Whether you’ve just started seeing someone, or you have been in a long-term relationship, Valentine’s Day is what you make of it. Some may argue that it is a Hallmark holiday, while others find it to be soaked in romance. Whichever team you happen to be on, we can all agree that thinking of a gift for your boyfriend is never easy. He’s going to get your candy, flowers, jewelry or something of the like, but what are you going to get him? Lingerie is always a good option, but then that’s really a gift for you as well.
Lucky for you, we have partnered with Huckberry to bring you the best in men’s gifts. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the lifestyle brand, Huckberry consists of a team of writers and designers who love to get outside and experience life. Whether it is a weekend adventure to the mountains, or a hiatus to the beach, the Huckberry team works to bring that adventure to you.
One trip to the Huckberry site will leave you wanting to empty your wallets, book a trip to Colorado and take artsy pics for your Instagram. While I can’t help with your FOMO, I can help by bringing you some of our top picks for your beau this Valentine’s Day:
I love the classic shape and style of these sunnies. The tortoise shell never goes out of style! If your man enjoys driving with the windows down or racing down the slopes, make sure he looks his best while he’s at it. Fingers crossed this will inspire him to retire the plastic, neon sunglasses from Spring Break 2013.
If you haven’t already seen and drooled over these, then shame on you. The mule mug might be the best way to serve a cold drink! The copper helps to enhance the flavor of your drink while keeping it exceptionally cold. A pair of these look great on a bar top and even better with the perfect drink inside of them. Why not treat your man to a set and mix him up something special?
We an all agree that seeing your boo’s ratty socks around the house isn’t exactly cute. Solution: get him a pair of these comfy (but manly) slippers. One of the amazing things about these slippers is that they mold to the shape of his foot, so he might very well end up wearing them far more often than you anticipated. We can’t blame him though; they are made of 100% pure wool with a calfskin sole. Not to mention, the wool is moisture wicking, so they’ll keep your man’s feet warm without any discomfort.
I am a firm believer that every man should have at least one timepiece that he can wear for everyday functionality and style. Thank goodness I stumbled upon the Weekender! Not every guy wants a flashy silver watch, which is why this attractive, yet casual, piece works so perfectly. Regardless of your man’s style, this handcrafted watch is impressive to say the least. The attention to detail and the perfectly selected leather make it a conversation starter and a piece he’ll wear for years to come – though he might still be late picking you up, sorry.
For the man who enjoys his spirits and a challenge, the Gin Kit is the ideal gift. Why not have fun together and make your own gin to enjoy in your cocktails? Take a simple bottle of vodka and turn date night into a mini distillery.
Moral of the story, Valentine’s Day is about both of you. While your man may spoil you with goodies, don’t forget that showing him that you care and were thinking of him can go a long way. Skip the generic card and try something new this year!
