Valentine’s Day is a hard holiday to shop for. While roses and chocolate are always nice, they can end up feeling cliché this time of year. And trust me, no matter how pretty the wrapping paper, your boyfriend will know if you picked out his present at your corner drugstore the night before… So with Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I thought it would be helpful to share a few gift ideas that I love.
Whether you’re single or spoken for, here are some gift options for everyone in your life, from your bestie to your beau…
For your true love…
1. Levtex I Love Us Pillow, $29
Talk about sweet dreams. I love the chic, understated design of this throw pillow.
2. Take Away Maps Love Story Maps, $6
Take Away Maps creates custom maps documenting your love story. It’s such a sweet and thoughtful gift that you’ll have forever.
3. Komono Magnus – Woodsman Round Dial Strap Watch, $100
Your beau will wear this hip watch year-round, but the red is especially appropriate for a Valentine’s Day gift.
For your bestie…
4. The Little Market V-Day Bears (girl and boy), $26
These V-Day bears are just too cute and go toward a good cause. They are hand-knit by female artisans in Peru, and all proceeds go to V-Day, a global campaign to end violence against women.
5. LC Lauren Conrad XO Bangle, $14
This bracelet is one of my favorite pieces from my Kohl’s collection. It’s fun and goes well with just about anything.
6. Field Trip Gold Heart iPhone Case, $22
iPhone cases are one of my favorite accessories, and I actually change mine out all the time. This sweet design is an adorable V-Day gift for a friend or loved one.
For Mr. Right Now…
7. Sad Shop I Like You and Naps card, $5
In my opinion, a funny card is the perfect gift for someone you just started seeing or a casual date. It’s flirtatious without being overly sentimental.
8. Anthropologie Reclaimed Wood Gallery Frame, $68
I love the idea of gifting a photo of the two of you in a rustic, boy-approved frame.
For your wish list…
9. C. Wonder Pave Lips Bangle, $38
This lips bangle is chic a little bit cheeky at the same time. I’d love to add this thin bangle to my jewelry collection.
10. Chloe ‘Roses de Chloe’ Eu de Toilette Spray, $95
I recently came across Chloe’s newest fragrance at the beauty counter, and let me tell you—I love it. It’s a dreamy combination of bergamot, roses, and magnolia. (Hint, hint, William).
Don’t procrastinate picking out a Valentine’s Day gift this year. A truly thoughtful present is a great way to show your someone special just how special they are.
