Hey guys, it’s that time of year again! Time to make a dinner reservation and find the perfect symbol of your love. If you’re feeling stumped on gift ideas, here are a bunch we think your partner will love.
For (Nearly) Every Partner
Each partner is unique, but it’s pretty safe to say your Valentine will probably love these romantic gifts:
Unless they’ve told you point blank they don’t want flowers, *and* you know for a fact they don’t like flowers… they’ll probably love flowers. Go beyond the standard grocery store roses with a gorgeous bouquet from your local florist. Want to surprise them at the office, or going to be spending the day apart? Send a bouquet to them with one of the new flower companies like Farmgirl Flowers or The Bouqs.
Hot tip: Ask them what kind of flowers are their favorite. Trust us, we all have our favorites, and going to the extra effort to find the ones they like best will get you a few extra brownie points.
A DipWell Starter Kit
The perfect gift for any partner who loves a little nail color, DipWell lets you get a salon-like dip mani at home. Select a kit and fill it with up to six of their favorite colors. The instructions make it easy as pie. And your Mint account will love it too - you get a year’s worth of manis for under $100!
For the One on Their Way to the Corner Office
Daily Harvest Subscription
Gift them with healthy, delicious breakfasts or lunches with a Daily Harvest subscription. Get pre-mixed smoothies and soups that just need blending / warming.
DipWell Naturale Starter Kit
We’ve selected two of our most popular neutral shades for this kit, making it the perfect office-appropriate gift that they’ll love all year.
For the Creative One
An Art Class
Start by Googling your “[your city] art class” to find in-person options, or reach out to your local community college to get more info on course offerings. Or give the gift of an online class with a provider like The Crafter’s Box.
DipWell Neon Starter Kit
For the one who likes to go bold, our Neon Starter Kit is the perfect gift. It comes with our favorite neon pink and neon pink/red powders that’ll have their nails glowing in no time.
For the Traveler
A Passport Cover
Essential for the elegant traveler, a passport case not only keeps your documents safe, but also stylish. Vera Bradley sells a colorful array of patterned cases. For the more understated version, Everlane has a travel wallet that multitasks to keep your cash, cards, and passport safe.
A Pretty New Bag
Hard-shell luggage is back in a big way. Give them a suitcase that’s as pretty as it is practical with Calpak’s Ambeur Carry-on in Rose Gold. If they’re a light-packer and you love weekend road trips, then Fawn Design’s weekender bag in vegan leather will be right up their alley.
French Tip DipWell Kit
Make them think of Paris with our French Tip Starter Kit. Comes with our French White and Sheer Pink dipping powders, plus all the liquids you need for a complete mani that’ll last up to three weeks without chipping.
For the Caregiver
Whether they’re a parent of young ones, or they’re taking care of the older generation, give them the gift of rest this Valentine’s Day.
A Day at The Spa
Stop into a local day spa or find a Massage Envy franchise and give them a gift card - be sure to look at the menu of services so you can give them enough to cover a full service.
A Day With Their Friends
Keeping good friends around requires investing time in the relationship, and free time can be scarce for women in a care-giving role. Offer to take over their duties and let them have a day out with girlfriends. It’ll be medicine for their soul.
A House-Cleaning Service
We assume you’re already splitting chores pretty evenly, but, those who are detail-oriented will often notice dirt and see a never-ending list of household chores. Give them the gift of a day off by hiring a cleaning company to do a deep clean that’ll banish the Cheerio crumbs and even get that grout that’s been looking a little gross lately. Angie’s List and HomeAdvisor can help you select a service with good reviews.
Remember, even if your budget is tight, you can show your love with gifts of time: taking on their household chores and errands for the week or setting up a romantic dinner at home (with the TV off the entire time).
