Shopping for men is difficult. Shopping for Valentine's Day gifts for him is even more difficult. Although your significant other may appreciate chocolate, he surely will not be amused by flowers, heart-motif clothing, or the obligatory Valentine's plush. The urge may be to buy something for him that is in your own taste, but this is likely to backfire. On the other hand, you may not be willing to completely indulge his interests in your sweetheart's Valentine's gift entirely (i.e. replacing the broken remote controlled drone that he flew into a tree during Christmas).
