The all singing, all dancing Valentine's Day gift guide

Well..Monday is the big day.  Have I bought Simon anything? No.  Mainly because I haven't found something befitting a man of his stature *ahem*.  I saw this bitchin' pair of spoons in a newspaper, the "head" of the spoon was shaped like a heart but I can't really see him being too impressed with those.  

Anyway, men are easily pacified with a bit of carnal delight come Valentines Day so this is about the people that actually appreciate a good gift.

(All the links under the photos will take you straight to the the respective places to purchase the items..)

Always something a bit dodgy come Valentines Day because you know that getting clothes either too big or too small won't really help sexify the mood.  Sexify being a technical term I learnt whilst watching Family Guy.  Thus, make sure you know the size before you go shopping..and by size I mean actual measurements because we all know a River Island size 10 isn't the same as a Topshop size 10.  If that's too much work, underwear is usually easier to buy once you know the cup size..
