Your husband, boyfriend, partner, friend or any other man in your life is lucky to have someone like you — someone on the hunt for a thoughtful Valentine’s Day gift.

The gifts

It smells like Valentine’s spirit: Essential oil diffuser, Fern & Petal | Sage

Valentine’s Day gifts that husbands, boyfriends and partners will love (3)

Why we love it: Essential oils can have many great effects aside from making a room smell like a yoga studio — which we love as well. Science shows that lavender oils can improve sleep, according to the journal Nursing in Critical Care, and as reported by Healthing.ca.

Essential oil diffusers can bring calmness to a bedroom, set the scene in a bathroom or help cover up the odour of an exercise space — a present for all. We’ve tested and recommend essential oils and diffusers from Fern & Petal and Sage because both brands offer high-quality products and are Canadian. We particularly appreciate Sage’s selection of diffusers and its lifetime guarantee.

Price: Starting from $76
Where to buy: Fern & Petal | Sage

Dapper and tapered: ABC Jogger, lululemon

Valentine’s Day gifts that husbands, boyfriends and partners will love (4)

Why we love it: These joggers from lululemon are technical enough to be worn during a workout but are tapered enough to sport every day. They are sweat-wicking and super-soft and come in three lengths to best fit your guy. He’ll likely love them and want more colours, perfect for future gift-giving celebrations.

Price: $138
Where to buy: lululemon

Keep it cool: Large ice mould

Valentine’s Day gifts that husbands, boyfriends and partners will love (6)

Why we love it: A perfectly large, slow-melting ice cube or ball may exist for a glass of whiskey or bourbon, but it can elevate any co*cktail or drink. This particular tray has three spots for cubed ice and three for spherical ice. Also, if your partner is a scientist, biker or another personality that could like a skull, this mould is pretty cool too.

Price: Starting from $26
Where to buy: Large ice mould | Amazon – skulls

Sounds perfect: SoundLink Revolve (Series II) Portable Bluetooth Speaker, Bose

Valentine’s Day gifts that husbands, boyfriends and partners will love (7)

Why we love it: Whoever brings the speaker, controls the music. So gift with caution. This Bose speaker is dust and water-resistant, super loud and has a battery life of up to 13 hours. The speaker is great for picnics, barbeques, beach days, hikes and other fun outdoor activities that may face the elements, but can embrace the music.

Price: $279.99
Where to buy: Amazon

Love a classic: Lindt chocolate

Valentine’s Day gifts that husbands, boyfriends and partners will love (8)

Why we love it: World-renowned professional taster, Beth Kimmerle, said that Lindt is one of her favourite packaged chocolates because of its quality. She also called out Dove chocolate, but packs of those sweet treats seem to be hard to come by and therefore more competitively priced on Amazon.
Price: From $8
Where to buy: Amazon – Lindt | Amazon – Dove

Massage that keeps on giving: Theragun Elite

Valentine’s Day gifts that husbands, boyfriends and partners will love (9)

Why we love it: Gifts are meant for sharing with the gifter, yes? A couple of chocolates here, a daily turn with the Theragun…The Elite Theragun could be enjoyed by most people as it can dig into and massage muscles. It’s quiet too, so you don’t have to announce it to the house when you’re borrowing this thoughtful and useful gift. There’s also the more affordable Atome Mini Massage Gun that we’ve tried and it certainly does the job.
Price: $549
Where to buy: Theragun | Atom Mini Massage Gun ($269)

Love them to Reese’s Pieces: Reese’s Lovers gift box

Valentine’s Day gifts that husbands, boyfriends and partners will love (10)

Why we love it: What to get the peanut butter to your jam? Peanut butter and chocolate, of course. We’re not sure which pair is more iconic. Reese’s peanut butter cups are delicious, but a box of a variety of Reese’s creations, that’s extra special.
Price: $17
Where to buy: Amazon

Spice it up:Hot Stuff, Baskits

Valentine’s Day gifts that husbands, boyfriends and partners will love (11)

Why we love it:If you’re looking to send some love, Baskits is a Canadian-owned company that ships across the country. This Hot Stuff package is the perfect present if you have a hot sauce fanatic on your eyes — which is great, as long as you keep the hot sauce away from your eyes.
Price: $75
Where to buy:Baskits
