4. 642 Things About You (That I Love) Journal
You’ve probably seen those cute and homemade gifts where someone writes out 365 things they love about their significant other on little pieces of paper and sticks them in a box.
But if you want your gift to look more thoughtful and put together, and if you want to minimize the risk of your significant other losing one of the pieces of paper, you need this journal.
The 642 Things About You (That I Love) Journal is a pocketbook-sized journal that you fill out to fit your relationship and loved one.
With 642 prompts, you won’t have to think about 642 new things, but you’re able to write down your favorite memories, topics, and more.

It’s a gift she’ll cherish for years to come.
5. Inspirational Hand-Stamped Bracelet
If your lady loves jewelry and inspirational quotes, she’ll love this “She believed she could, so she did” hand-stamped bracelet.
It is simple, matches almost every outfit, and inspirational and encouraging on those days she might not feel motivated.
Plus, the bracelet is beautiful, and she’ll love the sentiment behind it.
6. Sleep Lavender Bath Salts
This is the perfect gift for the woman that loves taking long hot baths. Plus, lavender helps promote sleep, so she can soak and get ready for a good night’s rest.

8. Godiva Chocolate
This Godiva Chocolate Box has 36 different chocolate truffle options, so she’ll find some delicious chocolate pieces.
And if she doesn’t like one, there’s still so many to choose from. Also, you’ll be able to have an excuse to fix your chocolate or sugar craving by eating what she doesn’t like.
Another win-win situation.
9. Heart of the Ocean Necklace
This Heart of the Ocean necklace is perfect for two reasons. One, it’s inspired by the famous Titanic movie with that beautiful blue diamond necklace.
Even though the story behind the necklace is fictional, it’s inspired many replicas and looks beautiful on any woman.
The second reason this necklace is perfect is that it’s engraved with “Love you forever”. What woman wouldn’t want to wear a necklace with that saying?
This is truly an affordable statement piece, so you can wow your significant other and give her something a little fancier.
10. Cooking for Two Cookbook
Don’t you hate it when a recipe says four to six servings and you have to figure out how to make it work for two people? Not anymore!

The Complete Cooking for Two Cookbook is perfect for couples who love cooking together, and don’t like a lot of leftovers or recipe changes.
Plus, this cookbook has over 600 recipes! You can make a new recipe every day for almost two years.
It’s the gift that just keeps on giving.
11. Sherpa Throw Blanket
This is one of my favorite ideas on this list, and one of the most perfect Valentine gift ideas for her. Every woman needs a soft and plush throw blanket to wrap around her whenever she’s feeling cold.
This blanket is perfect if she loves curling up with a cup of coffee and a good book.
The Genteele Sherpa Throw Blanket comes in six different colors, so feel free to choose the color closest to her favorite. Bright teal, burgundy red, and plush grey are all great choices, but you can’t go wrong with any of them.
The best parts about the blanket? It’s reversible and machine washable, too.
12. Best Wife Ever Coffee Mug
If your wife is anything like me, she probably has a cabinet filled with coffee mugs. But here’s the thing — you can never have too many coffee mugs.
This Best Wife Ever coffee mug is perfect for your wife’s morning coffee, tea, or hot chocolate. Because what wife doesn’t want to be told that she’s the best?
13. Kate Spade Small Stud Earrings
If your significant other isn’t big on bracelets or necklaces but loves a pair of simple earrings, these are the perfect choice for her.
With two different colors, multi-glitter and opal glitter, you can’t go wrong with these Kate Spade Small Stud Earrings.
They’re large enough that they make a statement with whatever outfit she chooses but small enough that they won’t feel heavy. She can even wear them if she’s running some quick errands.
Plus, they’re simple enough to last her no matter the season, trends, and changes in her life.
14. Romantic Poem Photo Frame
You don’t have to be a poet to gift this romantic poem photo frame. All you need is a four by six-inch photo and the perfect moment to gift this frame to your loved one.
The frame even comes with a gold “I Love You” label on the box, so you don’t have to do any more wrapping.
15. Best Wife Ever Wine Glass
If you’re getting multiple gifts, this Best Wife Ever Wine Glass would go perfectly with the Best Wife Ever Coffee Mug.
Your wife can have her coffee or tea in the morning and a glass of red wine at night, all while being reminded that she’s the best wife ever.
If that’s not one of the best Valentine gifts ideas for her, I don’t know what is. Now, if your wife isn’t a coffee or tea drinker, but loves her wine, this is a great gift all on its own.
You really can’t lose with this wine glass. Not only that, women use wine glasses for all types of drinks, not just wine. So she’ll be reminded that she’s the best wife ever no matter what she pours.
As you can see, there are many Valentine gifts for her you can buy without spending a lot of money. As long as it’s given with love and gratitude, she’ll appreciate it.
Don’t give into the myth that spending a lot of money means the gift has more meaning or that the price of a gift is equivalent to the amount of love you have.
A thoughtful gift given with love is one of the best gifts that anyone can receive, regardless of the time or holiday.
