How to Win
Valentine’s Day

Best Valentine's Day gifts for men and women

Valentine’s Day is a week away and if you’re in a relationship, there’s a certain expectation that attention must be paid. Your affection cannot, of course, be measured in dollars and cents. Then again, show up empty-handed and you'll undoubtedly find yourself in the doghouse. The struggle is real—have you been together long enough for jewelry? Not long enough? What we do know is that you don't have to go nuts on silly, frilly Cupid-themed crap. Step away from the oversized teddy bear, heart-shaped jewelry or boilerplate red roses. Think outside the box and pick up something the guy or girl in your life might actually like (and use).

Give Next-Level Flowers

This is not the occasion to show up with flowers that came home with you from the grocery store. Or the cheesy arrangements getting marked up for the holiday. We like turning to UrbanStems, who has made a name for themselves with their tasteful arrangements that suit a variety of styles and budgets. And while quality roses are always a sure bet, don't be afraid to go outside the norm and select blooms that feature your partner's favorite color. You'll always get points for trying. Plus, Valet. readers can receive a complimentary Sugarfina Bento Box with any purchase using code BEMYVALET
