It happens every February. The decorations are taken down, the New Year’s resolutions are broken, and there we are, staring down the barrel of a holiday that can make even the most stoic among us break into a cold sweat – Valentine’s Day. Now, though we girls have it pretty easy (flowers, chocolates, diamonds, are all fair game), what on earth do you get for that special man in your life? Whether he’s a tech-savvy genius or a whiskey connoisseur, I’ve got you covered. With 35 unique gift suggestions, rest assured, this Valentine’s, he won’t be disappointed.
Don’t worry, I won’t be proposing an oversize teddy bear or heart-shaped boxers (though if that’s your guy’s thing, more power to him!). This is a guide for gifts that your sweetheart will actually enjoy. I’ve made my way through the overwhelming labyrinth that is the male mind and have come up with solutions that will make him not only love his gift, but also spark that glint in his eye that says, ‘She really gets me!’.
