R29 Wish List: 24 V-Day Gifts For Guys & Girls

Here at R29 HQ, editors Annie Georgia Greenberg and Kristian Laliberte are office BFFs. But that doesn't mean they don't get a little heated when it comes to gifting. And though the Christmas giving season is way over, there's another holiday on the horizon that calls for some choice loot.
To get in on the deskside banter, we tapped the duo to share their ultimate V-Day wish lists in categories ranging from sweet treats to sexy-time finds. Yes, this is what they're dreaming of, but these his-'n'-her picks can double as your cheat sheet when it comes to wrapping time. Okay, so love may be all you need, but even Cupid wants a little somethin'-somethin' once in a while.
