19 romantic Valentine’s Day gifts that defy clichs

It’s not that there’s anything wrong with a box of chocolates or flowers on Valentine’s Day: Some things are clichés for a reason, and who doesn’t love being the envy of the office when a surprise bouquet of flowers is delivered to your cubicle, or getting to binge-eat a massive heart-shaped box of sweets? 

But flowers die, and chocolates get eaten. (Probably pretty quickly, if we’re being honest.) Even a gourmet meal, one of the cornerstones of the holiday, lasts only a couple of hours. 

Luckily, there are tons of incredibly romantic gift ideas out there — gifts you can keep enjoying without an expiration date. We’ve scoured the web for the best of the best, keeping in mind that not all couples define “romance” the same way. For some people, nothing says “I love you” like a gift that literally says “I love you.” Others prefer the same message spelled out in other ways, like through an activity that can be done together, or an item that shows you really know their personality. Some people embrace their inner cheeseball year-round, lavishing their significant other with adorable gifts on a weekly basis. While others are really only prepared for this level of cornball-ery once a year, so we like to make it count. 

We’ve read hundreds of reviews and picked gifts that suit partners at every stage of a relationship, from couples who have built lives together, to those who are still charting the fragile terrain between “casual hookup buddy” and something more serious. Do you live with your boo, or are they hundreds of miles away? Somewhere in between? We’ve got ideas for that, too. Below are our top picks.
