Shopping for Valentine's Day is hard. It's even harder when you're trying to shop for a man and they never seem to give you any hints.
Thankfully, I decided to do a deep dive and find some products that are out of the box. While some items are what men are looking for, some might be a surprise for them so let's not waste much time and get into some ideas if you're shopping soon.
It wouldn't be Valentine's Day without some candy and if you're shopping for a sports fan, they might interested in entering this new giveaway from Trolli. Since Caleb Williams is a big fan of Trolli, they made some limited-edition packs featuring him along with red and yellow worms as a nod to his team.
If you're looking to enter to win, you only have until February 18th so you don't have much time left until the winners are chosen. Even if your love isn't a sports fan, Trolli is easily a favorite when it comes to gummy candies so you can't go wrong with that. For those wanting some chocolate, Hershey's is always a solid choice if I do say so myself.

Moving onto some non-food items, the thing I'm grabbing this year is some pairs of The Boxer Brief from Manmade. These do retail for $20.00 a piece but trust me, they are worth the price. I gifted my boyfriend a pair for Christmas and he has not stopped raving about them. There's no way these won't make someone happy on Valentine's Day.
If you're buying them underwear, you could also consider grabbing some Dude Wipes for them too as Amazon has a special bundle right now. On there, you'll find the bundle including some Dude Wipes and some Candy Sharts. Hey, they can't be mad about a practical gift and that's exactly what Dude Wipes are.
Another brand I've had success with in the past is Carved. The brand features tons of different ideas from phone cases to pocket knives to bracelets. The most important thing is that it will be a quality and unique gift that will show them just how much you care. Giving someone a unique gift like that is underrated and it's time more people recognized that.
If your man is an adventurer or you two are planning a trip, then you might consider investing and grabbing them a pair of waterproof binoculars from NOCS Provisions. While this is higher than the average spent for Valentine's Day, this is a product you can trust and will be something your partner will use. It's especially great if they like to hike, are hunters, or just enjoy the outdoors.
Moving onto the final two items on my list, I wanted to feature two items that could be brought pretty anywhere or easy to get your hands on. First up is something from Old Navy's Valentine's Day line for men which includes shirts, underwear, and socks which most men want. Almost all of the items have hearts on them too so they have no excuse not to wear them.
Of course, it wouldn't be a men's gift guide if I didn't include Ryan Reynolds. It seems like every guy in the world loves him so I had to include Aviation Gin on my list. What can't Ryan Reynolds do? You can order a bottle of his favorite gin on ReserveBar for $35.00 and make their day just a little bit sweeter.
No matter what you get your guy this year, I'm sure they'll appreciate it. You could even go old-school and get them flowers. There's just something classic about that and it does make them feel good. Of course, you could always go with something from our gift guide, too.
