Men can be extremely difficult to shop for, whether it’s a “they have everything they need” situation or just a “they never give me any ideas” type of thing. So we’ve taken the liberty of compiling some great gifts that any hubby, boyfriend, partner or otherwise important man in your life would be thrilled to receive. They can also, we think, serve as ideas for you, a man, to give to someone looking to buy you a gift. Stylish picks are always a great option, but so is cookware or adult toys that will rock the world of everyone involved. Whatever you’re giving to whomever this holiday, do it with lots of love, some flowers and this foolproof guide.

Shinesty

In partnership with Shinesty

Shinesty The Heartthrob Boxer

Think of these boxers as a gift for him and you. After all, he gets to lounge in premium ergonomic comfort, and you get the satisfaction of prompting the long overdue trashing of some ancient briefs. Plus, male lingerie is very much a thing.

Le Crustet

Le Crustet Signature Square Skillet Grill

Le Crustet is the gold standard for any home chef, and a handsome, multi-use griddle is the perfect selection for the man in your life. With a lifetime warrantee on the enameled cast iron, it’s virtually impossible for you to go wrong here.

The James Brand

the James Brand Redstone Knife

The Redstone Knife from The James Brand was one of our favorite products of 2021, and that hasn’t changed in the new year. Forgo the chocolates and give that outdoorsy guy something he’ll actually use.

Misfit Markets

Misfit Markets

Sending steaks is so last year — try a subscription to a produce service, like Misfit Markets, instead. The produce is quality (if not a little wacky), seasonal and makes a great V-day dinner.

Miansai

Jewelry for the fellas can be a nerve-racking choice, but Miansai’s made it easy on all of us with the selection of fine rings, chains and more. This delicate Cuban Link Ring manages the double whammy of gold: “I love you” and “I have good taste”.

Nipyata

Betty Buzz + Aviation Gin

Because what Valentine’s Day would be complete without a G and T?

Everlane

Everlane The Desert Boot

For the guy who somehow still only owns sneakers, the Desert Boot from Everlane is a subtle upgrade he’ll actually enjoy. He reaps the benefits of dressy suede kicks that still feel like a Jordan 1, and it’ll make date night that much more bearable.

Ella Paradis

Leo Tor 2 C Ring

If you want to spice things up in the bedroom (no boring Valentine’s Day sex, please), the Leo Tor 2 is the perfect present for letting loose with your partner. Dubbed one of the most sophisticated vibrating rings on the market, it enhances sensation and makes for a night you won’t forget — until the next time you use it.

Ergatta

Ergatta Rowing Machine

As we’ve already discussed, the Ergatta machine gamifies fitness, meaning it’s the perfect gift for the muscle daddy and the newbie fitness junkie alike.

Todd Snyder

Todd Snyder Italian Wool Cashmere Peacoat

He might have everything, but we bet he doesn’t have a cashmere peacoat. Sophisticated partner loading.

Best Buy

LG – 65″ Class C1 Series OLED 4K UHD Smart TV

We have questions — namely, who thought it would be a good idea to put Super Bowl Sunday on Valentine’s Day Weekend. Still, the proximity has its benefits; a brand new, crystal-clear OLED TV is the perfect early gift for an elevated game day experience.

US National Park Services

The USA National Park Pass

An outside-the-box gift is often the best one, and who wouldn’t want the chance to explore all 63 National Parks?

Sephora

Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille Eau de Parfume

Tom Ford’s Tobacco Vanille is intoxicating, with strong notes of creamy tonka bean and a woody spice scent that puts drug store colognes to shame.

Amazon

Apple AirPod Pros

There’s nothing wrong with giving him something he’ll actually use. An upgraded fit, instantaneous connection and hours upon hours of battery life make the AirPod Pros Apple’s best in-ears yet.

Fellow

Fellow Corvo Electric Kettle

Coffee is particular, but perhaps you can help with the set-up. Fellow makes beautifully crafted kettles, and the Corvo is especially sleek. It takes up minimal space, looks clean on any counter and makes the best cup of pour-over you’ve ever tasted.

Filson

Filson Medium Workshop Leather Field Bag

Filson makes bags that are virtually indestructible, just like your undying love. Right?

Meridian

Meridian The Trimmer

In case your fellow isn’t manscaping, the Meridian Trimmer is hands down the easiest way to tame unruly body hair. Begone, back hair tufts!

Huckberry

Greys The Outdoor Slipper Boot

It is February, after all. The Greys Outdoor Slipper Boot is a ingenious combination of a rubber camp sole and ultra-warm wool upper, though buyer beware: he’ll never want to take these off.

Best Buy

Sonos Five Wireless Smart Speaker

Whether you want to set the mood with some high-fidelity tunes or need something to “borrow” for your Galentine’s Day get-together, the Sonos Five one of the best wireless speakers money can buy. Three high-excursion woofers deliver deep bass, and Trueplay technology maximizes sound to fit the acoustics of any space.

PAX

PAX 3

The couple that blazes together stays together.

Grovemade

Grovemade Wood Cathcall

Nothing says “I love you” like lacquered wood.

Therabody

Therabody Recovery Air System

For your little ultra-marathoner, the Therabody recovery system is a foolproof way to speed up his recovery and secure more time together. Conversely, he’ll love these things so much that you get that much-needed alone time.

Black Tomato

Black Tomato Private Couples Vacations

A vacay for two? Don’t mind if you do!

Bespoke Post

Madison Bar Cart Essentials

Finally, some home decor you’ll both enjoy. The Madison Essentials from Bespoke Post complete any budding bartender’s collection.

Amazon

The End of Man: And the Rise of Women by Hanna Rosin

What’s more romantic than some required reading?
