We love the idea of romantic valentine’s gifts for him that don’t break the bank, which is why we scoured the web for some of the coolest ideas for the lucky man in your life that all happen to be under $50. Of course, we won’t discourage a bigger, more expensive gift, of course, but we think these still get the Valentine’s Day message across. Just don’t forget the card!
All gift ideas have been determined by our editorial staff. There is no compensation for recommendations. Cool Mom Picks is an Amazon and Reward Style affiliate.

Gourmet bonbons in keepsake book box ($24/6, $49/12, Stick with Me Sweets)
You think chocolates are just for the ladies? Nuh-uh. These are about the most outrageous handmade bonbons we’ve ever had the pleasure of trying and you can even customize a box of 6, 12, or 24 in flavors like Bourbon Maple Pecan.

The packaging from this artisanal NYC chocolatier is sweet and great place to stash cufflinks, love notes, or you know, something more racy. Your call.
