    1. A delicate initial necklace, in case you prefer simple jewelry you can wear every day., Amazon

    ...or so you can scream-sing the Taylor Swift lyrics "I want to wear his initial on a chain 'round my neck — not because he owns me, but 'cause he really knows me." Either way! Fab purchase.

    Promising review: "This is a great necklace not only for the price but in general. I’ve purchased jewelry that cost almost 10x as much that was faded after a few months this is light but weighted enough to feel a little luxurious. I like dainty jewelry and this pendant is a little bigger than I’m used to it is pretty and last long." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95 (available in 26 styles).

    2. A selection of Cadbury treats for your love who studied abroad in London and has been stress snacking while reading about Harry and the royal family's relationship for the last few weeks.


    Comes with one Curly Wurly, one Picnic, one Twirl, one Starbar, one Crunchie, one Wispa, one Dairy Milk Caramel, one Double Decker, one Dairy Milk, and one Flake.

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    3. A set of 50 stickers inspired by The Office — it might not be a teapot filled with inside jokes, but it will ensure the Pam to your Jim has the best Valentine's Day ever.


    Get a pack of 50 from Amazon for $7.88.

    4. An unofficial Harry Potter cookbook so your Potterhead partner can be a ~wizard~ in the kitchen, not just at Hogwarts., Amazon

    You can whip up magical treats like treacle tarts, pumpkin pasties, and Molly's meat pies.

    Promising review: "I LOVE IT, I'm no master chef but this cookbook might change that. I might even become a master wizard chef! Anyways the recipes are phenomenal, especially the pies! It's pretty basic sometimes; it's more European type cuisine so if you don't like haggis, liver, lamb, or other English/Scottish dishes etc. then these recipes aren't for you. The book references are cute and I vaguely remember some of them. My younger siblings go crazy when I make anything from this book because they love Harry Potter." —Tigerlily

    Get it from Amazon for $10.95.

    5. A gift card to Hunt-A-Killer that'll let your true crime-loving S.O. try to figure out a murder mystery of their own.


    Each box comes with high-quality, hand-crafted clues that'll immerse your partner right into a fictional world in which they are a detective working to solve a real mystery! Each "season" includes six episodes (boxes), so be prepared for your loved one to want to keep the fun going.

    Get it from Hunt-A-Killer for $33.95/1 month or $165/6 months.

    6. An ironic garlic chopper inspired by Dracula to make any chef smile and prevent their fingers from smelling like pungent garlic all day. No promises on their breath, though.


    You can also use it to chop nuts, fruits, and veggies!

    Promising review: "I purchased this as a gift for my friend who is a fantastic cook — she uses fresh ingredients almost exclusively — but pressing fresh garlic is a task usually delegated. No longer — Gracula is there for her. She uses him nearly every time she needs garlic (which is basically daily) and months later still makes a point of saying how much she enjoys the gift. I'm pretty sure she likes it better than other gifts I've gotten her which were more expensive/thought out, and I'm fairly certain it's what took me from 'good friend' to 'best friend,' but it be that way sometimes. Anyway, definitely recommended for people who cook with garlic and have a sense of humor." —L

    Get it from Amazon for $17.20.

    7. An Instax camera kit to help them break their habit of only taking photos on their phone and NEVER printing them out to decorate their walls.


    Includes a Fujifilm Instax Mini 9 Camera (with a selfie mirror!), 20 sheets of film, 10 sheets of rainbow film, 20 sticker frames, and a leather carrying case.

    Promising review: "Bought it for my 10-year-old daughter for her birthday sleepover. It was a huge hit! All the girls wanted one by the next day!" —Momof3lilmonkeys

    Get it from Amazon for $79.95+ (available in five color combos; also available with just the camera).

    8. A BarkBox subscription for your one true love: your dog. No judgment here, I'm 100% sending one to my beloved pup for V-Day.


    My golden retriever Luke is, to the surprise of no one, obsessed with BarkBox! I love to send them to my parents' house and watch his reaction when the package arrives. He ALWAYS knows it's for him! The treats are his all-time favorites, and he happily plays with the toys for hours on end. Each box comes with two toys, two all-natural bags of treats, and a chew all related to that month's theme.

    Get it from BarkBox for $35+ (available as 1, 3, 6, and 12 month subscriptions).

    9. A complete set of the Harry Potter films on DVD, so they can go off on an adventure with Harry, Ron, and Hermione whenever the mood strikes (AKA every night).


