Looking for a Valentine’s Day gift for your husband? Men are notoriously bad at letting their significant others know what kinds of gifts they would like. As men, we own it. We suck at this. (Maybe you’re lucky and your husband tells you exactly what he wants. Of course, when he’s constantly begging for a Ferrari, he’s not f***ing helping the situation.)
When it comes to Valentine’s Day, you could buy some lingerie for yourself and wear it for him while you two try out the latest sex positions (if you feel like it and once the kids are asleep, of course, and we mean really asleep). But that’s probably not going to surprise him, considering which holiday we’re talking about. (Want to keep him on his toes? Try the lingerie trick on a random day in April. He’ll be surprised then.)
If you need some help finding Valentine’s Day gifts for your husband or even a gift for your boyfriend, don’t bother asking him. He probably has no clue anyway. (Although if he’s reading over your shoulder, he has the lingerie idea stuck in his head now. Our bad.) All Literotica aside (because that’s a gift that’s really for you, not us), there are plenty of things you can get your husband apart from things that are used to spice up the evening. We love the practical stuff too. He’ll always like something beer-related and it’s guaranteed that he’ll never not need clothes or grooming products — we wear/use what we’ve got till we can’t (and probably a little after that, too).
1st Valentine’s Day Gifts For Husbands
Guys aren’t the best at taking care of themselves (hand cream, healthy foods, or clean beards), but if he’s never tried a beard kit like this, he may at least change his mind about caring his face. This kit includes beard growth oil and balm, shampoo, a comb, a boars hair brush, and stainless steel scissors.
One reviewer said, “I have had this product for a few days now and I have tried everything that’s included and I must say it is very much worth the money. The wooden comb just glides through my coarse beard and doesn’t break or split the ends in any wise. The oil is really light and works right into the beard, as well as the beard balm. Everything softens and soothes my beard insomuch that I can actually feel the difference from the then to now and it has only been a few days.”
We know your hubby is no bartender, but it’ll be fun to watch him try! Gift him this official, top-of-the-line Mixology kit that includes a leak-proof cocktail shaker, a stirrer, a bottle opener, a cocktail recipe booklet, and more!
Apple AirPods are so cool, they’re appropriate for any gift giving holiday. In fact, they might be too good for him. So, depending on how he behaves during the first few weeks of February, he may receive these AirPods or he may receive some earbuds you found in the $1 bin … and you may have a new pair of AirPods. #selfgifting
When your significant other constantly complains that he has no idea what to do for date night or that he’s bored with the same old date night, first, tell him to stop whining. Second, try this cute thing to get your boyfriend for Valentines Day. It has 100 ideas for date night, giving you plenty of things to try. Sure, you receive some benefit out of this gift, too. But you deserve it.
For some guys, trying different hot sauces is a rite of passage. If your eyes aren’t watering and your nose isn’t running, it’s just not hot enough. This hot sauce gift set will challenge the taste buds and tear ducts, all while “spicing up” your Valentines Day. (Sorry. We weren’t going to use that predictable and awful pun in this particular story, and then we did anyway. Truly uncreative. Almost as bad as giving a plain old box of chocolates for Valentines Day.)
Scents like tobacco are typically considered “manly” scents, but that’s heteronormative and the truth is any scent can be a “man scent.” A lot of guys like lighter fragrances, like this delightful sea salt and sage candle from Paddywax. It has a deep robust scent without being overpowering.
What better gift than the gift of yourself on a new pair of undies? These pair of cotton underwear are comfortable, hilarious, and is sure to put a smile on your significant other’s face. You have a choice of three different colors and can add up to three different photos!

Bonus points if your husband suddenly realizes he’s been singing the lyrics incorrectly for years.
If your hubs love to curse AND to cook, this apron is the perfect gift. Plus, it encourages him to cook more, which is also a gift for US. Brilliant or brilliant? It’s also functional, as it has the ideal amount of pockets and is durable to withstand all the sauce splashes and flour-coated wipes.

If your husband or boyfriend needs a hobby, this Valentines Day gift works nicely … and it makes tasty beer. Win-win. Multiple flavors of beer are available in this kit, so you can find your significant other’s favorite, or he can create a new favorite.
Here’s a different idea for a hobby for the guy who’s not interested in beer. With this kit, you’ll be able to ferment your own hot sauce, which you don’t see all that often. Whether he likes to eat hot sauce or just likes to experiment while cooking, this could be a fun one.
If you love it when you and your significant other cook together — or if you would love it if you two actually did cook together — this book is a fun place to start. It has dozens of great recipes that include alcohol as an ingredient. And if you sample that ingredient when you’re cooking … well, that’s kind of the idea. (Just remember, if you see multiple recipe directions on the page after sampling, focus on the one in the middle.)
If your husband or boyfriend loves grilling, this bacon flavored sea salt is a nice gift. (It’s also available in more than a dozen other flavors.) It’s the perfect finishing touch for steaks, chicken, and pork chops. Heck, it even works on grilled vegetables, adding a smoky flavor that will have him feeling like he’s now truly deserving of that World’s Greatest Grillmaster apron he received last Valentines Day.
If your guy likes gaming, this vintage-inspired Street Fighter arcade would look great in any man cave. It’s almost 4 feet tall, so it feels like the original machine, complete with blocky graphics.

Those who love whiskey on the rocks know the challenge of having just the right amount of ice melt in the drink before it becomes too watered down to enjoy. This kit allows you to freeze a wedge of ice in the whiskey glass, and the shape slows the melting process quite a bit, allowing your husband or boyfriend to take his time while enjoying the whiskey. (Now if he would just take his time with a certain other thing on Valentines Night…)
If you’d prefer non cheesy Valentines Day gifts for him, this waterproof Bluetooth speaker is practical. He can listen to his playlist while working outdoors or in the garage. Or he can use it when he wants to sing along in the shower. Loudly. (Even the best Valentines Day gifts for the husband or boyfriend occasionally have their drawbacks.)
For the guy who loves attending concerts, sporting events, movies, or anything that requires a ticket, you can store the ticket stubs in this book to remember all of your favorites. Maybe combine this book with tickets to his favorite team’s next game or to an upcoming concert for a great pair of Valentines Day gifts for him.
Sure, you could give him a box of chocolates this year. But that’s not exactly the most creative Valentines Day gift for a boyfriend or husband. (And if he gives you a box of chocolates, feel free to show him the last sentence and let him feel the shame of being uncreative.) Instead, give him a sweet gift that reminds him of his childhood with this box of vintage candy. (We’re assuming it is fresh candy that mimics old candy, not the other way around.) Depending on the age of your sweetheart, there are boxes for decades from the 1940s through the 1990s.
If your significant other and you have trouble agreeing on ideas for places to travel, this book may solve the problem.

(Your level of sobriety during the trip is up to you.)
