To help, the Domaine editors have hand-selected 25 gifts that will do the trick (and in style). Shop our top picks for the men in your life below.
Kenyon City Grill ($475)
"If your mister is an urban dweller who wishes he could grill year-round, Kenyon’s portable City Grill, which is both flameless and smokeless (and can be used indoors or out), is just the thing for him. Did we mention it heats up to 600 degrees in just seven minutes? Talk about a hot gift." — Julia Millay Walsh, managing editor
Crafted Taste Monthly Gift Subscription ($130)
"For a unique gift, this craft cocktail kit subscription hooks your guy up with the recipe, spirits, and other ingredients you need to create a unique cocktail each month. Help him discover new drinks, master his bartending skills, and expand his spirit knowledge. Bonus: Each kit comes with full-sized ingredients, enough so you can benefit too!" — Liz Lynch, senior editor
Kaikado Tea Canisters ($140 and up)
"Valentine's Day, if nothing else, is the perfect time for indulgences you'd never treat yourself to. Know a lover of tea? This traditional Japanese chazutsu is pretty darn fancy (in a purpose-built kind of way), and will patina gorgeously over time." — Dana Covit, editor
Obeah Encens Sacré Room Spray ($60)
"Candles aren’t for everyone, but thankfully Obeah’s room sprays create a sexy mood without the flame. I’m a big fan of the New Orleans-inspired scent Encens Sacré, which marries smoky, resinous frankincense with herbal bay leaf and davana. It’s woodsy, masculine, and totally man-approved." — Julia Millay Walsh, managing editor
Simone LeBlanc Noble Tastes Box ($200)
"For when you want to enjoy the fruits of your gifting, too, this beautifully indulgent box ticks all the boxes: It includes artisan salami, smoked alderwood sea salt, extra virgin olive oil, a potent blend of coffee, a wooden cutting board, plus truffles with major heat." — Dana Covit, editor
ABC Carpet & Home Martini Mixer ($100)
"For a gent who likes martinis, this sleek modern mixer is the embodiment of style. With a beaker, strainer, and mixing spoon, this stainless steel gift is a handsome bar addition, no matter how often he shakes and stirs." — Julia Millay Walsh, managing editor
