Send This Valentine’s Day Gift Guide to Your Partner as a Not-So-Subtle Hint

valentine's day gift ideas

I hate to say it, but coming up with cute Valentine’s Day gift ideas is arguably the worst part about the holiday.

So I pulled together a list of things that I personally own (or would like to receive, hint hint)—and enlisted the help of Matt for gifts that he has appreciated over the years.

Check out our fool-proof guide below, including some last minute gifts for the guy in your life.

Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas for Him, Her, and Them

Hotel Lobby Candle Signature Candle

Yes, this is a shameless self-plug—sue me (please don’t sue me). But this candle would truly be the best Valentine’s Day gift and it’d be a disservice to us all if I left it out.

This Signature candle is subtle, sophisticated, and luxurios, adding the perfect touch of sexiness.

Plus, we designed the packaging so that your significant other doesn’t even have to worry about wrapping paper.

Tommy John Pajama Set

Tommy John has been my go-to place for gifts lately. They make the comfiest loungewear and pajamas for men and women.

I don’t know what kind of sorcery they use to make their fabric but it’s just next level. I wear these 95% of the time I go to bed. Obsessed with this print for Valentine’s Day! Use code SILB25 for 25% off.

Tommy John Zen Ribbed Joggers

The guys in your life should enjoy being comfy too! These joggers are really popular and come in a few different colors.

Fluted Vase

Fill this classic vase with a bunch of flowers from your local grocery store for a pretty DIY bouquet on a budget.

Dior Lip Glow Oil

You can’t really go wrong with this lip oil in my opinion. It’s so dewy and hydrating, and it goes on smoothly. The perfect finishing touch to any makeup look.

Men’s UGG Slippers

It’s no secret that UGG’s were the gift of the year. Treat your guy to these cozy slip ons. He’ll have them for years to come.

Dash Mini Heart Waffle Maker

Need a quick gift for under $10? Waffle maker is a bit of a misnomer here, a more apt title would be “Panini, Hashbrown, Any Other Food You’re Willing To Make, Waffle Maker.” I know, it sounds ridiculous, but I seriously use this every weekend.

Women’s Satin Pajama Set

This pajama set has 2,000 nearly perfect reviews and is under $30, so you can’t really go wrong. The pink and white stripes give the set a subtle Valentine’s Day feel without being over the top.

Bottle Stopper

This bottle stopper looks much fancier than its price point. I’ve always thought that wine stoppers were a thoughtful gift. They’re not something you typically buy for yourself but they’re certainly useful.

This would be so cute to gift to a friend or your mom!

Himalayan Salt Shot Glasses

These shot glasses are perfect for any at-home get together but I think they’d be totally cute for a Galentine’s celebration.

Stanley Quencher

If you haven’t jumped on board with the Stanley trend yet, here’s your sign to. They really are worth the hype. Love that this one is so neutral.

Eberjey Pajama Set

Eberjey pajamas are soooo cozy. Men shouldn’t miss out on the experience of slipping into these before bed. Gift him this set and he’ll be sure to thank you.

Date Night in Activity Journal

Keep the spark alive and learn something new about your partner with this activity book. It’s filled with fun quizzes, writing prompts, and questions that will deepen your relationship.

Pink Estelle Glasses

Whether you’re hosting a special Galentine’s Day dinner or having a relaxing night in with a cocktail in hand these glasses are a no-brainer. Estelle glasses are so in right now and these give off majorly festive vibes.

Barefoot Dreams in The Wild Throw Blanket

I don’t know that any written explanation can give this blanket the justice it deserves—is there a word beyond cozy? heavenly? dreamy? Whatever that word is, this blanket is that.

Our Place Always Pan

I’m not a huge cook, so, yes, it’s great that Our Place’s Always Pan comes with so many cool cooking features (or so I’ve heard), but that’s not really what I care about.

Here’s what I do care about: This pan is very pretty and very easy to clean. I’m talking ooey-gooey-cheese-sliding-right-off-the-pan, little-to-no-scrubbing-necessary easy. I rest my case.

Fujifilm Instax Mini 11 Bundle with Film

Okay, so cute right?! I know. This update-on-a-classic features a special mode and mirror next to the lens just for taking selfies. Plus, the credit-card sized prints are so insta-worthy.

Parachute Cloud Cotton Robe

We’re all stuck indoors for the foreseeable future; we might as well get cozy. This robe is super cozy and luxurious without feeling too heavy and leaving me overheated.

