Valentine’s Day, the annual holiday to celebrate love, is just around the corner. With it comes visions of romance ... compounded with unnecessary stress.

Multiple studies have shown that Valentine’s Day actually adds tension to relationships, due largely in part to magnified expectations that accompany the holiday. Gift giving is the perfect example of this: Choose the perfect present and you’ll sweep your date off his or her feet; deliver a dud and you’re probably heading home alone.

While most people turn to standard Valentine’s Day fair -- chocolates, flowers, a nice dinner out -- there are other options. With that in mind, we've assembled a list of cool and distinctive gift ideas, perfect for the classic rock fan in your life.

Check out the gallery below, complete with links to all items at the end of the story. And if you still decide you’d rather buy a traditional bouquet of roses than purchase a classic rock gift, at least make it interesting. Skip the red ones and buy the Freddie Mercury variety instead. Yes, the Queen singer had a species of rose named after him. Yellow in color with reddish hues, the flowers are almost as one-of-a-kind as their namesake, making them a fantastic Valentine’s gift for that special person in your life.
