming machine: the Nintendo Switch Lite. It’s $100 cheaper, smaller, and has a better battery life than the original Switch model. The inclusion of a traditional D-pad also works better for 2D platformers; playing NES classics like Metroid and Super Mario Bros. is far smoother. Access to the Switch’s massive library of games should keep him busy (and quiet) on the flight back home or commute to work.

7. The Beard Club Premium Kit

We’re several months removed from Movember, which means your man may be running low on beard care essentials. This is where The Beard Club comes through in the clutch. The grooming subscription service sells its well-reviewed beard products individually, and in affordable bundle sets, which offer much more bang for your buck. With the Premium Kit, he’ll receive a beard oil, cream, shampoo, body wash, brush, folding comb and a travel bag to store everything. TBC also throws in a sleek straight-edge razor with 10 blades and a holster for when he’s ready to ditch the facial bush for a smooth canvas. If you’re looking for gift ideas for bearded men, this is a must-have.

Each box comes filled with 100 printed idea cards, along with three dividers to keep tabs on what’s been done, what you’re doing, and what you plan on doing with your significant other.

11. LARQ Self-Cleaning Water Bottle

The most considerate gift you can drop in his stocking this Xmas isn’t a monogrammed coffee mug. It’s a water bottle. Even better, a water bottle that cleans itself. Introducing the LARQ, which does everything the average S’well bottle does (e.g. keep liquids cool for 24 hours), as well as disinfect the interior and purify water. How so? It features a self-cleaning mode that activates every 2 hours, while the button on the charging cap turns on the UV-C LED light to kill harmful, odor-causing germs. Thanks to these advanced features, this is one of the most in-demand gifts for men in 2020. Unfortunately, that means it’s currently on back-order.

A special edition release filled with distinctive flavors, Knob Creek Twice Barreled Rye is a whiskey meant to be equally admired and savored no matter the celebration.
