Does your man only wear sneakers to every occasion? This Valentine’s Day, improve his shoe arsenal by giving him a pair of fancy shoes. While having a collection of sneakers is not bad, owning at least one pair of good classic leather shoes will help him a lot since he can use it on more formal occasions such as weddings, meetings, job interviews, and even on your Valentine’s dinner too!
Most dudes love comic books and superheroes. Is your man one of them? Is there an inner child within him that fanboys over the likes of Spiderman or Superman? If your answer is yes and he is indeed a huge fan who collects anything related to Marvel or DC, why not give him something that could be added to his collection? An action figure or collectible toys of his favorite characters would definitely put some spark in his eyes. Just be prepared for the giddy remarks he will make when he opens your gift!

For an all-around guy, a fashionable backpack might come in handy. It’s also one of the most practical gifts you can give. Whether he’s a student or a hardworking employee, he will find a backpack useful. A stylish backpack is always a hit, as it can carry essentials while still making the wearer look hip. For your Valentine’ Day gift for him, make sure to choose a color that can complement his outfits. Black is always a classy and no-fail option.

A jacket in a muted color will always be timeless!

Although the Philippines is a tropical country and most of the time the weather is hot, a jacket is still an excellent Valentine’s gift idea for many reasons. For one, a thick but lightweight jacket will be a treat for a guy who’s constantly plagued by the cold winds from his office’s air conditioner unit. During the rainy season, the cold won’t bother him, too. However, a jacket should not only be functional but also stylish! Take a cue from this cotton parka from H&M, which is not only useful but also fashionable.

Whatever you ultimately get as a Valentine’s Day gift for him, he’ll surely appreciate it because it’s from you. Have a happy Heart’s Day!
