    46 Socially-Distanced Valentine’s Day Gifts To Send The People You Love

    TBH, nothing says "I love you" quite like sending a giant 1-pound Snickers bar directly to someone's front door.

    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.

    1. A giant 1-pound Snickers bar, because the fastest way to anyone's heart is to their stomach, and this will probably get there wayyyy faster than most.,

    Promising review: "I bought two, one for a gift and one to just joke around with. My sister loved it as she was quarantined and asked if I could bring a chocolate to her door so she could eat some candy while staying in her room. I texted her back... is a Snickers okay? And she replied YES PLEASE!! Thats when I pull out the 1LB!!!! Snickers bar put it next to her door and tell her OK. Two minutes later I hear a OMG from across the house... and a flurry of THANK YOU! OMG! texts. Also I ate half of mine over like four days and yeah it's a Snickers so pretty good." —Marco

    2. A pair of glowing light saber chopsticks to bring balance to the Force *and* to their sushi — whether they're repping the dark side or the light.

    Emma Lord / BuzzFeed, Amazon

    As you can see from the above GIF, I bought these for myself, and I love them to pieces. TBH, I use them as decor every bit as much as I use them to eat. Sometimes I just keep them in my work area to light them up during the day to feel fancy. They toggle back and forth between a bunch of different colors, like red, blue, yellow, purple, and multicolor, so you can either make them match *or* have a red and blue one together and bring ~balance~ to the Force.

    Promising review: "I purchased these for a friend's birthday present (he is a sushi waiter) and these are flippin' AMAZING. I ordered two sets by mistake, but I am totally keeping the second pair for another gift (or for myself!). These are sure to be great conversation pieces and attention-getters. Way to go!" —T. Redwood

    Get two pairs from Amazon for $14.97.

    3. A "You're My Person" candle, so when they light it up on Valentine's Day, you can pull a full Bridgerton and tell them, "I burn for you."

    A "you're my person" labeled purple candle

    Evil Queen is a Los Angeles-based, woman-owned business that specializes in handmade candles. Each candle is made with vegan ingredients, cotton wicks, and has an over 50 hour burn time.

    The "You're My Person" candle smells like strawberries, cream, and heart eyes 😍.

    Get it from Evil Queen for $20.

    4. Plus a rose gold rechargeable electric lighter they can use to replace all their old gas ones. This one is not only chic as heck, but completely flameless, and made with a long stem so they can use it to light gas burners and larger candles.

    Emma Lord/BuzzFeed

    This also comes in other pretty colors, but I am especially partial to this one because I bought it for my parents (their kitchen is entirely pink and one of my favorite places on Earth), and this was SO EASY to use — not to mention super safe! I'm a big weenie about fire (lol, self-preservation) so I've always stuck to extended arm gas lighters, but this is much better for the environment (plus cuter), so I feel a lot better about using it.

    Promising review: "Wow. This thing is amazing. Small and so easy to use. My husband kept saying it won’t actually light anything and was blown away when it did. We lit candles and paper to use as tinder with absolutely no effort. No fuel needed. Just a quick recharging. And no waste in throwing away those huge and never easy to use butane sticks. Love love it. Easy buying process so I would recommend everyone buy one." —Diane Bold

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in five colors).

    5. A Geekey multitool for the Valentine who considers themselves the resident "fix-it" — this gives them over a dozen *more* ways to do just that.

    A small steel key-shaped tool with various grooves and measurements
    The Grommet

    This looks impressive at first glance, but functions as *deep breath* a coring tip, serrated edge, can opener, wire stripper, smoking pipe, file, imperial and metric ruler, protractor, bottle opener, multi-head fit driver, lanyard hole, bike spoke key, screw driver tip, wrench, *and* bit driver all at once. In short ... it is a whole lot.

    Promising review: Beautifully made piece out of, appropriately, 420 Stainless Steel. As a machinist, I certainly appreciate the challenges of machining stainless. Five stars on the engineering and design. These types of tools (including this one) are only so practical for a few of their features usually, but this one will be with me all the time!" —Watt

    Get it from The Grommet for $22.95 or Amazon for $22.99.

