    1. A pair of rimless, mirrored heart-shaped sunglasses with a rose gold frame, because the flame of your love is so bright, they'll obviously need shades to look at it (plus, they will also keep actual sun out of their eyes).

    The sunglasses, which are mirrored, rimless, and shaped like hearts, with rose gold wire stems and nose bridge

    Promising review: "I love these glasses, they are lightweight and super cute. I've gotten so many compliments on them, and for $10, they can't be beat. They were my favorite glasses this past spring /summer, so bought two extra pairs in case I lose or break them. They are durable, plus the pink sheen on the lens is really pretty." —GUhle

    2. A scented candle with a ceramic body and 32-hour burn time, so their home will be full of amazing smells for months beyond V-Day.

    Price: $15.89

    9. A three-pack of Baby Yoda Valentine's socks, because nothing says "love" like helping someone keep their toes warm all February. Plus, it comes with a built-in old school Valentine's Day card.

    Promising review: "My 11-year-old daughter gives this camera five stars! We purchased the pink one as a birthday present and she absolutely loves it! The color is adorable, it's easy to use, and has a selfie mirror for taking pictures with her friends. The only downside is the Instax film is a little pricey. But, overall, this is an excellent purchase that we highly recommend!" —lisaiam

    Price: $69.99 (available in six colors, film sold separately)

    11. A chocolate strawberry and champagne glass squeaky dog toy set, so you can spend V-Day celebrating the real love of your life (and keep playing with these toys way beyond February).


    Promising review: "My dogs loved these toys. Fair warning: my dogs are 15 lbs and 25 lbs, respectively and while the champagne glass was the perfect size, the strawberry was too big to fit in their mouths. It has a ball or something inside it, so it's not squishy. They carry it around by the green top instead." —Elle

    Price: $8.53

    13. A vegan Winky Lux lip stain and balm that moisturizes and turns lips a unique shade of pink, for your pal who loves whimsy but also multitasking. (The glitter inside the balm is just decorative and doesn't come off on lips, so they won't have to worry about accidentally rocking a full Lady Gaga look around the house.)


    Promising review: "Such a gorgeous lip balm—almost too pretty to use! Obviously, when you apply it, the pigment isn’t nearly as pink as the photo—it's a VERY subtle pink tint with a little shine. The taste isn’t bad, either. Ever so slightly bitter (but just don’t eat it, lol)." —Target customer

    Price: $15.99

    14. A weighed blanket with a removable cover, so you can literally give them sweeter dreams.

    The blanket, which is gray

    Promising review: "Purchased on sale for a Christmas gift and ended up buying two more for others! Perfect weight to make you feel all cozy without feeling hot. Nice that the cover is washable too. Highly recommend." —StephanieG

    Price: $42.49+ (available in 15 and 20 pounds)

    15. An eye-depuffing mask in a fun silver star pattern, because seriously, is there a better date night activity than sheet masking?

    Promising review: "This mask works WONDERS for puffy/red /dark under eye bags! Definitely adding it to my regular routine." —sophieology

    Price: $39.95

    17. A wooden Apple Watch charger stand with a touch of midcentury aesthetics, so your beloved can take better care of their favorite tech toy.

    18. An oversized faux fur heart pillow that will support their back *and* help you two cuddle on the couch long after the holiday is through.

    The pillow, which is heart-shaped and large enough to take up the entire back of a love seat, in pink

    Promising review: "This is such a gorgeous pillow! It's large, plush, and incredibly soft. Looks great on my bed!" —Targetshopper123

    Price: $20 (available in two colors)

    19. Or a square blush throw pillow dotted with tiny beaded hearts, because it's not just a piece of Valentine's Day decor, it's actually an amazing design element that could work all year round.

    Promising review: "I am obsessed with this journal. I look forward to answering the questions and I can’t wait to read back on them and compare my answers. The questions are thought provoking and allow you to provide meaningful answers." —Emily

    Price: $8.99

    21. A pair of heart-shaped, heart-print pot holders that are part retro-chic, part totally practical.

    24. An Xbox Gold Game Pass that will get your sweetie full access to all the benefits of Xbox Live Gold (how's that for romantic?).

