valentine's gifts for guysNot quite sure what to get the man in your life this Valentine’s Day? It’s fast approaching, but there’s still time to surprise your boyfriend or husband with something special. Here are some suggestions as to what to buy him for Valentine’s Day. Take a look and check out DexKnows for where to shop in your neighborhood.

Nothing Says I Love You Like Food

Is he always asking you where you want to eat? Surprise him with a date to his favorite eating establishment. Whether wing night at his favorite bar or dinner at a local Chinese restaurant, give him a chance to steer the grubwagon for a night.

Not special enough? Make love his fortune. Better Homes and Gardens suggests sharing chocolate-dipped fortune cookies. You can make your own fortune cookies if you want, and write fortunes to put inside that are personal to you and him.

You can also surprise him with his favorite dessert. If you’re not sure — and you’re on good terms with her — sneak a call to his mom to get some suggestions.

Make It Personal

Make him feel special with a Valentine’s Day gift personalized just for him. Fill a jar with love notes, such as preprinted notes that say why he’s so special. If you want to go a step further, fill it with some romantic suggestions for a special night.

The website uGiftideas offers suggestions such as a personalized love storybook, a sexy activity book and a personalized coffee mug set. Order one of these or use the site to come up with your own ideas. Your imagination’s the limit as you spell out your love and some fun.

A Picture Perfect Couple

Got a bunch of photos and not sure what to do with them? Create some prints or frame a few to give him a handmade chronicle of your love. Grab photos of special outings that serve as highlights of your time together. Make a collage of them or use just a few.

If you really want to surprise him on Valentine’s Day, stop by a photography studio that does boudoir photography and get some sexy photos taken just for him.

Gifts for the Tech Lover

In love with a tech lover? It may be tough sharing him with the latest techno gadgets, but if you dare, you can always choose to give him tech this Valentine’s Day.

Consider the latest smartphones such as an iPhone or Nexus, depending on his personal preference. There’s always gifts such as a tablet. Make sure that as soon as that present is activated, your phone number and email pop up so he remembers who matters.

Is he a music lover? Find an mp3 player that he can use to play back his favorite tunes. Consider going a step further and putting some songs on it that remind him of you and him.

These are just some ideas. Hopefully they jumpstart your creative thinking as you consider how to show your special man how you love him this Valentine’s Day. Remember to stop at DexKnows to see what local retailers are available to help you.
