    1. A set of metal dice so pretty they're sure to enchant bards, dragonborns, and clerics alike.

    Promising review: “These are beautiful! My first set of metal dice, and I chose the black and silver to match a dice box I already have. The dice arrived individually bagged so at to prevent any potential scratching, and came with a nice felt dice bag for travel. The numbers look great and are very easy to read. Holding and rolling these heavy dice feels very satisfying. I'd recommend rolling into a tray or with a tower or something though because the metal corners could potentially put dents in a wooden table. But beautiful dice like these deserve a nice rolling tray anyway! Highly recommended, and I will probably be ordering a few different sets of these to use as gifts for my players in the future.” —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $20.99 (available in 31 colors, including glow in the dark).

    2. A Tardis coffee press perfect for cozy weekend mornings with your companion.


    Get it from ThinkGeek for $39.99.

    3. A Mjolnir meat tenderizer because whoever possesses the power of gonna make a delicious steak on date night.


    Promising review: “It's a meat mallet... it's Thor's hammer... it's really cool and really functional and has a nice grip. Great for any Avengers fan. Lots of fun!” —Laurel Nevans

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    4. A set of giant microbes sure to inspire this conversation: "So, what are you gonna get them for Valentine's Day?" "Oh, just a few STDs."


    The box contains giant versions of HPV, herpes, chlamydia, pox, and penicillin.

    Promising review: “My wife got this as a Valentine's gift. She absolutely loved it. She works in a lab and loves this stuff.” —Charlie Ganka

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    5. A pair of Game of Thrones wine glasses that are sure to get some good use as you watch the final season.

    Promising review: “What a nice product. In addition to being a great idea for Game of Thrones fans (it's always good when your sweetheart loves something you buy) the quality is great also. It's nice to see REAL engraving rather than the painted on frosted finish (that is of questionable durability at best).” —Alfred Knystautas

    Get the set from Amazon for $36.96.

    6. A Bulbasaur planter because they'll always be your 001.

    You can plant a real succulent in this lil' guy (get a pack of 5 from Amazon for $15.95) or, if you have the opposite of a green thumb, cut off the top of an artificial rose ($5 on Amazon) for a romantic and long-lasting gift.

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in two colors).

    7. An oxytocin necklace that'll literally cause their oxytocin levels to rise when they receive it! Pair it with a hug for an extra boost.

    MolecularMotifs / Etsy

    Get it from MolecularMotifs on Etsy for $27+ (available in three finishes, three lengths, and with the option to add 12 different gemstones).

    8. A book cover pouch perfect for anyone who's always had a healthy appreciation for wet Colin Firth coming out of the lake (or Keira Knightley walking across the moors in that coat. No? Just me?)

    Promising review: “A wonderful gift for the librarian or book lover in your life. These are sturdy and bigger than they look. Excellent quality and detail. They come with a cute little out of print tag that adds to their charm as gifts. You'll love these.” —Kelli Perkins

    Get it from Amazon for $12 (available in 22 prints, including Bunnicula and Edgar Allan Poe-ka dots).

    9. A telescope for stargazing dates that'll go over great whether bae is into astronomy or astrology.


    Promising review: “Bought this for my wife as a way to get away in our backyard. Between wildlife, the moon, and future lunar eclipses, this is exactly what we thought we would getting. You can see the craters on the moon clearly, the stand is solid enough for being travel ready, and it is easily focused.” —Matthew Medalia

    Get it from Amazon for $52.95+ (available in three sizes).

    10. An art print with exactly what you said the first time bae said "I love you!" How'd they do that? (Just kidding. We all only wish we could be as cool as Han.)

    Promising review: “This is so awesome! I ordered the 'I love you... I know' poster and with it came an extra smaller portrait of them both. It was such a surprise! I got this for my boyfriend for Valentine’s Day and I know he’s going to love it! I am wonderfully excited about this product and the free gift included. The quality of the photos are also hefty material. Wonderful product!! 👍🏻♥️” —Mackenzie Holley

    Get it from Amazon for $25 (the frame isn't included — get one from Amazon for $13.99)

    11. A tiny (playable!) arcade game that'll ensure you won't get ghosted. Because you ate them all.


    Promising review: “As someone who grew up during the golden arcade age this is a dream come true. Anyone you know who loves Pac-Man, or any of these classics, probably does not know it exists. Give them one as a gift and watch their expression. They will gush over how it looks just like the arcade machine. They probably will expect to see a cheap LED display like we had as kids. Minds will be blown to see a real screen and fully functioning game. As someone who spent a lot of time around the classics, I have seen a few of them serviced and was always awed by the size and complexity of the motherboards to play these games. To see them totally shrunk down to pocket size is mind blowing.” —tron3

    Get it from Amazon for $14.47+ (available in seven games).

    12. A pair of geeky socks with a pattern they're sure to love, whether they're super into math, art history, or anything in between.


    Promising review: “These are absolutely hilarious! My husband recently completed his PhD and I got him a few gag gifts to celebrate. These were his favorite item. They're comfortable (which is not always the case with novelty socks) and subtle enough that he actually wear them with his suits. In all a great gift for any nerd with a penchant for novelty socks!” —Eric B.

