Best Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas

Okay, so it may be a little bit of a made-up holiday, but there’s no denying that, if nothing else, February 14 is a great time to celebrate love itself. Maybe that means a special date night with a romantic partner. Maybe that means a girls’ night in with your besties. Or maybe it means a dedicated self-care moment, because self love is just as important. No matter the scenario, we still think it’s a great opportunity to gift your loved one—or yourself—something extra special. A few tips when it comes to thinking about Valentine’s Day gift ideas: While there’s definitely nothing wrong with the classic flowers and candy, think outside the (chocolate) box. Food, fashion, beauty, home—there are great options to choose from across all of the above categories. Consider your relationship with the giftee, too. There are plenty of smaller (yet still meaningful) items that are great for your BFF, as well as more splurge-worthy picks for your S.O.



A unique idea for any bath-lover, this fragrance smells exactly like the name suggests. Notes of soap (it sounds weird, but it works) blend beautifully with rose, white milk, and coconut milk, making for a clean, relaxing, and comforting end result.

“Bubble Bath really makes you feel like you’re taking a long soak in a hot bath, with castles of tiny bubbles rising up around you from all sides. It’s not just the bath, though—it’s the steamy, humid bathroom, damp tile, warm skin, and wet hair. The musk, patchouli, and coconut at the base create a super soft, plush note that feels like wrapping yourself in a warm hotel towel after a long, hot bubble bath. It’s the whole fantasy. It’s more than just smelling it—you can feel it.”—Tynan Sinks


Nothing against your beloved black leggings, but these vegan leather pants just may be your new go-to. Totally chic and an easy way to elevate any outfit, they’re still extremely soft and comfortable enough to wear on WFH days. Bonus points for the crazy array of colors.

“These pants genuinely live up to the hype. It took some trial and error to find the right fit, but as the saying goes, the best things in life are worth waiting for.

These combine two of our favorite gift giving categories: PJs and skincare. The unique fabric is infused with hydrating hyaluronic acid (and lasts for up to 40 washes), imparting said hydration into your skin while you wear them. Brilliant.

“My skin was slightly dry the next day, but there wasn’t any of the usual irritation or itchiness. Since my skin gets so dry, leggings tend to be pretty irritating to wear for too long, but these weren’t uncomfortable in any way. While they kept my skin from getting too itchy and irritated, I found they worked best with my moisturizers and oils. So I’ll definitely keep these on hand to keep away the winter dryness.”—Chinea Rodriguez


For anyone looking to cut back on coffee, this is choice. You get a hit of caffeine from pure matcha, combined with antioxidant-rich turmeric and a laundry list of other superfoods, all in a super yummy bevie.

From the luxury Japanese brand known for platinum coated face rollers that go viral on TikTok comes this chic purse-sized brush that has a patented bristle system that is gentle on hair, adding shine and gloss for on-the-go styling.

Insanely warm, with ethically-sourced insulation, and cute, too, there’s nothing not to like about this jacket.

These are hands down some of the most comfortable pajamas on the market, making them a favorite of Oprah, who gifts them to special people in her circle. This February, the brand released two new color ways— Lilac and Powder Blue, so cute for Valentine’s Day, but also a nod towards spring, not too far off in the distant future. We love the breathability of these pajamas; the bamboo-based viscose fabric is lightweight, making it ideal for hot sleepers, yet still cozy enough for a chilly winter night. The sizing goes from XXS to XXXL and they come in regular and tall sizes. Do note that they are made from 5% spandex, so there’s a little stretch to the fabric, which is also generously cut.
