General chatter - Valentine's Day gifts (for men, especially)

I'm looking for interesting, unique, cool, non-electronic, experiential, romantic gift ideas that can be applied to the man in my life. My husband feels loved when I give him gifts, and he's always enjoyed Valentine's Day more than I do--he's fairly sentimental. (And I'm not much for gift expressions of romance.) So I want to make him feel loved this year. Ideas?

I'm getting my bf a watch. It's really the only way a man gets to adorn himself, and he once told me that it's like his jewelry

Swiss Army knife. It's red (so good for Valentine's day) and he can always be handy for you! And guys loooove being handy.

I will probably get my husband a new skin for his laptop, or some kind of ipod accessory!

Angie always knows what to get me ;)

She gives me the same thing every year :love:

She just puts smelly stuff on it and wraps it in something from Victoria Secrets :love:

I get the same thing for Christmas ~ New Years ~ my birthday ~ cleaning house ~ laundry.....

that reminds me...tomorrow is my 14th wedding anniversary....:love: ;) :love:

If I am in a better money situation at valentines day I would love to buy my boyfriend a nice size giftcard to use for Cornwell, snap on etc tools. He is a diesel mechanic so tools to him are like computers to office people, and I think he gets sort of excited to buy tools.

my dh also has a valentines day birthday. which means- we do his bday and not valentines day. oh well- never much into that holiday anyway.
i always get him a little candy or something though.
maybe make him a tasty (healthy) dinner? i always liked the idea of a love coupon book- you know good for one massage, good for one whatever :D
and of course- the gift EZ thinks he's getting is always a good one. can never go wrong with that! ;)

It's a surprise, but I booked an evening of dog-sledding in the mountains for us. It includes a dinner cooked under the stars as well. Don't tell but I used my visa points to book us a hotel for the night as well. I can't wait!

My husbands birthday is in less than 2 weeks and he doesn't want anything but it'd be nice to give him a little something. We don't do valentine's and generally we don't exchange gifts. I did buy him a couple movies (that weren't on sale! gasp!) for Christmas. He already thinks he has too much stuff.

I usually go buy a box of those kid's valentines, and attach a white lindor chocolate to each one. Then I hide them all over the place, in places he always goes into....it's kinda fun to watch his face when he opens the oatmeal container and finds a valentine and chocolate inside. He said the best was when I hid one in the coffee container.....he said white coffee chocolate was pretty good :lol:

Sometimes it takes a few days to get them all.....but its fun and it always makes him smile.

McKenziesmomma It's a dog sledding tour group that operates out of Banff, Alberta Canada. Their website is www.maddogsexpeditions.com We only live about 90 mins from the mountains, which is awesome. If you ever head up to Canada; the Banff/Lake Louise area is one of the most beautiful places in Canada.

I some how managed to use my visa points to book us into the Banff springs Hotel. Check out the links for pictures

I was going to make my bf a basket of assorted goodies that he likes. He has a big sweet tooth. (Damn him for having the fastest metabolism I have ever seen!!)

I am always the one who plans everything out, so I am hoping that my bf is going to plan something nice and romantic for V day.

My bf always gets something from fredericks as well. Vickis will just not hold the girls in place. This year i think it will be torrid though.

I dont even remember what i got him last year. HmMm Its usually all about the lady so i like to give him a massage and i make chocolate covered strawberries. Yumm. Im not all about the gifts for V day im more about being romantic and focusing on our relationship.

I've always liked VS, though lately I've become a big fan of Trashy Lingerie. No valentine for me this year, but I just might buy myself something beautiful anyway:
