    Well, in all seriousness, (I'm not saying this like some of the sick, perverted freaks on here), a back massage is a nice gift at the end of the day. Nothing sensual, just a back massage to relax him and let him rewind after a long day. In addition to this, definitely a card, reminding him how much you appreciate him. If you want to get him something electronic, Bose earphones are like every guy's dream. Or you could spring for tickets to a Six Flags or something, just for the two of you for a day. Mainly, I think the day should be about the two of you, so it's not really what you get him or how much money you spend, but the time and effort and energy you put into his gift. You could make a photo album of the two of you together.
