A peek at unique

You don't have to get your husband the same tired box of chocolates year after year for Valentine's Day. This Feb. 14, why not try getting him a present that's a bit more thoughtful and creative? A unique gift that plays to his interests will be used and loved long after the half-eaten box of chocolates has gone stale. 

Ahead, we offer our top non-boring Valentine's Day gift suggestions for husbands. We've found the best items in every category, from fashion to coffee to sports equipment to electronics and more. 

Best men’s fashion

This cotton and polyester T-shirt will have him giggling for sure. The top is tag-less for added comfort and comes in three colors (gray, black and blue) in sizes XS through 3XL. 

Comfort and style go hand-in-hand with this Berber-lined, snap-button top that's great for an outdoorsy gent. A hood will keep him extra warm while the attractive flannel pattern (there are 11 variations to choose from) will make a nice fashion statement. It comes in sizes S through 5XL Big.

These classic Adidas track pants are a staple for any sporty wardrobe. The polyester pull-ons are equally great for working out or just lounging around the home. The drawcord waist pants come in eight color combinations in sizes XS through 5XL Big, with Tall lengths available as well. 

Best coffee makers

According to our Testing Lab, the Espro P7 competes with high-end brands in a more luxury-oriented space where its steep price tag is considered normal. Its heat retention and double filter may make it more effective in brewing good coffee than rivals in this price range. The durable design is available in 18-ounce and 32-ounce versions in six color options.

Most famous for its viral tumblers, Stanley also makes this nifty pour-over set for outdoor excursions. Our tester found it easy to throw in a backpack and perfect for on-the-go use. It's built to last and even comes with a lifetime warranty. 

Best kitchen gifts

Our testers found this cast-iron Dutch oven with a smooth enamel bottom, which comes with a lifetime guarantee, to be worth the splurge. If your husband loves to cook, he'll surely appreciate this kitchen gift, which comes in 10 different sizes and is available in 13 color options. 

Another gift that's sure to please a talented home cook: this 6-inch Japanese Santoku knife. It has a shorter blade and a flatter edge than a chef’s knife, which makes it better equipped for precise cuts. As a fun touch, it's available in four color options. 

Himalayan salt blocks impart their flavor to food, so it helps take your cooking up a notch. It can be used as a flavorful serving tray for fish, meats, vegetables and more kinds of foods. The 12-inch by 8-inch board makes a great gift for home cooks and grilling enthusiasts. 

Best sports equipment and fitness gifts

Commemorate that winning game he's always reminiscing about with a personalized basketball. You can add his team name, any memorable stats and more. There's even the option to add a custom mascot or logo for an added fee. 

This nifty waist pack will be appreciated by runners, bikers and anyone else who wants to store a few essentials during outdoor activities. The water-resistant pouch keeps keys, cash, cards, earphones and other small valuables safe and secure. There's even a headphone hole so you can enjoy music while on-the-go. 

Our testers insist this rangefinder is better than any cheaper model on the market. The highly accurate laser rangefinder accounts for elevation changes and measures the angles of incline or decline, then calculates the slope-adjusted distance. It's a gift that'll be appreciated by any golf enthusiast. 

This 16-piece set, which is suitable for golfers at any level, includes a driver, 3 wood, 4 and 5 hybrid, 6 to 9 irons, pitching wedge and sand wedge, putter, stand bag and four head covers. Though it's a bit of a splurge for a gift, we found it to be a really great value for everything that's offered. 

Best massagers

If your husband works with his hands, this electric hand massager is sure to be a hit. The massage can be customized within six levels to be as intense as you want it, plus it gently heats hands up to 104 degrees Fahrenheit. It's a great remedy for people who suffer from finger numbness, joint pain, arthritis or carpal tunnel pain. 

Rather than a spa gift card, consider a deep tissue massager he can use over and over again. This version has nine different speed settings (3,200 percussions per minute) and eight attachments to give you a perfect, customized massage each time. It quietly applies up to 33 pounds of soothing pressure.

Best headphones and earbuds

Music enthusiasts will love these noise-canceling, over-ear headphones, which use an Auto NC Optimizer to automatically optimize the noise cancellation based on your wearing conditions and environment. It also offers crystal-clear hands-free calling with four beamforming microphones, precise voice pickup and advanced audio signal processing. According to our testers, these headphones are ideal for people who value sound quality above all else, but who also want powerful noise cancellation for work, commutes and flights.

Upgrade his wireless headphones with a pair of these Apple AirPods Pro. The sweat- and water-resistant earbuds offer active noise cancellation. There are three sizes of soft, tapered silicone tips to choose from for a customizable fit.

Best tech accessories

Help him organize his gaming controllers, headphones and other accessories with this beautiful wood dock. It can even be customized in multiple places with various styles of monograms. 

This wireless charger power bank gives your Apple watch new life while you're on-the-go. It's perfect for traveling or other outdoor adventures. The magnetic power bank offers two to three times the life of charge for your watch.

Our testers love this stainless steel firepit, which makes it super easy to enjoy smokeless bonfires in your backyard. The item is highly durable, lightweight at just over 20 pounds, and it catches fine ash in one place for easy cleanup. 

If you want ultra-high quality packed into a tiny device, our testers recommend the GoPro HERO11. The waterproof device offers a 1.9-inch screen and 5.3K video quality. It includes a revolutionary new image sensor, which offers the most expansive field of view ever on a HERO camera out of the box. 

Get the best seat in the house to live concerts, films, events and more. A super-fast processor and high-resolution display with 50% more pixels than the original Quest make this budget-friendly virtual-reality model stand out.
