Gone are the days when Valentine’s Day was just about buying a box of chocolates for your significant other. While there’s nothing wrong with taking this traditional approach to the holiday, Valentine’s Day has expanded into an opportunity to celebrate love in all forms. Buying Valentine's Day gifts for her is one way to ensure the special women in your life feel all the love on V-Day — whether you're shopping for Valentine's Day gifts for your wife, new girlfriend, mom, best friend, or daughter.
If you’re in a relationship, you may swap gifts in addition to exchanging love letters, having a rom-com movie marathon, or cooking a romantic dinner for two. But you can also spend the day with family members or girlfriends, perhaps hosting a Valentine's themed party complete with Galentine's gifts and festive cocktails.
The gift ideas below include options suitable for a variety of women, so you’ll find inspiration for whoever you're shopping for. There are classic ideas like flowers and candy, sentimental gifts that feature personal photos and handwritten notes, as well as presents that are more practical or focused on her favorite hobbies. Most of the gifts are budget-friendly and cost less than $50 (with several affordable gifts under $20), but there are also a few luxury items in case this Valentine’s Day happens to be extra special. Whichever gifts you land on, make sure to accompany them with a thoughtful Valentine's Day card to make the holiday even more unforgettable.
