With Valentine’s Day only three weeks away (wasn’t it just Christmas?!) I wanted share some gift ideas that can be tailored for any budget. So whether your strapped for cash or rolling in dough, if you’re buying for your bff or need an idea to tell your sweetheart, check out this gift guide and let me know what gift you’d like to open up on Valentine’s Day this year! Links in this Valentine’s Day gift guide post contain affiliates, all opinions are my own.
Face Mask vs. Rodan + Fields
If you’re looking for a fun Valentine’s Day (or Galentine’s Day, any Parks & Rec fans out there?) gift for your bff then picking up a few fun face masks is definitely a budget-friendly way to say treat yo’self! This fun unicorn face mask will lave you with a magical glow, or if you’re looking for something more sophisticated you can pick up this five pack of intense hydration masks to recover from the winter dryness.
If you’re looking for something to pass along to your sweetheart for a subtle gifting hint, then check out Rodan + Fields. I’ve been using their products for a year now and I only wish I’d started using them sooner. If you’re not quite sure where to start or you’re not ready to commit to a full skincare regimen, then you can’t go wrong with ordering the Lash Boost, Active Hydration Serum, or the Hydration Bright Eye Complex–all products that I use and love. I don’t sell it by any means, but if you’d like my contact then feel free to message me!
Spa Treatment vs. Spa Day
As a busy mom I know a gift certificate for a manicure, pedicure, massage, or facial is always appreciated (especially if it’s accompanied with an offer of babysitting!), but if the budget allows a spa day is definitely a way to splurge for Valentine’s Day. You could even consider getting some couples treatments to enjoy with your Valentine.
The Night Sky vs. Below the Boat
Sentimental gifts are always a good bet for Valentine’s Day and thankfully there are tons of companies these days that are making easier than ever to give a thoughtful and meaningful gift. On the more budget-friendly side (but still totally thoughtful) is The Night Sky. I actually bought one of these star maps for my husband for Christmas and loved the way that it turned out. All you have to do is enter in your location and the date that you want memorialized and they create a personalized star map for you!
Another sentimental gift that you could give to commemorate a special day or place comes to you from Below the Boat; this incredible company has been on my wish list for awhile. They create gorgeous bathymetric charts (like underwater topographic maps) that are laser cut into wood and are definitely in the splurge category of gifts. With over 50 locations to choose from all over the world, you’re sure to find a chart that means something to you and your sweetheart.
Cordless vacuum vs. robotic vacuum
I know what you’re thinking–“a vacuum for Valentine’s Day?!”–but just hear me out. I actually received a lightweight cordless vacuum for Mother’s Day last year (at my request) and it was one of my favorite gifts all year. Why? Because it is so easy to use instead of lugging out my heavy, clunky, old vacuum and even my kids can easily clean up with it, making my mom life much simpler. We got ours on sale at Costco for a great deal and I’ve been very impressed with it’s cleaning ability.
If you’re looking to make your cleaning situation a little easier and you have some more money in the budget, that hint to your honey about a robotic vacuum. We ordered a bObsweep during a pre-black Friday sale last year and love it. We run it just about every night and it really works well! Plus, since it’s keeping the floor so much cleaner I don’t have to wash the floor as often either, win-win.
Dinner out vs. Meal delivery
I love a nice dinner out with my husband as much as the next gal, but if you can afford it you might want to hint to your sweetheart that momma would love a break more than just one night. With so many different meal subscription boxes available there is a great option out there for any taste bud or budget. And if you’re not the best cook in the world than this could serve as a great gift idea for your significant other as well!
PinkBlush vs. Stitch Fix
It’s no surprise that I love PinkBlush clothing–from the quality to the style to the comfort of their pieces, you just can’t go wrong. If picking out a piece of clothing for someone’s Valentine’s Day gift is a little intimidating you can easily purchase a gift card in any amount from $25-$500 on their website. Now your hubby won’t have to awkwardly ask you what size you wear… we all know that can lead down a slippery slope.
Although I’ve never tried Stich Fix myself the idea is definitely appealing and I think that this fun clothing subscription service where a stylist creates a fix for you each month (or more or less frequently depending on what you choose) would be a great Valentine’s Day present. Gift Cards can be purchased for any amount from $20-$1000 on their website so this really could be a splurge gift. Plus, who doesn’t like the idea of “shopping” from the convenience of your own home?
Rocksbox vs. Everly Rings
Aww, Rocksbox; I’ve talked about them many times before and I’ll continue to do so because it’s so fun getting a little bit of bling in your mail box every month! For a $21 styling fee you get unlimited jewelry rental for a month that is hand selected for you based off your style profile (think of it as the jewelry version of Stitch Fix). The fee will get applied to any pieces you choose to keep from your current set! Perfect for the friend who’s a fashion blogger or the sister who is way too picky to shop for, I highly recommend Rocksbox. Use code JUSTINEBFF66 to get one month free!
If you’re looking for a special piece of jewelry that’s a little more pricey but still budget-friendly, check out Everly Rings. They create diamond simulant bands in a variety of styles so there’s sure to be something that you (or anyone on your Valentine list) will love.
