The 5 Best Valentine's Gift Ideas for Him and Her
Valentine’s Day is coming up, and for many of us, there’s just one question on our minds: What am I going to get my partner this year?
Teddy bears are overplayed, chocolates don’t work with their diet, and somehow you think a card isn’t going to cut it. So what’s a loving partner to do?
Luckily, there are a lot of great gift ideas for him and her on Valentine’s Day. Read on to get some inspiration and make sure your Valentine’s Day is the best one yet.
Movie Scratch-Off Poster
One great option for a creative Valentine’s Day gift is to give your partner a movie scratch-off poster. You can get posters that feature action movies, romance movies, comedies, or the greatest movies of all time. There are different movie posters covered by scratch-off paint.
As you and your partner watch each movie, you can scratch off the paint to reveal the cover art.
Some of these posters feature as many as 100 different movies, so you’ll have a lot to watch. This gift is more than just a poster — it’s time you and your partner can spend together.
In recent years, you may have heard people raving about the effects of weighted blankets, and it’s easy to see why.
These blankets are comforting to lay under, aside from anything else. But they can also have some amazing benefits ranging from better sleep to less anxiety.
Weighted blankets, which usually weigh between ten and twenty pounds, simulate deep touch pressure, the kind of pressure you get when someone hugs or holds you.
This can release serotonin and dopamine, both hormones associated with happiness and pleasure.
Giving your partner a weighted blanket can make them feel like you’re holding them even when you’re far away.
If you’re looking for a way to give your partner the perfect Valentine’s Day night, getting new bedding is an excellent option.
They’ll be surprised when you two fall into bed that night, and it’s something you’ll both enjoy for years to come. And new, quality bedding goes a long way towards making your time together even more special.
Look for satin or silk sheets if you want to splurge and sateen sheets if you don’t. Get a new comforter that fits the color scheme and matches your sleeping style. And if you really want to splurge, buy a new mattress and pillows and make the bed up in time for your Valentine’s Day evening.
Birth Month Flowers
Getting someone flowers for Valentine’s Day is a classic romantic gesture. But cut flowers die within a week at best, and then that gift is gone. But what if you could get someone flowers that would last them not just a few weeks, but years to come?
You can get someone a flower growing kit that your partner can take care of and enjoy all year long. And to make it even more special, look for flowers that correspond with their birth month.
This adds a level of personalization that will make this gift something your partner will treasure and love caring for.
Subscription boxes have also gained popularity in recent years. For a monthly fee, you can get a box with just about any sort of product you care to name. And as a Valentine’s Day gift, this can be a great option, since this gift continues all year long.
You can find subscription boxes for makeup and beer, tea and dice. Look for cooking kits, hobby kits, art boxes, or toy boxes.
Any interest your partner has, there’s probably a subscription box for, so do some research and find a box that they can enjoy all year long.
If a subscription box doesn’t sound like something your partner would go for, you may want to get them an online class.
This doesn’t necessarily mean signing them up for a course at the local community college (although it can, depending on their course offerings).
Rather, this is a course that your partner can take on their schedule and at their own pace.
There are masterclasses from experts in a wide variety of fields available. You can find online classes in cooking, sewing, woodworking, writing, acting, improvisation, and much more.
If there’s something your partner has always wanted to learn about, give them the gift of knowledge this Valentine’s Day.
For Valentine’s Day, you may want to get your partner something personal to them.
Something that is unique to your relationship and carries special meaning for both of you. If this is the case, you have a wide variety of customized gifts you can choose from.
Maybe you want to get your partner a map of where the stars were on the night of your first date. Or maybe you want to get them a bracelet that says, “I love you,” in your handwriting.
You could also create a book of reasons you love them or have your vows turned into a piece of beautiful art to hang in your home.
