Sweet symbolism works its wonders on another wearable gift for fashionable friends. Of course red is the top tint for Valentine’s Day, but it also happens to be one of the hottest color trends, too. Infinity-style scarves are also easy-wearing and suggest the unbroken circle of friendship.
Friends: Heart waffle makers

Want to be invited for brunch? Gift your favorite foodie one of these clever, and affordable (many sell for under $40), little appliances and you’ll be noshing on freshly made waffles to your heart’s content. (Know a couple planning to get married? These make awesome wedding gifts, too.)
Co-workers: Heart cookie bouquets

Workplace Valentine’s Day celebrations should be light and breezy, so bringing a treat that almost everyone can eat is a fun way to mark the day. “Bouquets” of scrumptious heart-shaped cookies will leave you with a real sweet rep in the office. (But be warned – these won’t last nearly as long as a bunch of flowers.)
Co-workers: Heart paperweights

When you want to give a boss or colleague something special for the day, skew office-useful with a paperweight. Of course, we’re not talking Baccarat here, but simple crystal varieties are affordable and many can be easily engraved with the recipient’s name or your company’s logo.
Co-workers: Conversation hearts

Go ahead – give them something to talk about at the office. Pastel candy hearts stamped with silly and sentimental sayings are a Valentine’s Day mainstay, and your workmates will appreciate the retro charm of these munchies. Set out a nice big bowl on your desk and watch the words fly.
Teens: Giant gummy bears

Teen girls are pretty easy to shop for on Valentine’s Day. Not so much teen boys. Let’s get them taken care of right now. Two words – giant candy. We’re talking a five-pound gummy bear, the equivalent of 1,400 normal-sized gummy bears. (If that’s just way too much sugar in one package, one-pound versions are also on offer.)
Teens: Headphone splitters
Bing Shopping | Headphone splitters
Here’s a suitably couples-oriented Valentine’s Day gift for teens that won’t trigger their sensitive “ew” response. Like a bicycle built for two for the tech age, headphone splitters make sharing music simple, and -- in the case of the Tunes For Two splitter -- cleverly cute.
Teens: Heart cellphone charms
