    She can't be stopped — and now your significant other doesn't have to either! I have a pair of these socks and they are super cozy but won't make your toes hot and sweaty. I love that they have a very subtle V-Day theme, so they can be worn all year long.

    Get it from Amazon for $15.

    3. A mug warmer, because if you're dating a busy-at-all-times coffee enthusiast they will love having a hot beverage on demand., Amazon

    We've all been there — making our coffee or tea only to set it down and forget about until it's cooled down completely. Thanks to this mug warmer none of us (including your partner) ever have to suffer through another cold cup of caffeine again! It has received over 3.8K five-star reviews on Amazon, so you know it's a big freakin' deal.

    Promising review: "I'm a chronic coffee forgetter. I can't drink it straight from the brewer (too hot for me) so I set my mug down to cool slightly and often get distracted. Of course I then come back to my coffee to find it's already cold. I've currently got the warmer at my office and it's working great. I can sip my coffee leisurely over the course of an hour and it's still nice and warm." —Elle

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    4. A set of nine lotus-inspired earrings that give off the look of a cuff but have the feel of a simple stud., Amazon

    This style of earring is so fun! I love that they are styled around lotus flowers and how unique each pair looks. Definitely need these in my life — and so does your special someone.

    Promising review: "This set was an incredible value for a beautiful selection of earrings. It’s cool how you put the post in your ear, then a dangle, then the earring back — it’s such an elegant look. The assortment is lovely, including some earrings that are fancier and some more casual. Excellent collection! Highly recommend! A+." —J. McKeon

    Get a set of nine from Amazon for $11.99.

I have a ton of candles from this brand (they're my go-to gift for everyone) and can assure it is a fantastic product.

    Get it from Evil Queen for $28.

    6. A lightsaber tie, so your Star Wars-loving boo can feel the force even when they're stuck plugging away at their stuffy desk job.


    What says "I'm a professional" but also "I've been obsessed with Darth Vader for my entire life?" This tie, naturally. It features dueling lightsabers that will impress any Star Wars fan, regardless of whether they favor the dark side or the light.

    Promising review: "An amazing tie, I get compliments all the time! The color is great as well as the length of the tie. The quality is outstanding and it looks amazing even in a professional environment. For the nerd that wants to keep it professional." —Christopher Avila

    Get it from Amazon for $20.39+ (available in sizes regular and extra long and in four colors).

    7. A blanket scarf they can wrap around their neck for warmth or unfold and use as a makeshift blanket for the two of you., Amazon

    Who wants to snuggle?! Pick up this scarf for a very reasonable price and get ready to make your love's coziest dreams come true.

    Promising review: "I bought this scarf because I am an everyday scarf-wearer in the cooler weather. I think this scarf compliments every outfit I put it with. It is not small, it is thick, and the colors look exactly like the picture. I like that I can use it as a shawl and not just a scarf. I've received many compliments wearing this scarf. I'm actually wearing it today because it was snowing! It is long enough where I can tie it in different ways and doesn't look or feel cheap. The scarf does not scratch at my neck. If you are looking for a quality scarf, I would recommend. I will be purchasing another!" —Williams

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99 (available in nine styles).

    8. A Queen Elizabeth II Funko Pop, perfect for the person who can recite "God Save the Queen" in their sleep.


    Is your significant other constantly giving you updates like "Kate Middleton wore a fabulous blue dress today" or "Did you see that new photo of Prince Louis?!" If so, they are sure to gush over this mini figure of the Queen herself. I have one on my desk and my coworkers can't stop cooing over the accompanying corgi.

    Promising review: "Over the years I've kept an eye on Funko Pop to see if they'd come out with a collectible I'd like. When I discovered that they were going to make a Queen Elizabeth II that came with a corgi figure as well I almost fainted! Such a nice added touch to include one of the Queen's corgis! The feather on her hat is also a nice attention to detail and makes this figurine stand out." —lovescorgis

    Get it from Amazon for $9.81.

