Illustrated Gift Guide: Valentines for Him

January went by in a flash and before you know it Valentine’s Day will be here.  So, what to get him?  Here’s my illustrated gift guide to help you find the perfect gift for your guy.

valentine's day gift guide for the dapper gentleman in your life

pocket squares NeedSupply and $$ Bloomingdale’spersonalized cuff links $ Amazon, 2gb usb cuff links $$ Brookstone, crystal whiskey glasses Glencairn

If your guy is like V.Ng then you know he has good taste and a business-ready wardrobe.  He probably already owns a lot of cuff links or tie bars – so I loved these unique ones that offer fun utility and secret messages.

valentine's day gift guide for the pro techie in your life

leather iPhone case J.Crew (iPhone5), dodo case $$ J.Crew, ZaggKeys for iPad 2/3 $$ Amazon

If your beau is always on the go – he’ll definitely appreciate these sleek and manly tech accessories.  I love the use of classic materials, like leather and wood, for modern accessories.

valentine's day gift guide for the avid gamer in your life

Portal 2 $$ Amazon, Rayman Origins $ Amazon, x-box live points $$ Targetplaystation network $$ TargetBlackWidow gaming keyboard $$ Razer

Most guys (including V.Ng) can’t get enough of video games.  Unfortunately it doesn’t seem to fade away with age (my brother, 33, is still a gamer at heart.)  Show him you’re cool by encouraging him to ignore you for four hours straight.  Or, better yet, give him a fun co-op game you can enjoy together like Portal2 or Rayman Origins.  You’ll love them for the cute graphics and fun premises – he’ll love you for playing a video game with him.

valentine's day gift guide for the seasoned chef in your life

the French Laundry Cookbook Amazonknife block $$ Bloomingdale’sjuice fountain $$ Breville

If he’s always in the kitchen (lucky!) and loves trying the latest Michelin recommended secret – then  he won’t be able to resist trying his hand at some of Thomas Keller’s world famous dishes.  Another great gift (maybe a little more for yourself?) is my all time favorite juicer - it’s compact, sleek, easy to clean and comes with a recipe booklet.  For the price of three days of Blueprint – you could juice for the rest of your life!

I hope this helps you find that something special for your guy! And, I have more V-day inspired posts to come (like what to wear on your date or what he can get you.)  Thanks for viewing. <3
