Flowers, chocolates, and jewelry – those are the “typical” gifts when one thinks about Valentine’s Day. But usually the special man in your life isn’t quite into those things. Romantic gestures can go both ways, and that’s why Daily Mom has found some of the most unique and thoughtful gifts to give to your one and only to show him how much you love him. From handcrafted watches and personalized signs to more practical gifts like silicone wedding bands, Daily Mom has plenty of ideas to help give the perfect Valentine’s Day gift.
When it comes to men’s watches there are many options to choose from, and it can be difficult to find a watch that really stands out with a unique design . . . so let us cut through the crowd and help you out. We are obsessed with the entire collection of signature wooden and stainless steel watches by Original Grain. They are gorgeous statement pieces that offer an original look that will fit anyone’s style.
We are particularly drawn to The Barrel. Made of reclaimed American oak barrels that were once used to store bourbon, this watch will be both a timepiece and a conversation piece. The brushed espresso stainless steel is the perfect accent to complement the wood. We also love how versatile this style is. Whether your man is in a suit and tie or jeans and a t-shirt, this watch will be the perfect fit.
The 47mm face is a great size, featuring a water resistant mineral crystal glass cover. Time is kept by Japanese Miyota Quartz Movement. Built to last and stylish, “The Barrel” watch will become an everyday essential for the man in your life.
The watch arrives in a beautiful, engraved wood box for gifting. Ready to buy one for a gift (or for yourself)? Be sure to use discount code: dailymom for 15% off!
Perfect gift for the man who loves a gift that is both fashionable and functional.

For every watch sold, Original Grain plants ten trees, in order to provide both food and jobs for thousands of people around the globe.

Lighten up the mood and turn up the music… all at once with a slight of hand. How hot is that? The simplicity and ease of using light and sound comes in this powerhouse package by Sengled. A revolutionary bluetooth speaker sound system built right into your light bulb. Your home audio and setting the mood has never been easier. Turn it on and turn it up.
The Pulse Link Starter Kit features two Pulse satellite bulbs and one link adapter. Use your starter kit to connect the Link to your TV (via the included 3.5mm aux cable) or your mobile device (via Bluetooth®) and enjoy surround sound through the two Pulse satellite bulbs faster than you can say Happy Valentine’s Day”. Each bulb has a JBL® speaker hidden inside, producing invisible high-quality sound in plain sight. Use your Pulse Link to broadcast audio through your TV or mobile device – toggling between the two using the Sengled Pulse App. You’ll have full control over the lighting (dimming features) and speakers; since they work independently, your desires for setting the perfect mood is only a dial away.
Once your box arrives, set up is literally a quick screw (- in that is)! The bulbs are already paired and ready to go. Remember, this is just the beginning, baby! Two bulbs will get you started, however, when you are ready for the full force of lights and audio action, connect up to six more satellite bulbs (for a total of eight) to not only work independently of the lighting, but to give you surround sound capabilities; no wires, remote controls, or power cords required.
Perfect gift for mood creators who love sound and functional lighting capabilities.
With a strong focus on the daily lives of people, Sengled is dedicated to the idea that the light bulb can be continuously reinvented to make life better. Sengled constantly innovates; the company currently holds nearly 200 patents and has more than 10 years of experience in the LED illumination research, development, and manufacturing sector. Their products are built with simplicity, aesthetics, and ease-of-use in mind. You’ll appreciate the quality of all their products, and their attention to detail ensures that the bulbs not only look great, but are built to last. Thats why they offer a 30 day return policy and one-year warranty for every bulb they sell.
In our experience, men rarely care about receiving gifts on Valentine’s Day. That doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t tap into their sentimental heart with a personalized gift such as this wooden sign that shows how much we love them for all that they do for our families.
Create a one of a kind piece of art using your most memorable dates. This particular wooden sign says, “First we had each other, now we have everything,” and includes your wedding date along with your children’s names and birth dates.
Several sizes and color pallets are available, each made of 0.75″ thick birch wood (although the wood backgrounds are printed wood textures – they are not actual wood slats or pallet boards), and it arrives ready to hang from the installed metal hardware with vinyl bumpers to protect your walls from damage.
Perfect gift to show Dad and your family how much they all mean to you.
