Need men input...Valentine's Day/Birthday/Anniversary?

Ok, given this is DVDTalk, I'm sure DVDs would be a good gift for a bunch of you.

But OTHER than DVDs, what are some things you would like to get as a gift?

My husband and I got married on Valentine's Day, so I need a good gift that packs a 2fer1 punch.

Background: he is sorta introverted, an accountant (controller/comptroller??), likes computer strategy/war games (especially ones easy enough that I'll play online with him ), likes gadgets that make life easier/organized...

Ideas?

Sex? Alcohol (if he's a drinker)? Computer Game might be a good idea too. What about tickets to a play/sporting event/etc.? That's something you both could benefit from.

Well, I know it's a DVD, but Revenge of the Nerds sounds perfect for your husband.

Two chicks at once I always like it when I get books or a magazine subscription. And booze is ALWAYS welcome.

Is he a Star Wars fan? The computer game Empire at War doesn't come out until the 16th but he might enjoy that.

An "I Won't Ask You About Your Feelings For a Week" voucher and a promise to keep quiet during the Pro Bowl.

We're trying to get pregnant, and we're on vacation next week... so there'll be PLENTY of sex.

I need actual gift ideas. Thanks to kneijst, wendersfan & Wally.

He's not a Star Wars fan, thank God, or I WOULD get him the Revenge of the Nerds DVD...

Does he like the Total War series of games? Rome Total War is a game I'm currently playing and addicted to. You might not see him for a while if he gets that game, so it could be counterproductive to you getting pregnant.

I'm disappointed in the Otter Farm that no one has mentioned 3-way.

Do you cook?
Can you give a good massage?

If you answer yes to those, cook him his favorite dinner (whatever that is) and then give him a nice relaxing massage, followed by what twikoff said

If you answer no to those, then buy him a game and leave him alone for a while and feel sad for him that his wife can't cook or give a good massage

I see. You wanted to say it but were too afraid of the consequences.

I like the idea of a free pass out of "Can I talk to you about something?"