    The Game Pass card

    Promising review: "Easy to purchase and redeem on your Microsoft account. This is by far one of the best values in gaming, even at regular price. Coupled with $1 month trial that’s offered, you can stretch this out a little further." —VOguy

    Price: $14.99+ (available with one or three month access)

    25. A set of macaron-shaped bath bombs, because unlike real macarons, these will last a long time and give their bathroom a sweet scent.

    The bath bombs, which are shaped like small, pastel-colored macarons

    Promising review: "I purchased for my daughter and she loves them. They fizz and do not cause irritation on her sensitive skin. They can break if you are too rough while opening them. But they are affordable and she has fun." —Tagred

    Price: $5

    26. A pair of cozy Minnetonka knit and suede lace-up indoor/outdoor booties, for your Valentine who always has *shockingly* cold toes (seriously, every time they put their feet on yours, it's kind of ALARMING).

    The boots in grey, with suede sides and printed fabric over the toes and on the sides of the booties

    Promising review: "Got these in gray print, really cute and warm for around the house. I wish they came in half sizes ( I would have sized up a half size), and wish they had a bit more support in foot bed (flat, little support). But good for around house and property, and for car errands. Can wear outside." —mamabear

    Price: $59.95 (available in two colors and sizes 5-11)

    27. An essential oil diffuser, because how can a bouquet of flowers compare to this bouquet of spa vibes?

    The diffuser, which is gray and shaped like a small round vase

    Promising review: "'Clarity' has a clean, soft scent, it makes the whole room smell amazing. The price is great because the scent lasts and is strong enough to add a scent to the air. Great in your home, and great as gifts." —Ss

    Price: $15

    28. A pair of geometric hanging wall planters for your honey who's balancing your relationship with their career as a full-time plant parent.

    The planters, which are geometric and light-colored, with a brass-colored frame to hang them from the wall

    Promising review: "Love them, great quality and look fantastic with my mid century mod decor." —Lv

    Price: $20+ (available in two colors)

    29. A SodaStream sparkling water maker, because the most romantic gift for a sparkling water fan is anything that gives them access to unlimited sparkling water.

    The Soda Stream, which fills one bottle of water at a time with fizz, in light blue

    Promising review: "I thought this would require power or batteries, but upon opening the box, I was pumped to find out that, nope! It's off the grid. I’m mad I didn’t buy this sooner. TBH I thought it was going to be complicated and messy, but it’s SO simple. The water is so fresh and fizzy. I drink a few bottles of sparkling water a day and it’s just so expensive and terrible for the earth to use all those plastic bottles (whether you recycle or not!) So this will be paying for itself very quickly and tastes even better. I don’t know how long the CO2 cartridge will last, but compared to the pallets of bottled fizz and time spent recycling, it’s sure to be a wash. The appliance and the bottle itself is quite beautiful too!" —Denmother

    Price: $69.99+ (available in four colors)

    30. A portable Bluetooth speaker with USB charging capability, so you can play they can play your song anywhere (Or podcasts. They're also really good for podcasts.)

    The speaker, which is small and round, in raspberry

    Promising review: "I would highly recommend because the battery lasts a long time, and it's portable and able to go anywhere. I also like how great and loud it sounds. It's also waterproof, which is perfect for when you go to pools. I love it!" —Jash C

    Price: $29.99 (available in four colors)

    31. A copy of Harry Styles's Fine Line album on limited-edition black-and-white swirl vinyl, because trust me, if you love a Styler, they will consider this incredibly useful. The album also comes with a free poster.

    The album, which has vinyl with a black-and-white marbled print

    Promising review: "The vinyl is so gorgeous, it’s pricey but well worth it—it’s my prettiest one by far. I’ve seen complaints about skipping; those are probably because of a faulty record, or more likely, a bad record player, because it didn’t skip at all for me. It played great and looked pretty. The poster was a nice surprise, too." —vinylcollector742

    Price: $34.99
