Valentine’s Day 2021 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 Hallmark aisle at your local drug store, think of it instead as a day to appreciate the ones you love. It’s a day to celebrate love, relationships, lifelong bonds and the friendships that keep us all moving forward. Of course, one of the best ways to show someone you care about them is by picking out one of 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 Sunday, 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 gifts 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.

Here are the best Valentine’s Day gifts for 2021.


Best Valentine’s Day Gifts: Box of Chocolates

I mean, it’s a classic gift for a reason. Who doesn’t want to drown in a box of gourmet chocolates come mid-February? This chocolate gift basket is the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for yourself, your partner, your neighbor and even your mailman — if that feels appropriate. Each box of Bonnie & Pop chocolates is filled to the brim with individually wrapped treats. Indulge in Milk Butter Pecan Patties, Cashew Clusters, Pretzel Clouds, Pecan Snappers, Sea Salt Caramels, English Toffee, Bavarian Pretzels and more chocolatey surprises. And because it’s available via Amazon Prime, you can order it up to two days before Valentine’s Day.

Oculus Quest 2 VR Headset


The Oculus Quest 2 VR Headset may not scream romance, but it’s actually the perfect gift for 2021. Thanks to COVID-19, many people have had to put travel plans and adventures on hold, but what if there was a way to enjoy new experiences right from the safety of your living room? At this point, we’re all looking for an escape, which is why this is the perfect present for gamers, early adopters, sci-fi lovers and anyone else that loves to explore new worlds. One of the Top Tech Gifts of 2020, the Oculus Quest 2 VR Headset from Facebook is the ultimate VR Headset. The Quest 2 looks like something out of science fiction, and the headset provides incredibly immersive audio and visuals that bring hundreds of games and apps to life. For anyone that’s tired of watching the same old TV shows and streaming services, the Oculus Quest 2 VR Headset is exactly what you need.

Brooklinen Waffle Robe

During the Christmas holidays, the Brooklinen Super Plush robe was one of the most popular gifts featured on SPY. For Valentine’s Day, we love the Brooklinen Waffle Bath Robe, which is a little lighter and perfect for lazy days around the house. This luxurious bathrobe is a great gift for men and women alike. Made from 100% Turkish Cotton, the robe is lightweight and extra absorbent thanks to the unique waffle weave texture. These robes are super popular right now, so place an order sooner rather than later.

Red Roses

We know, Valentine’s Day roses are cliché, but red roses are synonymous with Valentine’s Day, and it would be sacrilegious not to include them here. This gorgeous bouquet is from The Bouqs Co, a trendy new online flower delivery service that can deliver them right to your door vase-less or in a vase of your choosing. You can order 12, 24 or 36 rose if you really want to go big. Keep in mind that roses are just one of many options, and it’s always a good idea to get creative with your floral arrangements. That being said, you can’t go wrong with one of the best Valentine’s Day gifts of all time.

addsfit Mini Massage Gun

What’s not to love about a mini massage gun? Aside from being small enough to carry around in a purse or backpack, this little guy really works. Not only is the addfit Mini Massage Gun easy to use, but your partner can also switch out the heads for a different type of massage when they want. If your partner is a fitness fanatic and is constantly rolling out after workouts or is complaining about sore muscles (especially if they work from home and hunch over a laptop all day long), a mini massage gun is one of the best gifts for Valentine’s Day 2021. It’s pricey enough to show you put in the effort, but not so expensive that you have to break the bank.

Moët & Chandon Rosé Champagne

If Valentine’s Day feels like a chore, then you’re doing it wrong. More than anything, Valentine’s Day is supposed to be a celebration of love and relationships. And nothing puts you in the mood to celebrate quite like a bottle of champagne. Mark the occasion with a bottle of seductive and sweet Moët & Chandon Rosé Impérial Champagne. Here in Brooklyn, a lot of couples will be spending Valentine’s Day 2021 at home instead of at a fancy restaurant, but they can still raise a glass and celebrate.

Fenty Glow Trio Face, Lip and Body Set

While make-up is a very personal thing, if you know what your S.O. likes, this lip and body set from Fenty could be a real winner. The set comes with a Diamond Bomb highlighter, a Cheeks Out cream blush and a Glass Bomb lip gloss in Fenty’s ever-popular universal rose nude shade. It’s a stellar Valentine’s Day gift, but don’t take our word for it. Right now, the limited-edition set has a 4.6/5-star rating after 119 reviews on Fenty’s site. What’s more, it’s currently 50% off, making it an even better purchase for V-Day.

