Valentine’s Day is usually one of those holidays that typically roll by me without a thought; however, after launching a new business with my husband this year, I’ve been thinking I need to show how much I appreciate him. Today I’ve rounded up some fun and thoughtful gift ideas for the men in our lives.

When contemplating a gift, I usually go for indulgent things that make everyday life easier or more fun. Most men I know are hesitant to buy things for themselves in the fashion arena, but I think a great new bag, shirt or tech accessory is always much appreciated.

Ok, so a spa day might be a stretch for some men, but I know my husband secretly loves new products. A few thoughtful details will make him feel like a dapper dude in no time.

My husband loves to spend his downtime playing video games — classic, current, or on his phone, it doesn’t matter. There are tons of fun gamer-inspired gift ideas that say, “I love you and your quirky ways.”

I know, I know: the minute someone says “gifts for men,” the first things on the list are alcohol and food. I wanted to stray from the normal bottle openers and flasks which fill our bar (without use) and go toward some less-traditional (but still fun) choices. A new sauce or a hobby kit — anything hands-on — is my go-to for this category.
Regardless of the man you buy for this Valentines day, think unique and useful and you’re sure to capture his heart (again)!
