Valentine’s Day isn’t the manliest of holidays. And in a world filled with roses, pendants and heart-shaped candy boxes, the right gift idea for your man may not spring to mind. Mushy and overly romantic gifts can fall flat. Old standbys, like ties and cufflinks, don’t express the true feelings behind them.There are plenty of creative, funny, practical and sentimental options that stay assertively manly. Just think outside the gift box a bit. Find something with an experience attached, or with an entertaining purpose. He’ll appreciate it much more than the same old same old.

It’s The Thought (Under $25)
Keep Valentine’s Day light by choosing silly gifts that come with a wink. Many lighthearted options with plenty of heart come in under $25, from Spitfire Girl’s Bad Boy Bag for $15 to Etsy store ChaosToArt’s Get Out Of Jail Free Cards for $4. The Bad Boy Bag is filled to the brim with whoopee cushions, water guns and other gag gifts. Water gun fight, anyone? If you’re feeling truly generous in your heart, give him these Get Out Of Jail Free Cards for the next time he goofs up.
If you want more bang for your buck, scoop up the roller rock glass from Home Wet Bar for $22. The sleekly designed, spherical ice mold creates a perfect, two-inch ice ball, which will roll across the bottom of his whiskey glass, opening up the aromatics without diluting the drink. Maybe he’s not much of a drinker. Pick up a Brew It Yourself Root Beer Kit for $12.46. He can brew up to four gallons of old-fashioned root beer at home. Add a half gallon of vanilla ice cream for root beer floats, an extra sweet Valentine’s Day treat.
