CVS is full of heart-shaped balloons, the price of roses just doubled and someone at work is eating Sweethearts... This can only mean one thing: Valentine’s Day is upon us! But don’t worry; we’ve got you covered, with awesome gifts for everyone on your list. 

01

For Your Partner

This Valentine’s Day, we’re all about buying an old-fashioned watch for your main squeeze. Shinola’s Canfield Sport 45mm is a gorgeous option for men and the Runwell 41mm is a standout for women. Or, if you refuse to fall prey to this “Hallmark holiday,” at least get your partner some flowers and chocolate, ya grinch!

For You – and Them

This is a Valentine’s Day gift guide after all, so we’d be remiss not to include at least one of those gifts. We chose the ThirdLove Bodysuit, because it’s going to be hot on February 14th, but it’ll also actually be wearable post V-Day as an undergarment, instead of being banished to the back of that drawer where long-forgotten garters go to die.

For Your Best Friend

Your best friend helps you stay positive when times get tough; so help them see the world through rose-colored glasses too, with Reformation’s Patti Sunglasses. These shades also come in a chic black version for the pink-averse best friend. And, more good news: they’re made of an eco-friendly, plant-based material instead of plastic.

For Your Sister

Give your sister the gift of “edible attraction” this Valentine’s Day with Moon Juice’s adorably packaged Sex Dust. The mixture includes libido-boosting ingredients like Horny Goat Weed and Shatavari Root. Your sis can simply mix it into her coffee and let the good times roll, or if she’s a real Martha Stewart, she can make it into Sex Dust bark.

For Your Brother

Great booze is always a welcome gift, so get your brother some mezcal, the spirit of the moment, this Valentine’s Day. Siete Misterios Coyote is our pick; it’s made from rare Coyote agave, hand-milled and distilled in clay pots. Plus, it has skeletons getting married on the label, so it works whether your brother loves or hates Valentine’s Day.

For Your Parents

When it comes to picking presents for your parents, you can’t go wrong with fancy bath products — especially if your mom and dad have been using the same bar soap and wearing the same bathrobes since you were in high school (too spot on? We’re aware.). Think: our sophisticated and cozy Cashmere Blend Robe and ultra-relaxing Sleep Time Bath Salt.

For the Couple

This Heath Ceramics Large Serving Bowl is the perfect V-Day gift for the (incredibly lucky) couple in your life. With a pale gray color on the outside and a warm wildflower pop of pink on the inside, this two-toned bowl is the perfect combination of chic and romantic. Your friends’ fruit bowl just got a lot cooler.
