The typical Valentine's Day gift image by


Valentine's Day is typically thought of as a "girl's" holiday, with hearts and flowers everywhere. Boys may feel left out on this day and a little uncomfortable receiving flowers and heart-shaped candy. Regardless of the boy's age, though, there are plenty of gift ideas to make your valentine happy.


An iTunes gift card makes an excellent Valentine's Day gift for preteens and older. You can purchase gift cards in amounts of $15 and up through the iTunes Store or retail outlets.


Most boys love games, whether video games or board games. Games range from lower-priced board games to high-priced new video games. Whatever your budget, you can find something to please your little valentine.


If you have a young recipient, pick out a toy. Is he interested in action figures or trucks? Some can be purchased inexpensively. You can complete the gift by adding a small package of valentine candy.
