Valentine’s Day is a lot of fun, but there’s no question it can be a bit tricky picking out the perfect gift. Do you choose something techy for him or sparkly for her? Or, do you pick something you’ll both love?
The best advice I can give is to choose a Valentine’s Day gift that’s thoughtful. When your loved one opens the gift on Valentine’s Day, they’ll immediately know you put a lot of consideration into the choice, and that means everything.
Here’s a top 10 list of thoughtful Valentine’s Day gifts for the person you love.
Watches are perfect for Valentine’s Day
There are a lot of thoughtful gifts you can choose on Valentine’s Day, but I’ve always thought jewelry was at the top of the list. My husband gave me a watch one Valentine’s Day, and every time I look down at the watch face, I remember when and why he gave it to me.
If you want to gift a watch that makes her smile, take a look at the Fossil Jacqueline. It’s a rose-gold tone quartz-powered watch with a pretty heart design, and it’s water-resistant so you can wear it everywhere. For him, there’s the Bulova Men’s Chronograph watch, and although it’s silver and gold style looks great during the day or at night, it’s also 30m water resistant for all types of weather.
Jewelry is always thoughtful
Beyond watches, there’s also other types of jewelry you can choose to really show your thoughtfulness this Valentine’s Day. You can give the gift of sparkle with a pair of 14K White Gold stud earrings. They have round 0.15ctw diamonds and they’re the perfect size for every day. Or, if he likes to add a little style to his day, a pair of onyx cufflinks could be the one thing he never leaves home without.
Give the gift of a handbag
My friends and I covet every great handbag we see, and they join me in an absolute love of all things Fossil. If the person you’re gifting for loves handbags and Fossil the way I do, she will love the Fossil Kinley crossbody bag.
It’s made from ultra-soft leather, is two-tone for a sleek look, and has enough space for all her daily gear. There’s even a zippered closure so if the bag spills open, her makeup or phone won’t fall out.
Why not a wallet?
Messenger bags let them store everything, every day of the year
For him or her there’s the Frye’s Logan laptop briefcase, and if they love retro, they’ll love this messenger bag. It’s made from soft, supple leather and has a rough, well-loved look that makes it seem as though it’s been there, done that, and been by your side for years.
Activity trackers are great for the active person
When the person you love is interested in fitness, they might spend a lot of time at the gym or counting their steps. They can do that even easier with a fitness tracker. There are a lot of different fitness trackers you can choose from including the Fitbit Alta HR. It tracks your heart, your sleep, and all of your activity including your steps, stairs, distance, and calories burned throughout the day.
There’s also other types of tracking gifts you can give that show you care on Valentine’s Day. If your special someone loses his or her wallet, keys, or even dog, you can give them the Tile Mate Bluetooth trackers.
I have a set of these trackers and I’ve put one in my wallet, another on my key chain, and one on the collar of each of my cats. They really work, and I think a gift that reduces stress levels on busy days would be greatly appreciated on Valentine’s Day.
Say I love you with Virtual Reality
I know there are a lot of people out there that, just like me, would think that someone really loved them if they gave the gift of the Lenovo Star Wars Jedi Challenges AR headset. If you’ve never played with augmented reality, you’re in for a lot of fun. All you need is the Jedi Challenge app, the headset, and your smartphone and you’ll be immersed in Jedi Training. You can even take on Kylo Ren and Darth Vader and lead the Rebel forces.
If you just love VR in general, the Oculus Rift’s next-generation virtual reality experience is one of the most popular VR available. A PC is needed for this virtual experience, and you can enjoy all that Oculus has to offer in 2160 x 1200 resolution with a 110-degree field of view.
Smartphone cases protect their favourite accessory
There are a lot of amazing smartphone cases available, and it can be a tough call picking the exact right one to suit your special someone’s personality. Kate Spade designs are huge right now and I love the Kate Spade New York Floral Fitted Hard Shell Case. It’s pretty, but it also offers you increased protection for your smartphone.
For someone who loves classic style with all the protection of a hard shell, there’s also the Under Armour Fitted Hard Shell case. If your phone hits the floor in a case like this, you shouldn’t have to worry about it shattering or getting scratched.
An e-reader or tablet for your favourite bookworm
When I walk into a book store I want to bring home all the books, and when I open up my favourite book app on my tablet, I want to surround myself with different choices.
Not only can they store all of their favourite titles right on the tablet, they can also use it to watch videos, connect to social networks, and store favourite photos. If you know they’ll just use the tablet for reading book after book, the Kobo Aura Digital E-Reader will be loved at Valentine’s Day. The 4GB on-board memory can hold an amazing 30,000 e-books.
Show you care by adding to their smart home
When someone has a smart home, they’re always excited about adding to it. There are two great smart home devices that show you really put thought into what you choose for Valentine’s Day: the Nanoleaf Auroa LED Light Panel Kit and the Click and Grow Smart Indoor Garden.
You can set the mood on Valentine’s Day with the Nanoleaf Auroa. It lets you mount colour-changing LED panels for a beautiful light show, and you can choose from 16.7-million colours or the cozy glow of candlelight.
If your loved one has a green thumb, I can’t imagine a better smart home gift than the Click and Grow Smart Indoor Garden. It will monitor the health, growth, oxygen, pesticides, and the entire life cycle of your plants via built-in sensors. All you have to do is add your plants, plug it in, add water, and watch your thumb turn green.
Those are the top 10 thoughtful Valentine’s Day gifts you can give this February 14th. I hope they help you narrow down your choices and give you some great ideas. You can find even more Valentines’ Day ideas at the Valentine’s Day Hub.
