Valentine's Day is Thursday . That means you're officially late for gifts. You think: What can I give her that interests me? If you have a girlfriend or wife in your life and have no idea what to bring here, never fear! Here is a Valentine's Day Gift Guide for her. And – yell at my comrade! – You can get all these gifts on Amazon Prime, but at this point you want to pay the shipping costs the next day. (Note that CNET may receive some of the revenue from the revenue generated.)
Now you will not find any flowers or chocolates on this list ̵
Some Tips for Buying Gifts for Valentine's Day
Before we start, a few general tips:
If in doubt, buy them in black or dark gray. Even white is controversial. Please use this to literally advise everything you buy for another person.
Not cheap, especially with sweets or flowers. High quality sweets are actually a sensible Valentine's Day gift. But if you have a limited budget, check out Rick Broida'swhich offers some thoughtful alternatives that will not break the bank.
If you do not know what to buy, choose two small gift items for an expensive gift. Two gifts on the subject (such as a cocktails book and a bottle of alcohol) appear as if you would include more in the gift than just a random present. Also, do not forget that one element below is the beginning and end of your gift journey.
Know who you are with – and adjust it accordingly. All women love flowers, chocolates and scented candles – except anyone who does not. All women love long walks on the beach – except for those who prefer to ski. All women hate video games – except for those who smoke in Fortnite. You see what I'm saying: Make sure you adapt your gift ideas to them, not a generic stereotype.
Regarding the same point, remember that I have decided not to include any more sensitive items on my list, as I believe you should probably do those personal purchases with your partner. But if you do, I would be reluctant if I did not mention the woman's biggest "back massager".
If these reservations are appropriate, we come to my decisions – gift from affordable to expensive concern, I've stopped at $ 150.
Funko Pop Game of Thrones Cersei: Under $ 10
The last season of Game of Thrones is almost here and I can not think of anything else. You could also give her a Daenerys figure, but Cersei in this wild Season 6 finale would be my personal preference. Then your friend can show Cersei at work on her desk, hoping to scare anyone who tries to disturb her.
Smartwool Sleuth Socks: $ 10.36 per pair
As we get older, we learn the true truth. Socks are the best gift. However, good quality socks can be expensive, and not everyone feels comfortable spending so much on a single pair of socks. Most women need to wear no-show socks and most no-show socks are awful. They always slip off. Except smartwool socks that seem to have magical powers. I've walked over 20,000 steps through Disneyland with Smartwool socks and they've never slipped. Buy a pair for every woman you know.
Dermal Face Masks: $ 11 for a pack of 16
Buying skin care products for women is a challenge, as all people have different skin care needs. If you choose a variety package, it may try different depending on the skin care preference. These go well with a good candle or bath article.
Lego Creator Mighty Dinosaurs: $ 12
It took me years to convince my ex and mother that all I wanted for a vacation was a Lego set. Spoiler alarm: Lego sets can be compiled and displayed very well. As a kid, I felt very excluded from the Lego. But now, as an adult, I fell well in the Lego. The cool thing about Lego is the partnership with so many features that it's pretty easy to find a set in your partner's fandom. Dinosaur? War of stars? Harry Potter? Get it!
Tequila Mockingbird Cocktail Recipe Book: $ 12.33 (hardcover)
I just want to be a chic lady drinking my fancy cocktails. And maybe I will not make any of it, but I will proudly show my cocktail books on my bar cart before building up to a vodka tonic. With cocktails and cocktail accessories you can also try "themed" gift ideas. Consider a cocktail recipe book with a bottle of Bitter, a Muddler or a nice bottle of alcohol. (Or top-shelf, you do.) If she already has this, the sequel – Gone with the Gin – is also a good choice.
SOAIY Sleep Pacifier Aurora Projection LED Night Light Lamp: $ 20.59
This night light is probably my absolute favorite at Amazon. Sure, there are probably more chic and expensive versions to look at, but this affordable night light has given me so much pleasure. I live in a big city, so I do not see many stars. Sometimes it's nice to put on music and cuddle up with your partner under the glittering moving lights. Who does not love shiny things? (CNET also confirmed that I'm not a cat.)
Amzdeal Sunglasses Showcase: 27 USD
Does Your Girlfriend Have a Billion Sunglasses? In this case, she can benefit from a showcase for sunglasses. Organizing tools may not always feel like a romantic gift, but I can not tell you how hard I would faint if a guy told me, "Hey, I really like your collection of sunglasses, why do not you show them?" Besides, I never lose my sunglasses again. Oh, and these are easy to buy with cool sunglasses.
Seville Classics Shoe Rack: $ 30
Some women love shoes and some women may care less for them. However, we often own a whole range of boots, sneakers, heels, sandals, mules, flats and so on. If your wife or girlfriend's wardrobe is a bit chaotic and overflowing with shoes, this may be just what you are looking for. It's not the sexiest gift, but it's another gift you can build for her. And when you build things for women (even a simple shoe rack that took me three minutes), they seem to be useful. And the benefits are sexy. Remember.
Fjällräven Kanken Backpack: $ 68.29
Wearing material is the worst thing. And I do not know about you, but my arms are getting tired and carrying all my books, snacks, crayons and Disney Chapstick. (Do not worry, CNET has confirmed that I'm not eleven years old.) Backpacks have made a big comeback, and it's hard to make a mistake with the classic Fjällräven Kanken. I can not tell you how much easier traveling has been since buying a backpack last year.
Google Wifi: Starts at $ 99
Women also need good Wi-Fi. I finally upgraded my router a few months ago and now my entire bed has magical Wi-Fi coverage. Bonus points when you set up the router for you. (Do not get me wrong, I set up my own and it was super easy, but it's nice when people do things for you.) A single unit costs $ 99, but to cover a whole house, you need the 3 -pack ($ 249).
Chill Sack Bean Bag: $ 150
Attention! Do not buy your girlfriend a huge beanbag, at least somehow make sure that she has the damn thing somewhere! That said, bean bags are so comfortable and cozy. If you get one for your girlfriend, you can tell her to help her nap and read more. #blessed
