Shutterstock_2993612It’s hard to believe that Valentine’s Day is—gulp—tomorrow. Admit it—sometimes we procrastinate when shopping for that special someone (no matter how many flower ads and candygrams remind us what time it is). Life is busy, and we don’t always have the time to search for that jaw-dropping gift. Fear not, last-minute shoppers. This is the digital age, where no one has to settle for the scraps of Valentine’s Day eve.

For the Reader
Every guy has his favorite reads. And whether he’s a car buff, music lover or outdoor enthusiast, odds are there’s a magazine right for him. Best of all, most can be ordered online in a matter of seconds. Want to give him something more than an email confirmation? Swing by the bookstore on the way home for his first edition.

For the Shopper
I know—gift cards can sometimes feel a little…impersonal. But the right gift card (i.e. one to a place you know he likes) tells him that you know his style and respect his tastes. And with multi-card kiosks available in more and more supermarkets, you can get your V-Day gift and card in one fell swoop.

For the Adventurer
Often the best gift is the time spent doing something new together. Whether it’s horseback riding, wine tasting or whitewater rafting, sharing an activity outside of your usual routine will not only warm his heart but can also breathe new life into your relationship.
