Best Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas

Byrdie / Marcus Millan

Okay, so it may be a little bit of a made-up holiday, but there’s no denying that, if nothing else, February 14 is a great time to celebrate love itself. Maybe that means a special date night with a romantic partner. Maybe that means a girls’ night in with your besties. Or maybe it means a dedicated self-care moment, because self love is just as important. No matter the scenario, we still think it’s a great opportunity to gift your loved one—or yourself—something extra special. A few tips when it comes to thinking about Valentine’s Day gift ideas: While there’s definitely nothing wrong with the classic flowers and candy, think outside the (chocolate) box. Food, fashion, beauty, home—there are great options to choose from across all of the above categories. Consider your relationship with the giftee, too. There are plenty of smaller (yet still meaningful) items that are great for your BFF, as well as more splurge-worthy picks for your S.O.

Maison Margiela Replica Bubble Bath

maison-margiela-replica-bubble-bath

Sephora

A unique idea for any bath-lover, this fragrance smells exactly like the name suggests. Notes of soap (it sounds weird, but it works) blend beautifully with rose, white milk, and coconut milk, making for a clean, relaxing, and comforting end result.

What Our Testers Say

“Bubble Bath really makes you feel like you’re taking a long soak in a hot bath, with castles of tiny bubbles rising up around you from all sides. It’s not just the bath, though—it’s the steamy, humid bathroom, damp tile, warm skin, and wet hair. The musk, patchouli, and coconut at the base create a super soft, plush note that feels like wrapping yourself in a warm hotel towel after a long, hot bubble bath. It’s the whole fantasy. It’s more than just smelling it—you can feel it.”—Tynan Sinks, Product Tester

Aritzia Melina Pant

What Our Testers Say

“These pants genuinely live up to the hype. It took some trial and error to find the right fit, but as the saying goes, the best things in life are worth waiting for. Between the smooth-to-the-touch vegan leather, the sleek aesthetic, and comfortable feel, The Melina Pant stands out against other options.”—Caitlyn Martyn, Byrdie Writer

PH5 HydraKNIT Legging

ph5-hydraknit-legging

PH5

These combine two of our favorite gift giving categories: PJs and skincare. The unique fabric is infused with hydrating hyaluronic acid (and lasts for up to 40 washes), imparting said hydration into your skin while you wear them. Brilliant.

Price at time of publish: $155

What Our Testers Say

“My skin was slightly dry the next day, but there wasn't any of the usual irritation or itchiness. Since my skin gets so dry, leggings tend to be pretty irritating to wear for too long, but these weren't uncomfortable in any way. While they kept my skin from getting too itchy and irritated, I found they worked best with my moisturizers and oils. So I'll definitely keep these on hand to keep away the winter dryness.”—Chinea Rodriguez, Product Tester

Golde Matcha Turmeric Latte
