Valentine’s Day presents that she truly desires to obtain

This is not the year for short breaks, romantic restaurant dinners, or grandeur. But that’s not a free ticket to traditional Valentine’s Day gifts like chocolates, wine and roses. Not that any woman would say no to them, but just a little bit of effort and creativity can go a lot further – and those you love will feel much more valued.

Whether you’ve been given the go-ahead for giving or have waited until the last minute, skip cheesy heart patterns and pink and red hues for these practical, but cool gifts for Valentine’s Day, we guarantee your girlfriend, wife, mother, girlfriend (really everyone )) is used all year round.

Valentine’s Day gifts that she would actually like to receive this year

1. Vertical bath salts

Treat her to a spa experience at home with CBD-infused bath salts. The CBD won’t get you high, but it will relieve pain, smooth skin, and – along with mineral-rich Dead Sea salts and soothing essential oils like lemongrass, clary sage, and ginger – create an environment so cold it could feel as if she had a transcendental experience.

2. Ombraz Leggero Armless Sunglasses

Swap the standard colors of your adventure friend for these armless sunglasses. Ombraz uses a built-in elastic cord safety system to keep them from sliding or jumping around even during the most aggressive activities. Even better, the polarized lenses are scratch-resistant and basically flat, so they won’t be damaged if they’re carelessly tossed into a package.

5. Yaasa weighted blanket

Weighted blankets mimic the feeling of being hugged, held, or wrapped – making them the perfect gift for her when you are not around. That extra weight also helps calm the nervous system, which anyone who made it through 2020 will appreciate. Just remember, the next time she gets her first dibs, the news makes you both take cover.

If sleeping bag coats were all the rage in 2020, 2021 will be the year of sleeping bag shoes. Whether she’s wearing these pouffe boots on a winter camping trip or just on a brewery terrace in February, she’ll love how the NASA-approved insulation protects against the elements (even when it’s wet!)

Maybe you won’t snuggle up around a romantic campfire in the woods or even on a hotel terrace and roast S’Mores, but you can bring the fire indoors with this table fire. It’s made of a cement material that won’t overheat or disintegrate, and since it uses isopropyl alcohol to burn, it doesn’t cover the house with soot. Win win!
