Unique finds that say "I like you... a lot!"

Whether you just started dating someone or have been with your man for many years, it can be hard to know what gift to get your boyfriend for Valentine's Day. Much like that old Facebook relationship status option, it's complicated—men aren't always easy to read! You don't want to go too cheesy, and you most definitely don't want to show up to your Valentine's Day date empty-handed, particularly if he's gone the extra mile for you.

That's precisely why something thoughtful is the best option for a Valentine's Day gift for your boyfriend. There are plenty of cute things (think: a matching set of coffee mugs) and creative finds (from cooking and beer-making kits to custom socks and neck massagers) that will fit the bill. You could also go a slightly more sentimental route with a personalized photo frame or a custom book. Or, if you’re not sure if a material item is the right way to go, surprise him with an experience you can do on Valentine's Day. A virtual cooking class or a romantic staycation in which you try to tackle as many classic movies as possible may be just the thing.

To get your juices flowing and inspire your shopping, we’ve rounded up 60 last-minute ideas for him that you can feel good about adding to your cart. Oh, and no matter what you choose, don't forget to pair it with a DIY card!

Does your boyfriend love the idea of tattoos but when it comes to the longterm commitment, he backs away? Well here is where Ephemeral Tattoos, the world's first made-to-fade tattoo ink, come in.
