Valentine's Day is upon us once again, and you might be wondering what to get your cannabis-loving lover, whether it's your first V-Day together or you've been doing this dance for decades. Sure you can put together your own “bud bouquet” in lieu of long-stemmed roses, buy them a blunt-smoking teddy bear, or give them cannabis-themed jewelry, but there are many presents for that special marijuana-loving someone that can help make this Valentine's Day more practical and memorable. To help you brainstorm, here's Civilized's Valentine's Day gift guide for the marijuana enthusiast in your love life.

5. Cannabis 4 Cause Chocolates
There are dozens, if not hundreds, of retail chocolates infused with cannabis (even Willie Nelson has a line), and many come in fancy Valentine's Day packaging this time of year for ultimate gift appeal, but Cannabis 4 Cause (C4C) offers something a littler sweeter: for every of its high-quality, fair-trade, cannabis-infused chocolate bars sold C4C pays for a dose of medical grade cannabis oil for a cancer patient in need. The 1.7-ounce bars offer 18 segments of 10mg cannabis oil doses. Your social-conscious, marijuana-loving sweetie will love receiving a few bars.

The line of WOW medicated topical massage candles from Alternative Herbal Health Services (Grapefruit Acai, OG Blood Orange, White Tea Ginger, and Lavender Jasmine) are made from 100% organic coconut oil, palm wax, essential oils, and one whole gram of high-quality cannabis concentrate. Light these for your Valentine for some strain-specific aromatherapy before treating him or her to a relaxing massage with warm oil from the candle.

If you're looking for a more sensual gift for your loved one, give him or her some Velvet Swing, a cannabis-infused personal lubricant. Velvet Swing aims to make sex more pleasurable for men and women by increasing blood flow and heightening physical sensations, which is kind of what Valentine's Day is all about.
