CustomMade gift guide: Valentine’s Day gifts for him


Tired of giving him the same gift year after year? It is often said that men can be difficult to buy for on Valentine’s Day. That’s why we’ve collected these five CustomMade projects to help point you in the right direction.

Meaningful money clip Maker: Britta Ambauen

Give him a present that is thoughtful, and timeless, with this personalized money clip. Crafted from solid sterling silver, this piece can be stamped with a special saying, etched with images, and signed with a heart. 

Handmade cutting board Maker: Brandon Taber

Who says kitchen tools can’t be hilarious? We love this handmade maple and cherry cutting board. It can be used to prep his favorite meal, or as a serving tray on game days with his friends. This piece packs a punch that is sure to make him smile.

Sleek silver keychain Maker: Jennifer Vestal

You gave him the key to your heart, now give him a custom keychain to keep it on. This sterling silver keychain is hammered by hand, and can be personalized with your sweetheart’s initials. Each time he sees it, he’ll think of the thought and effort that went into creating a present just for him. 

Genuine leather bookmark Maker: Victoria R.

Made from genuine leather, and hand stamped with his favorite quote, or a heartfelt message, these bookmarks make a truly authentic gift. They can also be used as luggage tags or decor. Bookmarks will vary slightly in color, texture, and patina, making each one unique.

Shipwreck coffee table Maker: Mitchell Sohn

What could be cooler for his man cave than a reclaimed coffee table made from an actual shipwreck? The finish is completely authentic and reveals worn layers of paint, which was re-applied to the ship’s hull throughout its life at sea.
