Yeah, yeah, Valentine’s Day is a fake holiday. But don’t get it twisted: the stakes are very much real. Making a shortlist of Valentine’s gifts for him is a good place to start, because no matter how anti-capitalist your giftee claims to be, they will be secretly disappointed if you don’t buy them a gift, and will read way too deeply into whatever you get them if you do. It’s a real rock-and-a-hard-place situation, but it’s better to take your chances with the latter. That’s why we’ve compiled this list of can’t-fail Valentine’s Day gift ideas for him that just about every guy will love—including gaming devices that both of you can enjoy on a date night in, comfy but stylish layers for his glossiest fits yet, and skincare picks that’ll nudge him in the right direction. Good luck out there, everybody.
