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 heartfelt cards are great but are also viewed as the default Valentine's Day gift. Also, they may not be the top choice for everyone. Looking for Valentine's gifts for him or her that are a little more unique?
Sure, you want to get your significant other, like, THE PERFECT present to tell them “I love you” but…what? Wasn’t it JUST Christmas? You exhausted all your gift-giving ideas back in December, and now you have to think of something even more meaningful? More sentimental? More romantic? AND with a loved one as unique and interesting as yours, cliché boxes of chocolate and a dozen roses just won’t cut it.
