Netflix Trial Membership: Download a trial Netflix membership and indulge in his favorite action movie (and maybe a Romantic comedy for later). Price? Free.
Candy With a Message: Give him a suggestive bag of candy. Obviously Hershey’s Kisses aren’t a bad thing; after all, they’re the LBD of Valentine’s Day gifts. For a retro gift, try Now & Laters, and sign them with a cute card that says, “I want to kiss you Now & Later.” Or spice it up with Red Hots and say, “You make me red hot.” All for less than $5.
Kama Sutra To-Go: Download the Kama Sutra App on his iPhone. Enough said (and it’s free.)
His Domain Name: Claim your domain. Reserve his domain name (or yours as a couple, if you’re that kind of official) and own your own little corner of the web for life. As long as your names aren’t Madonna or Kanye, GoDaddy.com has tons of them for $12 or less.
A Growler of Beer: Put him in good spirits. Fill a growler with his favorite draft beer (Whole Foods has some excellent microbrews for under $12) for a treat that’s yummy and eco-friendly. Personalize the bottle with colored sharpies and he’ll want to fill it again and again.
The Gift of Song: Steal his phone while he’s in the shower and download “your song” as his new ringtone. Then call him and…surprise! Aww. $1.29 or less from iTunes.
Mix Tape USB: Make him a faux mix tape. Surprise, it’s actually a USB you can fill up with Kanye, The Samples or whatever his favorite jam is. If you’re like us, a “mix tape” joke has come up somehow in your relationship. Be that saucy girl and get a tongue-and-cheek gift that’s a wee bit more expensive, but thoughtful and you’ll have a “talker” story to tell next time you’re at the ‘rents house. Available from Amazon for $23.27.
