When the 14th of February rolls around, it’s hard to figure out what your man might like, amongst a sea of red, pink, and teddy bears. Make bae feel manly but appreciated with one of these thoughtful gifts that might earn you a “Best Girlfriend Ever” mug next year.
1. Beer Brewing Kit
Even if home-brewing wasn’t a previous interest for your man, we have a feeling this is going to be his latest addiction (better than video games or football blaring in the background!), and you might get some pretty tasty beer out of the deal as well. Next time he’s about to pick up some watered down Budweiser, he can experiment with this cool gear instead.
2. A Pair Of Noise-Cancelling Headphones
Does your man dread a noisy work commute that he tries to unsuccessfully block out with a pair of weak Apple earbuds? Then get him some powerful over the ear headphones that will deliver the much needed bass and noise-cancelling oasis that every rush hour seriously calls for.
3. Shaving Kit
This would be a cruel joke if your man can’t grow facial hair, but if he does rock that stubble or a full grown beard, this is an awesome idea. He can keep his skin and hair moisturized, smelling fresh, and looking sharp with the help of this trusty kit!
4. Mini Espresso Maker
Getting his favorite coffee beans is a kind of lame gift, so step it up and accompany those beans with this awesome portable espresso maker that’s operated via hand pump! We have a feeling you’re going to borrow this present on the weekends.
5. Stylish Printed Socks
A pair of high quality, trendy socks (cashmere is our favorite) dotted in his favorite pattern (polka dots or pepperoni pizza slices?). He can either secretly rock them under his dress pants at work, like he does with his Superman boxers, or wear them rolled up with bright socks for an on-trend look.
6. Aviator Shades
A pair of badass aviator sunglasses will have your dude feeling like Leo DiCaprio in no time. It doesn’t matter if your guy is into style – if he does, then bonus points, but when the summer rolls around, who doesn’t need a new pair of shades?
A guy’s scent is pretty personal, but if you know what he likes or usually uses, and surprise him with it, he’ll be just as excited as you would be if surprised by your favorite perfume. Does your man like a woodsier scent, or is he more of a bright citrus guy?
8. Power Tools
This is more impressive than a Home Depot gift card, but you might have to do some power tool research, unless you have your guy’s favorite drill brand memorized. If he’s always going DIY projects or renovating, go to your nearest Home Depot and ask for some guidance.
9. A Deluxe Hot Sauce Kit
These bottles are nifty to carry to sports games, restaurants, or if you’re traveling and want to add a little kick to some bland airplane food. Guys love their food, and sauce is the glue of all food, so this hot sauce collection might be the key to his heart.
