Valentine’s Day Gift Guide

Valentine’s Day Gift Guide

This year Mr. LouiseMarie and I are celebrating 14 days of love.  Starting on February 1st, we will alternate days and do something loving/romantic for the other.  These are going to be small gestures with more thought than just a gift.  You can find some of those ideas here.   However, I know some of you are still searching for something unique for your honey.  So, as promised, I have put together this Valentine’s Day gift guide to help you get just the right thing.

Hopefully one of these gift ideas will be perfect for you.  So, let’s get right to it.Date Night Bucket List is a great Valentine's Day gift.This Date Night Bucket list gives you ideas for  date night activities.  As you complete each date, you write the date on the back of each  stick.  You can find it here.

Spinning Heart Message Box is a great gift for Valentine's Day.

I LOVE this gift idea.  I would love to get this, and I would love to give it.  It’s not often that you find something that’s truly different.  This spinning heart box holds a mirrored surface on the inside.  The gift giver is able to write a “love note” via the app and send it to the box, wherever it is.  When the box gets the message, the heart starts to spin.  That’s the cue for the giftee to open the box and receive their love note.  It’s an old-fashioned love note in a new digital world!    Of course, it’s only really cool if the giver remembers to send more than one note, right?  This is perfect for long-distance relationships or if one of you travels a lot.


A compass to tell your Valentine you'd be lost without them is a perfect gift for Valentine's Day.

I can imagine the sweetest note about how you would be “lost” without your Valentine, or how they are always “home” to you.  So sweet, right?  You can find that here.


These gummy bears would be a perfect Valentine's Day gift for your Valentine.









How about bourbon bears for your guy?  Or maybe she’d like champagne bears?  Whatever your Valentine  likes,  you can find them here.  And if these aren’t quite the right thing, there are plenty of other options at Sugarfina.


A Birchbox subscription for your Valentine would be a great Valentine's gift.I’ve mentioned before, here, that a subscription box would make a great gift.  Birchbox has subscriptions for men and women.  Other subscription boxes include, socks, beers, wines, gaming, sweet treats…you name it, and you can find it.

This is a set of 52 date night idea cards.  These would have to be given with a promise of a date night each week, of course.  You can find them here.

A gold print of the sound wave as you say a sweet nothing to your Valentine make a great Valentine's Day gift.

Okay, I admit that this next one is not a traditional gift, but I bet some of you know someone who would love this exact gift.  Any Game of Thrones fans out there?  This is for you.An out of the box Valentine's Day gift.

Flowers are a great Valentines Day gift.

And just because I saw this and thought, this is such a guy gift, I have to share this idea.  These floating speakers would no doubt make someone happy.  You know he’d love it, right?  Click here to buy these.

Yep…lightbulbs.  I know Mr. LouiseMarie would love to have some smart lightbulbs to automate the lights at home.  You can find a whole kit here.  I will admit, these are not what I would think of as a good, romantic gift.  However, if you lean more towards the practical, these would be a good option.  If you want other ideas to make your home a smart home, you can find other options here.
