If your man is into jewelry, get him a bracelet, necklace, or even a new pair of earrings. Many men are rocking the earring trend this year and making a fashion statement. Give him a pair of black diamond earrings to show him why diamonds are a girl’s best friend. The black stud shown above is eye-catching because of its 14k rose gold prongs, making it fashionable.

For a pair of simple studs, you can also get him a pair of 14k white gold studs that are more subtle and will look good with any outfit!

Most likely your man loves sports. If he does, see if you can find a game he would love to attend and buy him two tickets (of course one of them is yours!). If you’ve done this before, you can definitely do it again.  Let’s face it men love sports as much as they love you.  Sorry, it’s the truth!

5) New Headphones
