It's not always easy to buy a Valentine's Day gift for a man. Most don't get excited by unwrapping a beautiful package that holds clothing or accessories inside. But they certainly appreciate Valentine's Day gifts that do stuff. Choose any of these Valentine's Day to help him realize how well you know him -- and how much you care.
How long has he been carrying that same wallet? If the answer is, "too long," consider replacing it with a smart-looking new one. And don't forget to slip a picture of you inside.

The iPod Touch does everything an iPhone does, without requiring him to change his phone plan after Valentine's Day. Depending on how much memory you choose (8, 16, and 32 gigabyte models are available), he can stash between 1,750 and 7,000 songs, watch movies and play games on the widescreen display, and download his favorite Apps.
Most men aren't comfortable wearing a lot of jewelry, but few can resist a fine watch. This classic watch by Hugo Boss has a striking black dial and is a gift that will remind him to make time for you.
This is the camcorder everyone wants. Lightweight because it has no moving parts and records everything on a removable flash memory, it also boasts a Canon lens. Record your most romantic moments on Valentine's Day and memorable trips. You'll never have to replace tape in the middle of a shoot. The unit, which fits in the hand, can also be used as a still digital camera.
If he's got a TV, a stereo, a VCR, a DVD, and/or cable, he may also have enough remote controls to confuse a NASA engineer. Not to mention that the one he wants is often the one that's missing. Help him coordinate his entertainment by converting to a universal remote, which can operate all his IR-electronics from one keypad.
Most men are hard-wired to fix things, especially when they have the right tools at hand. So surprise him on Valentine's Day with gifts of a circular saw, cordless drill, or other implement that will inspire him to build those shelves or make the repairs your place needs. Don't forget to reward him affectionately when the job is done!
No other gifts will light up a man's eyes like a new flatscreen HD TV monitor. As a gift, Sharp Aquos provides exceptional viewing — aside from when he's admiring you, of course.
Give him the gifts of music this Valentine's Day to go with his existing or new iPod, iPod Touch, or iPhone. iTunes gift certificates are available from $10-$200, enabling him to download his favorite new songs.
