Valentine's Day is certainly a holiday that's geared toward women. Men don't have much use for stuffed puppies or those chalky candy hearts. But while it's easy to get swept up in pink ribbons and red roses, we can't forget the manly half of our couple on V-Day. Why not thank our doting men with gifts that they'll actually enjoy.
Gifts for Couples
The ultimate couple's Valentine's Day gift would be a vacation or quick getaway for the two of you. Consider a long weekend at a sweet bed and breakfast or even a cruise, if you can both afford the time off. If a vacay is too far out of your price range, consider a romantic dinner cruise for two. Another great "together" gift is a couple's massage. Check your local spas for special combo pricing or Valentine's Day deals. SEE REF 1
