We’re all about celebrating love every single day, but surprising your boo or your best friend with the best Valentine’s Day gifts on February 14 is always welcome. Whether you’re looking for a unique present for your boyfriend, a romantic gift for your husband, or a special gift for the women in your life (including a Valentine’s Day gift for your daughter), our guides of the very best Valentine’s Day gifts for her and Valentine’s Day presents for him.
Lean into the traditional picks associated with Cupid’s holiday—luxe candles for your wife, beautiful blooms are a can’t miss gift for your girlfriend, and cozy pajamas for snuggle time—or go the unconventional route with unique (and noncheesy!) gifts your boyfriend or SO can enjoy year-round. We’re talking libido-boosting gummies, a subscription service that deposits some of the world’s best coffee right at their doorstep, or a truth-or-dare game that’ll spice up anyone’s night. Of course, yummy treats that go beyond the average box of chocolates are a reliable win: chocolate-covered sandwich cookies you can score at Amazon or a trunk full of Valentine’s Day candy, anyone?
The Hallmark holiday will be here before you know it, so peep our Valentine’s Day gift ideas, lest your grand gestures turn into last-minute DIY duds (though we do have plenty of ideas that ship fast from Amazon just in case you procrastinated).
Top Valentine’s Day gifts:
Classic Valentine’s Gifts for Her
We all know that person: the loved one who insists on skipping the consumer holiday but low-key expects a gesture anyway. For this valentine or galentine, may we suggest traditional faves like a towering bouquet from one of our go-to online flower delivery services, a candle so luxe they’d never splurge on it themselves, ultra-cozy slippers that look chic enough to wear out, a glamorous silk robe, or even a 500-piece puzzle inspired by vintage Valentine’s Day postcards—a cute Galentine’s Day activity (and a great gift idea for the person who has everything). These also make cute Valentine’s Day gifts for daughters.
Unique Valentine’s Gifts for Him
A cutesy Valentine’s Day card with a love note tucked inside is nice, but the best way to show your guy how much you care is with the must-haves for an intimate evening at home together. Think a comfy robe that’s like second skin, and plush slippers to keep his feet toasty, and maybe even a percussive massage gun to loosen things up. Whoever said romantic gifts couldn’t also be practical?
Best Valentine’s Day Jewelry Gifts
On the hunt for unique gifts or personalized presents? Take yourself to the jewelry department, where you’ll find everything from budget-friendly, gold-plated earrings that are perfect gift ideas for teens to trendy danglers shaped like bows to a diamond (well, cubic zirconia, but you’d never know it) tennis bracelet that’s bound to become your wife’s everyday arm candy.
Best Valentine’s Day Gifts for Wives
Determined to pinpoint a thoughtful gift for the queen of your family? Think about what makes her happy and go from there. Does she spend hours perusing Pinterest? Maybe she’d like a framed illustration. For the fashionistas out there, a sophisticated scarf or luxury perfume will make her heart go pitter-patter. And for a more meaningful present, fill in the prompts in this sweet book to remind her of why she’s your number one.
Best Valentine’s Day Gifts for Husbands
Chances are your husband doesn’t know what he wants (right?), but luckily, we do! Whether you’re shopping for a sexy surprise like a risqué version of truth or dare, a sentimental gift such as a keepsake book to remind him that you mean every word of your vows even all of these years later, an everyday treat like a houseplant, or a brilliant portable coffee grinder, these are some of the best gifts you can give him.
Best Valentine’s Day Gifts for Girlfriends
If there’s anyone you want to impress on Valentine’s Day, it’s probably your girlfriend. Surprise her with a luxe silk pillowcase or a mongrammed jewelry box to keep her baubles safe and secure. She can pop these ice globes in the fridge then press them under her eyes and across her forehead for a few moments of zen. Pair them with this guided journal, which provides quick and easy prompts she can jot down at the start or end of each day to recenter and recharge.
Best Valentine’s Day Gifts for Boyfriends
Is your best guy notoriously hard to shop for? Including luxe toiletries by Malin + Goetz, Oprah’s favorite hot sauce to delight his senses, a dope beanie, and a coffee subscription to start his day on the right foot, these are the very best gifts for boyfriends this Valentine’s Day.
Best Galentine’s Day Gifts for a Friend
Shopping for your bestie for Galentine’s Day is easy. If you like it, you know they’ll probably love it too. That’s why we recommend cherry-picking anything that would make you smile and feel all loved and pampered. Think: a heatless curling set that’s less damaging than a hot tool but will leave her with gorgeous wavy hair come morning. Or what about a claw clip that hops on the coquette aesthetic with a dainty rose fastened to it?
Best Valentine’s Day Gifts for Toddlers
If you have kids, then you know that you’re only as happy as your least happy child. (It’s true!) Make sure they’re all smiles this Valentine’s Day by spoiling them rotten with fluffy blankets, cozy jammies with hearts smattered all over them, adorable friendship bracelets they can pass out to their BFFs, and a sweet bedtime book you can snuggle up and read together.
Most Popular/Trending Gifts
Prove you’ve got your finger on the pulse with something they’ve probably seen littering their For You page. There’s Drunk Elephant skin care tweens will flip for, a candle that’s customized with their birthday, the viral Laniege lip mask our editors love, and a Glamour Beauty Award–winning lip gloss that’s also TikTok-approved.
Best Valentine’s Day Gifts on Amazon
For those of you who have the best intentions of shopping ahead of time but never actually commit until the stress-induced adrenaline kicks in, there’s one easy solution: Amazon. The mega-retailer is a reliable source for down-to-the-wire gift-giving. Whether they are instant-camera aficionados, mourning the loss of an AirPod, or foodies who will go all heart eyes over a retro red waffle maker, you can’t go wrong with these last-minute picks.
Best Valentine’s Day Sexy Gifts
Is there any better excuse than Valentine’s Day to surprise your partner with some sexy Valentine’s Day lingerie or downright buzzy entertainment (read: couples sex toys)? Add spice to date night by picking up a rose-shaped vibrator, a set of chic handcuffs, Glamour Award–winning lube, or a bullet vibe that doubles as jewelry. If you’re all set in the accessories department, tempt your giftee with a sexy playbook of exciting new poses to try.
Best Valentine’s Day Lingerie Gifts
Lingerie is one of those things that many people won’t buy themselves because it’s not exactly essential—but, damn, is it a lot of fun. Spoil your sweetheart with some intimates—like these lovely, lacy bodysuits that plunge into deep, oh-so-sexy V’s. Or go the slightly more chaste route with a silky chemise that she might just want to wear every night forward.
