A sweet mug for your sweetheart

Valentine's Day is almost here, so if you haven't picked out a gift for your special someone yet, now's the time to start looking in earnest. Sure, a lovely bouquet of flowers or a typical box of chocolates can easily do the trick of saying, "I love you" to your giftee. But getting a gift that'll impress your wife, girlfriend or any special woman in your life means going above and beyond this Feb. 14. They'll absolutely appreciate any sweet gesture, but putting a little thought and creativity into things will score you big points. To guide you on your journey, we put together a list of wonderful gift ideas that are sure to impress her this Valentine's Day.

Perhaps your Valentine has a sweet tooth but you'd like to switch things up a bit. Check out the coffee and chocolate pairing kit and DIY boba gift set. If comfort is the name of her game, the pair of cozy sweatpants, faux fur slippers or oversized boyfriend cardigan may be the way to go. Maybe she's a fan of small luxuries, in which case, there's a set of Barbie-themed champagne flutes and a lovely perfume that'll catch her eye. If she's looking for a bit of self care, the Turkish cotton robe and skincare wand are excellent choices. And if all else fails, we've compiled some cool jewelry selections like a sentimental locket and birthstone bracelet that'll bring on the Valentine's Day feels. 


Who doesn't love a proper pair of pajamas? The Cloud 9 silky pajama set from Rifle Paper Co. and Summersalt makes a statement with the lineup's eye-catching patterns -- from piping to abstract florals and iconic stripes -- and they're super comfortable. You can get her one, or stock up on each style. 

Harry and David

Instead of opting for a traditional box of chocolates, food and gift purveyor Harry & David is giving you the option to break some hearts. This set comes with six hollow chocolate hearts made with both milk and dark Belgian chocolate. Decorated with colorful drizzle on top and filled with Belgium chocolate candies and chocolate chips, this is a delicious and satisfying gift. It comes with a wooden hammer that she can use to smash open each delectable heart to get to the yummy goodness inside. 


Madewell's zip-top medium tote is part of the company's signature Transport collection and it's as gorgeous as it is durable. There's enough space here to hold everything she would need on the go: a book, wallet, keys, phone, notepad and laptop, to name a few. As the bag ages, the soft worn waxed finish of the leather evolves into a lovely patina. Each tote in this lineup is made using sustainable environmental practices in the leather industry, so she'll also have some piece of mind when she's out and about with this beauty.


Instead of having her continually take your sweaters, why not get her an oversized boyfriend cardigan of her very own? This staple from Quince is made with 100% organic cotton which means it's comfy and eco-friendly. Basically, this button-down sweater is super versatile and will level up any outfit.

Bean Box

Amp up your chocolate gift with a selection of eight curated coffees from America's best independent roasters. These varied brews will pair perfectly with the four award-winning artisanal chocolates featured in this set. The gift comes with a flavor wheel guide so she can explore the different tasting notes each varietal has to offer. Now you can add an extra bit of sweetness to her morning coffee routine.

Olive and Cocoa

If you're looking for an alternative to chocolates as a yummy gift worth giving, check out Olive & Cocoa's Gummy Love Crate. They come gift wrapped in petite and large handcrafted wood crates. Inside each are red and white gummy hearts, red and white gummy bears, red gummy pretzels, pink and white gummy puffs, red and white heart-shaped nonpareils and red and white gummy rings. The large option comes with sweet extras: jelly beans, gumdrops and red and pink gummy disks. Talk about a sweet way to kick off the holiday.


A rose scent makes a lovely Valentine's Day gift. French luxury fashion house Dior creates gorgeous, elegant scents, and this 1-ounce bottle of Miss Dior Rose N'Roses Eau de Toilette contains one of them. Eau de toilette is lighter than a perfume, and this delicate rose scent is perfect for daily wear. 


If your gal is into the Barbiecore trend (all things pink and plastic) or if she just enjoys a nice glass of champs, these flutes make a great gift. This pair of gold metallic champagne flutes would look right at home in the Barbie Dreamhouse -- and that's the point. They're ready for gifting in a box Barbie herself would love.


Put your thinking cap on, as it's time to give the gift of song. Songfinch is a unique company that creates original tunes for all sorts of occasions. All you need to do is share memories and stories about your partner, choose a genre of music and the company will do the rest. The result is a piece of music that'll deliver all the feels. After you hit play, make sure you have tissues with you. Trust us.


Pictures are worth a thousand words. Instead of putting them in a stale photo album, a lovely display such as this wood photo hanger with lights is the perfect way to celebrate your memories together. Its rustic design brings an air of coziness to the home and is sure to be the center piece of many conversations.


Solawave's award-winning skincare wand and facial massager brings top-notch spa technology into the comfort of your own home. This little device uses red light therapy, galvanic current, therapeutic warmth and facial massage to help rejuvenate the skin. If she wants to reduce the appearance of dark circles, blemishes, fine lines and wrinkles, this is the gift for her. Bonus: She only needs to use it for 3 minutes per day, three times a week.

