Looking for a special and thoughtful Valentine's Day gift for him? Yes you could brave a restaurant on February 14th, or try one of these unique ideas:
For the Foodie - Meet other couples and help prepare a romantic French Bistro-inspired dinner served by candlelight at Toronto's St. Lawrence Market. Book early – this class sells out every year. Wine available by the glass. Menu includes: Fresh Shucked Oysters, Chicken in Tarragon Cream with Fennel Potato Gratin and Green Beans in Brown Butter.
For the Pizza Lover - aka, for ANY guy. Do something sweet and simple and make him a heart-shaped pizza! You'll need a pair of sharp scissors to cut out the heart-shaped salami. Just fold the circles in half and cut as you did back in elementary school. For the dough, form a round pizza shape and use your pizza cutter to cut away at the excess dough to create a heart. Voila!
For the Sports Enthusiast - The Toronto Raptors are on a roll and we found cheap tickets under $50 for a few upcoming games. Give him a fun night out with dinner, a basketball game and some snuggling afterwards.
For the Outdoorsy-Type - Book a snowy weekend getaway and spend your days cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, tubing and making the most of winter. Check out our post on Five Winter Getaway Ideas.
For the Extreme Sports Dude - When he's not water skiing or wakeboarding at the cottage, he's in the snowboard park hitting rails and jumps. Indulge the inner kid in him and give him a GoPro - a waterproof camera that mounts onto his helmet or anything else for that matter (like on the edge of his surfboard) so he can share all his extreme stunts on YouTube. $300.

For the Hockey-Crazed - Give your hockey-loving man a once-in-a-lifetime chance to play with NHL alumni like Gary Roberts and Brad May while helping the homeless. Tournaments are coming up soon in Ottawa and Montreal, so make a road trip out of it! Starts from a donation of $300 and you can both raise more together. For more info visit Hockey Helps the Homeless.
For the Fitness Fanatic - Feed his need for speed with this stationary bike holder. This little gadget allows your beau to get his spin practice indoors while using his own bike. He'll cycle his way to a healthy heart, and you'll get to enjoy some quiet reading time. Available at Velotique in Leslieville.
For the 'New Guy' - Why not customize an item that he will use everyday? SIGG offers a customization service for on their water bottles. This is a small gesture that you care and is a great Valentine's Day gift for couples that are just starting out.
