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 plastic 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 pizza in a double-seated rattan chair hanging in your backyard or a getaway trip to an exotic locale, we’ve got something for every type of relationship ahead. Let’s just say these gifts are guaranteed to make a major impression.
Gifting a bag doesn’t always have to go the route of luxury carryalls. A trendy purse that’s worthy of being featured in her next Instagram is just as good.
