14 Creative Valentine’s Day Gifts: For Him

From DC-inspired wall art to a luxurious shaving brush, there’s something for every type of guy.

Yesterday we brought you part one of our Valentine’s Day gift guide, dedicated to tracking down creative items for the girls in your lives. Today we offer the flip side. While it can be tricky to shop for guys, with a little digging, you’ll find there’s so much out there beyond ties and cufflinks. We’ve compiled 14 of our favorites for your male valentine, from the athlete to the music lover to the frequent traveler.

  • These are great ideas, just what I needed for my hard to buy for hubby! Thank you!

    I'm an artist based in Boston, MA. I create "Mapuccino's", poster-sized digital prints that at first glance resemble subway maps. But if you look closely, the stops are personalized to capture different moments in your life. They're pretty popular for couples since both genders seem to appreciate them. If you're interested, you can find out more about them here: They're a one-of-a-kind romantic gift!

  • As long as you keep these pointers in mind, you should be able to get some good gourmet gift baskets. Just make sure you order from a company that is well-known for its excellent customer service.

  • Gourmet gift baskets are ideal for any occasion: birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, graduations, etc. They are filled with goodies such as chocolate and fruit. The baskets themselves can have a nice design.

    I’m definitely digging the Nike kicks for me, but I do think that my boyfriend would like a pair too. So far, I got him a Sling Adapter from my job at DISH because it works with the DISH Remote Access app, which he’ll be able to use on all of his business trips. It’ll work on his Smartphone or tablet so that he can stream live TV and his DVR recordings wherever there’s Wi-Fi or mobile 3G network. He’s always complaining that all the traveling he does for work causes him to miss his games, and this way that problem will be no more.
