The 80 Best Valentine’s Day Gifts for Your Boo: Romantic, Sexy & Platonic Gift Ideas

Valentine’s Day 2023 is going to be here soon, and, despite the flack it receives for being overly commercial, we still think it’s a great holiday for celebrating love. Rather than thinking about the big V-day in terms of the red and pink greeting cards at your local drug store, think of it instead as a day to appreciate the people you love the most in the world. It’s a day to celebrate relationships, lifelong bonds and the friendships that keep us all going in dark times. Of course, one of the best ways to show someone you care about them is by picking out the best Valentine’s Day gifts.

We’ve put together our favorite Valentine’s Day gifts for women, men and anyone else you want to celebrate come February 14. We’ve got gift ideas for boyfriends, gifts for girlfriends, gifts for wives and everyone in between. Plus, plenty of classic Valentine’s Day gift ideas such as chocolates and flowers.

While single people might complain about this holiday, we believe that complaining gets you nowhere in life, and it’s definitely not helpful in a relationship. So why not go ahead and order some gorgeous fresh flowers and try to enjoy this romantic holiday?

We’ve gathered the best Valentine’s Day gift ideas for partners, individuals, families and all types of special relationships. Some are romantic, some cute, some delicious and some are downright sexy, but we’ve also included a few practical gift ideas, too. (Hello, acts of service is a love language, folks!) We’ve tried to cover it all so everyone can find something to enjoy on February 14 and feel the love.

Comfy and Cozy Slippers

Having trouble coming up with a knock-out gift for your S.O.? We get it, people are hard to please! Everyone has a thing and sometimes that thing doesn’t come with a detailed list for gifts. That said, there are some foolproof ideas that everyone will appreciate. And from where we’re sitting, the number one item on that list is a pair of comfy slippers.

The beauty of a pair of slippers is that while everyone wants them, most people won’t buy a pair for themselves. They’re a luxury item. Something we can all live without, but especially these days, something everyone should own. Whether your partner suffers from constant cold feet or simply appreciates a high-quality slipper, we can all but guarantee these will go over well. Ditch the lace-ups already. Cozy is in.

L.L. Bean

Whatever their taste or style, your male S.O. is bound to love L.L. Bean’s Wicked Good Moccasins. However, for women, we recommend UGG’s gloriously fuzzy Fluff Yeah Slide Slipper.

An electric lighter makes lighting candles, incense or other fragrant goodies easier, and makes for a thoughtful, practical Valentine’s Day present. This one has a wind and splash-proof design, so it’s built durable for use in a wide range of conditions. It’s got an LED battery level indicator, and since it doesn’t use butane it’s a safer device to have around the house.

Anker Portable Charger

No, a portable charger is not nearly as sexy as lingerie or as romantic as chocolates. But, that doesn’t mean a portable charger isn’t a great Valentine’s Day gift. If your loved one is constantly running out of battery (or stealing your charger), gift them the incredibly practical gift of extra juice. This 10000mAh external battery can fully charge an iPhone XS 2.5 times over, allowing your S.O. the ability to do just about anything over the course of the day and never hit zero. Aside from the fact that this is extremely affordable, the reviews speak for themselves. How could almost 60,000 people be wrong?

If you’re feeling a little self-conscious about gifting something so utilitarian, pair it with another gift on our list! Perhaps the wireless earbuds or mini massage gun. But regardless, out of all the things you’ll gift this year, we promise this will get the most use.


Date Night Bucket List

This is a great gift if you’re in a new relationship or looking to spice up a long-term one with some new date night ideas. This little tin comes chock full of date night ideas printed on birch wood sticks that you can draw randomly. They contain ideas like stargazing, attending a lecture at a local museum, and other “bucket list” items to experience together. Once you’ve completed the date, you write the date on the back of the stick to preserve the memory. Cute, right?
