News flash: February 14th is about a month away. With the treat-laden occasion that is Valentine’s Day in the crosshairs, you may be in the market for something special that you can present over a homemade dinner that doesn’t fall under the category of “stuffed toy that was obviously purchased at a national drugstore chain”. If you’re looking at all, then you likely want the gift to feel like a respite from the gendered token of a bygone romantic era, and more in step with your unique relationship.
With this in mind, we rounded up the little things (and a few big ones): all the must-have accessories for Netflix and chill; unexpected cards that feel unique, thoughtful, and heartfelt; and even some flower alternatives (both living and artificial) that will stand out among the traditional delivery of long-stem roses. Click through to find that special something for your special someone — no matter their gender or orientation.
