7 Memorable Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas for the One You Love

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and it’s time to pick out the perfect gift to woo the one you love.  Well, if you are into that sort of thing.  Maybe you’re like us and you kind of act like it’s no big deal and poke fun at it some years while other years you get all romantic and lovey-dovey.  Whether you take a serious approach to the big V or you take it on light-heartedly, it’s still nice to receive a thoughtful gift, right?

I know I won’t turn down flowers, chocolates, dinner, and diamonds (or any combination thereof).  Or.. just some sexy time. (You know you were thinking it too!)  Well, here are seven unique gift ideas that you can use (or forward to your partner to drop them a hint or two or three).

    I like your gift ideas – the geeky bouquet is so cute, and lasts longer than real flowers. The gift of time is always a good one. My take on it would be a day where you each take turns deciding what to do next. I would pick going to a museum in the city as one of my choices, and also a movie.

      I like the taking turns idea. We used to take turns planning our dates when we were dating.DarcyZalewski

    I like these ideas. I usually do baked goods gifts to send to loved ones. I have spent hours looking for the perfect Valentine’s Day gifts on a bigger level. Thanks for the great recommendations, perfect for most of the people on my list. I also found this roundup for jewelry: LINK REMOVED I love the zodiac constellation pendant. Hard to find unique gifts that will last through the years that are meaningful.

    The 8-bit flower bouquet is great, but he’s the geek…although if he got them for me, it would say and mean a lot (as the last time he got me flowers was when we celebrated our dating anniversaries…almost 16 years ago!).
