Unique Gift Ideas for Valentine's Day

I am just going to put it out there.... I am not the hugest fan of Valentines day!
I think it is a made up holiday for the retailers to make a quick buck on poor guys trying to impress/makeup/be romantic because society tells them to.  One day to tell the person you love how much you love them?  What about the rest of the 364 days of the year... he is off the hook?  I would much rather the hubs bring my flowers home from the grocery store on a random Thursday in May for no reason at all.

Now with that being said... I actually met my husband on Valentines day {yes insert the irony!} I felt this way before I met him... and being with him for 10 years has not changed my thoughts of this date.  But every year I can't help but take a peak at what fun gifts ideas may be out there.
For this I head to Uncommongoods.com to see what is new in fun and unique gifts.

For Her... 

Valentines Day Gifts Her

For Him...

Valentines Day Gifts Him

Quite honestly I would be happy with any gift from either list {well besides the man grooming kit!}.
If none of these leave you feeling the love then check out HERE, HERE, and HERE for some other great suggestions.

What are your thought on the made up day of love?  
Love it or would rather get flowers and candies on a random Thursday in May for no reason?

I have not been compensated for this post.  All selections and opinions are solely mine.

I'm not a big fan either. I can't remember the last time we exchanged gifts. We are lucky to have a night out. :)

We don't exchange gifts but if we did I'd ask for #9 - love it!
