Valentine's Day Gift Guide for Him // I Adore What I Love Blog // #iadorewhatiloveThis Valentine’s Day, surprise your man with a gift he’ll actually get excited about!! I may be biased but I think I’ve created the best vday gift guide for the men that’s currently on the internet… these gifts are not only unique but they’re priced well, seriously functional and just all around SMART. I’ve found presents for the guy who has everything, the manly man who’s into bbqing and/or drinking, the caffeine-addict, the techie, the sentimental dude, the clean freak and the work traveler. I’m pumped about these items but also stumped because how do I choose just one for the hub?? He would love them all and I know your man would too!!!!


‘Letters to My Love – A Paper Time-Capsule’ Book
for the couple who’s in it for the long haul… give it to him now with a vday love note and then write more notes throughout the year during all the special holidays, birthdays, anniversaries, etc. He gets to read them all later.

Herschel Supply Co. Duffle Bag
a chic classic duffle to be used at the gym or even for overnight work trips.
there’s also a separate shoe compartment!

Meat: Everything You Need to Know
FOR THE MEAT LOVING MAN: complete with more than seventy-five mouthwatering recipes for beef, pork, lamb, veal, and poultry written by a 3rd generation butcher.

Allbirds Men’s Wool Loungers
not only is everyone talking about these shoes, but people are buying them and are obsessed with them!
grab a pair for your hubby/bf/dad and even for yourself and your child too! TWINNING!

Nest Learning Thermostat
this smart device controls your heat and a/c via touchscreen or via wifi from anywhere in the world. these are the types of gifts that make guys get excited!

Apple Watch Series 3 (Gps + Cellular), 42mm face with Black Sport Band
this watch can literally do everrrrything!!!! if I start to name off each of it’s cool features, we’d be here all day.

Beer Cap States Wall Art
choose your state and make sure your other half starts saving his beer caps… your new piece of wall art will be ready for the man cave in no time!

2nd Generation Amazon Echo Powered by Dolby
for the guy who likes instant gratification. ask Alexa anything you want and get an answer right away! this specific echo also makes calls, sets music alarms and timers, and controls smart home devices. plus, it looks cool.

Heart Boxer Briefs
upgrade your love’s boxer brief collection with the perfect Vday inspired pair

KitchenAid Cold Brew Coffee Maker
my husband would flip for this!!! it allows you to EASILY make up to 14 cups of cold brew coffee AT HOME!!

The Carry-On Cocktail Kit – Set of 3
why make your man buy his favorite drink on the plane {or train!} when he can carry it on??
TSA approved and comes with the ingredients {there are only 2 per cocktail!} to make an Old Fashioned, Moscow Mule, and a Gin and Tonic. if he’s a drinker, he will love you for this one!

Automatic Grill Cleaner
you guys, this cleans your grill BY ITSELF. enough said
{except for maybe that you should also pick up THIS to go with it and give it a proper storage spot}
