Unique Valentine's Day Gifts for Him and Her [Gift Guide]

Written by

The countdown is on to February 14th. Valentine's Day is a fun holiday for couples to celebrate, but can also present a challenge as far as gift-giving goes. Flowers, candy, and V-Day cards are great but are also viewed as the default Valentine's Day gift. But what if you're looking for creative Valentine's Day gifts for him or her that are a little more on the nerdy side? Well, we put together this helpful list of some great Valentines gifts that break the mold. We've got Valentine's Day gifts for your boyfriend, girlfriend, wife, husband, friend, neighbor, and boo-thang! Thankfully, you have FUN.com to help you pick out some show-stopping, unique Valentine's Day gifts for the one you love.

Skip the silly Valentine's Day lingerie and his and hers pajamas for something you might wear for more than a night. (Getting two sets of Star Wars PJs is still sort of his and hers, right?) So maybe pop culture pajamas from your favorite TV shows and movies aren't overtly "V-Day", but they're practical and personal gifts that your partner (that can't seem to stop watching The Office) will love! However, if you're still set on his and hers pajamas for Valentine's Day, we love these fun and gender-neutral Cakeworthy pajama sets for adults.

Fancy candlelight dinners with a bottle of wine often come to mind for Valentine's Day. However, sometimes it's cozier to snuggle up at home with a little wine and a movie, or maybe some hot chocolate. (Plus, you get to skip the fancy dress code!) If a cozy night in with a little bubbly fits your lifestyle, we have a few stemless wine glasses perfect for pop culture lovers. Perhaps wine isn't your drink of choice, and that's okay! We have mugs and other glasses to use with the beverage you like.
