Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and you’re no doubt thinking about how to celebrate with the ~love~ in your life (or get the attention of the ~potential love~ of your life, if you’re single and crushing). But remember, V-Day is a day to celebrate all kinds of love. With that in mind, here are seven great Valentine’s gifts for special people other than that “special someone.”

1. Your best friend
Make plans with your bestie now for February 13th, aka Galentine’s Day. And when you’re getting your brunch (or brunch food for dinner — Galentine’s Day is on a school day this year, after all) on, consider gifting her with this amazing (and delicious-looking) twist on the classic friendship necklace. Yep, pizza friendship. Yummm.

More than one best friend? No problem. The pieces come together to form a whole pizza, aka the only thing in the universe as powerful as friendship. And at $5 each on Etsy, the price is right too.
2. Your sibling
Assuming your sibling has a sense of humor (and come on, what siblings don’t have a sense of humor about their relationship?), he or she will love a these mugs that let them know where they really stand. JK, you know they’re actually the best, and they know it too—that’s why the mugs are so hilarious.
3. Your mom
You know your mom isn’t a regular mom. She’s a cool mom. Bonus point if she’ll get the Mean Girls reference. These cool mom water bottles are $16.99 on Etsy.
4. Your dad
If your dad is a Star Wars fan, he has that in common with probably 99 percent of all dads and will also love this pun-tastic Yoda mug. Cost on Etsy? $13. Value of the dad jokes it will inspire? Priceless.
5. Your teacher
Is it a little cheesy to give your teacher a Valentine’s Day gift? Yes. Duh. But will it earn you some much-needed brownie points that are sure to be remembered next time you bug them to stay later than office hours and re-explain that super tough calculous chapter for the millionth time? It just might. And most importantly, will it let someone who’s working to make you a smarter, most prepared human know that you notice them? Heck yeah.
This folding pattern is crazy cheap ($3.22) and all you need is an old book and a free afternoon to create something handmade and perfect for classroom decor.
6. Your frenemy
You know that friend who you had a falling out with? The one you’re still kind of, technically friends with because you’re in the same friend group, but who things have been ~weird~ with for a while now? Valentine’s Day is your chance to make things right, with an adorable, pun-y gift to make amends. This “Let’s Make Up” makeup bag is $14.50.
Remember to show yourself some love on V-Day too. These Treat Yo Self pencils will remind you to do something nice for YOU every day and at $8, they won’t even give you shopping guilt.
