Ah, Valentine’s Day. The holiday that celebrates all things love…by producing copious amounts of insecurity, stress, and anxiety. Many of us are less worried about what he will get us than we are about what to get HIM.
The commercials are filled with images of jewelry, chocolates, and flowers. Unless your man is one of the Sopranos, jewelry may not be first on his list of desires. Chocolates? Probably not. Flowers? Definitely not. So, what you get for the man in your life?
Relax and get ready to hit “save.”
The Gents Place
The Gents Place is an ultra-premium and membership-based men's grooming and lifestyle club. The combination barbershop, spa, and salon offers services including haircuts, coloring, shaves, hand and foot repairs, and shoe shine services. The franchise offers more than grooming services. All services at The Gents Place are designed to instill confidence, relaxation, and polish to your man.
This gift accomplishes a couple of objectives. First, it provides your man with the haircut or grooming service he needs. For many businessmen, haircuts and other grooming are simply tasks on the to-do list that take up time that could be better spent on other things. The Gents Place turns that chore into a luxury experience that he will genuinely enjoy.
Second, services at The Gents Place are designed to refuel and rejuvenate clients by empowering them to succeed. If your recipient has been feeling burned out, discouraged, or bored with his career, a visit to The Gents Place may be just what the doctor ordered to renew his ambition and motivation. By delivering premium grooming services in a supportive atmosphere with complimentary top-shelf beverages and curated advice, The Gents Place experience will help your man feel his best again. And you’ll love the way he looks!
Subscription boxes have risen in popularity due to less to the products that come in their boxes and more from a quality you can’t box: surprise. While any gift can be a surprise, it takes a fair amount of time to collect multiple items that will surprise and delight your recipient. Subscription boxes solve that problem, and Bespoke Post is one of the best.
Nicknamed “The Box of Awesome” and designed for people of discerning tastes and an appreciation for luxury, a Bespoke Post subscription is sure to be a hit. Each month, subscribers choose a themed box filled with unique items for their lifestyle, hobbies, interests, and more. It’s an exciting way to check out new products and the subscription is flexible, allowing subscribers to skip a month if they choose. Bespoke Post boxes are designed to improve the way you live your life and their selections assemble theme-oriented boxes of fun. The average value of boxes is more than $70, but Bespoke Post members pay $45 per box (shipping and handling included). Non-members pay $55, but it’s free to sign up, so why pass on the discount?
Many of us enjoy refreshment of the adult beverage variety. If your man enjoys a cocktail, then Spirited Gifts offer a fun option for Valentine’s Day. Their curated choices range from champagne gift sets, engraved bottles, whiskey gift sets, bourbon and cigar pairings, and more! Presented beautifully packaged, your man will appreciate the thought and care that went into selecting his items.
For a really romantic touch, consider personalizing a bottle. Choose a Stemmari Cabernet Sauvignon, Franciscan Cabernet Sauvignon, or a Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon to send to your love, then submit a photo you as a couple along with your names. The Spirited Gifts team will use these to customize your gift. Not a wine aficionado? Choose a Moscow Mule gift set or a Bourbon and Cigars gift set, just to name two! The combinations available on the Spirited Gifts website are nearly endless, so you’re sure to find an option that will suit your recipient perfectly!

Is your guy an outdoorsman of any kind? In 1961, Dick Cabela decided to sell fishing flies he purchased while at a furniture show in Chicago. Today, Cabela's is the world's foremost outfitter of hunting, fishing, and outdoor gear.
Cabela's is often associated primarily with hunting gear, but the store offers you a wide variety of great gift options for his Valentine's Day gift. For the shooter, gear like protective earmuffs, gun-cleaning kits, gun cases, and holsters, or reloading equipment such as rotary tumblers, powder dispensers and more will be a welcome present. Rods, reels, lures, flies, and bait present nearly unlimited options for the man who loves to fish. Camping equipment galore is available to make a comfortable temporary home in the outdoors. If your recipient is "king of the grill" or you would like him to be, there is a great selection of grills, food dehydrators, meat grinders, vacuum sealers and other high-quality kitchen gadgets to consider.
He's not a big outdoorsman, but likes the "hunting-lodge-esque" style? You can give his "man cave" a look and feel he will enjoy with classy and comfortable home decor that you'll also love. Delicious fudge and candied pecans are often sold in the gourmet foods shop next to the home decor department, so you can pick up a treat for him - and for yourself. Can't decide? Gift cards are available in the stores, online, and at various retailers everywhere.
While many men’s Valentine’s Day gifts focus on practicality, you may want to mix things up and try something besides another tie, charging station, or beard grooming kit. You man will likely be happy with anything you get him, but to really delight him, finding something unexpected shows him that you put some thought and time into making him feel special. Which is what Valentine’s Day is all about.
