Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.
Though haters love to sweep it under the rug as a "Hallmark holiday" Valentine's Day is at very least a day we can set aside to show our loved ones what they mean to us, particularly since most of us are frequently too busy to even text actual words (emoijis sometimes have to suffice!). Plus, let's face it, we'll always take an excuse to exchange gifts.
That said, what do you even get your significant other/gal pal/occasional hookup buddy/pet sitter or whoever the hell you're trying to say "hey, you're rad" to? If you've already seen our unique gift suggestions and exhausted the floral shop sitch, we've mapped out the city's no-fail locales for finding cute, sexy, or even silly gifts to show someone your appreciation. Find them below (in no particular order) and get to shopping already.Read More
