Valentine's Day Gift Guide for Fellows

Ladyfriends, there are twelve days until Valentine's Day!  Show how much you've thought about your gentleman caller with one of these ideas. 

1.  A 20 x 200 print that's made from an article about his favorite TV show.  Wouldn't it be nice to brush your teeth together next to this every day?

2.  A snuggly sweater for watching movies on the couch with a fire.

4.  Make him his favorite dinner.

Follow it up with his favorite dessert (bonus: no baking required, and no dishes if you just eat it straight from the carton, as is his preference).

5.  A pair of hipster shoes that he keeps looking at, but won't buy for himself because he "doesn't really need them."

6.  Even though it's too late for the perfect Christmas sweater he spent all of December looking for, there's still time for some warm and wintry Valentine's Day socks.

7.  A cool bottle of whiskey from a distillery in Michigan.
