2. Necklace With Custom Engraving
For a sentimental gift, create a keepsake for your special someone. Add a personal touch to jewelry, like the pendant on a beautiful necklace. Engrave your and your S.O.’s initials, your anniversary, a pet’s name, or even the coordinates of a special place.
3. Coffee Subscription
Espresso your love with a coffee subscription! Whether you’re married to a coffee connoisseur or dating someone who swears by their morning cup of joe, a subscription of high-quality coffee beans is about as foolproof as it gets.
Not ready to commit to a subscription (or the relationship)? You can order a single bag of beans coupled with a cute coffee mug for your romantic fling.
4. Flowers (But Not Roses)
Flowers for your Valentine may sound like a cliché, but a beautiful bouquet makes the majority of people happy. However, you can do better than everyone else by going rose-free this year.
The price of roses goes up on the days leading up to V-day. Choosing something different will not only save you money, it will also allow you to be more creative, send your loved one their favorite blooms, or select a less romantic flower for your friends. Here are some of the best alternatives:
- Calla lilies
- Mixed bouquets
5. Valentine’s Spa Day Gift Set
Show your significant other how lucky you are to have them in your life with the Valentine’s Spa Day Gift Set from Way of Will.
This perfect romantic bundle contains:
- 03 Soothe and Cool Massage Oil
- Kiss Jumbo Lip Balm
- Sleep Tight Essential Oil Remedy
- 45 Relax Natural Body Wash
- Muscle Soak Bath Salt
Your giftee will go head-over-heels for this gift set because it’s formulated using natural ingredients and infused with pure-grade essential oils to help comfort the mind and body.
We won’t judge if you want this gift set for yourself too. Self-care is also a form of love.
6. Wine and Chocolate
Each is delicious on its own, but if you want to go the extra mile for your fling or friend on Valentine’s Day, say “I love you!” by pairing wine with the rich flavor of chocolate.
Try out these wine and chocolate pairing ideas for a decadent February (you might just find a new favorite pair for the rest of the year too):
- Cabernet sauvignon and espresso dark chocolate truffle
- Pinot noir with milk chocolate mousse
- Chardonnay with white chocolate or chocolate-covered fruit
7. Portable Massager
So your giftee is not a fan of the usual gifts? A massager is a practical yet romantic gift that they’ll love.
This unique Valentine’s Day gift is ideal for long-distance couples. Even if you’re not around to give your loved one a massage, they’ll appreciate how thoughtful you are for wishing them more relaxing, tension-free days.
If you’re around on Valentine’s Day (yay!), ditch the massager and give your partner the gift of an at-home massage with Way of Will’s 03 Soothe and Cool Natural Body Massage Oil. It contains peppermint oil, German chamomile oil, and lemongrass oil to help boost energy and soothe the senses.
8. Stay Focused Gift Box
If your life partner, best friend, or favorite family member has been feeling overwhelmed lately, help them regain their focus with a Stay Focused Gift Box.
This great gift box includes:
- Think Straight Essential Oil Remedy for focus and concentration
- 28 Cool Fix Energizing Facial Spray for an energizing pick-me-up in an instant
- Invigorating Hand & Body Lotion that moisturizes the skin and invigorates the senses
9. Friendship Lamps
Not too sure what to get for your gal pals or grandkids who live on the other side of the world?
A pair of long-distance friendship lamps is the best Valentine’s gift you’ll get them this year.
With just a simple tap of your lamp at home, the other pair glows and lights up no matter where they are in the world (as long as there’s Wi-Fi!).
These lamps are a thoughtful yet subtle way of letting your loved ones know you’re thinking of them.
You can even gift these lamps to more than one important person in your life. Some brands, like the ones sold at Etsy, have no limit to the number of lamps you can link with each other.
10. Weighted Blankets Made of Velvet
V isn’t just for Valentine’s — V is also for velvet!
There’s nothing more relaxing than a soft, cozy weighted blanket made of velvet.
This Valentine’s day gift idea is ideal if your giftee wants to feel more relaxed during restless nights. A review of studies published in the American Journal of Occupational Therapy revealed that weighted blankets may help reduce feelings of anxiety.
To keep with the theme and give the gift of a good night’s sleep, add a few more items to your present.
Way of Will’s Sleep Tight Essential Oil Remedy For Sleep perfectly complements anything velvet (blanket, pillow, eye mask) for sleep. Its comforting, dreamy blend helps your giftee drift into a good night’s rest.
11. Personalized Comfy Hoodie
Still stumped on what to get that bae or fiancée who’s hard to shop for? Personalized gifts like a comfy and oh-so-soft hoodie with custom embroidery are the perfect gift because you can create something completely unique — even for the person who has everything.
12. Way of Will Gift Cards
Forget Amazon and Apple gift cards! For this year’s Valentine, give the gift of plant-based, natural skin care and wellness products that are good for the body, the mind, and the budget — Way of Will gift cards are available in values ranging from $5 to $1,000.
