Valentine’s Day is around the corner, so if you’re looking for some inspiration on gift ideas, you’re in the right place. Whether you’re hoping to gift them with chocolates and roses or functional and useful items, our list has something for everyone. These are our choice picks for the best Valentine’s Day Gifts to give and receive this February.

Relaxed So-Cal Must-Haves

Left on Friday’s Day Trip Collection (prices start at $120) is the ideal gift for your laid-back gal. The group includes  an oversized button down shirt, which can be worn as a tunic or cover-up, long, flowy pants to dress up or down, and shorts. The elastic on the waistband offers a super-flattering fit for all body types. With an assortment of colors to choose from, she’s sure to be pleased with the soft and comfortable Sportsilk fabric, which is 100% biodegradable.

Multi-functional Pants for Him and Her

My husband has the hardest time finding everyday pants that fit nicely, while offering function and comfort. That’s why Cotopaxi’s Salto Ripstop Pant ($80) is a winner. Made of a sustainable cotton blend, the fabric is breathable and versatile, with two side and back pockets for storing essentials. The brand offers a lifetime warranty, along with a trade-in program for used gear. For her, the women’s version comes in four classic colors.

She’ll love Orvis’ AnyWear cardigan ($99), which is great for both warm and cold temperatures. The ultrafine merino wool allows for an easy drape, while the longer length covers all the right areas, providing a flattering fit. Gift him with the Classic Barn Coat ($139), constructed of durable cotton canvas, making it the quintessential working coat.

Show Fido Some Love Too

Don’t forget your four-legged friend on this special day! Not only does Gelato Pique offer the cutest assortment of pajamas and toys for humans, they carry this cute baby panda set ($107) for your pupster or cat. Made of the softest material for your pet’s comfort, the two-piece set is easy to pull-on and off. 

EarthRated Dog Toys

EarthRated Dog Toys

Your pup will love the tug toy by Earth Rated. Not only will it provide for lots of safe play, its smooth curved shape allows it to be gentle for his canine teeth. Plus, it’s a bonus for you because it’s dishwasher and freezer safe! The treat toy is another fun item that’s meant to keep them busy for hours. Simply put kibble and treats inside the inner-tube and watch them get to work.

Laid-back Denim

The brand Liverpool has some of the best denim items for both men and women. Check out their selection of boyfriend jeans (prices start at $98), which can be rocked with a casual tee for a laid-back vibe, or a blazer and button-down shirt for an elevated look. The company’s focus on sustainability includes the reduction of harsh chemicals, efforts on water conservation, and leaving a minimal impact on the environment.

A Match Made in Heaven

I’m a big fan of DUER’s clothing for both men and women because of the company’s commitment to natural and sustainable fashion practices. She’ll love their newly-launched LuxTwill collection, featuring a matching jacket and high-rise trousers ($139).

A Commuter’s Dream

For those Outdoor Adventures

If your partner loves camping like my husband does, you’ll get kudos for gifting them Stoic’s Groundwork Double Sleeping Bag. The double-wide sleeping bag offers more space, along with comfortable warmth despite cold-weather conditions. Meant to be a two-person sleeping bag, the compartments also unzip into separate parts. 

Prepare an Asian-inspired Home-made meal

A-Sha has been making noodles for the past 40 years. Why not order the starter bundle ($56.49) and make a romantic meal at home? Their noodles are much healthier than their deep-fried counterparts. A-Sha noodles are air-dried using the highest quality ingredients in every bowl, containing a minimum 10 grams of plant-based protein. For those seeking more heat, check out their spicy lovers bundle ($49). They also carry a good selection of fun goodies to munch on, such as Boba Kit Brown Sugar Milk Tea ($24) and seaweed snacks.
