A couple exchanges gifts for Valentine's Day.

By Franki Hanke

We’ve just recovered from December holiday shopping, but Valentine’s Day is right around the corner already. To help in your hunt for thoughtful gifts for your favorite guy, I’ve rounded up 16 Valentines’ gifts for men including cards! 

Remember, all dudes are unique. These ideas won’t represent every guy. 

Valentines Cards

A heartfelt card is always a great gift, but it can also be a useful backdrop to outline your date night plan if the real gift is the planning you did! 

Along with Valentines gifts for men, you need cards too.

One of our suggestions for a sexy gift, a new fragrance can be a flirtatious gift. Pair your scent selection with an intentional note to wear it tonight. A travel size can be easier on your budget, fit in their toiletry bag, and be a good trial for a new scent.

Choose a scent known for being sensual and seductive. 

Santal 33 Eau de Parfum 

Rich & woody with Sandalwood, Cedarwood, Cardamon, Iris, Violet, Leather, and Musk 

Armani My Way Eau de Parfum

Floral & bright with Bergamot, Orange Blossom, Tuberose, Jasmine, Vanilla, and Musk

While dinner out is just what the foodie wants, you can still find a little something to wrap up. 
Honey & Co is one of the best cookbooks I used last year with a blue cover and yellow spine.
Honey & Co Cookbook

Written by husband and wife cooks Itamar Srulovich and Sarit Packer with recipes from their London restaurant, this cookbook was a personal favorite read last year with delicious recipes and personal stories behind each one. For the home chef enthusiast, it’s an easy cookbook to dive into with a range of recipes. 

Turn the book into an at-home date night by pre-buying key ingredients for a recipe or two. Some essentials you may not have on hand include: 

If you’re not sure where to start, I recommend the sofrito!

Fine, flavored olive oil pairs with fresh cheese as a lovely shared snack.
Olive Oil

For the home chef, a fine olive oil is always a treat. If you’re cozying up together at home, a fresh burrata drizzled with olive oil is a luxe appetizer fit for two. Rancho Azul Y Oro’s oil is an award-winning, fine-flavored oil.

New coffee to try is a fun, easy to use gift for the espresso lover.

Coffee Beans

For the espresso aficionado, a new roast to try is a fun novelty that fits into their daily routine. Coffee beans are especially sweet if coffee is part of your routine together. Order a variety from American roasters to DIY a diverse sampler. 

If they don’t have one already, pair your beans with a Fellow vacuum coffee canister to store extra beans to keep them fresh. 


If you didn’t gift all their saved tech gifts, Valentine’s Day presents the perfect opportunity to snag their wishlist items. 

Travel Bluetooth Audio Transmitter

Seamlessly (cordlessly) connect Bluetooth Airpods to even wire-only airplane screens with this handy carry-on must-have. It plugs into the jack and transmits audio to your Bluetooth-only items. Off planes, it can be used on boats or other vehicles that may have the same restrictions.

Valentine’s Day is best spent together, so instead of a traditional wrapped gift, opt for something that will enhance your evening together, like wine. Use Drizly to order something from a local liquor store for delivery. 

Choose a wine that you’d both be excited to try, remember sharing previously, or go for one of the region’s best sellers! 


Don’t be afraid to give a man flowers! It can be an unexpected, surprisingly perfect gift for a man to receive flowers since they so often don’t! If you’re apprehensive, opt for bolder, less traditional colors and flowers for a less traditionally “feminine” appearance in your bouquet. 

Flowers may be an unconventional Valentines gift for men, but they shouldn't be!
Urban Stems Catalina

Featuring resilient Queen Protea flowers, modern Eucalyptus stems, and pigmented Leucadendron buds, this bouquet is in a deeper palette for a non-traditional look.

Paper flowers look stunning, but require no care!
Crepe Paper Florals

Take the non-traditional approach a step further with paper-crafted flowers. These don’t require the care of normal, fresh flowers and last forever in their decor.

Flowers don't have to be fresh to be fun. LEGO's flower sets provide an activity too.
Lego Flowers

The best Valentine’s Day gift may be the chance to play! An appropriately-themed floral LEGO gift set is an activity and gift in one. 

If your favorite man would rather have a Star Wars-themed set than a floral arrangement, don’t be afraid to stray from the Valentine’s Day theme, just pick a gift they’ll love!

Edible Valentine’s Gifts for Men

If you’re still reeling from the influx of stuff during December, keep Valentine’s Day simpler with an edible gift. If you’re currently long-distance, ship them directly! 

Print a custom message on a piece of beef jerky for a unique card replacement.
