5. Anthon Berg Chocolate Coffee Gift Pack
If you’re shopping for a woman who loves cocktails, coffee, and chocolate, this is a great gift.

Included flavors are as follows: Irish Coffee, Cuban Coffee, French Coffee, and Mexican Coffee.

8. Diana Gabaldon ‘Outlander’ Series 7 Book Set
The first Outlander book may have come out in the 90s, but the series is getting a lot of attention now after inspiring a period drama on Starz.

Valentine’s Day Gifts for Men
Finding a Valentine’s Day gift for a man can be a little intimidating.

12. Pebble Time Steel Smartwatch
Watches are a classic gift idea for men, but we think the time has come to opt for a smartwatch over an analog model. The new Pebble Time Steel works with both Android and iPhone devices, and has a sleek-yet-rugged design. This full-featured watch is water resistant to 30 meters, with battery life up to 10 days. It’s also got a built-in microphone for voice notes and quick replies, a feature you won’t find on most smartwatches out there.

13. ‘Star Wars’ Cast Signed Autographed 8×10

20. Scotch Rocking Duo Gift Set
Does he enjoy fine whiskey? This gift set is a thoughtful gift for Valentine’s Day, especially if you pick up a bottle of his favorite tipple to go along with it. This set includes two perfectly sized whiskey glasses, eight “scotch rocks” and a bag to hold the rocks in when they are not in use. The rocks are a nice option for guys who like their whiskey chilled, but don’t want to use ice (which dilutes the flavor as it melts).
More of a beer guy? Skip the scotch set and get him a Brooklyn Beer home brewing kit instead.
Valentine’s Day Flowers
There’s a whole language to flowers, with each flower having its own unique meaning. Red roses, of course, are the most popular choice on Valentine’s Day. Red roses symbolize true love, making them a perfect choice for your serious, long-term partner. But if you need flowers for your mom, a friend, or someone you’ve only recently started dating, red roses and their symbolism of romantic love may not be quite the sentiment you’re trying to express. In addition, around Valentine’s Day, it’s very common for florists to jack up the prices on red roses. Budget-conscious gift hunters may prefer different blooms for this reason. And because demand is high this time of year, supplies of red roses often very low just before Valentine’s Day, which is hugely frustrating. Our guide to the best Valentine’s Day flower arrangements below contains suggestions for red rose bouquets, as well as other options for those who want to mix it up.
When ordering flowers online, make sure you order far enough in advance of the holiday to ensure that your flowers will be delivered on time. Some florist companies only deliver on certain days of the week, so make sure to read the fine print before placing your order.
21. One Dozen Long Stemmed Red Roses
This bouquet of a dozen red roses comes in an elegant vase, so she can display them right away at home or at the office. Delivery options are blacked out for certain days of the week, so you’ll want to order them a little bit ahead of the holiday. You can give them right away to surprise her, or hide them in the house until the actual holiday. These flowers are backed by a seven-day freshness guarantee, so you won’t have to worry about them wilting before you get a chance to present them to your partner.
Looking for an even bigger bouquet? Browse more red rose bouquet options here.
22. Benchmark Bouquets Big Blooms Bouquet
Not comfortable with the “true love” symbolism of red roses? This attractive bouquet incorporate pink roses, yellow roses, and oriental lilies to create an eye-catching display. Pink roses can symbolize love as well, but they also symbolize gratitude. The yellow rose symbolizes friendship. Some people believe that the lilies symbolize purity of heart and virtue.
23. Heart Shape Lucky Bamboo Plant With Tall Glass Vase
Some women prefer living plants to cut flowers. Other women have allergies, which makes them uncomfortable around cut flowers. If your lady love falls into one of these two categories, she might prefer this live, “lucky” bamboo plant that has been shaped into a heart. It’s a nice alternative to roses this Valentine’s Day. Plus, who doesn’t need a little extra luck in their lives?
24. 24 Long Stem Blushing Beauty Rose Bouquet

This starter bracelet from Fossil will let her pick and choose her favorite moments in life, and commemorate them with a little charm. We particularly like the camera, Eiffel Tower, and engagement ring charms from Fossil (though be careful handing over that last one if you haven’t popped the question yet).

