19 Gifts Women ACTUALLY Want To Get This Valentine's Day

No flowers.

On Valentine's Day, seeing women (and men) walking around with a bouquet of flowers is inevitable. We get it. They're easy gifts and we're trained to think girls + flowers = happiness.

Though that may be true, this year, we dare you to dream outside of the box for your significant other. But do not fret, we won't leave you out to dry. We asked women of all ages what they'd like to get for Valentine's Day besides flowers, and below is a few of the things they said. Not so surprisingly, spending quality time with you and other gifts that don't cost money were common themes.

Here are some (perfect for the holiday) gifts for your girlfriend.