Sexy Lingerie for Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is all about romantic love, and we believe that a fulfilling sex life is an important part of a healthy relationship. Sexy lingerie is a fun and sexy Valentine’s Day gift, whether you buy it to wear yourself and surprise your partner or buy it for them to wear when date night is finally over.

There are plenty of great places to buy lingerie online, but if you’re buying lingerie for your partner to wear, be sure that you know their size. This babydoll set is the ultimate V-day look. It comes with a T-back babydoll top made with eyelash lace and a matching thong. The bra cups are unlined and produce a dramatic lift with fully adjustable straps — and the G-string is ultra-low rise with a cotton gusset.

Seven 'Til Midnight Bed of Roses Babydoll Set


If red lingerie or baby dolls just aren’t her style, then there are plenty of other fun options to choose from — sexy bodysuits, matching bra and panty sets or BDSM-inspired garter belts.

Wine Club Subscription

Wine is definitely one of the most romantic adult beverages, and gifting a wine club subscription will give your partners new bottles to sip each month for the whole year! Firstleaf is one of my favorite wine clubs, they ship you a flexible box of wine bottles every 4-8 weeks from all over the world. You rank the ones you like, and their algorithms make new picks based on that so each box is more tailored to your taste. If you’re dating a wine lover, this gift is a no-brainer.

Ballon Blanc Moisturizing Sheet Face Masks

Giving your loved one a chance for self-care is one of the best gifts you can give them. This pack of six Ballon Blanc sheet masks is infused with moisturizing, therapeutic ingredients like aloe, tea tree, avocado, vitamin, honey and egg whites. They’re made of eco-friendly tencel-cupra sheets so your spa Valentine’s spa day isn’t coming at the expense of the planet, and all the masks are formulated to not just moisturize but calm the skin, care for your pores and improve elasticity.

Hydro Flask Water Bottle

This pink Hydro Flask is a low-key nod to Valentine’s Day and a practical gift for your partner that shows how much you care about them and their hydration. Hydro Flask makes vacuum-insulated water bottles that keep warm drinks warm and cold drinks cold for days at a time, and this one has a slip-free powder coating on the outside so you get a firm grip to sip with. It’s also BPA-free, made of stainless steel and this slim design fits in most car cup holders.

Courant Catch:3 Charging Tray

We’re big fans of the Courant Catch:3 charging tray, which we named one of the best Christmas gifts of 2020. This wireless charging pad is covered in an attractive pebble-grain leather and includes a catch-all space for keys, coins, wallets, watches and other accessories. Inside are multiple wireless chargers, so at the end of the day you can throw down your smartphone and smartwatch and wake up to fully charged devices. Choose the dusty rose-colored leather and you have one of the best gifts for her, or opt for the classic black leather for him. As an added touch, you can have your partner’s initials engraved onto the leather.

Mejuri Necklace

Jewelry is another classic Valentine’s Day gift idea, and Mejuri is one of our favorite brands for affordable gifts for women. They make delicate, elegant pieces with a wide variety of materials including gold, silver, gemstones, diamonds and more. This Dot Necklace is beautiful and made to be layered with other pieces for an elevated look. You don’t have to spend $500 on jewelry for Valentine’s Day so long as you find a piece that’s unique and well-suited to her style.

Samsonite Omni Hardbody Spinner Suitcase

Do you have a sweetheart that loves to travel? Whether your travel plans are on hold due to COVID or you’re looking at Airbnbs in the Caribbean, you’re going to need good luggage, and that’s why a high-quality hardbody spinner suitcase is always a welcome gift. Samsonite is probably the most trusted luggage brand in the world, and the Omni spinner-style suitcase is an affordable piece of luggage that will fit securely in most overhead bins. Pick a fun color and your recipient will be ready to travel in style at a moment’s notice.

Nostalgia Chocolate Fondue Fountain

There are few things in life more satisfying than a chocolate fondue fountain. While you might assume that these party accessories are expensive or complicated pieces of machinery, you can actually buy a top-rated fondue fountain for just $25. Seriously, if your gal or guy loves chocolate, then we dare you to find a better Valentine’s Day gift under $100. Nostalgia makes a variety of fondue fountains. The 24-ounce Chocolate Fountain is perfect for couples and small families, while the 2-pound Retro Chocolate Fondue Fountain is better for large groups and parties. All you need is a little melting chocolate and you have everything you need for a delicious dessert.

Beats Solo Pro Wireless Headphones

If you live together, you both should own noise-cancelling headphones. This can help tune out WFH conference calls, video games, music, TV or whatever noise you or your partner is making. Trust us — this is a relationship game-changer, and Beats headphones also happen to have a sexy design and noise-cancelling capabilities. They also have a “Transparency” mode that filters in environmental and ambient noise in case your partner tries to get your attention or you’re actually curious about that podcast they’re listening to. Because they come in a wide range of colors, these headphones are some of the best Valentine’s Day gifts for men and women alike.

