Let's face it, guy gifts for Valentine's Day can be tough. Catching Fireflies is here to help.

If I'm being honest with you, (and don't you miss hearing Simon say that on American Idol?) I'm a little stumped on what to get my better half for Valentine's Day. This is one holiday that guys have it easy: chocolate, jewelry, flowers. Any of these three and he's a winner. But what do we get them?
Option 1: Does your honey have a man cave? Does he love classic Beastie Boys? Did he write you love poems back in college? If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, I suggest the "You Are" wall art for $23.95. It's black and rustic, perfectly macho for the man cave. It has a romantic sentiment that lets him know much you love him in manly terms (i.e. bacon) while faintly echoing a hit from the early 1990s.
Option 1.5: Replace the words Beastie Boys in above option with Beatles and I suggest the "All You Need is Love" wall art with its matching partner, "Love is All You Need." Each piece is $7.95.
Option 2: Is your honey stressed out? Would a long, hot bubble bath do him a world of good but you know that's never going to happen? Get him shower steamers. All you do is throw it down on the floor of your shower and the spray activates the aromatherapy experience. But don't use the word aromatherapy with him. Instead dwell on the brutish names like Hangover Buster, Stress Buster and Headache Buster. Individually, the steamers are $3.95 or you can get a four-pack for $15.95.
Option 3: Is your Valentine also one sweet daddy? Then I suggest the Made with Love for Dad book for $7.99. It includes a built-in picture frame, stickers, memory book and custom coupons. (FYI: There's a mom version, too).
