31 Valentine's Day Gifts For Women That Are Just The Right Amount Of Sweet Without Being Cliche
Valentine's day is more than just a marketing ploy, I promise — it's a day to show who you love exactly how much you love them. And as much as you might want to present your significant other with a giant stuffed teddy bear and a heart-shaped box of chocolate, take a moment first to consider these non-cliché Valentine's Day gifts. There are many ways to say "I love you," and they don't all have to be mushy. After all, don't you want to get your love something she'll actually love? So without further ado, let's get to the goodies...
Coordinates Gold Bar Necklace
If Angelina Jolie is cool enough to have coordinates tattooed on her arm, then they’re definitely cool enough to be engraved on a personalized necklace. Consider using the coordinates from your first date, meeting place, or wedding location. So sweet.
