Lovebox Color & Photo Love Note Messenger

Sending love to someone far away this year? Once you connect this unique device to an app on your phone, you can send a photo, message, animation or drawing right to their nightstand. They'll know they have a special message waiting for them once the heart on the front of the box starts to turn — you'll know they received it when they spin the heart back. It's more fun than a text message and is definitely quicker than a card, which makes it a sweet pick for kids, grandparents and long-distance couples alike.

Lovebox Black & White Love Note Messenger

The Lovebox also comes in a black-and-white-style device. It operates in the same way as the color and photo version but can only send messages, drawings and animation sans color.

"I Wrote a Book About You," by M.H. Clark

If you're short on time but want a truly personalized gift, not much beats out writing a book for your loved one. Sixty-four pages full of meaningful prompts that you can fill out, this book can be read whenever they need a mood boost.

Tommy John Men's Second Skin Lounge Jogger Pants

While these lounge pants may be a bit of a splurge, they won't go under-appreciated if your giftee has been wearing the same pajamas for the last few years. The name implies that they're so comfortable you might forget you're even wearing them, and one verified reviewer who gave the bottoms a five-star rating wrote that they "fit beautifully" and feel good on the skin.

Tommy John Women's Lounge Jogger Pants

Ladies don't have to miss out — Tommy John also makes a similar style for women that are made from the same soft and stretchy fabric.

Thoughtfully Gifts The Good Hurt Fuego: A Hot Sauce Gift Set

Hot sauce is a classic gift for a reason. If their meal isn't complete without hot sauce sprinkled over it, this set can help expand their palate. It includes seven different flavors that are inspired by peppers from around the world, including Garlic Herb, Smoky Bourbon, Garlic Pepper, Chipotle Pepper, Cayenne Pepper, Whiskey Habanero and Ghost Pepper. If the dynamite-inspired packaging is any indicator of the spice levels, gift carefully.

Ullo Wine Purifier

An at-home date night isn't complete without a bottle of wine. While a bottle isn't included with this gadget, the brand says it will enhance the drinking experience from the moment you start pouring. The purifier sits atop your glass or decanter and filters out artificial sulfite preservatives, according to the brand (which some believe are responsible for the morning-after headache or stuffy nose). Removing the preservatives shouldn't affect the quality of the wine — it's actually supposed to help heighten the natural flavors.

Brentwood Cake Pop Maker

If you're celebrating with kids or want to gift an experience this year, why not bake? This cake pop maker can whip up 12 cake pops in just about five minutes, so you can pop them on a stick, decorate them and then enjoy. For anyone with a sweet tooth, this might just beat chocolate.
