Not to start things off on a negative note (it’s the season of love, after all), but is there a more polarizing holiday than Valentine’s Day? Some of us go all-in on the opportunity to show those around us a little love, but there is always the temptation to get a little cynical and write the holiday off as a clever marketing ploy. I’ll be straight with you—I used to fall into the latter category of V-day dissenters. However, as I’ve gotten older and made a concerted effort to look at things from a fresher perspective, I’ve learned to welcome every part of the holiday with an open heart. Of course, that includes Valentine’s Day gifts as well.
Whether you’re in a new relationship, have been with your partner for years, want to shower your friends with a little love, or treat yourself to something special, our guide to th ebest Valentine’s Day gifts has you covered. If you’re at a loss for what to get or just need a little inspiration, scroll on for all the gift ideas you could ever need.

The Best Valentine’s Day Gifts to Spoil Your S.O.
While my love languages are more on the words of affirmation and physical touch side of things, I’ll never pass up the chance to give someone a little something to make them smile. If you want to give me a box of chocolate, I’ll happily accept. And if a bouquet of flowers is more your speed, know that I love filling my house with fresh blooms. But in 2024, things have shifted. Gone are the days of sweets and florals being your only options. Instead, we’ve collectively expanded our idea of what counts as a romantic gift. A book of poetry? Bound to inspire even the most reading-averse recipient. The best coffee you’ve ever had delivered to your door? Sign up and subscribe. A sweet scarf to pair with every outfit? Add to cart.
Basically, in our world of daily shifts in the zeitgeist and a constant cycling of trends, anything goes. If that sounds overwhelming, don’t worry. Ahead are the most unique and thoughtful Valentine’s Day gifts that’ll make anyone’s holiday special.
Every product is curated with care by our editors and we’ll always give an honest opinion, whether gifted or purchased ourselves. If you buy something through our links, we may earn a small commission at no cost to you.
The Best Valentine’s Day Gifts for Her
Daily Drills Oversized Fleece Crew
For the cool girl in your life. The entire Camille Styles team lauds Daily Drills’ loungewear as the comfiest—and chicest—around. Trust us: she’ll never want to take this off. And yes, it can be worn well past Valentine’s Day.
Daily Drills Unisex Fleece Joggers
Because her new favorite top needs the perfect joggers to match. Roomy, but still flattering, these are the ultimate in work-from-home wear. OOTD, done and dusted—and she’ll love the set so much, she’ll be tempted to wear it to your V-Day date.
Live Tinted Rays Copper Peptide Eye Masks
If you’ve just started dating or are looking to gift your friends something sweet, I love a fun little beauty present to inspire a moment of self-care. Layered with a triple complex of copper peptides, banana extract, and bakuchiol (retinol’s buzzy, natural alternative), these cooling eye masks are the ultimate pick-me-up. Bonus: They make the perfect self-care selfie.
The Coffee Ritual Bundle
For the girl who loves making everything a ritual. (Hi, it’s us.) This beautifully-packaged bundle of treats comes with everything she needs to romanticize her morning cuppa. A bag of Finca Los Rodriguez beans, a handcrafted coffee scoop, and a pair of our favorite hand-thrown mugs—so you can enjoy a cup as well.
Is there anything more romantic than receiving a gorgeous gift from Sézane? (A hint to everyone who plans to buy me a V-Day gift—no, there definitely is not.) Made in Italy, this baby alpaca scarf is the perfect topper to any outfit. And things get all the chicer when paired with the matching hat. If she doesn’t love pink, she has a range of color options to choose from.
Round Topaz Hoops
For me, Valentine’s Day is all about soaking up life’s little luxuries—and dainty jewelry is my fave. Crafted of 18k solid gold vermeil and white topaz, these sweet hoops are gorgeous on their own or when curated in a coordinating earring stack.
Drew Bone Small Recycled Vegan Top Handle Bag
Sure—“ludicrously capacious” bags may be trending once again, but I’d argue that a small top handle bag is always in style. (And truthfully, I’d rather carry the latter than a giant tote to dinner.) And because I’ve decided it’s time I stop breaking my back lugging around all my belongings at once, this vegan leather bag was number one on my list. If you or your S.O. are committed to streamlining things as well, this is the stylish carryall that’ll make it happen. It holds your phone, wallet, keys, and a few makeup essentials. Translation: everything you’ll ever need.
Dream Lip Oil
Tired of feeling left out after seeing every influencer gushing over this high-shine lip oil, I caved and bought myself a tube as well. (Spoiler: I’m going back for every single shade.) And though my medicine cabinet can attest to a never-ending rotation of lipsticks, glosses, and stains, this is my new favorite pick. Think moisturizing minus any stickiness. Beyond appearance alone, these oils are incredibly nourishing and hydrating for your pout. Soft and smooth lips? A V-day must.
14K Gold Diamond Letter Bracelet
Classic, but contemporary. If you’re going for a gift that’s sure to be treasured by its recipient, this bracelet is a surefire bet. Designed in 14K gold, this simple (but *sparkly*) bracelet will be the focal point of any outfit it adorns.
Intelligent Change Spark Romance Bundle
For the ever-curious and lovers of quality time among us, this duo of conversation cards and affirmation deck is sure to delight. Perfect for your next date night.
