Get him the Valentine’s gift he secretly wants this year.

They might not be the most marketable demographic for Valentine’s Day, but men deserve a little something too on this day of love. We’re not talking the typical roses and chocolates (though if that’s his game…) we’re talking personalized items with thoughtful significance

That’s the way to win him over (and to guilt him for almost forgetting Valentine’s Day even existed). Almost.

How to choose the best Valentine’s Day gifts for your man.

A gift for your man doesn’t have to be stereotypically romantic. Something practical or related to what they’re interested in would be appreciated from even the most anti-Valentine’s Day man. You don’t have to go lavish (that’s his job for your gift), you just have to be simple, thoughtful and appreciative.

Our biggest tip? Don’t send flowers, chocolates or a massive teddy bear to his office. It’s probably not the most exciting gift for him, and it could cause embarrassment.

If you’re looking for a gift that he’ll love, look no further. Whether you want a gift that’s cute and personal or easy and inexpensive, we have ideas on the best gifts for any guy on any budget. Check out the suggestions below and think about what would be most likely to put a smile on your man’s face.

Cute and thoughtful Valentine’s gifts for him

If you don’t want to go the traditional route but you like to keep things sweet and romantic, these are the gifts for you.

The budget option

Purchase a new fuzzy blanket from Amazon or make your own knot blanket using fleece. He’ll think of you every time he uses it, especially if you include a cute and sexy note about how it’ll be there to keep him warm when you can’t.

Shop now

The midrange choice

Everything always seems more thoughtful when it’s personalized. So think about your man’s interests and buy him something custom made that’s related. My husband loves to travel, so I bought him an embossed leather passport holder with his initials, but if your guy is more into drinking, maybe you could get a flask engraved. Check out Etsy for hundreds of options.

Small gifts he’ll love

So you’ve talked and decided not to make a “big deal” out of V Day this year (even though you know he probably still will.) These gifts are small but mighty and perfect for your low key Valentine’s Day.

The budget option

The key to the small gift is to make it meaningful, so think about any inside jokes you have with your guy. Take something that always makes you two giggle and order a novelty key chain. Trust me, there’s one available for pretty much everything. Every time he feels it in his pocket or starts his car, he’ll smile and think of you.

Shop now

The midrange choice

Why not buy your man some new socks? If you’re exchanging small gifts to save money, he’ll appreciate you getting something he otherwise would’ve had to get himself. Plus his feet will stay warm.

Shop now

Let’s splurge!

If you’ve been relegated to the world of small gifts but really want to spend some money on your man, why not buy him a watch? It’s a classically romantic gift, after all. A brand like Seiko keeps things relatively inexpensive while still looking nice.

Get creative! Best unique gifts

The budget option

If you’re feeling bold, why not pick up a game to play on Valentine’s night: sexy truth or dare. Your man is sure to love the assertive mood and have a great time, so it’s a win-win.

Shop now

The midrange choice

Who says guys can’t cook? Most dudes I know are pretty great chefs given the opportunity. Unleash his inner culinary potential with this awesome breakfast cookbook. Maybe he’ll even fry up some eggs for you.

Let’s splurge!

If you really want to drop some cash on a unique gift, we’d suggest thinking about a gift that really suits your specific partner. Maybe your fisherman needs a fancy new tackle box (those things are more expensive than you’d think) or your artist needs a new set of pastels. I don’t know. Whoever your partner is, sometimes making a day for them and allowing them to pick out something they actually like is more valuable than a gift wrapped up. Getting to know each other better is definitely in the spirit of a day dedicated to love.

Inexpensive and free gifts

This section doesn’t have price brackets because all of its ideas are budget friendly. You don’t have to spend a lot to have a great Valentine’s Day. Why not dress up in your cutest lingerie and do your makeup? Your man will love the quality time with you.

You could also invite him over for dinner, or make him dinner if you live together. Cook all of his favorite foods as a way of showing him how much your relationship means to you.

If you want to do something more, try using iPhoto or Google Photo to create a digital slideshow of all your best memories together in the past year. This won’t cost a dime and your partner will feel loved and cherished.
