1. CBD Bath Bombs
Baths are romantic, warm, sensual experiences alone, or with a partner. Take the experience to the next level by giving your sweetie some CBD infused bath bombs to relax them from head-to-toe. CBD can also act as an aphrodisiac, especially if your partner is prone to anxiety, so you’re sure to keep the romance going all evening long.
Where To Find Them:
2. A Luxury Robe
Whether you go for silk, cotton, lace, or a plush spa robe, your valentine is sure to feel loved up in a luxury robe. Not only are you communicating that you want them to be comfortable, you’re also saying that you have been thinking about their naked body. Although this is one of those romantic Valentine’s Day gifts that is extremely practically, you and your baby will both swoon at the easy access…
Get The Look:
3. Truffle Oil
For the sensual foodie, the most romantic Valentine’s Day gifts are always gourmet culinary ingredients. Nothing says romance quite like a bottle of truffle oil, which isn’t all that expensive, but still isn’t something that most kitchens keep in stock. The earthy, smooth flavor adds elegance to mushrooms, cream sauces, and so many more mouth-watering dishes, like pizza.
Where To Get Some:
4. Specialty Spices
This is another practical gift that all foodies will love, but it is also a romantic and accessible gift for sweethearts of many different cooking levels. You might not realize what an impact the quality of your spices have on the success of your cooking until you try the best of the best. From curries to pasta to cookies, get your love a real treat for their taste buds by upgrading their spice game.
Where To Get Them:
5. Anti-Fatigue Foam Mat
This might not seem like a romantic Valentine’s Day gift at first, but believe me when I say romance is rooted in thinking of someone every day fondly. Giving your honey a foam, anti-fatigue mat for their kitchen floor means that every single time they cook or wash dishes they will be thanking you in their minds for the cushion under their feet. No one loves doing dishes, but you know what everyone does love? Standing on a foam mat.
Where To Get One:
6. A Mani-Pedi
Whether your partner loves being pampered or you love seeing their cute toes getting some love, a mani-pedi combo is sure to be appreciated. Even for those who don’t want paint on their nails, it’s nice to have a little bit of luxury once in a while, and the added color is always an option. Treat your pumpkin pie to a DIY mani-pedi experience if you’re confident, or send them to the professionals so they can indulge in some self-care on you.
Check out your local beauty salons for gift cards! Better yet, ask for recommendations, or purchase one from the salon they already go to. You don’t want to send them to a bad salon, after all.
7. Handmade Candles
Okay, they don’t have to be handmade to be a good gift, but how much more romantic is it if they are? Handmade candles also have a cute lumpiness to them, which is so ridiculously endearing coming from your cutie. The kit below is for rolled candles as opposed to dipped, so they will take you way less time to make! If this DIY is still too much for you, you could also give them the candle making kit…
Where To Start:
8. Pre-Paid Pottery Lessons
If your teddy bear likes making stuff and has been telling you for ages that they want to try a new hobby, pottery lessons will make incredibly romantic Valentine’s Day gifts. Making pottery is a messy, earthy, sensual experience that will relax and renew your romantic counterpart, and give them some much needed time for self-care. Plus, you might get a handmade mug out of it the next holiday that comes around.
Check out your local pottery studios for upcoming classes and sessions!
9. A Treat They Crave
Sometimes all you want is some movie theatre popcorn, a buttery mall pretzel, those liquid cheese nachos, or any number of novelty, crave-worthy snacks. While these things aren’t something your angel eats all the time, you know that when they want it, it’s the only thing that will make them happy. Although not everyone thinks it’s romantic to have your favorite snacks delivered to your door, there are some of us who know that this is a sure-fire way to spark romance.
Your bae might not like these kinds of salty snacks, but you could always pick up their favorite vegan, matcha cheesecake to make them swoon instead. If you’re planning to stay in this year, or if you execute this plan long distance, your gesture will feel all the more romantic and special.
You know where to go!
10. New Shoes
This one is for the gift-givers whose budget is a little higher this year. If you know your significant other likes to shop, or if they value quality things, knock their socks off by taking them to a shoe store you know they love or to a department store where they’re sure to find something they like. It’s up to them if they want to be practical in their selection, or not.
Yes, you will have to wait while they try things on, and yes, you will have to give your opinion, but of all the romantic Valentine’s Day gifts you could be giving, this one includes a physical gift and some quality time. Plus, you know they’ll walk away with something they like, so you won’t actually have to choose.
11. Artisan Perfume
Romance is all about the senses, and scent is one of the most sensual perceptions. The folks at 2 Note create incredible, artisan perfumes and oils sure to make your prince or princess feel like royalty. Their ethos is that perfume should be comprised of different, harmonious notes like music, although there is certainly nothing wrong with a little bit of dissonance either. The small batches ensure you’re gifting with great quality, and the transparency about the ‘notes’ contained in each product will help you choose the best of the best.

12. A Jasmine Plant
As I just mentioned, scents are very sensual and make romantic Valentine’s Day gifts when done just right. For your very own Adam or Eve, help create a Garden of Eden with the incredible scent of jasmine. Jasmine plants aren’t so hard to care for, and the intoxicating floral scent of the blooms is such a treat! Jasmine happens to be an aphrodisiac, but if you can’t find a jasmine plant, there are other lovely blooming houseplants you could choose instead.
Head to your local garden center to pick up a jasmine plant, or for recommendations based on what they have! You can also find houseplants at Lowe’s or the Home Depot.
13. Sex Toys
There are some filthy animals out there who find straightforwardness and sex-positive gifts extremely romantic. If this is you and your sugar, get them a new vibe, a cock ring, handcuffs, a blindfold, a bit, a whip, a sex swing, butt plugs, restraints, a harness, a strap on, or whatever else you want to bring on the romance so you can dick down. Romantic Valentine’s Day gifts are always, always about what the recipient will swoon over, and that’s the most important thing.
Snag A Kit:
14. Silk Pillowcases
Silk pillowcases are supposed to be better for your hair and your skin, but they also feel incredible to the touch. Not only will a silk pillowcase reduce bedhead for your honey bee, but it’ll also be an incredibly romantic way to show you care. For the skincare fiends and beauty lovers, a silk pillowcase has probably been on their list for a while, so you’re really coming in with a win on this one. Turn your gift up a notch by buying a matching pair, or a whole set of sheets!
Slip Into Affordable Silk:
15. An Elixir
Tinctures are fun, potion-like ways to be romantic on Valentine’s Day. Plus, having something magical like an elixir will make your little cupcake feel super special. Although there are some tinctures that are specifically concocted to be aphrodisiac potions, there are all sorts of elixirs out there for all varieties of romance.
Try the love potion featured below for romantic, sexy delights. Try this one for grace, courage and kinship because romance can be recognizing someone is struggling. Check out this one for deep-healing and radiant protection because emotional tenderness and care can be very romantic as well.