7 Days of Mindfulness Puzzle Set
Count this puzzle set among my favorite purchases of the previous year. Each puzzle comprises just 70 pieces, all adding up to a gorgeous abstract print. It’s so soothing to complete one or all of the puzzles, giving you that little boost of serotonin. (Hello, task completion!)
OUAI Melrose Place Eau de Parfum
I love collecting perfumes, but in a pinch, this is my signature scent. Top notes of rose are beautifully balanced by hints of bergamot, lychee, cedar-wood, and white musk. Translation: this perfume is floral without being overwhelming so, making it a great everyday fragrance that’s special enough for a night out.
Pack It All Multi-Purpose Hanging Travel Bag
I’m quick to write off another celebrity or creator-founded beauty brand, but DEZI Skin is my new obsession. Helmed by my forever go-to beauty and fashion muse, Desi Perkins, the brand crafts gorgeous, inclusive formulations responsibly-sourced from Mexico. Having long been on the hunt for the perfect travel skincare bag, this sleek and streamlined design stopped my search in its tracks. If you really want to make your S.O. swoon, fill it with the Destination Dezi travel kit—a trio of the brand’s hero products.
Harley Lingerie Set
One of my intentions for 2024 was to lean deeper into my feminine energy. While this transformation takes place more in an abstract sense than a physical one, I am still embracing all the confidence that comes with upgrading my lingerie. Kat the Label is my favorite brand for affordable sleepwear and lingerie—and what’s sexier than hot pink for V-Day? (I also have this set in black and I love!)
The Best Valentine’s Day Gifts for Him
If you’re waiting for him to finally suggest going on a weekend getaway, this duffle will sweeten the deal. The water-resistant duck canvas exterior helps it hold up to any adventure. It’s perfectly practical (re: designed with room enough for the over-packer he is) and timelessly stylish. Consider this duffle the ultimate investment in his travel arsenal.
Men’s Wicked Good Moccasins
As all New Englanders know, when something is “wicked” good, it’s an immediate yes. These moccasin slippers are proof of exactly that. My dad can attest to their durable comfort—he’s had his for years. Lined with shearling, every pair is a must for cold-weather comfort. Trust me: there’s no harm in matching and picking them up for yourself.
Tablet Library, Set of 6
Your standard box of chocolates, reimagined. While we all love a good treat for the sake of snacking on something sweet, these take indulgence a step further. If you’re lucky enough to have a friend who just came back Hawai’i, it’s likely you’ve sampled the deliciousness that is Koho Chocolate. Each bar is wonderfully nuanced, amplifying careful ingredient sourcing and thoughtful production. My favorite is the Hawaiian Macadamia & Sea Salt Dark Chocolate, but with this variety pack, you won’t have to choose. (And hopefully, your valentine will share.)
Spoiler: I preemptively presented my partner with this bundle of finishing salts and spices, and… he can’t get enough. Seriously—this was just last week and he’s about halfway through each jar. He loves the Chef’s All Purpose Spice for seasoning meat (I’ve already benefited from both burgers and chicken) and the Citrus Chili Finishing Salt is perfect on avocado and eggs. But really, the options are endless.
The Trio of Knives
It’s a rite of passage for every adult: you need a good set of knives. And no—you don’t have to shell out major $$ for the right set. Material understands the role intentional design plays in a well-stocked kitchen. That’s why the brand pared down to the essentials. An 8″ chef’s knife, 4″ paring knife, and serrated 6″ knife is all any pro or aspiring home chef needs.
The Creative Act by Rick Rubin
Ask anyone on the Camille Styles team—we’ve all devoured this book. With insight on what it means to live a consistently creative life, it’s the perfect read for anyone looking to connect more intentionally with their everyday rituals and routines. Our copies are fully marked up, and it’s a title we return to whenever we could use a little more inspiration.
UO Short Roll Knit Beanie
Because winter ain’t over yet, and we could all use something stylish to keep us warm. A classic beanie will look cute on anyone—and I’ve been known to swoon over this short-roll style. (Honestly, it’s universally flattering. So much so, you’ll be tempted to steal it for yourself.)
Kombucha Making Kit
Camille Styles Content Marketing Director, Brittany is well-versed in the world of homemade kombucha fermentation. (Her kombucha cocktails are amazing.) While the process can be trying at times, it’s one that this kit helps you do together. Quality time!
The Dog Father Embroidered Hat
Can I just say that this cap speaks for itself? All the best (dog) dad hats do.
Maldon Smoked Sea Salt
There’s little that isn’t made better by a sprinkling of good sea salt. Maldon is our forever go-to, and this smoked salt turns the volume up all the more. To go the extra mile, pair it with this ceramic salt cellar.
Cutting Board Set
Like a good set of knives, cutting boards he can rely on are a must. This trio gives you an option for every possible slicing-and-dicing need. Non-toxic and easy to clean, these will be a staple in his kitchen for years to come. (Psst… our link gets you 10% off!)
Birkenstock Boston Clogs
These classic clogs sit at the intersection of style and comfort—and everyone needs a pair. Perfect for running errands, grabbing coffee, or anytime he needs something he can just slip on, these clogs will quickly become his new fave.
