    Promising review: "First bottle opened — Citrus Flower. Very good! I tried it alone and it was good to sip — but then tried it with club soda and it was perfect for me! Very balanced! I have every night this week fixed this aperitif to sip on while I'm making dinner. I'll be ordering more" —Candace H.

    Get it from Haus for $35.

    6. A pair of Ugg Fluff Yeah slippers to treat their toes to some of the coziest cushioning on Earth.,

    7. A jerky sampler box for the curious taste tester so they can mark a few new types of meat off their "I've tried that" list. Ostrich meat? Check.

    Get it from Man Crates for $39.99.

    8. A Book of the Month subscription that'll send them a hardcover book of their choice every month. It takes the scary guesswork out of offering book recs and gets more great titles on their shelves for less $$$.

    Rachel Dunkel / BuzzFeed, Rebecca O'Connell / BuzzFeed

    I received a three-month Book of the Month subscription for Christmas one year, and it was the best surprise! I really underestimated how much I would enjoy having books picked out for me. It’s like never having to choose where to eat ever again. A dream come true! Also, two great things will happen when you have a BOTM subscription: 1) You’re going to discover new, amazing authors (ily, Sally Rooney). 2) You’re going to become the friend who already read that amazing book before it got popular. Who woulda thought a book subscription could up your cool-factor so much?

    The giftee will receive a current, best-selling book of their choice (from a rotating selection of five titles from different genres) every month for three, six, or twelve months.

    Get a three-month subscription from Book of the Month for $49.99.

    9. A marble cheese slicer to level up your weekly charcuterie board dates even if your Two-Buck Chuck isn't going anywhere fast.

    It comes with two replacement wires and has plastic feet on the bottom for stability and counter protection.

    Promising review: "Gave this as a gift and, after a year, the recipient still loves it!" —eric

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    10. An Amazon Echo Flex smart speaker for your partner or "special" friend so neither of you have to fumble around searching for the Spotify app on your phone when the mood strikes. 😉

    The miniature speaker which is roughly the size of a deck of cards

    Promising review: "I have had this for a year and it works flawlessly. I use it to set alarms, play music, look up the weather, hear movie listings, etc. I find it plays music loud enough for me. I have it in my living room, and can hear it in bathroom, bedroom, and kitchen. (I live in a 1,000-square-foot apartment.) When I am talking on the phone, the other party on the line says they can hear it very plainly so it is loud. I also have the night light attachment and it comes on automatically at dark and in the morning I have to tell Alexa to turn off light. And that works perfectly also. I just love it. You will too." —Sandra Knight

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available individually or with add ons).

    11. A tray of Baked by Melissa cupcakes because who doesn't love miniature baked goods?? I mean seriously — they're like the size of a quarter so they can try out all the flavors without getting a stomachache.

    A tray of 25 miniature cupcakes
    Baked by Melissa

    The sampler comes with all of the bakery's best-selling flavors including: Tie-Dye, Cookies & Cream, Peanut Butter & Jelly, Cookie Dough, Triple Chocolate Fudge, Chocolate Chip Pancake, Red Velvet, Mint Cookie, Pink Frosted Doughnut, Snowball, Snowcap, and Chocolate Peanut Butter.

    While orders are never in transit longer than two days, if you place your order last-second it's wise to select expedited or priority shipping.

    Promising review: "Whenever I have an occasion coming up this is my go-to gift. Birthdays, anniversaries, engagements, everything! Everyone loves these treats!" —Hayley

    Get them from Baked by Melissa for $32+ (available in trays of 25, 50, or 100).

    12. A MeUndies gift card for a membership so they can get high-quality, comfortable underwear with make-them-smile prints sent straight to their door. Up the romance factor and get each of you a matching pair!

    A membership will get them a fresh pair of underwear every month in their preferred style. They'll choose the size and fit preference.

    Get a gift card from MeUndies for $25+ (available in larger amounts).

