By

Valentine's Day is approaching whether you like it or not. And while you can never go wrong with flowers, chocolates, and lingerie, we have a couple slightly more unique ideas that are sure to get the romance started next weekend. 

Recently

Have you and your partner been together a long time? Take a walk down memory lane with this sweet photo book from Recently. The iPhone app lets you create a customized magazine of 50-100 recent photos straight from your cellphone. You can then edit, change, and rearrange the photos any way you like before they're printed on archival Mohawk paper and delivered monthly to your door. So cute. // Recently photo book: $9 per month, getrecently.com

Edible Chocolate Boxes 

Who doesn't want chocolate on Valentine's Day? Sure, it's cliche, but it's also delicious. Continue the tradition this year with a special boxed set from Nuubia. Choose from two themed boxes: The Luxury Heart Gift Box is an edible, heart-shaped box made from dark chocolate with four chocolate bonbons neslted inside and (surprise!) nine more chocolates underneath; the My Love Gift Box boasts a range of different truffles in flavors such as pistachio, coconut, cashew, coriander. Either way, don't expect your partner to share. // Prices start at $30, 1355 Market Street (Mid-Market)nuubia.com

Lingerie in a Box

Underclub's "Date Night in a Box" set will help set the mood whether you’re going out or staying in. For those hitting the town, you'll get a sexy black bodysuit (with your choice of matching brief or thong), while those cuddling on the couch will receive a slinky purple slip (with matching thong or brief) to wear for the night. // Date Night in a Box: $149 per box, underclub.com
