It’s almost Valentine’s Day! We’re so excited to celebrate this holiday dedicated to love. But if you haven’t done your shopping yet, you might need to run out this weekend. We have some ideas for you if you need them. Remember, you don’t need an SO to celebrate this day. Share the holiday with your friends and family too.
It might sound obvious, but nothing says “I love you” like someone’s favorite candy. It doesn’t need to be fancy or in a heart-shaped box. Christy loves getting cookie dough bites from Target and Ben is a sucker for fruit snacks. Just showing you pay attention to what the other person likes goes a long way.
2. A Stuffed Animal
Stuffed animals can be such cute gifts and there are so many options. Consider being creative and getting someone their favorite animal, whether that be a tiger, a moose or a dolphin. Just make sure it’s adorable and soft.
3. An Event/Excursion
It doesn’t need to be a physical gift for someone to love it. Instead of going to a store, you can plan something to do together. It can be as simple as dinner and a movie or more extravagant like a weekend away.
4. A Cozy Blanket
It’s still winter and nothing says romantic like cuddling on the couch under a cozy blanket. Some of our favorite blankets come from Vera Bradley and they’re in cute patterns too.
5. A Care Package
These are great gifts to give to friends. Care packages can have different themes, such as a spa day or coffee lovers. It’s a fun and easy way to show someone that you care.
6. A Romantic Book
We’re both total bookworms, so we want to receive a book for every holiday. If your SO is into romance books, most bookstores have a great selection. If not, find a book on their TBR!
Give the gift of smelling great. If the person you’re shopping for loves perfume or cologne, you can’t find a better gift. Just make sure you smell what you’re buying before you purchase it.
8. A Star
Okay, this might sound completely cheesy, but you can actually buy a star and have it named after someone. For those who love to look at the stars on a clear night or those interested in astronomy or astrology, it’s the perfect gift. Imagine getting a telescope set up and finding yours.
9. Cold Weather Acessories
Like we said, it’s still winter. Sometimes the best gifts are also practical. A cute and comfortable hat, scarf and glove set is perfect for this time of year. Get it in their favorite color too!
While a very typical Valentine’s Day gift, jewelry should be bought only if you know the other person’s taste. When shopping for men, make sure to know if they actually wear jewelry. For women, a great idea is to get something with their birth stone…if they like it.
11. A Day of Relaxation
This is the perfect gift for people always on the go. Give the gift of an entire day with nothing planned. If you’re already married with kids, take the kids out for the day. If not, just ask the person what they want to do and say it’s all about them.
12. A Subscription
A subscription can be a lot of fun because the person can get something new every month! There’s also so many possibilities, such as a magazine, streaming service, beauty box, wine club, etc. There’s a subscription for everyone.
13. A Movie Night
A move night in can be just as fun as going out. Order takeout/delivery, get their favorite movie/a movie they want to see ready and get a cozy place ready to watch. Bonus points for getting their favorite drink too.
14. Letters to My Love
This is for those who are sentimental and still enjoy writing letters. You can get this gift from Amazon or Barnes & Noble. It’s a small book with different prompts and you write letters to your SO. Then, you specify which dates they should open each letter on.
