Why You’re So Awesome By Me Book, $10 at Uncommon Goods

What makes your guy so awesome? Tell him yourself! Let him know why he’s special without all the sappiness – answer statements like, “It’s awesome going to ________ with you,” and “If you were an animal, you’d be ________.” Fierce tiger or lovable penguin? You decide!

Want a date night like no other? Treat him to miracle fruit, and try it together!

Let the tasting begin!

The Redstone Inkblot Test, $14.99 at ModCloth

How well do you know your guy? Better yet, how well does he know himself? These modern twists on the inkblot personality test are a way more fun way to get to know him than decoding his texts, TBH, and each inkblot comes with a personality profile, history and analysis tips!

Drop hints like no other with soothing massage oil. Sure, you’re definitely going to give that special someone a massage as part of your gift, but the best part is that he will probably (definitely) return the favor, and your muscles needed some TLC. Win-win!

Drake ROYALS T-Shirt, $19.90 at Rad

Started from the bottom now we here, started from the bottom now we a chivalrous knight. We don’t even know where to start with how much we love this T-shirt, and you can bet your boy will love turning heads in it, too.

Riot Society Political Party Tee, $24 at Urban Outfitters

Political? Partier? How about both? Chances are the guy in your life has his serious and his fun side, so let him show them both off. Nothing says you care like showing you totally get him!


Bacon iPad 2 Case, $27.99 at Perpetual Kid

In case we didn’t make ourselves completely clear, you can’t go wrong with a bacon gift for a boy (unless of course he’s vegetarian or vegan, in which case, he might just appreciate the irony…?).

Achievement unlocked!

If the guy in your life is over 21 come Valentine’s Day, you might be tempted to buy him his favorite beer for the big day (you know he’d love it). But why give a man a fish when you can teach him to fish, and why buy a man a beer when you can help him brew it himself?! Trust us – endless entertainment.
