Top 5 Valentine's Day Gifts For Men and Women
Valentine’s Day tends to sneak up on people. Picture it: One minute, it’s December, and you’re holiday shopping and trying to find the perfect gifts for your loved ones. You find great gifts and have a great holiday. You can relax for a little while. Then suddenly, it’s February, and you have no idea what you’re doing for Valentine’s Day and have no gift. Not this year. We’re here to make sure you’re prepared this year.
For many couples, Valentine’s Day is a day to celebrate their past and future. You can look back at everything you’ve accomplished and look forward to making new beautiful memories together because the future is bright and has so many wonderful things in store.
Valentine’s Day gifts symbolize your relationship and what you value. You want to give your loved one a gift that will fit right into their life (and wardrobe!) now but that they will also love for years to come.
These are all suggestions that could work for either person in a relationship. Everyone has different tastes, and the point of these gifts is to make your partner feel loved and appreciated. The more appreciated they feel, the better the rest of the year will go for both of you!
Valentine's Day Gifts for Girlfriend
When looking for Valentine's Day gifts for women, it’s important to remember that this is a very personal holiday that celebrates the love you share. So a gift that immortalizes those memories might be the perfect way to go. For example, you could get some of your best pictures together framed or even put together a photo album so she can look back through the years as often as she wants.
This option also covers anything to help her relax, like a weighted blanket, scented candles, or new slippers. These presents make her feel comfy, relaxed and loved.
You Can’t Go Wrong With Chocolate and Flowers
We’ll start with the classic Valentine's Day gifts for her: Chocolate and flowers! While there are specific preferences for these, they're a pretty safe bet. And it gives you a chance to show off how much you know your partner. Because let’s face it, some people have potent feelings about chocolate. Some women like dark chocolate, some like milk chocolate, and some like white chocolate. And that’s not even getting into other caramel and other additions. So make sure you know what your partner likes. A lot of Valentine’s Day chocolate comes in a variety pack so that she can get a little of everything.
And then there are flowers. Roses are, of course, a classic, but there are other options too. Tulips, sunflowers, and lilies all make fantastic gifts that will last for several days. You can also get her an orchid or another potted plant that can last for years.
Of course, you should never get just chocolate or flowers and call it a day. These gifts are just a warm-up.
The Perfect Earrings
Another classic Valentine’s Day gift for the woman in your life is a new set of earrings. Nothing sets a beautiful outfit apart like a stunning pair of earrings. The perfect earrings will make her feel like a queen when she walks into any room. And there are so many styles and stones to choose. You can choose between gold and silver, diamonds and emeralds, and studs or dangle earrings. And that’s just scratching the surface!
If the sets you see in a store or online aren’t quite what you want, you can also always talk to your jeweler about getting custom-made jewelry. That way, you know your gift will be perfect.
Another excellent option for a Valentine’s Day gift is a necklace. Like earrings, these can come in many different styles and colors. If you're unsure what kind to go with, take a look at her current collections and her style of clothing, or even just ask her what kind she likes. For Valentine’s Day, pendants in the shape of hearts or featuring her birthstone are trendy. She can wear this every day or just for special occasions.
Of course, we have one more classic jewelry option: bracelets. Some people love big flashy bracelets like bangles, and some like slim and delicate bracelets. Others prefer the classic tennis bracelet that compliments any outfit. But there is something for everyone out there. Take into account her style and taste in jewelry and how often she will want to wear it.
Something Just For him
When you’re buying Valentine's Day gifts for men, think about what will make him feel loved and appreciated. That might be a new super comfy blanket, a new shaving kit, or even some of his favorite hot sauce. This could also include a memento from somewhere you traveled together or where you first met. This holiday is all about reliving good memories and making your partner feel like their best self.
A Splash of Cologne
When searching for the perfect Valentine's Day gifts for him, cologne is always a great choice. Many people have specific scents that they like, so check out what he already has and try to find something similar. A good cologne adds to a person’s presence without overpowering the entire room. So go for something that smells great but is still subtle.
The Gift of Food
Everyone loves some good food. Whatever your partner’s favorite food is, surprise him with that as a special Valentine’s Day meal. Home-cooked or a restaurant, it’s your choice. Maybe he loves a specific restaurant, or you two love cooking together. Nothing says romance like cooking a great meal together. Receiving food can be one of the best Valentine’s Day gifts for a new boyfriend, especially if you both haven’t been together long!
Custom Cuff Links
Getting your partner custom cuff links can be an enjoyable addition to their wardrobe. These accessories come in many different styles and can be serious or silly. If you want to go for some really professional or meaningful cuff links, you can always get them custom-made. Cuff links can be engraved with whatever picture you want or even initials. The extra touch will make them great Valentine’s Day gifts.
A great watch says a lot about a person. Some people love to show off their watch collection; depending on the style, they can be worn in casual or professional settings. Take a look at what styles your partner likes and try to get them a watch that matches their personality.
