10 Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas for Her
The idea of Cupid striking your soul mate with an arrow so you fall madly in love is great and all, but sadly not realistic; we have to do the wooing ourselves! That’s why this Valentine’s Day, we’re nixing the chocolate or flowers and suggesting thoughtful, unique, and surprising gift ideas for your leading lady. So whether the way to her heart is through premium athletic gear, bling, or a good book, you’ll find the perfect idea here.
Rest and relaxation never gets old—and for most people, neither does a cat-themed present. This kitty sleep mask is perfect for the woman who adores felines, getting her beauty sleep, and looking fabulous in the process. Plus, it comes in baby pink, lavender, or black, so you’ll be able to find a style that suits your wife’s, girlfriend’s, or crush’s taste. Since this is a smaller gift, pair it with a gift card for a massage, snuggly slippers, a cuddly throw blanket, or a bunch of DVDs to make a luxury Valentine’s Day basket. Trust us, she’ll love it!
Got a basic lady? Give her the not-so-basic yoga pant, Lululemon. This top-of-the-line brand is one of the best in the industry and will ensure your ladyfriend is comfy, stylish, and well dressed while running errands or enjoying savasana. The plum we’ve featured here is a pretty neutral, but if you’re worried about color choice, go with the navy or cadet blue—something that fits every aesthetic.
Your doll like to get dolled up? This Essie three-pack will help her look chic from head to toe, literally. Plus, with this pack’s Valentine’s Day-hues (Forever Yummy, Mademoiselle, and chip-reducing top coat, Second Shine Around) it’s thematic for the holiday too. It’s hard to go wrong with red and pink nail polish, but if the love of your life likes another color better, check out hundreds of other colors this premium, salon-quality nail polish brand has to offer.
Giving your wife or girlfriend a framed photo of yourself never goes out of style—especially with the NIX Advance Digital Frame. This frame uses motion-sensing technology, so every time your special someone walks into the room, a slideshow of photos begins to cycle through (saving on battery life, while giving her something to smile about when she sees your face). This frame also scores major points because it uses cloud technology, so you can digitally update photos every time you snap a new favorite.
If you’ve been together for a long time, your wife or girlfriend might have a ton of jewelry (thanks to you). This year, surprise her with a gorgeous piece of furniture to house it.

To make this Valentine’s Day gift for your girlfriend or wife even more spectacular, fill it with a few new sparkly pieces she’ll adore.
Silk floral robes are pretty on-trend right now; wedding parties have been getting gussied up while wearing them and models have been strutting these robes down catwalks.

Here’s a tip: complete the gift with the kitty eye mask featured above!
Making it official this Valentine’s Day with an engagement ring, asking your crush to be your girlfriend, or by moving in together?

Is your lovely lady a bookworm? Let her read until her heart’s content by giving her a Kindle E-Reader for Valentine’s Day. Load it up with some of her favorite books, love stories, or romantic poems and she’ll be head over heels.
Great love stories have been told since the beginning of time, and one of those is definitely between women and our wine. If your special someone loves sipping wine with her best friends, give her this wine tote so she can bring her favorite bottle to parties, friends’ houses, and to romantic picnics with you. Complete the gift with an aerator, a bottle or two of her favorite vintage, and even an extra large glass for laughs.
These candles last forever—maybe not as long as the eternal fire of your heart—but for months. They also smell incredible, come in a ton of different scents, and are handmade in America. Apple spice provides a great transition from wintery to spring scents, so we suggest starting there.
