A Valentine's Day Gift Guide That Doesn't Suck

If you woke up with a sense of fear creeping into your brain, it’s probably because, yup, it’s Valentine’s Day shopping time again. As we’ve said before, the days of gifting chocolates and a card are long gone. It’s time to think outside the box, and lock in something special and unique that’s really going to impress.

Just like last year's list we’ve done the homework for you and prepped a batch of great gifts that are easy and affordable. Get ready to be a hero. You’re welcome.

For The Fashionista:
Literally Anything From Jo Malone - We've talked about the merits of the lovely wares from Jo Malone bedfore but we'll say it again, just do it. If you've got one stop (even a gift card if you're desperate!), this should probably be it. The ladies in the office couldn't stop raving about everything from this brand from the perfume to the candles.

For The Flower Gal:
A Terrarium or Succulent Kit From Terrain - At this point a bouquet of flowers is pretty old school, and you’re better than that. For a similar vibe try a unique plant-inspired gift from Terrain that’s not only cool but going to last a hell of a lot longer than a wilting pile of daisies.

A Perfume Subscription from Scent Bird - Scent Bird will send out a 30-day supply of perfume every month from some of the top luxury brands, including Burberry, Coach and Dolce & Gabbana.

It’s as simple as uploading a picture of yourself and your favorite girl to Puzzle You’s website, and select the size and number of puzzle pieces you prefer.

A Meal Delivery Subscription from Plated or Gobble - In addition to giving us rides anywhere we want when we’re drunk and delivering us food at a moment's notice, the internets are revolutionizing cooking.
