Valentine's Day rolls around every year on February 14th, but we still want to top last year's celebration, and each one before that, every year. Whether your love language is showering with affection or indulgent gifts, we think Valentine's Day is about the unexpected. We've thought of Valentine's Day gift ideas to suit everyone from the sentimental romantic to the adventurous risktaker and everyone in between. 

Whether you are buying for a tech lover or your other half is someone whose ideal night comprises a book, bath, and afterward, a cozy bathrobe, we've got you covered. Here, every Valentine's Day gift that we can think of lives. Apart from your average chocolates and candy, that is. Oh, and roses! On that topic: putting in an order with one of the best flower delivery services is also a failsafe option this Valentine's Day. For those who dare to be different, though, our gift guide awaits.
