Finding the perfect gift for your man after a year or even several years in a relationship can be hard. Finding something special can be easy if you get it personalized by engraving, carved, or something you can’t find in any store. Check out this list of the best gift ideas for men.
11 Whiskey Stones
You can get these customized on Etsy with his initials or just about anything else. If you don’t already know, these cubes or stones can be put in the freezer and dropped in a whiskey glass instead of dropping in ice that will water down his drink.

22 Made in Birthday Year T-Shirt
There are a variety of designs of these types of shirts on the internet. My personal favorite was “Made in ____ All Original Parts.” It’s funny even if he isn’t that old, because boys tend to hurt themselves more than women.

33 Cuff Links – Cute personal gifts for him
There are hundreds if not thousands of options for these just on Etsy. You can get his initials engraved or find something really unique that is just for him. I saw camera lenses, cassette tapes, wood ones, and even fishing lure ones.

44 Skate Board
If you haven’t figured it out yet, Etsy is your one stop shop for anything you want customized or personalized. And yes even skateboards! If your man is a skateboarder you have a few options on Etsy to help him customize, however, my favorite was this bamboo skateboard that you can get his name engraved on! Totally rad.
4. Skate Board
This is a great gift if your guy likes building and fixing things. I think I would probably set it on the shelf in his office or something like that. I don’t think I would actually let him use it just because it is something he can keep forever.
66 This Awesome Flask
We’ve all seen the famous black label printed on Jack Daniels whiskey, and this flask mimics the design but instead of “Jack Daniels” at the top, it can be engraved with your boyfriend’s name.

77 Duffel Bag
Perfect for a man always on the go, this embroidered duffel bag can be spotted at the baggage claim, tucked behind the seat of his truck, or tossed in the trunk of his car. It is classic, fashionable, and just the right size.

88 Unique gifts – Copper Coffee Mug
These seem to be everywhere, From Bed Bath and Beyond to Walmart! So why not get your man this hot new trend of a coffee cup and personalize it with his initials. I even saw some on Etsy with a quote engraved in this awesome mug, so initials isn’t your only option.

99 Pocket Knife
I’ve noticed these as a popular groomsmen gift on Pinterest so it must mean men love them. Get him a manly knife with his name carved into the polished wood. He will be so classy and manly he won’t know what to do with himself.
9. Pocket Knife
Again noticed this as a trend for grooms at weddings, but if he loves football get his name on one! He won’t have any of his friends stealing his footballs after their weekly casual games.
1111 A Note Book
Fill it up throughout a period of time and then surprise him with it for a special occasion. The great thing about this gift is that you are the one who makes it personalized. Maybe you could start writing in it the day he proposes to you and give it to him the night before the wedding. He can look to you sweet letters when the cold feet hit.
11. A Note Book
1212 Bobble Head
I have made The Office references before and I am doing it again. If you have seen the show, you know that Dwight has a bobble head that looks like him on his desk and he loves it. Honestly, who wouldn’t love a little miniature version of themselves with a gigantic head.

1313 Customized Ice Cream or Coffee Spoon
I saw these on, you guessed it, Etsy. They had one that said “______’s Ice Cream Spoon” along with a number of other saying options. It will be his personal spoon that he can yell at his kids for using someday.

1414 Personalized valentines gifts for him – Fishing Lure
If you’re looking for personalized valentines gifts for him, this is a lovely choice! This is another thing I would use to decorate the house with personally, but you are giving it to him so he can decide. “You are my greatest catch,” is stamped into a fishing lure and it is just about the sweetest thing ever. If your man loves to fish this is perfect, or even if he doesn’t and you know he will think it is super clever. Ding Ding Ding, you did you good.

1515 Cocktail Mixer
Like the knife, this elegant cocktail mixer will make you man feel so manly and classy he won’t know what to do with himself. Especially when he can ask you, “shaken or stirred” as he is mixing you a drink. Talk about everyone’s dream. And having everything matching with his initial, he will feel like a king.

1616 Book Safe
This seller customizes a book cover to go around a box that has a combination inside! Talk about some sneaky, clever hiding place that he has dreamed of having ever since he was a little kid. He can put it on the shelf, hide it in the top of the closet, or under the bed.
