Looking for the perfect Valentine’s gift for him? We’ve rounded up a mix of the best Valentine's gifts for the stylish man in your life — from popular classics and to newly launched brands, there’s sure to be a gift for your boyfriend, husband or special guy.
Cologne to Share
The notion of carrying a partner with you everywhere is better played out in a fragrance than a wallet size photo or screen saver. A fun gift idea is a fragrance you can share -- like Aspley cologne by Truefitt & Hill.
This new scent from the world's oldest barbershop works well for both men and women. Apsley ignites the senses with a refined blend of smoldering woods accentuated by light citrus notes. The harmonious overtones of woody vetiver are lifted with a refreshing essence of grapefruit and are accentuated by notes of pepper, while its heart of cedar wood and patchouli is enriched by sensual notes of musk.
Culinary City Tours
Can’t decide on a restaurant? Want to give him something more experiential?
Avital Tours curates unique 4-course progressive meals in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and starting in New York in March, where each course from appetizer to entree to dessert is served at a different restaurant. Guests hear the stories of chefs and restaurant owners while tasting what makes the local culinary scene special. Still on the fence about him? Try their cocktail tours.
The Guy Grooming Set
The guys in your life might not think to ask for a super-rich shaving cream or a mossy, woodsy smelling candle, but they sure as hell won’t be sad to have them.
Includes: Cremo Shave Cream, S.W. Basics Cream, Boy Smells Candle in Coin, Kalastyle Modern Wash Soaps in Coffee, Soapwalla Deodorant Cream, Richer Poorer Seer US Crew Sock in Black Gray, and Kinaloon Bear Hug Card.

Give Him A Close Shave
Because nothing says I love you like a closer, smoother shave minus the razor burn and bumps that come from multi-blade cartridge razors! Not only will your Valentine be more kissable but he'll also save money transitioning to Traditional Shaving! Where replacement cartridges will run you over $20 for a 4-pack, you can get 100 DE Blades for under $10! Granted there are some Dollar Cartridge Clubs but what's the point if you are still paying for inferior tools? Save Face this Valentine's Day and Show him you truly care!
