Valentine's Day Gift Ideas for Men 2020

10 Valentine’s Gift Ideas for Men

(plus a bonus!)

Hi everyone, Ryan here! Let’s talk about Valentine’s Day gifts. The list below introduces some of my favorite brands and items currently. You will probably notice that they skew toward the style side of things (with a couple of exceptions). There are lots of items that can be enjoyed in the home or away, or at the very least improve the at home experience. Almost everything on this list is something I already own and enjoy. For the things that I don’t (wink, wink, Ashley!), they are part of my personal wishlist.

As you search out the right gift for your guy, don’t forget about past gift guides: 2018 Holiday Guide, 2019 Holiday Guide, 2019 Valentine’s guide.

Todd Snyder Full Zip Polartec Jacket

One menswear brand that has absolutely jumped to the top of my list recently is Todd Snyder (another TS idea below). They are frequently called out from GQ to Esquire and it’s easy to see why. Everything is incredibly well made and stylish. This Polartec fleece is one article I bought recently and I have zero regrets. It’s a great casual piece that can be your main coat or layered underneath something heavier. It’s cool, it’s classic. I went for a size medium and it fits perfectly. Seriously consider it, especially after the discount!

Moccasin Slippers

I have an identical pair of these moccasin slippers that I wear on the daily. They’re what I wear at the family cabin up North by the fire and every morning when I shuffle out to make the coffee. A must for any guy. There are other colors, but I really love the blue.

Ralph’s Coffee Mug

One visit to Ralph’s Coffee on Madison Avenue in NYC and you’ll know why I love this mug so much. It’s like stepping into another world. We go multiple times every time we are in the city, and Ashley bought me this mug and surprised me with it when we got home one year. I’ve always had a fascination with Ralph Lauren, the man and the brand, which makes this cup even more special. It’s just a solid coffee mug, loaded with all the charm and style of the brand itself.

Coffee Table Book

I own all the Ralph Lauren biographies and coffee table books – except this one. After spotting it and flipping through recently at a bookstore, I’ve been kicking myself for not buying it ever since. An ode to one of the most inspiring fashion icons of the last century, this book is an incredible collection of photos of the man himself.

Timex x Todd Snyder

Bear with me, we’re not done with Todd Snyder yet. One thing TS is known for is epic collaborations with other brands. TX x Timex is one of them and this watch is definitely on my list. It’s 40% off the price below, so now is the time to snag it. There’s also a brown band version, but I’m really into the black band and face combination. It’s sharp and would go with pretty much anything.

Filson Front Pocket Wallet

If there was one more brand (besides Todd Snyder) I’d say every guy needs to be clued into, it’s Filson. An all-American brand with refined outdoor/rugged style. Actually I own a brief case from Filson that might just be the most well made thing I own. Next up, this front pocket wallet. If he hasn’t ditched the bulky back pocket wallet situation, now’s the time!

shop $75

Norlan Whisky Glass Set of 2

It’s funny, I bought these glasses for a couple different friends this year at Christmas, but didn’t actually buy them for myself.  But I did a ton of research into whiskey glasses, so they are still on my list! They enhance the whiskey drinking experience by reducing ethanol and improving aromatics (apparently things whiskey or scotch nerds really care about!). A must for any guy’s bar cart.

Shop $48

Lululemon Joggers

Ahh, Lululemon. I wasn’t exactly sure the store was for me until very recently when I splurged on a pair of their ABC Joggers (olive green, size M). I now understand the appeal of athleisure. These pants are incredibly comfortable and perfect for around the house or around town. If you’re interested in ones for actually working out, the next pair to buy is the Surge joggers which also look amazing.

shop $118

Double Stripe Sweat Shirt

Last but not least with my Todd Snyder infatuation, this double striped sweater. It’s a TS x Champion collaboration. The striped sleeves are a great style accent over plain gray. I would wear it every day if I could! It’s also 40% off the price below and I highly recommend.

12-Volt JobMax Multi-Tool

This is one thing I own and find unlimited uses for when fixing things around the house. It does everything from sanding, to grinding, to cutting. It’s a one stop shop and an essential tool for anyone’s work bench. I can’t imagine any guy being upset about getting one of these!

Treager Smoker

If you’ve been around this blog at all over the last year, chances are you’ve seen the Traeger Smoker. If you’re going big this year for Valentine’s Day, this is a great choice. Smoking doesn’t have to be complicated, and this makes it really easy to enjoy some of the best food you’ve every had with minimal effort. You haven’t really lived until you’ve tasted mesquite smoked chicken or hickory smoked bbq ribs. It’s absolutely a gift that gives back!
