Here are 3 creative Valentine’s gift ideas for music lovers, adventurers and foodies.

For The Music Lover

Most men enjoy music, but some are fanatical about their favorite bands. If your guy is heavy into music, consider a portable turntable and some vinyl records for that true vintage feel.

Vinyl records are coming back in a big way and you can easily find a record player for under $100. And surprisingly, most new bands also put out vinyl so you’ll have no problem finding his favorite record — new or old — on vinyl. If you’re not sure if he’ll like the whole vinyl experience, hold off on turntable and just splurging on the record. If it turns out that he’s not into record collecting, you can frame the vinyl record and put it up on your wall as art.

Another option: buy him tickets to see one of his favorite bands perform. Even if the show isn’t coming to your town for a few months, it will be something both of you will have to look forward to. And if he collects concert ticket stubs, you can put the tickets you get him in his own personalized ticket album.

For The Adventurer

If he loves to travel and explore new places, he’ll love an action camera to capture the most epic moments of his adventures. There are plenty of action cameras to fit any budget, with 4K Ultra HD options for under $100. The most popular choice is the GoPro camera, which comes in three different models staring at around $200, however Polaroid’s Cube+ and the Mobius Mini Sports Cam are both good options below $100.

Another option: take him on a romantic getaway to either his favorite spot or a place he’s always wanted to go. It will be an adventure gift the two of you can enjoy together while making some fun, new memories. You can present your adventure gift along with a personalized photo album or a beautiful romantic travels canvas map where you can chart all of your romantic travels. You can buy a world map or a U.S. map, each of which comes with 100 pins so you can pinpoint all the places you’ve seen together.

For The Foodie

For the food-loving guys, a new kitchen gadget or tool will be right up their alley. Look for something unique, like this indoor smokeless grill or handheld food smoking gun. Or get him something he’s always wanted, like a nice steel knife set or an espresso machine (you can find a decent one for around $100; our favorite is the Nespresso Inissia). Or better yet, go for something inexpensive but totally unexpected and fun, like this Bicycle Pizza Cutter or Pulled Port Bear Claws Shredder.

If he’s more into experiencing food, rather than making it, take him out to a new restaurant he’s been wanting to try. Or surprise him with breakfast in bed and a cute Valentine’s coffee mug, like our adorable “We go together like…” custom mug set that’s available in your choice of nine unique designs. Add you names and these will be your favorite coffee mugs to use each morning.
