Out of the Box Valentine's Day Gifts for Your Guy

Out of the Box Valentine's Day Gifts 

Unique Gift Ideas for Men

When I lived overseas, Valentine's Day was not very big in our host country. My husband didn't grow up with Valentine's Day as I had, so I decided that I did not want to "force" this holiday on him, but I still wanted to celebrate in a low key and fun way. So we would head out to the cheese shop and buy everything we needed to create a cheese and charcuterie board, and enjoy that with a bottle of wine. In a country with 25% sales tax, this was a real treat, and we have continued this tradition. However, now that I am back in the States, one of my favorite things is to help friends and family find unique and cool gifts for the people they love. One of my favorite shops for men's gifts (and really, for myself), is Cool Material. I can seriously get lost in their online shop for what feels like hours, looking for interesting gifts, so enjoy the following list of awesome and quirky finds, ranging from the not expensive to over the top.  Happy shopping!

Everyone has heard of Stitch Fix. Trunk Club is a personalized online, subscription-based shopping for men (and women).   

Bespoke Post is a subscription service that curates and delivers theme-oriented boxes of locally and internationally sourced lifestyle goodies every month. From BBQ to fashion and home brewing, this is a gift that will renew his interest in receiving something in the mail. You can get an annual membership, or individual boxes.

There are many companies such as The Extreme Experience that offer the chance to drive exotic cars on a real racetrack- a great gift for someone who has it all or who is hard to shop for.
