25 fun gift ideas for your Valentine

Holidays have looked a lot different than normal over the past year. The pandemic has made it difficult to celebrate things like Christmas, Thanksgiving or birthdays due to social distancing.

This Valentine’s Day won’t be any different. The pandemic is still an issue across the nation, and we’re all still trying to stay at home as much as possible to avoid spreading COVID-19. Not sure why the pandemic has made months feel like years? Here’s why.

But while your celebration may not include a fancy night out and drinks at a crowded bar this year, your presents don’t have to be toned down. There are tons of cool gifts you can give your loved ones. From a password-keeping logbook to digital microscopes, here are 25 fun gift ideas for your Valentine.

1. Book to keep track of passwords

Have a loved one who is slightly scatterbrained? You can help them keep track of all of their account passwords with this Boxclever Press Password Book with Alphabetical tabs. It comes with everything you need to store passwords, login details and account information in one place. There's even a spot to write password hints instead of the password itself for extra security.

Promising review: "This is exactly what I wanted to replace a very small notebook I used for years. The size is perfect. Note: use a pencil because it is a good idea to change passwords often!"

2. Beef Jerky Sampler Kit

If your partner loves meat, this Beef Jerky Valentine Gifts For Men is the perfect gift. It comes with a ton of different meat jerky products, including jerky sticks, pork "chomps," epic pork rinds, beef bars and even ostrich jerky. You'll get 12 individually wrapped beef jerky snack packs in total with this box, so along with being a great gift, it's a good deal for the price, too.

Promising review: "I was looking for an Easter gift for my boyfriend and I'm so glad I chose this! There was a great variety of products and every item was delicious. ... My boyfriend loved the gift and it was perfect for snacking since he's been working from home."

3. Yoda one for me shirt

Promising review: "I ordered two of these t-shirts for Valentine's Day. I order pink and red. They fit my husband and I very well and were a soft, comfortable material."

4. Three row lasagna pan

Amateur and professional chefs alike will go nuts over this Chicago Metallic Professional Lasagna Trio Pan.

Promising review: "I bought this for my husband's nightstand and he absolutely loves it! It came wrapped in brown paper with a raffia cord tied around it so it's VERY giftable. The pieces went right together and are nice and sturdy. The wood is as pictured and has a nice finish."

6. Digital microscope for collectors, kids and scientists

7. LED light for her purse

Promising review: "It is a great little bag to just throw on and go!! It can hold my cell phone, my credit cards plus the little extras like lipstick and keys. This bag is great for errands and running around to my kids sporting events."

11. Levitating globe

Give your loved one the world this Valentine's Day. This MOKOQI Magnetic Levitating Globe with LED Light is a really cool conversation piece.

Promising review: "I've owned shavers costing several times as much - and they didn't perform any better than this one. All the snazzy features on more expensive units are just noise.
