Don’t look now, but it’s Valentine’s Day. Again. And with that comes an age-old conundrum: what to get that special fella in your life. No matter if you’re already married or still at an earlier stage of the relationship-building process, a heartfelt prezzie is a must. Something filled with personal meaning, something that meets a daily need, or something that’s just frivolous and fun — all work!

Included below are 10 of the most popular Valentine’s Day gift ideas for men, as measured by search volume here at Yahoo.

 

Keep him smooth with a shaving kit.

Grooming supplies

Does your boyfriend look like Bigfoot? Is his neck beard something you might see on the bench at an NHL rink during the playoffs?

Help him put his best face forward with an all-in-one shaving kit, which typically includes precision-angled blades, soothing gels, and a soft brush for the post-razor detailing. Complete his manscaping makeover with new cologne and he’ll be looking good and smelling nice.

Is your dude obsessed with all things digital? Gift him with a new tablet, either Apple or Android, so he can stay current in a busy world.

Sports scores, stock prices, the latest headlines — all will be within his grasp at a moment’s notice. Play your cards right and he’ll even use that shiny new tablet to make reservations for the chic Italian eatery all your friends have been gabbing about.

Wireless headphones

Is he a music buff? Consider wireless headphones so he can listen to his favorite tunes whenever he wants. At the gym, on a train during his commute, playing video games — the applications are endless.

A good pair of wireless headphones will block out life’s little distractions, which will leave him more time and energy for the important things (namely you).

Food subscriptions

If the quickest way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, then the easiest way to keep his love is with a monthly food subscription (truly the gift that keeps on giving).

Two of the most popular ideas also happen to be two of the most obvious: beer (because … beer!) and steak (insert Homer Simpson’s drooling “mmmmm” here).

Fitness trackers

Fitness trackers for manly movement (Amazon.com).

If he’s eating up all the foods, your man will also need to work off some of those extra calories. Fitness trackers are trending these days — and with good reason. Used properly, they provide a wealth of data about your workout habits: speed and distance traveled, heartbeat, and, depending on the model, sleep quality. They even measure calorie consumption, so just plug those beers of the month into the interface and you’ll know where you’re at in the battle of the bulge (no fibbing!).

Get concert tickets for your music fan.

Event tickets

Want to spice up your date night routine? Kick the Italian eatery to the curb and treat your partner to his favorite band or sporting event with hard-to-get tickets.

Be it Weezer or the Red Sox, there’s a band and a team for every man out there.

Weekend getaways

Give him a weekend getaway,

Give him a weekend getaway,

If the budget allows, bundle those tickets with a romantic weekend at your favorite destination. Maybe it’s the mountains, maybe it’s the coast, or maybe it’s just the big city near you. Again, the possibilities are limitless. Set your heart aflutter and see where it takes the two of you!

Digital cameras

When you do find time to get out of town on a romantic retreat, you’ll want to preserve the memories. And the best way to do that is with a new digicam! Sure, you could use your phone, but a standalone camera will deliver better shots in a wider range of environments.

Remember: Better pics mean more “Likes” when you share on social!

Gift baskets

Stumped by specifics but have a general idea what he likes? Opt for a gift basket stuffed with multiple goodies, which can be assembled around almost any interest (cheese, comics, clothing, etc.). A bit of online sleuthing turns up gift baskets from a wide variety of retailers at almost all price points. Because why give one gift when you can give several?

He'd love a new watch.

He'll always know what time it is.

Watches

Some say that a man can be judged by the company he keeps, but let’s be honest, the true mark of his character is found in his timepiece. Be it analog or digital, classical or cutting-edge, expensive or nerdy, a great watch compliments a man’s personal style perfectly. Even better, if he actually knows how to read and use it, he’ll never be late for date night again.

    • FBI searches for teen feared to have been abducted, gang-raped and fed to alligators

      The FBI have searched a remote rural location hoping to find clues about the disappearance of a 17-year-old girl who was allegedly abducted, gang-raped, shot and then fed to alligators. The bureau was searching a rural area of South Carolina on Friday (24 March) in connection to the disappearance of Brittannee Drexel, which occurred almost eight years ago. Last summer Taquan Brown, who is serving 25 years for an unrelated manslaughter case, testified that Drexel was abducted, gang-raped and then shot dead when she tried to escape in 2009.

