Should you get them something safe and predictable like a box of chocolates and glitzy jewelry, opt for something fun like a handful of pre-rolls full of their favorite strains paired a stash of their go-to munchies or just keep it low key with a sentimental card, a romantic message and a stuffed animal? Decisions, decisions.