Milk Bar – The Double Truffle Gift Box

Milk Bar is the uber-trendy New York City bakery chain that’s exploding in popularity now that it offers nationwide delivery. Milk Bar has several signature desserts (the Birthday Cake is insanely good), but our personal favorites are the brand’s chocolate and birthday cake truffles. These delicious truffles have the texture of cake-pops, and they will change your life. Really, we would recommend everything from the Milk Bar online store, but for Valentine’s Day, you can’t go wrong with these decadent Milk Bar Truffles. Each gift box comes with one dozen B’Day Truffles and one dozen Chocolate B’Day Truffles.

The Giant Teddy Bear is also a classic Valentine’s Day treat, and what’s more cuddly than a panda? It’s ultra-soft, ultra-huggable and is designed to not shed all over your girlfriend’s apartment. Give this Giant Panda Teddy a new home and your partner a big ol’ smile with this adorable present.

Ekouaer Pajamas Set

We love this two-piece pajama set for women as a Valentine’s Day present. You can choose from dozens of colors to suit her style, and this set comes in both small and plus-sizes. The pajamas themselves are made from a silky soft fabric with enough stretch to stay comfortable lounging on the couch or in bed.

Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Eau de Parfum

If your partner wears perfume (ask if you’re not sure), this is a great romantic pick for Valentine’s Day. It’s a warm floral scent that’s as timeless as Coco Chanel herself. It’s a sexy fragrance, and there aren’t many other ways to describe it. This particular perfume has hundreds of 5-star reviews for its quality. Gift this to a glamorous girlfriend who loves to get dressed up, and can’t wait for your first dinner out post-quarantine.

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. It’s 2021 and most of us are working from home. Ditch the lace-ups already. Cozy is in.

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. These slippers are seriously comfortable and come in a bunch of fun colors, which makes them the perfect Valentine’s Day gift idea for 2021.

Man Crates Jerky Heart Gift Box

We first wrote about the Man Crates Jerky Heart ahead of Valentine’s Day 2020, and we still think it’s one of the best Valentine’s Day gifts for men (and for carnivores of all genders, for that matter). Man Crates says that its creation is a “wholly-savory, hyper-sensual meat surprise of affection and flavor,” and it’s a clever twist on the classic box of chocolates. Inside you’ll find 10 delicious jerky bits with tasty flavors.

Adubor 100% Mulberry Silk Pillowcase

Guys may not be aware of this, but women know that one of the biggest trends in the beauty world is the rise of silk pillowcases. This isn’t just a luxury item, but rather an important accessory for keeping your skin and hair looking its best. Regular pillowcases absorb a lot of bacteria and sweat. In addition, the friction they create is terrible for your hair and skin, which is why many women are upgrading to silk pillowcases for their beauty sleep. Impress your beau with this luxurious silk pillowcase for Valentine’s Day 2021. While many popular silk pillowcases are actually made from polyester, the Adubor pillowcase is made with 100% mulberry silk.

Fujifilm Instax Mini 11 Instant Camera

When in doubt, buy an instant camera. While it may seem like a novelty, you’ll both soon realize how useful and fun these small cameras are. There is something wonderfully nostalgic about snapping a photo and having it print right then and there. From memorializing special dates to capturing candid moments, this little instant camera from Fujifilm will quickly become a household favorite.

Whiskey Stones Gift Set

This On the Rocks Set is the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for your boyfriend, husband, girlfriend, wife or partner who prefers their nightcap on the rocks. It comes with two classy whiskey glasses and four granite drink chilling rocks gathered from New England beaches. The granite discs are great for chilling aged spirits like whiskey or bourbon because they won’t dilute the flavor like ice does. Your whiskey lover will appreciate that fact, and they will feel the love with this gift.

Looking for bonus points? Pick up a bottle of top-shelf bourbon or whiskey to go along with your present.

This is a vibrator built for couples rather than solo play. It gives clitoral stimulation and stays in place hands-free so you’re able to focus on other matters while it does its thing. Eva is waterproof, made of medical-grade silicone and has a three-speed motor so you and your partner can pick the pace that works for you. This small but powerful vibrator is one of our favorite couple’s sex toys, and it’s also one of the most popular sex gifts we’ve found yet.

Dior Sauvage Eau de Toilette

Ladies and gentlemen, grab your male partner something delicious you can enjoy all year long with this classic Dior cologne, which has stellar reviews and a sleek AF bottle. It’s got an earthy and woody scent with notes of bergamot, pepper and amberwood. The luxurious bottle will look handsome on the bathroom counter and the scent will layer well on top of the most common “manly” scents out there. Cologne is one of the best Valentine’s Day gifts for men, and you can also go with a cologne gift set if you want to give your man a chance to try a new scent before committing.

