Is it just me or do you feel like Valentine’s Day is just stupid holiday that companies use as an excuse to overcharge for flowers, chocolates and restaurant meals?
Over the years, my husband and I have stopped giving each other gifts for Valentine’s Day. We don’t even bother going out for dinner anymore because everything is over priced and prix fixe menus suck. Instead, we usually treat ourselves to a mini getaway the weekend before or after. This is usually when tax season at work gets really busy and we barely get to spend time together during the week or weekends, so its a perfect way to make up for it.
However, I’ve come to this point after 7 years of being together and running out of things to get each other. Also because I’d rather save that money and put it towards vacation somewhere else. But that’s just me. If you enjoy celebrating it, you should definitely take the time to find a present that your significant other will love.
Now, that can be hard because what can you possibly get them other than flowers and a card? Especially with Valentine’s Day being so close to Christmas, it’s hard to come up with new gift ideas.
I’ve put together a great list of “Gifts for her” and “Gifts for him” ideas that should hopefully help make your decision easier. Click on the headers to go to the link of where you can buy them! And don’t wait till last minute to order!
Gifts For Her
This is what I would call a cute, thoughtful and romantic gift. If you actually remember the day you and your significant other met or maybe the day y’all made it “facebook official”, this is something she will really appreciate. Plus it will look cute when it is framed and hung up on a wall.
This is a great gift for your lovely lady if she has a sweet tooth. And even better, they contain champagne! Sugarfina also has so many other kinds of candy flavors that make great gifts. If you are getting her these, a nice bottle of champagne + roses can never hurt!
Oh My World! Why do I not own one of these? The amount of Instagram posts I would have with this? I guess since I lived in San Diego for the last 2.5 years I really didn’t need one. But now that I’m back in Connecticut, I need one to these! Get it, just do it. She’s going to love it. Just be ready to take a lot of photos with her posing with it.
Is your significant other a mommy-to-be? The bump box is a surprise gift box that you can subscribe for and will be sent to her every trimester or however long you would like to spoil her for! This is a great way of making her feel special throughout the year. You can also do the FabFitFun subscription box which can be a good gift for any woman!
Phones have so many germs on them. Think about all the places we put our phones on and how much we constantly use it. This smartphone sanitizer is a great gift that uses UV rays to help kill the germs on your phone. I need to get one of these for myself too! Ryan, if you are reading this….ahem ahem.
I’m all about subscription boxes because I love being able to try new things. With this perfume subscription, she will get a 30-day supply of fragrance as well a free case with the first order! Cancel the subscription at any time. Very reasonable price for designer fragrances.
With this cute little makeup fridge, your woman can keep all her beauty products that need to be kept cool, separate from the smelly kitchen fridge. She’s going to love this! Throw in a couple of face masks and creams and you just may get to enjoy a spa day at home with her.
Where has this been my whole life? I want one now and your lady is going to want one too! With this shower wine glass holder, she can relax in the bath tub with some bath salts, spa music and a glass of wine for a perfect little in home relaxation. Make her a gift box with this + some bathbombs + a bottle of wine.