    • Ask Amy: My husband told me to ‘get over it,’ so here’s my plan

      DEAR AMY: I have been married for 33 years. I love my husband, but I have totally enabled him — to the point where I am now feeling abused. For instance, this morning, he was in a minor car accident. Through my business relationships, I have an excellent contact in the repair business, and so I kindly took his car in, gave him mine to use in the interim and picked up the rental. I asked him to drive the rental so I could have my car back, and he refused. I told him I felt used. He basically said I should get over it. Because of my family background and decades of behaving this way, I am now at the point where I feel incredibly put upon because of all of the expectations, as well as the total

    • Here's how you're told by the President you've been awarded the nation's highest award for bravery

      On Saturday, President Donald Trump hosted 25 living recipients of the Medal of Honor at the White House in recognition of the rarely-celebrated Medal of Honor Day. But being awarded the the nation's highest military award doesn't happen often. The medal has only been conferred just 18 times after more than a decade of combat in Iraq and Afghanistan. Many recipients lose their lives in the act that the award recognizes. But some, like retired Marine Cpl. Kyle Carpenter — who received the award in June 2014 — survive and learn from the president that they are being given the highest possible recognition for their courage. So how does that discussion actually go? Fortunately, that moment when Carpenter

    • Tennessee bills teen to replace guardrail that killed her

      LENOIR CITY, Tenn. — The state of Tennessee has billed a dead teen nearly $3,000 to replace the guardrail that killed her in a car crash in November. Around 5:44 a.m. ET Nov. 1, Hannah Eimers, 17, was driving her father's 2000 Volvo S80 on Interstate 75 northbound near Niota, Tenn., when the car left the road, traveled into the median and hit the end of a guardrail with the driver's side door, according to a Tennessee Highway Patrol crash report. Instead of deflecting the car or buckling to absorb the impact, the guardrail end impaled the vehicle, striking the teen in the head and chest and pushing her into the back seat, according to the report. Four months later, Steven Eimers of Lenoir City received a $2,970 bill from the Tennessee Department of Transportation, dated Feb. 24 and addressed to Hannah for the cost of labor and materials to install 25 feet of guardrail at the scene of the crash.

    • Shaffer: Trump Wiretapping Case Exponentially 'Worse Than Watergate'

      Former CIA officer Col. Tony Shaffer said the basics of President Trump's claim to have been "wiretapped" are likely true, and that the incident is "worse than Watergate." Noting it has been exactly two weeks since Trump tweeted that President Obama wiretapped his namesake tower, Shaffer said the "basic fundamental idea and claim is true." He said that Trump was not physically wiretapped, with a wire into his phone, and it may not have physically been Trump Tower, but his campaign apparatus instead. Shaffer said that due to the simplicity required to "mask" an American's name during an incidental wiretap, that the leak of Gen. Michael Flynn's name was "accidental on purpose." "Clearly they were

    • The Browns' best player makes it clear why Cleveland didn't want Colin Kaepernick

      The Browns have needed a good quarterback for … oh, just since they returned to Cleveland in 1999. They settled for Brock Osweiler this offseason in a stunning trade, and maybe he will be the answer for them that he wasn’t for the Texans. In the process, though, the Browns made pretty clear that they weren’t interested in Colin Kaepernick, the 29-year-old who led the 49ers to the Super Bowl all of four years ago and has put up better numbers than Osweiler almost across the board. Why did they resist the free agent? Let Joe Thomas, the Browns’ 10-year Pro Bowl left tackle and team captain, explain: Now, Thomas’ point ignores two important truths: Kaepernick has been very good as a starter in the

    • Pet owner explains why he shot his own beloved dog, buried her at the beach

      A dog owner who is facing animal cruelty charges for fatally shooting his dog in February is now speaking out about his decision to kill the pet, explaining that it was an act of love — not a crime. Michael Whalen, who lives in Virginia Beach, said he adored his hound mix, Allie, who he had owned for more than 15 years. “We did everything together. She went everywhere with me,” the 65-year-old man told CBS affiliate WTKR in Virginia. “I even took her on a vacation trip one time on my motorcycle.” So, he said he was devestated when he was told a little over a year ago that the 15-year-old dog had Cushing’s disease, a rare condition that is the result of too much of the hormone cortisol in the
