Valentine's Day is just around the corner and since my coworker Brendan just wrote about great gifts to get the man in your life, I thought it only fair that I should share the woman's side of things. Let's get one thing straight. If you think Valentine's Day is geared toward women and what makes them feel loved, then I'm going to say that you're pretty much correct. Women (and I actually mean me) tend to have a tangible love language and want to be reminded that they are oh so very special. They want to know that they are loved and cherished and the traditional gifts of flowers, candy and a card never go out of style. So here's the skinny on Valentine's Day gift giving.

Valentine's Day is a special time to show those around you that they are loved. Traditional gifts include, flowers, candy, maybe a cute stuffed animal and a big heart-shaped card with a thoughtful sentiment inside. That's all well and good except for - what if the person you love doesn't like those things? What if, say, you're in need of a Valentine gift for a guy in your life and he isn't particularly fond of teddy bears or a bunch of carnations? You want to get something he really likes, and the traditional go-to valentine gifts are simply off the mark? Fear not, because this holiday-loving blogger is here to give you his never-fail top-five list of things to get for a guy for Valentine's Day.
