For many men, the key to their hearts is – let’s be honest – golf. Make his day by gifting him a sweet new golf shirt from Bye Bye Bogey for Valentine’s Day! He’s probably itching to hit the links this spring and this dry-fit polo will ensure he shows up in style. Plus, the material is light and breezy which will keep him cool for 18 holes.

8. Goo Goo Cluster Candy
I am gaga over Goo Goo! As a native Nashvillian, this candy is near and dear to my heart thanks to its’ long history in Music City! The candy got its’ start in 1912 as the world’s first combination candy bar – meaning there was more than one element in it. The Goo Goo consists of chocolate, caramel, peanuts and marshmallow nougat! A perfect combination IMHO. Of course you can order Goo Goo Clusters from anywhere in the country but if you’re in Nashville, you must visit their downtown shop! You can even indulge yourself in a chocolate-making experience. You’ll have the opportunity to make your own specialty Goo Goo Cluster and learn more about the candy’s history. Click here to learn more about their chocolate-making experiences!
