Finding the right Valentine’s Day gift always feels like a test, doesn’t it?
If you’re thoughtful and prepared you can be a hero. If you phone it in…you could be headed down a dark and lonely path.
Ok, maybe it’s not always that dire. But it is challenging to think of new and different Valentine’s gift ideas to show her you really care.
Here are a few unique ideas for Valentine’s Day gifts you can actually feel good about giving her:
1. Scratch Map
For the girl who loves to travel…get her this unique Scratch Map that lets her scratch off the places she’s been. Who knows, if you behave, maybe she’ll take you along on her next trip…
2. Love is Art Kit
Taking selfies in bed together is one thing, but the “Love is Art” kit is a whole new way to commemorate that, ahem, “special time.” The full kit includes plastic sheeting, white cotton canvas, non-toxic and washable red or black paint, disposable slippers, and a body scrubber. After you’re done “painting” together, you’ll have a tangible artistic reminder of your time together (see picture at top of article).
3. Yoga Tote
The Manduka Go Ready Yoga Tote ensures that getting to and from yoga will be just as relaxing and zenlike for her as when she’s doing, you know, vinyassas and stuff. It includes enough space for a decent size yoga mat as well as a yoga towel and clothes, keys, water bottle, and everything else a traveling yogi might need.
4. Spa in a bag
Let her pamper herself with these hand-crafted, honey-infused body products from Pennsylvania. This Spa in a Bag includes Honey Body Butter, Honey Body Scrub, Dead Sea Salts infused with lavender, and Honey Lip Balm, all bundled up in an organic cotton tote.
5. Himalayan Salt Tequila Glasses
Yep, that’s right. These glasses are actually made out of salt. The rich taste of Himalayan crystal salt enhances the flavor of her favorite tequila.
6. City Skyline Wood Routings
These one-of-a-kind wood routings are hand-crafted and sanded by arborist and landscape designer Dave Marcoulier.
7. Love Carries All print
This beautiful print will brighten any room. Meanwhile, you’ll earn major points by showing your softer side. An elephant, suspended by balloons in the shape of a heart? Better order in—it’s go time…
8. Peacock Wine Glasses and Carafe
These delicately etched stemless glasses will be right at home in her hand when you sip wine together and gaze into each other’s eyes.
9. Molecular Gastronomy Kit
With this Molecular Gastronomy Kit, the two of you can turn your personal chemistry into more magic in the kitchen. The kit includes everything you need to experiment at home with molecular techniques seen on the Food Network and in high-end restaurants.
10. Wooden Martini Glasses
With these handsome wooden martini glasses, she’ll be able to add a whole other layer of charm to your next cocktail hour.
11. Pedestal Jewelry Holder
This uniquely designed jewelry holder is as much form as it is function. It’s pretty to look at by itself, and it helps organize all the future jewelry that you’ll be buying her.
12. Go Pro
Ok, you got me. This GoPro is really what I want for Valentine’s Day. But even so, if your lady friend is the adventurous type, she may also appreciate being able to take crazy pictures at all angles on the go.
