Ahh, Valentine's Day...it's the most romantic 24 hours of the entire year—besides, you know, your upcoming wedding day, the day you got engaged, and your anniversary. Okay, so maybe it's not THE most romantic day of the year, but it's certainly up there—and definitely worth celebrating, especially with some unique Valentine's Day gift ideas for her!
Even if you and your partner aren't usually big on the holiday of red roses and chocolate truffles, it wouldn't hurt to let Cupid have his way this time around. After all, if there's one Valentine's Day you'll remember years from now, when you and your sweetie have aged like fine whisky and wine, it'll be this one—when you're engaged to the love of your life, planning your future (and wedding!) together.
Plus, let's be real here: With the stress of wedding planning probably taking over your life (guest lists, budgets, in-laws, ughh...), you and your fiancé need a night to celebrate the two of you. No color palette talk or seating chart discussions. Just you and your S.O.
Oh, and presents. Can't forget the presents.
Sure, your love (and that engagement bling) is gift enough, but a pretty present or to-die-for trinket is bound to make her V-Day extra special. If you think Valentine's gifts are all eye roll–worthy clichés, think again! We've rounded up the coolest, chicest, and sweetest Valentine's Day gift ideas for her that your love is sure to, well, love.
Looking to pamper your beauty-obsessed bride? She'll fall head over heels for a heart-infused tube of lipstick. Taking on life with a cooking connoisseur? Indulge her kitchenware whims with a Valentine's Day-themed casserole dish (it's more romantic than it sounds, we promise!). Engaged to a sweetheart with a sweet tooth? Nail the gifting game on the head, thanks to chocolate candies from a famed French confectionary (in the prettiest packaging). No matter her speed this February 14, we found the best picks to satisfy your dearest Valentine in style.
And because you're busy planning for an expensive little thing called your wedding, we've covered a wide array of price points (seriously, we found amazing presents starting at only $8.95!) to satisfy every budget. Just call us Cupid!
