Valentine’s Day Gifts for Dads…from You
This post contains affiliate links. If you make a purchase from one of the links I will make a small commission at no charge to you. I only recommend what I trust.
A recent survey said that 80% of parents give their kids Valentine’s Day presents, while only 59% give their spouse a gift. One could conclude that maybe these spouses just feel comfortable with each other and don’t feel the need to buy gifts.
However, in our family, we love giving each other gifts as an expression of love. We think it’s so important for our kids to see us loving on each other!
So, here are a few of my top Valentine’s Day gifts for dads…from his spouse. You. Some of these I actually bought my husband (either for Christmas or Valentine’s Day) and he loved them. I hope your man does too!
Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Pro
My husband has this watch and loves it! A few generations ago, the programs were clunky and the watches always seemed to un-sync. He has no such complaints about the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5.
Aside from improved functionality, he also loves that there’s an endless supply of watch bands available so he can completely customize his look.
Klipsch Premier RP 450c Speakers
Is your man a big movie buff? Get him the speakers he needs to wow him.
My husband is a HUGE media room guy. He outfitted our basement with a whole sound system that made the experience almost better than a movie theater (I say “almost” because nothing is better than movie theater-bought popcorn).
His current pick for a main speaker is the Klipsch Premier RP 450c Speakers. First of all, they look incredibly classy. Secondly, the quality is fantastic.
Wemo Light Switch
I think every family in America has either a Google Home or an Alexa device by now. If you do, your guy can control the lights by voice-command with the Wemo Light Switch.
Imagine it: he’s sitting in his man-cave enjoying March Madness. He’s got his chips and Mountain Dew, and his chair is in the full recline position. But the lights are on. Instead of walking across the room to flip a switch, he just has to whip out his phone or ask Alexa to turn them off.
The best Valentine’s day gift for husbands in my man’s opinion? A massage. He works hard and sometimes the knots in his back are difficult to ease.
Since giving an hour-long massage with two small children isn’t always the easiest, buying him this heated back massager is a must! With 4.5 stars and over 14,000 ratings, I can trust that it’s a good purchase.
I love You More Wallet Card
If you want “sweet,” look no further than this wallet card. I read this and teared up a little.
The truth is, balancing parenthood and your marriage is not easy. Sometimes, these little reminders are everything. Especially on the rough days.
Ultra HD Car Dash Cam
Is your guy a road warrior?
In an age of crazy drivers, a dashcam is definitely a great precaution. This particular dash cam set contains a rear and front facing camera, and even connects to his phone.
You’re My Lobster Mug
Look, I realize I’m probably dating myself, but I hope you get this reference. This “You’re My Lobster” mug is the perfect Valentine’s Day Gift for dads that are big Friends fans.
My hubby and I still watch this show from time to time. It never gets old!
Versace Eros Flame Eau de Parfum Spray
Perfume is a very popular Valentine’s Day gift for her…why not for him as well? Bring a little Italian luxury into your man’s routine with the Versace Eros Flame Eau de Parfum Spray.
This cologne is a combination of cedar, lemon, vanilla, orange, and rosemary. Which translates to a rich sweet citrus-y and woodsy scent. The cost is very affordable and it has very high ratings from users.
Beard King – The Official Beard Bib
A great Valentine’s Day gift for men…an even better gift for you!
The Beard King attaches around your man’s neck and clips to the mirror, catching all of his beard clippings. When he’s finished, he simply detaches the bib and throws away the clippings. It is so simple, but also so innovative.
If he doesn’t want to pack it up after every turn, the bib is equipped with hoops that allow him to hang it right on the mirror.
This is one of those Valentine’s Day gifts for him that both of you will appreciate.
Yoda One For Me Shirt
Is your guy kind of a nerd? Mine is too!
Aside from the fact that the cult of Baby Yoda is basically the fastest growing religion in America right now, this Yoda shirt is cute, reasonably inexpensive, and it’s totally mushy.
Engraved Wooden Wrist Watch
Engraving a wristwatch is a fantastic Valentine’s Day gift idea. The only issue that I’ve come across is the cost to do it. Enter, this wooden wrist watch. This wristwatch is functional, classy, and it won’t break the bank!
I love the wooden inserts in the band and the space you’re given to engrave a personal message on the back!
What I Love About You Fill In Love Journal
This little book is sure to be a tear jerker or inspire some heated moments, depending on how you choose to fill it out. The What I Love About You Fill In Journal is filled with 112 pages of fill in blank statements describing how you love your spouse. At the very least, this book will help you think about why you love your man. Alternatively, you can purchase the What I Love About Us version, which focuses on your relationship as a couple.
