The idea of Valentine’s Day is strange. Besides the fact that it’s now a Valentine’s season, starting in the middle of January now. It’s one of those holidays that started out with a weird history and then turned into an retail extravaganza, throwing everyone into a frenzy after the one month break we had from December and the holidays that went with it.
But, we still shop for it because it goes to the people we love and that’s what’s important (and it’s a plus that you usually get something in return).
Upon searching under the keywords “Valentine’s Day Gifts for Guys”, I came upon a plethora of typical guy gifts; i.e. metal money clip, a new collared t-shirt, socks. Then, if you do another search for “Valentine’s Day Gifts for Under $50” you end up with the all-too-famous gigantic bear or a flower bouquet (unless those are your guy’s kind of thing, no judgement here).
So I decided to scour the web for ten gifts, all under $50, to, at the very least, help assist you in buying your gifts this Valentine’s season. So without further ado, here are 10 Valentine’s Day Gifts for Him (Under $50!!)
10. Personalized Whiskey Decanter | Etsy, $44.99+
You can personalize your engraving to go either on the front or the back, and pick your number of glasses. Great for the gentleman in your life….and you for when you’re having one of those days.
9. Valentine’s Day Beer Labels | Etsy, $12.00+
This is one of those super easy gift ideas if you want to have the most hassle-free Valentine’s ever. You can DIY them, but having them shipped and ready to go is so much nicer, and everyone knows that. Just grab your SO’s favorite 6-pack and Voila!
8. Pocket Knife with Customized Wooden Box | Etsy, $25.00
You can pick your box and blade color with this genius Valentine’s Day gift. Great value for something they’ll use to clean their nails, whittle wood, cut their steak, etc.
7. Personalized Wooden Watch | Amazon, $34.99
Engrave what you want on the dial and on the back of the watch. Maybe initials on the dial and a bad pun on the back? Fate is now in your hands.
6. Valentine’s Day Popcorn Gift Box | Etsy, $29.95+
So many flavors to choose from and hopefully you’ll get a piece (or bag) too! Flavor choices include Butter, Caramel, Kettle, Cheese, Red Strawberry or Green Candy Popcorn.
5. Personalized Beer Bottle Opener | Etsy, $33.99
An easy way for him to open his beer bottles while remember how amazing you are. That’s what Valentine’s Day is REALLY about anyway. You can choose the stain color and what you want it to say.
4. Men’s Novelty Socks | Etsy, $11.50+
OKAY! I know I said no socks…but these don’t count. Select the color you want and what sassy phrase you want on them and watch him go wild (or roll his eyes) when he opens his gift.
3. Bacon & Bourbon Candle | Etsy, $11.20
Description of product is as follows: “Love Bacon? Know someone who does? Of course you do! This heavily scented candle is the perfect gift for bacon lovers everywhere. Maple glazed smoky Bacon, expertly blended with the warming aroma of a good Bourbon. The perfect husband gift, boyfriend gift, bacon lover gift, or gift for him!”
You can also personalize the lid with a short message, name or date. Smells like romance.
2. Stainless Steel Bottle Opener Key Chain | Etsy, $15.00
Stainless steel dog tag that you can personalize — so every time he opens that bottle, he’ll see through his slightly blurred vision how much you love him. Worth every penny.
1. Shower Cup Holder | Etsy, $7.75+
Needs no explanation, get one for yourself while you’re at it.
