From innovative spins on classic and popular gifts for her (think chocolate tasting boxes and plants that’ll last far longer than roses) to luxury gift ideas to small keepsakes, ahead is a list of simple and thoughtful Valentine’s Day gift ideas to show her your heart is in it. And because she deserves to be wooed regardless of how long you’ve been dating or your budget, the list ahead has you covered with savvy finds at every price point and intimacy level.

Bombus Custom Personalized Heart Map Print
Tiny in size but enormous in heart, this small and simple Valentine’s Day gift idea is a special keepsake. Simply pick a frame color and an area (city, state, etc.) that’s special to you both for a customized work of art.
MasterChef Chocolate Fondue Maker Pot Set
TBH, Justin Bieber was onto something when he sang about “chillin’ by the fireplace while we’re eatin’ fondue.” (File this thought under realizations brought on by the music played at CVS.) Anyway, here’s a reviewer-loved fondue set that’s guaranteed to be a fun date night idea for Valentine’s Day this year.
Gucci Silver Trademark Heart Bracelet
Heart-shaped jewelry has come a long way since Pam Beasley implied a woman would never want to buy it herself in season 6 of The Office. Here, a silver option that just so happens to be a label nobody’s ever been upset about being gifted.
Eddies Print Shop Fun Run Shirt
Speaking of which… If you haven’t watched The Office together, are you really a couple?? Behold, her new favorite night shirt.
Blu Devil Kissing Mugs Set
The sweetness of this kissing mug and spoon set speaks for itself. It’s a little cheesy, but in a good way.
Jaylagems Rose Quartz Coaster Heart Crystal Coasters
For the woman who already has everything, there’s no such thing as too many coasters. This set just so happens to be rose quartz and heart-shaped, which makes them all the more special for Valentine’s Day. Note: The price here reflects 2 coasters (which is still an epic deal).
Artroom Expo Custom One line Couple Portrait Drawing
Now this is a thoughtful Valentine’s Day gift to really surprise her with this year: transform a photo of you two kissing into a minimalist work of art. This Etsy vendor has a two-day turnaround time and will send you your downloadable work of art then. All you have to do is print it and, to go the extra mile, find a nice frame.
Garmol Halter Eyelash Lace Teddy Bodysuit Lingerie
If you think she’d appreciate being gifted lingerie, this chic body suit looks far more expensive than its $17 price tag. A red option is available as well.
SUPPORT SMALL BUSINESS
Seyahan Gold Pearl Hoops
Had you two been able to travel somewhere far away and fabulous together in 2020, these are the earrings she would’ve wanted to hunt down as a souvenir. Handcrafted by artisans using traditional Turkish techniques, the story behind this Charleston-based brand happens to be romantic in itself. The American husband-and-wife founders met while working in Istanbul when their Turkish instructor introduced them.
Chanel Le Vernis Longwear Nail Colour in Metallic Bloom
If she loves a good manicure, treat her to this bold and glamorous shade this Valentine’s Day.
Chuao Chocolatier Assorted Mini Gourmet Chocolate Bars Gift Box
Chocolate is a classic Valentine’s Day gift idea, but this set from organic brand Chuao spices things up with flavors such as sprinkle dreams, potato chip, and sweet & salty. Reviewers love this set, too, giving it an average of 4.7 of 5 stars.

For a simple Valentine’s Day gift for her, this plant is shaped like a heart and requires the bare minimum of watering maintenance.

Sherpa on one side and plush on the other, this reviewer-loved throw blanket measures 50×60, which means it’s large enough for snuggling together during Netflix nights.
DeMellier London The Florence Bag
Real talk, have you ever seen such a sexy and silky smooth handbag? Me neither. This versatile number from Meghan Markle loved brand DeMellier London will be her go-to favorite for date nights and days when she’s feelin’ herself. (Which, hopefully, is often.)
“Bee” Mine Hooked Throw Pillow
Is this pillow cheesy? Absolutely. But it’ll melt her heart all the same.
Malin + Goetz Dark Rum Candle
If she loves a nice candle, this is one of the best Valentine’s Day gifts for her. I swear by this one from New York-based husband-and-husband run brand Malin + Goetz. With notes of leather, crisp bergamot and ripe plum, the scent is simply intoxicating.
Julen Jewel Customized Morse Code Bracelet
For $24, this customizable Valentine’s Day gift idea from Etsy (from a seller who boasts 15,000+ sales and counting) is a steal. Shoppers can choose to have any name or word spelled out in Morse code, plus they can customize the color of the beads. What makes this an especially fun gift is that the message will be known only to you and the recipient.
Aurate Infinity Heart Ring in Gold Vermeil
Reminder her that you’re wrapped around her finger. This minimalist stacking ring comes in 14k gold, silver, and rose gold as well.

When it comes to popular Valentine’s Day gifts for women, this set covers all the bases. This includes fresh roses, a cuddly teddy bear and a box of Godiva chocolates.
Parachute Home Percale Sheet Set
We spend one third of our lifetimes asleep or trying to fall asleep, so upgrading her bedding situation is a thoughtful Valentine’s Day gift for her to catch some extra shut eye. If you’re not sure where to start, Parachute’s sheets are legendary for their comfort and aesthetic appeal.
Sweaty Betty Power Workout Leggings
If she prefers leggings to pants, surprise her this Valentine’s Day with Sweaty Betty’s Power leggings. Wildly comfortable and more flattering than any other leggings I’ve personally ever worn, it’s no wonder one pair of these sold every 90 seconds last year. (Editor’s note: $100 is undoubtedly a splurge, but these last for years.)