    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    10. A fuzzy knit cardigan to layer over their favorite T-shirt for a chic — but super comfortable — look.,

    Promising review: "I really like this cardigan a lot. It's true to size and super soft. It's not super heavy or super light and would be perfect for a cooler spring or fall day. I could definitely see wearing this over a pair of leggings and a T-shirt, or a dress. Overall, this cardigan was a great purchase and I'm looking forward to wearing it more when it gets a little bit cooler." —Heather L.

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in sizes S—2XL and 28 styles).

    11. A tiny Mickey-shaped ring, so they can bring a sparkle of Disney magic into their life without having to wear sequin-encrusted ears everywhere they go.,

    Promising review: "I bought this in silver. It's really nice and looks more expensive than I expected. The size of the Mickey is perfect — big enough to be noticeable but not too big so as to be tacky. ;) So far the finish is staying shiny too, though I do avoid wearing it while cleaning or showering." —wdwfan1

    Get it from Amazon for $6.49+ (available in sizes 6–9).

    12. A curtain of twinkle lights they can layer with sheer curtains that'll make them feel like they've headed for the second star on the right and landed in Neverland.

    If it were up to me, I would leave my Christmas lights up inside my home all year long. These twinkle lights are a great way to create that look without being overtly holiday-themed. Tinker Bell would certainly approve!

    Promising review: "I saw a few pictures online of fairy lights with sheer curtains and loved the look. These lights in particular are perfect for what I was looking for. It gives off a warm cozy glow, and really adds a nice touch of oomph to the room." —NG

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99.

    13. A dancing Groot bobblehead for the Guardians of the Galaxy fan who probably wishes they could grow a lil' plant to be their real-life companion but will happily settle for this version.,

    Get it from Amazon for $10.97.

    14. Rosetta Stone Language Software to gift to your love who has always said they wanted to learn Italian but never found the time to do it.

    Rosetta Stone

    Get three months from Rosetta Stone for $35.97 (available in 30 languages and four pricing plans).

    15. A Dead Sea mud mask they can use to host a makeshift spa night with their friends. Fresh skin and an opportunity to post silly selfies? What more could anyone want?,

    My sister and I have used this mask countless times while watching trash TV on my couch — it's a fun way to bond and improve our skin. A little goes a long way, so this product will last 'em quite a while.

    Promising review: "I'm not joking, I thought this was just going to be a normal face mask but I was wrong. The application was smooth and easy. After waiting 10 minutes, I took it off face was smooth as a baby's butt, no lie. This made my face so soft and feeling refreshed and hydrated!!!" —olesya gordeyeva

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95 (available in five scents).

    16. A phone case so amazing that when they see it, they'll be more shocked than when Phoebe discovered that Monica and Chandler were together ("MY EYES!!).


    Promising review: "Smooth case, good picture quality, bright colors, accurate representation, buttons work perfectly, and my favorite case I’ve ever had on any phone!!" —TomOdawa

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99 (available for iPhone 6/6s, 6+/6s+, 7+/8+, 7/8, X/XS, and XR).

    17. An Amazon Fire TV Stick so they can watch talked about shows like The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel or sync up their Disney+ account and never leave their couch again. A gift that'll keep on giving, if you ask me!


    Promising review: "We have been getting steady increases in our cable TV bill with no increases in services. So we thought we would cut the cord and this device became the focal point for making that transition. We are very pleased with the performance of this device. It is easy to setup with prompts provided as you power it up. We then added our favorite apps, (also very easy), and have never looked back at the cable TV being gone. We now save over $100 a month without those charges for cable TV. If you are thinking of making the leap into cord cutting, this is the way to go." —Stephen H. Jenkins

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    18. A rose gold Simplehuman trash can they'll probably cry tears of joy over if they hate germs, because now they'll never have to physically touch their garbage can again.


    Promising review: "I never thought I would spend $200 on a trash can, or write a review about a trash can until now. It looks great and is functional. Yes the trash side is a bit more narrow than a traditional trash can but the overall can is tall so it still holds quite a bit. This is so great for recycling and trash if you have to have a trash can you can see. Would buy again and recommend." —Natalie

    Get it from Amazon for $99.99+ (available in three sizes and six styles).

    19. Four trinket dishes that'll connect together to form one intricately designed place to store all odds 'n' ends efficiently and beautifully.


