Default 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

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

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

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

that reminds me...tomorrow is my 14th wedding anniversary....

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
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.
