Valentine’s Day will be here before you know it. Your average man probably won’t be excited about a bouquet of flowers (chocolate might work, though)! We’ve come up with a list of out-of-the-box and traditional ideas that your husband will likely be ecstatic over. He probably won’t be expecting many of our selections either. Keep reading for some Valentine’s Day gift ideas that husbands will really appreciate.
Games, Gadgets, and Gear
We know how much you love it when your husband plays video games for hours on end. In all seriousness, video games can be a wonderful escape for adults. So give him the gift of even more playtime. The Xbox three-month game pass will provide access to various digital downloads and games.
Escape the Room has extended beyond locations that are physically visited to various products and games that can be played at home. Did you know that there are Escape the Room style subscription boxes? Puzzles and various mysteries come inside each month, providing hours of excitement and problem-solving.
Has he embarked on the journey of creating his own beer recipes? Or maybe it’s something you think he would genuinely love. Either way, a homebrew journal will allow him to keep track of progress, successes, and other important notes when it comes to making his own brand.
Prepare him for the ultimate fishing trip with this backpack tackle box. Instead of something hard to carry, a backpack will allow him to be hands-free while carrying all the essentials for angling. Various pockets and large compartments will make organization easy, and an LED lighting system adds even more ease.
Food and Drink
Ladies love to get flowers for Valentine’s Day, but what about the men? How about a bouquet made entirely of beef jerky! If it seems too good to be true, think again because that’s exactly what Manly Man Co. is known for. The perfect gift for your man (and his stomach).
Even those who don’t like beer will often admit that cooking with it delivers some pretty amazing results. So a trio of beer-infused barbecue sauces is the perfect gift for just about anyone. From IPA to amber, sauces like honey mustard and sweet and smoky barbecue have been enhanced.
Beer Drop is a box subscription company that delivers unique, handcrafted beer to your doorstep every month. A lot of flexibility is involved with this delivery service, as boxes can be switched, and beer selections can be customized. After giving him the gift of truly interesting beer every month for the year, you’ll be the best wife ever.
We will go ahead and say there are a ton of really amazing jerky boxes available out there. However, we like this Harry and David selection because of the plethora of meats inside and the delicious condiments that complement all the manly flavors.
Black Rifle Coffee is a veteran-owned company based out of Utah. Outlandishly named roasts range from light to extremely dark. They also have a ton of cool memorabilia! You can sign him up for a monthly membership box that you pay for all at once or monthly as you go along. He can taste most of their selections and will probably forever be a fan.
A seemingly simple gift, the grill master in him will be ecstatic when receiving cedar smoking wraps. The thinly sliced wood will enhance the flavor of fish, chicken, or any other grill-able food, taking it to the next level.
Grills are great, and griddles are awesome too. The flat surface allows your favorite cook to prepare vegetables and other seared dishes seamlessly, all while outdoors! Taking cookouts to a whole new level, he will be super excited to try this out.
Back to the grill! If he is a musician, rock band lover, and grill master all at the same time, he will appreciate a stainless steel set of grill tools with a special touch. The spatula is shaped like a guitar, and the set of tongs also has its own flair.
Some will argue that charcoal is the secret to better smoked and grilled meats. However, electric and gas can be great too. But this particular smoker uses charcoal to slowly cook fish, chicken, and beef to ultimate perfection. Not to mention, the price is pretty sweet too.
As you can see, we took the beer theme and ran with it. Candles add ambiance to homes, offices, and of course, man caves. He will have no problem lighting one up for the next poker night when those candles are beer scented.
Add some flair to his man cave with a mini fridge that can hold up to six cans of his favorite craft beer. Even better, gift it to him with beer inside! Perfect for small spaces, the Coca-Cola-themed cooler will fit into any aesthetic.
After incorporating a sports-themed totem pole inconspicuously in the corner, his man cave will be complete. Choose his favorite team, and surprise him with something he’s probably never seen before. Different themed sports icons are stacked on top of one another; needless to say, it’s an interesting piece.
Sit him down, let him kick his feet back, and surprise him with his favorite whiskey served in these golf ball-shaped glasses. Every whiskey-loving man needs a set of whiskey glasses that are reflective of his personality and interests.
Whether he travels a lot and needs a sleek toiletry case to go with his suitcase, or whether he just uses it for knickknacks and so on, this leather bag is both manly and elegant at the same time. It can be personalized, making for an absolutely timeless gift.
Is your man a musician? A customized wooden guitar pic is a subtle yet thoughtful gift. This one can be customized and engraved with your message. Coming in a wooden guitar-shaped gift box, he may not even want to use it but rather display it.
Do you have a furry baby in the family? Perhaps your hubby is his or her favorite. Opt for one of these personalized mugs that feature look-a-like drawings of your man, and sweet pup. He will probably drink coffee out of it every morning.
