Picking the perfect present for your significant other is never easy, and that tends to be even more true when the person you’re buying for is male. After a few expensive ties, a nice set of golf clubs, and a luxury watch, it often feels like the list of must-haves is exhausted. Fortunately, if your boyfriend or husband has a taste for the finer things, there are still plenty of great gifts you can scoop up just in time for Valentine’s day. Here are our top picks:
A wine aerator: If your guy fancies himself an amateur sommelier, he’ll love this stylish wine aerator. Ideal for opening up those vintages you’ve been saving for a special occasion, this elegant aerator will make every pour a little bit more perfect.
A luxe shave kit: A burly beard is a fine accessory for Movember, but when it’s time to time to go back to a clean-shaven look, your guy deserves a great shave kit. Fortunately this set from The Art of Shaving has everything a man needs to get a super-close shave while keeping his skin smooth and healthy, too. Packing a super-soft shave brush, shaving cream, pre-shave oil, and after-shave balm, this kit will have your guy going from Paul Bunyan to Don Draper in mere minutes.
A smart home device: While hiring a full-time personal assistant may not be in the cards, you can get your guy the next best thing by splurging on an Amazon Echo Dot. This tiny device can play music and audiobooks, add items to grocery lists, answer questions, give you the news, and even place Amazon orders for you.
A great robe: If your guy loves lounging, but you can’t stand seeing him in those ratty track pants one more time, grab him this super-soft robe from the Ace Hotel instead. Resembling something Mark Zuckerberg would wear to a business meeting, this stylish robe can make even the laziest days look good.
A traveling wine kit: Just because you’re on the road doesn’t mean you have to be relegated to drinking only what the local 7-11 has in store. This smart traveling wine kit from Lorenzi Milano has room for a corkscrew, two glasses, two bottles of wine, two watertight caps, and even a thermometer to make sure your beverage is never outside the ideal temperature zone.
This year, leave the gift cards and truffles on the shelf. Your significant other deserves something special, and there’s no time like Valentine’s Day to show him just how much he means to you with the perfect present. Luckily, these luxury gifts will make even the most difficult-to-buy-for guy feel like a million bucks.
