Valentine's Day is the day on which too many men shoot themselves in the foot, often with the guns that they've cluelessly bought their wives as gifts for Valentine's Day.

For many men, buying a Valentine's Day present is an exercise in futility, one that often ends in disappointment, apologies, and promises to do better next time (Sounds like my wedding night! But seriously, folks...). Luckily, the Internet exists, and it is full of enterprising men and women who want to help you find just the right gift for your girlfriend, fiancee, wife, mistress, paramour or dirty little secret.

Now, it could be that you're planning on selecting a Valentine's Day gift on your own, based on what you personally think the lady in your life would like: After all, you do live with, talk with, and perhaps even listen to this special, special woman. If you do not, however -- or if you're just looking for a little shove in the right direction -- here are 9 websites with Valentine's Day gift recommendations and ideas that just might please the belle in your life in a way that you wouldn't have been able to with your own limited brainpower:

We described Gift Side Story's mission back in October as "trying to stop men from giving women presents they don't want by choosing the gifts for them."

In other words, it's a gift recommendation site. You sign up (free), fill out a brief, easy questionnaire about your gal (Which one of these tops can you see her wearing? Does she like dogs or cats?) and then Gift Side Story offers you three present suggestions that it believes best fit her personality and tastes. Best of all: If you don't like any of the gifts that Gift Side Story has chosen, simply browse elsewhere. You don't owe any money! Free gift recommendations! And you might just discover something she'll love! Yippee!
