Valentine’s Day is lauded as a day of romance–an opportunity to remind your significant other that they’re loved and appreciated. And although it’s meant to demonstrate love, sometimes men receive the short end of the stick. You know what I mean; it’s quite common that Valentine’s Day is marketed as a holiday for men to give gifts not necessarily receive. So here’s a guide of practical gifts under $70, that doesn’t include cologne or sex, for that special man in your life!