    6. A five-year One Line A Day journal so when you finally get to catch up on Zoom each week, they'll have a lil' cheat sheet of all the happy memories they want to fill you in on.

    Katy Herman/BuzzFeed

    The book comes with 365 pages, each of which has lines for five days, so they'll write on the same page each year when the date comes around again. It's a really cool way to reflect on their ~journey~ — kind of like those "this time last year!" things your phone or Facebook does, except they're the ones in control of what gets written and saved.

    Promising review: "This was given to us as a gift. Instantly, my husband who loves spice and BBQ loved it on his burgers. Two weeks ago bought it again for my Dad for his birthday, they grilled with it on pork and next day the rub with fish, loved it so much my aunt requested some. You get the point, sent her the gift packet and got a text love!" —SEH

    Get it from Amazon for $28.98 (also available in a Hot version).

    Promising review: "I never write reviews but thought I should after buying this funny tortilla blanket! Very surprised. It's a lightweight blanket that's still very fluffy and super cozy. I think it's perfect. Washed it and still super soft. No pilling but i washed and dried it alone. It's holding up well, both in feel and in shape. The trim is sewed on well, so no problem there either. This is the BEST purchase I have ever made. I’m recommending this to everyone I know!" —Amazon Customer

    Two models with the black bracelets on their wrists

    So basically, you can set up little codes for yourself — maybe blue is "I miss you," pink is "call me when you get a chance," purple is "I love you."

    Promising review: "My love is being deployed across seas to Kuwait for the Army and we both know that there aren't going to be too many times where we are able to chat on the phone or Skype/FaceTime each other with the time change and her schedule over there. I wanted to find something that would keep us close even though we are going to be so far away. These are so awesome. The touches are vibrant and every time I receive one from her, a huge smile comes across my face. It's a simple, yet amazing way to let your significant other know that you're thinking about them. You don't need wifi, just a bluetooth connection to your phone. Thank you Bond for keeping us close. PS. Our 15-month-old loves feeling the touches and loves sending his mom touches as well." —Amazon Customer

These will work perfectly for filling solid perfumes and giving out as stocking stuffer gifts as I don't have to worry about it being a snug fit/lid falling off. I imagine these would also be great for pretend food for kids' play-sets or for a kid's trinket box. Overall I love them, love their feel, love the colors and am very happy." —Mary

    An AirPods case that looks like a jar of Nutella

    Promising review: "The minute I opened the package I knew I made the right choice. This case is thick and well-made. I get so frustrated when my case falls and the AirBuds go in every direction. Couple of days ago the left ear fell out the case and a car ran over it. That cost me $69+ so I decided to take care of that issue and get a case. I purposely dropped it after I put the case in and everything was in tact.. I’m happy !!" —Karen

Now I have fourt tubes in different scents and I regret nothing. Even my husband is in love with the original and the mint!

    28. A personalized barware crate so they can basically have their own at-home brewery, complete with custom pint glasses and bottle opener. The most fun bit, though, is that they genuinely have to pry open the sealed wooden crate with a crow bar — a big gifting mood if there ever were one.

    Reviewer photo of some of the cards, which include questions like "What are you too hard on yourself for?" and "What five things do you enjoy doing with me?"

    Promising review: "After 30 years with my spouse, we didn’t really talk much anymore. It was the usual what work junk happened, what was on the schedule, what we needed from the store, and what was on our phones. I am so grateful I stumbled on these cards. I gave them and a puzzle to my husband for Christmas. I think he thought it was corny, until we started. I started off telling him how much I miss conversation with him and that I love him and I would like to date him again. It has been wonderful to sit and work on the puzzle, with some low music on in the background, TALK and share a glass of wine together. We are loving these cards!" —KTB

    Plus, it's teensy for storing and cleans with a quick stream of hot running water! We love a convenient appliance!!

