Posted on by

Let’s face it – it’s hard to get a gift for guys that ventures beyond ties or wallets! These gift ideas are sure to win over your “hard to shop for” husband or boyfriend this Valentine’s Day. Show your love with one of these fail-safe gifts we know he’ll love.

YES! guys like the sweet stuff as much as we do, but you don’t have to give him the cliche heart-box. Mix it up, and go for a box of these Liquor-Filled Truffles from Harry & David instead! Of course, they have other yummy boxes available.


Today’s version of a mixed tape! Give your man a iPod for V-Day complete with a few of your favorite songs. He’ll love the sentiment and the functionality. Target is a great place to grab an iPod Touch, Nano, or Shuffle. Prices start at $49.99 and you can get an instant 5% savings with your RedCard.


Home of the best themed gift boxes for guys! These boxes are curated for time-tested, small-batch, or otherwise remarkable gear. Snag him a subscription or get him a one-time gift box full of what he loves – from car detailing kits for the car enthusiast to a fully-loaded duffle bag for the athlete. Lots to choose from!


  • Sports Tickets

Show your love by spending some time with him doing what he loves. Better still, score him some tickets to see his favorite team! If his sport is in an off-season right now, you can stick with this theme and get him fan gear.


It might seem like a more feminine gift, but, trust me, he’ll look past the packaging, see the intent, and love it. Bonus – you’ll probably get some use out of this gift yourself! Set the timer and enjoy some time with each other. The Body Shop has some great choices.


  • Car Detail

Chances are your guy spends hours a day in his car. Why not make that time more enjoyable with a car detail package. Just swing by your local car-detailing place and grab a gift card for the a wash and detail, and put it in a gift bag along with some other fun car goodies like driving gloves, a steering wheel cover, and some air freshener. Since it usually takes a couple hours or more to get the detail done, make sure and include date plans for the movies or a day out to occupy that time.


  • Lingerie

Lingerie can be misleading. Of course, the lingerie is clearly for you, but the intent is for him. Let’s face it: getting lingerie from a guy is stressful- wrong size and wrong fit could make a gift turn into a nightmare scenario. However, as a gift from you, it’s awesome. You get to pick out the one that best fits your body and shows off your assets, and wow him on the big night. It’ll be a gift he’s sure to remember.


  • Wine or Beer Tasting

Give a gift of decadent proportions with a winery tour or beer tasting. Doing a simple search on I found simple one hour walking tours that included wine tasting along with gourmet food pairings to tours of breweries that included 4-course dinners paired with craft beers. Wine tours get even more elaborate with weekend romantic getaways.


If you just don’t have the budget for a beer or wine-tasting event, you can still express the sentiment with some nice monogrammed cups like these from Carson’s. Pair a set with his favorite craft beers or liquor, and you have a great gift!


For those of you with geek husbands like mine, they’ll appreciate a gift that speaks to their fandom. Check out these I Love You, I Know cufflinks from ThinkGeek as a great gift idea that transports them straight to their boyhood crush on Princess Leia.
