Gift shopping for anyone is already a feat in and of itself. Shopping for that special someone in your life, however, is on another level.

There's no denying that Valentine's Day gifts for your boyfriend, husband, or other loved ones in your life should have a bit of thought put into it. But when you're faced with the type of man who says he'd be happy receiving anything (because after all, it's the thought that counts), well, it's safe to say you might find yourself in a bind. 

Sure, there are always a handful of tried-and-true gifts that'll always bode well for the love-filled holiday, like chocolate, a bouquet of roses in the form of a sweet flower delivery, heart-shaped Valentine's Day jewelry, you name it. But in the grand scheme of the romantic day, you'll be hard-pressed to find gift ideas that really speak to him.

Even if you're planning a special evening with your loved one -- complete with pretty Valentine's Day lingerie and a sentimental, handwritten Valentine's Day card -- a gift is one way to go above and beyond. 

Whether you want to get a Valentine's Day gift for him that he would have never thought of for himself, a little something to make his life easier, or something to go toward more shared moments together, scroll down to see ET Style's favorite gifts for him below.