The 5 Love Languages: The Secret to Love that Lasts
I’m saving the best for last. This book is a game-changer for any long-term relationship. If you haven’t heard of it, The 5 Love Languages proposes that every person has a “love language”, a way they like to be loved and a way that they like to show love.
Figuring out each other’s love language can help you strengthen and feel more secure in your relationship.
Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas for Dads from Kids
Even though Valentine’s Day is traditionally for couples, kids often want to get involved in the gift-giving. Many of the gifts below are personalized for dads, but many are also just inexpensive, practical gifts that show they care.
Harry’s Razor Blades Set
Harry’s Razors is inexpensive and provides an even, clean shave at a fraction of the price of big brand types. Other men have also boasted that the grips are much more comfortable as well.
When the kids treat dad to this razor, they’re treating him to a smooth shave. Bonus points: this kit is less than $15!
Why a Daughter Needs a Dad
This book is so sweet! If you’re looking for a good Valentine’s Day gift for a new dad, this book is so sweet.
I got Why a Daughter Needs a Dad for my daughters to give to my husband for Valentine’s Day. In our family, reading is the time we unwind and bond right before the kiddos go to bed. This story is beautifully written and illustrated, and highlights the unique relationships daughters and daddies have.
And, in case you’re wondering, they also have a book for sons!
Tumbler With His Favorite Sports Team
Nothing says “I love you” like his merch from his favorite team. Plus, every time he gazes adoringly at his favorite team’s logo, he’ll appreciate his kids. It’s better than a dad mug.
I love this particular tumbler because it’s insulated, vacuum sealed, and dishwasher safe.
Personalized Leather Wallet
Isn’t this personalized wallet the sweetest? A good leather wallet is another staple of Valentine’s Day gifts for him. This year, take the standard wallet to a new level by personalizing it.
Plus, your child can choose his favorite picture and request it to be engraved on the front.
Pop Up Leather Wallet
Having said all that…if your man isn’t the type to appreciate a personalized wallet, check out this automatic card extending wallet. With the slide of the trigger, his cards will extend above the wallet. No more fumbling. No more pinching cards.
This wallet is totally affordable for any kid’s budget and a genuinely cool Valentine’s Day gift for him.
My husband has the Vulkit Pop Up Wallet and he really likes it. With over 2,000 reviews and 4.5 star rating, I’d say the rest of Amazon does too.
Stainless Steel Tie Clip Set
This isn’t exactly the most sentimental gift, but some dads equate practicality to thoughtfulness.
Everyone knows that it’s the accessories that make an outfit. These stainless steel tie clips will give his attire a polished look for years to come. I love the finish on these tie clips; It looks classy with almost any suit!
Dad Jokes Book
There’s a part of a man’s brain that is unused until he becomes a dad. That’s the side that produces dad jokes.
These dad jokes are laugh-out-loud funny (but mostly facepalm funny…). This is definitely my favorite Valentine’s Day gifts for dads from kids!
The Mug with a Hoop
I think behind every man is a little boy. A highly distractible, easily-amused boy. The picture really says it all! Whether your husband loves basketball ball or simply enjoys the “finer” things of life, this basket ball hoop mug is made to be an unforgettable Valentine’s Day gift.
Bonus points: the kids will love playing with him too!
Trout Soap on a Rope
Would your hubby rather be fishing? I have just the thing to “reel” him in. That’s right, this Trout Soap on a Rope bar!
This gift can either be used for novelty display in his man cave, or practical use. It’s fused with peppermint and eucalyptus oils, so it’s surprisingly refreshing. Either way, the trout soap on a rope is the perfect accessory for a Bass Pros giftcard.
Custom Neon Garage Sign
Does Dad spend a lot of time in the garage?
Your kids can make it truly his with this customizable neon garage sign. Totally within a kid’s budget and the quality is great!
Personalized iPhone Docking Station
Are you noticing a theme with these personalized gifts? I like functionality. This docking station is one of my favorites, simply because it looks classy, it works well, clears up clutter, and, best of all, it’s dual purpose. It’s super handy that he can store his watch, keys, wallet, and phone in one place.
WiFi Digital Picture Frame
With the advent of smart phones and Facebook, visiting the photo center isn’t exactly a priority anymore. While digital images are super convenient, it’s also kind of a bummer when you don’t have the luxury of looking up to see your loved one’s smiling face.
A digital photo frame is the perfect accessory for his office space. With a capacity of up to 16BG, you’ll never have to print a picture again! You can also add photos from anyone connected to the device via the Frameo app. Meaning, if you have more than one child with a smart phone, they can all share their favorite pictures with Dad.