Jabra Elite Active 75t True Wireless Earbuds

We’re big fans of Jabra’s wireless earbuds here at SPY. In the past, we’ve called the 75t the best noise-canceling earbuds and one of the best tech gifts to give in 2020. Which is to say, these won’t disappoint. While there’s a time and place for Airpods, it isn’t Valentine’s Day. The Jabra 75t boasts 24 hours of battery life and an IP57 rating, which means sweat and even rain are no match for them. If your partner needs a new pair of buds for work calls, workouts or travel, these are the wireless earbuds to get. Plus, they work just as great for iPhone as they do for Android users. So regardless of what phone your partner has, these will get the job done. And if they’re the audiophile type, your partner can customize their listening experience through Jabra’s accompanying app.

Anniversary Constellation Map

This is a really cute idea, and an aesthetically-pleasing poster to hang in your place that commemorates your first date, your wedding or another romantic event in your life. The graphic will include the stars’ constellation that was above a specific location at a specific time, so you can truly see if your love was “written in the stars” as they say. Cheesy? Sure, which makes it perfect for Valentine’s Day.

 “I Cerealsly Love You” Engraved Spoon

Some people might tell you that grown men shouldn’t be eating cereal, but we believe it’s better to be with a cereal eater than with a serial cheater. And if your cereal eater appreciates good puns, and we’re guessing they do, then they’re sure to love this engraved spoon.

This is a question card game for couples that comes from an Emmy award-winning documentary experience about couples, communication and depth in relationships.

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 over 10,000 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.

Shinola Watches

Shinola is an up-and-coming luxury design brand started in 2011, and the company makes some of our favorite watches for men and women. Shinola operates an in-house watch and leather factory in Detroit using time-honored Swiss watchmaking techniques, and the company makes unpretentious timepieces right here in the USA.

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?

Weighted Blankets

For anyone that loves to snuggle up under a cozy blanket, this is the perfect present for pretty much any occasion. This Valentine’s Day, give your snuggle buddy a weighted blanket designed to simply melt away the stress of this dark winter season. We generally recommend two different weighted blankets to our readers. First, there’s the Quility Cotton Weighted Blanket, which is available via Amazon Prime. However, if you’re willing to spend a little more, we also love the luxury weighted blankets from Bearaby. While the latter option is more expensive, they’re also machine washable, super soft to the touch and come in a variety of warm colors.

diptyque Baies Scented Candle

Shopping for a candle lover? Then you’ll want too order something from diptyque, the extremely popular Parisian candle company. The brand has lots of scented candles to choose from, but we recommend the Baies Scented Candle, which features a subtle bouquet of roses and blackcurrant leaves.

Harry’s Travel Shaving Set + Dopp Kit

A good dopp kit has long been one of our top Valentine’s Day gifts for him, and this year you can up the ante by purchasing this affordable travel shaving set and dopp kit combo. Harry’s is one of our favorite shaving brands (and one of our favorite grooming brands, period). When you’re not traveling, the high-quality dopp kit will keep all of his toiletries organized in the bathroom. And the next time you do take a trip, he can bring along his travel-sized body wash, shampoo and face wash. In addition, he’ll receive Harry’s award-winning Truman razor. Basically, it’s three gift ideas in one, a great value for a $35 set.

Long Distance Touch Bracelet Set 

In a long-distance relationship? I know how tough it can be to be apart from your loved one on this day, and all days for that matter. Perhaps this gift will make it a little easier. These light up touch bracelets alert your love when you want to send them a “touch” through light and vibration. They’re made of waterproof silicone so wherever, whenever you can let them know you’re thinking of them. They connect to an app where you can send private text messages and are available in a whole bunch of colors.

Our Favorite Stuffed Sloth

Our previous gift idea was very much adults-only, but this cute stuffed sloth is much more wholesome — although it is rated PG for light swearing. We’ve recommended this little guy as a Valentine’s Day gift before and it’s always been a huge hit among SPY readers.

Crepe Griddle Set

Who doesn’t love a nice pile of crepes on a Sunday morning? Whether you prefer them with Nutella, strawberries, bananas or with a little butter — they’re the perfect breakfast in bed food. You want to make sure you make them right, and to do that you’ll need this set. It comes with a flat, wide crepe griddle, a cream spreader for getting that even thin texture, and a spatula for flipping. Gift your love the ability to make delicious treats whenever they want and hopefully you’ll reap the benefits with a delicious breakfast.
