- LOOT CRATE -
Relax, these aren't stolen goods for your special guy. Loot Crates are subscription boxes for men who love technology and pop culture like MineCraft, Star Wars and Marvel collectibles.

Discounts are also available for those who subscribe to long-term plans. According to AskMen, the discount code AMVDAY can be used when ordering a Loot Crate and you can get 10% off any subscription plan. Click HERE to visit the Loot Crate Web site.
- WATCH -
Because guys just can't have enough watches, it's still a gift that is much appreciated. Also, it will help them be on time for your dates. If you can afford to give your guy an expensive watch such as a Rolex or a Tag Heuer, then go ahead and buy it for them. Or, you can get them a smartwatch that syncs to their smartphones like the Sony Smartwatch (Click HERE to see a photo of it from the Amazon Web site) or the Samsung Galaxy Gear Smartwatch (Click HERE to see a photo of it from the Amazon Web site).
But, if your budget doesn't allow it, why not give them a watch that's not super expensive as the aforementioned brands? Something like a Seiko Men's Sportura Watch is also nice and it won't break the bank. It is a kinetic powered/autoquartz watch with a stainless steel case and a blue rubber strap.

- CANDY -
Guys like candy as much as girls. And maybe, they are even secretly hoping that girls will share with them the chocolates they give to her. In case you don't want to share it with him, why not give him his own candy to enjoy. Chocolates will be thoroughly appreciated, but if you want to be a little less generic, you can give him a Candy Crate 1980s Retro Candy Gift Box. It has a variety of hard-to-find candies from the 1980s. It will make him reminisce about his childhood while enjoying his candy. It is a blast from the past and a trip down memory lane which he will surely cherish. If he was born in the 90s and doesn't even know what Nerds, Fun Dip, Pop Rocks, and Sweet Tarts are, then it won't be a problem because he will still enjoy these classic treats.
