fail-proof valentine's day gift ideas

The anticipation of Valentine’s Day can get pretty stressful.

On top of searching for the perfect dress to wear for your Valentine’s Day plans (and the perfect shoes to go with it), you’ll constantly ask yourself questions like:

Did you buy the right gift?

Is it in the right size?

Does he already have it?

Will he even like it? 

In our eyes, a day dedicated to love shouldn’t put you in such a panicked state. That’s why we’re taking the stress out of Valentine’s Day by giving you fail-proof gift ideas to ease your active mind. If you’re stuck on what to give your special someone this year, check out our list of that won’t ever go wrong.



1. A leather wallet

Frye Logan Slim ID Wallet

A wallet is simply another accessory men rarely buy for themselves. Either the one he has is a decade old and falling apart, or he literally DIYed his own using duct tape. A sleek, high-quality leather wallet is a timeless gift he’ll always appreciate.

2. A voice assistant

We could all use a little help throughout our day-to-day. The voice assistant technology has come a long way and consumers are turning heads at Alexa. With the Echo Show, he can ask Alexa to play music, make phone calls, play video clips and control assets of his home.

3. March Madness fan gear

Duke Blue Devils Black Logo Circuit Performance Hoodie

March Madness is just around the corner! If he’s a college basketball fan, March is probably one of his favorite months. Give him some fan gear to rep his favorite team. The timing is perfect and he’ll be impressed you remembered.

4. Wireless headphones

               Bose SoundSport Wireless Headphones

The evolution of the iPhone has made wireless headphones all the more popular. Over time, we’ll cut the cord on our devices one by one and enter a totally wireless world. He’ll love the new wireless experience, and they’ll be super handy during his commute, at work, or while traveling. At the very least, he’ll never again face the embarrassment of walking away from his desk with his earbuds still plugged into his laptop (we’ve all been there).

5. Bacon-flavored chocolate 

Dylan's Candy Bar Special Edition Bacon Bar

Now here’s a gift for the truly devoted bacon-lover. If he’s a fan of the sweet and savory combo, he’ll love this delicious Valentine’s Day treat. Show your support for his bacon obsession with a sweet and salty snack on this candy-crazed holiday.

6. Concert or gameday tickets

Is there an upcoming performance by his favorite artist? What about a big game starring his favorite sports team? Either way, tickets to attend will leave him speechless and surprised. If a specific event doesn’t come to mind, opt for a gift card to a ticket site so he can spend it on a show of his preference.

7. A nice watch

Diesel Armbar Stainless Steel Strap Watch

Again, a watch isn’t an item he’d typically buy for himself unless he really really wanted one. If he doesn’t already own and wear a watch, it’s the perfect solution for showing your Valentine’s Day love. A quality watch is classic, timeless and always well-received.

8. His favorite cologne

Every guy has a signature scent, or atleast a go-to brand when they need one. For him, the worst part about running out of cologne is having to pay the price to restock it. Cologne can get pricey, especially if he’s wearing it everyday. The good news for you? A new bottle of his favorite cologne is a gift you already know he’ll love.

9. Comfortable loungewear

Nike Men's Sportswear Jogger Club Sweatpants

Men don’t shop for clothes nearly as often as women. But that doesn’t mean they don’t love soft, comfortable clothing to wear on a casual day. A pair of quality joggers to wear on a lazy day indoors or to brunch on a wintry Sunday could be the perfect gift for him this year.
