a ficus ruby from easyplant, from our valentine's day gift guide
Easyplant, Ficus Ruby — $189.00

Their brilliant planters make it so all you have to do is fill a hidden reservoir with water once a month and let your plant baby’s roots drink up as much as they need. If you’re constantly fretting over whether you’re giving your plants too much (or too little) love, this beautiful red and green ficus ruby—and the added peace of mind—will make a great gift. And if the ficus is too big, there’s also a smaller pink aglaonema ($49) that basically screams “I love you!”

Whether for sweating or for lounging, there is no such thing as having too many leggings. This pair from Alo feels like a second skin, so they are perfect for curling up on the couch for a solo movie date.

edree the loulou styler, from our valentine's day gift guide
Edreé, The Loulou — $149.00

Is hair a love language? Perhaps for some. If you’re hoping to upgrade your styling tools, look no further than the new, woman-owned California brand Edreé. Their two-in-one styler (called The Loulou) uses titanium and tiny cool-shot air vents to create safe and long-lasting styles. We tried it, and we loved it, especially because the 360-degree swivel cord made curling a breeze. Also, the packaging and the design make this a beautiful gift (and the price is relatively affordable compared to other multi-use styling tools we’ve reviewed).

Jewelry Gifts

Aivia magnetic chain, from our valentine's day gift guide
Aivia, Chain With Magnetic Clasp — $125.00

Aivia’s gorgeous pieces are designed to be versatile and compact. We love this necklace because the magnetic hexagon clasp means you can style the 32-inch box chain in a variety of lengths (think of it as several necklaces in one!). Choose from gold- or white-rhodium plating.

aurate vintage ring, from our valentine's day gift guide
Photo: Aurate
Aurate, Vintage Emerald Cut Ring — $200.00

initials necklace from etsy, valentine's day gift guide
Gold Hill, Initial Necklace — $15.00

Originally $25, now $15

This sweet initial necklace is a subtle yet sincere display of affection. You can add up to nine letters and choose from a variety of metals (such as 14 karat gold-plated or sterling silver) and chain lengths. No judgement if you wind up going with your pet’s initials—we definitely did that.

Other Valentine's Day Gift Ideas

If you're shopping for your S/O and a material gift isn't the vibe this Valentine's Day, consider an IOU-voucher or a gift card. Maybe they'd love a massage. Or perhaps they'd prefer an activity you can do together, like a cooking class through Cozymeal, which lets you search for and book culinary experiences in your area. And if spending any cash at all on Valentine's Day just isn't in the cards this year, don't underestimate the power of quality time. A board-game date night or an evening alone cuddled up with your favorite movie are both completely legitimate ways to celebrate love on February 14th.

But wait, there's more!
