Valentine’s Day is a celebration that seems to come with prescribed gifts: a dozen red roses, an expensive dinner out, chocolates and the perfect love letter inscription in a greeting card. And while we love the idea of celebrating, well, love, we think there are some amazing gift ideas outside of the traditional candy and flowers route. In fact, we think Valentine’s Day can be a day to shower your sweetie with gifts that truly reflect what she loves and what you love about her. So whether you’re in a new relationship or you’ve been with your boo for a while, Valentine’s Day is a day to celebrate everything about your beloved and your love for her.
To help get you started with a more personal approach to Valentine’s Day gifting, we’ve curated a range of gift ideas, from luxe gifts designed to spoil her, to more sentimental items, to fun and even practical options — because sometimes receiving an item we really need is the sexiest thing ever. We also like the idea of pairing one super fun gift, like a monthly subscription box or electronic gadget, with a more personal gift, like a beautiful piece of jewellery and, yes, gorgeous flowers. Gifts like a new fragrance or cute underwear are also nice ideas because they can be both sweet and sensual.
And to keep things real, we’re including a range of price points for our gifts, because we want you to find a fantastic gift and still have reserves left for romantic Valentine’s Day plans (PS: we think there’s nothing hotter than cooking a homemade Valentine’s Day meal complete with wine, candles and a luscious dessert).
