A Taylor Swift poster with a unique code that’ll give your *lover* access to their favorite song on Spotify in a snap — and probably all the feels as well, you know how Swifties can be.

Halo Press / Etsy

I say this as a diehard Swiftie myself — this product is super cool. The hardest part will easily be choosing a song. If they aren’t into mentally wandering through the forest in a cardigan, you can also check out other options featuring Harry Styles or Black Pink. Halo Press is a California-based Etsy shop established in 2020.

Get it from Halo Press for $2.50 (available in three styles).


An octopus plush that’ll give your partner a clear way to convey their feelings — and provide you with fair warning if they’re having a bad day.


I’ve seen so many funny TikTok videos with grumpy partners hiding under the covers with the grumpy octopus next to them. Their helpful S.O. gives them treats and snacks until they switch it back to the “happy” octopus.

Promising review: “I got this gift for my girlfriend because I, as many men do find it quite difficult to read her attitude and mood when we are far apart. So I gifted her this and told her that if she’s in a bad mood and wants to make sure I reach out and talk about it that this would be a sure sign and I’ll make sure to avoid bringing my stress on her or save it for later. And for the most part when it’s smiling and yellow I’m safe to live free. Get the gift, I don’t know why you are still looking at reviews you know she will love it!” —Christian Wahl

Get it from Amazon for $15 (available in 12 styles).


A personalized heart pin with both of your initials on it — it simply seems like *way* too much work to actually go out and carve into a tree and this is just as adorable.


Added bonus? You can brag to your S.O. about how you bought their gift from a woman-owned small biz!

A Google Nest they’ll love because they can use it to listen to music (kitchen dance party!?), adjust the lights in their home, pause their TV, and ask it questions as if they have a personal assistant.


My husband was hesitant about getting a device like this in our home, but after an hour he was sold. We have it in our kitchen and *kindly* ask it to play music while we cook and eat, use it to set timers while baking, and ask it funny questions. We love this lil’ gadget. We also have a Google Nest Hub by our front door so we always know what’s on each other’s calendar for the and know what time it is before heading out. We recently bought our first home and have a Google Nest Hub Max that we plan to install to control *all* the things (lights, sounds, etc) a la Disney’s Smart House.

Promising review (for the men’s): “It’s lined with some some thermal insulation, not fleece like the collar. It’s super warm. I’m a woman with very broad shoulders, so I decided to go with a men’s medium, because the women’s shoulder width is usually too small, and it fits perfectly.” —Dani S.

Or an embroidered sweatshirt with a “Driver’s License” lyric in case, despite you guys being in a healthy happy relationship, all your partner wants to do is scream-sing this song and talk about *all* the drama that goes along with it (it’s me, I’m doing that. I’m talking about me).

Promising review: “Wow! I purchased this on a whim after seeing one of my favorite YouTubers try it out. I didn’t expect a lot from it. I tried it out and was shocked!!! The mask was simple (and fun) to use. I wasn’t sure I felt a lot happening while it was on, but it was pretty cool how the bubbles started to grow off of my face. Upon inspection after using this mask I was completely amazed. My face felt cleaner than it has in a very long time AND my pores looked amazing! I don’t remember a time when I felt like my pores looked great before using this mask. I would highly recommend this mask to anyone. It’s also so much cheaper than the GlamGlow ones I have been using (and didn’t see near these results from).” —K. Textor

Promising review: “I’m normally bored by crosswords and word-search puzzles after a short time, but these have a twist in that you have to answer five Jeopardy-type questions in order to get all the clues for the puzzles.

I have enjoyed a number of the Brain Games series, and this is one of the best.” —Ginger Russell

Get it on sale from Budsies for $99 (originally $115).


A face wash foamer they can use to make the cleanser they’re already accustomed to feel extra fancy.


Promising review: “This thing is the bomb. Does exactly what it advertises; makes a thick whipped cream/foam out of washes, making it economical as well as fun. It can soften harsh washes to make the concoction gentler on skin. It’s also great for mixing washes if you have two or more you’d like to combine for different effects. And of course, a little goes a long, long way with this puppy. For the price, it’s a steal. Definitely give it a try if you’re not sure. It’s a really cool device.” —Knock Knock Me

A challenging 1,000-piece gradient puzzle that’ll take them more than one session to finish — they may want to throw it across the room, but they’ll thank you for the mental distraction.


Puzzles are my mom’s go-to when she’s feeling anxious. They encourage her to use her brain and focus on something other than her worries. You might want to add a puzzle roller into your cart as well so you won’t find yourself stressing out over “where should I put this half-finished puzzle?”

