    29 Valentine's Day Gifts For Your Partner That Are Actually For You

    A sneaky way to give yourself presents!

    1. A genius comforter with one warm side and one cool side to keep you both at the perfect temperature while you sleep. Now you won't have to fight over whether to crank up the heat or turn on a fan.

    2. This non-stick divided breakfast skillet that'll inspire them to serve more than toast when they're taking the morning shift in the kitchen. It'll also save them from doing a ton of dishes, which I'm sure they'll appreciate.

    Several breakfast foods in the pan

    3. A soy wax candle that'll make their home smell like golden-rayed lily, yarrow, and tonka bea (instead of dirty socks and Mr. Noodles).

    4. A scratch-off movie bucket list that'll give you a whole new list of movies to watch on your date nights. You've probably already seen a handful, so they can start scratching off titles as soon as they open it.

    5. A Nintendo Switch that's small enough to pop in their bag, but can also be connected to their TV if they want to play it on the big screen. It has two removable controllers (the Joy-Cons on either side of the screen), so you can play with them, too.

    6. A bottle of Canadian-made Heartbeat hot sauce that'll help ~spice up their life~. They pack a punch in the flavour department, but won't put their taste buds out of commission for a week. Will you try and steal this for your own fridge? Definitely.

    7. A pair of shearling slippers that will keep them from shoving their ice-cold toes under your butt to keep them warm. These ones have a harder sole with a tread that'll save them from taking a dive on their hardwood.

    8. A gooseneck kettle that will inspire them to make you coffee every morning (and look great in your kitchen, too). Reviewers love that you can set the temperature to your liking, whether that's scalding hot or actually drinkable.

    9. A bottle of luxury beard oil to add shape and shine to their beard, and get rid of any annoying itchiness. Plus, they smell great, which obviously benefits you, too!

    10. A pair of Apple AirPods Pro, so that they stop stealing yours when they go for a run. They last for nearly five hours on a single charge, so they won't have to stress about them dying in the middle of a workout.

    11. A set of satin pillow cases that'll make you feel like you're staying at a five-star hotel when you sleep at their place. The silky material doesn't snag hair like cotton, so you won't have to stress about your tresses being pulled when you toss and turn.

    12. A copy of 50 Shades of Chicken, a cookbook that'll help them become the home chef you've always dreamed of dating. The recipe instructions are definitely on the saucy side, so their onions won't be the only things sweating.

    13. A sweary cocktail shaker, if they prefer their drinks like James Bond — shaken, not stirred. Cheers to coming home to masterfully-crafted mojitos, margaritas, and Manhattans.

    14. A fancy MVMT watch, so they'll never be late for anything again. The strap is interchangeable, so they can switch up the band when they want a new look.

    15. A waterproof Bluetooth speaker that'll suction right to their tiles and take their shower performance to the next level. It has a built-in microphone, so they can answer your calls while they're relaxing in the bath (and not worry about their phone taking a dip).

    16. A pair of hot sauce keychains, so you'll always have sauce, whether you're on a road trip or grabbing impromptu takeout on date night. They come empty, so don't forget to grab them an XL bottle of hot sauce, so they can fill them as soon as they open their gift.

    17. A tube of moisturizing Malin+Goetz mojito lip balm that'll keep their pout hydrated and save you from smooching sandpaper. The gel formula will glide on smooth, unlike those ultra-thick beeswax balms.

    18. A robotic vacuum that'll handle your most annoying house chores for you, so you won't have to argue about who's going to do the sweeping. It's as quiet as a microwave, so it won't bug you while it does its job.

    19. An avocado seed sprouting ring that'll help them turn their pits into trees. Guac costs extra? NBD, you have plenty at home now, thanks to this bad boy.

    20. A pillowy-soft cotton sleep mask that'll block out every little bit of light and give them the best sleep of their life. Now they won't complain about you turning on the lights too early or staying up too late.

    21. An electric wine bottle opener that'll help them swiftly open any bottle of shiraz or chardonnay, so you won't have to wait to get your wine. It'll also save them from fumbling around with a corkscrew when you're trying to have a romantic moment.

    22. A retro-inspired Fujifilm instant camera, so you can take adorable couple pics (and cover your apartment in them). There's a tiny mirror right next to the lens, so you'll be able to nail your selfies on the first try.

    23. A heart-shaped box of Belgian chocolates in the shapes of x's and o's that you'll definitely be eating half of. What better occasion to dive headfirst into a box of cocoa-filled goodness than Valentine's Day?

    24. A time-marked water bottle that you can steal sips from when you forget to bring your own. It has an extra-sturdy handle, making it easy to tote around while they're on the go.

    25. A heated mattress pad that'll keep your shared sleeping situation at a toasty-warm temperature, so you won't have to raise their hydro bill to snooze through the night. Reviewers say it makes their mattresses softer, too, which is obviously a major plus.

    26. A portable 2-in-1 dry iron and steamer, because their clothes live in a wrinkly pile on the floor (and so do yours). It takes under a minute to preheat, so they can get down to business right away.

    27. A Click and Grow garden that'll make them feel like a seasoned botanist and give you free access to the freshest (and cheapest) herbs. I have one of these and my boyfriend keeps talking about stealing my basil. Will he succeed? Only time will tell.

    28. This bestselling massage gun that'll help them blast away their aches knead out their knots (if you're lucky, they'll use it on you, too). Reviewers say that it eases post-workout pains like nobody's business and love that they can maneuver it with one hand.

    29. And finally, a bottle of classic Poo-Pourri spray to save the two of you from any awkward bathroom encounters and keep everything smelling fresh. Reviewers say that it really works and is great for people who are sensitive to scents.
