Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Not sure what to get your partner? Skip the chocolates and get one of these top Valentine’s Day gift ideas instead.
Sometimes it’s better to stick with something classic. Jewelry is one of the most timeless and all-time favorite Valentine’s Day gifts. You can make a statement by presenting that special someone with a sparkling bracelet or a personalized necklace.
2. DIY Date-Night Bucketlist
If you want to get creative, draw up a date-night bucket list. Write various date ideas down on pieces of paper or popsicle sticks. Put them in a container you’ve crafted. Whenever you can arrange a date night (or need one!), you may pick one at random from the date-night bucket list.
3. Custom Water-Colored Portraits
Etsy is a great place to find unique and romantic Valentine’s Day gifts. One of our favorites is a custom water-colored portrait. Select your favorite photo of the two of you and an artist will turn it into a framed work of art for your wall.
4. Photo Album
A picture is worth a thousand words. An entire photo album is worth a million. Take photos from your life together and put them together in a beautiful linen album. Together, you can travel memory lane with illustrations for years to come.
5. Hammock For Two
A great gift idea for someone who travels is something that can be transported easily. A durable and water-resistant hammock for two is the perfect portable gift that can be used by both of you when you visit the wild.
6. Gift of Experience
Maybe you’re not the type who gives tangible gifts. Instead, you might prefer to give the gift of experience. Think about an activity you’ve talked about doing together for a long time, but never got around to yet. Get a gift card for a hot air balloon ride or two tickets to a theme park.
7. A Massage
Who doesn’t love to be pampered every once in a while? A massage is a great gift for any person who works hard and could use a little TLC. For an extra lift, add a small gift bag of self-care products to go along with it.
You don’t have to spend a ton of money and do an elaborate vacation. Sometimes a small getaway can be the perfect thing you need to reconnect as a couple. Schedule a long weekend in a nice Airbnb for the two of you and enjoy a lovely little staycation.
9. Coffee Mug Warmer
Coffee enthusiasts will love this gift. A coffee warmer set will enable their cuppa joe to stay warm throughout the day. They’ll never suffer from a cold cup of coffee (or tea) again.
10. Subscription Boxes
This is a gift that’ll keep on giving, all year long! Think about something your partner loves. It might be arts and crafts, or reading books. Sign them up for a subscription box that features one of their favorite hobbies and they’ll revel in a special gift every month for a year.
11. Customized Bottle of Wine
Buy a bottle of wine you both enjoy. Then arrange to have a custom label made for the two of you. Once you finish the contents, save the bottle and repurpose it as a flower vase. It’s a sweet and sustainable gesture.
12. Bathtub Caddy
This is for the person in your life who loves to unwind with a long, hot bath. A bathtub caddy is a great way to hold your glass of wine, light a candle, and place a book to read. For an added gift, buy an example of each of these items to go in it!
13. Plan a Romantic Bar Crawl
On the surface, a bar crawl might not sound all that romantic. But that depends on where you choose to go. Create a map of the top restaurants, bars, and wineries you’ve visited throughout your relationship together. Hire a driver for the day and head out for a drink at each of these locations and you can reminisce about your memories of past experiences there.
Picking out a perfect Valentine’s Day gift doesn’t have to be as difficult as we make it. The essential strategy is to think carefully about the person and what he or she would love most.
If your partner loves something classic, stick to jewelry and flowers. If their preference would lean more toward quality time, go for the gift of an experience instead.
