Valentine’s Day Gifts for Him and Her

Feb 7, 2018

Click items above to shop! 

As cheesy as this is, Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays! An excuse to get fresh flowers or a romantic date night? Sign me up! We’ve always loved celebrating the holiday everyone loves to hate ? Whether you’re celebrating Galentines or Valentines, or just looking for an excuse to splurge on yourself, I’ve rounded up a few gifts for girls and guys that anyone will love!

Pizza is my Soul Mate mug: $20

I can’t think of a better gift for a hilarious girlfriend or coworker!

Dry Shampoo Set: $32

For the girl who loves her dry shampoo (or the frequent traveler!)

Monogram Necklace: $58

This one is a budget-friendly dupe of my “J” necklace I wear every day!

Besties Book: $15

Indie artist Leah Goren illustrates many ways in which close friendships withstand the test of time, cross-country moves, failed romances, and silly arguments. The perfect Galentine’s gift for your best friend!

Heart PJ’s: $48

Because who doesn’t need more adorable PJ’s? I think I may order these for myself ?

Hanky Panky Set: $57

The most comfy undies in the cutest little heart-shaped gift set!

Rose Gold Carry-On Suitcase: $135

I’ve been seeing this rose gold suitcase everywhere and heard such good things! The rose gold makes it a perfectly fitting gift for V-Day, but is a color you’ll love year-round!

Teeny Hearts Neck Scarf: $39

I love this feminine scarf with teeny-tiny hearts! It’s festive but subtle enough to wear any time of the year! Also, if you love wearing scarfs, see how to wear a scarf multiple ways.

Cuyana Travel Bag Set: $110

My absolute FAVORITE things right now for travel–these Cuyana bags! They’re beautiful, high-quality, and have a gold monogram! I have the “ecru” color but they comes in lot’s of others as well. I love that they zip down really far, so it’s easy to find whatever you’re looking for without digging for days!

Rose Gold Wireless Earbuds: $129

I’ve been wanting a pair of wireless ear buds for awhile, and these rose gold ones are stunning and have great reviews! They’re water resistant and also have different sized buds so you can ensure the perfect fit for your ears!

Brickell mens skincare:

I came across the men’s skincare brand, Brickell, when I was looking to get Neal a few more skincare products. It’s a safe/non-toxic/natural line and Neal absolutely loves it! You can get it on Amazon! They have a full anti-aging set for $155, or you can buy their products separately! Neal especially loves their charcoal facewash and everyday anti-aging moisturizer. (Both are about $30!)

Cufflinks: $150

Every guy needs a classic pair of cufflinks, and I love these gold knots!

Crosley record player: $69

We love our Crosley record player and it makes the BEST gift for any music lover–guy or girl!

UE Portable Speaker: $99

Neal has one of these and the quality and level of sound that comes out of it is INSANE. (We have the slightly larger version for $199! We bring it everywhere with us!) This little version is even more compact and a total steal for $99.

Everlane Spring Jacket: $68 

If you didn’t know, one of my favorite brands, Everlane, has men’s stuff, too! I find that a lot of guys don’t have a nice in-between season jacket. (North Face fleeces do NOT count ?) and this one definitely fits the bill!

Personalized Flask: $13

If your guy is into whiskey–one of the best gifts you could get him is one of his favorite bottles and a flask to match! This one is from Etsy and is really affordable!

Craft Beer Glass Set: $48

On the flipside, if your guy is more of a craft brew nut, he’ll love a couple 6 packs of his favorite craft beer and some simple, personalized glasses to match. Neal loves the shape of these!

A nice (but not expensive) watch: $100+

One of Neal’s #1 recommendations for guy gifts is a nice, but not too expensive watch. There are so many classic watches out there right now that you can get for a couple hundred dollars. He really likes Timex, Jack Mason and Nixon brands!

Wireless Ear Buds: $129 

The same earbuds as above, but in black! He’ll love these for running outside and in the gym.

“Flyweight” Barbour Jacket: $229

Neal’s Tinford Barbour jacket was so popular over Christmas, that when I saw this super lightweight “flyweight” version, I knew it was a great one to include for spring! It’s insulated, too, so you’ll get the warmth, without the weight! (Making it great for fall, too!) It also comes in olive!

Ulio & Jack Solid Cologne: $24

The BEST BEST BEST budget-friendly gift ever! Solid cologne (so when you travel, it doesn’t spill, and you can’t really put TOO much on, like is so easy to do with normal cologne!) This is our friend Chris’ company, so we’ve tried all the scents and they are all amazing. “Explorer” is hands-down our favorite–seriously, it smells so good, sometimes I steal it too.

Cuyana Travel Bag Set: $110

Yes, okay, this is the same set as above too. They’re honestly the best travel bags ever–so if your guy is still using a ratty old gift with purchase dopp kit (or even worse, a ziplock bag)–he’ll feel like a whole new grown-up man with these. Plus, you can personalize them, too! They come in lot’s of guy-approved colors ?
