Valentine Gift Ideas for Guys:
Memories and Gadgets in One
Intimacy Level: This comes in at a very high intimacy level! If you're not committed and haven't been together for long, this gift may freak him out.
A Silly (and Sexy!) Valentine Gram
There are lots of options for Valentine's grams. Some can be fun, while others can be outright daring and lustful. It all depends on the message you want to send. Oh, and one more very important tip: Make sure he knows who the gift came from! Though hopefully there's no one waiting for him in the wings...
Intimacy Level: Medium. If you know where he works and know he wouldn't feel strange about a package from you showing up there, then go for it. If it's sexy (undies) rather than romantic (flowers), the intimacy level is a bit lower.
A Techno Toy
Some Good Options: Think about gadgets and techno toys like good power tools, personal grooming products, MP3 players, a good watch, a video game for whatever gaming system he owns, an app for his iPhone, etc.
Intimacy Level: Low to medium. The level of intimacy you have to have between you to make this a viable gift depends on how much it costs. The more you spend, the closer the two of you should be.
Tickets to Something He Loves
Along these same lines, another fun Valentine gift idea for guys is an "experience." Lots of companies sell experiences like race car driving, scuba diving, parachuting, and the like. He'll love an exciting experience... just make sure it's something he's into.
Intimacy Level: Medium to high. In order to pull this Valentine gift idea for guys off, you've got to know just what your guy would love to do. And if you plan on attending with him, you have to know you'll still be together whenever the date on the ticket comes around!
Do Guy Stuff
You can also take him out to do something a little more Valentine-y, too. Take a night out visiting parks, great restaurants, drive-in theatres, or other romantic spots. Rent a gorgeous car and take him out for a banana split for two. Or double date with friends who are in a similar level in their relationship a little company eases a lot of pressure. Hey, couple's Put-Put can be fun!
Intimacy Level: Medium to high. You've got to know what he likes to be able to choose the right activity, of course. You also have to be sure that he'll enjoy having you along instead of, say, his buddy Ted.
Valentine's Gifts for Committed Couples
Trips, Cruises, Dinner, Etc.
If you and you guy are committed, some of the best Valentine gift ideas for guys are things you do together-- especially if you have means to travel. From mini-trips like a dinner cruise, to moderate ones like a weekend getaway, to full on vacations, taking a trip together is a great way to grow closer... and give him something he'll love and remember forever.
Intimacy Level: As high as you can get-- except perhaps for jewelry. Or a tuxedo for the wedding.
Valentine's Gift Ideas for
When You're in a New Relationship
Candy. Skip the frou-frou chocolates and go for something fun. Buy a sampling of candy from the year he was born, or just pick him up a grab bag of sweets he loves.
Clothes. Stay away from serious and go for silly. A pair of funny Homer Simpson socks, a cool, funny t-shirt, etc.
A Meal. Cook him dinner-- there's no quicker way to turn this "maybe" relationship into something more serious.
Music. Pick him up a great CD, or, to keep it simple, a gift certificate to iTunes.
Books. Even if he's not a big reader, there's almost guaranteed to be something he'll be into. A thriller. A book of photos of Paris. Movie trivia. The history of the Red Sox. You just have to know what he's into.
Baked Goods. Whether you buy a muffin basket from your local bakery or make a batch of brownies yourself, giving your sweetie some bakes sweets is low-key, fun, and thoughtful. The perfect touch.
No matter what the specifics of your relationship might be, the most important part about a Valentine gift idea for guys is that it truly illustrates that you've tapped into his uniqueness in some way. Be thoughtful. Take your time, and make the gift about him. Try not to read too much into it, and he probably won't either.
