Listening to vinyl records is popular again. If your guy would like to ride the wave, he's going to need a turntable. U-Turn sells great turntables for as cheap as $236. If you have extra spending money from your year-end bonus and really want to treat him this Valentine's Day, this one's well worth a look.

A cool new work bag


This work bag comes with stowable backpack straps, a detachable shoulder strap, and two leather carry handles, so he can choose between three carrying styles. Topo Designs' commuter briefcase, along with the rest of the company's gear, is handmade in Colorado.

A card that tells him how you feel


Don't forget to tell your Valentine you love them; that's really the best gift of all.

You can find Hartland Brooklyn's cards on Etsy; the company's Valentine's Day-themed ones are some of my favourites I've seen so far this year.

A gaming headset


If your favourite gamer loves to play online late at night, a gaming headset is a must-have. The guy you give these to won't have to be worried about keeping you up with a noisy TV, or stay silent when they need to give their teammates instructions.

An engraved shaving set


There are certain things he could stand to devote more time to, and taking care of his skin is probably one of them. This isn't to say he needs to start spending half an hour shaving his stubble every morning, but he should at least know how to shave it the right way and with the right tools. Harry's shaving set is a good place to begin; you can even engrave this one with his initials for a personal touch.

Harry's Engraved Winston Shaving Set, $52.72

Matching underwear


MeUndies' underwear is so comfortable it will blow his mind. Right now, the company is running a promotion where you can get matching underwear for you and your Valentine.

MeUndies Matching Pairs, $55.36

An Echo Dot


Any tech-loving guy will find a lot to like with Amazon's Echo Dot. It can forecast the weather, read an audiobook, order a pizza, tell dad jokes, or any number of things he should find useful.

The Echo Dot is the best value of the Echo family, but if he needs a louder speaker, the original Echo works exactly the same.

Amazon Echo Dot, $65.89

A topical book


Add this book to his reading list: Comedian Aziz Ansari and sociologist Eric Klinenberg take a hilarious and intelligent look at what it's like to date in the technological era.

'Modern Romance' by Aziz Ansari, $14.55

Tommy John

Help him stay stylish and comfortable when he's off the clock. We're also big fans of Tommy John's underwear and undershirts.
