We all know the guy that is so hard to buy anything for, whether it be a holiday or not.


With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, I did a little digging to come up with a small list of Valentine’s Day Gifts for that hard to buy for man in your life. If your spouse, boyfriend or significant other is anything at all like mine, he has everything under the sun! And he also doesn't want any of that gushy stuff like flowers and candy! So, with that being said, I’m thinking a little outside the box on these items. They are certainly for the more practical man in your life, and not romantic by any stretch of the imagination. And the really cool thing is that they're all made right here in Aroostook County! Here goes:

  • Any man who’s from Maine would love Maine made maple syrup! Spring Break Maple & Honey is just the place to get his syrup from. Their maple syrup is made on their farm where the mineral enriched soils and cold temperature give them some of the best tasting syrup on the market. They’re located in Southern Aroostook County and the really cool thing is that you can order online and have it shipped right to your door.
  • How about a Pit Bull Bumper Guard for his truck? MooseBrook Metal Works can hook you up! These bumper guards are made from 1/4" plate steel and have a 2" tube support for torsion strength. They can make them to mount to Boss or Fisher standard push plates. Easily mounted or dismounted in 5 minutes. Mounting bolts included. It’s sure to be a gift like no other!
  • Does your guy love snowshoeing? Get him some Maine made snowshoes from Theriault’s Snowshoes. Their snowshoes are made from scratch with raw materials, using molds and tools that we designed and produced. Their methods include selecting the right ash tree in the forest, cutting and forming wood pieces to be used for the frame, fleshing, scraping, and cutting rawhide, and finally weaving rawhide on the ash frame with our own three way patterns.
  • Have a toothpick holder carved for him by Woodcarver Nancy Paradis at Whittle People Carvings based in Cross Lake, ME. She creates whittle people to bring a little humor into the world. Order your spouse something totally unique today.

Now these are just a few of the ideas that I’ve come up with for Maine made Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas for him. I know they’re not super romantic or anything, but honestly, what Maine man is?
