So you’re struggling on what to get your partner or date for Valentine’s Day.
Me too sis. I feel like Valentine’s Day gifts can be a struggle because you have to take into account the nature and duration of the relationship. I would love to get your opinion on my thought that people often forget Valentine’s Day as well so it becomes a very last-minute organised occasion. Women in relationships please confirm or deny this haha.
My date and I decided to exchange Christmas gifts last year which didn’t go swimmingly for me. I’m sorry if you ever read this but you know haha. He got me a diffuser for Christmas even though I lack a sense of smell. In my post reviewing Maison Margiela perfumes, I mention I don’t have a good smell so I’ve never felt the need to buy high-end perfumes or candles. I still appreciated his gift nonetheless even though it is unopened and stored away (lol) but I guess the point I’m making is if you’re in the early stages of your relationship it’s easier to get away with a ‘generic’ gift because you don’t know each other very well.
In this post, I’ll try my best to suggest gift ideas for Valentine’s Day for both him and her.

Gifts for Him
Some suggestions I think are fantastic are shaving or grooming kits. Cologne and wallets are really standard but high-end products that will make your partner feel special.
Look to see if your partner has any particular hobbies. If your partner is a big Star Wars fan, consider getting a cute Star Wars gift (baby Yoda is so cure). If your partner likes a particular band or artists, you could get merch or a vinyl wall print.
If your partner loves his beers or whiskey, consider getting a beer subscription or some nice homewares. I found a grill kit and air fryer which I think would be so amazing! Bonus – you can also enjoy the food as well.
Gifts for Her
Makeup, skincare and perfumes are some great high-end safe Valentine’s Day gift ideas for your partner. Better yet a personalised perfume will be a beautiful gift. You can even customise the scent from orange and cinnamon to lavender and white tea.
Getting some really high-end good quality jewellery would also be a great idea if she wears jewellery. She’ll wear it all the time which is what you want in a gift. Better yet if you get her some personalised jewellery such as a necklace with her name on it.
Health and wellness are also really popular options especially due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Quartz rollers (gua sha), silk pillows, mindfulness and affirmation cards, positive motivating wall prints, etc.
If you’re been together for a while, a cute wall print of the two of you would be so cute. I really like the minimalist and abstract style of art so this would also be a cute Valentine’s Day couple gift.
If both are you are really into travelling, this world map is perfect for you. You scratch off the parts of the world you’ve been to and it makes for pretty wall decor.
On the theme of scratch off (it’s fun – oooh does anyone remember scratch and sniff stickers in primary school), this movie date night poster is perfect! I actually need this. One – I’m so indecisive that it takes us forever to even decide a movie. Two – I’ve never really been into films so I am actively trying to watch more.
Better yet – you can get a date night card where you scratch off a circle and it reveals a date night activity such as board game night or spa night (you also can customise the activities so you can spice up date nights with your partner). A naughtier option would be a scratch off card of sex positions.
Lastly, a cute Valentine’s Day card with a funny pun is always appreciated (hopefully). I love this cute ‘I love hanging with you’ card with sloths on it.
I hope this post has been really helpful. I’ve really enjoyed putting this together and it’s given me a lot of inspo for Valentine’s Day gifts.
