If you’ve been to the grocery store lately, you’ve seen the shelves lined with row after row of Valentine’s Day candies and chocolates—pralines, turtles, chocolate-covered cherries and more. Your Valentine may love the classic gift of a box of chocolates, but if they have a healthy streak, these gifts may land with a bit of disappointment.

Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas

Sure there are time-honored Valentine’s gift traditions, but who says you can’t break the mold? The world is full of all different kinds of people, so why not add a little variety to your presents? Consider these gifts for people of a broad range of interests this Valentine’s Day.

  • Jogging gear for the runner – Whether your loved one is a weekend runner or a marathoner, jogging or running paraphernalia makes a perfect gift. Rather than sabotaging their fitness efforts with a glut of candy or other high-fat food, opt for a new pair of running shoes or socks or a wearable device to track their running progress and heart rate.
  • Detox kit for the meat lover – If the love of your life is a true carnivore, give them a gift of health with a detox kit to counteract accumulated toxins from a meat-heavy diet. While there are hundreds of detox products available on the market today, choose a highly effective, fast-working product in the form of a one-hour detox drink made from the most potent herbal extracts. Herbal detox may cost a little bit more than other detox products on the market, but you will get your money’s worth. Unlike cheap substitutes, Pure Detox herbal drinks will do the job right the first time.
  • Chocolate for the workaholic – In your quest to give one-of-a-kind gifts, there’s still room for chocolate—especially dark chocolate with its proven health benefits. If your significant other spends long days at the office, perk up their routine with a box of dark chocolates. Dark chocolate is high in the obromine and flavonoids, both of which have been linked to reducing the risk of cardiovascular diseases.

They say that it’s the thought that counts, and your loved one will be touched to know that you have put careful consideration into their Valentine’s Day gift, calculating their hobbies and passions. Flowers and candy have their place, but a customized gift will show your loved one that you care about them on a deeply personal level.
