Unless the giver can find a gift that is personally significant to the receiver, it’s difficult to buy a Valentine’s Day gift that isn’t your typical holiday cliché. My personal take is that small gifts (i.e. jewelry and other little luxuries like fine chocolates and macarons) are best. It’s always fun to open a tiny box with a treasure inside. I generally eschew anything with hearts as too saccharine, but I make exceptions for hearts presented in a novel way. I prefer to temper sweetness with a bit of spunk, a tongue-in-cheek take on this overhyped holiday. Here are some Valentine’s Day presents that I suggest. I know I would be particularly delighted to receive the first item!
