Stumped on what to get your significant other for Valentine's Day? Well, if they are poker players (or you are) here are some ideas on what you can get.
Chocolate Playing Cards. I've seen these at various locations online, and chances are good your local Chocolatier will have something similar so check with them.
Also popular are chocolates in the shape of the four suits - diamonds, hearts, clubs and spades.

Chocolate Poker Chips. Rich milk chocolate wrapped in foil, disguised as poker chips. There is probably no better way to instigate an impromptu game of poker with someone who doesn't normally play than by offering the reward of chocolate when they win.
Same as above, these can be found all over so take a look. (shown: Candy Warehouse)
Hallmark has come up with a 'King of Poker' gift set which includes a deck of WPT Playing Cards, 4 chocolate-mint 'poker chips', and a bag of peanuts with sesame snack crackers all enclosed in a poker-themed tin.
This gift includes a full-sized Hallmark greeting card, with your personal message.
If she is the type that melts at the sight of stuffed animals, she might like something like the Las Vegas Bear with Chocolate Medallion.
This one has a roulette-wheel wrapped chocolate, but you could even make something similar on your own.

Arrange for a dinner and movie night in - order some food from a local restaurant, and rent some poker-related movies like Rounders.
Ok, maybe it isn't the most romantic idea, but well...maybe you just aren't the most romantic person.
Sometimes it really is the thought that counts.
And if all else fails -
Simply get her some flowers. Roses are definitely recommended - red, long stem. Yes, they are the most expensive, but anything else screams how cheap you are. (Even though it just may be true.)
Suck it up. You can always play poker tomorrow night.
