Our Top 16 Valentine’s Day Gifts For Men
Find the perfect gift for that special guy in your life
When searching for gifts for people we care about most, an unexpected dilemma often arises: we don’t know what to get them–especially men. We want our gift to be more than an object, but rather a meaningful gesture to show our love–especially on Valentine’s Day.
If you’re finding yourself in this conundrum while searching for Valentine’s Day gifts for your guy, you’ve come to the right place. Here at The Nopo, discover hundreds of handmade pieces, crafted by artisans from Morocco, Colombia, and Mexico. Each piece is made with intention and holds its own unique story. Here’s a gift guide that’s anything but generic for all the different types of guys out there.
Gifts For The Home Chef
For the gourmand who loves trying new things in the kitchen, the Molcajete Mortar and Pestle Set is great for the creative cook who wants to make their own spice blends, sauces, or fresh salsa verde. The Testas Cutting Board, handmade from 100% ash wood, doubles as a fully functional cutting board and beautiful serving board for charcuterie and more.
Gifts For The Fashion-Forward
For the one who’s always effortlessly well-dressed (or needs a little guidance). Drape your love in this Black Ruana Shawl, hand-loomed from organic cotton–a unique addition to any man’s wardrobe. Or adorn him with this Hammered Bangle Bracelet, an easy, everyday accessory made by master silversmiths in Morocco.
Gifts For The Entertainer
For the life of the party who’s always looking to squeeze a little more juice out of life. Any man whose goal is to maximize the enjoyment of his guests will find plenty of use for the Dancing Mezcaleros Cups, perfect for sharing a toast with a close friend. This handmade Domino Set is both a relaxing after-dinner activity and a one-of-a-kind coffee table piece for an inviting living room.
Gifts For The Academic
For the one who’s always reading, working on a project, or coming up with a new idea. The handmade Leather Laptop Sleeve –melding functionality, and exquisite design–is divided into four compartments so that he can store documents, a laptop, and any other creative materials he may be carrying around. And for displaying all of his (impressive) literature, the Piedrafuego Bookends, inspired by the Mexican architect Luis Barragán, is crafted from volcanic stone to enhance the look of any bookshelf.
Gifts For The Romantic
For the one with a soft side. Côté Bougie’s Black Edition Scented Candle, which comes in three rich, deep aromas is the perfect gift to ignite a mood–anytime. This Surco Incense Holder, made from concrete, is another way to add olfactory delight to his space while also serving as a striking decorative piece for his desk or a table. And if you want to give your man luxurious comfort, this Cotton and Linen Robe is both light and cozy.
Gifts For The Outdoorsman
For the adventurer whose idea of a great weekend is one spent outside. This handwoven Texture Cotton Towel is ideal as a blanket for lunch after a long hike, a cozy yet light layer near a campfire, or of course, a towel after a swim in a cool river or lake. And the Oaxaca Wool Curvy Top Hat transitions effortlessly from a day in the countryside under a blazing sun to a dressed-up night on the town. If your man has a green thumb, this Plant Pot & Stand is a unique piece of art in its own right that adds greenery to an office, living room, kitchen, or patio.
Gifts For The Traveler
For the nomad eagerly awaiting his next trip. The Pachuco Duffle Bag, made from smooth leather and expertly constructed to last a lifetime, is the ideal bag to accompany him on his spontaneous weekend excursions. Add the multifunctional Passport Pouch Wallet into the mix, and your man will be traveling in no time (all things permitting!) with style and ease.
