Ah, Valentine’s Day. Crap. What do I get bae? Well we’ve compiled a list of the top 5 best and worst gifts to receive on Valentine’s Day to help you avoid the don’ts and do the do’s!

The BEST!

Something homemade – get your creative juices flowing! Do you have a relaxed loved one that isn’t crazy about Valentine’s Day, but you want to get them something anyway? Create something! It doesn’t need to be something frilly and extravagant. Something from the heart is always a touching gift.

Bake! Who doesn’t love baked goods? There’s an exponentially long list of delicious treats you can bake your loved one! From the original chocolate brownie, to red velvet cake shaped like a heart, to mini cupcakes, you honestly can’t go wrong.

A little chocolate never hurt no one. Can’t bake to save your life? That’s what heart shaped candy is for! Whether your love is as simple as a heart shaped Reeses peanut butter cup, or as sophisticated as a Godiva chocolate heart, chocolate really can’t be a bad gift.

The Rose Debate: 1 or 12? Girls surprisingly have alluded to preferring 1 significant rose as a Valentine’s gift over a dozen of them. Reasoning? It’s obscenely expensive to buy a dozen roses, yeah we care how much you spend on us, especially if you’re in college and they’re only going to last a week. 1 single rose seems so much more romantic than a whole bunch. Am I right, or am I right?

Handwritten love letter. We’re well aware that we’re in the age of texting/posting on social media how much you love your significant other, but there’s nothing more touching than a written letter. We’re not saying mail the thing, we’re saying sit down with a notebook and a pen, and really let your loved one know what it is about them that makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

The Worst…

Those ridiculously HUGE stuffed teddy bears, elephants, lions and whatever else they make them as. Again, they’re HUGE. And in college apartments, who’s got space for that? Also, there isn’t a purpose for them after the initial hugging of it of course.

Cheesy-ness galore. We’re referring to that way below average cheesy card, extraordinarily large Hershey’s Kiss, black licorice (who actually likes it?), and a box of conversation hearts, even though we all actually like those, they’re still incredibly cheesy.

I got you something to make you smell better. That generic Britney Spears perfume that everyone and their mother owns. Same goes for that Calvin Klein cologne, skip it.

The Fifty Shades of Grey Toy Collection. Yes. It exists. No, you should definitely NOT buy it. You’re not Christian Grey, and she’s not Anastasia Steele, and this isn’t a fictional novel so just don’t.

Visa Giftcard. Nothing says “I love you and appreciate so much about you” than a generic Visa gift card for a generic amount. Not only is it impersonal, you spent an additional $4.95 activating the darn thing.
