For some, giving a special valentine gift is an easy task. Find a heart-shaped box of chocolates and some flowers and you’re good to go. But if that sound cliché to you or want to find a gift that is as unique as you are, we’ve got you covered. Check out this great pop culture finds!
A Twist on Dozen Roses
Sure, you could give your significant other a dozen “regular” roses or you could blitz their yard with a dozen “Golden Girl” roses from Prime Party. Each “Rose” measures 12″ Wide x 23″Tall and a sign that says “A Dozen Roses Just for You!” along with 13 metal yard H-stakes. They are made of commercial-grade corrugated plastic material so it will hold up in all weather conditions. Ink is fade resistant and provides a nice smooth glossy finish. Or you could “Bob Mob” someone you love with 14 Bob Ross heads!
Another floral option comes from Cratejoy. Give your lover a subscription for a bouquet of premium flowers every month from Bold Blossums. They’ll pick the best flowers and ship them straight to their door.
Underwear That’s Fun to Wear
Some married folks appreciate receiving sexy lingerie, others not so much. Fun.com offers his-and-her briefs from Two Left Feet. The soft cotton “Air Hearts” Trunk Boxer Briefs for the guy and Hipster for the girl make a lovely couple. And there’s no reason why you can’t wear them any time of the year.
Or how do you feel about matching t-shirts? Ript Apparel is offering a fantastic Valentine’s Day sale featuring a huge line of creative one-of-a-kind artwork including these two from The Walmazan Collection. Spice up your love life with salsa and chip or share your utter devotion with PB and jelly. Buy one and get one 50% off (if you order by February 8).
Get Lost in Love
You’ll never forget your Let’s Roam adventure. Their team of explorers carefully craft exciting experiences in 400+ cities across the globe. With wanderers like you in mind, they create digitally guided scavenger hunts designed to help you explore, laugh, discover, and connect. Memory making at its funnest. You can get 10% your first order too.
Be a Character
Whether its Mickey and Minnie or Belle and Beast, Fun.com offers a bunch of romantic fun with characters you love. Choose Funko Star Wars characters in pink red ready for the day including Darth Vader, Chewbacca, Yoda and even a Stormtrooper. Color your own romantic story with the A Princess Bride coloring book. Put together a puzzle picture of love with Disney couples. Have you knocked the socks off your loved one? Get them a pair of Nightmare Before Christmas socks featuring Jack Skellington and Sally or how about a Funko set from Disney’s Princess and the Frog? These are just a few of the clever characters Fun.com offers.
Candy is Always Dandy
Some might shy away from giving a traditional box of chocolates, but let’s not kid ourselves. Who would really refuse chocolate? However, you might want to change your game this year. Cratejoy has a couple of fun ideas. Chocolate-Dipped Brownie Bites delivered monthly. Netties Craft Brownies combine brownies and chocolates in one delicious bite. They cut up extra fudgy brownies into bite-sized pieces and hand-dip each one in chocolate. The fun flavors include Sea Salt, Peanut Butter, S’mores, and Espresso.
Jessie’s Nutty Cups are a good option too. Each box of handcrafted peanut butter cups (and occasional almond butter cups) come in a variety of delicious flavors such as Dark Sea Salt, PBJ and Oreo.
Or you could go crazy with 10 lbs. of chocolate hearts from Candystore.com. Although these Red Milk Chocolate Hearts are the perfect candy for the year’s most romantic day, they can be enjoyed anytime and at about 300 pieces per box, they will last a long time! Or show your spicy side with 15 pounds of Red Hot Gummy Bears!
The Book of Love
While I Am Second’s new book, I Found Love has arrived in time for Valentine’s Day, it isn’t a book about romance. In fact, if you’ve seen any of their “white chair” films, you already have a good idea of the content found within its pages. Read More >>>
