With Valentine's Day coming up fast, you may be thinking about what to give as gifts to the special people in your life. Whether you want to give something to a significant other, son or daughter or best friend, you have so many great gifts out there to choose from. You can't go wrong with popular gifts like candy and flowers, but you can get a little more creative, too!

If you're looking for a unique idea, check out our Valentine's Day gift guide below for five creative ideas.

1. Subscription Boxes

Whatever the person's interests are, there is a subscription box out there for them! With this fun gift, the recipient will receive a box in the mail with a few different items. You'll find subscription boxes for makeup, wine, hot sauce, candles, books and more. If you have a general idea of what someone likes but feel a little out of place picking out specific items, a subscription box is a great idea.

Subscriptions can all have different lengths, too — choose a single month or up to 12 months! This is also a great pick for someone who lives far away from you.

2. Fun Mugs

Your morning coffee or evening tea becomes so much more fun when you're sipping out of a unique mug. With so many different mugs out there, you can easily find one that will make a great gift this Valentine's Day. You can also pair the mug with some tea, hot cocoa or coffee. Even when these things are gone, the mug won't be!

3. Houseplants

Mix up the traditional flowers with a different houseplant this Valentine's. From prickly cactuses to low-maintenance succulents, you can even make plants like this a fun and festive gift for Valentine's Day. Instead of throwing away cut flowers after a few days, you can enjoy a houseplant all year long.

Whether the recipient has a green thumb or not, there's a plant out there that they'll love. Plants in the house can help reduce stress and add a great pop of color to a room.

4. An Online Class

If you know someone that loves to learn something new, an online class may be just the thing! Check out sites like Udemy or Lynda.com for thousands of online class options.
