Let’s be real—we all know the traditional standby of flowers and chocolates for all romantic occasions. Don’t get me wrong, they are cliches for a reason—because they are a little bit of luxury that make a girl feel special. But if you want to go beyond the traditional and get your significant other something that they will remember for years to come, these are some items that will probably get you those brownie points.
5 Gift Ideas for Her
For the girl you haven’t been dating for very long, or the woman who loves her bath time more than you could ever understand. Bath bombs come in all shapes, all sizes, and all scents. Benefits can include moisturizing shea and coco butter. Their fizzing and aromas are often calming and add to the bath experience. This is not a gift like soap that your loved one might take the wrong way. This a luxurious item that encourages your girl to take some time for herself.
What girl doesn’t love a super soft throw blanket to cozy up under? I remember being eleven or twelve when I asked for my first throw blanket for Christmas. This is a great gift for any woman in your life. New girlfriend, daughter, friend, or wife. Every woman deserves a fresh new cozy item in her life.
This Fujimax Instax Mini is ideal for the millennial women in your life. Give them the gift of instant gratification, artistic expression, and another creative method to document the moment. This is a gift that keeps on giving, and they will love it.
Here’s the thing about purses. Every woman deserves to be unexpectedly gifted with a really nice handbag or clutch at least once in her life. This cute wristlet clutch will be perfect for nice nights out, to restaurants, plays, or even concerts. You might need some advice from the sales people or one of her best friends if the idea of this one scares you a little. Kate Spade, Coach, and Michael Kors are all great options for quality products.
For those of you looking to spend a little more money to bring your significant other’s fashion into the twenty-first century. Even if she already has a smart watch, this is a serious upgrade, and one she will be very surprised and excited about.
5 Gift Ideas for Him
This is a seriously excellent gift for your guy, and is especially good for new relationships. It won’t break the bank, doesn’t send a weird subliminal message, and is just a fun and useful gadget they will be really excited about. Make their life a little easier this Valentines Day and give them the gift of cordless charging.
For your guy who loves to be a little more sophisticated than Mr. Coffee. If your man ogles french presses in his free time or has previously discussed different methods of roasting coffee beans with you, this might be the perfect gift for him!
Does your man need to have a fan on while he sleeps, or play brown noises from Spotify to your Echo Dot all night (like mine does)? Give him the gift of restful sleep this Valentines Day with a white noise sound machine. The one linked above doesn’t break the bank, has fan sounds, white and brown noises, and boasts a sleep timer. I’d call this one a win in my book.
Have you heard of these? They. Are. So. Cool. For virtually any price range, and virtually any guy, you can give him one of the most manly gifts he has ever received in his life. From exotic meats and bacon, to Sriratcha and whiskey, you can take your pick and have it delivered in a literal crate that he will need to use a hammer and crowbar to open. Need I say more?
A classy gift for a classy guy. MVMT watches are affordable, stylish, and something your man will brag about for years to come. Make this Valentines Day one to remember by getting him this minimalist modern analog piece to step up any outfit. Bonus: it is durable and water resistant.
4 Gifts for Both of You
For the adventurers in your life, this gift will not disappoint. Great for the camping, backpacking, mountain climbing lovers, this two-person hammock will be an exciting gift for both of you that will encourage more outdoor exploring and cuddling.
Luxury is sleeping on nice sheets every night. Give yourselves the gift of comfort and a great night of sleep this Valentines Day by splurging on a new set of sheets. Can you remember the last time your bed set got a refresh? I’d say it’s probably about that time.
Monthly Wine Subscription
Let’s be real, there are all kinds of wine of the month clubs. If you and your significant other are wine aficionados, this might just be a splurge you should take this year. Here is a list by “My Subscription Addiction” for their recommended and favorite wine subscription boxes of 2018.
Treat yourself! Professional massages are not a thing that we all get regularly, even though we probably should. Give yourselves the gift of relaxation this Valentines Day and book a couples massage somewhere in town. Be prepared to be oily and relaxed, so you may not want to schedule a fancy dinner right afterwards.
More than anything this Valentines Day, we hope that you get to spend time with the ones that you love. From us to you, we hope that you feel loved and cherished this day.