    9. A mug inspired by The Office and Michael's one-sided ~love affair~ with Ryan, sure to make any fan of the show smile.


    Michael's affection for Ryan may have even been greater than Kelly's flat-out obsession with him. Show the special someone in your life that you are ALSO freakishly into them by comparing your relationship to one that never happened on The Office. Trust me, they'll love it!

    Get it from TheSunnyHunnyBee on Etsy for $12+ (available in 11 oz. or 15 oz).

    10. A long, durable charging cable, because you can't put a price on the joy that comes from being able to lie in bed and charge your phone comfortably at the same time.


    Facts: My husband actually did gift me one of these for a holiday and it was surprisingly sweet. He was tired of watching me struggle to charge my phone and successfully scroll through Instagram at the same time, so he wired this extra long cable behind our bed for easy access. Your sweetie is sure to appreciate this small gesture as much as I did.

    Promising review: "I LOVE my AmazonBasics charging cord. We all know Apple wires fray and break easily. I went on Amazon and saw these lifesaving devices. They come in 6-foot and 3-foot (I prefer 6-foot just because it is longer) and lots of cute colors. I can always tell which cord is mine and it is SUPER DURABLE. —frenchielove43

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in four sizes and five colors).

    11. A quirky coffee table book that will have your cat-loving S.O. feline inspired.

    Promising review: "This is a delightful and charming book. I gave it to my son and his husband for their anniversary, as they are both cat men. If you have ever admired a cat, you cannot help but be enchanted by the short, entertaining bios of famous men who have loved their felines. Some bios are really surprising! The artwork is whimsical but accurate and complements the text. A wonderful book. More than just a 'coffee table' item." —N. Huber

    Promising review: "I purchased these bath bombs because I was looking for an alternative to Lush. I'm a school teacher, I need relaxation without the price tag of around $7 a bomb! I was very excited to see that these bombs are handmade in the United States. They also are made of ingredients that are familiar to me. I ordered with Prime so they arrived in two days, as promised. The packaging is very simple. The bombs were well protected during their journey. None of mine felt broken. I could smell them through the box! Very strong yet awesome scents. They have a small sticker with the names of each bomb on the individual wrappers. I tried 'Fun on the Beach' first. My entire bathroom smells amazing! My water is a hot pink/purple color. The bomb took about two minutes to dissolve entirely. I am so excited to try them all! —Kelsea McKinzie

    Get it from Amazon for $26.80.

    Promising review: "THIS HAS MADE A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE! I can't even tell you how annoyed I was getting having to move the box out and switch it over to the Roku. It was bad. I broke a lot of things, a lot of times. Now I just push a button. Every time I do I feel so spoiled. It seems silly but I really do recommend it for everyone who's been struggling going back and forth!" —Book Junkie

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    15. A Harry Potter patronus light that is sadly going to replace you as the light of your beloved's life as soon as you gift it to them.


    This light is ~magical~, to put it lightly. Your significant other will love bringing this piece of the wizarding world into their room and feeling badass as they shout "EXPECTO PATRONUM!" each time they turn it on.

    Get it from ThinkGeek for $12.94.

    16. An external battery charger, so your main squeeze can continue to blow up your phone at all hours of the day and night.

    Amazon an endearing way, obviously. With over 1,800 five-star reviews, this external battery is just what your significant other needs. Whether they lose power or simply enter such a cozy state they can't bear the thought of getting out of bed to charge their phone, this product is essential for keeping their battery charged.

    Promising review: "This bad boy holds a lot of power for charging iPhones multiple times (like on a long journey away from power). Plus it holds a charge pretty well. Rechargeable lithium batteries are known to leak power over time and this will, too, but the capacity is so high that the leakage is inconsequential. I charged mine and let it sit for a month without using it. It still showed four of four dots and recharged to the top fairly quickly (sorry, I didn’t time it)." —Steve B

    Get it from Amazon for $23.95.

