Valentine’s Shopping For Guys
It’s an ordeal to find the perfect Valentine’s gift for the perfect lady. But, hold on there, partner. It’s just as difficult (more?) to find the perfect Valentine’s gift for the (he’s trying) perfect guy. So we’ve laid out some obvious — and not so obvious — guy gifts.
1) The Thing They Collect
All men collect something. Whether it’s watches, wallets, t-shirts, movie posters, or tattoos, all men find a thing and buy every single version of it they can find. It’s time to add your own flavor to the collection! ThinkGeek can get you started on finding a thing that your man doesn’t have yet.
2) Something sex-related
Whether it’s lingerie for yourself that you know he’ll like, a naughty film you two can enjoy, some saucy bedroom accessories like creams or oils, or just the performing of an act in the bedroom that you don’t normally perform, bedroom surprises are great gift ideas for men. RomanticGifts.com (you can Google it yourself, you naughty thing) can get you started.
3) Video Game
If your man loves video games, regardless of how you feel about them, buy him one. Find out what game he thinks looks amazing but doesn’t own, and get it yourself. Video games for men can be a guilty pleasure, and it’s always better when someone else buys you a guilty pleasure. Check Game Stop to find out release dates.
4) USB Mix Tape
How adorable is this idea? It’s a USB drive disguised as a mixtape! Break out your ITunes and make your man an old school mix tape that he can listen to while pining for you.
5) Flowers? Yep.

Men are so often the givers of flowers, so why not turn the romantic tables on them and give them a bouquet? Getting a dozen roses and bringing it to your face for that first sniff is a joy that men should not be denied.
