Another Valentine's Day is upon us, and while love doesn't really cost a thing, showering your loved one with a gift is a great way to say "I love you." Instead of running to your local convenience store at the last minute to purchase a box of chocolates and a Hallmark card, we've compiled a list of amazing gifts you can get online.
Below are 20 of the best Valentine's Day gifts for her of 2022, including the popular Kate Spade initial pendant necklace, our experts' favorite bath bombs and the coziest Ugg slippers. Also, please note that if something needs to ship, order it sooner rather than later, as shipping times may be delayed.
1. Kate Spade Pendant Necklace
If you want to give the classic Valentine's Day gift that is jewelry without spending a fortune, this Kate Spade pendant necklace is perfect. It can be dressed up or down and is personalized with the initial of their first name displayed in the pendant. This necklace has 890 rave reviews on Nordstrom and is a top seller with our readers, so people clearly love it. Not to mention, necklaces with initials on them are very much on-trend right now.
2. Minted Custom Puzzle
Last winter while most people were quarantined at home, puzzles became a hot commodity. Why? Well, what better activity is there to do at home by yourself, with a friend, or together as a family? If you're a couple that is into puzzles, consider getting creative and making your very own puzzle to complete this year for Valentine's Day. At Minted, you can use any picture and all designs come in 12, 60, or 252 pieces. If you're looking for more of an activity, I'd suggest the 252-piece option.
3. Bath Bombs
Give her the gift of relaxation with a set of deliciously scented, colorful bath bombs. Of all the ones we've tested at Reviewed, we found these from Amazon to be the best. They're fragrant without being overly so, and are made with natural ingredients. Even better? They'll moisturize your giftee's skin while they soak.
4. Dash Heart Mini Waffle Maker
If you're looking for an adorable Valentine's Day-themed gift that will be useful year-round, look no further than Dash's heart-shaped waffle maker. We tested the regular version of the mini waffle machine, and unless you're looking for a more intense and bigger waffle maker, we recommend it. This is the exact same as the one we tested, but it's shaped like a heart. It has more than 190,000 rave reviews, and it sells out quickly around the holiday, so don't hesitate to scoop one up while you can.
5. Ivation Foot Spa
If you want to give the gift of a spa day—without the trip to an actual spa—consider the Ivation Foot Spa Massager. It's the best foot spa we tested, and with over 3,100 rave reviews on Amazon, we aren't the only people who are obsessed with it. The device offers a spa-like experience at home with adjustable heating and massage features, and it was one of our top-selling gifts this past holiday season.
6. Ugg Slippers
Whether she's always been a homebody or she's been home more than usual this year, you can't go wrong with the gift of slippers—especially Ugg slippers, many of which are extremely trendy right now. We tested slippers recently and the Ugg Scuffette II Slipper took the top spot for the best slipper money can buy. We also recommend the Ugg Ansley Slipper as the best full coverage slipper and think the ultra popular Ugg Fluff Yeah Sandal Slipper is a great option for those looking for something celeb-approved.
- Get the Ugg Scuffette II Slipper from Nordstrom starting at $89.95
- Get the Ugg Ansley Water Resistant Slippers from Nordstrom for $99.95
- Get the Ugg Fluff Yeah Genuine Shearling Slingback Sandal from Nordstrom for $100
7. Sugarfina Candy
If you want to give the gift of candy, but don't want to go with the basic and traditional options available at most retailers and grocery stores, Sugarfina is a fantastic alternative. The candy company sells adorable boxes of gummies in fun, adorable shapes. For Valentine's Day, you can get the brand's "Sugar Lips," which come in cherry, watermelon and strawberry and are frosted with sweet and sour sugar for a Sour Patch Kids vibe.
8. Michael Kors Bag
"A new bag? No thanks," said no woman ever. If you want to impress her with a beautiful, multifunctional new bag, you can't get better than this 5-star crossbody bag from Michael Kors. It comes in two shades—soft pink or black—so she can match it to just about any outfit. It's perfect for shopping, running errands and even a fancy date night on the town.
9. Nordstrom Moonlight Pajamas
Pajamas are always a great gift for people who are always treating other people and rarely buy luxurious things for themselves. Nordstrom's Moonlight Pajamas are a great option if you're looking to treat someone to pajamas this Valentine's Day. Not only do they have a nearly 5-star rating from more than 1,700 reviews on the site, but I own and love them, as do a few other editors at Reviewed. They come in 15 prints and colors and are equal parts cozy and breathable.
10. Minted Photo Heart Frame
For the person who loves memories and hanging them on the wall, consider creating adorable custom photo art at Minted as a gift they can hang for all to see. If you fill the frame with photos of the two of you, along with other family members, it will make for a sweet and romantic gift they will truly appreciate for years to come.
