Valentine's Day Gifts for Him:
We've done a couple posts on V-Day gifts for women— we of course want to keep the women in our lives as happy as possible. Now, let's focus on Valentine's Day Gifts for Men. And just as we advised the men— you can mainly go one of two ways when choosing a gift for your gent: 1.) Traditional 2.) Thoughtful.
Traditional Valentine's Day Gifts for Men: cologne, special cooked dinner, "above average" intimacy (probably involving new lingerie), and home-made or special ordered desserts.
Thoughtful Valentine's Day Gifts for Men are usually pretty simple because A.) usually a guy doesn't expect anything (which of course he shouldn't) B.) women are typically much more observant at seeing wants and needs.
So just sit back and think about what your man is into: fashion? sports? gadgets? grooming? is he a work-out fanatic? does he have a hobby? Purchase him something in that specific area. To get you started we've got a few gift ideas: $25 & Under, $50 & Under, and $100 & Under, starting with $50 & Below, Check it out:

Keep it traditional with heart-shaped jewelry for Valentine's Day.

See more below, ranging from $4 – $6,175.
Valentine's Day doesn't always have to be gifts in girlier colors, amp it up a bit– go black and studded. We're giving you an array of items at different price points: Vera Wang boots, an Alexander McQueen purse, Rachel Roy earrings and more ranging from $14.99-$1800. If you know your lady's style get her a dress and some shoes, if you're unsure some jewelry and a purse is your best bet…
It's that time of year again– Valentine's Day. A day for that special lady in your life. So as always we like to reflect on past ideas and advice… and the words we received a couple years back from a diverse group of women is something you should definitely read.
Generally for Valentine's Day you can go 1 of 2 ways:
Traditional is basically trying to get her the best you can afford of traditional Valentine's Day gifts like jewelry, candy, flowers, and a date. So depending on your bank account that might be earrings from Forever 21, a bracelet from Macy's, a necklace from Tiffany's, or a Harry Winston diamond ring. The jewelry should be accompanied by flowers, chocolates, and a date (usually dinner, maybe dinner and movie, maybe something random and fun– like paintball, a concert, salsa dancing lessons, etc.). If you're one of those guys that doesn't pay attention, it's definitely better to be safe than sorry– stick with a traditional gift.
Thoughtful is what most women truly want. A thoughtful gift is usually something she's mentioned she needed or wanted, or something you observed she really needs (and no I don't mean a new blow dryer or vacuum cleaner).
If you've constantly heard her mention how her high-heels have been killing her feet… get her a couple pairs of flats (maybe even a pair of sneakers). Maybe she's mentioned being stressed and tense…. book her a day at the spa. If you simply listen to her she's bound to mention something she wants, or if you observe you're bound to see something she needs. Maybe her phone is outdated, or perhaps her computer has been spazing out for months, or maybe she's taken up a certain hobby (cooking, painting, playing an instrument, etc)… skies the limit to the thoughtful gifts you can give her.
And if you're really good– you should mix traditional and thoughtful. That's a win win situation all day. Sometimes, depending on the girl, your thoughtful gift may not seem romantic enough to her. If you think that will be the case, then I highly recommend adding the traditional flowers/chocolate/date to your thoughtful gift.
