The best Valentine’s Day gifts for men aren’t always socks, ties or a new set of tools. A thoughtful spin on classic categories can impress every type of recipient — think cool cookware for the streetwear aficionado, designer belts for the luxe logo lover, stylish sunnies or dad shoes that don’t scream “dad shoes.”

On that note, we’ve rounded up some of the best gifts for men, whether he’s your dad, husband, partner, boyfriend, son, best friend or colleague. From cozy slippers that let him wear his NFL team pride all season long to sleek shaving kits and the comfiest T-shirts and hoodies from Hollywood-loved brands, we’ve rounded up some of the best men’s gifts for every type of guy — yes, including non-boring versions of classic socks and tools.