    13. A matte disposable camera so you can take a bunch of silly photos together and then — while they're being developed at a local CVS — wait a suspenseful week to see if you nailed your shots or overexposed everything.

    Urban Outfitters

    To ensure you receive it in time, select express or rush shipping at checkout!

    Promising review: "Cute little novelty and really nice considering these are really hard to find now and can be super expensive. Just make sure you know a place that will develop the film for you!" —egghead

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $18.

    14. A gift card for a Sips by subscription box filled with premium teas, personalized to match their taste preferences. Every month, they'll get sent everything they need to steep and sip their way to serenity.

    At checkout, you'll have the option to choose between downloading a printable card or scheduling an email delivery.

    Get a gift card for a three-month subscription from Sips by for $45.

    15. A potted plant that won't poison their furry friends and arrives pre-potted in a stylish ceramic pot. A fun fact to share with the giftee: this plant self-propagates, and the sprouts are called "pups."

    The Sill

    Note: Orders typically take five to 10 days to ship out so last-minute orders may not make it time for Valentine's Day. That said, if you live in the New York City, Los Angeles, or San Francisco area, some of The Sill stores are now open for curbside pickup. Just call ahead to make sure!

    Get it from The Sill for $22+ (available in three planter styles).

    16. An admittedly cheesy but still really cute novelty tee emblazoned with everyone's favorite Jedi master and a sweet little love note.

    The blue shirt which has a Yoda illustration and says "Yoda one for me"

    Promising review: "Love the design! It was perfect for my Star Wars-loving fiancé for Valentine's Day! Fits him great, and he gets compliments on it often." —Richard V Bush

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99 (available in Youth 2–12 and Men's and Women's S–3XL).

    17. A vintage Kate Spade kettle caffeine drinkers are sure to adore. If they have a thing for matching sets, you can also get accent plates, mugs, trays and more in the same darling design.

    The polka-dotted white kettle which has a cherry pattern

    Promising review: "I absolutely love Kate Spade and this kettle adds so much character to my kitchen!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $50.

    18. An easy-to-learn board game that will have you tuning in to each other's mental ~wavelengths~ and getting to know each other a little better with every round!


    Wavelength is a social guessing game where individuals take turns being "the psychic" and must get their teammates to correctly guess the location on the spectrum dial that associates with their clue!

    Everyone I know who has played this game loves this game! Brother, boyfriend, mom — everyone! You learn a little about the "psychic" every time, and it's incredibly flexible to accommodate huge fluctuations in players (2—20). It's a simple concept with a lot of depth since you have to adjust your thinking every round to match that of the "psychic."

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99.

    19. Or, if you want to double up on board games, Azul, a tile placement game that's exceptionally pretty (it's inspired by Moorish art) and super simple to pick up.


    In Azul, players (two to four in total) earn points by arranging patterned tiles on their board. Though the objective is pretty straightforward, there's also room for strategy as any unplaced tiles = negative points and once players really get the hang of things, they can begin to manipulate who gets stuck with what.

    Promising review: "What can I say? It’s basically a perfect game. Easy to learn but has a lot of depth as you get more acquainted. And it passed the wife test (my wife admittedly hates games but she will play this one with me every time). I gifted it two times for Christmas 2019. Both parties loved it. This is a must for your collection. Get it!" —Pop Tarts?! ROFL

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99.

    20. A plush donut pillow sure to win over any sweet-obsessed friends. If strawberry isn't their favorite, donut worry — it also comes in chocolate.

    Promising review: "Super cute pillow! It looks just like the picture. The stuffing is compressing over time as you’d expect from any pillow, but the stitching seems really strong. Either way, it’s adorable!" —Make It Kate

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    21. A United Sodas of America gift card so your loved one can purchase a variety pack of the Instagrammable cans.

