Saffron Marigold - Updated: January 23, 2023

You want to impress her this Valentine’s Day with extraordinary gifts and gestures she won’t forget. It can be hard filtering through the basic and often low-quality gifts for this holiday. Lucky for you, we’ve put together a list of nine Valentine’s gifts for her she’ll truly love. When in doubt, a gift card to one of her favorite stores will always be appreciated.

1. Valentine’s gifts for the home chef

The dear food enthusiast in your life may already have the Lenox and Wedgwood collections they need. Something deceptively simple like an apron will complete their kitchen essentials. How about a block printed cotton apron in a stunning design like this floral number featuring out Tropical Garden prints?

2. Curated Valentine’s gift box for the Earth lover

An all-natural gift box with eco-friendly items is a fine choice for someone who enjoys luxury treats while being kind to the Earth. For example, this self care kit is zero waste, certified vegan, and plastic-free.

Throw in this set of luxury spa soaps to complete your self care gift box. Triple-milled soaps enriched with botanical butters and extracts inspired by global destinations like Paris, Tahiti, and Morocco.

3. A unique Valentine’s Day gift for her she’ll use every day

Does she like to sit by the window as she dozes off watching TV in the evenings? Or does she start her day by enjoying a morning cup of coffee out on the porch? Gift her this billowy cotton quilt with handcrafted details to keep her company even when you’re not there. A one-of-a-kind gift perfect for moms, sisters, and close friends.

4. Gifts for the partner who loves big romantic gestures

If she’s someone who is generous with love and presents, but rarely treats herself to luxury items, give her an exceptional experience gift. Set up a mini spa day at home with everything she’ll need for her mini getaway—a luxury fabric shower curtain, moisturizing soaps, a scent diffuser, and deluxe spa products for head-to-toe pampering!

5. Small, but show-stopping gifts

When it comes to thoughtful gifts, a high-quality gift or two will be more appreciated than trinkets that belong in a Christmas stocking.

6. Valentine’s gift for the nature lover

Similar to a necklace with a birthstone pendant, a glass birth month flower is a personalized gift choice she’ll cherish. A handcrafted gift like this will delight any nature lover in your life on Valentine’s Day.

7. A gift that’ll bring a tear to her eye

Some people may prefer to stick to digital, but there’s nothing quite like a photo album filled with reminders of your years together. Memories made tangible. Whether it’s a gift for mom, wife, or best friend, a personalized photo album will warm her heart.

8. A room of her own

If you’re looking to do something memorable and different this year for your partner on Valentine’s Day, how about making over the bedroom? New bedding and a fresh set of curtains that speak to your partner’s design tastes will leave them speechless! Don’t forget to spruce up in other ways, too—a new coat of paint, a photograph hung on the wall, a cozy rug.

9. Valentine’s gift for the traveler

The ultimate travel-friendly gift is a reusable water bottle. Preferably one that accommodates both hot and cold drinks! One with a gorgeous print like this foliage-covered bottle will remind her of you whenever she’s out and about.
