Valentine’s Day Gift Guide (For Him & Her)
It doesn’t matter if your sweetie is the serious type or seriously romantic, it’s so easy to show you care with the perfect gift for Valentine’s Day. Our Valentine’s Day gift guide gives you a mix of both traditional and non-traditional ideas to suit a wide range of styles and personalities.
Luckily Valentine’s Day is one of the easiest holidays to purchase gifts for. We’re not generalizing when we say almost all ladies love flowers, sweet treats, and spa days.
When it comes to love and romance, flowers are always at the top of the list of any Valentine’s gift guide.
The non-traditional: If you’re wanting something along the lines of flowers, but a little less traditional, consider a bamboo or bonsai plant. These potted plants brighten up any room and last for years.
Personalized pampering is another gift at the top of any Valentine’s gift guide list.
The traditional: Indulge her with professional services from Massage Envy Spas, going for a gift card, membership, one-hour facial, or other body treatment.
The non-traditional: For the girl that gets weekly massages, go another route with a sensory deprivation tank session. This relatively new wellness treatment will leave her mind clear and her body relaxed.
Home Spa Tools
Gals who adore soothing spa treatments are equally apt to love producing soothing vibes in their homes.
The traditional: Try an essential oil diffuser with an essential oil sampler gift set or look into portable neck massagers or heated slippers.
The non-traditional: We love bath bombs from LUSH.
Candy is always welcomed, particularly if you opt for gourmet chocolates, dipped strawberries, and other scrumptious treats from Shari’s Berries.
The traditional: Chocolate covered fruit, simple caramels, or an assortment of truffles.
The non-traditional: Go for cake pops or chocolate caramel pretzels.
If you’re planning a romantic evening in, purchase some adult beverages with her in mind.
The traditional: Her favorite cocktail, wine or beer is the best pick in this situation. If you’re unsure, try a rose or red blend. If cocktails are her choice, try mixing up some at-home martinis. Throw in a new stemware for an upgraded gift.
The non-traditional: If you want to try something different, we’ve got two ideas. Select a unique wine that you’ve never tried before (here’s a list) or make a complex cocktail, but make it together as a mini-project.
Have a gal that’s itching to learn to paint, weld, or speak Swahili? Look into classes that enhance whatever hobby or interest she’s looking to pursue. Then pay for her enrollment and tuition.
If you’re being a sweetheart and purchasing something for your boyfriend, you’re already two steps ahead. Here are gift ideas perfect for anyone.
Gift your music-loving man with a new MP3 player, premium headphones, or a Bluetooth speaker. Other electronics that can be a big hit can include a multi-device charging port, state-of-the-art mouse, or mini projector he can plug right into his laptop.
We have yet to meet a man that doesn’t get a kick out of a remote-controlled anything. This counts whether it’s a drone, helicopter, model car – or HDTV.
Instead of a dozen flowers for your guy, try a booze bouquet with a dozen beverage bottles artfully arranged in a classy gift box or ice bucket. If your man is top-shelf only, feel free to substitute a single bottle of his favorite whiskey or scotch.
Newsflash: men also enjoy sweet treats. Gourmet cookies can do the trick, especially if you choose Cheryl’s Cookies in a guy-friendly tin or gift box. Cheryl’s has a Valentine’s Day special going on right now– check it out.
Underwear & Socks
If you’re in an intimate relationship with a guy who has a keen sense of humor, it’s not tough to find a fun underwear or sock styles that may be calling his name. Whether you go for boxers with hearts or socks with smileys, the gift of silly undergarments promises to amuse for many nights to come. Shop Happy Socks.
