Valentine’s Day will be here before you know it, which means it’s time to kick your shopping into high gear and show your partner you care with a token of your affection. Gifts aren’t everything, but when it comes to romance, they sure can help someone feel special on Feb. 14. Wives and girlfriends appreciate a sweet gesture, but finding the perfect gift isn’t always easy. Luckily, we’ve compiled a great gift guide so you’re bound to find something she’ll love.
Perhaps your valentine is the traditional type who’d love a pretty bouquet or a box of candy. If she prefers little luxuries, we’ve got a lovely perfume, or Barbie champagne flutes. If your love is the practical type, earbuds or some nice sweatpants might be more her speed. And if you’re looking for jewelry, you can’t go wrong with gold. Opt for a striking pair of studs or a sentimental locket to present on Valentine’s Day.
1. Heart jacquard throw blanket
The heart print on this 60×50-inch blanket is perfect for Valentine’s Day, but your love will want to cozy up with it all year. It’s perfect for snuggling on the couch to watch your favorite shows. The jacquard throw features a tassel trim and it’s machine washable.
2. Diptyque Eau Rose eau de toilette
A French rose scent makes a lovely Valentine’s Day gift. Luxury perfumer Diptyque creates gorgeous, elegant scents, and this 3.4-ounce bottle of Eau Rose contains one of them. Eau de toilette is lighter than a perfume, and this delicate rose scent is perfect for daily wear. If you’re in the mood to splurge, add the hand and body lotion too.
