Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching and, if you’re anything like me, I want this one to be special.
Unfortunately, my significant other and I had to spend our first ever Valentine’s Day together sick in bed, right before quarantine started, so we never got to celebrate that special day.
This year, I want to make it extra special and that means getting something that they will never forget.
Below, I have included 11 thoughtful and unique Valentine’s Day gift ideas to get for your significant other.
Let’s make this Valentine’s Day extra special!
1. Paint by Numbers
My significant other first saw this idea on TikTok after another couple had gotten it for their anniversary. Because we were on a budget for your recent anniversary, we decided to get a Paint by Numbers canvas and it was one of the best ideas we have had!
This makes for the perfect activity to just sit and enjoy each other’s company. It takes a while, but that just means that the special day gets extended!
And, when you’re done, you will have a memory to cherish forever!
2. Star Map
If you have been keeping up with the trends, the star maps have become increasingly popular, and I can understand why.
You can get a star map for any occasion- the day you met, your first date, your engagement date, wedding day, etc.
It is a beautiful piece to have in your home together and it differs from the typical group photos of you two together!
3. Custom Underwear
I first saw this idea on Pinterest years ago and thought it was the most perfect Valentine’s day gift for your significant other.
Valentine’s Day tends to represent an intimate and special evening with your significant other and gifting them custom underwear can be a great reminder of the special evening you guys had together.
And it makes for a fun secret between the two of you when they are wearing them.
A great gift idea, especially for couples in a long-distance relationship, is to get a LoveBox. You can let them know when you are thinking of them and how much they mean to you from miles away.
This is a great way to communicate with your significant other, that’s different than texting or calling, especially for those whose love language is Words of Affirmation!
Get it shipped to their house and celebrate the day together through your LoveBox!
5. Custom Blanket
If you and your significant other are the type to cuddle up continuously, then this is the perfect gift for the both of you!
You can put pictures of the two of you together, a picture of a handwritten letter by you, or just pictures of yourself for them to remember you always.
No matter what you decide to put on the blanket, just make sure it’s big enough for the both of you!
6. The 5 Senses Gifts
If you want to get your s/o multiple gifts that they would like, but don’t know where to start, you can get them 5 gifts, one for each sense- sight, smell, sound, touch, taste. Below I have included some examples for each sense.
- picture frame with a picture of you two
- picture book
- a movie
- playlist of songs on CD
- their favorite music album
- massage oil
- favorite snacks
- favorite drinks
- reservations to a restaurant
7. Custom Puzzle
Another great bonding activity is to order a custom puzzle made from a picture of the two of you.
The picture can be anything from a picture from your first date, your wedding day, the proposal, or just a picture that the two of you love.
You can keep this to do whenever you want to do a free bonding activity, or you can frame it and hang it in your home! Either way, this is a great idea to spend some special time together on Valentine’s Day.
8. Custom Hoodie
It’s no lie that we all love snuggly clothes and stealing our significant other’s clothes. One way to create something for the both of you is to order a custom hoodie with a picture of the both of you.
The picture can either be an iron-on that you create yourself or an embroidered picture that you can order online!
And, who knows, they might just let you borrow it 😉
9. Custom Phone Case
One way for your significant other to remind themselves of the love they have for you is to get them a custom phone case with picture(s) of your relationship.
This is another great idea for long-distance couples that need those quick reminders of the love that exists not too far away.
10. Build-A-Bear with a Voice Recording
As long as Build-a-bear is open, you can go into the store and make them a special object that will remind them of your love for each other. To make it extra special, you can include a special voice recording in the bear so they never forget your voice.
This is a great gift that will last forever.
11. Custom Pillow
Another great idea for both long-distance couples and non-long-distance couples is to get a custom pillow made with either a picture of you for them to hold when you’re not there, or a picture of each other for them to remember that you are there for them no matter what.
No matter what you get your significant other, it is important to remember each other on this special day and celebrate your love.
