11 Non-Romantic Valentine's Day Gifts (AKA What To Ask Your Parents For)
January 24, 2014
The only people who really get gifts on Valentine’s Day are girls in relationships. But just because you might be a single lady on February 14th, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t get (and give) some love to your family and friends. After all, doesn’t family love you no matter what? And how many times a week (okay, day) do you tell your besties that you couldn’t live without them? That’s what I like to call true love peeps. Isn’t that what this holiday is all about?
If you do decide to ask your parents for a gift on V-Day, make sure to keep it un-romantic. Sexy lingerie from your dad might make for a good episode of GIRLS, but it will just be super awkward in real life. Luckily, we’ve rounded up 11 gifts that you’ll definitely be happy to get–but don’t come in red, pink or lace. There’s everything from a Coordinates Collection bracelet ($205) (which you can customize with your fave location), to UGG slippers ($119.15) and a Marimekko pillow ($49). Still thoughtful, but the gifts don’t look like Hallmark’s Valentine’s Day section just threw up on them.
