Ah, the joy of finding a Valentine’s Day gift for your man. If you’ve paired yourself with an outdoorsy guy, you understand the difficulty of finding gifts that they love, but that also don’t break the bank. Outdoorsy stuff is ex-pen-sive! Even though he would never admit it, I can’t deny that I’ve selected a few duds for my husband in the past. However, I have had a few gifting successes, so I thought I would share.
Here’s a list of gifts that my outdoorsy husband loved.
These slippers are a little pricey, but they’re also amazing and last forever. I gave them to my husband for Valentine’s Day 3 years ago and they’re still in great shape! My husband loves how these look, feel, and function. We also bought a pair for my father (who’s sort of a mountain man) and he can’t say enough good things about them.
As women, we might be a tad underwhelmed if our lover gifted us socks for Valentine’s Day, but trust me, your man will feel differently about it. Men seem to care about sock quality a lot more than the ladies. Why? I have no idea.
Want to go a little bigger than socks for Valentine’s Day? Try a nice The North Face Jacket. This is a big brand among the outdoorsy types due to it’s quality. This Apex jacket is perfect for everyday Spring/Fall wear, and isn’t too dressy or too casual.
If you ask me, there is no greater Valentine’s Day gift than coffee that stays hot. Your man can take this outside in cold temperatures and enjoy hot coffee all day. Have small kids? Not only will this mug keep coffee hot while he deals with various parenting situations, it also keeps children from tossing their hot wheels into his cup. (Or is that just my kids?) Fill it with his favorite candy for some added sweetness.
This is a portable cooking system that boils water quickly. Not exactly my idea of a good time, but my husband loves his. Apparently, flash-boiling water in the woods brings men joy. Whatever works!
He can use it over a campfire or on the kitchen stove. My husband has been cooking a lot more since I bought him a skillet for his birthday. We both love the flavor it gives our food, and it’s so easy to start a meal on the stove top and finish it in the oven (without making extra dishes)!
Meal tip: coat some veggies in olive oil, add some chicken or kielbasa, throw them in the skillet and bake. Quick, easy, and delicious!
This is another item that won’t fit into every budget, but, if you can swing it, can be a gift for you, too. He’ll be begging you to NOT give him a back rub when he’s got this bad boy waiting for him.
Because what’s more manly and outdoorsy than a plaid bath robe? Also, it will keep him from getting water all over the bathroom floor. It’s a Valentine’s Day gift for you both!
Just kidding. I’ve been watching too much Outlander. (Still, the link works if you’re interested.)
