Valentine’s Day can be tricky, to say the least. What you gift your guy for Valentine’s Day very much depends on the stage of your relationship. You probably don’t want to blow a wad of cash if you just became official. On the other hand, if you’re in a long-term, committed relationship, it makes sense to go with something thoughtful yet practical.
To help you nail it this Valentine’s Day, we’ve put together a list of 10 gifts at all price points. Whether your dude enjoys throwing back fine spirits or venturing off-road, we’ve found something you’ll be excited to give him.
Without further ado, here are the gifts that’ll make you one badass girlfriend.
GG EDC Kit, $75
He’ll never be caught off guard outdoors with Bespoke Post’s GG Kit (the “GG” stands for grab-and-go). The kit includes:
- Kershaw Chive Knife with a double locking system and SpeedSafe release for quick opening and closing
- S-Biner for securing keys and gear
- Valmed Hudsalve Balm, formulated 50 years ago by the Swedish army to heal dry patches of skin in any climate or temperature

INR X ARBOR PANNIER Skateboard, $299
Looking to spoil him? Iron and Resin has partnered with Arbor Collective, an eco-minded skateboard shop in Venice, to create this limited run of sustainably sourced skateboards.
Reclaimed California Walnut top and bottom sheets surround maple center plies. The clear spray-on grip is made from crushed recycled glass, minimizing the skateboard’s environmental impact even further. With a hand-dipped, color block design, he’ll no doubt receive envious looks.
Stanley Shot Glasses + Carrying Case, $20
If he enjoys spending his free time roughing it outdoors with a couple of his buddies, the Stanley shot glass set will hit the spot. A hammertone green steel carrying case houses four stainless steel shot glasses. The set is also great for tailgating or backyard parties.

Who doesn’t like to kick back with a fine spirit in hand? Hudson Baby Bourbon is a 100% corn bourbon from Tuthilltown in Hudson, New York. Conditioned in charred American Oak barrels, this bourbon has a sweet corn and marzipan flavor. Pour it into our Zeus Old Fashioned Whiskey Glass for a boozy pick-me-up.
Shwood Sunglasses in Canby, $149
The Canby is Shwood’s flagship model. Classic wayfarer styling grounded in birch core construction with a walnut finish make this pair of sunglasses a classic for any face shape. Polarized lenses by Carl Zeiss ensure his eyes stay protected while he’s out surfing, camping, or riding.
Groves Dopp Kit in Tobacco, $160
If your guy takes good care of his beard and skin, he’s bound to have a few grooming products lying around – and perhaps cluttering your bathroom space. Wrangle them in with the Groves Dopp Kit in Tobacco. A timeless design made from full grain leather, this dopp kit will develop a handsome patina with age. The Groves Dopp Kit is also helpful for travel: he can easily toss in his grooming gear and hit the road.