    Get a pair from Amazon for $10 (available in 15 styles).

    13. A set of mini lab flasks to add a little ~scientific flair~ to your shots, whether they're tequila or espresso.


    Promising review: “I bought these for my boyfriend and he loved them. These really look exactly like the picture, and you can use them for both espresso shots and alcoholic ones. They wash in the dishwasher quite well, though hand washing isn't a problem. The glass is fairly thick, so when he dropped it once, it didn't break. We're both loving these! Very good quality. Exactly what I was expecting.” —L

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $12.22.

    14. A real heart necklace because the classic red one is totally overplayed, tbh.

    Promising review: “I gifted this to my girlfriend, because I wasn't confident in choosing a piece of girly jewelry for her. Part of the gift was also a puzzle box (4 sun), that I placed the heart inside. She happens to love cheesiness. It took her quite a while to figure out how to open the puzzle box, but when she did I said "This is my heart for you. You have it all locked up," and she was puddled with joy. I think she will find a cute drawstring bag for it and carry it around as a token from me. As a side note, I am a medical student, and I had previously invited this girlfriend to our cadaver lab, where I made her hold a human heart. So, the anatomical heart has some unique memories attached to it!” —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $29.97.

    15. An official Harry Potter quill you can use to write them a love letter. Or a Hogwarts acceptance letter (on second thought, they might like that better).


    Promising review: “Bought this as a gift to go along with a wax stamp set ($11). It was even better than I expected and made a beautiful and fun gift. Looks very nice on a writing desk.” —danielle

    Get it from Amazon for $39.

    16. A Legend of Zelda cartridge that's not just a cool throwback, it's also a secret flask.


    Promising review: “This is such a fun and unique gift for all your nerdy, sneaky friends! My husband loved the nostalgia mixed with alcohol themed gift. The product is great quality, and they really designed everything perfectly. What a cool gift! I love it, thank you.” —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $18.05.

    17. A Bob's Burgers coloring book (with included stickers!) to help them wait until you get home to watch the newest episode.

    Promising review: “I love to color in these pages. The scenes are wonderful and give you some large areas, as well as small details to color in. I enjoy it more than some of the other adult coloring books I have, as you can work on small details and then move to bigger things to give your hand a break. I absolutely recommend this coloring book to anyone who is a fan of Bob's Burgers.” —Jeannine W

    Get it from Amazon for $11.52 and get a set of colored pencils, also from Amazon for $8.90.

    18. A set of cookie cutters because while everyone debates whether pie is better than cake, you know that a pi cookie tops them both.

    Promising review: “They are high quality silicone with a thickness that makes it easy to use the cutters. The designs are pretty funny as well. I'm a big video gamer (both retro and modern) so the eight bit heart I definitely foresee being used for my birthday by my wife in the future. These are great and high quality. The cookie stamp worked great. It was neat to be able to apply a texture to the cookie and added a little uniqueness to an otherwise simple item.” —T.L.

    Get the set from Amazon for $10.32.

    19. A Wonder Woman blanket that'll make your snuggle sessions super.


    Promising review: “I have had a Superman version of this for years. In the last year of marriage, my wife has used it more than I have. As gifts, people have bought us Superman and Wonder Woman kitchen aprons, so I thought I'd repeat the set for our lounging attire. I gave this to my wife for her birthday. She loves it and uses it constantly! Now that the weather's getting colder, I don't have to find something else to keep me warm while we watch a movie; we've each got our own.” —Oran

    Get it from Amazon for $22.93 (available in seven heroes).

    20. A Warp Pipe koozy to keep your drinks cool, even if you mis-time your jump and fall into the lava.


    Promising review: “Great buy for any Mario Bros fan. Bought this koozy for my wife for Christmas. She loves it! Its not spongy like a cheap koozy would be. I was surprised by the good build quality. It would look great as a decorative piece as well.” —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    21. A Rick and Morty mug that'll reveal a new background when they pour their hot coffee into it. No word on whether it works with Szechuan Sauce.


    Promising review: “Bought this mug as a birthday present for my boyfriend. He loves it, he was so excited to try it out and see the heat changing action — we weren't disappointed. I'd definitely recommend this as a gift for any Rick and Morty fans!” —Andrea M. Pugliese

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95.

    22. A pair of superhero slippers they're definitely going to want to wear out of the house.


    Promising review: “My 49-year-old boyfriend flipped, and is now the envy of little boys everywhere. Only issue is, the dogs definitely believe these are for them.” —CAFolk

    Get a pair from Amazon for $34.99+ (available in sizes XS-XL and seven heroes).

    23. A chocolate video game controller that'll help you unlock the cheat codes to their heart.

    The Sugar Club / Etsy

    Get it from The Sugar Club on Etsy for $13.14 (available in three flavors).

    24. A Yoda card that'll inspire them to say, "Be my Valentine, you must."

    aaronmillard / Etsy

    Get it from aaronmillard on Etsy for $5.52.

    If Urkel can do it, so can you.
