Valentine's Day will be here son, in all it’s lacy pink glory, and you need to start shopping for the man in your life. If your guy is anything like mine, he's probably already insisted that Valentine's Day "isn't for men." I don't know if they're worried you're just going to buy them roses and lingerie, or what, but having a Valentine's Day gift guide for men proves that there are great gifts for guys that aren’t all candy-coated.
You can always settle for homemade chocolates, his favorite candy, or a coupon book full of massages, but not everyone is the crafty type. And if you’re expecting your SO to gift you with something special, it’d be nice of you to return the favor (And yes, walking into the bedroom wearing some sexy red lingerie totally counts as a gift.)
Even if you don't have a traditional significant other, you may be hoping to bestow some love on your BFF, your dad, your adorable personal trainer, or that co-worker of yours that is just too cute to resist at lunch.Whatever your shopping needs are this Valentine’s Day, our ultimate gift guide for men is sure to have something that suits the special someone in your life on Feb. 14.
