Valentine's Day seems to be the holiday that sneaks up on us every year and leaves us scrambling to find the perfect gift to surprise that special person in our lives.

Even in 2022, not much has changed — and guess what? It's nearly that time again!

PopCrush wants to help you shower your loved one with affection on Feb. 14 this year.

We've rounded up the most unexpected, thoughtful and just plain interesting Valentine's Day gifts that are sure to put a smile on your darling's face. (We would also like to see less last-minute trips to Walgreens, where people frantically clamber over the last heart-shaped box of chocolates.)

In the name of love, here's our list of what people really want for Valentine's Day 2022.
