Even if it’s only a Sunday ritual, that early morning time together will be made extra special with these awesome mugs. Bonus point, they’re totally Instagram worthy. If you’re looking to spend just a touch more, gift her this lovely wedding inspired coffee table book (which will probably get her off your back about wedding planning while she peruses pretty pictures).

Not only is this gift quite romantic, but it doubles as a great place to start working on your vows. There’s nothing that women like more than hearing all the reasons that you love them (truth). This gift also gives you major sappy points without having to break the bank. Include these gorgeous Valentine inspired cake pops for a sweet tasting treat.

The name sold us on this project, but the high-quality designer fabric, delicate design, and overall comfort are all reasons that your soon to be wife will absolutely adore these cozy pajamas shorts. If you’re looking for something sexy to pair them with, this merlot colored cami is made with the same top-notch fabrics and has just enough see-through lace to bring the heat.
5. Always Under the Same Sky Hand Stamped Skinny Cuff Bracelet
This bracelet is quite romantic, with a quote that will remind your Valentine that even when you’re not together physically, you’re still connected on a much larger scale. The bracelet is easy to incorporate into just about any style, with an ultra-thin quarter inch thick band, that can be worn among other bracelets or a watch without overcrowding her wrist. Each bracelet is hand stamped, making it a true one of a kind piece of jewelry.
6. Dreamgirl Lyric Art Print
Music is one of the best ways to connect with loved ones. Whether it’s going to a concert together or listening to your favorite records at home, music has a way of bringing people together. This artist creates awesome prints, made from some of the best popular lyrics. This one is a personal favorite – a Dave Matthews Band lyric that reads “you’re like my first friend”. The print can be ordered in several sizes, either framed or unframed, depending on how much you’re looking to spend. Want to browse some other lyric inspired print options? Check them out here.

This soft style tee can be ordered in an array of sizes, ranging from x-small to xx-large. Keep in mind they do run small and you might want to consider sizing up for the best fit.
8. Godiva Chocolatier Signature Chocolate Truffles
Go back to the basics with an awesome box of chocolates for your fiancée this Valentine’s Day. Unfortunately, now that you’re engaged, a lousy box of chocolate from the drug store just isn’t going to cut it, and you’re going to have to pull out the big guns. This box delivers on both flavor and aesthetics, with a box of 36 chocolates from the best of the best. If you need to scale down just slightly, this box is just under $45.
