The Art of Gift Giving for Valentine’s Day

While this holiday is all about love and romance, one of the best ways to show your special someone you care is with a thoughtful gift. Your significant other will feel the love and affection you feel for them when they unwrap an item you got just for them. It’s also great excuse to spoil your sweetie with the types of treats and shiny items they wouldn’t normally get for themselves. The spirit of the holiday is all about being a little indulgent and generous, so go for it with a gift they will love.

While we are sure your special someone will love whatever you chose for them, you will want to consider a few things when making your gifting plans. If you are giving them something to wear, whether it is clothes or jewelry, make sure you have their size correct, no one wants to have to return a valentine’s day gift! If you are giving them something edible - the best gift of all! - consider their dietary restrictions and preferences. Are they gluten free? Do they love chocolate? We’ve got some great sweet treats for every type of Valentine!

Unique Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas

Now that you’ve thought about the type of item you might want to give and the details that you should factor into your choice, here are a few of our favorite Valentine’s Day gift ideas.

Something sentimental.

Valentine’s Day is a chance to celebrate your relationship, so a thoughtful gift that commemorates a special memory or reflects on a time you shared will make your significant other feel the love. Maybe frame a printed photograph from your favorite vacation or get a wall art souvenir from a place you went together.

Get out of town.

Maybe your Valentine is more of an experiences over objects type of person, and would like nothing more than quality time with you. Adventure is always a great gift, so treat your loved one to a weekend away, like a road trip, cabin escape, beach vacation or even a fancy staycation. This holiday is a great time for a change of scenery.

Go luxury.

This holiday is a great time to treat your boo to something extra fancy. Spoil them a little by getting them a nice version of an item they enjoy. If they like candles, splurge on a designer version. Maybe they’re into wine. Surprise them with a sommelier selection. Give them the type of treat they wouldn’t get themself!

Something sweet.

As cheesy as it can be, a box of something chocolatey is tradition for a reason! Dessert is the way to every Valentine’s heart, so order them a delivery of something special this year. A box of Red Velvet Cheesecake Truffles will be the perfect gift to knock their socks off. A dozen Chocolate Covered Strawberry Snaps is a Valentine’s Day gift they’ll be sure to brag about. Maybe they will even share with you!


No matter what you choose to get your loved one for Valentine’s Day this year, make sure you remember what it is that makes them special. The best gift should make your sweetie feel seen and understood, so take the time to get something that represents them.
