Roses and chocolates for the infamous V-Day are without a doubt classics. However, they aren’t exactly the most original gift ideas, nor do they suit everyone. Whether you’re looking for a romantic gift for your significant other or want to surprise your gal pals for Galentine’s Day, there is a gift for every situation.

We put together 15 different gift ideas that we think everyone will absolutely love.

1. Wine

Speaking of classics, here’s one that never goes out of style. Picking up a good bottle of wine is guaranteed to make your girl or guy happy. Whether you’re choosing between a good Cabernet or something more sparkling like Prosecco, wine is the best addition to your romantic evening. 

2. Massages

Nothing screams romance like a great massage. Pamper your loved one with a relaxing massage at a local spa. Spas like Massage Envy have locations all over the country. You can also set up to have a massage therapist visit your home, saving your significant other the trip. Whatever option you go with, massages are a great Valentine’s Day gift.

3. Spa Day
