In case you haven't noticed all of the red hearts in the shop windows lately, Valentines Day is this Thursday the 14th. While some consider Valentine's Day to be a made up holiday from Hallmark, it can also serve as a reminder for you to tell someone that you think they're pretty special.
However, this can be a tricky gift to buy for anyone, whether you're settled down into a long term relationship or not. How romantic or personal your gift should be can tell a lot about your relationship. A heart shaped box of candy is in a different league from flowers and lace is on a whole other scale entirely.
So, we put together a list of our favorite presents that any guy would enjoy no matter if you've been married for 100 years or you just met last week online. We hope you appreciate this list as much as we enjoyed putting it together and we would love to hear about any of your favorite gifts you've either bought or received over the years.
And keep in mind, you can always buy this stuff for yourself too. We do.
Ok, chocolate on Valentine's Day is totally cliche', we know. But this year, skip out on the heart shaped box from CVS and explore the wonderful world of custom confection.
Our personal favorite is the Single Malt Scotch Cask Strength Cordials from Sugarfina.
Yes, there is REAL SCOTCH in these so you must be +21 to buy but they are an unreal combination of the two greatest things every created.

For a different type of pick-me-up, we turn to our other favorite way to stay caffeinated. Only this time, we ditch the K-cups for something with a little more style.
This brass pour-over coffee station not only makes a fantastic cup of your favorite blend, it is also a mini work of art that looks wonderful on any kitchen counter.
This system is easy to keep clean and will be a welcome addition to your favorite coffee drinker's morning routine.
Pair it with some locally roasted coffee like from our neighbors over at the Common Room Roasters.
