Valentine’s Gift Ideas for your Special Guy


Awesome Gifts for Your Special Guy this Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is on its way, ladies, and if you haven’t found your guy’s gift yet, the clock is ticking. He might already have your gift, and you don’t want to leave him wanting on the big day. Believe me, I know men are hard to shop for, but I’ve come up with a list that’s sure to contain something your special guy will love. From weekends away to presents that are perfect for the book nerd you love, you can make Valentine’s Day better than ever this year. Figure out what he likes and align that with this list for a stress-free occasion.

A Night Away

Sweep him away for a weekend of bliss and plan a getaway trip you know he’ll love. Book the hotel, plan the transportation, and pack him a bag so he doesn’t have to worry about anything. Have the car stocked with snacks for your road trip and put together a playlist of his favorite artists and songs. Check out for some last-minute deals and really impress him with your planning abilities. You may not be able to find inexpensive rooms the weekend of because hotels will be booked up, but you can always do it the weekend afterwards.

A First Edition Book

If the special guy in your life is a bibliophile, pay homage to his book sensibilities with a special edition of his favorite book. Whether it’s something as classic as Peter Pan that he loved as a kid, or he’s a Holden Caulfield enthusiast who has read Catcher in the Rye over 50 times, hunting down limited or first editions of his favorite literature will knock it out of the park on his birthday.

A Special Liquor

Maybe your guy is a spirits connoisseur. Instead of grabbing the same old bottle he always requests, grab a specialty liquor and drop a little bit of cash for an indulgence he won’t expect. Depending on his tastes, you’ve got a bevy to choose from, but I’ve got some recommendations for the basics. If he’s a cognac lover, check out the Delamain Pale and Dry XO. If he’s a tequila guy, you can’t go wrong with Patrón, and for the whiskey shooter, try out Glenlivet 18-Year.

A Fashion Box

If you’ve got a guy that loves to look good and has more designer duds in the closet than you do, consider grabbing him a subscription to a fashion box. There are multiple companies out there that will design a collection of threads based on his personal fashion tastes. Then, each month he can expect a delivery that will keep him looking debonair every day—without even having to go to the mall. Give Bombfell a try and see how good your guy looks with all the hand-selected items his own personal stylist sends him. What’s even better is that he only pays for the things he likes and decides to keep.

Some Unexpected Pictures

If you really want to give him a shock, plan to get some boudoir shots of yourself taken. Whether you use a professional skilled in setting up sensual photo sessions or you choose to have your best friend snap the shots for you, you’re always going to remember the look on his face when he opens his present. Have a sip of some bubbly if you need to loosen yourself up before the photoshoot and take it seriously—that’s how you’ll get the best results.

Outfit His Office

If your guy lives the professional life and works in an office, give him items that will help him get through those long work days. Grab some modern art from a company like that will impress any visiting clients he receives. Consider giving him a refined plant, like a Bonsai Tree, that will add some much needed life to his work space, and purchase a fun table game like mini pinball that will help him pass some of the boring hours and refresh his mind.  

If you’re on the hunt for great gift ideas for your guy, try out one of these options. He’s sure to love whatever you find as long as you put some thought behind it, and your Valentine’s Day will go off without a hitch.
