Yes, there are hearts on some of these items– but they are man-approved hearts! Very subtle, masculine hearts...

First of all, men don't like to buy themselves socks. So if you're going to get them a small gift, you can't go wrong with those. If your other half insists on having a recliner, if may as well be this super sleek and stylish one from West Elm. That leather would get better with age! My husband is a huge fan of Jack Daniel's Tennessee Honey, and every guy likes to feel cool by having designated "drinking" glasses. (Or maybe just my husband?) The old-school Stanley thermos is stylish in that I'm-not-trying-to-hard way that most men (and women) are always trying to perfect. It has fantastic reviews on Amazon.
If you're going to buy him boxer shorts with hearts on it, the manliest ones are black and white. Speaking of shorts, I've heard my husband rave on and on about those Under Armour ones above, so they must be pretty good. He wears them all the time to coach football in the crazy Texas heat. That gear clock from ZGallerie just screams Man Cave, doesn't it? Those Man Cans not only come in masculine scents, but each purchase gives back to the less fortunate. Now that's a quality gift.
Lastly, we all know the way to a man's heart is through his stomach. I've given my husband that basket of cookies before– they were gone instantly. That Beef Jerky kit is amazing... I'm definitely filing that away as a future gift idea. I feel like beef jerky is a man food, just like a cranberry walnut salad is a woman food. Right?!
