Whether you splurge on a handbag for your one-and-only, or treat the whole crew to something sweet, there’s just something delightful about Valentine’s Day gifts. The whole affair is frivolous, fun — and gives us yet another chance to celebrate those we love.
We’re shopping our own guide this year for clever items we’ve just got to have ourselves. Let’s start with some classics…
The 15 Best Valentine’s Day Gifts For You + Your Galentines
romance for him, her – or just you | Aussie brand Maison Essentiele makes sustainable silk pieces we love. This pink and red ’90’s It Girl’ set just screams ‘be mine’. Pair with a bottle of Not Your Baby from Chriselle Lim’s PHLUR to complete the vibe with notes of playful mimosa, cardamom and vanilla milk.
The thoughtful galentine | We think you’ll agree: every Galentine you’ve got needs an ILEX STUDIO Avocado Vase this year. Simply set a clean avocado seed in the vase’s mouth and watch the beauty unfold. Pair this clever vase with Robyn Conley Downs’ The Feel Good Effect — a thoughtful, fun and illuminating guide to emotional health through ‘small shifts that create big change’.
Cheers to wellness | Swipe up bottles of Katy Perry’s non-alcoholic De Soi Champignon Dreams for the loves in your life, then pop bottles over a set of these stunning, structural coupes from the Ramona Wine Glass collection.
For the girl on the go | We’re obsessed with Ree Projects lately and their sustainably made Wyn Mini Leather Shoulder Bag would make any Valentine swoon. Tuck one bottle of Alexis Smart flower remedies inside for a truly modern gift that will thrill. Every tincture supports a different emotional state, so shop mindfully. Have a friend who just went through a breakup? Try the WHOLE HEARTED Flower Tincture — it may be just what’s needed.
scents are the thing | Nothing sets the tone quite like a good scent. Nette’s clean candles are some of our favorites lately, poured in chic ceramics with strong, sophisticated scents like Pearl Dust and Chai Milk. For the body, nothing could be more captivating than a spritz of Trudon Mortel Noir for a mystical and spicy scent you’ll love to linger in.
Cozy for two | Dinner reservations are great, but, what’s more romantic than two bowls and two souls over ramen? Create a thoughtful gift for two (or the whole family!) around our latest de-junked junk food obsession, immi Ramen. Pick up two new ceramic noodle bowls like these from World Market, two pairs of fresh chopsticks, and immi’s high-protein, junk-free ramens for a sweet night to remember.
V-Day Classics | What would a Valentine’s Day gift guide be without these classics? goop’s latest in their collection of vibrators is getting good buzz. The art object-like sexual health tool is phthalate, latex and BPA-free, and easily giftable on it’s own, but pair with a box of chocolates and you’ve got a major home run. Our favorite flavors lately come from Hu Chocolate — and this box of organic, fair trade bars is filled with their very best from Hazelnut Butter to Vanilla Crunch.
Sweet Accessories | Bandolier’s Willa Heart Case comes in red or silver pebbled leather and will carry a few cards and your phone around in style. A cute gift for those who really embrace the February vibe. Rothy’s makes accessories from ocean-bound marine plastic. We love the mission, and the pieces couldn’t be cuter. Pick up one of their adorable pouches in pink and red gingham and fill with sweet treats or their favorite lip products.
A Spa night in | Put together a good collection of skincare for a spa and movie night in with your galentines. Pair the face masks of your choice with MAKE Beauty’s Pink Matter Balm lip mask and pick up a few pairs of Patchology’s Rose Toes Renewing Foot Mask to wear while piled on the couch. Like a sheet mask for your feet, these skin-softening booties are our latest beauty addiction. They also come in a style made for hands, and both are great to prep for date nights too!
