Does shopping for Valentine’s Days gifts ever make you feel like Goldilocks? Too sappy. Too serious. Too cliche. Don’t sweat it. Here are 5 stylish, practical, fun finds, guaranteed to be “just right” for the special guy in your life.
For the craft-beer lover: This classic stainless steel Stanley growler ($35) will keep 64oz. of his favorite IPA or ale cold for up to 24 hours (and looks better than a stack of cans). Perfect for après ski, days at the beach, tailgating, picnics, stargazing or wherever the weekend takes you.
For the renaissance man: Because the only thing that would make him more impressive would be knowing how to saber a champagne bottle (no, seriously!). The Kaufman Merchantile Guide ($13.50).
For the music lover: The sleekest, chicest reason to start collecting his favorite tunes on vinyl. Plus, this Audio Tecnica turntable ($179) is equipped with bluetooth so he can pair them with his wireless speakers.
For the world traveler: Rugged enough for the hiking trail, yet tailored for modern adventures (hello, padded laptop sleeve), The North Face jester backpack in Turkish Sea ($65) is sure to be his new favorite carryall.
For the guy who has everything: Clothes don’t make the man, but a pair of classic shades never hurts. Ray-Ban Wayfarer sunglasses ($150)
