Valentine’s Day is upon us, meaning soon enough people will be running to their local convenience stores after work to purchase last-minute boxes of chocolates and Hallmark cards. But to be honest, if you’re going to partake in the Valentine’s Day madness, why not get it over with now using that Internet thing?
If you’re not sure what to get, but know you want to get something, I guarantee you still won’t know when you’re standing in the candy aisle during sunset on February 14th. So please, use the below ideas as a guide. If you’re going to spend money on the person you love, there is a 100% chance they would prefer your money be well spent. Here are 10 Reviewed-approved gift ideas for Valentine’s Day in 2019.
1. For the one who loves sugar: Sugarfina Candy Bento Box
Sugarfina candies are not like regular candies. They are cool candies. But really. With flavors such as bourbon, rosé, and CHAMPAGNE, it doesn’t get much more fancy than this. This past year, I gave my bridesmaids the champagne cubes as a gift and everyone loved them (including me). These are an adorable, inexpensive gift, and this little box is Valentine’s Day themed!
2. For the one who loves comfort: Barefoot Dreams CozyChic Cardigan
Give the one you love something they will love AKA a cardigan that has over 2,500 reviews on Nordstrom and a 5-star rating. It is literally a comfortable blanket disguised as clothing, which I can confirm because I’ve tried it on. When it comes to cardigans and sweaters, the limit does not exist for the amount one can own. They make great gifts—especially when they’re this cozy(chic). Barefoot Dreams also sells a throw blanket if you want to benefit from this comfort too.
3. For the one who loves binge-watching TV series in one to three sittings: Roku Ultra (2018)
If you love binge-watching TV with her, give her an even better binge-watching experience: the Roku Ultra. This is our favorite streaming device and it will be yours too. Yes, both of yours, because this gift benefits you too. What’s more to love?
4. For the one who loves essential oil diffusers: An Essential Oil Diffuser
Love is peace, and love is happiness, and love is aromatherapy essential oil diffusers. But really. People are obsessed with these things. And why wouldn’t they be? They transform your home with good smells and good vibes. We tested the most popular models a few months ago and found this one by InnoGear to be the best. If we love it then she’ll love it, so please tell me a better way to celebrate love, I’ll wait.
5. For the one who loves simple things: Kendra Scott Pendant Necklace
This necklace has over 4,100 reviews on Nordstrom and a 4.5 star rating, so if you want to give the classic V-day gift of jewelry without spending a fortune, this is your best bet. With a color for everyone, this Kendra Scott necklace would be loved by anyone. If you’re not sure what color to go with, I would suggest going with the Iridescent Drusy/Gold color. Not only is it my favorite, but this style would go with anything.
6. For the one who loves doing nothing at home: Ugg Slippers
Does anything else say ‘I love you’ more than slippers? I think not. The Ugg Dakota slippers have been around for years, combining fashion and comfort into one. Not to mention, they have a 5-star rating on Nordstrom from over 3,000 reviews! Speaking from experience, you can’t go wrong with UGG slippers as a gift. In the past six years, I have given a different pair of UGG slippers to my mom, grandmother, grandfather, fiancé, and brothers – and each time, they were a hit.
7. For the one who loves fancy things: La Mer The Mini Miracle Set
La Mer is an expensive moisturizer with a cult following. So much so, that it has 50,000 hearts on Sephora. That’s a lot of love, and since Valentine’s Day is all about love, you gotta spread it (yes, that was an intended moisturizer pun). La Mer is expensive. A half an ounce of the cream is $85. However, for only $10 more, you can get the half ounce PLUS a bottle of La Mer’s ‘The Concentrate.’ Talk about value!
8. For the one who loves cute things: Mini Capri Blue Valentine’s Day Candles
If you know me, you know I am obsessed with Capri Blue candles. The Volcano scent is the best smell I have ever encountered (this could be an exaggeration, but I am going with it). These mini Valentine’s Day themed candles have different scents, but they all sound equally fantastic. Pink Sugar, Berry Sangria, Whipped Vanilla? Yes, please. The best part? They have cute little saying on the covers like “Be Mine” and “Wink Wink.” These are basically the adult version of candy hearts, and I am all in. I mean, should I buy these for myself? Maybe. Must buy more home decor!
9. For the one who loves your new relationship: Sephora Favorites Designer Fragrance Wardrobe Minis
Ten years ago, my grandmother gave me the Sephora perfume sampler as a gift and it honestly changed my life. I knew nothing about perfume, but I was able to dabble in a few best-sellers thanks to this kit. When I was done, I picked my favorite and redeemed the coupon in the gift set for a full-sized bottle of it. If you’re dating someone new and aren’t sure what perfume they like (if any at all), I recommend going with this sampler. They can try a few new ones and get a free full-sized bottle of whatever they end up liking.
10. For the one who loves you: Sam’s Basic V-Day Package
Here’s my personal take on Valentine’s Day: it’s just another day of the year. No, I do not NEED anything, but if you want to celebrate your love for me by showering me with chocolate (would I actually bathe in nutella? yes), please feel free to do so. Honestly, you could just shower me in a few compliments and I would back flip to cloud nine, but if you want to buy me chocolate, flowers, wine, french fries, pizza, and/or write me a little card, I won’t say no. Now, these smaller gestures won’t fly with everyone, so please make sure you know your audience before shopping, but if you’re browsing gifts for someone who couldn’t care less about Valentine’s Day, just resort to the hits! You really can’t go wrong! Unless you get red wine for someone who likes white wine. But do you really care about this person if you do that? I am unsure.
