For those times when you’ve already exhausted the coupon trick for Christmas, their birthday and last Valentine’s Day.

3. A Framed Picture
If you’re really in a bind, find a frame you already own, take the original picture out and run by any one-hour photo service. Extra brownie points if it’s wrapped nicely.
4. Shopping Trip
Take the trouble out of having to decide what to buy for your S.O. and have them decide for themselves.
5. Baked goods
6. Hand written letter
Break the Hallmark tradition and put your high school English classes to use.
7. Spotify/Pandora membership
Because iTunes gift cards are over done.
8. A bottle of (good) wine + chocolate
None of that $7 wine product they sell at 7/11.
9. Donation to a Charity
While Valentine’s Day might be a day to focus on your other half, taking the time to research a cause your S.O. is passionate about might mean a lot more to them than any material item.
That stray cat you always see around your apartment? Lure it in with some cat food, stick a bow on it and boom. Instant gift.
