Confession: I find shopping for Valentine's Day irksome all around. It's one thing to stock up on wardrobe staples for a new season, peruse the sale section, or even look for the perfect gift for special occasions. But something about finding a present that "encapsulates" your love for the special people in your life feels like too much pressure. Add on top of that the fact that so many gift ideas can be, well, tacky, and it's no surprise that so many people (myself included) can feel such strong anti–Valentine's Day sentiments. 

Feelings aside, I love being able to shower my loved ones with gifts. And so, to change my relationship with shopping for this holiday, I decided to rip off the Band-Aid and search for the best Valentine's Day gift ideas for him (aka, my special person). While I'm shopping for a partner, the 50 gift ideas ahead can be great to give to any man in your life. So without further ado, here are best non-cheesy presents you can buy at every price point
