    What are some romantic Valentine's gift ideas for husbands/boyfriends?

    There are tons of gift ideas out there for women. But what about for men? I know there's the regular stuff like ties, socks, electronics, or sports tickets. What about for the more romantically inclined? You can only give so many coupons for sensual favors or candlelit dinners before it starts getting predictable.

    So let's have your most romantic ideas for gifts a husband or boyfriend. I'd love to hear from both girls and guys on this.

    I always bake for my sweetie on Valentines Day.  Usually I make strawberry heart shaped cupcakes, but this year I think I am making him a strawberry cheesecake.

    Ammunition. Better yet, take him out to Pearl River and go target shooting with him. Or rent a boat and help him find that alligator. Maybe a telescope, 'cause you know he's into astronomy. I know, you could watch the Godfather trilogy with him. Include popcorn, beer, those brownies you make.
    I probably shouldn't answer this one, should I sweetheart?

    One must differentiate between 'romantic' and 'erotic'. They are not the same, and are often confused.

    Romance has everything to do with sentimentality, while eroticism has everything to do with sensuality. Can these cross over? Of course. For example, a sentimental emotion surrounding a long favored perfume.

    So: a romantic gift may be framing a photo of sentimental value, or making a scrapbook, or going to a location of a first kiss or meaningful conversation. An erotic gift could be anything from the candles and sexual favors you mention to special silky lingerie.

    Many guys like the same romantic things ladies like, but do not admit it. I love to get flowers, because I love flowers.

    One of the most erotic gifts is to decide to add novelty to your sexual repertoire. It does not have to be huge or dramatic, or even 'kinky', just a sexual behavior that is new to you as a couple.

    As a husband I would love any thing that my wife could make by herself.

    It's really simple.
    Listen to what he wants, materially speaking, like a jersey or something like that and then incorporate sex and food into that equation.
    So get a new sports jersey, a steak and grill that baby up. When he comes home, slip on that jersey and plate up that filet Mignon and hold onto your flippin' hat!

    I'd definitely say to avoid anything like pictures or scrapbooks or poems, etc. Most guys don't really like that stuff. Give the guy something useful--maybe a set of dumbbells or something. Or simply ask him what he wants. I'd rather my girlfriend ask me what I want and get it for me than her try to surprise me with a lousy gift. Maybe cook him his favorite meal and/or desert for the night too. Mixing things up sexually is usually an appreciated complimentary gift as well

    Guys like something sensual/ romantic. It's hard to pull off honestly. So I am thinking dinner over candles, in our home. But with a strip tease later. If your guy loves you he doesn't care about your love handles or cellulite, he just wants to see you naked and grinding on him!

    Treat him to a day of wine tasting at a local winery and then buy him the most expensive bottle you can comfortably afford.

    Men are just as sensitive as women – in most cases simply too shy to admit it! While material gifts are always wonderful to make Valentine's Day extra special, the centerpiece of the evening is really in the details.

    choose the restaurant you'd like to take your gentleman to and make reservations. Buy a smaller gift – a beautiful Moleskine notebook for the deep thinker, an engraved stainless steel hip flask for the party animal, or perhaps an iPod, Nintendo DS, or PSP for the geeky gent – and have it wrapped and brought out with the appetizers.
    Be sure to include a personal, heartfelt card. Tell him how you really feel about him (remember, play nice!). Bring the present in to the restaurant by yourself previous to the time of your actual reservation and speak to the wait staff.

    A scavenger hunt smile
    The girlfriend or wife would leave clues around the house and have the husband find them and "follow the trail" which would lead all over the house, criss-crossing or zig-zagging until he found the "easter egg" of his girlfriend/wife who is dressed sexily (not slutty) and lying on the bed.  Perhaps the trail leading to her would be of her clothing.  In the room would be candles and/or incense, maybe even rose pedals on the nice satin or silky sheets. Perhaps she would be in a garden tub with floating candles.

    I don't have a boyfriend but I guess, they'd appreciate any effort you could give.
