No matter the relationship stage you’re in—dating, married, or in a situationship—Valentine’s Day can turn up the pressure for extravagant, rom-com worthy displays of love and devotion. But the reality isn’t always as romantic. If you’ve been with someone for a really long time, the same old heart-shaped box of chocolates and flowers might begin to feel a bit stale, and if you’re just getting started with someone new, you might be itching to gush, but wary of going overboard.
Truth be told, there is no “perfect” Valentine’s Day gift for couples, but there are some that are better than others.
What is the most popular Valentine’s Day gift?
Gifts are great and all, but the honest truth is that time spent with your partner is the best gift of them all. Which is why we think that the best Valentine’s Day gifts for couples are the ones that you can enjoy together, and that pave the way for more meaningful quality time.
For example, if you and your partners are foodies who love to cook new recipes at home, new cookware or matching aprons will make cooking meals together even more special. If you’re homebodies who love to lounge and practice self care together, a comfy robe, slippers, and blanket would all make delightful Valentine’s Day gifts. And if you can’t keep your hands off each other, there are countless sexy gift options out there that’ll set sparks flying in the bedroom, from vibrators to lube. To spare you the headache of having to track these gifts down yourself, we rounded up the very best Valentine’s Day gifts for couples that you can shop right now (which we’d gently recommend, as V-day is less than a month away!)
