Updated February 7, 2024

Valentine's Day 2024 is just around the corner, and the quest for the perfect gift is on. While chocolates and flowers are classic, why not surprise the special man in your life with something truly unique and tailored to his interests? I have spent the last 30(something) years discovering a variety of hobbies that also happen to have renewed popularity in recent years, from disc golf to D&D, along with more universally-enjoyed interests, from kitchen mastery to puzzles. I also write about shopping, so I’m up to date on stuff that’s becoming popular. Drawing on all of this experience, I've curated a list of the best and most niche Valentine's Day gifts for men, covering a spectrum of categories from the nerdy and tech-savvy to the practical and outdoor enthusiast. Whether he's into practical and cutting-edge gadgets, seeking the challenge of hiking and the outdoors, or has a penchant for the unconventional, this gift guide has you covered.

What to consider when choosing Valentine's Day Gift for Him

The secret to giving a good gift (whether for Valentine’s Day or another occasion) isn’t about spending the most, it’s about finding something that reflects the recipient’s personality, interests, and your overall relationship. Of course, that’s easy to say, but not always easy to accomplish. Here are a few tips for choosing the best gifts for men:

Listen for clues

One of the best ways to get ideas for a Valentine's Day gift is by listening to your significant other. Often a statement like “I wish I had a better way to store my gaming gear,” can easily be dismissed. But this is a great opportunity to surprise the special person in your life with something thoughtful and practical.

Gather information (subtly)

In the same way that you may notice your partner may be missing that perfect item for their niche or hobby, you can also pick up on something they may want that they wouldn’t normally purchase for themselves. Put out some feelers that seem innocuous like “Oh wow, this Lego set is pretty awesome! What do you think?”

Factor in your budget and/or price limit

Determining the amount you’ll both be spending on Valentine’s Day gifts can be tricky but there are few ways to make this easier. For example, you can take into account how new the relationship is. A first Valentine’s Day may be something special but doesn’t necessarily require a high budget. If this is the first Valentine’s Day as a married couple, you may want to splurge on a bigger surprise. It’s always helpful to discuss in advance and set a range, so nobody feels that they over or under spent. Another great tip is to buy “together” gifts in addition to the personal gifts like a board game you can enjoy with one another or a kitchen tool that is perfect for a date night at home cooking dinner together.

Remember the timeline

Consider your shopping habits and make sure that you order before the shipping deadline. If you are cutting it close with shipping, you’ll find that many online retailers with brick and mortar stores will offer in-store pickup same day or at least within a day or two. The last thing you’ll want to be doing is printing pictures of the item and using grocery store flowers and chocolates as a placeholder.

Concert or sporting event tickets

Whether they’ve been wanting to catch Blink-182’s (second) reunion tour or opening day for their favorite MLB team, gift them an unforgettable experience. Ticketmaster, StubHub, and SeatGeek pretty much cover a wide range of events, venues and price points.

SPAfinder (Gift Cards)

As a hobbyist, guitar player, disc golfer, and home chef, I always find my hands getting worn easy. And working at a desk or a physically demanding job alike can do a number on the neck and shoulders over time. Nothing says “I love you” like a full day of pampering, whatever that means to your guy. Added bonus of being able to get a digital gift card so you can land the perfect gift on the day of Valentine’s Day if needed.

PlayStation Store $25 Digital Gift Card

If you have a gamer who talks about so many different games all the time you wonder if some of them are made up. One thing that many games have in common is DLC (downloadable content) like new maps, characters, skins, and entire expansions. You can surprise them with something more personal than a standard gift card with a PlayStation Store digital gift card, available instantly. You can even print the receipt and tape it to his new controller and headset mount!

If you’re looking for a gift card option that can be used towards some men’s fashion, but can’t quite figure out his style, Stitch Fix is a great solution. My favorite part is that it helps take the guesswork out for both of you. Stitch Fix has a “style quiz” to help find the fashion that best fits your personality and personal style. With the added luxury of being able to return what he doesn’t like at no cost.

AeroGarden - Sprout

One of my biggest pet peeves in the kitchen is throwing out fresh herbs when I forget to use them, and not having them when a recipe calls for herbs. The AeroGarden Sprout is an excellent entry level in-home herb grower that works 5 times faster than soil alone. It’s nearly fully-automated aside from adding water to the reservoir, and the herbs live much longer!

How we selected the best Valentine's Day Gifts for Him

When rounding up the best gifts for Valentine’s Day, I considered some of the most popular (along with the most niche) interests first. (Since the best gifts reflect a recipient’s interests.) From there, I looked for the top-selling and most unique products for each interest, then consulted reviews to make sure they were actually good deals. Finally, I considered the ease of ordering—a lot of picks come from Amazon, which will arrive quickly in time for Valentine’s Day.

Frequently asked questions

When is Valentine's Day 2024?

Valentines Day takes place every year on February 14th, this year it falls on a Wednesday which leaves a whole weekend of Valentine’s Day fun.

What do you give a guy on Valentine's Day?

This question really depends on a few factors. Some things to keep in mind are: how long has the relationship been going, what are his niche interests, and what is meaningful to you as a couple.

Should I get my boyfriend something for Valentine's Day?

Great question to consider. If you are in a new relationship and this is one of the first Valentine’s Days you are sharing together, it may be helpful to open a dialog and set expectations. Maybe a date night out and a small gift is enough, or you may be cooking and home and exchanging higher budget items instead.

Which gift is best for the husband on Valentine's Day?

Like all gift giving opportunities, communication is key. However, some rules tend to be universal. The first Valentine’s Day as a married couple is often a milestone for couples and the gift matches. Good gifts for a husband can also be lower in monetary value but more special and meaningful like something that is important to you as a couple or a slightly more expensive gift that fulfills your husband’s niche interests.

How do I make him feel special on Valentine's Day?

Exchanging gifts can feel like a weird social interaction on Valentine’s Day rather than something romantic and special. Some ideas to make gift giving more unique and thoughtful are creating a scavenger hunt with fun riddles and clues that are about milestones in your relationship, and maybe even a puzzle box or cryptex. Or even the classic trail of roses leading to a box of sweets and a gift bag.
