Valentine’s Day is fun, isn’t it? I used to not really care about Valentine’s Day when I was single, but these days with two kids, it’s something I really look forward to because we actually get a date night! The thing I dislike, is trying to find a gifts for my husband. It’s not that he is picky, it’s just that he doesn’t have a lot wants. I figure many women are in the same boat! So I’m compiling 20 Valentine’s Day gifts for him based on price range.

Most men are hard to buy for, I think. They always say they dont want anything, making gift-giving even harder. Some of these gifts, I have personally bought. Hence, why I’m recommending them. Amazon is a great source for gifts especially if you have Amazon Prime.

Types of Gifts

My husband is a huge sports fan, specifically a fan of his alma mater, Ohio State. (Somewhere there is a Wolverine crying) Sadly. it’s everybody’s go-to gift for him. He never says anything, but his lackluster expression every birthday and Christmas says everything when he opens another Ohio State T-shirt or pullover. Additionally, it isn’t his only interest and it shows me how little family and friends pay attention to his hobbies.

Something They Need

When considering a gift, think about what they need. Is there something they use, they don’t like buying for themselves? For example, my husband loves Under Amour socks, but hates clothes shopping. Maybe there is something they want – a splurge or guilty pleasure (pay attention when you go shopping). If they like something while you are milling around in the store, make note of it for the next holiday.

Something Fun

In addition, consider getting something that is just goofy and fun. I love doing that for Valentine’s Day. I often save big expensive gifts for birthdays and Christmas. Valentine’s Day is the only time you can get away with something silly as a gift.

For example, Etsy has great, unique, custom gifts for such thing. For instance, my husband loves Ron Swanson from the t.v. show Parks and Recreation. So, I got a funny “Ron Swanson’s Pyramid of Greatness” poster to hang in his office.

Something Sentimental

Valentine’s Day is a great opportunity to give something sentimental. For example, Artsy Voiceprint captures the sound wave of your voice on wood. It even has a special QR code you can scan and listen to!

A few years ago, I made a Love Book. These are so cute. You choose the title and cover. Second, you make the cartoon characters look like you. Then you choose all the pages and personalize them to tell your unique love story!

Something Old But Different

Lastly, consider a new take on an old interest. For example, my hubby is interested in woodworking. But instead of getting him another tool, I went on eBay and found vintage woodworking magazines from the 1950’s.

If you haven’t checked out Man Crates, you don’t know what you’re missing. They have a whole new take on the average gift basket. I mean, a salami bouquet? What man wouldn’t want that? They have a hot sauce sampler that looks like dynamite! The best part is that many of the man crates come in an actual wooden crate he’ll have to pry open! If they’re out of your budget you can always do what I did one year. I bought some old ammo cans on eBay and filled them up with man goodies!

Gifts Under $15

These are small gifts. Maybe a new charger to replace the frayed one or perhaps a micro screw driver set (those darn toys always seem to need them).

Gifts Under $25

These gifts are still inexpensive, but more than just a thought. My favorite options are some team themed glasses (Go Bucks!), portable bluetooth speakers, etc. Additionally, if your hubby is a reader, good books fall under this price range. Also, there are all kinds of grilling accessories (salt blocks, baskets, etc)

Gifts Under $50

The $50 range is really when options start to open up. There are several man crates around this price range. Does your husband love camping? Maybe a cast iron smoker box or cast iron dutch oven for the campfire. Additionally, you could consider a portable grill for tailgating.

Gifts Under $100

In this price range, think big ticket items. Tools, high-tech gadgets, tents. I actually got my husband a meat smoker for around $100 on sale.

I hope I’ve made Valentine’s Day gift-giving a little easier and that you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day with your honey. Make it special!

    These are great ideas that could be applied to anytime you need to get your boyfriend/husband a gift. I have finally learned to keep a list on my phone of things he mentions wanting in passing. When I need a gift idea, I can come up with something he wanted, that really surprises him.

  7. We don’t normally give each other Valentine’s Day gifts. However, several items on this list are making me rethink that decision!

  9. All great ideas! I’m not a picky man, and I’m pretty easy to read when it comes to getting me gifts (PC hardware, comics, horror, artwork, underground music, t-shirts. Done).

They’ve got some great stuff there AND I just found out how to add stuff from Etsy to my Amazon wishlist!
