Yep. It's that time. The V-Day shopping has begun. Here's the latest trend in gift giving.

Sure there's always chocolate and gift cards. But the trend for 2017 leans toward monthly subscriptions, and we're not talking about magazines. After all, who doesn't love receiving a package at the door?

Here are some nice ideas for Valentine's Day, including some great monthly deliveries and one particularly unusual item.

1. Monthly perfume subscription box (pick a different scent each month), like this one from Scentbird.

2. Monthly beauty sampler (5 personalized items each month), like this one from Birchbox.

3. Monthly flower delivery, including fresh farm bouquets like this one by The Bouqs.

4. Fresh food deliveries, recipes and ingredients for dinner a few times a week, like this one from Hello Fresh.

5. Monthly coffee pods in an unusual variety of flavors, made locally. Try Smart Sips.

6. For the girl that has it all, how about her face (or a group shot of her and her friends/family) on marshmallows?!! Such fun? Try Boomf!

And if none of that grabs you, try some of these suggestions:

-- A new mug or water bottle

-- Cozy, ultra soft socks, robe, PJs, slippers, or blanket

-- A gift box of herbal tea flavors or assorted coffee pods

-- A motivational or feel-good book

-- Sunglasses

-- Pocketbook, clutch, wristlet, or tote bag

-- Big, soft scarf for outside, or dressy one to wear with an outfit indoors

-- Luxurious coat

-- Necklace, bracelet, earrings, or a special ring (engagement, perhaps?)
