Ladies, Valentine’s Day is exactly a week away, and you still didn’t get your guy a present? Here’s my advice: stop giving him candy and other stuffed animals he’ll pretend to love but then secretly throw out later. Give him stuff he’ll actually like– we’ve got a list of entertainment gifts to get you inspired!
My Bloody Valentine – mbv
If your guy is a fan of 1) new music, 2) season-appropriate band names, and a 3) widely-acclaimed quality, get him this album. An English alternative rock band, My Bloody Valentine released their long-awaited new album on February 2. Since then, “mbv” has been gathering thumbs-ups from critics and fans alike. If your Valentine likes electronic guitar music coupled with soft ethereal vocals, chances are, that he will love the record.
This 2005 flick contains what many men love most—sports. The film stars Drew Barrymore and Jimmy Fallon, and is actually a romantic comedy that you could watch with him. A word of advice though: before you head to the register, make sure your man is not a die-hard New York Yankees fan!
Odds are that if your man loves video games, you would know about it. Odds are also that, he would love another one on his collection! My pick? Fires been getting rave reviews.
Who doesn’t like a guy that plays an instrument? Ukeleles are as cheap as thirty bucks and are very easy to master. To learn a popular and radio-friendly song like Train’s “Soul Sister”, you only need to know four chords.
How to Dress Well/Sky Ferreira Concert Ticket
What’s better than a good indie musician? Two good indie musicians! Sky Ferreira, a 20-year old up-and-coming singer-songwriter whose song “Everything Is Embarrassing” was named one of the best tracks of 2012 by numerous publications, is touring from March to April with How to Dress Well, a well-known R&B project by Tom Krell, whose album last year “Total Loss” was also critically acclaimed. Check out their tour dates and get you and your man a pair of tickets.
