The best Valentine’s gifts for him are those quirky, personal items that your boyfriend or husband will truly appreciate.
Finding the best Valentine’s gift for a boyfriend or husband is far from easy – it’s about selecting something that’s just the right mix of sassy, practical and saucy. You want him to feel thought of and appreciated, but also at least a little bit lusted after.
If in doubt, go for a silly gift that will raise a smile – laughter is an aphrodisiac, after all. Failing that, focus on his passions overall. A foodie fella might appreciate receiving a hamper of tasty treats (plus you’ll get to enjoy it too – bonus), while a man who enjoys a fine single malt will definitely welcome a decent bottle of whisky as a token of your love.
But whatever he’s into, we’ve made it easy for you. Whether you’re plotting the best Valentine’s gift for your boyfriend or planning to bedazzle your other half with a memorable Valentine’s gift he’ll love, we’ve made it our mission to find the very best gifts for him.

16. Oral-B Clic Manual Toothbrush
Yes, we’re suggesting a toothbrush as one of the best Valentine’s Day gifts for him. But this is no ordinary toothbrush. It’s the Clic toothbrush from Oral B and it comes with an ergonomic handle, 2 brush heads and a very snazzy magnetic brush holder. What’s more, it uses up to 60% less plastic over 2 years compared to a regular manual toothbrush, which dentists say should be replaced every 3 months. That’s thanks to the replaceable brush head.
And if you don’t live together, we reckon this might be one of the best Valentine’s Day gifts for him that you could buy overall. You could even pop it in your bathroom and suggest he leaves it there from now on!
