Best Valentines Day Gifts for Her

Byrdie / David Hattan

No matter whether she’s your girlfriend of two weeks or wife of 20 years, she definitely deserves a Valentine’s Day gift. (And in related news, it’s also probably not a bad idea to get your mom and sister a little something, too.) That being said—hot tip alert—you do want to tailor your gift-giving based on how long you’ve been together. A crazy expensive piece of jewelry may feel a little out of place for a new relationship. The good news? There’s no shortage of great V-day gifts, from the classic categories like yes, jewelry and lingerie, to awesome skincare and beauty finds to cool fashion pieces and so much more. Another important tip: If you are going to go the route of any kind of clothing, be sure to do some recon and determine her size ahead of time. And while many of these items may be geared toward women, there are plenty out there that are gender-neutral, great choices for anyone and everyone, no matter how they identify. 

You’ll find Byrdie-approved candy (like the Prada perfume by that name) plus artisanal chocolates, and flowers from the only women-owned floral e-commerce brand—as well as more niche, items like Swarovski crystal ear seeds and infrared sauna blankets in our editor-curated list of best Valentine’s Day gifts for her.

Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Glow Glide Face Architect Highlighter

Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Glow Glide Face Architect Highlighter

Charlotte Tilbury

There are no chunky flecks of garish glitter to be found in this powder highlighter. Just a creamy formula that contains pressed pearls and touts a unique technology that diffuses light in the most gorgeous, natural, lit-from-within way possible.

Price at time of publish: $48

What Our Testers Say

“After using a fan brush to apply this highlighter to the high points of my face (cheekbones, brow bone, nose bridge, and cupid’s bow), I noticed that I didn’t have a sparkly complexion like with other highlighter formulas, but rather a reflective radiance that made my skin look flawless (bye-bye, pores), bright, and dewy, even while I’m battling winter dullness.” —Isabella Sarlija, Product Tester

Beaubble x Elsa Hosk Lip Contour Wand

Beaubble x Elsa Hosk Lip Contour Wand

Beaubble

You may have seen this wand all-over TikTok; it’s gone viral for leaving lips looking pillowy and plumped in seconds. Believe the hype: It works beautifully to make your pout look more voluminous, and has staying power, just like a regular lip liner.

Price at time of publish: $34

What Our Editors Say

“I found the most natural results by using it like a traditional lip liner on my top lip and then slightly outside my natural lip line on the bottom, again emphasizing that middle section. That way, my lips look deliciously plump but without any obvious lines. My makeup bag just gained yet another lip product, considering I'm obsessed with the results.” —Bella Cacciatore, Byrdie News Editor

Payot Paris Cleansing Micellar Milk

Payot Paris Cleansing Micellar Milk

Payot Paris

A face wash may not seem special enough to gift, but this is no ordinary face wash. It combines the beauty of micellar water (gentle, great for makeup remover, ideal for sensitive skin), yet is also nice and creamy and moisturizing, just like a milk cleanser. The best of both worlds, combined in one pretty bottle.

Price at time of publish: $23

What Our Editors Say

“This formula lived up to its intriguing name and more. I already love micellar water for nighttime cleansing, but add in a creamy texture that’s not too thick, not too watery, and you’ve got yourself a micellar goldilocks situation. The formula’s ability to remove my eye makeup with only one cleanse is what really sold me, but I love that I can still follow it up with a second face wash without feeling like I’ve stripped my skin.” —Madeline Hirsch, Byrdie News Director

Fenty Beauty Eaze Drop’lit All-Over Glow Enhancer

Fenty Beauty Eaze Drop’lit All-Over Glow Enhancer

Saje Aroma Om Cool Mist Diffuser

Saje Aroma Om Cool Mist Diffuser

Saje

It’s hard to choose what we like best about this diffuser—the fact that it’s heat-free and emits a cool mist that better preserves the integrity of essential oils, or the chic aesthetic. Happily, there’s no need to choose.

Price at time of publish: $92

Nuele Hydrating Hair Mask

Nuele Hydrating Hair Mask

A temperature-stable makeup bag: File that one under ‘why didn’t we think of that?’ The first-of-its-kind, this bag touts a special kind of insulation so that you never have to worry about melted cream eyeshadow again.

These thigh highs from Bad girl RiRi's lingerie brand are straight sexy. We love the addition of lace detailing that help to elevate these to sky high levels. Do note that you will need garters to attach to underwear or boy shorts, as they do not stay up on their own.

Price at time of publish: $33

Heat Healer Infrared Sauna Blanket

Adding a whole sauna to your house may not be a realistic option, but keeping this blanket on hand is way more doable.

Price at time of publish: $478

What Our Editors Say

“I’m a huge fan of the Heat Healer Infrared Sauna Blanket brings me comfort on chilly nights and blah winter days. You can adjust the heat settings according to your preferences—as there are days when I don’t want to emerge dripping wet with sweat, but just nicely toasted and with relaxed muscles.

This is definitely a treat that’s worth the investment.” —Jill Di Donato, Byrdie Senior Commerce Editor
