This year, Valentine’s Day lands the day after the Super Bowl, meaning it’s probably best to sort out a gift for your S.O before the big game if you’re at all invested in the outcome, as well as the longevity of your relationship.
So, listen very carefully when I say this: women do not want heart-shaped jewelry from the chain store at the mall from their boyfriends and husbands.
Not for Valentine’s Day, not for Christmas, not for their birthday…okay, you get the point.
Great! Now that we have that out of the way, let’s talk about what womwn really want.
Personally, I would like my boyfriend to yell at a slightly lower decibel while playing Xbox after 10 p.m., but in lieu of that, a fun and romantic present will be welcome.
And before you come for me…if you and your significant other don’t want to do gifts because Valentine’s Day is a dumb corporate holiday invented to promote materialism, fine! If you’re single, no worries!
But my love language after Words Of Affirmation is Gift Giving, so I’m all about showing affection with a little something special for my guy, and I don’t think there’s anything wrong with hoping for the same thought and intention in return.
Whew! Thanks for letting me get that off my chest. Where was I?
If you are in need of a last-minute present for your longtime love or freshly official boo, I’ve racked up a list of fool-proof gifts for a very special V-Day.
Below, 12 last-minute Valentine’s Day gift ideas for her:
1. Skims robe
It’s 2022, so I don’t have to tell you we’ve moved beyond sexy lingerie for Valentine’s Day, right? Instead, help your girl get cozy as hell on V-day with this Skims Robe.
Say what you want about Kim K., but everything I hear about this robe is that it feels like you’re wrapped up in a cloud when wearing it. Which is why this has been on my wishlist for the last year (someone tell my BF please).
Give your girl Breakfast at Tiffany’s eye mask realness with this set from Slip.
The prompts in this card deck are meant to help you and your S.O. connect with one another.
Great for spending quality time together when you’re done scrolling TikTok on the couch side by side.
The best gift you can get your S.O. that they may never ask for is a weekender bag.

This one, from Pretty Little Liars star Shay Mitchell’s brand Béis, looks chic and has a pocket on the back that fits over your luggage handle.
Warning: Will induce wanderlust, so get ready to plan a trip sometime soon.
This candle is definitely a that girl favorite. Plus, you’re supporting an independent artisan on Etsy!
This stuff has gone absolutely viral on TikTok, and for good reason.
It’s technically supposed to be used right before you go to sleep, but I use it almost every hour. It’s seriously addicting.
Byredo is best known for its bougie af candles and perfumes, like this exclusive, limited-edition scent with notes of tangerine, rose, and vanilla.
Plus, it will look so chic on her nightstand. Total no-brainer.
Remember what I said about not wanting heart-shaped jewelry? Stay with me here: that doesn’t apply to clothes.
There’s something sweet about an understated heart print, especially on cashmere!
Oh, and there’s matching socks, too!
Yes, more candles.
You simply can’t go wrong with a chic candle and Boy Smells makes some great ones.
Want to make it a whole themed affair? Add a wick trimmer (here’s one for under $10 on Amazon) to really impress her.
10. Ugg slipper
Dare I say it? Uggs are making a comeback.
These slippers have been in my cart for months and I’m just about ready to pull the trigger (again, unless you see this first, BF!).
Want to move away from clothes and accessories? A beautiful coffee table book always makes a great gift.
The Art Deco book is a perfect neutral, so it will likely look great on any book shelf or coffee table.
Plus, it’s a great conversation piece. When you get sick of looking at the same four walls, you can dream about where you’d like to live next!
Skip the traditional gold or silver and this year, go kitschy with a fun beaded piece.
This “Love” necklace is the perfect layering piece and super trendy right now.