    17. A personalized reusable Starbucks cup any caffeine fiend will adore., Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    18. An "I Drink and I Know Things" key chain that the Game of Thrones fan you're dating will appreciate as much as Tyrion Lannister does wine.


    Is your significant other obsessing over return of Game of Thrones this April? Then that's a surefire sign they'd love adding this key chain to their jingling collection. Added bonus? They'll probs be less likely to lose their apartment keys ... again.

    Get it from BoxLunch for $8.90.

    19. A metallic peel-off face mask for a makeshift spa night you guys can enjoy together while indulging in your latest Netflix binge.


    What is better than making your fave person feel pampered and cared for? Not much. Which is why this product checks multiple boxes. This shimmering Disco Kitten Mask is painted on then peeled off to reveal illuminated skin. This will be so much fun for you and your S.O. to test out together.

    Promising review: "One of the best peel-off masks I have used. Scent is really light and pleasant, not overpowering. Skin definitely looks brighter and more radiant after use. Does not irritate my very sensitive skin, and it actually peels off very easily!!! There is probably enough for about 10 total applications. Will absolutely be purchasing again!" —Jennifer S.

    Get it from Amazon for $23.

    20. A five-year diary that will encourage your soft-spoken, introverted partner to ~express~ themselves.


    Journaling can be very soothing and therapeutic — I swear by it. If your significant other is looking for a way to unwind from a busy week full of socializing, this is a great place to start. This version features pretty watercolor celestial artwork on the front and glitzy gilded edges.

    Promising review: "This book is gorgeous in person. The photos can’t do justice to the way it catches the light or the way the padded cover feels in your hands. It’s small enough to carry with me, which makes it much more likely I’ll remember to write in it. The inside is as nice as the outside and the pages have character without too much distracting detail. I’ve had a five-year journal before but I’m truly excited to start writing in this one." —Eros

    Get it from Amazon for $15.26.

    21. A cold-brew maker, guaranteed to make the coffee fanatic in your relationship swoon.

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed, Amazon

    Help your better half save some cash moneyyyy (so they can pay for your next date night) by gifting them an easy-to-use French press. They'll be able to get their caffeine fix without breaking the bank, which is essentially a gift to both of you.

    Promising review: "We use this all the time in my house. A little less than when I initially bought it, as there's less call for cold brew in the winter, but it still gets some use. I generally prefer glass to plastic in my kitchen, but the body of it seems to have held up well despite extensive and extended use. I certainly recommend it if you're looking tired of making cold brew at home with the mason jar method but still don't want to spill the cash for a fancier-than-necessary alternative." —Matthew Baird

    24. A set of personalized coasters featuring your love's favorite snapshots (or maybe the most embarrassing ones you can find...hehe).


    Whether your partner is a photographer or simply loves surrounding themselves with pics of friends and family, this is a gift they will appreciate. Designed to look like old-school Polaroid photos, these coasters can be filled with whatever yo want! Put your loved one's pet on one, their parents on another, and of course finish it off with a cute selfie of you guys together. Love!

    Promising review: "I love these coasters! I was concerned that it would be difficult to get pictures in but had no problems and used the sample photos as a cutting guide. I've placed snapshots from my travels in the slots and love the potential they have to be conversation starters and how the coasters match and personalize my home decor." —L. C. Lee

    Get it from Amazon for $12.

    25. A waterproof speaker, so your better half can happily continue to belt out Taylor Swift songs in the shower, but now with a more supportive soundtrack.


    I rarely shower without music — it completely changes the vibe! Whether your S.O. likes to amp themselves up for the day with upbeat pop music or chill out with soothing tunes, this speaker will make all the difference in their shower experience.

    Promising review: "Exactly what I was looking for... I just wanna sing in the dang shower to my heart's content. Glad that it comes with a little D-ring to hang it up; suction cups don't work in my shower. Excellent sound, easy to use, great value. My poor dog disagrees — they're now subject to my singing." —emjoy75

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in four colors).

