Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas

I tend to keep Valentine’s Day celebrations simple, but since gift giving is my love language, I can rarely resist the opportunity to pick up a few special little things for Thomas, my mom, and my closest girlfriends. Too often, I get totally caught up in my daily routines before realizing that Thomas and I have gone a month without a proper date night, I haven’t texted any of my friends in days, or it’s been too long since I FaceTimed my siblings. Valentine’s Day provides the perfect reminder and opportunity to let the people in our lives know how much we appreciate them, whether that’s with gifts, quality time together, or a quick text to say “thinking about you.” Sometimes, all I do for Valentine’s Day is pick up a pretty stationery set, jot down a few things I love about each person, and then pop my “valentines” into the mailbox. I believe that thoughtfulness trumps dollars spent every single time, and especially since Valentine’s Day falls right after the holidays when gift-shopping creativity (and bank accounts) may feel a little low, many of the ideas below are under $50.

Since lots of men tend to value experience gifts over material gifts (I know Thomas certainly does), these items are mainly for the women in your life, so browse through them with moms, sisters, and best friends in mind. And if one of these items puts a smile on your face, I’m all in favor of treating yourself to a little something delightful. You are more than worth it! If you have another creative gift idea or a sweet way you love to celebrate Valentine’s Day, let me know below so we can be inspired by each other.

Bow Earrings

If you’re head over heels for the look of my favorite Oscar de la Renta bow earrings (last seen here) and have been on the lookout for a budget-friendly option, this BaubleBar version is for you. I love that they make a feminine statement that would fit right into a dressed up Valentine’s Day look, without being as literal as hearts.

Lotus Vase

I love receiving flowers for Valentine’s Day (or any day really), and these lotus-shaped vases with just a hint of soft blush offer a beautiful way to display them.

Eau De Parfum

A romantic fragrance can bring back the fondest of memories and special moments for me, which makes it a favorite gift to both share and receive.

Hand Crafted Paper Flowers

We have a beautiful large pink paper peony hanging on the wall in our home. These mini versions are a simple way to add a pretty touch to any room.

Lip Mask

Give the gift of luscious lips with these easy-to-use lip masks.

Pinkalicious Gift Box

This gift box is filled with treats ranging from pink champagne truffles to pink cotton candy and pink white chocolate.

Floral Lace Bralette

This sheer pink lace bra looks as comfortable as it is beautiful.

Heart Pajama Set

I am a lover of pajama sets and this cozy cotton pair says ‘be mine’ with a darling heart print pattern.

Gold Heart Necklace

A gold heart necklace makes the sweetest gift for any woman in your life.

Blush Woven Bag

I am a big fan of these woven bucket bags (as seen here and in several Daily Looks, c/o) and this one in blush is simply irresistible.

Letterpress Stationary

Sweet, simple, and charming, this letterpress heart stationery is sure to inspire love notes year-round.

Tuberrose Candle

Set the mood with this beautiful pink candle, filled with a rich, sensuous sandalwood and vanilla frangrance.

Heart Earrings

The heart shaped earrings by Rebecca de Ravenel make the perfect statement for Valentine’s Day and beyond.

Striped Napkins

These linen blend napkins in a soft pink stripe can be monogrammed for a personal touch.

Mrs. Box

I love the idea of having this pretty little velvet box to keep your engagement (or an important ring) stored in when not wearing it.

Fresh Ranunculus

Flowers are always one of my favorite gifts to receive, they bring so much joy and life- this rainbow bouquet of ranunculus will be sure to put a smile on your loved one’s face.
