Gift Guide - Valentine's Day for Him

Valentine's Day is right around the corner and that means it's almost time for chocolates, roses and those conversation hearts that taste too similar to chalk for my liking. I'm not usually one to go all out for Valentine's Day but it is a nice time to show your love and appreciation for that special someone in your life. Finding the right gift is hard though, where do you even start? Well I've gone ahead and done the searching for you and rounded up a collection of gifts to give your guy that are cool, functional and won't break the bank.

Sleepy Jones Boxers - I first bought Jeff a pair of these Sleepy Jones boxers two years ago for Christmas. He loved them so much he went out and bought a bunch more pairs and wears them for lounging and to sleep pretty much every night. These are a great way to step up your man's sleepwear style without him even realizing it.

Herschel Backpack - There are few items more functional than a backpack. They work great for a weekend trip or trekking to Brooklyn breweries to pick up can releases...just us?

Gingham Tie - Not many men like to buy new ties, do him a solid and get a new one for all the upcoming weddings you most likely have this year. I love this blue gingham one for spring and summer.

Keap Candle - We heard about Keap candles at a pop-up shop and loved what the company stood for. They make high-quality candles, at great prices and support social causes. Oh and they have awesome branding too. They do a candle subscription that Jeff got me for Christmas this past year which makes for a great gift.

Red Anorak - That springtime rain will be coming before we know it. This red jacket works great as a V-Day gift and will come in handy in a few short months when the weather warms up.

Travel Shoe Bags - Throwing your shoes into your suitcase with all your clothing is pretty gross, but how many guys actually own shoe bags? Do him a favor and clean that situation up with this set.

Fleece Hoodie - This reminds me of one of Jeff's favorite Patagonia sweatshirt, this time in a cozy cream fleece. Functional for the end of Winter but also great for chilly summer nights.

Vans - Can you ever heard someone say they have too many pairs of Vans? I love the red and burgundy combo on this high-top style.

Ray-Bans - These Clubmaster Flat sunglasses are a cool new take on a classic style. If your guy is into Ray-Bans this is a great gift to add to his collection in a fresh new way.
