SplinterWorks Hammock Bath

Valentine’s Day is about celebrating love in all its forms, and that includes self-love. If you’ve tried online dating with little success, don’t sweat it. You don’t need a significant other to indulge in a gourmet meal, a nice bottle of wine, and a lavish gift. There’s plenty of time to update your dating profile if you still want to find that special someone, but single or not, Valentine’s Day is worth celebrating if only for the presents. After all, sometimes the best gifts are the ones you choose for yourself.

If you’re spending the holiday alone this year, make it your best Valentine’s Day yet by treating yourself to gifts you’ve always wanted but never got around to receiving. Here’s a list of treat yo’ self gifts that show just how much you love you.

The 14 Best Valentine’s Day Gifts for Men

When you think of the best Valentine's gifts, you might picture roses, chocolates, wine, and perhaps scanty apparel. While a gentleman can, by all means, enjoy flowers, sweets, and intimate garments, let's be honest; is that what anyone really wants? Shift your vision and picture a cool laptop case, a luxurious robe, and a high-quality sweater.

Don't overthink what makes a great gift for a man. When you do, you usually end up with something that will sit in its packaging for months. Instead, just ask what are the best gifts for men generally, then work from there. If he's a foodie and loves kitchen-related gifts, find a hot sauce brand or flavor he's never tried before. Make him a cocktail. And if he's into sneakers, get a new style from his favorite brand. A good gift is something he probably would not buy for himself, but will not want to be without once he has it. It's something truly thoughtful and selected with him in mind, not just picked at random.
