Valentine’s Day is almost here, and while we’d never turn down flowers and chocolate, we believe the best gifts are those that have a lot of thought and meaning behind them. If you’re stumped on what to get your sweetheart this year, here’s our list of six Valentine’s Day gift ideas anyone in your life would be happy to receive.   

1.    Coordinates Wall Print

Every relationship has a special spot or meaningful location. Use the map coordinates from the state and city where you met, your first date, or your wedding venue to create this custom piece that doubles as trendy wall décor for your home.

2.    Date Night Bucket List Kit

The experts say the key to a lasting relationship is never to stop dating—but we know the typical dinner and a movie can get old pretty quickly. This date night bucket list kit features a variety of fun prompts, so you’ll never run out of date night ideas again. If your boyfriend is running out of date night plans, this is a great Valentine's Day gift idea for him.

3.    Monthly Bouquet Subscription

Who says Valentine’s Day gifts are only reserved for February 14th? Make this year one to remember, and gift your loved one a flower subscription service. If your girlfriend always enjoys the bouquet that only lasts for a few weeks, this is an especially great Valentine's Day gift idea for her. Services like BloomsyBox allow you to deliver bouquets to their doorstep every month—making it easy to show you care all year long.  

4.    Favorite Perfume or Cologne

Sometimes it’s best not to reinvent the wheel. A great Valentine's Day gift idea for men and women, peruse your significant other’s perfume or cologne collection to see which scent is running low. Chances are, it’s a favorite and a gift that they’ll appreciate. Bonus Tip: Department stores like Macy’s will even engrave the bottle to make it extra special.

5.    Customized Jewelry

Trust us—you can’t go wrong with jewelry. However, if you want to take this traditional gift to the next level, get a beautiful piece personalized. From personalized bracelets to necklaces, online marketplaces like Etsy have endless options that will bring a smile to anyone’s face.

6.    An Experience

Are you shopping for someone who already has everything? Think outside the box for  Valentine’s Day gift ideas that are an experience instead of something tangible.
