25 Unique Valentine’s Gifts for Him in 2022

Valentine’s Day creeps up so quickly, doesn’t it? It seems like it was just New Year’s Eve, and then suddenly you need to find a perfect Valentine’s Day gift for him – and you’re drawing a blank.

Fear not! We have you covered with 25 unique Valentine’s Day gifts for the special guy in your life, at every price point, from affordable to luxe. These gifts are memorable and special, not your run-of-the-mill chocolate sampler.

How to choose the right Valentine’s Day gift for him?

Choosing a thoughtful Valentine’s gift for a guy can be notoriously difficult. Here are some of our best tips:

  • It doesn’t need to be stereotypically romantic: There’s nothing wrong with gifting chocolates or flowers. Yet because these Valentine’s Day gifts are so common, they can also feel somewhat impersonal. Often, a more outside-the-box Valentine’s gift, like a tumbler set or high-quality grooming products, will feel more unique.
  • Consider gifts that won’t sit around forever: Marcel Proust said that gifts that have “the virtue of mortality” – that don’t demand to be displayed forever – are often the best ones. That can be true for Valentine’s Day gifts for guys. Instead of generic flowers or chocolates, though, consider more unique gifts like Milk Bar sweets, artisanal coffee assortments, spice rubs, fragrances, grooming products, or even caviar!
  • Choose gifts that let him pamper himself: Guys aren’t always good at spoiling themselves. So choose gifts like luxury grooming products, cotton robes and wellness products that a guy is less likely to buy for himself.
  • Give gifts he can swap: When you send a gift on Goody, your gift recipient can swap your gift for another option if they prefer. (Don’t worry, they won’t see the price.) That way, there’s no stress if you choose something he doesn’t love.
