We all know the gift giving basics when it comes to the Valentine’s Day–cards, chocolates, and flowers which have been way overdone. So if you really want to give your partner a special surprise this year, then we have the list you’re looking for.
Art.com: Photos to Art
We all have favorite photos that remind us of great memories. Art.com’s Photos to Art service enables you to turn your photos into a work of art: you simply upload a photo, choose a size, and the preference of your style – i.e. canvas, acrylic, framing, etc. Tip: use images that are of high resolution for the highest product quality.
Bodum Bistro Electric French Press Coffee Maker
Getting a daily fix on French pressed coffee is now easier than ever; those who enjoy a full bodied coffee know exactly what the difference between your basic coffee maker and French press coffee. The Bodum Bistro Electric French Press Coffee Maker is a great option for your coffee connoisseur – the final product is guaranteed to be delicious and smooth. The coffee maker goes for ~$50 online. However, you can still enjoy French pressed coffee by getting the press alone for ~$17. We recommend the automatic coffee maker as it makes the process less manual and more convenient.
J Lingnau Arielle Earring
If you want to see a smile that stretches from ear to ear, then giving jewelry for Valentine’s Day would do the trick. If you don’t know exactly what she might like, then we recommend the J Lingnau Arielle Earring. It is made with 14-karat rose gold and features a diamond in the center. It features a good mix of modern creativity, simplicity and class. The price for a pair is ~$400.
Vosges Exotic Truffle Heart Collection

There are 6 options to choose from and prices range from $15-65. Some of the packages include exotic flavors that use ingredients like Chinese star anise, Ginger + wasabi, and Sweet Hungarian paprika

It comes with 4 Strawberries Dipped in Milk with White Swizzles, 4 Strawberries Dipped in Dark with Milk Swizzles, 4 Strawberries Dipped in White with Dark Swizzles. Shari’s Berries have a variety of other packages that may better cater to your needs; including truffles and other toping(s) – ranging from a variety of nuts to different dips.
Booty Parlor Don’t Stop Massage Candle
A relaxing massage is something everybody loves. Instead of using a basic candle to set the mood, try out the Don’t Stop Massage Candle from Booty Parlor (~$30). The best part about this candle is that once you light the wick, the candle “wax” transforms into massage oil. For convenience, we recommend that you use a ceramic spout for pouring the oil.
Polaroid Z340 Instant Digital Camera
The Polaroid Z340 serves as unique camera gift if your partner is a photography enthusiast or someone who enjoyed a traditional Polaroid camera in its glory days. The images are beautifully captured in 14 megapixels. Not only do you get the gratification of instantly getting an image, but the camera also allows you to save them on a memory card so you can print them at any time you like (without the computer of course) – also allowing you to upload them online later! The camera can be found on Amazon for $289. The downside to this camera is that everybody you show it will want to see it in use.
