I had thought of getting him a $100 Visa giftcard for Vday but a lot of you guys said no to that lol
Now, I'm thinking of other ideas... I know he primarily wears suits to work. He is a car dealer at a dealership. I also know he likes doing the whole "cool crazy socks" under his suit thing.
Do ties come in certain sizes? I was thinking about getting him a tie with matching socks. Is that good? What else can I pair with that? YOU MEN ARE SO HARD TO SHOP FOR xD

Nix on the tie plus socks, I think. Try going for a silk tie in some color you think he likes, not what you like. Also ties with stripes that slant from left shoulder to right hip are from Europe and from right shoulder to left hip are from the US. Europe has it that way so when you need to draw on a sword, you cross the sash / stripe direction and it looks good. USA did it the other way, to protest from the way England had it back in the revolutionary war days.
If you look up color and sales you can get breakdowns like this:
Red – dominance, power, confidence, attention, sexual energy;
Black – elegance, authority, power, confidence;
White – virtue, cleanliness;
Gray – class, efficiency;
Blue – trustworthiness, seriousness, intellectuality, calmness;
Burgundy – passion, spirituality, extravagance;
Pink – upbeat attitude, health;
Yellow – alertness, optimism.
Of course, not everyone really cares about the tie color. The personality is much more important, but it's fun to have a little info on why you picked something. Have fun. Hope that helps.1

I agree that giving him a $100 Visa gift card is not the best idea... partly because that's a lot of money for a two month relationship, partly because gift cards (as the main gift anyway) are kind of a cop out, and partly because cash gifts only make sense to me when they come from grandparents or uncles. I'd be baffled if my boyfriend gave me straight up money as a gift. Gift cards to actual stores are pushing that boundary enough for me.
I think fun socks and/or a tie are a good idea. You could also go with something edible (his favorite treat, fancy alcohol, or something a little crazy like a home brewing kit). You could also try one of those "(Fill in the blank) of the month" clubs- they have them for beer, wine, cheese, snacks, international foods, and pretty much anything you can think of. Or get him pajamas (he doesn't wear a suit to bed!), boxers, or a hat or scarf. Books, video games, board games, and puzzles also make great gifts.0
