10 Affordable Valentine's Day Gift Ideas That Your Man Will LOVE!

It's no secret that men are almost impossible to shop for ... and they say we're the difficult ones, right? Check out some of these super cool gift ideas that the special guy in your life will not only appreciate, but will use all of the time!

1. Buck Knife

Whether your man likes to cook, hunt, or just gets a kick out of having cool gadgets, Buck Knife is a great place to shop! Not only do they have a wide variety of knives to choose from, but Buck Knife offers customization services including engraving, which adds sentimental value to your gift. My boyfriend, Chris, loves his Buck Knife and uses it for when he hunts or goes on camping trips. He tells me all the time it is probably one of the best gifts I have ever bought for him. So, if you decide to take the plunge and purchase from Buck Knife, I promise you that you won't regret it!

2. Thermapillow™

Every man's ideal night includes kicking back and relaxing with a cold beer in hand. Now, throw a deep tissue shiatsu massage in there and it's a home run. The Thermapillow™ Shiatsu Pillow Massager with Heat is the perfect gift for the couch potato in your life. This product is by far the best gift I ever got my dad, who suffers with back problems as a result of a car accident he experienced when he was younger.

The Thermapillow™ even includes a car adapter port for relief on the go! Asking him to be designated driver for the night just got a lot easier!

3. Yeti Colster Can Insulators

We've all experienced warm beer at one point or another and vowed to never let a drink sit for more than five minutes ever again . . . which is why Yeti was a step ahead of everyone else and created the life changing Colster Can Insulators! Whether your special guy enjoys beer in a can, a bottle or if you're like my boyfriend and can appreciate a White Claw every once in a while, then this product is by far one of the best gifts you can give him!

You can even customize your can insulator with a cool engraving that suits your man's personality. For example, as mentioned earlier, Chris loves to hunt, so I engraved deer antlers on his black can insulator.

4. Carhatt Men's Duck Active Jacket

New York winters can be tough, which is why it is important for your man to stay warm if he works outdoors. When I went to Dick Sporting Goods over the holiday season, I came across this jacket that I personally think every guy would love! Not only did this jacket have quilted lined sleeves, but the amount of pockets on one jacket was to be believed!

The Carhatt Men's Duck Active Jacket is made with 3M™ Thinsulate™ insulation, which provides lightweight warmth and Cordura® reinforcements, which are designed to add durability and abrasion resistance to extend the life of the garment.

5. MVMT for Him

A couple of years back when I was social media influencing, I worked with this brand called MVMT for Her. I instantly fell in love with their accessories! Over the course of the holiday season when I started shopping around for gift ideas, I came across the brand once again and decided to give the MVMT for Him section a try . . . and boy, was it the best thing I ever did.

The MVMT for Him watches are sleek, stylish and pair well with any outfit, especially if your guy is dressing sharp for an occasion. Right now the brand is having a 20% off sale for Valentine's Day!

The Dewalt 1/4 in. x 3/8 in. Drive Polished Chrome Mechanics Tool Set (142-Piece) is an amazing starter kit for someone looking to keep his tools organized and eager to start his next project!

You know what they say, when you feel your best--you do your best, which is why you can't go wrong with purchasing Gym Shark apparel for the fitness buff in your life! Gym shark offers high quality, flexible apparel for an affordable price. Did I mention most of their clothes are slim fit? *wink wink*

8. His Favorite Bottle

For all my readers age 21 and over, this idea is for you! Find out his favorite bottle of liquor and create a custom label with his name on it. Then, wrap a ribbon around the neck of the bottle and there you have it! A simple gift with meaning. If you're feeling really creative, create a "hangover basket" filled with his favorite munchies!

To get a custom made label, head over to Etsy and type in "custom liquor labels" in the search bar.

9. Phone Soap

If your husband, boyfriend or fiancé works in a field that is heavily germ infested, then you have to check out Phone Soap. The amount of germs that chill on our phones daily is seriously disgusting, but Phone Soap takes care of that in no time. This product is a UV phone sanitizer that charges your phone while it is being disinfected. Pretty cool huh?

10. Beer Making Kit

Men are all about "doing it themselves", which is why a beer making kit would be a great gift idea for the beer lover in your life! The Mr. Beer Complete Beer Making 2 Gallon Starter Kit is an affordable product designed for the first-time brewer. This beer kit is equipped with step by step instructions for easy brewing! This could be a fun activity to do together or could be the beginning of a booming at-home business!
