When it comes to Valentine's Day gifts, you absolutely cannot buy a box of chocolates and call it a day. You gotta show that you not only care [1], but that you actually know what your special someone likes. Lucky for you, we've done all the work, so you can click and buy these thoughtful gifts (and cards [2]) with as much energy as it takes to buy something sweet. Except you'll look way better.

This venn diagram of love cross stitch [3] ($18) is a DIY [4] kit, meaning it will be all the more special once you hand make it on your own.

The great thing about this Mini Jambox [5] ($127, originally $180), besides its Bluetooth music-streaming capabilities, is that it's small enough for your boo to carry anywhere and everywhere.

Who wouldn't want to hear the phrase "I think your brain is sexy," especially when it's on a fun tank top [6] ($27) ?

Nothing says "I love you" like two robots holding hands [12] ($12).