Farmgirl Flowers

Farmgirl Flowers ships beautiful Valentine's bouquets, and their Terms of Endearment arrangement is sure to delight any valentine. We love this arrangement for its bright blooms and hand-tied, burlap wrap. You'll find a dozen roses, six stems of snapdragons, a handful of spray roses and more to admire in this bunch. Hot tip: Order now so there's time for delivery and use the code ENDEARMENT to take 25% off.

Carrie Hoffman

Did you know that the "x" in "xo" is a kiss? These gold earrings are simple enough that she'll wear them all the time, but the design will remind her of your love. This pair is a Valentine's Day-themed gift, but it's nice and subtle. Carrie Hoffman's 14K X studs are available in yellow, rose and white gold. 


When it comes to pillowcases, there are average pillow coverings and then there are the standouts that don't just help with sleep quality but are also beneficial to your hair and skin health, as well. Brooklinen's Mulberry silk pillowcases are soft, luxurious and protect skin and hair from friction damage. Talk about a win-win.


One of the many perks about staying at a five-star hotel is lounging about in a Turkish bathrobe. It's a simple pleasure, to be sure. Perhaps a vacation or trip to the spa is out of the question this Valentine's Day, but she can definitely re-create that relaxing energy with Parachute's classic Turkish cotton robe. Oh, the happiness.


Whether your love is working from home or simply likes lounging, she'll appreciate a pair of luxe cashmere sweatpants. Quince makes an affordable option just under $100, and you can even get them in Valentine's Day-appropriate burgundy. If you want to impress her with an entire outfit, add the matching cashmere hoodie

Uncommon Goods

Here's a fun gift that's straight from the heart. This little box comes with 40 wooden tickets, each with treats and offers for your partner to redeem. Breakfast in bed? Massage? Her choice on movie night? Bonus: You can personalize the box with her name on the front.


Weighted blankets are a wonderful tool that can help the most troubled sleeper catch some much-needed Z's. Bearaby's Velvet Napper is made of eco-friendly velvet and won't just help her sleep better, but this thing relieves stress and promotes an overall feeling of happiness. Basically, using it is like getting one big hug.

If your lady likes practical gifts, earbuds are a great way to go for Valentine's Day. She doesn't want chocolates: She wants sick beats. A sportier version of the AirPods, the Beats Fit Pro are a winning earbud option. The Beats Fit Pro are flexible and stay put, and she'll get six hours of listening time on a charge.

Kate Spade

The heart locket from Kate Spade is a stunner. It's dainty and so is its price. Choose the letter that corresponds with her first name, and there's space for a small photo inside. Tip: Put a photo of your family or her favorite pet in the locket before you wrap it for a personalized, sentimental touch.


Let's be real here: It's easy to go overboard with jewelry. Bawdy doesn't always equal beauty. Simplicity is the name of the game with this minimalist birthstone bracelet from DaniqueJewelry. Whether you want to include her birthstone in the piece, or add multiples to signify yourself and other loved ones, the designer offers space for up to six birthstones. Gold, rose gold and silver are the three metals you can choose from, and there's a place to select different bracelet lengths. With a starting price of $45, this bracelet's a real gem. (See what we did there?)


If you're shopping for a tea lover with a sweet tooth, Bar Pa Tea's boba tea set is a great gift idea. This vegan-friendly set comes with six servings of black and oolong teas. And of course, a boba tea kit wouldn't be complete without the boba. A vacuum-sealed bag of jumbo golden bubbles and cooking instructions bring the whole experience together. Tea time has never been so fun.


If you're interested in a romantic dinner at home, Cozymeal has a cool service that will deliver a culinary experience she won't soon forget. Starting at $49 per person, the company has an array of private chefs ready to bring their cooking specialty to your kitchen. Ever had a Michelin Star-quality meal in the comfort of your own home? Now you can say you have.


There are slippers and then there are Toms slippers. The company's vegan Lola bootie slippers are cute and comfortable, thanks to their cushioned cloudlike insoles. The fluffy faux fur lining and soft waffle knit uppers offer an extra bit of warmth for the cooler months. These slippers won't just keep her warm and cozy -- every purchase of Toms helps to fund access to mental health resources for those in need. Wellness for her feet is the icing on the cake.

Williams Sonoma

Because this is Valentine's Day, why not give her a taste of France? The Tour de France gift crate from Williams Sonoma features a delicious selection of epicurean specialties direct from the city of love. Delivered in a rustic, reusable wooden crate, she'll find items like triple-cream Brie, fruitwood-smoked salmon, pork paté and French blinis and caviar. The only thing that will probably top this gift is an actual trip to Paris. So, start planning!

Le Creuset

Le Creuset is known for its timeless kitchenware. If your love is a fan of the brand's quality stoneware, she'll swoon over this Valentine-themed mug collection. Choose a pink, red or white heart-dotted 14-ounce mug, and she'll think of you when she sips her morning coffee. Bonus: These mugs are dishwasher- and microwave-safe.
