This Valentine’s Day Gift Guide is the perfect answer to one of the most romantic days of the year.
When my husband and I were dating, Valentine’s day was one of the most special days of the year. I remember planning out a very detailed scavenger hunt full of hand-written notes and clues in all of the places my then-boyfriend would visit in a day. He would buy me flowers and write me notes, and because we were broke as a joke, he’d make me fondue and we’d eat it out of our tiny crock pot (the one you can find on ANY thrift store shelf).
These days, Valentine’s Day seems to be so much different. Every year, it seems to sneak up on us more and more — which is ironic because they start stocking the shelves for it THE day after Christmas.
Nonetheless, in search for a sweet gift for my hubby this year, I figured we all could use a little help in the romance arena. So whether you’re 19-year-old me writing sweet notes and planning scavenger hunts, or 35-year-old me trying to spice up your love life this Valentine’s Day, this is your one-stop-shop for gift ideas your spouse will love!

4. Dainty Necklace
Men, Y’all know the drill. You can’t go wrong with flowers, chocolate or jewelry on Valentine’s Day! The good news is, you don’t have to break the bank to get your honey something pretty. Kendra Scott has all the looks and styles your leading lady will love, at a price you can afford when it comes to last-minute gifts.
If Kendra is still not quite what you’re looking for, Maya Brenner is a great option for something a little different. Her initial necklaces are so dainty and feminine and they’re the perfect gift this Valentine’s Day. You can get her your initial or those of your babies, and mix and match with birthstones. It’s a gift she’ll get to enjoy long after February 14th! ($65+)
5. Serving Dishes
Never underestimate the power of a cute little serving dish. TJ Maxx and Homegoods are your number one destination for all things “household” at an affordable price she’ll love. Stock up on their newest seasonal collections like Rae Dunn, or find the perfect white serving dish to add to her collection. ($9)
Valentine’s Day will come and go, but one thing you can always count on is coffee. So get your spouse what they really want this V-day with the toughest, “most over-engineered camp mug out there,” and keep their coffee HOT all year long! ($30)
7. Spa Package
I know, I know, this one is an obvious choice. But I’m here to give you a few more pointers on this one. Remember my obsession with Groupon? GO THERE FIRST! Depending on your market there are SO many awesome deals on massages, spa packages, manicures and pedicures right there in one app! My husband and I have bought several couples massages and full-day spa packages on Groupon for a FRACTION of the price of what you would get going through the spa directly.
These are accredited businesses with SOLID reviews, simply using Groupon as a platform to get their brand out there. Don’t knock it ’till you try it, it could wind up saving you a good chunk of change!
8. Monthly Subscription Box
My Facebook feed is FLOODED with ads for these things, and after trying a handful of them, I have to say, I’m a true subscription box fan!
For the ladies you can’t go wrong with Ipsy, FabFitFun, CauseBox, Birchbox or FaithBox. There are similar options for the guys with BirchboxMan, Dollar Shave Club, and Loot Crate. Some start as low as $10/Month.
My favorite subscription platform though, has to be She Reads Truth. Started with Women in mind, She Reads Truth makes it possible for women to study and understand the Bible. They have seasonal reading plans, journals, the MOST WONDERFUL Bible, and resources for diving deeper. What’s better is that they also have a full line of He Reads Truth products, as well as Kids Read Truth Products, to keep the whole family engaged year-round.
9. Name Ring
My husband got me one of these while we were dating, and I haven’t wanted to take it off since! These name rings are the perfect Valentine’s Day gift to remind her of your love all year long! Get her one with your name on it, or stack them with the kids’ names. Whichever you choose, she’ll be reminded of those who love her every time she looks down. ($21)
10. Date Night Bucket List
Who knows that it’s just about impossible to come up with a good date night idea and stick to it? Not anymore. Get crafty this Valentine’s Day with a Date Night Bucket List that will have you surprised and delighted every time you and your honey hit the town.
