If you’re looking for the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for him, you’re in luck. There are plenty of great options out there, and no need to resort to cheesy clichés.
A thoughtful and unique gift is always a hit, so why not consider something that speaks to his interests or hobbies? If he loves spending time outdoors, maybe a hiking or camping trip is in order. Or if he’s more of a homebody, how about tickets to a concert or sporting event?
When it comes to choosing the right gift, the most important thing is to put yourself in your partner’s shoes and think about what would make him happy. So take some time to brainstorm and don’t be afraid to go the extra mile. Remember, you’re investing in your relationship with this present, so take the time to make sure it’s something he’ll truly love.
1. Scratch The World Travel Map
Another Valentine’s Day together? Check. Another adventure in the books? That’s where this scratch-off world map comes into play. A bucket list of sorts, this map may inspire him to book another couple’s trip.
2. Letters To My Love Time Capsule
Spend a few nights writing 12 heartfelt letters to your loved one about all the ways he inspires, encourages, or loves you. Then seal them in this paper time capsule and tell him to open a letter when he needs it most.
3. Compact Leather Key Holder
Once he adds up to six keys on this monogrammed leather keychain, he won’t deal with any annoying jingling in his pockets. Instead, this unique design lets his keys fold in and out just like a pocket knife.

Keep his eyes on the future with this inspiring coffee table book full of 1,000 adventures on other continents and in his own backyard.
5. Elgin Leather Card Case
Upgrade his over-stuffed, over-used wallet with this sleek leather option from Fossil. With two card slots, one ID window, and two additional pockets, it’s big enough to store his essentials without weighing his pockets down.
6. Temperature Control Smart Mug
With this battery-powered mug, he can sip his morning coffee at his own speed without compromising taste. He can even figure out the perfect temperature for his taste buds — somewhere between 120ºF – 145ºF — and control the temperature of the mug through an app, so he won’t have to settle for lukewarm coffee.
7. Our Q&A a Day: 3-Year Journal For 2 People
You two are in it for the long haul, which is why this 3-year journal makes the perfect gift. Each day for the next three years, this journal will prompt a question to encourage deeper conversations and self-reflection.
8. Exotic Jerky Bouquet
A dozen roses are more your speed, not his. For a small (but equally sweet) gesture, gift him a bouquet of 20 long-stem sticks of elk, buffalo, and venison jerky.
9. Our Moments Couples: 100 Conversation Starters
No one wants to be that couple sitting across from each other at a romantic restaurant … with nothing to talk about. This pack of 100 cards inspire meaningful conversation, which is a must in any solid relationship.
10. Smartphone Camera Lens Kit
Thanks to you, he can leave his bulky DSLR at home. When he attaches the macro or wide-angle lens to his smartphone, he’ll get Instagram-worthy shots with older phone models.
11. Six-Pack Greeting Card
Make a practical gift more personal by adding a special message of your choice. Beer not included, so it’s up to you to choose his fave.
12. Tile Pro
Tile syncs with his smartphone, Siri, Alexa, and Google Assistant to keep track of stuff that he always seems to misplace (like his phone, wallet, or camera). The brand-new model can track its synced device up to 300-feet away, double the original version.
13. Ticket Stub Diary
Gather all the concert tickets, movie stubs, and plane tickets you’ve been collecting throughout your relationship and store it in this keepsake book. For bonus points, pair it with a pair of tickets to see his favorite band.
14. Indoor Putting Course
When the cold weather prevents him from going out for a round of golf, he can bust out this portable putting green to get his fix. If he doesn’t have enough space to keep the 9-foot green out in the open, he can easily roll it up to store.
15. The 5 Love Languages For Men
You’re probably well aware of Gary Chapman’s best-selling book The 5 Love Languages, but did you know there is a special version for guys? Many Amazon reviewers dub this book “eye-opening” and a “marriage saver,” so it’s worth a read for any guy (you, too).
16. Whiskey Wedge
If whiskey is his nightcap of choice, then these jumbo ice wedges are the best way to keep his drink chilled without watering it down.
17. Portable Campfire
Made of non-toxic recycled soy wax, this easy-to-get-going campfire can go where traditional campfires can’t. He can throw it in his bag and set fire when he finds the perfect spot without worrying about flying embers or post-campfire cleanup.

For the photographer who appreciates a good throwback, this vintage-inspired leather camera strap is a thoughtful gift that he’ll actually use. By adding his name or monogram, it’ll also be able to distinguish his gadget from the rest

If he’s going to drink all that brewski, he might as well boast about it. With this wooden map, he’ll even feel inspired to drink a local brew from every state until it’s complete.

The couple who sweats together stays together. If he joins you (willingly or otherwise) for hot yoga or pilates, he can use this microfiber towel to absorb his sweat and prevent his yoga mat from sliding around.
22. QuietComfort 35 II Boss
These wireless headphones are an investment for sure, but he’ll think of you every time he wears them. Along with their incredible sound quality, the cushioned ears are comfortable enough for him to wear all day long.
23. Wireless Charger
Not only does this dock eliminate the look of messy wires, it doesn’t have any annoying bright lights that’ll keep you (er, him) up all night. Just make sure his smartphone is compatible first
