If you love Valentine’s Day like me, you probably look forward to planning a special date for your significant other, and no Valentine’s Day celebration is complete without a few gifts for your bae.
Chocolates and flower bouquets are classic options, but this year, why not spring for something you can enjoy together? These 15 couple gifts are perfect for you and your Valentine to use together, both on February 14 and beyond!
1. A really, really big blanket
I don’t know about you, but in my house, we have two separate throw blankets on the couch because they’re simply not big enough for two people (and our dog) to share. However, if you actually want to cuddle up with that special someone on Valentine’s Day, the Big Blanket will keep you both toasty warm—with room to spare! These extra-large blankets are 10 by 10 feet, making them a must-have for cozy nights on the couch.
2. A couple’s journal with daily writing prompts
Get to know your significant other a little deeper with this fun couple’s journal. Our Q&A a Day includes short, sweet daily prompts—things like “Where would you like to travel with your partner?” and “What does your partner's laugh sound like?”—as well as space for you and your boo to write answers. The journal includes three years worth of prompts, so it's a cute activity you can enjoy for a long time.
3. A silly game to play on the toilet
For couples that aren't into sappy romantic gestures, Toilet Tag is sure to give you a good laugh! This book is designed to be kept in the bathroom, and it includes a variety of games for couples to play while you’re doing your business. The games force you to reveal things about your past, answer hypothetical situations, and even get creative, drawing and writing poems.
4. A full date night—in a box!
Running low on date night ideas? Let Date Night in a Box come to the rescue. This unique subscription box delivers fully curated dates to your door on a monthly basis—each delivery includes interactive activities, accessories to set the mood, snacks and/or drink mixers, a full dinner menu, and more. A few months of this romantic subscription service could be just what you and your partner need if you struggle to find time for dates.
5. A kit that lets you make a sculpture of your hands
Get a little messy on Valentine’s Day with this plaster casting kit. Basically, you’ll create a mold of your two hands, then fill it with white cement to create a one-of-a-kind keepsake. Not only will this kit help create a memento that you can cherish for years to come, but it’s also a fun, hands-on activity to do together on Valentine’s Day.
6. A pair of cute coffee mugs
If you and your partner love to spend lazy mornings drinking coffee together, these mugs would be the perfect Valentine’s Day gift. The ceramic cups feature a cute design of a boy and girl blowing heart-shaped bubbles at each other, and reviewers say the set makes for a sweet, memorable gift.
7. Top-rated massage oil to help you unwind
What’s more relaxing than lighting a few candles and getting a massage from your partner after a long week? Arguably nothing! This Sensual Massage Oil will make your next at-home spa treatment that much more enjoyable, as it smells like lavender and contains a mixture of oils and natural ingredients to soothe the skin.
8. A gaming system for a little bit of friendly competition
The Nintendo Switch is a must-have for couples that like to game together. You can either play solo on the Switch’s portable screen or hook it up to the TV and disconnect the controllers to go head to head. Some must-have games include Mario Kart and Super Smash Bros Ultimate—both of which will have you demanding rematches all night long.
9. A cookbook full of recipes for two
Instead of going out to dinner on Valentine’s Day, why not stay in and cook a delicious homemade meal? The Complete Cooking for Two Cookbook is brimming with delicious recipes for two, including everything from hearty Italian soups to steak dinners. Don’t forget to save room for dessert, as there are a variety of sweet treats to choose from, as well, including brownies, cookies, mug cakes, and more.
10. A sweet heart-shaped picnic basket
If you live somewhere with mild weather, you might even be able to plan a Valentine’s Day picnic (no such luck up here in New England). This heart-shaped picnic basket includes everything you need to put on a romantic meal outdoors, including porcelain plates, wine glasses and stainless steel flatware, as well as wine and cheese accessories. Bon appetit!
11. Conversation cards to help you learn new things about each other
Do you ever run out of things to talk about with your significant other? It’s pretty common if you’ve been together for a long time, but you can spark up new, exciting conversations with the help of Uncommon Questions. The box includes 200 unique conversation starters that will help to bring you closer and make it a Valentine’s Day to remember—so go ahead, toss a few in your purse to bring to dinner.
12. A kit to grow cute miniature bonsai trees
For those looking for a unique couples activity, growing a bonsai tree certainly fits the bill. This Bonsai Starter Kit includes everything you need to grow four variations of bonsai trees—growing pots, soil discs, plant markers, clippers, and more. Bonsai growing isn’t for the faint of heart, but it’s a wonderful exercise in patience and will make a fun activity to do as a couple.
13. A set of Champagne flutes for classic romance
If you don’t already have a set of Champagne flutes, they’re a must-have for Valentine’s Day. This particular set of six crystal glasses sports a modern silhouette, and they can even be put in the dishwasher for easy cleaning. Grab a bottle of Champagne and some chocolate-covered strawberries, and you have the makings of a lovely evening.
14. A fun board game for two people
You don’t need a big group of people to play board games—in fact, 7 Wonders Duel is a top-rated game for two people. The object of the game is to build a city and guide it through three “ages” while outsmarting your opponent. It’s the perfect post-Valentine’s Day dinner activity!
15. A sleeping bag spacious enough for two
More adventurous couples might relish the opportunity to cuddle up together under the stars, in which case this double sleeping bag is the ultimate Valentine’s Day gift. It’s spacious enough for two people, and it’s warm, cozy, and waterproof—ideal for camping, hiking, or just a romantic night star gazing in your backyard.
