The holidays are JUST over. In fact, I just took down my tree a week ago, but the next holidays that involves gifts and food is almost here:
If you spent too much money during the holidays, don’t worry, because you can still get your guy something nice. This list has something for every type of guy out there.
I’m always on the lookout for a few things when finding the perfect Valentine’s Day gifts for the hubs:
- Practicality: Even though it’s Valentine’s Day, I’m not really into buying frivolous gifts that look cool but that can’t be used, which is why practicality is such a big deal.
- Price: We’re working on a budget, and you probably are too, so price is incredibly important. This list has gifts ranging from $10 to over $100, so no matter your budget, you can get your guys something cool for Valentine’s Day.
- Ingenuity: We’ve all given socks and ties, maybe even pocket knives, but these gifts will appeal to your guy on a whole different level as well as look good and do what they’re meant to do.
Some of these are cheap gifts, starting at about $10, while others are more expensive gifts. Make sure that before you buy a single gift you have decided on your budget and you’re sticking to it!
I’ve divided up this gift guide into 3 sections: Cheap, Cheaper, and Cheapest, so you can choose the gifts which fit your budget and that your guy will like.
Besides that, have fun! Valentine’s Day is such a fun time of year!

The new Kindle Fire, 7″ was just released, and it is being sold at the unbeatable price of $49.99.

My favorite feature by far is the ability to download movies and TV episodes available for free with Aamzon prime to the tablet and then watch them when you don’t have an internet connection! It’s ground-breaking technology and a huge convenience for road trips, plane rides, and other time when he might want to watch an episode of his favorite Prime show but doesn’t have an internet connection.

Cold Beer. It’s a magical thing. It brings people together, helps them relax, gives “liquid courage”, and is a regular sidekick for many of the good times in your life. That sidekick is to be celebrated.
As much as beer represents these dynamic aspirational things in our lives, it can be finicky. When beer gets too warm, it is harsh, brutal, and generally difficult to drink. In an effort to keep beer time as it should be, we invented the Chillsner. One should not feel pressure to chug a perfectly crafted brew in order to avoid the downside of a warm beer. Beer should be respected and enjoyed at whatever pace is ideal for its consumer.
Warm beer is both a literal and metaphorical buzz kill. We wanted drinkers of a beer to have an effective way to continue to enjoy the experience of drinking beer that was both functionally effective and aesthetically interesting and beautiful (in a “beer” kind of way).
Oh my, this is cool, and maybe another gift that I want for myself.

These very manly-looking Wooden Bottle Openers are made of solid rubber wood and have contoured handles, making them the perfect addition to any bar. Thy are all identical and have a smooth, sanded handle that makes opening bottle after bottle a breeze!
The bottle openers are designed to not only let you easily open bottles without any slippage and plenty of leverage, but they are eco-friendly as well! Rubberwood is the wood of the rubber tree, which is grown as a source for natural rubber. When the trunks of rubber trees are cut, they exude a milky liquid – latex – that is collected and processed to make rubber. After the trees reach about 30 year of age, latex production declines and the tree is replaced with a new one. It used to be that the rubber trees would be cut clear and burnt to make way for the new ones. However, the lumber is no longer burnt, but it is used to make furniture and kitchen woodware. (cutting boards, knife blocks, etc.) The recycled cardboard box contains three identical hand bottle openers with rubber wood handles and high-grade hardened steel hardware.
These bottle openers also come with a lifetime guarantee!
No matter what your guy likes, and what your budget prefers, you can celebrate Valentine’s Day with a present he loves!
