You may have chosen the guy, but that doesn't mean it's easy to choose a present for him–especially on Valentine's Day. (Who knew celebrating love could be so stressful?😂) You want a Valentine's Day gift for him that reflects the love you share, but like love, it's complicated. (Not to mention, you may have set the bar pretty high with the hints you've sent his way. Read 21 Valentine's Day Gifts For Her if you need some ideas!)

Finding something that's the perfect intersection of thoughtful, sentimental and practical is no small feat, but our rule of thumb is to choose something that will make him feel warm and fuzzy on the inside or the outside. (It is the dead of winter, after all.) From go-anywhere blankets that are perfect for snuggling by the fire to personalized gifts that may even conjure a tear or two, we've rounded up some of our favorite Valentine's Day gifts for men below.