    Promising review: "This tray is cute, modern, durable, and is a great complement to many rooms in my home. I find that having four individual trays is convenient, and I also like that I can combine them together if I do not need to have everything separate. Having the ability to customize the pieces is handy for creativity, as well as complimenting the space I want to use them in. I sometimes have random trinkets that quickly clutter up a space and this tray is a great way to visually add division and organization." —Kimhoay

    Get them from Amazon for $9.99.

    20. A set of bath bombs they can toss into the tub to unwind after a particularly stressful day and watch their worries ~fizzle~ away.


    Promising review: "I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THESE BATH BOMBS!!!! I think they are fun in terms of the packaging, the names, the colors and the little 'extras' mixed in the bombs. I personally feel they are just the right size and love the colors. The first time around I was concerned about the color part but no worries — doesn't stain the tub. They are very moisturizing for the long tough New York winter we are experiencing this year; my skin tends to be dry but using these bath bombs on a regular basis has helped to keep my skin nice and soft. And the number of bath bombs in the set along with the price is just right!" —Pamela

    Get a set of 12 from Amazon for $26.80.

    21. A four-pack of pizza socks they won't find ~cheesy~ at all when their toes are as toasty as a pie fresh out of the oven., Amazon

    Promising review: "I bought this as a surprise for my significant other, and he LOVED it! He is a sock fanatic and is always looking for new fun pairs of socks, and the presentation of this was a perfect touch to make it even more fun to deliver. Everything fit perfectly, and the socks in the pizza box looked exactly like what was expected! Thanks so much!" —Logan

    Get them from Amazon for $25.99.

    22. Or a purrfect coffee spoon to help any coffee lover stir up some fun with their morning cup o' joe.

    Promising review: "This is a great product and is super cute! The spoon holds on to the side of the cup as expected. I use it every day to stir my coffee." —Curiously curious

    Get it from Amazon for $1.59.

    23. A gift card to Ticketmaster so *they* can choose what concert or play you guys go see on your next date night.


    Whether your love likes to jam out to music or cheer in the stands of their favorite sport team's stadium, this gift card will have you covered.

    Get it from Ticketmaster for $5–$500 (available as a digital or physical card).

    24. A farting animal coloring book anyone who is a child at heart will have no problem receiving from their significant other on Valentine's Day. Prepare for endless giggles and snickering.


    Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

    25. A bee condo that'll have the nature enthusiast in your life saying "uh huh, honeyyyyy."


    Promising review: "We mounted the Mason Bee house on our gazebo and within a week, 8 of the holes were already sealed with Alabama red clay. We can sit in the gazebo and watch the bees fly back and forth working hard to fill the cavities. Eventually we’ll get the nerve to gently open the layers to see how the work was done. If you’re wondering, the bee house is very high quality construction. This would make a wonderful gift for our grandchildren when they’re a little older." —Mack S. Hall

    Get it from Amazon for $35.99.

    26. A tiny Pokémon toy they can build themselves and then keep on their desk as a reminder of their favorite '90s obsession.


    Get it from Amazon for $9.53+ (available in 18 Pokémon).

    27. A heated massager pillow anyone will be happy to have after a no-good, very bad day.


    Promising review: "I just received this and I LOVE it. It adequately relieved the knots in my neck, the base of my skull, and my legs. I'm going to try my feet also. I've been wanting something like this for quite some time and I'm thrilled with this product. This item definitely delivers. I highly recommend it. The price for this item given the relief provided is wonderful." —Stephanie T.

    Get it from Amazon for $49.95.

    28. A set of LED lightsaber chopsticks they'll probably misplace in their utensil drawer but then have the opportunity to exclaim "THESE are the ones I've been looking for!" once they finally find them.


    Promising review: "I purchased these for a friend's birthday present (he is a sushi waiter) and these are flippin' AMAZING. I ordered two sets by mistake, but I am totally keeping the second pair for another gift (or for myself!). These are sure to be great conversation pieces and attention getters. Way to go!" —T. Redwood

    Get two pairs from Amazon for $14.97.

    29. A 12-ounce bottle of Mike's Hot Honey that'll help anyone take the flavors of their boring weeknight recipes to the next level with just a drizzle.


    I've introduced everyone in my life to this delectable condiment. Mike's Hot Honey is sweet with a kick of heat — you'll want to pour it over everything you eat. I personally love it on chicken cutlets and pepperoni pizza, but do with it what you will!

