In a pre-covid world, I loved gifting experiences or activities that Tyler and I could do together. But since that’s not an option, here are some alternative Valentine’s Day gifts for the man in your life:
1. Vinyl Record
If your partner is a vinyl collector, gift them a sentimental album. Choose one from the first concert you went to together, one that contains “your song,” or the soundtrack to a movie that you both loved. This is one of my go-to Valentine’s Day gifts for Tyler!
Give him the gift that keeps on giving! Subscription boxes are so fun! Many of them come with flexible options – you can purchase just one box, a gift card, or gift a 3, 6, or 12 month subscription. Here are some great men’s subscription boxes:
- Winc (wine)
- Drift Away Coffee (coffee)
- Dollar Shave Club (grooming)
- Flaviar (spirits)
- Sprezza Box (accessories and trinkets)
- Birchbox Grooming (grooming)
- Book of the Month (books)
- Scent Bird (fragrance)
- Good Cigar Co (cigars)
Buy him a watch that fits his lifestyle without breaking the bank! I’ve put together an assortment of smart watches, watches for work, and casual watches at different price points:
Get your guy some great basics! Tyler wears all of his clothes until they fall apart. If your partner is the same, try replacing their well-loved shoes! I would opt for a simple style (neutral colors) that they can wear with everything. If they have some 2021 fitness goals, you can show your support with some new running shoes too. Here are some great, versatile options:
5. Chocolate/Candy/Baked Goods
Saved the obvious for last. Give them ALL the sweets! Tyler is a huge chocolate lover, so I will definitely add some brownies and other goodies to our Valentine’s Day agenda. If you’re not a baker- show your support and consider ordering local since small businesses have been hit hard by Covid-19. In the US, I recommend ordering a box of Fran’s chocolate covered caramels. For UK residents, Love Brownies and Konditor brownies are always a good option! If you want to buy something quick and easy from Amazon, I linked several options below:
