Valentines Day gifts for if you’re casually dating 

This is the trickiest of all dating situations when it comes to Valentine’s Day gift season! You’ve been on only a few dates, and it’s nowhere near serious, so splurging on a present could do more harm than good. 

Unfortunately, we can’t confidently suggest a gift in this case. With that being said, if you know you like spending time with someone, why not suggest an easy dinner date? Pasta, pizza, nothing fancy, no big deal—just two people going out for food, maybe opening a bottle of wine. Simple and nonthreatening!

Valentine’s Day gifts for if you’ve been together for three to six months

You’ve been exclusive for a few months, and your heart still jumps when you see their name in your notifications. Cute! While you might feel like giving them the world, your bank balance won’t quite let you follow through.

One of the most romantic things to do on Valentine's day is to focus on your partner. Turn down the lights, light a candle, and help them unwind a little. Here are some of the best Valentine's day gifts for your girlfriend or boyfriend to help you create a little pamper sesh.

  • Set the mood with a candle: If you need any proof of the sensual powers of this candle, just read the reviews. The Lola James Harper #16 The Woody Office of Daddy Candle has a distinctively sexy scent that is both luxe and powerful. This sensuous candle carries notes of Mahogany, Sandalwood, Patchouli and Cedar. Plus, with a 50 hour burn time, you can keep this candle burning all night long.

  • An aromatic body treatment oil: On Valentine's day a nice massage can be a huge treat. The Grown Alchemist Body Treatment Oil is a hydrating and softening formula that glides right onto the skin without feeling tacky. This luxurious Vegan treatment contains Sea Buckthorn Berry, Camellia Seed Oil and Tamanu Oil to keep the skin supple. It also includes Ylang-Ylang Essential Oil, which alleviates stress and works as a natural aphrodisiac.

Valentine’s Day gifts for if you’ve been together for a year or more

Woah, a whole year together?! That went fast. What better way to celebrate your little love bubble than with a cheeky getaway for two? Whether you fancy a beach break, a country town affair, or a city-stomping cocktail adventure, now’s the time to get your romantic game into gear.

  • A gift perfect for a romantic beach holiday: Show your love you truly care by helping them look after their skin. Pack the ultra-cool Biologi x Ultra Violette Limited Edition Gift Set if you’re going anywhere near the sun. This limited edition gift set comes with mini versions of the Biologi Bf Restore Face & Body Serum,  Biologi BL Nourish Lip Serum, and the Ultra Violette Clean Screen SPF30+. It’s everything you need to keep your partner hydrated, cool and protected. Isn’t that level of care evidence of real love?

  • The ultimate getaway: Forget one night, or a single weekend, take the whole week off with the Aesop Departure Travel Kit. There’s nothing worse than setting out and realising you’ve forgotten your shower essentials, so remember to pack this carry case of treats to keep things feeling fresh. This collection comes with everything you need for your perfect little getaway, from toothpaste to body wash to a hydrating face mask.

Valentine’s Day gifts for couples living together

You’re sharing a bookshelf, the big food shop, and your Netflix and Amazon passwords. It’s official: you’re living with someone! Exciting times. What’s not always exciting is getting used to someone else’s predictable presents. Here are our top picks to shake things up around the place.

  • Enliven your environment: Transport yourself to a more exotic place while remaining in the comfort of your own home with the Maison Balzac Brule Parfum Oil Burner- Amber. This Amber glass oil burner creates a distinctive vibe with whatever scent you use in it, be it Rose, Musk, Sandalwood or Patchouli. Light it up to create the perfect mood for your night in, and let the gorgeous orange tones flicker in the background while you enjoy a new take on a familiar space.

  • Something for the bedroom: As far as I’m concerned, there is nothing sexier than a good night's sleep. Make them feel like heaven when they doze off with the Shhh Silk Silk Pillowcase Queen Size. This 100% Pure Mulberry Silk pillowcase is the luxe present of their dreams. It reduces frizz and flyaways, stops your skincare from slipping off your face, and it elevates your bedroom decor. Sounds like a home run to me.

Valentine’s Day gifts for married couples

You found your one, and everyone knows it. Whether you’re still enjoying the honeymoon stage or you’ve been solid for years, marital bliss doesn’t mean you should get lazy. It’s nice to surprise your significant other on V-Day, especially if they’re not expecting it!

  • A great gift for your husband: An excellent Valentine’s Day gift for your husband is the iconic Giorgio Armani Acqua di Gio Pour Homme Eau De Toilette. You’ll want to keep snuggling up to give him a sniff, and he’ll feel all fancy wearing it. This scent contains Citrus base notes mixed with notes of Jasmine, Rosemary and Patchouli. Simply irresistible.

  • Valentine’s Day gift ideas for her: Looking for an amazing Valentine’s Day gift idea for her? You can’t go wrong with the undeniable power of the Cloud Nine The Gift of Gold 3.0 - The Original Iron. Whether she’s working with curly, kinky, or straight hair, she’ll think of you every time she heats it up. Plus, if she loves accessories, it comes with a luxurious white case and drink bottle we know she’ll just adore.

Valentine’s Day gifts for your friends 

It doesn’t have to be all about the gushy, lovey-dovey stuff. Your bestie has been there for you through thick and thin, so why not give them a treat? Valentine’s day (or as I like to call it, Galentine’s Day) is definitely worth celebrating with friends. 

  • Something for their skin care stash: The Adore Beauty Medium Cosmetic Bag - Blush is the perfect gift for your friends who love skincare and makeup goodies. You can pack this cosmetic bag to the brim with party treats, or gift it alone to the friend who has everything (now she has somewhere to put it all!) We love the blush vegan leather trim, clear PVC and rose gold zip. However, if pink is not their vibe this lovely bag comes in black too.

  • Face mask party: Essential to the concept of Galentine’s Day is a good pack of face masks. Invite your gal pals over, get in your PJ’s, crank up the Madonna, crack open a pack of these bad boys and there you go, you’ve got a perfect night in. We love the Aceology Rose Petal Modeling Mask 4 Pack because they have a calming formula that will suit a range of skin types. They’re also pretty and pink and look perfect in selfies.

Or…. Just buy a Valentine’s Day gift for yourself!

Let’s not forget the most important person in all of this: you! It’s great to treat loved ones, but why not make Valentine's Day a little bit more about you? From our perspective, being single on Valentine’s Day is something to be celebrated too.

  • Try this self-care set: Another gift from us to you is the Adore Beauty Rose Quartz Facial Massage Set. This exclusive Adore Beauty set contains a Rose Quartz Face Roller and a Rose Quartz Gua Sha to help your skin care sink in, promote circulation and decrease puffiness. It’s the perfect way to elevate your skin care and self care routine. P.S. You can pop it in your fridge for a lovely cooling effect!

  • For the true romantic: We consider self pleasure to be another form of self care. What’s more romantic than that? Continue your self-love journey with the Smile Makers The Romantic, which you can use on date night or when you’re just flying solo. This super quiet, waterproof device can be used internally or externally, and is designed to follow the contours of your body, making it a unique addition to any collection.
