We can’t lie—traditionally, the idea of Valentine’s Day makes us internally cringe. Count us all in for regular (and consistent) displays of affection, acts of service, and demonstrations of love, but there’s something about the most romantically-loaded holiday of the year that suddenly makes us pull a blank when selecting the right type of gift.
And while we’re all for flowers, chocolates, and dinner dates, if you’re looking for a non-lame gift that will upgrade your lovers-life beyond the 14th of Feb, you’ve come to the right place. Whether you want to treat your favourite person to something special, source a practical gift they’ll use on the reg, or you’re all about those *ahem* bedside table treasures, keep reading below for 22 Valentine’s Day gift ideas sure to impress.
