Give Him a Gift That He’ll LOVE and Actually Use!
Ladies, let me help take the stress out of looking for non-cheesy Valentine’s Day gifts for him — whether he’s your dad, husband, or any man in your life, really.
Of course, you could always give him the same old tie or pair of socks you give every year.
In past years, maybe you even put a little extra thought into those DIY “love coupons” that he thought were cool, but never redeemed.
No…this year, you’re on the search for the perfect, most carefully-thought-out present for the dad, boyfriend, or husband in your life. Something he’ll love to receive. Perhaps something he will enjoy over and over again….
How about a monthly subscription box? It’s the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for any guy. No matter what he enjoys, there’s a subscription box for him.
I have put together a gift box guide with a few unique Valentine’s Day gifts I thought he would love. For the outdoors enthusiast, the jerky lover, the craft beer connoisseur, the gamer….
Don’t see anything that aligns with your guy’s interests? Let me know in the comments section, and I’ll help you find the perfect Valentine’s gift for him!
1. Bespoke Post (starting at $45)
This is the perfect subscription box for the guy who has a variety of interests, or someone who likes to be surprised every month.
Fill out the survey and let the folks at Bespoke Post know what you think he’s like to get in his boxes.
Don’t worry — he can always take a peek inside the box before it ships. Then, he can either choose something else for this month’s box or skip it altogether.
Last Christmas, I gifted my husband a subscription to Bespoke Post, and he loved the knife set (pictured below) that came in his first box.
Hopefully he loves the contents of the second box — due to arrive soon! — just as much. Before it shipped, I peeked inside and swapped out their choice for something I thought he might use more.

These are such great ideas! I never thought much about subscription boxes as a gift but there are so many cool ones out there. Thank you for sharing these!
Agreed, I never realized just how many different subscription boxes are available. :o)
These are such great ideas! I can’t believe I hadn’t heard about some of these before! Definitely going to have to check out the craft beer one. Thanks for sharing!
I’ve really been loving subscription boxes lately! Especially when it caters to the recipient’s interests.
I love how you have covered so many kinds of interests with just these few boxes! I think my husband would be thrilled with the craft beer box, and I think our older son would also be wild about the jerky snob box – I need to remember that for his birthday. I also had to chuckle about the uncashed coupons – definitely been there, done that. Thanks for some real suggestions for wonderful everyday guys.
Yep, I gave up on the coupons after a couple tries! 🙂
I love this idea. It’s fun to have a tailor made subscription for him. My boyfriend gets snacks from countries around the world and he loves it. Thanks for the ideas!
