    I'm looking for something a bit more romantic/sexy. These are more like gifts I would for Christmas or a birthday. They're really neat, but not Valentinesesque I would say, with 2 exceptions. I look for something that is more about the romance, or sexiness, or emotion between me and the guy or something we can do together. Is it common to buy just regular gifts for Valentine's day?

    MOST of these look great for someone younger. My man personally wouldn't like any of these picks... I think Valentine's Day gifts should be more personal, pampering or sexy. I'll have to keep shopping. xxx

    I found these gifts: A shaving set, shaving your man's face can be very sensual. http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=8886731 I know this was in another storque spotlight, but I think it shows affection and yet is still manly: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=8943396 Edible massage gel. I really don't think I need to elaborate: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=8175554 A sleak Valentine's day card. No foofy kittens or sappy words. Just get to the point and add to that a fun a pop-up. I think a man would like the uniqueness of these cards: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=8950693 http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=8928091 Something I suggested in the forums, a print about love... and rats. Rat love! It has a heart but is tempered in the mushiness by having said heart made out of rat tails. It's just like the principle when men hug they have to clap each other on the back, so "I'm hugging you, but I'm hitting you." So, it's sweet, but kinda gross at the same time. http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=8300432