    Promising review: "I’m a barista at Starbucks so obviously I know how I like my coffee. For a while I was using an immersion blender to froth my milk for my morning cup of coffee but it just wasn’t doing what I wanted it to do. I finally bought this frother and I’m so so happy with it!! It doesn’t need to be plugged in so it takes up way less space. It is a lot quieter than the blender, and I can use any size cup I want because the frother is so small. Not only can I heat up my milk for a hot coffee, but I can also use it just the same with cold milk for my iced coffee!! Highly recommend this product!!" —Heather Michael

    Two cartons of banana pudding and two cupcakes with Valentine's Day decorations on them

    Psst — New Yorker with extremely high baked good standards here. The banana pudding from Magnolia deserves all the hype it gets. I have walked three miles in THUNDERSNOW to obtain it. I (almost) wish I were kidding.

    Promising review: "First of all, it's DELICIOUS, my cousin sent it to us originally and we fell in love, and I'm not really a big banana fan but I WAS WOWED by Magnolia's Banana Pudding, now I send it as gifts. I've seen it brighten people's day — to get something so magnificent delivered to their door as a SURPRISE it's almost as much fun giving it as it is to receive it, I have NEVER been disappointed by any item Magnolia bakes." —James C.

They don't even need to figure out how to make donuts — this machine will take store bought brownie, muffin, and cake mix just fine.

    Not only is it size-adjustable to accommodate different tubs, it comes equipped with a wineglass holder, edges that safely prop up a book or tablet, a candle holder, and extra space for whatever else their cozy heart desires.

    Promising review: "When I placed my order for this tray I looked at the pics but did not realize how really cool this piece is. The ability to change the size is great, but I just love the different trays that are removable as well as the ability to put my phone and a Kindle in 'safe' areas of the tray. I found a perfect place for my TV remote should I want to watch TV and not read. I just got it and used it last night but it appears to be well-made, balanced, and offers versatility for the things you may want at your fingertips when taking a luxurious bath!" —SindiMcG

    43. A braided leather USB bracelet that's (gasp) secretly also an iPhone charging cord, so they can tug it off to FaceTime you even when their battery is trying its best to die.


    Promising review: "I usually have every sort of cable that I could possibly need when I'm at work, but I don't usually carry one on my person when I'm elsewhere. It looks sharp and isn't obviously a cable, but it's always available should you need it. It's compatible with Apple Carplay, and when plugged into a computer it will function like a default Apple cable. I am incredibly happy with it and would recommend it to anyone who might ask." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in three sizes and three colors).

    44. An Amazon Echo Show 5 enabled with a camera screen for calls, so you can keep all the people in your heart connected for some socially distanced cross-country chats.

    Similar to other Alexa-enabled devices, the Echo Show 5 responds to voice commands and can be synced with Audible, Amazon Music, Amazon Video, and other apps and programs like Spotify, iTunes, and NPR.

    Promising review: "I bought these for my mother, brother's family and mine for Christmas. Figured it was a quick way to communicate between Michigan and Indiana where everyone is spread out over. Usage was so-so the first few months, but now it's at least once a day. Thank you for coming up with such a simple product that does so much to keep my family connected face-to-face in these times!" —mike

    45. A Bluetooth-enabled record player you can pair with a record that means something to both of you, whether it's a concert date you went on or the album that has your ~couple song~ on it.

    Promising review: "This thing is great! The output is great. Very loud and clear with no distortion. I put the first record on it this morning and the audio quality and overall functionality is awesome. It also makes a great bluetooth speaker as well. The briefcase design makes it great for moving it room to room or traveling places with it. I highly recommend this turntable to both the beginner who's looking to get into vinyl and even the hardcore collector that's just looking for something more portable with some good sound!" —D.

    Get it from Amazon for $44.98+ (available in 27 colors).

    46. A smart LED lightbulb set they can sync with home devices like Alexa and Google Assistant (or just Bluetooth!) to finally get light at their *precise* Zoom happy hour aesthetic, whether it's a group hang with their friends or a romantic one-on-one all lit up in red.


    Promising review: "I was hoping that when I bought this smart bulb that the colors would be bright and they are and I love it. It works seamlessly with my Google Home Mini and I can also tell it what color I'd like it. I am a big fan of Smart bulbs since getting my first C by GE as a Christmas gift. I currently now have ten C by GE bulbs in my home and this is the first color one." —Kis'

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $49.04 (or $61.03 with the smart plug included).
