I like the ideas for the men gifts..the "indulge in bad behavior" are nice. I am also really into experience gifts right now though..this list had some great ideas that are a bit "out of the box" for men > http://www.skinnyscoop.com/list/cathleenking/thoughtful-valentines-day-gifts-for-him

Another great idea for Valentine's day is from a online site called Stuffed in the City. (http://bit.ly/stuffedinthecity) They are based out of NYC, and Italy. The basic idea is that you send the company your (or your girlfriend/wife's/boyfriend's/husband's) favorite stuffed animal and they take that stuffed animal on a tour around either NYC, Rome or Florence. At the end of the trip, they send the stuffed animal back with a DVD of all the places they visited. (There's even a Sex and the City, as well as a LOVE tour for the ladies!) It's a very unique idea that I'm sure she's never received before! Happy Valentine's Day!
