So what does Lusita recommend? "When shopping for Valentine's gifts this year smaller is better. Aim for meaningful gifts that show you paid attention and you’re connected with your partner's needs and wants," she says. If your guy mentioned he could use a new pan, for instance, pick him a new one for Valentine's Day! Or maybe you've noticed his pajamas are looking worn. Time for a new set! Does he lose his keys often? An AirTag keychain would be a thoughtful gift.

Gifts inspired by authenticity and heartfelt connections are another great way to go. Something sentimental like custom artwork or an engraved flask is nice. If you've got a fun-loving guy, light saber chopsticks or a Lego set make perfect presents. Check out all our top options for Valentine's Day gifts for him and find your man something he'll love.
