    8. Lounge pants you might want to buy for each of you — why should matching PJs only be a *thing* for Christmas cards?

    10. A roll-on migraine stick to nip their pain in the bud before it gets out of hand and ruins a perfectly good Valentine's Day.

    11. A 12-inch foam roller they'll surprisingly get a lot of use out of, even if they aren't a gym rat. It's perfect for loosening the muscles in their back/legs after sitting at a desk all day (or stress-induced tension).

    12. Cute cat index tabs that'll bring a smile to your friend's face, even if they're overwhelmed and flipping through important documents for work when they'd much rather be on a romantic date.

    17. A stainless-steel ring that doubles as a fidget spinner to help keep your pal calm, cool, and collected in stressful times.

    18. Or a more stylish version they can add into their daily accessories — when they spin it they'll unveil a secret motivational message.

    19. A gift card to Gobble that'll take all the stress out of making dinner for the week. There'll be none of the irritating back and forth of "what should we have for dinner?" when they've already hand selected their meals and had the ingredients delivered to their door.

    20. A massage roller they can use to apply acupressure on the bothersome parts of their feet to make them feel fantastic before heading off to bed. It's so easy to use they can roll away without taking their eyes off of the latest series of The Crown.

    21. A triangular bar of soap made with organic essential oils, that'll help anyone decompress and take a literal breather while they shower.

    22. A throw pillow case cover to make them giggle or provide them with a place to scream about their ex on Valentine's Day without their neighbors hearing. Goodbye, pent-up aggression.
