Men's Valentine's Day gift ideas

1. Oribe Signature Shampoo

You might just want to call this shampoo LIQUID GOLD! It's a rich, gentle formula that's sure to leave your man's hair thoroughly cleansed and silky soft. Plus, it smells incredible and a little bit goes a long way. This is the perfect gift for any price range – this luxe shampoo starts at just $15, but if you want to splurge and make sure it'll last him months, you can buy one of their bigger size options!

2. Car Diffuser

If your boyfriend/fiance/husband takes a lot of pride in his clean car, he'll love this diptyque car diffuser. It's the most elegant car diffuser on the market with very upscale, beautiful scent inserts. Just attach to your car's ventilation grill and a woody, aromatic scent blend will fill the air! This one in particular has a perfect, manly scent, and it's a unique gift idea he's totally going to be surprised by and super excited about.

3. Golf Jacket

This golf jacket is unlike any other! The fabric is super comfortable for his swing on chillier mornings, and when the weather warms up in the afternoon, he can just zip those long sleeves right off. But the coolest part? It can fold up inside itself into its own little pouch – great for storage and for when he's on the go at the course. This really is the perfect gift for a golf lover. It's never been easier to take a jacket on the green, plus this one looks great on!

4. Golf Polo

Another men's Valentine's Day gift for the golf lover! Your man can never have too many golf polos. Especially when they're from the Travis Mathew brand. These polos are top notch and the best material, full of stretch, and they're wrinkle-resistant. This is a very nice shirt to wear not only on the course, but also perfect to wear to a casual event or dinner date night. Choose from five really great neutral colors.

5. Golf Shoes

Show your golf guy a whole lotta love by gifting him a new fresh, really good looking pair of golf shoes. His shoes likely get so trashed after rounds and rounds of golf, so these would make a great gift for any golfer! They're extra cushion-y with exceptional comfort and support, so they're sure to keep his feet comfortable while he's out on the course for 4+ hours.

6. Watch

This one's bound to make your man happy (and never late!). This watch is so sleek and modern, one of those perfect, everyday men accessories. The leather strap is dressy enough that he can wear it to formal special occasions, but it also looks nice for work, a casual dinner/movie date night, or even just on a t-shirt and shorts kind of day. Nixon watches live up to their hype and quality, and always make for a nice gift.

7. Shorts

Okay we're LOVING Vuori right now!! So soft, stretchy, and such high quality, these shorts are seriously perfect. Corrine got them for her dad, brother, and brother-in-law for Christmas one year and they LOVED them! These shorts come in many colors that can be styled in so many different ways. Whether he likes to lounge, workout, or adventure on the hiking trail, these are a guaranteed men's Valentine's Day gift win.

8. Nike Socks

Any guy could always use a new, crisp set of socks. These sweat-wicking breathable mesh socks are any guy's favorite. So cushioned and comfortable. And a six-pack is only $22!

9. Grill Tool Kit

If your man's an avid grill-master or aspiring to be, this grill tool gift box is the perfect Valentine's Day present. It includes leather gloves, a duo of suede hot pads, and a grill coal shovel. Very high-quality materials that look very nice, too.

10. Cast Iron Griddle

Your guy can cook the yummiest steaks and side dishes using this super high quality cast-iron griddle! Plop it in the oven or even in the smoker. What's even more incredible is Le Creuset's durable enamel finish, which means he doesn't have to worry about seasoning it. How amazing is that?! This is such a great men's Valentine's Day gift idea – especially if grilling is his hobby.