11. Nordstrom Bliss Plush Robe
For Valentine's Day 2021, our favorite robe would make for a cozy gift. Just last month, we finished testing robes at Reviewed and dubbed Nordstrom's new Bliss Plush Robe the best. Our tested loved everything about it—the length, how warm it was, the material. If you're worried about a robe being too cliche of a gift, fear not. A super soft, luxurious robe would be a welcome addition to any at-home wardrobe.
12. Bouqs Flower Subscription
If you want to go the traditional gift route this Valentine's Day with a twist, consider a flower subscription service this year. If the person you're shopping for loves having fresh flowers at home, this gift is a bit more thoughtful than a one-time bouquet you picked up at a local grocery store. They'll get beautiful blooms—from red roses to whimsical wildflowers—delivered right to their doorstep throughout the year.
13. Always Pan
Just as our experts predicted, the Always Pan was once again one of the hottest gifts of the 2021 holiday season. The influencer-approved kitchen item is not only stylish, but it does the job of eight pieces of cookware. It's a fry pan, saute pan, steamer, skillet, saucier, saucepan and non-stick pan, and even has a spatula and spoon rest. If you're shopping for someone who loves to cook—especially if you love to cook together—this gadget could certainly be an enhancement to your at-home date nights in 2022.
14. Capri Blue Candles
While a candle might seem like a boring gift, I promise you a trendy one that doubles as home decor is not. My favorite candle by far is Capri Blue’s Volcano scent. Not only do they smell amazing, but they come in chic jars that look amazing in any room. For Valentine's Day this year, you can score one of these jars in a pretty pink color if you're really looking to be on-brand. However, they come in a variety of colors and scents, so choose wisely.
15. Throw Blankets
And the parade of comfort gifts continues, now with a few of our favorite throw blankets. Throw blankets are always a great gift, in my opinion, especially this year—and especially for Valentine's Day if your giftee's thing is cozying up under them. For a splurge, Barefoot Dreams sells a CozyChic blanket that not only do we love here at Reviewed, but that Chrissy Teigen once recommended as an amazing gift. The blankets come in trendy animal prints and solid colors. For less expensive options, the Bliss Plush throw (which is the blanket version of our favorite robe!) at Nordstrom is a wonderful buy with a 5-star rating from over 2,100 reviews.
- Get the Barefoot Dreams In the Wild Throw Blanket from Nordstrom for $180
- Get the Barefoot Dreams CozyChic Throw Blanket from Nordstrom for $147
- Get the Kennebunk Bliss Plush Throw from Nordstrom for $39.50
16. La Mer
La Mer is an expensive moisturizer with a cult following—and also a perfect gift if you want to ball out on someone. La Mer moisturizing cream has over 85,000 hearts at Sephora and more than 1,800 reviews at Nordstrom with a 5-star rating. That is a lot of love. Why not spread more of it this Valentine's Day? (Pun absolutely intended.)
17. Essential Oil Diffuser
People are obsessed with essential oil diffusers, and why wouldn’t they be? They transform your home with good smells and good vibes. If you're shopping for someone who loves good smells and good vibes, bring peace and happiness into their life with our favorite oil diffuser. We tested the most popular models and found the Airomé Serenity Medium Diffuser to be the best thanks to its powerful performance and soothing scents.
18. A plant from The Sill
Plant parents could always use another pot of something to take care of. If you’re not keen on going to a florist to find the perfect plant, let us introduce you to The Sill, an online shop where you can purchase live plants and faux plants. If you're shopping for someone who loves greenery, a plant from The Sill would make a great gift, whether they have a green thumb or not. One of our experts reviewed the service and loved it.
19. Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer
The Revlon hair dryer brush is arguably the most popular product people bought in the last year. With 350,000 rave reviews on Amazon (yes, 350,000!), it has achieved cult status in the world of beauty products—and it's approved by our own experts. Reviewed's beauty editor, Jessica Kasparian, tested it and found that it absolutely does live up to the hype. It is the ultimate gift for anyone who spends time blow drying their hair.
20. Foot Massager
For Valentine’s Day this year, show how much you love them by giving them a self-care gift. ‘Tis the year of at-home comfort after all. This is why a foot massager would make a quality gift for Valentine’s Day. It’s the perfect substitute to gifting a day at the spa. In fact, it’s better because they can use the foot massager any time they want, whether they’re sitting in their home office, relaxing on the couch, or reading in a chair. We tested foot massagers at Reviewed and found the Renpho foot massager to be the best.