    The variety pack which comes with 12 flavors
    United Sodas of America

    The organically sweetened sodas don't have any artificial ingredients and each is just 30 calories. The brand's 12 flagship flavors include: Cherry Pop, Strawberry Basil, Extra Peach, Orange Nectarine, Young Mango, Lemon Verbena, Pear Elderflower, Gingery Ale, Sour Blueberry, Toasted Coconut, White Grape, and Blackberry Jam.

    Get a gift card from United States of Soda for $35+ (available in sums up to $400).

    22. A symbolic wildlife adoption for your favorite do-gooder and animal-lover. It comes with information about the species, an adoption certificate, and a plushie version of the adopted animal they can snuggle up with in your absence.

    A gallery wall with various styles of frames

    Get it from Framebridge for $25+ (e-gift cards and physical gift cards are available).

    24. A pair of light saber chopsticks for an out-of-this-world mealtime experience any Star Wars fan will love! A set comes with two pairs, so any food battles you two have can be settled the Jedi way.


    This set includes two lightsaber chopsticks, and batteries are included!

    Promising review: "These are the coolest chopsticks I have ever seen. The instructions for use and cleaning were clear and concise and the light that they give off is amazing!" —Jennifer P. Lane

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $14.97.

    25. A year-long subscription to Stitcher Premium so they can finally catch up on the podcast you've been telling them about for months. Nothing says Happy V-Day like access to thousands of hours of true crime, right?

    Three available podcasts including My Favorite Murder
    Stitcher Premium

    Stitcher Premium has more than 60,000+ hours of bonus content from popular networks like Wondery, Earwolf, and Witness Docs.

    Get it from Stitcher Premium for $34.99/year.

    26. A modern canvas that just looks like a bunch of lines, but is actually their favorite film — as represented by a chronological color strip from every scene. This here is Good Will Hunting.

    The Good Will Hunting Frome
    Gytis Vaitkus / artjafara -

    Frome has more than 1,200 cinematic canvasses from classic romances like Titanic and Brokeback Mountain to ultra-quotable comedies like Step Brothers and Mean Girls.

    27. A cacao turmeric blend for the wellness-obsessed that'll make incorporating the health benefits of turmeric a delicious treat and not a chore!

    Golde, @golde / Via

    28. A house-shaped tissue box cover because the best gifts solve mundane problems, like transforming their unsightly tissue box into enviable decor.

    A few reviewers thought to personalize this product with fun decals!

    Promising review: "Got this as a gift for someone that pretty much has everything and unfortunately that includes terrible allergies. Hard person to shop for so I thought why not give this person something cute and functional. Something that takes up very little space and may even be a conversation piece in their home while they are grabbing for Kleenex. Hope this person likes it and if they do not I'll gladly keep it because I like it..." —K S

    Get it from Amazon for $8.49.

    29. A spray hand and surface sanitizer — aptly named "Germaphobe" — that has a festive pine scent and actually leaves hands feeling moisturized instead of woefully dry and sticky — like the goopy sanitizers your S.O. is probably toting around now.

    A hand holding a spray bottle of Every Humans Germaphobe hand sanitizer
    Everyday Humans

    Germaphobe has none of the nasty chemicals found in a lot of traditional sanitizers but it's just as effective, killing 99.9% of germs and exceeding CDC sanitizer guidelines.

    BuzzFeed Shopping editor Elizabeth Lilly swears by this hand sanitizer. In her own words:

    "A lot can be said about 2020, but one positive thing is that I've found a new favorite hand sanitizer. This beaut from Everyday Humans is small enough to fit in my purse, leaves my hands feeling sanitized *and* moisturized, and has a nice black tea smell that has me sniffing my hand throughout the day (totally normal!). It's fully converted me to spray hand sanitizer. No more gloopy liquid for me. Quite frankly, I should just go ahead and buy a case."

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $25.50.

    30. And a deck of monochrome playing cards so they can ace their next game night, or make their next round of solitaire extra *aesthetic*.