    26. A book pin that will let your partner express their love for literature on their denim jacket or backpack.

    Get it from IceyDesigns on Etsy for $9.85.

    27. An adorable phone-charger clamp, excellent for preventing cords from getting tangled and for making your loved one giggle each time they glance at their phone.


    I mean, how could you possibly not smile looking at these precious animals? It's a tiny gesture, but one that will save your significant other from buying a new charging cord every other month.

    Promising review: "I ordered the chameleon chomper for one of my charging cords — prior to adding the chomper to my cord I was holding my phone in such a way that was causing the wire to bend harshly and eventually it ripped open and the inner wires were exposed. After getting a new cord, I realized it was something that I was just going to keep doing, so I ordered the chomper and it has absolutely stopped the cord from bending in a way that would cause it to break again." —Borderline Superhero

    Get it from Amazon for $4.81+ (available in 30 styles).

    28. A mystical horoscope T-shirt that will leave your astrology-obsessed partner starry-eyed.

    Promising review: "Husband is from Miami. When he opened his gift, he looked at me like, 'Why did you buy me a candle?' I said. 'SMELL IT!' He started naming off things back home of which the smell reminded him, and immediately lit the candle. Love it! Highly recommend." —tabracadabra

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in 15 styles).

    30. A snuggly avocado-shaped heating pad that's the perfect gift if your significant other is always complaining about how cold they are.

    Urban Outfitters

    Heating pads are a must-have all year round, but when they really shine is during extra-cold winter days. This one is the cutest one I've ever seen and can be used as both a heat pack and a cold one. You can find me using this lil' friend to warm up my toes during the next blizzard — and probably your S.O. as well.

    Promising review: "I bought this as a gift for one of my very best friends who is obsessed with avocados... I just thought it was funny. It arrived and it smells AMAZING, it’s incredibly soft, and now I don’t want to give it away." —littlestwolf

    31. An "I can go the distance" Hercules patch to motivate your S.O. to go that extra mile (either metaphorically or IRL).


    This is the most motivating song in Disney history (in my opinion). I've used this to pump myself up before an interview, to encourage myself to finish running that 5K on the treadmill, and to just cheer myself up. If your loved one is anything like me, you'll definitely want to add this patch to their collection.

    Get it from CharmedAndCozy on Etsy for $8.

Sometimes I want something intricate to focus on while the world around me is being annoying. Sometimes I want something quick and easy. And some days I just want to color in pictures with silly words. This book allows me to do all of the above. I seriously want to find the author and give her a hug. And maybe buy her a drink. Because she gets it." —MissyBissy

    Get it from Amazon for $5.24.

    33. A poster that perfectly depicts the phrase any Fortnite player utters at least 20x per gaming session, ideal if your S.O. is obsessed with this game.


    I cannot begin to tell you how many times I've heard my husband say, "Where we landing?!" and naively think that he's speaking to me, but in reality he's just addressing his friends on Fortnite. He, and any Fortnite fanatic, would thoroughly receiving this poster to hang on their wall.

    Promising review: "Wooooow. Print quality is fantastic. It arrived well-packaged, a day earlier than expected. I framed it in 'frameless' glass and it looks fantastic. Fortnite fan should love the Llama! Thank you." —annapolprior

    Promising review: "Amazing. Pushes all the gunk to the surface of your pores, then you can exfoliate it the rest of the way out or it will come out on its own after a few washes. I have tried several other charcoal products but none did this. I'm seriously so impressed and going to use this stuff indefinitely." —Carolina Coleman

    Get it from Amazon for $8.98 (also available as a two-pack).

    36. A delicate initial necklace for the person who prefers simple jewelry they can wear every day., Amazon

    Promising review: "I was in search of a small disc pendant with an initial — I just got married and am fully embracing my new last name. For the price and quality, I am FLOORED by Pavoi.
