Whether he is your husband, fiancé, boyfriend or just friends, finding the perfect Valentine’s Day gift can be a bit of a challenge. From budget-friendly offerings to stylish splurges we’ve searched the web and Pro Flowers to find an array of cool, unique and clever Valentine’s Day gifts for the special man in your life.
The Best Valentine’s Day Gifts and Gift Sets for Your Man
For a year that was unlike any other, give him a special and thoughtful gift that’s unlike any other.
The first rule for 2021? To not talk about 2020. We’re kidding of course, but why not celebrate the bright possibilities of this new year with a stylish and cool new planner that lets him look to the future and reflects his personal tastes. Brands like Papier offer dozens of design styles from bold, gold-accented art deco items to polished and professional planners. Pair with a small plant and other elegant desk accessories to transform his WFH space from ho-hum to handsome.
Best Selling Plants
Accessorize and add life to any of his WFH spaces with a bit of greenery in the form of succulents, Bonsai or other easy to care for plants. ProFlower’s Tower Succulent Trio is a perfect complement for his desk, kitchen counter, bedroom or bathroom of any size. With a muted color combination of cream, gray and black it’s sure to match any style of home decor from modern to classic. Even better? These tiny, hearty plants are also extremely easy to care for. Succulents require very little water or sunlight so they are the perfect little green companion for apartments or areas in a house or dorm that receive little natural light.
You can also show him how lucky you feel to have him in your life with a Double Lucky Bamboo plant. Bamboo is believed to be an ancient symbol of prosperity and luck, so start 2021 off on a fortuitous foot with this modern and chic take on a classic tradition.
For another beautiful live plant gift, consider a Bonsai tree. Bonsais are an ancient Chinese tradition that was perfected further by the Japanese. The Bonsai tradition goes back over 1000 years and there are many varieties so that you can be sure to find the perfect one for his V-Day gift. Show him that your love is timeless with a traditional Juniper Bonsai or choose a more modernized blooming variety like the white flowering Abundance Gardenia Bonsai or pink Blooming Azalea Bonsai. No matter what Bonsai you choose it’s a sincere and thoughtful gift that you can rest assured he won’t already own.
Pair your small plant gift with a new novel he’s been wanting to read or a luxury candle in a rustic wood, chai or charcoal sent from brands like Apotheke or the White Barn Candle Company. With a plant, candle and a good book as gifts, he’ll be able to kick back and enjoy his newly serene and beautified view (while thinking of you, of course).
Gourmet Gift Baskets
Whether he enjoys the finer things in life or has a serious sweet tooth, a gorgeous gift basket filled with his favorite snacks will always be appreciated on Valentine’s Day. Spoil and stun him with a Golden Tower of Godiva gift set. Towering full of Godiva fan favorites, this Instagram-worthy gift will be hard to top (literally). The luxe golden tower is stacked high with golden boxes of chocolate covered pretzels, chocolate truffles, biscuits, almonds and so much more.
Another edible gifting option that’s just as sweet is the Golden Gourmet Gift Basket. Packed full of savory and sweet treats, this collection was designed to delight the loved one in your life. The woven basket has a stylish gold ribbon and is filled with an assortment of yummy snacks like Ghirardelli chocolates, dark chocolate espresso beans, fine French truffles, gourmet popcorn and more. There’s plenty inside to savor on his own or share with the one he loves most.
If your man is looking to eat healthier this winter and beyond, a Gourmet Kosher Fruit Package is a decadent and delicious gift. Send him some sweetness with a curated collection of in season fruits from around the world. From Imperial Comice pears, Braeburn apples, kiwis and more, he’s bound to love this good-for-him gift.
Last but certainly not least, what would Valentine’s Day date be without chocolate covered strawberries? These delectable, classic romantic treats are basically the unofficial Valentine’s Day indulgence. Pro Flowers offers four unique varieties of chocolate covered strawberries for Valentine’s Day 2021. Traditional flavors include Dark Chocolate and Milk Chocolate Covered Strawberry gifts, and each includes 12 decadent berries hand dipped by artisans in rich chocolate and drizzled in even more chocolate. Other varieties of this sweet snack include a super festive Valentine’s Half Dozen or Valentine’s Dozen sets that take the standard chocolate covered dessert and adds decorations like adorable heart-shaped sprinkles in red, pink and white.
To make your gift set even more personal, you can pair your thoughtful basket or sensual sweets with a gift card to his favorite local coffee shop or wine store and support local businesses in your town together. Now isn’t that romantic?
With the lines between working, playing and relaxing at home continuing to blur, many Americans are upgrading their tired old cotton tee shirts and plaid pajama pants for a stylish set of matching loungewear in a variety of premium fabrics. From warm terry cloth hotel-inspired robes to silky matching boxer and shirt sets, so many brands are offering excellent, lasting fabrics in designs he may never want to change out of. Pair with a yearlong subscription for a streaming service like Netflix or Discovery+ for a relaxing and entertaining gift you both can enjoy all year long.
This V-Day, surprise him with a stunning long stemmed white rose bouquet that smells amazing and instantly enhances any space it’s in. Pair with a bottle of Champagne or a minimalist black watch for a classy and classic valentine he’ll never forget.
For a more colorful creation, let the sunshine in on chilly February day with a happy yellow rose bouquet. Make a grand statement with the Exquisite option that offers 36 stems in a vase delivered right to his (or your) door. Consider pairing your yellow roses with a classic cornflower blue tie or gold tone cufflinks and don’t forget to write something lovely and romantic in the complimentary card.
The house shoe is trending this year as many Americans continue to work from home. A well-made and ultra-comfortable slipper can be a both stylish and practical Valentine’s Day gift for any man. From high fashion brands like Fendi and Prada to wallet-friendly superstores like Target, there are so many slides and slippers styles to choose from. Pair his new footwear with a chunky knit throw blanket and you’ll have yet another reason to cozy up through February and beyond.
Tech & Accessories Docking Station
Tired of phones, wallets, keys and other tchotchkes scattered about the room just waiting to be lost? A wooden docking station is the perfect gift to store and even charge everything from Apple watches to earbuds. Support crafters from across the country by buying a handcrafted wooden piece from sellers on Etsy and add personalization like his monogram or a special saying. Most sellers offer an array of woods or finishes so that you can make sure it matches the style of his bedroom, office or wherever you think he will appreciate storing all his tech necessities.
Work(out) From Home Sets
With many gyms being closed, make working out from home as easy and painless as possible by gifting him all the gadgets and gears he needs to stay in fighting shape. Check out home workout subscription services like the Peloton app (no bike required) for a gift that promises health and wellness. Pair with a nice set of Adidas or Nike shorts and sweat wicking Under Armor tee for a well rounded gift that he’ll look great in.
Virtual Cooking Classes
Give him an experience that’s socially distant and super fun with a virtual gourmet cooking class that you both can take together. Websites like Airbnb, Delish, The Chopping Block and culinary superstar Gordon Ramsay all offer live and pre-recorded cooking classes to make decadent dinners, desserts and even creative cocktails. To make the night extra memorable and romantic, dim the lights, light some candles, break out the fine china and since you’re going to be Zoom-ing live from your kitchen, might we recommend decorating with some fresh cut flowers to make the night even more beautiful?
Pair your virtual class with a homemade charcuterie board and a few bottles of his favorite wines – that way if the meal doesn’t turn out exactly as planned you can always share a few glasses and laughs. If all else fails you can always treat the love of your life to some lovely takeout from his favorite Thai or pizza place. We’re sure he won’t mind.
