I looked up this list of non cheesy Valentine’s Day gifts for him because … well, I hate Valentine’s Day. But I also love it. I love it because my husband tells me how much he loves me, and he gives me nice things. I hate it because I have nothing to give him — the best part of gifts is the giving, amirite? That’s why I composed this list of 20 gift ideas for him that don’t suck, all under about $40 … sorry, inflation is a real jerk … on Amazon.
Non Cheesy Valentine’s Day Gifts for Him
If you’d rather make your own, we have a roundup of DIY Valentine’s Day gifts for him.
The Hydro Flask brand is super hot right now, but trendy also = $$$. This awesome cup is both trendy and under $40.
My husband has a thing for watches. Last Christmas, I bought him the Mac-Daddy of watches, the Apple iWatch. For his birthday, I am buying him this watch band, to give it a timeless look. I think this is the best of the the Valentine’s Day gifts for your boyfriend or husband!
Okay, so this one might be for both of you, so you can take all those cuddle shots. Def the perfect Valentine’s gift.
No explanation needed here.
You can use this salt scrub pre-bath or in the bath. If you feel super loving, you can pair it with the massage oil (above) for an entire night of doting on your man.
This stuff is glycerin-free and paraben-free so it is suitable for sensitive skin, plus it’s water-based so it cleans easily.
My husband has a clean-shaven face, and I’m not into the beards. But, many guys love ’em, with women who also love ’em. For those of you who do, maybe he’d love a nice beard brush.
If you have a puppy dog together, and you like to go walking your puppy dog, then this is a great gift. We have a 26-ft retractable leash, and we love it. HINT: For those of you who are lazy (and I am very lazy), we let our dog do his business outside while holding the leash from the porch. Yes, the length is AWESOME for that. Especially those cooooold nights.
For the man who always loses his keys … or murse … or whatever … get him a 2-pack of bluetooth Tiles. My husband bought everyone in the family one of these babies for Christmas one year, and we all loved it.
I picked up this tip from my electrician neighbor: wire cutter scissors are the best thing since, well, scissors. They do literally everything. My neighbor was cleaning up his flowers with them.
Every couple should have a fun and flirty romantic game. This game would be good for a Valentine’s Day date.
For the active or veteran military guy, give them the gift of alcohol … or at least, being able to open it. Support our troops and make sure to get the officially licensed ones: Army | Navy | Air Force | Marine Corps | Coast Guard | Firefighters. You can also get one in any sports team.
Where have you been all my life? For your photobug sweetheart, give a cup of joe that mixes itself, in a cup that looks like a camera lens.
This totally terrific t-shirt (say that ten times together) will get you lots of attention. My husband regularly is stopped … by other dads telling more dad jokes to him.
For the man who likes to dapper up, get him these stainless steel, monogrammed ones. Comes in all the letters.
This bag is perfect for any guy who travels around, or even for men who like to go to the gym. It has a strap to hang the bag up, and it’s waterproof.
I really like this set because it hangs up in a convenient case when not in use.
For the man who loves his whiskey, buy him a nice glass and bottle set. My husband loves his whiskey, so this was a hubby great gift.
This really useful pen does bunches of stuff. It’s used for self-defense, a flashlight, a bottle-opener, and window-breaker. It actually writes, too.
A little bit more than $40, this compact and useful gift is for any man who loves his car, or for that matter, any man who likes to keep his car clean. I like that it has a long cord.
