If you’ve been dating a year, chances are you’ve already given him a handful of gifts for other occasions and might be running out of ideas.
If that’s the case, it’s time to get a little more creative.
So if you want to keep something on hand, go with a classic gift that says, "Thanks for giving me something to do this Valentine's Day so I didn't have to sit at home by myself." A cool bottle of his favorite booze, a Netflix gift card, or a book you think he might like are harmless yet amazing gifts for anyone, really.
And of course, it wouldn't be Valentine's Day without candy, and chocolate bars are definitely dude-friendly.
Maybe give a gift you both can enjoy like tickets to a game or a concert, or an overnight stay at a hotel with room service breakfast in bed.
Nine months in is probably a good time to spend a little more money on gifts than you have before.
One good rule of thumb is not to spend a lot of money.
You want to send your crush the message that you've been thinking of them, but you don't want to go overboard and seem like a stalker, either.
