February 14th is more than just a day for lovers, it’s a time to celebrate the people you love. Here are some of our best gift ideas for the very special men in your life.

Your Dad.
For the man that has everything, share all your special memories and photos on a mini bulletin board crafted from a decorative picture frame. Everything from Daddy and Me dates to graduations to personal anecdotes. Make it extra special and pin tickets to his favorite sporting event to the board.

Your Brother.
Related to a certified music buff? Find a few of his favorite vinyl records at a thrift shop. Get creative and turn the records into bowls or coasters. Fill it with small fun gifts or have them mounted. gift for brother

Your Male Best Friend.
Find out his favorite movie and gift him with vintage memorabilia from the franchise. This works really well if the movie had a large following, thus making it very easy to track the items down. If you found a movie poster, get it framed. We recommend an international version of whatever he likes. If he’s a big fan, chances are he already has the American version. gift for best friend

Your Boyfriend.
Keep him guessing about what his gift is with a homemade scratch off card. Create four different date-night ideas, cover them with scratch-off solution and package the card with a shiny penny to make the perfect gift. Make one date night a romantic dinner at his favorite restaurant. gift for boyfriend

Your Husband.
Gift him with a romantically cute design on his favorite mug featuring a Tic-Tac-Toe game with three red hearts in a row that win. Add your names around the border with “Love Always wins” at the bottom. Even if he’s not a coffee drinker, the mug is perfect to store his pens, pencils or loose change. You can even fill the mug with a pair of movie tickets or candy.
