If you’re always stumped for gift ideas as Valentine’s Day approaches (you did just exhaust all your best ideas over the holidays after all), Amazon has a cool feature for you.
Its gift finder allows you to search for the perfect present by gender, age (kids like sweet treats too) and interests. Got a man who loves to bartend? A hard-to-please teen? The fashionista in your life? Amazon’s got you covered.
Here are some sweet and unique Valentine’s Day gift suggestions we pulled from Amazon’s gift finder. It’s up to you to present them with love and affection (or to send this list to the person in your life who is likely struggling with what to get YOU).
A Beef Jerky Bouquet
Nothing says “I love you” like beef jerky! This clever beef jerky “rose” bouquet comes in three different flavors: original, peppered or teriyaki.
Cactuses (don’t email us, we follow AP Style and this is their preferred pluralization of cactus!) are in, and any Valentine’s Day recipient is sure to love these cute candle versions.
These gorgeous rose quartz and gold earrings are versatile and romantic.
Good for when you can’t finish a whole bottle of bubbly in one night.
