Every February — the month of love — Valentine’s Day (and my anniversary) rolls around, and I never know what to get my boyfriend as a present! I search high and low on tons of websites looking for the perfect, and most affordable gift! I composed this list of unique gift ideas for no matter what your price range might be this year. Just remember, my suggestions aren’t the only places you can buy these great finds, and I encourage you to look other places if you like the idea, but wish for a lower price! Happy shopping, and a very Happy V.Day!
1. Game Tickets to See His Favorite Team at a Reasonable Price
Trust me, I know how expensive tickets to the game can be. $150+ per ticket is just not the kinda price range you had in mind. Score Big gives you discounted tickets in decent seats.

2. Satin Sheets
I gave this last year to my boyfriend and he loved them! They’re perfect in any season — keeping you cozy warm in the winter, and smooth and breezy in the summer! Not to mention they’re heaven on your skin, and extremely sensual.
3. The Art of Shaving Kit
He’ll love this new way to shave! Forget razor burn and cheap blades; after trying this old fashioned barber shop clean-shave, he’ll never want to shave any other way!

4. Personalized Instagram Pillow
If he is a little pic obsessed or doesn’t have any throw pillows on his bed, this might be the perfect gift for him! Simply upload your favorite Instagram pics of his on Zazzle.com and get a customized InstaPillow in return. Whether it’s pics of that trip you took to Lake Michigan last year or a collage of family and friends, this clever idea is sure to gain you brownie points!
