We’re big fans of love around here—romantic love, friend love, love for our families, and self-love. It’s all about love. We’ve got some great ideas for Valentine’s cards to send to your favorite humans, and a round-up of the very best self-love gifts to snag for yourself *wink*. Now, it’s time to tackle Valentine’s Day gifts (I mean, maybe some of these are for yourself, too). And make those ones that will show up on the doorstep by (or well before) February 14th—with all the shipping delays we’ve been seeing, don’t wait until the last moment. As we’ve said time and time again, this year isn’t like the rest and we truly believe in finding joy in whatever you can these days. Even if it’s just a small token of love.
While I do like red roses and chocolate, they aren’t synonymous with Valentine’s Day in my book (I’d happily indulge any day of the year.) What I’m trying to say is that there are a bunch of meaningful Valentine’s Day gift options out there so no need to feel like you’re “stuck” with the classics. My partner and I usually take the super low-key route and split a delicious Hawaiian pizza (I know, controversial) and some seasonal craft beer for Valentine’s Day instead of a gift exchange. I must say, I’m pretty excited.
But if your idea of Valentine’s Day gift ideas has a more timeless quality to them than Hawaiian pizza, I totally get it. So, we’ve pulled our favorite stylish and thoughtful 2022 Valentine’s Day gifts just for you. Red and pink, check. Sparkly, check. The best self-care accessories, check. Whatever your giving style is (gifts, acts of service, etc.) we’re here to say roll with it. It’s time to get thoughtful and maybe a little indulgent, my friends. Let’s do this thing!
