5 Valentine’s Gifts That Don’t Suck

We know that Valentine’s Day is a commercial holiday, but if you’re going to give into it, don’t give up your dignity. And by dignity we mean, don’t give into buying gifts that suck. Like a red bear with pink hearts that’s sole purpose is to collect dust until your dog rips it off of a shelf and now, you’ve got a big old mess of slobbery fluff to sweep up. Don’t even get us started on those crappy candy hearts. We’ve got some choice words for those that we’ll keep to ourselves to make our mama’s proud.

If you’re celebrating Valentine’s Day, do it the right way. Tell that special someone how much they mean to you and show them that you mean it by giving a gift that, well, doesn’t suck.

Need a little help? Here are our picks.

Valentine’s Day Gifts For Him (Or Her)

Classic Lunch Box

Nothing says “I love you” like this mean, green (or navy) machine. It’s a classic. A favorite. And there is a solid reason why this bad boy is worthy enough for a superhero. In fact, we had laid this one to rest, but after much popular demand, we brought it back out of the vault for a limited time. Don’t sleep on it because it won’t be around for long.

Master Flask

A flask is a flask, but the Master Flask is in a category of its own. This hooch-hauler is refined, tough as nails, and mighty good lookin’ too. It’s made with 1.0 mm 18/8 stainless steel and feels just as good as it looks. Trust us, this one is sure to speak to the heart. If it doesn’t, it will after a few pulls.

Classic One Hand Vacuum Mug

The best way to get to a coffee lovers heart is through their cup of Joe. No one likes lukewarm coffee and that’s why every coffee connoisseur needs a one hand vacuum mug. It keeps coffee hot for 7 hours, in a leak-proof mug ideal for the coffee snob on-the-go.

Classic Vacuum Growler

Just like the coffee lover, beer lovers love their craft beer. Now they can haul 64 oz of the golden goodness in our classic vacuum growler. This growler isn’t your average 5 o’ clock somewhere transporter. It’s designed to keep beer carbonated and cold for up to 24 hours. Now, if you really want to win Valentine’s Day, all you have to do is gift this with a fill of craft beer from your local brewery. Yep, someone’s getting some action tonight!

Classic Vacuum French Press | 48 Oz 

There’s a difference between truck stop coffee and fresh coffee. Don’t believe us? Then give the Classic Vacuum French Press a go. This mighty French press is no match for your average glass press. Its vacuum insulated so it will keep coffee hot for 4 hours, ideal for sipping on caffeinated hot gold in the great outdoors. In fact, forget gifting this one to your special someone. Be greedy and keep this sucker to yourself. Of course, coffee is meant to be shared, but it doesn’t mean you have to give up this fine piece of Stanley craftsmanship. 




The Stanley brand has a rich 100+ year history. Born from inventor William Stanley Jr. who forever changed the way hot drinks were consumed, in 1913 he fused vacuum insulation and the strength of steel in one portable bottle, inventing the all-steel vacuum bottle we know and love today.