Did she like what you got her last year, or was last Valentine’s Day a bust? If you want to do Valentine’s Day right, here are a variety of gift ideas that will work for your girlfriend. Our guide to the best gifts for girlfriends is also a nice resource to tap.
61. Van Gogh Almond Blossom Bangle
If your girlfriend loves art, this Vincent van Gogh bracelet is perfect. Inspired by the artist’s famous painting of almond blossoms, this elegant piece looks great with a little black dress, or dressed down with jeans and a button-up shirt. This is a nice piece for a girl you like, and haven’t been dating for very long.
62. Lark & Ro Women’s Cashmere Slim-Fit V-Neck Sweater
February is sweater weather, and cashmere sweaters are the most swoon-worthy sweaters out there. While cashmere can be quite expensive, these V-neck sweaters from Lark & Ro are actually quite affordable. The sweaters are 100 percent cashmere, and come in a variety of fun colors. You should choose the color that your partner looks best in, but if you’re still stymied, you can’t go wrong with the red (“bright berry”), which is the perfect color for Valentine’s Day. Not confident you’ll buy the right size? Maybe a one-size-fits-all cashmere scarf is a safer bet.
Price: $35.37 – $52.87, depending on size and color selected
63. Valentine Gift Set
Can’t decide on one gift? Grab a gift set that bundles a bunch of romantic gifts together in one package. This gift set includes typical Valentine’s Day gifts, such as a giant Hershey’s Kiss, a plush teddy bear, a red rose, and two Valentine’s Day themed “love mugs”.
The set also includes a gift bag and tissue paper, which makes wrapping this holiday gift a breeze. Of course, you could always split up the set among friends and family, if you needed gifts for lots of people. Still need to see more options before you make up your mind?

Price: $24.95 (29 percent off MSRP)
64. ‘Valentine’s Day’
This movie is the perfect “date night” choice for couples looking to stay in this Valentine’s Day. This gift is fine on its own, but the real gift will be you sitting there and watching it with her, without complaining about watching a “chick flick”. This is also a fine gift for friends and family. Much like Love Actually, this story features intersecting couples. The film takes places in Los Angeles as the various couples hook up and break up. Don’t forget to pick up a heartfelt card to go along with your gift.
Price: $9.69 (35 percent off MSRP)
65. Etat Libre d’Orange La Fin du Monde Eau de Parfum Spray
Is your girlfriend edgy, independent, or just plain hard to shop for? This might be the perfect perfume to suit her one-in-a-million personality. Parisian perfumers Etat Libre d’Orange specialize in scents that are a little offbeat, whimsical, and daring. La Fin du Monde means “the end of the world,” and this perfume is definitely not your typical perfume. This woody, unisex scent is really out there, with notes of popcorn, carrot seeds, cumin, sesame, black pepper, and gunpowder mixed in with traditional floral and musk notes. This is a perfume for the woman who constantly defies expectations.
Want other perfume recommendations? We also like many of the company’s other scents, including Encens & Bubblegum and Eau de Protection. Whichever option you choose, consider adding a vintage-inspired perfume atomizer to make your gift seem even more special.
66. Crabtree & Evelyn Hand Therapy Products
Did you just start dating your current girlfriend? I mean just, like maybe only a couple of weeks ago? It might be too soon in your relationship for roses and jewelry. This simple gift is thoughtful, and also quite practical during the coldest, driest months of the year. Formulated with nourishing macadamia nut oil, shea butter and moisture-locking ceramides, these nourishing creams will help repair dry skin.
Price: $12.50 and up, depending on scent and size selected
67. Dogeared Pearls of Love 8mm Freshwater Pearl Necklace
Dogeared‘s dainty, diminutive necklaces are very popular right now, and it’s not hard to see why. This particular style features a single freshwater cultured pearl, arranged on keepsake card. The card expresses lovely sentiments that are perfect for Valentine’s Day: “pearls represent the best in us…something beautiful that comes from within. wear your necklace as a reminder that you are incredibly loved.” What woman wouldn’t melt after reading sentiments like that?
Looking for something a little more rare, or a little more upmarket? Perhaps a necklace of black Tahitian pearls would be better for your girlfriend.
68. Best Girlfriend Victory Trophy Award
While we wouldn’t recommend that you give this “best girlfriend award” as your only gift this Valentine’s Day, it’s a nice gift to give alongside flowers, chocolate, jewelry, or a night on the town. If you want to give her a gift that’s funny and heartfelt, this is a cool gift idea that will definitely elicit a strong reaction. Another gift idea that’s similar to this is the “Best Girlfriend Ever” coffee mug.
69. ‘I Love You’ Necklace in 120 Languages (Imprinted in 24K Gold)
How do you say “I love you” on Valentine’s Day? Sometimes, you need a gift that literally says it for you. This silver necklace features the phrase “I love you” in 120 different languages on top of a colored cubic zirconia stone. There are multiple color options to choose from, so you can find a color that suits her personality or mirrors her birthstone’s color. Every necklace comes with a magnifying glass, which will help her to see all of the tiny text. This is an especially romantic gift for women who love languages or linguistics.
Price: $149 (29 percent off)
70. Kimring Women’s Sexy Faux Leather Shoulder Strap Corset With Lace Skirt
For some, Valentine’s Day means the purchase of sexy lingerie. We like this sexy corset for a couple of reasons. First, it’s ideal for boosting the confidence of a woman who doesn’t love her midsection, and wants to keep it covered up. Secondly, it’s very sexy, and perfect for couples who might want to do a little saucy role playing on Valentine’s Day. Best of all, the back closes with a zipper, so it’s much easier to get into (and out of) than a laced-back corset.
If this piece of lingerie isn’t to your taste, or more importantly, to your girlfriend’s taste, you can browse more sexy lingerie designs here.
Price: $24.99 – $28.99, depending on size and color selected
