Valentine’s Day Gifts for Him

Dave and I decided to forgo Valentine’s Day gifts this year, since that cash is better off in a savings account for our trip to Europe. (And, to be honest, I’m really looking forward to our low-key evening of beer, video games, and a heart-shaped pizza.) If you’re still looking for the perfect gift for your sweetie, here are a few ideas that Dave would approve of:

  1. A handsome wool-blend sweater
  2. A versatile everyday watch with a selection of nato straps (I like this all-American version)
  3. Bourbon
  4. A rugged laptop bag that doubles as his day bag on trips (This might be selfish. I hate nothing more than having to carry everything when we’re sightseeing!) 
  5. The Complete Beer Course
  6. An apothecary shaving mug (which would look chic on your vanity filled with lipsticks)
  7. Luxe shaving supplies from Mercer + James (I just discovered this great online shop. Take 30% off your purchase through the end of February with the code BAUBLES30.)
  8. City map glasses with one of your favorite destinations
  9. A denim dopp kit
  10. Sphere ice cube molds (I gave a set to Dave for Christmas. Love ‘em.)
  11. A new pair of sunglasses
  12. The best bottle opener on the go
  13. A pair of heart and arrow boxer shorts

Valentine’s Day is a fun excuse to go over the top with loving gestures, eat as many mini cupcakes as possible, and wear red shoes. Dave surprised me with a Swarovski trinket box. It’s such a glamorous way to store delicate jewelry. I gave him this cordovan money clip wallet (without the logo) that’s handmade in Milwaukee and lobster-print boxers to match my pajama pants. Matching pjs is definitely a sign of true love.

After a lazy Sunday together, we decided to exchange Valentine gifts early instead of waiting another two days. We celebrated again last night with little indulgences: a bottle of champagne, dinner at my guilty-pleasure restaurant, a sit-com lineup and conversation hearts. 

{ Sartorial Summary: Sweater - J.Crew; Skirt - Old Navy; Earrings - J.Crew; Shoes - Kate Spade }

I hope you have a sweet Valentine’s Day!
