2. Leather Wallet — RFID Blocking
Replacing his trusty wallet that’s been through years of being used and sat on with a nice new leather one is a special way to say “I love you,” this Valentine’s Day. Due to its durable leather, this wallet from GTDK won’t have to be replaced constantly. RFID blocking technology is included too, so no matter where you are or where you’re shopping, you can rest assured that your information is safe. Reviewer Timothy said, "This wallet is very pretty and has plenty of slots to hold my cards. It is well designed and opens in a logical order with my license on top. There are two pockets suitable for currency, so I am using one for coupons. Although it can hold lots of stuff, it is not bulky and slips in and out of my pocket easily, but not so easily that it could come out accidentally."

4. Delectable Chocolate Truffles — Godiva Assortment
Skip the grocery store boxed chocolates, and give him a high-quality assortment of decadent truffles.

It is a delicious mix of dark, milk, and white chocolates, so he’ll have plenty of options to choose from. Reviewer Ally Swanson loved this gift, "This 12-piece Godiva Signature Truffle Gift Box was truly luxurious and delectable. I was very impressed with this selection of truffles and the high quality taste. This Signature Box had a large variety of truffles that offered a well blend of chocolates. Although these chocolates had many differences they all seemed to go well together as they complemented each other."

9. Calvin Klein Eternity for Men
This classic cologne never fails to impress. Its scent is warm and woody with fresh notes of mandarin and lavender. The bottle is small enough to travel with, and meets the TSA’s requirements for fluids. You’ll love how he smells and he’ll have a simple, timeless cologne for any occasion. One buyer had this to say about the cologne, "Eternity for men is never overpowering, yet it's sensual, warm and woodsy. It is inviting, and I really like it. My husband likes it because he can wear it to work or for an evening out and never feel like he has overdone it. It's a modest, yet masculine and pleasing scent. For men (or even their ladies) who dislike a strong scent, this is perfect."

10. Travel Bag Duffle — Made from Leather and Canvas
For work or play, he needs sturdy luggage that can keep his belongings together and tidy when he travels. This expandable suitcase gives him enough room for gear and equipment, and has a removable hanging garment bag if he's on a business trip. With the outside being tear-proof and stain resistant, he'll have a reliable go-to piece for all his travels. Maybe this’ll be the start of planning a special trip together! An Amazon review form Jeff Chandler said, "Having acquired over a million frequent flyer miles, I'm pretty particular about luggage. This one is the best I've every owned. It's extremely light. It rolls smoothly — I mean really smoothly — through the airport. It's almost effortless to push this thing. The charger pack allows me to sit anywhere in the airport without fighting for a spot next to the charger. The zippers are big and seemingly bullet proof. It fits nicely in the overhead bin, and the reduced weight makes it less dangerous to get it up there without hurting someone."
