Valentine’s Day is a symbolic holiday to show someone special how much you care about them. The retail staples of this heart-shaped season are chocolates, roses, and greeting cards. Look, fellas, it is and high time we abandoned some of the tired traditional gifts and started giving unique presents worthy of a new decade.

You want to make a great impression this year? Here are 8 Valentine’s Day gifts for the love of your life that will actually surprise her.

1. Creative Explosion Box Photo Album

Greeting cards are so last decade, explosion boxes are the hippest gift-giving craze.

What looks like an ordinary gift box opens up to reveal multiple layers of cards and photos of your choice. This is a great sentimental gift because you’ll have to spend your time doing a little DIY scrapbooking to complete it. If you want to show your wife or girlfriend that you can go the extra mile, this is the best gift you can hope for.

Shower her with fond memories, love notes, and romantic photos. This gift made Cool Things Chicago’s list of best Valentine’s day gifts this year, read the full list for more great ideas.

2. Add Some Humor and Sass with an Unexpected Subscription Box

Want to show your wife or girlfriend that you care about her health and happiness with humor?

Surprise her with a subscription to a fun monthly box like this one from Smart Ass and Sass!

This subscription company has a unique twist, the monthly picks are made by small business and feature artists and designers. Each item is funny and sassy but with a self-care twist. Boxes include T-shirts, mugs, cards, decor and more!

3. Warm Feet, Warm Heart – Cozy Valentine’s Day Socks

I’ve recently come across the No Cold Feet Valentine’s Day Gift Box: colorful, cozy socks for couples with a silly side.

Crazy socks make people smile, and these come in a beautiful gift box with a label of your choice. The unique thing about this company is that you can customize your label! Put a funny, sappy, or romantic message on your label for bonus gift points with your loved one. Or you can choose from one of the great puns they’ve already written for you, such as, “You’re My Sole Mate.” If she loves fashion, comfort items, and puns, then this is the perfect match.

4. Custom Couples Portrait Illustration

Do you have a favorite photo of you and your partner? Send it off to an artist on Etsy and get back a one of a kind cartoon portrait. This artist can take a photo, render a charming drawing full of personality, and add a custom message or date at the bottom. This is truly a one of a kind gift that none of her friends will have.

Etsy is a great source for handmade gifts that you won’t find anywhere else. Having a commissioned portrait drawn will show that you planned ahead and put a lot of thought into your gift this year. You can have different themes and backgrounds added to make the results super unique and personal.

5. Make Her A Chocolate Fountain Fantasy Dessert

When you present her with a Chocolate Fountain, do it by arranging the ultimate dessert for her with giant strawberries, fruit slices, and cakes. Arrange your treats on a pretty heart-shaped plate and get the chocolate melted. Is there anything more romantic than coving food with chocolate together? After Valentine’s Day, you can still enjoy the fountain at parties and on date nights for years to come.

6. Thinking Of You Touch Lamps

Especially meaningful for love birds that don’t live together or who are navigating a long-distance relationship. These awesome touch lamps connect over Wifi and when one person touches their lamp the other person’s lamp lights up as well.

It’s a sweet and simple way to say “I’m thinking of you” from far away. It’s a great way to stay connected to loved ones. You can even specify what color your lamp will display and assign different colors to different people so the whole family can get in on the love-fest. Both lamps will be shipped to one address so you can wrap her gift up and present it to her over a romantic dinner. Check out Friendship Lamps Here.

Show the world that you’re a matching pair. You can find these shirts and a whole lot of other couples' coordinates on Etsy. Add personalization for an extra classy touch. Choose her favorite color tee and wear them around town with pride.

8. Lifetime Of Adventure Custom Passport Holder

A custom couple’s passport holder is a promise of fun memories to come.

You get two passport holders with names engraved on the cover. The sentiment reads, “to a lifetime of travel adventures together.” Make this gift even more special by including tickets for two to your first international travel destination.

This is the jet-setting lifestyle gift we all secretly dream of. You’ll get sentimental feelings every time you start planning your next vacation.
