What can I say, I love love! I’m obsessed with sorting through Valentine’s Day gift ideas, be they for your partner, your Galentine or (the person I’ll be shopping for!) yourself. So many people tend to make V-Day all about romantic relationships, but really, it’s about love—and whatever that means to you.
Of course, there are the obvious V-Day gifts: chocolates, flowers, teddy bears. But let’s be honest, we’re all a little sick of them! This year, I’m thinking more along the lines of sexy signature scents, charcuterie for your cutie and dried blooms that will last way longer than a dozen cheesy red roses.

Personal touches are what really make your romantic Valentine’s celebration one to remember, so don’t think you have to splurge to win over your boo. That said, if you do want to surprise them with a gift or two, the ones on this list are pretty damn good.

This Candle To Set The Mood

A Sexy Scent
Tom Ford’s Lost Cherry is such a great unisex fragrance, but any perfume or cologne you think your partner might like is a great Valentine’s Day gift idea. Don’t forget to spritz it on them before you get down and dirty so you can enjoy the scent, too!

Some Fancy Jewelry
If you aren’t ready for a diamond ring just yet, how about a gorgeous pair of lab diamond earrings? With Clarity has tons of lab diamond pieces that are just as sparkly (and far more affordable!) than the real thing. My advice? Skip the cheesy V-Day heart motifs and get something that aligns with the style of jewelry they actually like. This pair is so chic!
