The Valentine’s Day of yesteryear-where a woman would get a bouquet of roses and a box of chocolates-has fully evolved (devolved?!) into a holiday with gifts for everyone. Gummy Bears for your son, a heart T-shirt for your daughter and an iPhone case for your husband? I love to get something small on Valentines Day, but definitely don’t want to neglect my guy. Here are some last minute ideas for the guy in your life- a little (or big) gift goes a long way.
For the Techie Guy:
A wooden inlay brings a natural element to this handcrafted Native Union iPhone 7 case.

Not every guy can pull off these Converse Black Corduroy Chuck Taylors. They’re Uber-hip, and so is the guy wearing these on a beautiful Sunday excursion on the Highline.
For the Practical Guy:
This quartet of hosiery features a pair each in Charcoal Dress Solid, Charcoal/Grey Dress Stripe, Chocolate Fall Marl, and Charcoal Fall Marl. The BOMBAS promise is that every one Pair Purchased = one Pair Donated. These well constructed wardrobe staples feature seamless toes, arch support, reinforced foot bed, and are machine washable. Love the entire brand!
This case is great for the traveler, especially if you carry a bag and don’t just put all of your money in your back pocket (cause he’s no longer a first year analyst). This plus-sized wallet sports four pockets for four different currencies, receipts, etc. I have one myself – it’s essential..
For the Sporty Guy:
Class Pack to Row House NYC
My husband’s current workout regime prominently features Row House in NYC. A 5 class pack is a clutch gift.
Many guys have been raving to me about the Lululemon workout clothes they have been wearing. Lulu lemon for men? The line is definitely NOT just for women anymore. Have him try out these workout pants.
