Valentine's Day gifts for your guy
The dude: Bathrobes
Bing Shopping | Bathrobes
Appeal to your man’s softer side with something that will keep him warm when he’s not snuggling you. The fuzzy bathrobe is a classic loungewear (or snoozewear) item for guys, especially when woven from flannel, fleece, terry cloth or waffle-weave, and emblazoned with traditional patterns like tartan and plaid.
The dude: Massage kits
Bing Shopping | Massage kits
When you want to get a little more "hands on" with your Valentine’s Day gift, offer your personal services as a massage therapist. No man, no matter how macho, will turn down the offer. Massage oils and lotions in brisk, masculine scents like eucalyptus, peppermint, musk and tea tree will soften up that tough guy.
The dude: Shaving kits
Bing Shopping | Shaving kits
Whether your favorite dude is clean-shaven, bearded, goateed, or sports stubble or a soul patch, he’s going to need a little follicular management. For his everyday grooming routine, consider quality kits from Jack Black, Anthony Logistics, Ed Hardy, Diesel and other famous names.
The dude: Retro candy gift boxes
Bing Shopping | Retro candy gift boxes
Blow his mind with a gift that brings back some very sweet memories. Treats he thought were gone forever (and that’ll remind him of his first sugary crush) return in collections that bring together the coolest (and now rarely seen) candies from the ’40s through the ’90s.
The dude: Couples photo frames
Bing Shopping | Couples photo frames
Get yourself into the act with a gift of a couples-centric photo frame. Most can be personalized with your names, anniversary date or other meaningful messages. If he’s not the sentimental type, an elegantly minimalist duo frame will do – and with side-by-side photos of you and your beau it’ll still get the message across.
The gent: Silk pajamas
Bing Shopping | Silk pajamas
Silk pajamas are a sexy and totally indulgent present, and a perfectly appropriate gift for Valentine’s Day. Choose black or other darker colors (green, blue, brown). You'll like the way he feels in these just as much as he does, and if you get him a pair in washable silk, so much the easier.
The gent: Locket cufflinks
Bing Shopping | Locket cufflinks
Tuck a couple of photos into a pair of these clever cufflinks and stay (at least symbolically) super-close to his pulse points. Tiny lockets of stainless steel or silver hold small images, a wisp of your hair or anything else you can think of as a talisman of your mutual tenderness.
The gent: Whiskey stones gift sets
Bing Shopping | Whiskey stones gift sets
Ice isn't so nice when it dilutes his favorite 15-year-old scotch. A cool gift for any fine liquor aficionado, this set of cubes is carved from odorless, flavorless stone and can be rinsed, stored in the freezer and reused when the spirit strikes. (Of course, their chilling skill can be used in non-alcoholic drinks, too.)
The gent: Kama Sutra kits
Bing Shopping | Kama Sutra kits
Make his downtime a little more intriguing with the very alluring gift of a sensual massage. Ideal for Valentine’s Day evening, or really any Friday night after a hectic workweek, the gold standard for all-in-one massage sets is a kit from Kama Sutra. (Note: This is definitely a gift for the both of you.)
The gent: Tungsten bracelets
Bing Shopping | Tungsten bracelets
Tungsten bracelets are a trendy yet tough way for a guy to sport a little bling. They’re more reasonably priced than similar designs in silver, and actually a lot tougher than that metal. Tungsten resists scratches and scuffs, retaining its luster through all the rough treatment a man can dish out.
