Punk Rock Romance
We’ll start this list off with the music lover in mind. Think of this as your Valentine’s Day mixtape to help “set the mood.” Too Punk To F*ck features tunes about love from some of you and/or your honey’s favorite punk rockers. It’s got everything from the Dead Kennedys and The Runaways to Stiff Little Fingers and Anti-Nowhere League. If your man isn’t big into punk rock, music in general is always a great gift idea, from vinyl and cd’s available at Amazon to an iTunes gift card, you can’t go wrong with some great tunes to show your love.
For the geek you love, ThinkGeek is a treasure trove of gift ideas. One of our favorites—this ‘Star Trek’ themed pizza cutter, shaped like the Enterprise. Your sweetie’s not a big Trek fan? That’s okay, ThinkGeek has a ton of other gift ideas for the geek in your life, from wood ties (yes, ties made of wood) to this watch that sports both wifi and caller ID. It’s a great place to get a little creative in your Valentine’s Day gift-giving.
Wrinkle-free doesn’t exactly scream romance, but this standing valet from Red Envelope will help your love stay organized ready to head out the door looking his best each morning. This valet holds a coat or shirt as well as a pair of pants. It also features an accessory tray for cell phones, keys, wallet, etc. If you don’t think this gift idea is quite right, check out some of the other offerings from Red Envelope. We love these personalized collar stays and these watch movement cuff links.
The Great America Beer of the Month Club is one of the nation’s longest running beer of the month clubs. If you love a beer aficionado, this monthly subscription is truly the gift that keeps on giving. You can choose a subscription plan from 1 month to 12 months to ongoing until cancellation. Each month your honey will receive 12 bottles of microbrewed beer delivered to their home. If beer isn’t your Valentine’s favorite, you can also check out the wine club, coffee club, pizza club, and many other clubs that might be right up your love’s alley.
It’s hard to go wrong with electronics and gadgets. While maybe not the most romantic, these certainly tend to be practical and usable. And of course you can always count on the fact that while your guy is reading on his Kindle, tuning the world out with his Beats, or playing Madden with his buddies, he’ll certainly be thinking of you. The best part of it all is that right now you can get some great prices on these gifts at Best Buy. But, if you’re not entirely sure of the specific gadget, game, or gizmo to get your man, there’s always the time-tested, trusty gift card option.
And of course, as we told the guys yesterday—if none of these gift ideas seem suitable, there’s nothing wrong with sending a big bouquet of flowers or some chocolates to your man. Roses and chocolate always fit and go with everything! If you have comments or suggestions for Valentine’s Day shopping, let us know in the comments below or on our Facebook page.
