15 Thoughtful Valentine’s Day Gifts For Her That’ll Show Her How Much You Really Care
Valentine’s Day gifts for her can be tricky. That’s because it’s not really about the gifts at all, but about the sentiment behind them. You want her to feel like it’s a gift that’s about the two of you as a couple, and what she means to you. Sure, she’d probably love a nice tablet or Amazon Echo any other day of the year, but for Valentine’s Day? Too cold. Too impersonal.
Of course, you don’t want to get too cheesy or cliched, which is why it’s so tricky. In the end, a good Valentine’s Day gift is like pr0n: you know it when you see it, and hopefully it leads to you getting off. And with all that said, to help you in your time of need, here are 15 thoughtful Valentine’s Day gifts for her that will make her love you even more.
There’s little more personal than a journal. Let her know that you care about – and encourage – her deepest feelings. And let her know in style with this handmade leather journal, which is designed to have that vintage antique look that says that she’s the classiest of classy ladies.
Show her your domestic side with this herb garden starter kit. There’s not much more calming or meditative than cultivating your own herb garden, and it will say that you care about building something with her together that isn’t as drastic as, say, knocking her up. Sadly, it doesn’t come with the herb you probably care the most about, but put down the bong and help her plant these five herbs that she’ll use almost as often.
Bath and body products are always a safe bet, and on Valentine’s Day, you might as well go big with this gift basket loaded with products accented with chamomile and lavender. There’s everything here from essential oils to bubble baths to skin reviving hand mitts. It’s basically a spa day in a basket.
This is a great laid-back gift perfect for that woman who sneers at things like chocolates and flowers (and yes, they do exist.) This set of 30 fine tip markers will help her fulfill her artistic side as she works on her “Maybe Swearing Will Help” adult coloring book, which is filled with puns and cursing. It’s fun, it’s meditative, and it’s quirky enough that you don’t seem like a total clichéd sap.
Of course, if you’re looking for something sappy, look no further than this. Is it totally cheesy and cliched? Yeah, kinda, but that is exactly the kind of thing that some ladies love. You know if that’s your girl, and if it is, go all the way with it with this crystal music box that plays “You Are So Beautiful to Me.” Yeah, your friends might make fun of you, but none of them are going to reward you with that thing she’ll only do for you on special occasions.
Look, she knows why you’re getting this. You know why you’re getting this. But she gets a massage out of the deal and you get to, well, there’s a reason why it’s called “sensual” massage oil. But for real, this is a great small gift to pair with a bigger gift. It’s something you can share together, and that goes a long way on a day like Valentine’s Day.
This set of twelve bath bombs will let her have twelve unique bath experiences, since each “bomb” colors the water a different color and adds a different scent. All she has to do is close her eyes and she’ll feel like she’s relaxing on a tropical beach or picnicking a field of flowers. There’s even a scent simply titled “Love.” This is a great idea for the woman who likes to spend an hour just relaxing in the tub.
Is your girl a gamer? Well then she’ll love this shirt. It’s a great gift that tells her it’s about who she is and what she loves to do rather than just another box of chocolates you grabbed while you were in the checkout line. Plus, she’s a better gamer than you and it’s about time you acknowledged that.
A nice pendant is a Valentine’s Day classic, but you’re usually stuck picking one that either (A) costs so much your Valentine’s Day dinner consists of Ramen, or (B) looks like a cheap piece of crap that just ends up making her feel bad. It’s no good, bros. But this pendant is the answer you’ve been looking for. As one reviewer says: “Most importantly, it looks expensive, but is really cheap.” There you have it.
This is a great “cute” gift, especially if you’re in a fairly new relationship and aren’t up to the “expensive (or at least expensive looking) jewelry” stage yet. This particular bear is cute without being overly corny too, with a heartwarming “Shawty U Fine As Shit Tho” message written on it. And in turn it shows that you’re cute and funny and all that good shit.
Again, if you’re gonna go clichéd and kinda cheesy you better go big and you better do it in a way that makes it clear you put some time and effort into it. Rather than just the usual bouquet of roses that all her friends got, put a unique spin on it with this, a real rose coated with lacquer and then trimmed with 24k gold so that the rose not only looks beautiful, but lasts a lifetime. Which, of course, sends a message to her about the depth of your commitment and blah blah blah… you’re having sex.
This is a great idea that’s quirky and smart, especially for someone who’s a little more artistic and into preserving all your oh so special memories. The mini camera itself is a great retro camera with a modern twist, and the accessories bundle gives her a ton of ways to trick out her new pics. This is cute, it’s trendy, it’s hip and it’s the perfect gift for that kind of girl.
Is she into arts and crafts? Well, this scrapbook and photo album is a perfect gift for her. It says that you not only “get” her, but that you’re into preserving your memories together. For extra points, pair this gift with the Fujifilm instax mini camera and be the Valentine’s Day hero she deserves.
For something elegant and tasteful, that says you love her on a sophisticated level that doesn’t need any cheesy schmaltz, pick up this classy bangle, watch and bracelet set. The bangle is accented with 36 Swarovski crystals and the Japanese quartz watch has a minimalist look that’s elegant and quietly beautiful. Just like her.
This is a double shot of romance, as one side is perfect for a picture of the two of you together – she’ll love that to death – and the other side has a romantic poem that lets you know how much she means to you. Now, here’s the real big baller move: the poem is removable, so if you’ve got the chops (and, hell, even if you don’t, it’s almost more romantic that way) write her your own poem, put it on one side and a picture of the two of you together on the other. And that, bros, is the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for her.
