Every Valentine's Day, I have the same three thoughts: (1) I can't wait for chocolate. (2) I can't wait for the day after Valentine's Day for all the 50 percent-off chocolate. (3) WTF am I going to get the boy? Shopping for a guy for a holiday that's stereotypically catered to women (what's up with that, anyway?) is a royal pain in the can. If you're also experiencing holiday-related stress, I've got a list of 16 Valentine's Day 2018 gifts for guys that will make your shopping trip a total breeze.
I've always wondered what men really think about Valentine's Day, so I went on the search for answers and ended up on Yelp's conversation board. (In related news, Yelp has a conversation board.) Someone posed the question: Do men truly care about Valentine's Day or do they just follow what their partners want? Perhaps unsurprisingly, the answers varied greatly. Some men love it, some hate it, and some are indifferent. Turns out general opinion about Valentine's Day is pretty similar for people across the board.
Regardless of everyone's feelings toward the holiday, though, there's one thing we all love: day-after-Valentine's-Day-half-off chocolate. OH! And presents. We all love presents. Here are 16 present ideas for guys that, TBH, most people would love to get year-round.

Drones are toys for adults, and this is one gift that will give anyone hours of play. Make no mistake about it: once he opens this up, everyone else will cease to exist (unless they happen to be twenty plus feet up off the ground).
10A Cookie Cake
11A Subscription Box
12A Basketball Hoop Mug
If the guy in question fancies a brewski, this is what he's been missing in his life. It's perfect for beginners, and let's be real: beer is so much more meaningful when you make it yourself.
