The Best Valentine's Day Gifts For Every Type Of Relationship

Even if you’re not the type to buy into the Valentine’s Day hoopla, it's always nice to scoop up a little something for your S.O. And since time’s kind of ticking away here, we figured we’d help you out before February 14 hits you empty-handed. We know no two relationships are the same, which means while some partners may have their fingers crossed for jewelry, others are happy with a budget friendly framed photo of the two of you. So instead of giving you an array of flower bouquets and pendant necklaces, we've rounded up a few present ideas for the more adventurous gift givers (or those who know their other half really, really well).

Whether your idea of a date night is takeout Chinese food eaten exclusively on the floor of your apartment or a spur-of-the-moment getaway to an exotic locale (something we all need right about now), we’ve got something for every type of relationship ahead. Let's just say that these gifts are guaranteed to make a major impression.
At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.
