What Guys Want For Valentine's Day

Grooming Indulgences—Sometimes guys can be a little hesitant to splurge on grooming items for themselves—that is, until they get hooked—so do your honey a good turn by setting him up in style with luxe shaving products or a classic monogrammed shave kit.

The Art of Shaving 'The 4 Elements of the Perfect Shave' Kit, $100, available at Nordstrom; Orvis Men's Leather Shave Kit, $253, available at Orvis.
Sexual Curiosity—A tasteful and playfully sexy book is a great way to stimulate both your guy's mind and ...err....you know. This fun book is easy on the bank, but wonderfully done and provocative.

Sex Game Book, $35, available at Assouline.
High Fidelity—Music conveys a lot that words just can't, so get your boyfriend an ultra-cool turntable like the Project Audio one here to play a record that has personal meaning for the two of you. Or, if your dude is more 21st Century, get him an iPod or other personal music device loaded with a playlist specially selected by you.

Project Audio Pro-Ject Debut III Turntable, $399, available at Insound.

Memories to Last a Lifetime—There might not be a gift that has a more thoughtful meaning behind it: a camera (with or without enticing pics of yourself loaded on) is a great way to show your love and that you're ready to make lasting memories together!

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FH20 Camera, $139, available at Amazon.

Just Don't Call It Jewelry—While guys are pretty limited in their choice of ornamentation, a unique pair of cufflinks or statement watch are easily customizable (especially the DIY watch below) and will undoubtedly make any man feel like a prince.

Paul Smith Fly Cufflinks, $125, available at Farfetch; Tokyobay The DIY Watch Kit, $210, available at Tokyo Bay; Hamilton Men's Khaki Field White Automatic Dial Watch, $501.23, available at Amazon.
Timeless Love—While not the only way to show your love, a luxe gift is a great way to show what your priorities are to the object of your affection (i.e. him). This Goyard wallet is monogrammable (you can even change up the font type and color for each initial) and will last a lifetime (as we hope your love does!). Even if you don't break the bank, a fun wallet is a great gift that that will remind your man of you every time he pulls it out.

Goyard Monogrammed Wallet, price upon request, available at Barneys.
Scent of a Man—We can't think of anything sexier than a great men's cologne, and Valentine's Day is a great time to find limited-edition gift sets with which to pamper your man.

Yves Saint Laurent Nuit de L'Homme Gift Set, $78, available at Sephora.
Bag of Dreams—Getting your guy a signature bag is not only practical, but also inspiring when you fill it with books on new travel adventures you'd like to have together!

Ben Sherman Plaid Computer Bag, $109, available at Ben Sherman
