You’re not someone who likes to settle — and neither is the lady in your life. So, when February 14 comes around, you do everything in your power to wow the special someone in your life with a gift that they’ll cherish forever. While flower deliveries, gourmet chocolates, and teddy bears are lauded as romantic go-tos, think outside the box this year with these unique Valentine’s Day gifts for her. This list, which can be used to find something for your girlfriend, wife, mom, or best friend, is full of thoughtful gift ideas that will definitely make her feel the love on Valentine’s Day and beyond. Some picks look and feel expensive (silk pajamas), and others are packed with romance (preserved roses), but all of these gifts will put your feelings on display, especially if you find a way to personalize them with meaningful messages, photos, or inside jokes.
If you’re still recovering from your Christmas spending, don’t worry: We’ve included tons of Valentine’s Day gifts that have a cheap price tag (starting as low as $10) that are just as memorable as more luxury finds. Most of these ideas can arrive in just two days or less thanks to Amazon Prime, but we recommend checking out our list of last-minute gift ideas just to be safe.
