Whether you’re showing a little love to your husband, son, brother, or bestie this Valentine’s Day, finding the right gift means honoring the fact that he’s his own kind of fella.

No matter who he is or what he’s into, there’s something just for him to discover on Etsy. Scroll on for super unique ideas from 20 standout shops that span everything from dapper duds to DIY embroidery kits—then be sure to place your order in time for a February 14 delivery.