    Promising review: "I tend to shy away from spicy foods, but I couldn’t resist the opportunity to try a new condiment to liven up snacks and recipes with. I was afraid the spice would be overpowering, but it’s actually quite mellow and smooth; just the right touch of heat. So far, I’ve enjoyed this on fruit salad (banana/strawberry/blueberry) with cottage cheese and drizzled on the original Chick-fil-A delicious!" —Sleeps in Rain

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    30. A New York Times crossword puzzle book any word nerd would be delighted to receive — just don't expect them to pay attention to you at all for the next week, with the exception of asking you "what's a 10-letter word for showing affection?"


    Promising review: "I love this thing! The print is nice and large, and the spiral binding is super nice. The paper is still newspaper-y which makes it feel like a newspaper crossword without having to lug around a newspaper. I use erasable pens, and they erase great. The boxes are plenty big enough for the letters and the crosswords are all appropriately 'Monday' difficulty. Great thing to have! Can’t wait to finish it and move on to Tuesday!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $10.38.

    Think they'll want more of a challenge? Try the Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday versions of this book for increasing difficulty!

    31. And a rechargeable lighter, so they can light every candle in the house to create the *perfect* ambience without concern they'll run out of lighter fluid.

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed, Amazon

    I'm obsessed with candles, so it was a no-brainer for my husband to gift me this surprisingly super fun gadget for Christmas. It's really simple to use and charge, and it really works! I'll never have to buy another lighter again.

    Promising review: "This is seriously the coolest device of my winter holiday. It makes lighting candles a breeze. Yes, there is a weird crackling noise, but that's a super minor annoyance. It's a super intuitive device. Plus the lighter with the USB (included), charge for a bit, then pop it open and light ALL THE THINGS; well, candles. I don't know how well it lights cigarettes or whatever. However, for my personal intended use, it's awesome!" —Jee W

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    32. A Kindle Paperwhite for your bookworm bae who prefers to kill time by reading rather than scrolling through nonsense on Instagram.

    Abby Kass / BuzzFeed, Amazon

    It's the thinnest and lightest Kindle that Amazon has released to date! And — as is made abundantly clear by the GIF above — it's 100% waterproof.

    Promising review: "I love the fact that I can read on this Kindle in both daylight and dim light conditions. It is so light and compact, which makes it easy to hold, easy to travel with, and the battery lasts forever. I love it." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $94.99.

    And check out our full breakdown of the Kindle Paperwhite here.

    33. A hair scalp massager that'll quickly become their favorite shower accessory. They can use it to exfoliate and deep clean their scalp while applying their shampoo — it's a game changer.


    I have one of these babies and it really is wonderful. Not only does it make me feel like I'm really getting in there while I'm washing my hair, but it also re-creates that feeling you get when your hairdresser massages your head while washing it. Ugh, so good.

    Promising review: "Love this product! About five days before I received it I dyed my hair at home. As some of you may know who do the same, it’s difficult to get the hair dye out of your scalp. I scrubbed my hair for days with my fingers and it seemed like everything was gone because the water ran clear. When I received the product I was excited so I am immediately jumped in the shower to use it. To my surprise a ton of hair dye that was stuck on my head came off. Not only that, but my scalp feels breathable and clean. Definitely not greasy 24 hours later like regular shampooing would do for me. I would recommend this product." —Lisa Agro

    Get it from Amazon for $7.98 (available in three colors).

    34. A skeleton ice cube mold tray, so the master mixologist in your life can take their concoctions to the next level. Even if they claim to be ~dead inside,~ they'll appreciate this present.


    Promising review: "The silicone mold is rigid enough to hold its shape but flexible enough to pop out the finished product without damaging either the ice or the mold. The level of detail is pretty impressive." —David M

    Get it from Amazon for $11.95.

    35. A fill-in-the-blank book with 50 prompts you can write in ahead of time and present to your loved one for a heartfelt gift they'll cherish.


    This will put any card they give you to shame — you're totally winning V-Day this year.

    Promising review: "I bought this to fill out for our 25th wedding anniversary. I highly suggest you have a worksheet to plan out your words before you put them in the book. That way you can avoid being too repetitive because a lot of the prompts can be similar. This was a hit. It was small and simple but he can tell that I put a lot of thought into it. It will be for his eyes only because I made it very personal. I knew I it was a winner when he smiled and laughed while reading it. I think I’m going to order some of the different themes ones for other family members." —T

    Get it from Amazon for $6.47+ (available in 15 versions).

