Whether you’re looking for the perfect gift for the romantic love in your life or wanting to show your best girlfriends how much you care, we’re sure you’ll find the ultimate token of affection on this list of Valentine’s Day gifts for her. We’ve got you covered with options that will thrill without breaking your budget.
10 Valentine’s Day Gifts for Her
1. Giving comfort and giving back
The BeYOUtiful Foundation makes it easy to give your Valentine the gift of comfort with their Beyoutiful Pullover Hoodie ($45, also available in white) while giving back to a good cause. BeYOUtiful was created to help support strong women of all ages as they defy the odds to fight cancer, providing resources whenever they’re in need. With 100% of profits from online sales going back to the foundation, this is a gift that keeps on giving.
2. Bangles for your boo
If you aren’t a natural wordsmith, expressing something sweet to your sweetie can be a challenge. But an inscribed bracelet can step in and do the work for you. Even better, she’ll remember your thoughtful gift every time she slips that bangle over her wrist.
See Luckrly bangles for a collection of quality, inscribed bangles at a price point of about $25 each. Choose from simple but powerful messages like, “You are my sunshine,” to something more specific like, “Never forget that I love you. I hope you believe in yourself as much as I believe in you.” The inscriptions are on the inside of the bracelet — a feature I appreciate, because it feels more intimate and private. Plated with 316L stainless silver, these bracelets won’t tarnish, fade, or break down. They’re thick enough to feel substantial without being too clunky or bulky. No green stains on your skin or clothes, either! Luckrly bracelets are also nickel-free, which is ideal for sensitive skin.
3. The nudes you won’t be scared to send
There are some things in life you may never find, but with the Natural Nudes Ultimate Nude Lip Set by Too Faced ($32), you can cross “the perfect nude lipstick” off your list. With three highly pigmented colors that will last all day, she won’t have to think twice about what to put on her lips when she’s rushing out the door for work or getting ready for date night. The hydrating formula will keep lips plump and pouty from morning to night, and — dare we say — kissable.
4. Chill, but chic
You can’t really buy Valentine’s lingerie for someone else, but you can gift a luxurious robe. Whether it’s sitting around checking Instagram in the morning or chilling on a day off, a comfy robe can be a woman’s best friend. With three classic colors to choose from, including black, grey, and navy, this robe from Stars Above ($29.99) is a chic, no-frills option that fits anyone’s style, so you won’t have to hit the return line any time soon.
5. Refreshed face forward
Every once in a while, her skin just begs to be pampered. The I’m Rose Revitalizing Sleeping Mask by TONYMOLY ($15) is full of anti-inflammatory ingredients that banish the worries and puffiness from her face, helping her wake up looking vibrant and refreshed and ready to show the world who’s boss!
6. Sunnies for your sweet
Having an extra pair of sunglasses on hand never hurt anyone (or are we the only ones who keep losing them?). These heart-shaped sunglasses ($19) from Nordstrom’s BP brand are the perfect mix of sweet and stylish with a price that anyone can appreciate. Your Valentine will be reminded of just how much you care every time she snaps a daytime selfie.
7. Fresh faced in the morning
Face rollers have a lot of hype around them, with some claiming they’re a miracle product that can turn back the hands of time. We don’t know about that, but we can tell you that the De-Puffing Rose Quartz Face Roller by Mount Lai ($38) works wonders to temporarily banish puffiness, making her look like she’s had eight hours of sleep even if it was only five. We like to keep ours in the fridge for an even more dramatic effect and soothing sensation.
8. For the most kissable lips
Winter’s not done with us yet, and we have the dry lips to prove it. With a little help from the Lip Sleeping Mask by LANEIGE ($20), she can effortlessly kiss dry winter lips goodbye while she gets her beauty rest.
9. The perfect (makeup) bag
Organization is key to a morning makeup routine that gets you out the door on time, and this adorable makeup bag by Charlotte Tilbury ($20) is the perfect option to help keep it all together. Give this gift to your Valentine, and you’ll find yourself covered in as many kisses as the bag!
10. Lather with love
LUSH’s Almond Blossom Naked Shower Gel ($14.95) smells so good, it would have anyone singing in the shower. It’s a solid, creamy shower gel that is similar to a bar of soap, but without leaving skin feeling stripped and begging for moisture. This product actually uses no packaging, making it the perfect zero-waste gift for the eco-conscious women out there.
11. A gift for the nose
The Cleopatra Perfume Rollerball by Tocca ($27) is a gift truly fit for a queen. With key notes of grapefruit and cucumber, the scent is bold and beautiful, yet somehow manages to be comforting. One whiff of this and you’ll want to snuggle up closer.
