What to Get Your Guy for Valentine's Day: 6 Top Ideas

--Guest Post By Adam B.

One of the hardest gifts to get a guy is a Valentine's gift. On Valentine's Day, you want to get the man in your life a great gift that shows how well you know him. At the same time, you are probably on a limited budget after spending a lot of money over the holidays. This doesn't mean you can't find him the perfect gift that says I love you and know you well.

Writing from a guy's perspective, it really is the thought that matters the most. We don't care how much you spend on a gift; rather we look for gifts that show you put some thought into. With this in mind, I can offer these suggestions for gifts that will not leave your boyfriend/fiancé/husband disappointed:

Watches - While some men choose to limit the amount of jewelry they wear, almost every man loves a good watch. Not only will he wear your watch often, but you can find a nice watch that fits into any budget.

Sunglasses - With spring right around the corner, it's likely that your man can use a new pair of sunglasses that encompass the spring's fashion trends. You can even get him a pair that matches his personality, such as aviators for his "bad boy" side. This will show you truly know him and his personality. This is also a gift that he will wear frequently, possibly every day sunny day!

Wallet - If there is one gift that a man will always be appreciative of, it's a wallet. Most guys will have a few wallets for different occasions. If you see that his wallet is overflowing, or he simply never carries one, get it for him. Often, he doesn't realize he needs one, but can't live without it once he gets used to it.

Personalized Energy Bars - If your significant other is into sports, fitness, or the outdoors, this is the perfect gift for him. You can personalize an energy bar for him based on the ingredients you think he will enjoy. You can even give them a romantic name so that he thinks of you before heading off to the gym or to play a sport.

Romantic Coupon Book - This gift is extremely thoughtful if you are strapped for money or your guy has everything you can think of. You can create a coupon book full of things he can redeem at a later date, such as a backrub or a kiss.
