The Budgeter’s Valentine's Day Gift Guide for Him

Hello again! Valentine’s Day is only about a month away. I’ve been thinking about what to get the man in my life. Is it just me or are guys hard to shop for?

Maybe the men I know don’t need or ask for a lot, but every holiday, I’m left scratching my head over what to get them. I’ve done a lot of brainstorming to come up with some budget-friendly ideas for this holiday.

Here’s a guide to Valentine’s Day gifts for him.

Gifts Under $50

1 | Mushroom growing kit

This mushroom growing kit is perfect for the green thumb but easy enough for the guy who is not. I grew a set of these mushrooms and added them to pizza, a casserole, and soup. They tasted so fresh picked right from the earth. I can’t wait to get another kit growing soon.


2 | Kate Spade wine glasses

These Kate Spade his and hers wine glasses are fun for taking a drink together. 


3 | American Grilled Cheese Kitchen book

This is the best cheese-related cookbook around. I’v eaten at the American Grilled Cheese Kitchen and can’t get enough of their delicious food! Mac and cheese grilled cheese sandwich. Need I say more? 


 4 | Yoda One for Me Star Wars t-shirt

If your guy is a Star Wars fan, let him know you feel about him with this Yoda One for Me t-shirt. I’m loving this best boyfriend in the galaxy t-shirt too. There are others for best husbands if your partner is your hubby.

5 | Baseball cap

Spring Training for the baseball season is starting up soon. Grab a cap sporting your guy’s favorite team for him to wear all season long.

6 |  Slim wallet

No one wants to carry around more stuff than they have to. Slim wallets like this one are the best thing around when you or you guy want to carry the bare minimum of card and cash. They fit right in your pocket without making them look too bulky. This one is a slim-fitting folding wallet if that’s his preference.


7 | Computer backpack

This computer backpack has lots of compartments to hold everything he would need including a 15-inch computer. It even comes with a USB charging port and a combination lock. I love how professional it looks for work or a casual outing


8 | Chocolate cookies

My guy and I often exchange sweets with each other for Valentine’s Day, our anniversary, and even Christmas. These chocolate cookies will have him thinking of you as he eats a nice snack. Maybe he’ll even share some with you!


Gifts Under $100

9 |  Nintendo Entertainment System: Classic Edition

If your guy is a video game player, the NES Classic will be a hit on Valentine’s Day. It comes with games such as Super Mario Bros., Donkey Kong, The Legend of Zelda, and Final Fantasy. It’s perfect for the old-school gamer who grew up with these great games!


10 | Red Dead Redemption 2

Red Dead Redemption 2 is available and a hit game too if the NES Classic isn’t available. It’s not for the faint-hearted though.


11 | Man Crate

Man Crates are gift packages with snacks, gadgets, and other manly things. A few of their many offerings include this hickory grilling crate and this pizza grilling crate. You could also find the contents individually and make a crate of your own.


12 |  Fossil watch

A watch is a classic accessory piece, even if he has a cell phone to tell the time. This Fossil watch is perfect for wearing dressed up or down.


13 |  Memory foam pillow

There’s nothing better than a good night’s sleep, which requires the perfect pillow. This memory foam pillow will help if your guy is having neck pains or just needs to replace an old pillow. 


What are some of your favorite gifts for the guy in your life?
