Let’s face it: Valentine’s Day shopping is normally a hassle. Many partners wait until the last minute to secure their presents — whether chocolates, flowers, stuffed animals, or jewelry — either because they’re too busy or they’re just dreading the shopping experience. And the age-old request of “Get me something that reminds you of me!” seems to be almost impossible to fulfill.

But this year, CLI is here to help. Not sure what to get? We’ve got you covered!
