Men are difficult to buy for no matter what the occasion, but Valentine's Day might be the most intimidating time for gift-giving—so much pressure not to scare the guy, especially if it's a new relationship. And if it's a well-worn affair, you want to bestow something he'll actually use and make him remember how much he digs you.

Here are some ideas from our favorite San Francisco retailers that are stylish, unique, and useful. Also: Valentines' Day is just two days away (in case you didn't notice!), but don't worry, you can acquire these gifts within city limits—no need to bite your nails waiting for shipping.
