I find it so difficult to shop for guys sometimes. I never know what they want or need or if what I’m picking is too girly. Especially for Valentine’s Day, it can be tough to pick the exact right gift. However, there are some great options out there – and they don’t have to be the stereotypical generic “guy gifts”. Here are some V-Day gifts for guys that are a bit more out of the box:
I know it is the dead of winter, but I think a great gift is some summer gear to get the countdown started to warmer weather! Since stores are starting to put out all of their new summer items (such a tease, I know!), why not take advantage of it? A new swimsuit paired with a cool t-shirt and maybe some sunglasses are a great way to get your guy excited to spend a a fun summer together…even if it’s not for a little while. I love the Vilebrequin swimsuits for any preppy guy.
Getting a guy a nice pair of new shoes is a great gift that they will definitely get use out of. Depending on your guys style…there are so many great options out there. I love Cole Haan and Clarks as great looks for men. Or, if you want to do something comfy for the winter, fur-lined Sperry’s are a great choice!
Scratch off tickets – while this is a bit generic, this is the perfect gift if you don’t want to spend a ton but want to give something cute. Also,they’re fun to do – with the potential for your guy to win some extra cash! Try making a cute lottery ticket tree with these for a fun presentation.
If your man travels often, you can definitely get him a useful gift that he can use on the go. Coach has a ton of sleek and clean options from travel bags to dopp kits to luggage tags.
Something practical is always a great gift idea. Anything from a new wallet to a nice iPad case are the perfect idea that you will see your guy using over and over. Mark & Graham has tons of great ideas that you can’t go wrong with. Plus, adding a monogram is always a good idea for a personal touch.
