    2. I Choose You (Every Day & Always) — a charming and relatable book about how your love is a conscious choice and something you build together.


    It's llustrated by Yumi Sakugawa, who you might know from one of the most relatable comics of all time.

    Get it from Amazon for $8.87 or from a local bookseller through Indiebound.

    3. A Fizzics beer system that makes cans or bottles of beer feel like draft beer.

    The system uses fluid dynamics and sound technology to change the texture of the beer. It'll give each drink a nice foam head and make it taste like it was poured fresh from the tap. I've taste-tested beers and ciders that went through the Fizzics system and I can confirm they taste fresher and smoother!

    Promising review: "I was very hesitant at first about making the purchase, but after using this for the first time, I’m so happy I did. If you’re a beer lover, this is a must-have in your home. I may have to buy more of these for gifts." —Shawn Woodward

    Get it from Amazon for $124.99.

    4. An assortment of nuts that walnut fail to impress this Valentine's Day.


    It has walnuts, almonds, cashews, pralenes, pistachios, and mixed nuts.

    Get it from Amazon for $29.95.

    5. A multi-use skillet with room to cook a bunch of food at once, so you don't even have to wake up that early to surprise your SO with breakfast.

    Promising review: "Now that I have cooked a few meals with this pan I can honestly say that I will no longer be needing all my other pans. It just does it all. Cooking multiple ingredients at the same time and then infusing them together to mix the flavors is something that I have never been able to do before. Keep the pan at a medium heat to always get the best cook because food cook differently and you can take your time in preparing your meal. I recommend this to pretty much anyone that likes to cook and mostly to the ones that dread it! A++" —Dan S

    Get it from Amazon for $31.62.

    6. A couple's Question a Day journal that helps you two log and track your journey of ~love~.


    You each answer one question every day for a year, and then go back and re-answer those same questions for five years in a row. At the end, you'll be able to see how much you've grown and in what ways you've stayed the same.

    Promising review: "Only two weeks in, this journal has become much more than 'a fun little exercise.' It is something that I look forward to doing every morning when I wake up. It has become a part of my daily routine, and I can't wait to answer the questions day after day. My boyfriend most definitely feels the same way. Not only is it fun, this journal has been the beginning of a lot of great conversations in our relationship. Even the silliest questions, (ie "What's the softest thing you are wearing today?") are a cause for self-reflection and discussion, since I get to wear my PJs (I work from home), and my boyfriend's softest thing are his socks (poor sucker goes into a corporate office day after day). More serious questions have led to conversations about race (we are an interracial couple), culture, body image, etc. I am truly looking forward to seeing how our answers change over the years, and I can't wait to see all of the questions that are in store for us for the upcoming year!" —S.Kahlon

    Get it from Amazon for $13.74.

    7. A subscription to Winc — a service that mails them tasty wines right to their door.


    I've used Winc a lot and I recommend it to pretty much everyone. All the wines are delicious and come in beautifully designed bottles. It's super convenient having a cache of wine ready to go. You never know when guests might stop by! Best of all, if you ship four or more bottles, shipping is free! Due to certain state laws, you can't mail Winc to people living in AK, AL, AR, DE, HI, KY, MI, MS, OK, RI, SD, or UT. Read my whole review of this awesome service.

    Get it from Winc for $13+/bottle.

    17. Why So Ever Bards Dispense Profanity — a fun party game that uses actual Shakespeare quotes to create some pretty hilarious situations.


    The game works a lot like Cards Against Humanity or Know Your Meme. A player puts down a prompt and all the other players put down cards with Shakespeare quotes on them. This isn't for kids: The results can get pretty smutty.

    Promising review: "THIS GAME IS IMPOSSIBLE NOT TO ENJOY, whether you know anything about Shakespeare or not — it makes no difference. I had no idea how much wit and how much 'inappropriate' language are in his plays. It's extremely easy to learn so you aren't wasting time reading instructions. In fact, the very-brief instructions say to just play until you get bored. ;-) Nothing serious about this game!" —Long Beach Native

    Get it from Amazon for $13.68.

    23. And a Quip toothbrush to make sure that sweet tooth doesn't get a ton of cavities after all that gummy-gorging.

    I have a Quip and I'm never going back to ordinary toothbrushes. It has a pleasant buzz without being too intense and has a sleek design that fits nicely in your hand. Conveniently, they mail you replacement heads and batteries, so you never have to deal with worn out bristles. It also won our budget category for the best electric toothbrush on BuzzFeed Reviews.

    Promising review: "I was skeptical of getting an electric tooth brush but after the first day of use I was hooked! The sleek design and the carrier that sticks to the mirror is very aesthetically pleasing. I'm also one to stick to routine and the 30 second quadrant interval buzz helps feed to that. My gums were sensitive the first week but after using this more they are sparkly clean! My dentist said my teeth and gums are extra healthy and clean! I definitely recommend it!" —Mosancz

    Snake River Farms

    It comes with two black grade top sirloins, two ribeye filets, black pepper-infused salt, and a SRF thermo bag. Sold separately, the value is $119, which isn't a huge money-saver BUT! you do save a lot of money by not going out to a fancy restaurant.

    It comes with two glass bottles, a fine steel strainer, a stainless steel funnel, juniper berries, and a secret botanical blend.

    Promising review: "Bought for a white elephant gift exchange...and my wife stole it from my family — which was awesome. She made it, and we're thrilled with the results! We have already gone through half of the gin she made (really, we don't have a problem) as it's both fine for sipping, as well as mixing with some of our typical gin cocktails. We're looking forward to making another batch." —Pete

    Promising review: "I got this as a surprise for my boyfriend. He moved to my state from Texas for college. I wasn't sure about how it would smell but I figured even if he wasn't a fan, it would be neat as a decoration for his room. When I surprised him with the candle and he smelled it, he actually got very emotional and started crying because he said the smell instantly brought back so many memories of home. I don't know how they did it, but Homesick Candles managed to replicate the smell of home so well in this candle that it took my boyfriend back home immediately. Definitely worth my money. :)" —Bailey K

    Promising review: "I bought this for my girlfriend for her birthday. She is a millennial and she loves to just have music playing wherever she is. So she carries it around her place with her — whether she's doing makeup, stuff in the kitchen, or elsewhere in her place, she just brings it with her wherever she is.

    Promising review: "Just received several days ahead of estimated delivery which was very nice. All the chocolates/candy are very freshly dated and were protected by the packaging. The box itself was a bit dented but everything inside was perfect. I am very happy with this purchase. Several years ago, I went to a local British store and bought about $40 worth of candy for a British vs. American 'taste-off' for the kids, (we would read a book and then try to eat meals/snacks like the characters for a new experience). This was so much less expensive and I saved myself the two hour round-trip drive. Can't wait to show the kids and remind them of that taste-off picnic!" —dp
