Jackalope Ranch's Valentine's Day Gift Guide for Him

It's become clear after years of painstaking research and trial-and-error gift giving that Valentine's Day is not nearly as important to men as it is to women. Still, we're of the belief that it should be given ample thought. After all, just because V-Day isn't a deal-breaker for your guy, that doesn't give you an excuse to hit up the neighborhood Walgreen's at midnight to buy a tiny heart of chocolates declaring the recipient "dino-mite" with a picture of a Brachiosaurus.

The hallmark holiday falls on Friday, February 14, which gives you a handful of days to get your guy something he not only might like but also might actually use. Though we don't pretend to know your lover the way you do, here are five suggestions for a nearly foolproof holiday hit.
