Big Agnes Dream Island ‑9C Double System Sleeping Bag
Price: $255.00
Where to buy: MEC
Romantic Gesture: This is an excellent gift for the outdoorsy girl who is a) always cold and b) can’t go to sleep without a snuggle. There will be no fighting over the covers with this sleeping bag. The top cover contains a layer of warm synthetic insulation, the bottom is non-insulated to keep it light. An integrated sleeve allows you to slide in your sleeping pads for warmth that you won't roll off of in the night. Built-in pockets keep your pillows in place too. Even if your girl isn’t into camping, the super snug sleeping bag is good to have around in case of citywide winter blackouts.

Splitterbot Headphone Sharing Robot
Price: $17.49
Where to buy: Amazon.com
Let's say you like someone but you aren't ready to take that next intimate step -- sharing your earphones. This little robot lets you share your favourite love songs from your smartphone, without also sharing earwax. It's not as romantic as John Cusack in Say Anything holding a boombox over his head, blaring "In Your Eyes" by Peter Gabriel, but you and your valentine can have your own musical moment, holding hands on the bus, listening to music together, oblivious to everyone else during the morning rush hour.
