Valentine’s Day His/Her Gift Guide

Lets be honest, not all of us are the best at picking out gifts for our loved ones. I thought it would help not only the girls but the guys as well by putting together a Valentine’s Day gift guide. I’m also throwing in some hints on date night ideas.

valetine's day gifts for Her

The very first hint I could give you is flowers, but to be honest not every woman loves them. The next big seller on Valentine’s Day is chocolate! Everyone has their favorite type of chocolate but if I had to pick I would go with these Droga Chocolates ‘Money On Honey’ Wildflower Honey Caramels In Dark Chocolate (9 Pieces). I have been a sucker for dark chocolate lately.

If you are looking for smaller less expensive gifts then I suggest a cute coffee mug and journal. I can honestly say I use those two items daily. However if you are wanting to add something else, I love this Women’s Pj Salvage Jersey Henley Night Shirt. It’s on sale right now for 40% off! Nothing like sipping coffee in your favorite night gown.

As far as jewelry is concerned, you can never go wrong with a basic necklace. I love this Women’s Argento Vivo Personalized Script Bar Pendant Necklace for everyday wear. However if you are wanting to get her something that will knock her socks off then I suggest this Women’s Olivia Burton After Dark Leather Strap Watch, 38Mm. It is absolutely stunning!!

Yet your gal may not be the jewelry type. So that is why I left the best for last. This Michael Michael Kors ‘Large Mercer’ Tote – is a classic and would be such a great staple to any woman’s collection.

valentine's day gifts for him

As for the men, I decided to have my husband pick out a few gifts to help the ladies out. The first item he chose was this Men’s Herschel Supply Co. Sutton Twill Duffel Bag – Green. Whether your man loves the gym or he travels for work, a duffel is a must! It doesn’t hurt that this bad boy is 40% off either.

The next item he picked was this Men’s Patagonia ‘Better Sweater’ Quarter Zip Pullover, Size X-Large – Brown. It gets cold in Tennessee during the winter months and these pullovers are perfect for keeping your man warm.

If your guy is more into electronics, then this Bose Soundlink Mini Ii Bluetooth Speaker, Size One Size – Grey is pretty awesome. My husband takes his everywhere with him. He loves taking it to work functions and keeps it handy for his late night workouts in the garage. However if it is a bit out of your budget then this Hex Icon Iphone 7 Plus Case & Wallet – Brown is pretty sick too.

The last item he chose was this Mvmt Chronograph Leather Strap Watch, 45Mm. The fact that it is both tan and black means you could wear it with pretty much ANYTHING!


There are so many ways you can spend a date but it honestly depends on what your lady likes. If she normally is constantly working and running errands then she may just want a romantic dinner at the house. If you don’t want to cook I suggest ordering her favorite restaurant to go and have a candlelight dinner. Afterwards, pick out a movie on Netflix and relax for the rest of the evening.

If your gal doesn’t get out very much, I suggest taking her to dinner or a picnic (depending on how cold it is). If she loves wine then take her to a vineyard. (A little tip – make sure she is dressed appropriately for the occasion). My husband watched me get all dolled up and then took me to a mud run. Please do not do this to your girlfriend/wife.

Here is a small list of other ideas just in case!

  • Movies or Drive In
  • Bowling (I am a sucker for a night of bowling)
  • Live Band or Concert
  • Hot Air Balloon Ride.. Fancy I know.
  • Ice Skating
  • Dancing
  • Bed & Breakfast Getaway
  • Camping
  • Horse Back Riding / Hiking / Sailing
  • Dinner Cruise

Hope you guys enjoyed this post! Let me know how your Valentine’s Day goes!