    36. A LifeStraw personal water filter so your adventurous loved one who lives to hike will always have access to fresh, clean water.

    Promising review: "Used it on a hike recently; tried different configurations as shown, with the drinking straight out of the river, and out of a wide-mouth bottle. The flow-rate through the LifeStraw is a little reminiscent of drinking a really thick milkshake, which is understandable considering the filter basically gets everything. When I filled up my Nalgene with water from the stream, I could see the sediment start to settle; I even made sure to get some with the straw just to see. Worked like a charm. You just need to remember to blow into it afterwards to clear out the straw." —Kingston

    Get it from Amazon for $15.81.

    37. Layered tassel earrings accompanied by a druzy stud to add some extra glam to your favorite fashionista's accessory game.


    Promising review: "These earrings are exactly what they look like! They are light and vibrant, and went perfectly with my dress for graduation. They are not falling apart or shedding like other similar earrings had earned reputations of doing (based on reviews). They hang at a good length and did not tickle my neck or annoy me by hitting my shoulders. I am glad I chose these earrings!" —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $13.99 (available in 27 colors).

    38. A faux fur throw blanket any homebody would be happy to receive — it's just about that time where it's acceptable to hibernate until the sun comes out again in April.


    Promising review: "SUPER soft throw! This throw is so soft and cozy that my whole family fights over it. The color is beautiful and it looks and feels much more expensive than it is. I have other much pricier throws and this one beats the expensive ones in every category. This throw is softer, warmer, bigger, and so much prettier in person. I want one in every color. Based on the way my family is fighting over it I might need one in every color! So far the cat is winning." —Kathy

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99+ (available in four sizes and 13 colors).

    39. An inexpensive cold brew maker so your caffeine-obsessed companion can make as much cold brew as they want (AKA... A LOT) without spending their entire paycheck.

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99.

    41. A Friday Night Football-inspired candle, perfect for your high school sweetheart. This special candle will make you both nostalgic for those brisk game days.


    Promising review: "Since I am a football coach, I first decided to buy this for my wife as a fun purchase for when she's not able to be at our games on Friday night. She loved it and was shocked at the quality of the candle and how good it actually smelled. I will definitely be a returning customer for this scent and others." —Bbtp

    Get it from Homesick for $29.95 or Amazon for $17.35.

    42. A subscription to Book of the Month because there are few things as exciting to a bibliophile as cracking open a hardcover book. Mmm, I can smell the freshly printed pages already.

    bookofthemonth / Via

    I was gifted a year of Book of the Month for my birthday one year, and to date it is one of the best things I've received. There are few things as satisfying as getting truly lost in the pages of a good book. Each month, they'll be permitted to choose one of four books, all of which are different genres. Then, the book they selected will be delivered to their door. Magic! Excuse me, I need to re-up my subscription.

    Get three months from Book of the Month for $49.99.

    43. A quirky necklace featuring a T-Rex charm they'll think is simply dino-mite.


    Promising review: "I purchased this necklace as a gift for a friend who loves dinosaurs. It was super cute and the little saying on the paper is nice too. The T-Rex itself is a little small but I liked that about it because it makes it more subtle when its worn (I tend to like nerdy jewelry that is more subtle until people really see it up close). The recipient loved it and put it on right away too." —melrom

    Get it from Amazon for $13 (available in three styles).

    44. A Swiss Army knife so they'll be prepared for anything! A hangnail? No problem. A loose thread on their fave sweater? Don't sweat it!

    Swiss Army Knife

    My husband has a plethora of Swiss Army knives (mainly because he forgets he has them on him and has them taken away before entering Ranger games). He's been a fan of the brand for as long as I can remember and always has one on him in case he needs to open a package or someone needs an impromptu screwdriver.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.89+ (available in 29 styles).

    45. And a butt mask for a makeshift spa night with a twist the two of you will really get a kick out of — with the added bonus of a smooth booty! Sounds like a win for all.

    Amazon, bawdybeauty / Via

    Promising review: "I love these because great skin isn't limited to just your face and neither should the products that facilitate it! These definitely infuse the area with essence like a facial sheet and offer a moisturizing, gently tightening effect so you know they're working! I have tried other products designed for the same area and these were by far the best and least messy." —fountainsoda

    Get a single mask from Amazon for $9.95+ (also available in a set of four).