Whiskey Stones Gift Set

These rock! Haha, I’m so sorry for that. Anyway, these granite whiskey stones are very chic and perfect for cooling your drink.

Throw them in the freezer a couple hours before happy hour, and they’ll keep your spirits undiluted and chilled all night long.

The set comes with two crystal glasses, eight granite stones, tongs for serving up the rocks, and a sleek wooden display stand.

Live Beautiful Book

You can never go wrong with a fancy coffee table book, whether you’re gifting to your mom, friend, girlfriend, or sister. This one is so pretty you’ll actually want to flip through all of the pages.

Leatherology Customized Key Chain

I think this is a really chic, simple gift to get someone you have no idea what to buy. It’s not any sort of fashion statement; just a no nonsense, practical buy. Extra points for personalization.

Urban Stems Dried Bouquet + Vase

urban stems dried bouquet + flowers

Flowers are kind of like the goldfish of kind gestures, because it seems really nice and thoughtful in theory, but it’s actually just an added responsibility that will eventually die. Luckily, dead, dried up flowers are a lot nicer than dead, floating goldfish.

Leatherology Parker Backpack

Leatherology Parker Backpack

Meet your Jansport’s hot older sister. Made with a leather exterior and soft fabric lining, this backpack isn’t just work-appropriate; it’s also very stylish. Plus, it has ample space and hidden compartments that’ll hold, and protect, everything you need.

Marble Bar Tool Set

The best way to say I love you? Alcohol. I truly believe every adult should have a comprehensive set of bar tools, and this set gets extra points for its pretty appearance—I love the marble stand.

Jack Black Beard Oil

This is a bit bougie, but it was one of my best-sellers last Valentine’s Day—side note: I love you all for being as ridiculous as I am. This beard oil is formulated with vitamin E and powerful antioxidants that help protect skin against the damaging effects of free radicals and environmental pollutants.

It will leaves beards (or mustaches, you do you) smooth, moisturized, and subtly fragranced, thanks to its mix of organic ingredients that are free of synthetic fragrance, parabens, and colorants.

Lounge Pajama Set

I basically lived in this lounge set while working from home the past couple of years. It would make for a comfy and cute date night in look.

NAADAM The $75 Cashmere Sweater

Naadam the $75 Cashmere Sweater

Made in a slew of colors and fits, this $75 cashmere sweater is an absolute no-brainer. It’s cost effective, chic, and oh-so-cozy.

Available in both men’s & women’s (so go ahead, get one for yourself while you’re buying another as a gift.)

I love the brand so much that I wrote a whole review of their cashmere.

Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer Hot Air Brush

There is no gift quite like the gift of great hair. I’ve been a fan of this tool for years, and I swear, everyone who tries it loves it. A salon-worthy blowout in 10 minutes? Sign me up.

Deluxe Foot Warmer

I know they aren’t very chic but I have to say, these heated booties make for some very cozy toes. It’s the sort of gift you’d never think to buy for yourself but love to have.

Faux Fur Slippers

Speaking of cozy toes, meet my absolute favorite slippers. I’ve recommended these for years now and they’ve always been a popular holiday gift.

Electric Picks Love Letter Necklace

I’ve been eyeing this brand for a while now—the price points are great, and the jewelry is seriously gorgeous. This dainty monogrammed lock is the perfect non-cheesy Valentine’s Day jewelry gift.

Personal Indoor/Outdoor Fire Pit

colsen personal indoor/outdoor fire pit

Sounds weird, yes, but stay with me. This is a portable tabletop fireplace, which means you can cozy on up by the fire anytime, anywhere you want. It’s quick, easy, and smokeless.

Man Crates Exotic Meats Grand Bouquet

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a million times: nothing’s sexier than a good slab of meat. Fight the patriarchy and give your beau this beautiful bouquet of raw meat.

Truff Hot Sauce Set

Wanna keep things spicy this Vday? (I had to, and I will not apologize this time). Get your hot (sauce-loving) partner this indulgent duo. I have it and use it on EVERY SINGLE THING. It’s so good and I don’t remember life without Truff. 

Parachute Down Duvet Insert

A gift for both of you, really. Matt and I have this and think it significantly elevated our sleeping experience. Super breathable but also insanely cozy.

Stella Artois Chalice 2-Pack

Believe me when I tell you—beer tastes better when you’re drinking it out of a chalice. I have a set of these and use them more than I would like to admit.

Two Piece Pajama Set

These pajamas are under $32 and have pretty stellar reviews. I love that they come in a handful of colors….and you truly can’t beat the price!
