Decoding What Your Lady’s Valentine’s Day Gift Means
"Ask Men" has come out with a handy guide that decodes the meaning behind eight common Valentine's Day gifts for men. And ladies, if you still need to get your man something, listen up, because you'll probably find some good ideas here.
#1.) Magazines. A subscription to something like "Esquire", "Wired", or "Forbes" is like a monthly reminder that she cares. And since they're a step up from "Maxim", it shows that she values your intellectual side.
#2.) Blu-Ray Movies. Something like "Inception" or "The Social Network" on Blu-ray is trying to appeal to your manly side without insulting your intelligence.
#3.) Bar Set. A nice bar set for your kitchen shows she thinks it's okay for you to cut loose when she's not around.
#4.) Grooming Products. A nice shaving set shows that she wants you to keep up your appearance, probably so she can show you off to her friends.
#5.) Cologne. Cologne means one thing: You smell of cheese. Just kidding. She's just trying to make sure you smell amazing whenever the two of you are together.
#6.) Electronics. An electronic item like a new smartphone or iPad shows that she's really into you, and wants to stay connected whether it's over email, text, or phone calls.
#7.) Intimate Bedroom Gifts. Adult-themed bedroom games and edible novelties show she's totally willing to get wild between the sheets.
#8.) A Classy Watch. A nice watch is a BIG DEAL. Since you're probably going to wear it every day, it's going to be a constant reminder of her. This chick is seriously into you.
