We’re here to help you save time with an assortment of unique gifts that are sweeter than any candy bar.

It’s all too easy to get caught up in our daily lives and forget to remind those we love just how much we care. And while Valentine’s Day can certainly be cringe, it also encourages us to do just that. After all, gifting a heartfelt present to your loved one can be one of the more thoughtful ways to show your appreciation.

Of course, we’re aware that finding the right gift can take time, which is why we’ve done the hard work for you. The creative minds at The Verge gathered together to come up with a long list of Valentine’s Day gift ideas, all of which are more thoughtful than your generic teddy bear or box of chocolate. We’ve included a few sentimental picks — personalized keychain, anyone? — as well as gadgets and goodies centered on fitness, gaming, cooking, art, and literature. Hopefully, you’ll find something special for everybody on your list — whether it’s your partner, friend, parent, child, or someone else close to your heart.
