Yes, the pressure of Valentine’s gift-giving typically falls on men. They’re the ones expected to come up with flowers, jewelry, or something equally special. Of course, you’ll want them to feel their effort is not just appreciated, but properly reciprocated. Here are some nice gifts the man in your life should enjoy receiving.
Yeti Rambler Mug
As unromantic as a mug may be, there’s not a single man who won’t appreciate the over-engineered glory that is Yeti’s Rambler line. Sure, it’s a mug, but it’s one cut in rugged 18/8 stainless steel in a Duracoat finish, with double-wall vacuum-insulated construction to keep his coffee hot for hours on end. That insulation, along with the 14oz size, makes it equally perfect for both his morning coffee and his evening nightcap, too, so this will be one gift every man is going to put to good use.

Kizara Wood Sheet Memo Pad
For the man who keeps a stash of pens and stationery on hand, a memo pad isn’t exactly the most exciting gift. Unless, of course, that memo pad is made by shaving thin sheets of paper from a single block of wood, so the original grain is still intact. It’s absolutely gorgeous and masculine at the same time. Seriously, when was the last time you can put those two adjectives together to describe a single thing?
Cocca Moka Espresso Pot
Is there a better way to make espresso than the classic moka pot? Probably not. For the man who appreciates a good cup of the pure stuff, this beautiful rendition of the Italian classic injects a dose of Memphis-inspired style, making it a nice break from the usual black-and-gray motifs that litter nearly everyone’s coffee-making stash.
Champion Reverse Weave Pullover Hoodie
If your man likes the classics, you can’t get more classic than a hoodie from the company that invented the hoodie. You get the outfit’s signature reverse weave fabric, which pairs a tough exterior with a soft brushed interior, along with a slightly dropped shoulder, adjustable drawstring hood, and rib-knit banding at the hem to ensure a comfortable fit. Comes in dozens of colors, too.

Organic Workshop Apron
We know plenty of men who cook. Few of them actually bothers to wear an apron (unless it’s a joke apron). Maybe, it’s time you made that kitchen wizard in your life use one. This apron’s particularly man-friendly, with its earthy color, tough canvas weave, and four large pockets, allowing him to carry a whole load of cooking gear around, from scissors and knives to tongs and ladles to everything in between.
There’s a reason the Seiko 5 has been a favorite among budget-conscious watch aficionados. From its classy good looks and contemporary 37mm size to the automatic mechanism, it’s a veritable steal for its price. The best part? It goes so well with every outfit that even guys who don’t normally appreciate watches are bound to love strapping this on.

Db The CIA
Yes, it looks like the kind of bag a spy will carry during an operation. You know, the place where he keeps the guns, gold, and gadgets he will need to survive a dicey situation on enemy ground. Your man will probably love it just for that alone. Throw in the fact that this is a structured camera bag with customizable dividers and you’ve got one of the most attractive backpacks for carrying sensitive gear.

Laguiole Le Fidele Knife
For the man who cares about style as much as he does about utility, this French-made pocket knife brings both in heavy doses. With a 3.6-inch stainless steel blade, it should breeze through most everyday cutting and slicing tasks, while detailed file work on the spine and handle give it a distinctive character that you just don’t find regularly in the category.
Leatherman Free P4
Every man loves a good multi-tool. With 21 tools, including two knives, two pliers, and four screwdrivers, this flagship model from the Free line brings unmatched utility, all while coming with Leatherman’s magnetic locking system that allows you to deploy any of the available tools with just one hand.
Mejuri Ribbed Cuff
Men like jewelry, too. Many of them just prefer theirs to be low-key and understated. That’s exactly what you get with this bracelet from Mejuri, with its rhodium-plated sterling silver construction and ribbed surface creating a rugged yet modestly refined aesthetic.
For the man who likes his craft beer, this mini-keg should provide a better container for every batch he orders, keeping his suds fresh and carbonated for weeks on end, while a double-wall insulation should keep it cold for extended periods. The integrated tap makes drawing beer a heck of a lot more fun, too, getting him the perfect pint each time out.
GilleteLabs Heated Razor
This special razor comes with blades that can heat up to give your man the sensations of a hot towel shave at the push of a button, while a moving disc at the blade base allows it to stay in contact with your skin at all times to ensure a close shave. Chances are, he’s never had a morning shave in the bathroom go this good, so you’re giving him something genuinely special.
Grovemade Leather Desk Pad
Upgrade his workspace with this beautiful desk cover, which combines premium vegetable-tanned American leather on top with natural cork at the bottom. This is the XL model, by the way, so it’s designed to take up majority of the desk surface, serving as plush skin to set down a monitor, laptop, and all the other peripherals a modern workspace requires. There are smaller, less-expensive sizes, too, in case this one’s a bit too big to your liking.
Missoni Home Rex Hooded Bathrobe
Most bathrobes are designed to keep you dry, comfortable, and reasonably warm. So is this one. Unlike them, however, this hooded robe’s cotton terry velour fabric with 3D chevron motif makes it look like a fancy robe fit for royalty. Seriously, it’s the bathrobe equivalent of those flamboyant professional wrestling robes people like Gorgeous George and Nature Boy draped around their bodies back in the day.
