Who else hasn’t thought of anything to get their significant other for Valentine’s Day?

V-Day is a tough one. You don’t want to go too extravagant ’cause hey, there’s still birthdays and other holidays to think of. But a lil’ something is nice too! Well, let us help you figure out how to find that perfect cool gift for Valentine’s Day that says “I didn’t go to Rite Aid at the last minute to get you chocolates, I actually put some thought into this.” Here are 10 ideas for a nice Valentine’s Day gift.

Turntables

Through this Sunday, we’re having a sale for 20% off all turntables at all three stores. Plus, when you buy a turntable this weekend, you’ll get a $10 gift certificate for used vinyl to start that collection. Either our Red Essential II turntable or red and white Crosley Executive turntable (as pictured above) make for a thoughtful Valentine’s Day gift that will last. They’re some of the nicest and certainly most aesthetically pleasing turntables we carry — they’re statement pieces as well as a great way to listen to music.

10 music gift ideas

Got a tween or teenager’s to shop for? Looking to expand their musical horizons? Check out some of our music recommendations!

If they like Nicki Minaj or Iggy Azalea, check out Shamir’s Ratchet.

shamirLike Ms. Minaj, Shamir can sing, rap and makes dance music with a healthy dose of sass. Shamir’s androgynous style speaks to how kids are throwing out old notions of gender and stereotypes, thanks to teen idols like Miley Cyrus taking that bull by the horns. But Shamir’s lyrics are actually a lot less raunchy than either Minaj’s or Cyrus’, making him a better choice for younger teens.

 

If they like Lana Del Rey (and speak Spanish), check out Carla Morrison’s Amor Supremo.
