It's easy to find gifts for girls on Valentine's Day, but guys are another story. Besides clothes— which can make for risky gift-giving if you don't know the other man's size (no jokes, please)— we like tech and gear items that are often expensive to buy and ship. Besides, it's not easy to just run to a store, pick up a TV and hide it until V-Day to surprise your guy. But here are a couple ways to save on both cost and shipping, and you can use them any time of year.

Start by finding what you want, then visit Shopzilla.com. This site lets you compare prices from multiple websites in one easy location, just make sure to look at tax and shipping fees before entering your credit card info. In some cases the item that looks more expensive up front is actually cheaper because you don't have to pay for sales tax.

Next money saving option? FreeShipping.org. This is the largest resource on the internet for linking shoppers to free-shipping deals offered by nearly 4,000 online merchants. So when you find something you want to buy, you can look up the site for discounts on getting the gift sent to your location. Right now they have ten companies that guys love, with free shipping offered.
