13. BLUU culinary blow torch
Dudes simply love fire going back to the stone age. The Bluu culinary blow torch packs serious firepower to do everything from light a pile of charcoal briquettes or carmelize sugar on top of a creme brulee. It works with butane, propane and mapp tanks and comes with more safety features than a mid-sized sedan.
For a spa-worthy massage at home, all he needs is the Theragun Elite. One of our staff members put the handheld massager to the test and liked that it was powerful (perfect for kneading out knots) and could get to even the hardest-to-reach spots.

20. Nintendo Switch OLED
The Nintendo Switch is an amazing little console in large part because you can take it just about anywhere. Its latest iteration, Nintendo Switch OLED packs a big and bright seven-inch OLED screen that makes blockbuster titles and classic games look their absolute best. There's no competition with that library either that spans from the cozy Animal Crossing: New Horizons to the fun and gory Doom and everything in between.
21. Pizza Steel Pro
For the guy who's pizza-obsessed, this flat bar of steel is the secret weapon to absolutely delicious thin-slice pie. It lives on the bottom rack of any oven, absorbs and dishes out heat quickly and efficiently makes cracker-crisp crusts and assists with browning. This pizza steel even comes with a pizza peel to get pies out of the roaring hot ovens easily and safely.
22. Gravity Weighted Blanket
Sometimes he needs to decompress—and a weighted blanket could help any guy do just that. Of all the ones we've tested, we like the Gravity Blanket the best because it's super soft to the touch and provides just the right amount of pressure to be comforting but not suffocating.
23. Patagonia Better Sweater Zip Jacket
Name a sweatshirt that's more recognizable than the Patagonia pullover... we'll wait. The knit fleece is so popular for a lot of reasons besides the fact that it looks good—it's also cozy yet breathable, high-quality (so he can wear it for years to come), and made with recycled materials.
24. Apple Airpods Pro (2nd gen)
Maybe he's an audiophile or maybe he likes not dealing with a pesky wire when he's out for a run. No matter his reason, every guy appreciates a good pair of wireless earbuds—and there are few more popular than the Apple AirPods Pro right now. Not only do our experts rave that the white earbuds have a more comfortable fit, but the upgraded AirPods Pro also use active noise cancellation technology so he can listen to his tunes in peace.
25. GrowlerWerks uKeg
Beer drinkers will agree that brews taste better poured from a tap, so get him the uKeg from GrowlerWerks. Made of vacuum-insulated stainless steel, fans of the growler/keg combo sa it keeps their beer ice cold and carbonated (you can even customize the carbonation level) all day long. And whenever he's ready for happy hour, he can use the tap dispenser to pour the perfect pint.
26. Yeti Rambler Mug
While Yeti makes our all-time favorite cooler, you might not want to drop that much cash on his Valentine's gift. Instead, you can get him the brand he loves at an affordable price with the popular Rambler mug. Made of double vacuum-insulated stainless steel, it's made to keep coffee steaming hot (or water ice cold) for hours.
27. Four Roses Small Batch & Osmo Toasted Vanilla Bourbon Salt Kit
Bourbon is the drink of kings and Four Roses Small Batch Select is one of the smoothest bourbons available.

30. Bombas Valentine's Day socks
Socks are one of those gifts that sound crummy in theory but are actually amazing to receive. If you plan on gifting your guy socks, make them the best socks on the market. Our reviewers loved Bombas so much that they will never settle for lesser socks ever again. There are plenty of styles available but these Valentine's Day ankle socks are perfect for keeping feet warm and cozy in the season of love.
31. Dollar Shave Club
The last thing any man wants to do after a long day at work is go back out to the store because he ran out of razors (or worse, realize it in the morning when it's too late and he has a 9 a.m. meeting). Enter a subscription to Dollar Shave Club, which is one of our favorite subscription boxes of the year. It'll keep him stocked with all the necessary shaving essentials delivered right to his doorstep.

The Leatherman Wave Plus is the near-identical follow-up to the Leatherman Wave that won our roundup of the best multitools. It looks great, offers impressive performance, has excellent user reviews, and comes with a 25-year warranty.

It features everything we love about the Charge 4—namely its ease of use, GPS integration and comfortable design—plus improved battery life and even more tracking abilities.
36. Craft Beer Club
A six-pack of Bud Light just isn't going to cut it for this beer drinker. If he loves exploring new breweries and trying out new beers, he'll love a subscription to Craft Beer Club. The service delivers 12 bottles each month and include a wide variety of unique breweries and beers, from stouts to IPAs to porters.
37. Parachute Classic Bathrobe
Make him feel like he's at a five-star resort with this luxe robe. Made of super soft Turkish cotton, it's so cozy that some reviewers even compare it to being wrapped up in a cloud.
What do you get the guy who already has everything? Classes taught by his favorite celebrities, of course. With an All-Access Pass to MasterClass, he can learn how to cook from Gordon Ramsay, how to tell better jokes from Steve Martin, and even how to shoot hoops from Steph Curry.

The dual-filter design makes coffee that isn't just tasty but silky smooth.
45. JBL Flip 6
If there's one thing guys from all walks of life can agree on, it's that stuff should just work. Especially tech stuff. Based on this criterion, the JBL Flip 6 Bluetooth speaker couldn't be more dude-friendly. Simply turn the Flip 6 on, wait a second or two for it to pair and you're good to go. The Flip 6 is our winner for the best value portable Bluetooth speaker. It's splash-proof, features a rugged design and pumps out some seriously good sound.
