Stumped about what to get your valentine? I have you covered! All of these romantic Valentine’s day gift ideas are thoughtful and everyone will love them.
What Valentine’s Day Means
An entire day to celebrate love – what is better than that? While I do make sure everyone around me knows how much I love them every day, it’s nice to give a little more effort on Valentine’s Day.
It isn’t just about romantic love either, although if you have a partner, this is the day to go all out!
This day of love is about spreading kindness and positivity. It’s about telling and showing people how much you adore them; passing the spark of love from one soul to another and watching it light up the world. It’s such a beautiful and amazing thing.
Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas
There are millions of ways to express your feelings on Valentine’s Day. And since life goes by in a blur, I want to help you ignite your creativity by sharing a few of my favorite ideas.
Pick out some of your favorites and personalize them for the person you love!
Homemade Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas
Little things can carry such heavy meaning. A memento that reminds you of the first time you fell in love with them, or something you know will make them laugh… this is what makes the best gift.
And when you make the gift yourself, it means so much more. Homemade gifts are always unique, rare, and one-of-a-kind. They stand out from the rest because they were made by you specifically for them.
Give them something that reminds you of them.
You could put together a little collection of love notes. Tell them how much they mean to you, even if each note is just a few lines long. You could even create a mini-scrapbook with photos of the two of you together!
Make it like a highlight reel of your happiest moments together because going down memory lane is sure to make them smile.
Self-Care Gift Basket
One of my favorite handmade Valentine’s Day gift ideas is to hand-pick a self-care gift basket. This tells the person that you know what their favorite things are and it also tells them how much you care about their mental health and emotions.
A self-care gift basket tells your partner, “I love you. I see how hard you work and you deserve to be pampered. Every single item in this basket was picked out to help you feel as amazing as you are.”
What you put in the basket depends on what your partner enjoys. You want everything to be as close to their favorites as you can get.
Here are a few ideas that would be perfect:
The first thing I’d put in the basket is a bath bomb or two. A hot bath is a perfect way to unwind after a stressful day! Our bath bombs are made with all-natural ingredients such as witch hazel, baking soda, and aloe vera juice. We also use organic essential oils for an added dose of healing aromatherapy.
I’d also fill the basket with some rejuvenating body butter. There is nothing quite like the feeling of rubbing body butter on your legs and arms, especially when it is infused with essential oils.
Our organic body butter feeds and nourishes the skin. The ingredients are so pure, you could eat them. You might want to pick up an extra tub for yourself too. It’s amazing stuff!
It might be small, but don’t forget the lip balm. Lips need TLC, especially in the winter.
Here, at Siphon Draw, we have lots of choices to choose from. If your love enjoys fruity scents, the prickly pear lip balm is a perfect choice.
Usually, around this time of year and on Valentine’s day, the chocolate rose lip balm tends to be our best seller! It’s a very romantic choice and smells good enough to eat.
I will say that anyone that enjoys a hot cup of coffee will love this espresso lip balm.
Espresso Facial Polish
People call this product different things. Some call it a facial scrub and some call it a skin scrub. Here at the shop, we call it a polish because it brings out the natural glow in your skin.
I would recommend including the espresso facial polish in the basket, especially if they love coffee. It smells so good and feels invigorating when you use it.
Every gift basket should have some of our popular lavender soap in it. It’s naturally relaxing and perfect to use right before bed. Lavender essential oil is typically referred to as calming oil. Just the smell of it helps you unwind.
All of our handmade soaps are made from locally sourced (as much as possible), organic ingredients. Many of them also have organic herbal tea mixed in during the process. These soaps are gentle enough for a baby’s skin, so it’s perfect for anyone with sensitive skin.
Other Things To Include
Fill the basket with anything else that reminds you of them! Put anything in it that will help them feel pampered.
This basket is all about self-care, self-love, and taking care of our bodies.
Here are a few more ideas:
- Vegan Candles
- Wei of Chocolate
- Mead Honey Wine
- Buddha Teas
- Pure Raw Desert Honey (for their tea)
- Lavender Healing Salve
