    Good luck navigating that awkward situation.

    If you're looking for something small to gift β€” that's not overly sentimental β€” here are 13 things you can give your Valentine's.

    1. This headphone cable splitter, because taking a walk while listening to the same playlist is oh-so-romantic (and cheap!).


    Kudos to the brilliant "Begin Again" for this adorable idea. Give me this over a fancy dinner and drinks any day. If you're not sure about what to do after work this Valentine's Day β€” and all the restaurants, cinemas and putt putt golf courses are full β€” just pull this out and suggest a walk around the city, learning each other's favourite songs.

    2. This mini-cast iron skillet, which ideally, you will cook brekkie or dessert in for them.


    Cast iron skillets are the preferred pans of many professional chefs, due to the even distribution of heat across the entire surface and unparalleled heat retention. This one features lips on either side for easy pouring and at 3.5" in diameter, is perfect for cooking a sweet dessert for two.

    If you're looking for inspiration on what you can make your date with your cast iron skillet, here are 21 recipes you can start with.

    3. This bouquet of a dozen chocolate roses, because you guys are more cheeky than sentimental as a couple.

    Edible Blooms

    If you're the type to turn up your nose at flowers β€” which inevitably die β€” try this bouquet of chocolates, which, at the very least, will fill your date's belly before being thrown away. Buy as is, or choose to fill with Ferrero Rochers, Lindt chocolate balls and star-shaped Belgian chocolates for just a bit more coin.

    Buy a dozen chocolate roses from $39 from Edible Blooms.

    4. This posy of flowers from Little Flowers, because bouquets needn't be extravagant to be romantic.

    Promising review: "My husband has been sending me flowers from this company for years β€” on the first day of a new job, birthdays and yes, Valentine's Day. I love receiving flowers and he hates the way roses are always overpriced come February 14th β€” Little Flowers allows him to dodge exxy prices and the problem of choosing specific flowers as it's all done for him!"

    β€”Mariela Summerhays

    Buy a small posy for $35 from Little Flowers.

    5. This scratch-off world map for them to keep track of where in the world they've been and where they still have to go β€” maybe with you?


    I mean, I don't know how serious you guys are, but depending on how swept up in the honeymoon phase you are, you could gift this with plans to go on your first trip together? If that's nowhere in the realm of possibility, they'll still appreciate this scratchable world map, which doubles as wall art and a plan tracker.

    6. This wine aerator and decanter, which will give you the best glass of wine every time – though you just picked the bottle up from Aldi.


    This ergonomically-designed device adds the perfect amount of air into wine and removes any sediment. Simply pour wine from the bottle, through the device and into your glass. Pair this with a homemade dinner and the fact you no longer drink wine out of a goon bag β€” your date is going to be so impressed.

    7. These ~rose-tinted glasses~, because you guys are still in the honeymoon stage and you like it that way.

    The Iconic

    It's casual, it's punny, useful and not overly-sentimental β€” cute, right? Milky tortoiseshell frames hold rose-purple round lenses, both versatile and trendy at once. They'll never get out and about without thinking of you (just as you planned it).

    Buy now for $79 from The Iconic.

    8. This '90s tee nightie from Cotton On, because you actually hate when they wear your shirts to bed, but don't actually want to have the conversation.

    Cotton On

    Okay, I totally thought of myself when I found this shirt β€” I am absolutely guilty of wearing my husband's tees to bed, so that in the morning he has nothing to wear. This tee nightie is made of pure cotton and is cut in a boxy, oversized fit, so is just as comfy your shirts β€” so they'll have no excuse not to wear it. They not a fan of The Beatles? It also comes in a Disney print.

    Buy for $24.99 from Cotton On.

    9. These pearl drop earrings, because it's waaay too soon for diamond rings, but you still want them to feel special.

    Mariela Summerhays / BuzzFeed, Myer

    Promising review: "I'm a big fan of statement earrings as part of an everyday outfit. I wear these with a double denim look and bare face, all the time. I love everything about this β€” the gold and pearl detail is just so decadent. Plus, considering the quality, it's so affordable β€” I buy something from Bling Bar whenever I need to gift my friends something."

    β€”Mariela Summerhays

    Buy for $55 from Myer.

    10. This cold brew coffee bottle, because in the case of not wanting to get out of bed in the morning, you'll still have excellent coffee to offer.


    Delicious cold brew coffee is easy to make with this minimalist coffee bottle. Cold water immersion brewing produces coffee with noticeably less acidity and bitterness, so it's no wonder that plenty of people are making the move over from regular coffee. Offer your Valentine this the morning after your date β€” a whole lot of fancy for very little effort.

    Buy for $43.79 from Amazon Australia.

    11. This pack of Game of Thrones tarot cards, to settle once and for all who would sit on the Iron Throne (you, of course).


    Maybe the two of you first bonded over a love of Game of Thrones (I actually liked Cersei and Jamie's death, don't @ me). These beautiful lino-printed cards match each show character to a tarot archetype, and come with a guide that explains how to interpret each card and do a reading.

    Buy a pack of 78 cards for $29.15 from Amazon Australia.

    12. This Gucci Bloom Nettare De Fiori Eau De Parfum, because romance has as much to do with scent as it does anything else.

    Mariela Summerhays / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "If your partner, like me, loves a musky floral scent, this one is the most sexy of the lot. It has top notes of ginger rose and jasmine, as well as base notes of patcholi, musks and osmanthus. I always feel so damn feminine wearing this scent."

    β€”Mariela Summerhays

    Buy 50ml for $170 or 100ml for $225 from Myer.

    13. And finally, this waterproof picnic backpack, because all the restaurants are booked out and now you have to pretend you intended on taking them on a picnic all along.


    It might be old school, but honestly, picnics are a classic date for a reason. Do away with soggy sandwiches, throw in some deli meats, red wine and fancy cheeses and you have yourself a good time. This backpack comes with a bottle opener, salt and pepper shakers, a chopping board, a picnic blanket and stainless steel cutlery, dinner plates, cotton napkins and wine glasses for four β€” so if you want to double date, you can.

    Buy for $99.99 from Amazon Australia.

    Your date, after receiving any of these gifts.