Promising review: “This was my first time buying this brand, and as an avid puzzler, I know there is definitely nothing worse than a brand who doesn’t put care into the quality of their puzzles, and Betterco absolutely does! The puzzle was beautiful, and the quality of the pieces were great. Sturdy, fit snug together, and no bending or peeling. Highly recommend.” —Ashley Masterson

Jeni’s ice cream pick-your-own mix for your frozen treat–obsessed lover who would enjoy nothing more than diving into a pint while watching all three of the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before movies.

Heather Braga / BuzzFeed

I recently had the pleasure of trying Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream for the first time and was blown away by how freakin’ delicious it was. I personally like the dairy-free roasted peanut butter and strawberry jam pint and their gooey butter cake pint (are you salivating yet?) but I don’t doubt that every single concoction they’ve come up with will bring a smile to your face. The ship nationwide so even if you’re spending this Valentine’s Day apart you can make sure you love has a sweet treat to celebrate with.

Mix and match four pints in “Jeni’s Delivery Box” from Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream for $48+ (available in 20 flavors)


A handheld light your partner will surely find themselves *mooning* over each night.

Promising review: “I originally bought the 7-inch moon for my husband as a gift of ‘I love you to the moon and back’ for our anniversary… Well, I loved his moon so much that I kept stealing it from our bedroom and taking it to the living room. So I bought myself the 5.9 inch moon to compare sizes and have one to call my own. As it turns out, the slightly smaller 5.9 inch one is just as amazing as the seven-inch. These moons charge up fast with a cord (with a cool ‘blue moon’ color when charging) and then once charged, they are completely free from cords or any connection dependence. They light up with a very detailed real moon surface design in white or yellow, and it will totally mesmerize you. You can literally ‘hold the whole moon in your hand’ and use it as a cordless and battery-free lamp, a nightlight, a lantern or quasi-candle in the dark. The wood stand is sleek and super easy to assemble, and is a perfect accent to any room décor. These moons are the best gift for friends, family, co-workers, kids, pets and spouses. My #1 purchase pick for 2020!” —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in four sizes).

“I recently started using this myself in the Three Wishes Tea flavor (a combo of tea leaves, peaches, rosebuds, and marigolds) and the smell alone is swoon-worthy, but I love love love how it feels in the shower. It has a satisfying creamy whipped texture, but suds up when you use it so you get that nice satisfying squeaky clean feeling, too. It’s lasting a long time, too (which is great, but means I have to wait a little longer to try the other flavors 😂).”

Get it from Indulgence Spa on Etsy for $15 (available in over 50 scent combinations).

A Tile Pro tracker so you’ll never have to hear your partner say “have you seen my keys?” ever again.


Promising review: “I lose everything! This is the best invention ever. Anytime I can’t find my keys I just open the app and in seconds I can find my keys. The best part is a few weeks ago my keys actually fell off the little ring while I was at the mall. When I got to my car I realized my keys were gone. I was so worried but I figured let’s see what happens. I opened my app and hoped for the best. Luckily it was in range and when I clicked the button I heard the beeping. I jumped in my car and started following the noise till it got louder. I was able to find my keys hidden in the grass. They must have fallen off while I was walking back to my car. So, yeah, I would definitely recommend.” —MBMZ

Get it from Amazon for $34.98.

Promising review: “I like iced coffee with high caffeine. This fits the bill perfectly and is a joy to use and drink.

A “Wreck This Journal” that’ll encourage them to get more in touch with their artistic side, great if they’ve always been intimidated by trying to fill out the blank pages of boring old regular journals.

Promising review: “I’m 17 and I loved this. In the intro it says the page instructions are all up to interpretation, so if it says ‘spill your drink’ or something you can take that literally or choose to paint on it with something such as tea or coffee that’ll look like brown watercolor. Which I love that it’s bizarre prompts but that you have wiggle room if you don’t want to do anything too crazy. I would recommend this if you’re just looking for something fun or if you’re going through some challenges this is really helpful to distract/express/push yourself!” —Marlee

Get it from Amazon for $9.59.


An aesthetically pleasing bottle of bourbon they’ll enjoy using to decorate their bar cart as much as they like sipping on it to warm up in the midst of a snowstorm.

A set of touch bracelets so whether you and your partner live in different states or you haven’t been able to hang with your mom as often as you’d like during this weird year, you’ll be able to feel a sense of closeness whenever you need it.


