(Photo credits: Target.com, Uncommongoods.com, and englishteastore.com) A stackable mug that says “You’re my person” in gold font. Pair it with a gold teaspoon, add a box of their favorite tea or coffee, and a gift card to their favorite bookstore. One of these literary candles could score you a few extra bonus points, too.

Show him how much you love him with this cozy N7 hoodie (even if you don’t have an ounce of love for video games in your own body). He’s not a Mass Effect fan? Maybe these manly card games are more his thing.



(Photo credit: birchbox.com) What says ‘I love you’ more than handmade? DIY Beard Oil for the manly man. He’ll love the thoughtfulness behind it. Add a basket of quality gourmet snacks for a nice touch (because the best way to a man’s heart is through his stomach — right??)


(Photo credits: Amazon.com, wayfair.com, and pinosshop.com) Movie night! Make homemade pizza, choose a bottle (or two – no one’s judging!) of wine, and surprise your lover with these elegant stemless wine glasses. Don’t forget the flowers.
