    43 Best Romantic Gifts For Valentine's Day

    I've transformed into a warm pile of goo after just thinking about giving these beautiful items away as gifts.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A ceramic vase because you don't need a reason to give them flowers — you just love the way their face lights up every time you walk in with a new bouquet. Now, they won't have to display it in a cracked mason jar!

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "This is my favorite vase! It shipped well, and I love the colors." —Mgund

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $20 (available in three colors).

    2. Or a dried bouquet that'll last for as long as your love for them will: Forever. I have a dried bouquet that looks and smells as beautiful as the day I got it three years ago!

    Get it from Shropshire Petals on Etsy for $31.42+.

    3. 25 messages in a bottle, so they can get a dose of love every day of the year. Each capsule contains a tiny piece of paper to share the way you feel about them. A friend gifted me something similar a few years ago, and I still read the notes whenever I need a bit of a boost.

    The corked bottle holding the blue capsules with a tag that says Love 100%

    Promising review: "Understand that this item is a labor of love — you will have to take each capsule apart, unscroll each scrap of paper, come up with each message, roll it back up, slip the metal ring back onto each little scroll, and reassemble each capsule. It takes time, but they will cherish it, the work you put in, and the thoughts you express. For the messages, I found it helpful to search the internet for 'one-line romantic quotes' to get ideas." —JRinGeorgia

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in five colors and two sizes).

    4. A heart-shaped plant that couldn't possibly grow as fast as your love for them does. Hoyas are very low-maintenance succulents, so it'll be tough for even those with the blackest of thumbs to kill them.

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $69 (available in five colors).

    12. A book of poems if you sometimes struggle to find the words to explain your feelings. Don't worry — reading Mary Oliver won't feel like taking a poetry class. She puts everything there is to say in the simplest of terms.

    National Bestseller Felicity: Poems by Mary Oliver Winner of the Pulitzer Prize
    Penguin Randomhouse

    In one of the poems, she writes, "I did think, let’s go about this slowly. / This is important. This should take / some really deep thought. We should take / small thoughtful steps. / But, bless us, we didn’t." I'm not crying, you're crying!!!!

    Get it from Bookshop for $14.72+ (originally $16, available in two formats).

    The Lucid body pillow

    Promising review: "I can’t say enough good things about this pillow. I was a little hesitant because of the price, but now I know that it’s totally worth it! It is insanely comfortable and has actually helped me sleep better. It plays a big part when it comes to maintaining my posture when sleeping on my side. I wake up without any aches or pains.

    A variety of Riedel wine glasses and a decanter

    Promising review: "I've had the white wineglasses in this series for years and love them. I recently started drinking red wine, so I added these to my collection. The size is wonderful because I have plenty of room to swirl the wine and allow it to breathe. The glass is simple but elegant, and the crystal is so clear." —cb007

    Get it from Target for $39.99.

    20. Or a nine-piece mixologist bar set if they prefer to drink the stronger stuff. Plus, experimenting with cocktails will make for a really fun indoor activity for the two of you!

    The bath bomb gift set
    Bubbly Belle / Via

    Promising review: "I have been using bath bombs for years. I've used cheap brands, drugstore brands, and luxury brands, but this box gives all of them a run for the money! The packaging was super cute and totally giftable. I was really impressed at the quality of the bath bomb itself, and I love that they contain essential oils. I have been really stressed lately and have enjoyed a bath nearly every night for the past week. These bombs gave me the most serene experience, and they're at least double the size of ones I've used before. At about $2 per bomb, this set comes at a great price. I will definitely purchase this box again." —Heather H.

    Get it from Amazon for $24.97+ (available in two pack sizes).

    27. Powerbeats Pro true wireless headphones, so they can share their favorite tunes with you while you're walking to your next adventure together. I guarantee you'll get bonus points if you pair the gift with a playlist.

    Two round cake pans, a cookie sheet, a muffin tin, a loaf pan, and a rectangular cake pan

    Promising review: "I really like this bakeware set! It is heavy, durable, and is easy to clean. My old baking set was hard to clean, flimsy, and would leave me with scorched, unevenly cooked food. From muffins to banana bread, everything I have made on this bakeware set has come out evenly baked. I was so happy to donate my old set to a thrift store and enjoy this nice set!" —Jenna Ace

    Get it from Amazon for $74.99.

    30. A body oil to use the next time you give them a massage. Nothing will make them relax faster than when you rub their sore muscles with this soothing concoction.

    Promising review: "I'd give this product five stars across the board. Katrina was great to work with! I asked for several changes, and she was willing to work with me on all of them. When the print was damaged in shipping, Katrina sent a new print out to me in no time. I couldn't be happier with the results or the experience. I strongly recommend this map." —Drew

    Get it from HappyPlaceArt on Etsy for $30+ (available in 32 styles and 28 formats).

It's the same price as a lightning cable, and I don't have to worry about plugging it in or wearing it out. Whenever I'm not using my phone, I place it on the vertical stand to charge where I can easily see notifications while I work. I love the simple, matte-black finish and that the indicator light lets you know when it is charging and when it is not. I can't say enough about how amazing and convenient this charger is." —Vivek

    40. A vanity mirror because you want them to be able to enjoy staring at their face as much as you do.

    The light-up mirror with nine bulbs in the silver color

    Promising review: "This mirror is awesome. I had one of those cheap lighted, fold-out plastic mirrors for my vanity but was tired of changing batteries. This plug-in mirror is much bigger, and I can sit up straight to apply makeup. The light has adjustable settings for color and brightness that can be switched with the touch of a button. The mirror swivels which is nice for applying eye makeup when you need just the right angle. It is metal and won't tip over as easily as plastic mirrors. It came with a magnifying mirror that suctions to the larger rectangle mirror which was a nice, little surprise." —Danna Russell

    Get it from Amazon for $54.99 (available in three colors).

    41. A pair of custom socks with their pup’s face on them because you're pretty sure they love their fur baby more than they love you. It's OK because you love Bosco an inappropriate amount as well.

    43. A silk sleep mask because you want to make sure they get some much-needed rest. Plus, you've been talking about spicing things up. 😉

    A model wearing the eye mask in black

    Promising review: "I have probably purchased two-dozen sleep masks over the years, some of which were very expensive, and I didn't like any of them. This one is perfect! It is unbelievably comfortable: It is light as a feather, is very soft on the delicate skin around the eyes, and blocks out all light which is essential when I'm recovering from a migraine. The elastic band is so soft and doesn't give me a headache or leave indentations in my hair like so many others did. I have purchased several of them for myself and am now purchasing them as gifts for people who have trouble sleeping." —CinderellaPeach

    Get it from Amazon for $9.89+ (available in five colors).