Promising review: “I very much love this product. It makes my partner and I feel so much closer every time we tap since we live in different states. It really does help a lot with that distance. I usually tap the bond whenever I’m anxious or something during work and knowing my partner feels it and would tap back is very reassuring to know that they’re there even when far away or just random taps to know that he’s thinking of me. The only con that I have with this is that the bonds sometimes have a delayed timing but it’s easily resolved with restarting the app and your phone.” —Nightshade

Get a set of two from UncommonGoods for $98.


A too-cute PopSocket featuring everyone’s favorite mouse — a must-have for anyone who wants to add a lil’ extra magic to their phone decor.

I’m a recent PopSocket convert and honestly I’m not sure why I waited so long to add one to my phone! It’s ridiculously easy to stick on, it’s fun to fidget with, and it works great as a stand for when I’m FaceTiming my parents. If I had one of these while I was a student it definitely would’ve helped me text more discreetly during class (DON’T DO THAT, KIDS!).

Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in nine styles).

ourplace / Via

This single pan can replace their frying pan, sauté pan, steamer, skillet, saucier, saucepan, non-stick pan, spatula, and spoon rest.

Promising review: “This pan is EVERYTHING! I went from making pasta in the basket to steaming broccoli in it and then finishing my meal in there. Then I forgot about cleaning it because I’m lazy and the nonstick cleaned up so easily. The sponge they include is incredible, I do all my dishes with it now. Also it looks really cute sitting on my stove all day.” —Darby S.

Get it from Our Place for $145 (available in five colors).


A Dungeons and Dragons essentials kit to help them expand their skills and prepare to have creative control over all of your friends as Dungeon Master (a gift for everyone involved, TBH).


You can pair the set with these ice-themed dice to take it to the next level.

Promising review: “Honestly, this kit is what the original starter kit should have been. The story is easier to follow for a newer DM. The adventure is a lot more streamlined. The breakdown of character creation is amazing and simplified. It doesn’t just toss you some generic character that you have no connection to. It simplifies character creation and allows you to ease into more complicated characters later on. The cards that come with this kit are something I wish I had when I first started. They help with initiative, conditions, and the sidekick cards and magic item cards are awesome. I would recommend this kit over the original to any person wanting to start playing DnD.” —Bryan

Get it from Amazon for $12.47.


A subscription to Book of the Month for any bibliophile who hates having to actually speak to someone in a store about what they should read next and would much rather have their next fave novel delivered to their door.

bookofthemonth / Via

I was gifted a year of Book of the Month for my birthday one year and to date it is one of the best things I’ve received. There are few things as satisfying as getting truly lost in the pages of a good book — and it’ll provide for a great distraction for the mind if your love has recently been feeling stressed from, well, our entire society right now. Each month they’ll be permitted to choose one of four books, all of which are different genres. Then the book they select will be delivered to their door. Magic! Excuse me, I need to re-up my subscription.

bawdybeauty / Via, Amazon

Promising review: “I love these because great skin isn’t limited to just your face and neither should the products that facilitate it! These definitely infuse the area with essence like a facial sheet and offer a moisturizing, gently tightening effect so you know they’re working! I have tried other products designed for the same area and these were by far the best and least messy.” —fountainsoda

Get a single mask from Amazon for $9.95.


An external battery charger, so your main squeeze can continue to blow up your phone at all hours of the day and night.


….in an endearing way, obviously. Whether they lose power or simply enter such a cozy state they can’t bear the thought of getting out of bed to charge their phone, this product is essential for keeping their battery charged.

Promising review: “This bad boy holds a lot of power for charging iPhones multiple times (like on a long journey away from power). Plus it holds a charge pretty well. Rechargeable lithium batteries are known to leak power over time and this will, too, but the capacity is so high that the leakage is inconsequential. I charged mine and let it sit for a month without using it. It still showed four of four dots and recharged to the top fairly quickly (sorry, I didn’t time it).” —Steve B

Get it from Amazon for $21.95.


And an all-too relatable Valentine’s Day card that’ll make you both giggle — sometimes all you anyone really wants is a silly card with a heartfelt note written inside.

Kaleidadope / Etsy

Here’s to hoping my husband doesn’t read this post because I’m buying him this card — I haven’t stopped laughing about it since I found it. Added bonus? Kaleidadope is a Black woman-owned small biz run out of Washington DC with tons of other cool products like tarot cards, affirmations, and an array of other hilarious greeting cards.

Get it from Kaleidadope on Etsy for $5.50.
