@shantelle,
You've been with your partner for a year and you don't still know his sensibilities?

Fine. Okay. What are his some of his passions? What city do you live in or nearby? Can you give his personality a little more context?:

Is he a sports fanatic? An individual of high brow cultured tastes? Where did you two meet? In college? Etc....

he's 23, eh? Perhaps a book on his favorite hobby or activity? How about a buying him a gift certificate for a real good massage?

@shantelle,
Well it is good that you're giving it a serious thought. That effort is encouraging.

What does he like to drink? Beer? Something else? Maybe you can buy him a nice six pack of beer then create some kind of simple romantic dinner with candle lights around Valentine's night. If you're sneaky enough, have this personal shindig on the night before Valentine's so it will catch him off guard.

You could give him some homemade coupons for say future shoulder massages. It might be appreciated if he has a stressful job and/or week.

a lady's shaver, a kiss, a cuddle and a see through babydoll negligee.

the best thing about a gift such as this is you can use it over and over and over again.

Just trying to imagine that kangaroo in a "see through babydoll negligee"!

It's not working at all for me.

If he's 23 and all he does is drink and work out, then give him a brain (or a kick in the behind)

Last year I got a little creative.

I greeted her at the door of my apartment in velvet breeches and a pillowy blouse. I kissed her cheek and then serenaded her on a wooden flute. Or rather I blew into it and made some loud screeching noises. I then led her into the living room where the furniture was cleared for the Venetian gondola I had constructed out of cardboard.

She was a good, if perplexed, sport at first, sitting in back of the gondola as I mimed rowing us down canals. A Verdi opera I can't remember the name of was playing, though unfortunately I had my iTunes on shuffle and after the overture Avril Lavigne was suddenly blasting, and after that I think Daughtry came on. Did I let that spoil the moment? No. I escorted her to the dining room and served her Spaghettios and Carlo Rossi.

God, I remember how the candelight played upon her face. And how she paused mid-meal and said to me, "I can't tell if you're secretly gay, or just partially retarded."

@shantelle,
I have to agree with the dinner, you can make anything depending on your cooking skill level. He will enjoy it guaranteed, because of the company he has. I know I did in college when I lived in the dorms, all we had was noodles, but it was a memorable night.
