Just when you think you’ve got your man all figured out, Valentine’s Day comes along each year to remind you that you’ve got no clue what to buy him! Finding the perfect regalos for your cutie can be a chore, which is why we’ve rounded up some of the best Valentine’s Day gifts for guys this year! Let’s just hope his gift can live up to some of these.
For the Jock
That ratty old [insert the name of his favorite sports team's] hat he wears daily can get a classic upgrade from Gents Caps. Celebs like Zoe Saldana are fans of the brand, which means it’s secretly a gift for you too if you style it her way.
Gents, Various Styles, $48.50-$58.50, amazon.com and gentsco.com
For the Well-Groomed
The First Men’s Product Line from Dove. It has a musky/manly smell and would be awesome to stuff into a new gym bag for the workout-centric type who hates mushy gifts.
Dove Men+Care, Prices vary, amazon.com
For the Stylish Guy
This woven leather bracelet from Spanish designer Uno de 50 is versatile enough that he can wear it with everything from jeans and a tee to a blazer or a suit.
Uno de 50 Todos para uno, $89, Uno de 50 stores nationwide or unode50.com
For the Sommelier
If he likes a fine wine from Argentina or Chile, this Teroforma Issi Decanter and a bottle of Argento's delicious & affordable Reserva Malbec (from the Mendoza region of Argentina) will up the romance level of your night.
Issi Decanter, $110.00, teroforma.com; Argento Reserva Malbec, $9.99+, wine stores nationwide
For the Techie
The new Samsung Galaxy doesn't only take amazing digital photos with its 21x zoom, it has Android technology built, allowing you to play around with all the apps you could ever want to. With 4G technology you can upload on the road, and voice command technology built in makes snapping pics for Facebook, Instagram & Twitter a synch.
Samsung Galaxy Camera, prices vary, amazon.com
For the Jetsetter
Surprising him with a trip to your favorite Latin American destination is never a bad idea, even if you need to keep it semi-local. Whether it's a Cubano foodie weekend in Miami (stay at the recently opened The James Royal Palm on South Beach) or discovering the Inca Trail to Machu Pichu in Peru, you’ll need the right piece of luggage, and nothing is sexier (in a masculine way) than this Victorinox carry-on in red.
Victorinox Spectra Global Carry-On, $299.99 at amazon.com
For the Guy with a Sense of Humor
You wear your heart on your sleeve for him, so help him return the favor with this Valentine’s Day themed tie. A goofy guy will love taking you out on the town with this, all the while reminding his buddies it was created by rock legend Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead. Not so feminine looking now, is it?
Jerry Garcia "Thirsty 3" Tie, $22.80, kohls.com and Kohl’s stores nationwide
For the Guy’s Guy
Nothing says manly like a little 007; between the cars, action packed scenes, and yes, beautiful women, Skyfall’s February 12 release on Blu-Ray couldn’t be more aptly timed. The best part: If you haven’t seen the film, Javier Bardem’s performance as villain Silva is absolutely amazing!
Skyfall Blu-ray, $19.99 at Amazon.com; also available at media stores nationwide
