Shopping for men can be a little tricky. Depending on the man in your life, it can definitely be difficult deciding on what will excite him the most. In my opinion, the key to giving a great gift is to simply be thoughtful, carefully considering his interests and selecting from there. Perhaps your guy loves video games, or he is into aesthetics. Maybe he clears his head by enjoying the outdoors, or he is an ace in the kitchen. Whatever piques his interest, take a deep breath. I got you covered. While this time has presented its own challenges due to Coronavirus and continued lockdowns for some areas, pour yourself some great wine and relax, because I have curated the perfect Valentine’s gift guide for him. With each item easily purchasable with the simple click of a button, you will have both the time and energy to plan your romantic date!
FOR THE FASHIONABLE GUY
Yes, we’ve been stuck at home last year and maybe most of this year, but there’s no reason your guy can’t feel fashionable whether he’s working from home, running errands, or going for a morning hike to get some fresh air.
Below, here are some of my favorite fashion-forward selections sure to impress.
These Ray-Ban Sunnies or Ferragamo are perfect for a guy-on-the-go and ooze old Hollywood glamour in a sexy, streamlined way. Available in different shades, they’re bound to make your man feel equal parts classy and cool.
This Everlane bomber jacket is an excellent addition to any man’s wardrobe. With its laid-back silhouette, functionality, and reasonable price point, this piece is bound to make your man feel like an off-duty celeb.
For the more outdoorsy man in your life, a Lacoste Puff Jacket is a must-have.
With its warm, insulated lining and windproof, water-resistant shell, this jacket is perfect for anything from a winter hike to a Saturday morning donut run for the kids. It is easily packable, perfect for travel or camping.
3. Jogger/ Sweat Pants
While it seems like we’ll all be avoiding jeans for quite some time (just me?) as we continue to muscle through working from home, there’s no need for the man in your life to sacrifice comfort for style. These Nike joggers are the perfect sweats to dress down to the gym or pair with slick white sneaks and a sweater to elevate the look while working from home.
The Basic Jogging Pants from Banana Republic are affordable, cozy, and endlessly chic. With their slim, tailored fit and practical pockets, they will seamlessly take him from the video game nights to errands and beyond.
For the guy who loves the gym, Adidas Ultraboost 5.0 DNA Shoes are essential. Not only are they ideal for running, but their lightweight, comfortable feel, and minimalist design also makes them a great option for everyday wear.
The Court Sneaker from Everlane is the cool, laid-back sneaker he can wear all day
every day. Easily dressed up or down with jeans or sweats, adding these to his wardrobe will automatically give him the option to elevate his look without sacrificing comfort or practicality.
Everlane also uses recyclable materials and partners with NativeEnergy to offset their carbon footprint, perfect for the eco-conscious man in your life.
FOR THE SELF-CARE GUY
For the guy who proudly pampers himself, here are a few options to give him the star treatment at home from massager to facials.
1. Portable Massager
If the RENPHO Deep Tissue Percussion Massage Gun looks intense, that’s because in short: it is. With its five speeds ranging from 1800-3200 rpm, as well as five different massage heads, this is the perfect shoulder massager for the athletic man.
For a more soothing approach to an at-home massage, I highly recommend the
MagicMakers neck massager. Not only does it have a chic design (very James Bond, in
my opinion), it also features eight massage nodes, heat, and adjustable speeds to ensure peak relaxation and healing.
When it comes to men’s skincare, there’s no better option than this affordable set from Kiehl’s. During cold winter months, it’s important to give skin a little extra TLC.
FOR THE GOURMET GUY
While some of your favorite restaurants are closed for dine-in, there’s no reason you can’t have a restaurant-quality experience from the comfort and safety of your home. These amazing gift sets are an excellent pick for a man whose’ happy place is in the kitchen.
1. Gourmet Coffee
If he loves a hot cup of joe every morning, The World Coffee Tour Box from Bean Box is as thoughtful as it is delicious. Highlighting a variety of 16 stunning samples from all over the world along with tasting notes and brewing tips, this is the gift that keeps on giving
2. Gourmet Cheese
If he appreciates artisanal dairy creations, this Spanish Cheese Assortment will definitely be a hit. Highlighting three varieties of cheeses complete with crackers, this will instantly transport him to Spain (even if we still aren’t able to travel!).
For the nutrition-conscious men out there, the Breville Juice Fountain Cold Plus
Stainless Steel Juicer is ideal for any guy who loves starting his day with a hearty,
healthful juice. With 2021 (and with that new fitness goals) rapidly approaching, this gift
will not only look sleek on his countertop but help him stay healthy all year round.
Although Valentine’s Day is a little different pre-pandemic time, a well-selected present is a surefire way to spark much-needed smiles and joy this year. Here’s to happiness, health, and the perfect gift for him! Enjoy your Valentine’s Day!.
