We recently shared some Valentine’s ideas that aren’t things if you are looking for a gift that doesn’t require spending money or a gift that involves lots of quality time together. But, of course, you can’t go wrong with wrapping up a present to let them know you are thinking of them. If you are looking for something besides the usual flowers and chocolate, here are a few gift ideas for your special Valentine.
Gifts For Her
I love anything that helps me get a good night’s sleep. Spritz this sleep mist in chamomile lavender scent into the room just before going to bed for a touch of relaxation. For a little extra touch, pair your gift with a new silk pillowcase.
Another option for providing relaxation before bed, is this Deep Sleep Bath Soak. These therapeutic bath salts are lightly fragranced with chamomile, vetiver, and lavender. Run her a hot bath with a spoonful of this bath soak at the end of a long day.
This luxurious lip balm provides sheer coverage and leaves lips glowing and hydrated. It comes in several color shade choices, and can be worn alone or underneath a favorite lipstick color. I like the ‘universal clear’ color for everyday wear.
Nothing says I love you on Valentine’s Day like a beautiful heart shaped necklace. This sparkly beauty from Kendra Scott is classy and elegant. It comes in 5 color options so you can match her style. I also love that their products ship in cute packaging making gift giving a breeze.
I have one of these and I use it daily. It’s the perfect on-the-go size for running around doing errands or carpooling kids. It has internal sections to keep your items organized and a zipper pocket on the outside that’s a perfect size for your phone.
These beautiful, gold bracelets can be worn alone or work perfectly for stacking with others. I love that they are stretchy for getting on and off easily. For a complete stacked look, pair with these or these.
For the wine connoisseur, gift a new set of wine glasses. This set of 2 glasses is dishwasher safe and comes in a sleek, modern design. To really top off the gift, wrap up the glasses along with her favorite bottle of wine.
Words of appreciation can go a long way. This little book comes with pages filled with writing prompts and easy, fill-in-the blank questions. Take some time to thoughtfully complete this book letting her know all the things you love about her.
Have your favorite couple photo turned into a custom piece of artwork. This minimalist style design will look beautiful framed and hung in a special spot. After uploading your photo, the artwork will be designed and you’ll be able to download it as a digital file so you can print it in the paper and size of your choice.
Gifts For Him
You may have noticed in one of our videos that Penn has a tattoo where his wedding band would be. That’s one way to ensure you never have a lost band. But aside from a tattoo, these silicone wedding bands are a great option for the guy in your life who might be prone to losing things. It’s also a great option for activities like playing sports or going to the beach so you don’t risk losing your actual wedding band.
Take his beverages to the next level with this ice mold that makes large, sphere shaped ice. The larger size ice is slower melting and looks very fancy in his favorite glass. Pair the ice mold with his favorite bottle of bourbon or whiskey for a complete gift.
The Lawn Mower 3.0, as it’s called, is a fully waterproof and rechargeable groin groomer. This is the gift you are looking for if you want to go the super personal route. It might be the gadget that your man didn’t realize he was missing from his life.
Update his wallet with this personalized slim wallet. It’s just the right size for carrying a few cards and cash that will still fit easily in his pocket. You can choose your wallet color and one of six design choices for personalization. It is handmade and comes with RFID blocking technology.
For a jewelry gift, this wrap bracelet holds a sweet surprise. You can have your own personalized message engraved on the inside of the clasp as a sweet reminder of your love every time they put it on. The bracelet is offered in several sizes and colors, so you may need to sneak a measurement of his wrist before you order.
For the coffee lover, this handsome mug can be his very own coffee mug so he doesn’t have to keep using your cute one with the funny mom quote written on it. Wrap it up along with a bag of his favorite coffee, or gift him a coffee subscription to last the whole year.
Is your golfer feeling the winter blues? Give him this indoor putting mat to use at home or in the office. It rolls up for easy storage, and includes an incline to get those putts just right.
One thing I know about my man is that he loves words of affirmation. Really, don’t we all love to hear positive words about ourselves from other people? This book comes with easy to fill-in pages and thought starters so you can tell him all of the reasons that make him awesome.
If your guy loves anything space related, this romantic artwork is a sure winner. The print shows a picture of the night sky for the specific date and location that you give. You could enter information for the day you met, the day you started dating, your wedding date, etc. The art comes printed on premium cardstock in a variety of sizes to choose from.
Gifts You Can Share
If you are a couple that loves to travel, this scratch off world map can be a sweet reminder of all the places you’ve visited together (or hope to visit!). Simply scratch off where you’ve traveled so reveal a colorful background. There are also other options, such as this United States map if you are traveling around the country.
This foot massager is the gift that keeps on giving. Great after a long day on your feet or a long walk, stick your feet in this for some much needed pampering. It massages and heats at the same time for ultimate relaxation. I especially like that the foot sleeves are detachable and washable.
When you’ve been together for a while, sometimes it’s hard to get creative and think of new things to do or talk about. This book does the work for you! It’s filled with games, quizzes, and conversation starters for a fun date night in. Or, if you’re up for more challenging adventures together, try The Adventure Challenge Couples Edition. If you do the Adventure Challenge, elevate your gift by including a photo printer to easily document your adventures in the space provided in the book.
We may be biased, but we think our book, Everybody Fights, is a perfect couples gift to share. Penn and I both share stories from our point of view in marriage and share all the tips we’ve learned from our marriage counseling. I promise it’s full of laughs and fun stories, but all with a goal of helping you learn to take your relationship from good to great. If you’re feeling up for it, read it outloud together or purchase the audio version and schedule time to listen together.
We love a fun escape room, however, they are typically more easily done with a small group of people rather than as just a couple. If you’re feeling up for a double date night with friends, plan a visit to a local escape room. But if you want to have the excitement of figuring out clues from the comfort of your own home, try this escape room challenge game. Pour your favorite drinks, and see how fast you can escape!
