Did you know that approximately 145 million Valentine's Day cards are exchanged every year, according to the experts at Hallmark?
Rather than gift your husband or boyfriend with another cutesy Valentine's Day card, show him how well you know him by giving him something you know he'll love.
Finding the perfect Valentine's Day gift can be a challenge, especially for the “man who has everything." Luckily, whether your guy is into sports, food or fitness, there's something for everyone on our list of the best Valentine's Day gifts for him.
Think outside of the heart-shaped box this Valentine's Day and gift your significant other something that he (and you!) will love.
We can all use more downtime, between long workdays and taking care of the family. Gift your S.O. with the gift of relaxation this Valentine's day with a romantic weekend getaway. If you've been talking about visiting a certain place for years, take the reins and finally book it! If you're not sure where to start and want to get romantic, check out U.S. News & World Report's 50 Top Romantic Weekend Getaways for some inspiration.
If you don't want to travel far, play tourists in your hometown with a relaxing staycation. Book dinners, an event and activities so you can have a relaxing and fun-filled weekend right in your own backyard.
If your significant other loves the craft beer scene, gift him a brewery tour. Brewery tours are a fun way to check out your city's local beer scene while getting a behind-the-scenes look at how your favorite beers are made — all while sipping delicious flights and spending quality time together as a couple.
If you're lucky enough to live in a place like San Diego, CA, or Burlington, VT, you may have dozens of breweries to choose from — so don't choose just one. Plan a beer crawl and Uber to all of his favorite spots, grabbing lunch and snacks in between.
Whether he's cheering for the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday or the Lakers on Thursday, your S.O. needs a game-day outfit to properly show support for his favorite team. Gift him with his favorite team's swag, like a hoodie, T-shirt or hat. Shop Fanatics or Fans Edge to find a variety of sports apparel and gifts. Update his wardrobe with a few items or just replace that old raggedy jersey he's been wearing since you met freshman year of college.
If you're not sure what he likes, give him a gift card so he can choose for himself and you can still show that you know your S.O. as well as he knows you.
They say a way to a man's heart is through his stomach — so ditch your Friday night dinner reservation for a group or solo cooking class. Channel his inner "Top Chef" and learn how to cook delicious recipes from trained culinary experts right at home.
If neither of you enjoys cooking, create your own culinary experience with a food tour of the best local spots. You may even be able to have someone else plan it for you — and teach you about your city along the way. Search for local food tours in your area to find the best Valentine's Day gift for your foodie S.O.
Finally, if neither of those are a good fit, and you live in a warm-weather location, have a Valentine's Day picnic. Grab all of his favorite foods and snacks, like sausage, cheese, crackers and chips, along with a few drinks. Head to your favorite outdoor hang spot and indulge in a tasty meal just the two of you.
Couples that sweat together, stay together, right? Gift your significant other with a workout class or two without the commitment of an expensive new gym membership.
Purchase an initial pass to a boutique gym you think he'd like or buy him a ClassPass, a monthly subscription ranging from as little as $9 to $159 featuring more than 30,000 fitness studios and gyms. From boxing to hot yoga to boot camp, your S.O. can choose from an array of fun fitness classes.
If your boyfriend or husband still travels with his beat-up duffel bag from college (or worse, high school), then it's time to upgrade his travel gear. Here are a few travel accessories he may appreciate during your next trip:
Laughter is good for the soul. In fact, laughter can relieve stress responses and soothe tension, according to the Mayo Clinic. Do your body good and enjoy a night of comedy with your significant other by gifting him with tickets to a local comedy show. Make it extra special by planning dinner or drinks before at your favorite restaurant.
Valentine's Day shouldn't be stressful, so stop searching far and wide for the perfect gift. Instead, look no further than our list of simple gifts that has something for every guy — whether he's a sports fan or travel enthusiast.
