His Must Have’s
Gym Gear: 2POOD 4″ Straight Weightlifting Belt

Use code “CHALKUP” to get 20% off this tee and ALL of their other tees if you can’t pick just one.
Performance Tracker: The WHOOP 4.0
We’re gifting you a free month WHOOP membership and a free WHOOP 4.0. You can either keep it for yourself… or use it as the perfect gift.

Does your man’s gym bag stink? Does he have a hard time finding his jump rope or grips when he needs them for a workout? Meet the Haven Duffel, the most organized gym bag ever and solution to both of those problems. With a separated and ventilated shoe compartment and mesh side pocket for wet/sweaty/dirty things… this is a gift for you just as much as it is for him.

There’s a lot of things you love about him, but his beard is top of that list. Help him tame the mane with the MANSCAPED® Beard Hedger™. With 20 different lengths, he’ll be able to keep his beard trimmed just the way you like it. He’ll get single-stroke trimming with blades sharp enough to cut even the thickest hair. And if you’re going away on a romantic weekend, it comes with a hard shell water resistant travel case so he can bring the manscaping with him!
Accessory: Big Bang Lite Headband by JUNK
He can’t appreciate your full beauty if he has sweat in his eyes. That’s why he needs the Big Bang Headband by JUNK. It’s super soft and stays put so he has no distractions during his workout. And if he’s got those long luscious locks, it will keep them out of his face so he can focus on the task at hand! After using this headband a few times, he’ll feel naked working out without it (good thing it comes in lots of colors!).
Drinkware: YETI Rambler 10oz Lowball
If he loves sipping on bourbon or whiskey, he’ll love this Lowball Rambler by YETI. It’s double insulated to protect hot and cold beverages, with a “No Sweat Design” to keep your hand liquid free. Plus, the YETI MagSlider lid makes it easy to drink, and hard to spill. The ideal drinking companion (aside from you) will be his new favorite cup.
Food: The ButcherBox Premium Steak Box
You know the key to his heart is through his stomach, so why not cook him a fancy night in? The ButcherBox Premium Steak Box comes with an appetizer of meat, entree of meat, and side… of meat.

Accessory: Groove Life Solid Silicone Ring
Are you ready to put a ring on it this Valentine’s Day? Get him the ring that he will wear alllll the time (he might even accidentally fall asleep in it).
