I interviewed my friends’ husbands to find out the answer to the burning question: What do men really want for Valentine’s Day? The answers fell into the following categories:
- Food & Beverage Gifts
- Game, Concert, Theater, or Travel Tickets
- Hobby Gifts
- Intimacy Gifts
Based on the answers I received, I set-out to curate a collection of 21 Valentine’s Day Gifts Men Want and perhaps a few they just need! These products contain affiliate links. Here are some creative and easy ideas for you to consider for your sweetie:
Food & Beverage Gifts
Many of the men I interviewed said that they would love to receive gifts of food & beverages in the form of gift baskets, snacks, fast food, wine, beer, restaurant gift certificates, and homemade goodies. Here are some easy ideas for the food lover in your life:

This might be a great gift for the BOTH of you! This is the saw I own and I love it. The couple who can build together can conquer the world!
Okay, so granted that this gift might not be at the very top of his Valentine’s Day list but just think how fun it would be to learn how to waltz, swing, rumba, and foxtrot with the best of them! Couples who can confidently dance together at weddings, on cruises, at parties, etc. are adorable!

Surprise, surprise! Men want to get lucky this Valentine’s Day! 🙂 Here are some fun and creative ways to spice up your bedroom life.
Men love to see you in lingerie but many do not love to buy it. They stated that they feel awkward in the lingerie store, aren’t sure of what you’d like, and struggle with the sizes. Help a brother out and buy the lingerie for yourself. This will ensure that the lingerie is something you feel comfortable in, fits, and makes you feel beautiful. Wrap your lingerie up and give it to HIM with a cute note promising to model it for him later. Win/win!

16. The Game of Love
Monica from East Coast Creative made up this “sexy board game on a sheet” as a fun DIY blog post years ago. The post became so popular that she decided to market her product! You can buy your own Game of Love bed sheet which comes with washable markers and access to the Idea Vault. The best part is that you control the game, so you are in charge of how intimate or spicy the game will be!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
