If you’re a man reading this, congratulations! You’ve reached the page featuring the top 19 Reddit Gift Ideas for Valentine’s Day from women on what they truly want. Not all of these suggestions are items you can purchase, but rest assured, they’re guaranteed to make this day unforgettable for her!
While this might not be everyone’s cup of tea, it largely depends on the individual girl. However, if cleanliness is important to her in any way, she’ll be overjoyed to wake up or return home to a tidy space. My then-boyfriend did this for me when we were dating, and I felt immensely relieved and happy, especially since I was juggling two jobs at the time. Even now that we’re married, I still wish he’d surprise me with this gesture more often!
Alright, the women of Reddit have spoken, and I believe all girlfriends and wives would agree. If you haven’t gotten chocolate yet, what are you doing? It’s the staple piece for a fantastic Valentine’s Day!
You’re probably feeling pretty excited about this idea, but before diving in, consider what she enjoys in the bedroom. Begin by taking it slow with a sensual massage, perhaps using some luxurious lotion or oil. If you’re unsure of what she likes, don’t hesitate to ask! Trust me, she’ll be happy to share. Now, onto a potentially unconventional Valentine’s gift idea: If she is on her period during this special occasion, consider getting her a menstrual disc for mess-free period sex. Yes, it’s a real thing, and you can read more in our other blog post ‘Valentine’s Day Gift Guide: Period Sex Edition.
You are probably thinking, ‘What would I even get her?’ The idea from the fellow women of Reddit is not to purchase the makeup yourself but instead, get her a gift card or take her to her favorite makeup store and let her pick out a few things she would like.
A Night Out or Maybe In?
Plan something special for that day or evening. Whether it’s something more outgoing and social, like karaoke, bumper cars, or dancing classes, or perhaps something more relaxed, like a cozy movie night at home—don’t forget to stock up on snacks, though! You know her preferences best, so try to come up with an activity she would truly enjoy this Valentine’s Day. NOTE: If you make any meal for her, clean up the mess; otherwise, it doesn’t feel that special.
Here is a list from Reddit if you need more ideas.
- Live Music
- Book a Massage
- Prepare a meal for her (breakfast or dinner)
- Archery Range
- Painting Class
- Visit a Zoo
- Living Room Picnic
- Escape Room
- A night off (especially if you have young ones)
- Pottery Class
- Gun Range
- Board Games
- A Staycation at an Airbnb or hotel
While it’s a popular choice for this holiday, here are some ideas from Reddit fans, whether you’re married, dating, or have children. Consider gifting her a necklace or bracelet adorned with your child’s birthstone or initials.
This jewelry, in particular, enables you to place an image inside a charm, visible when you look through it.
If you’re on a tight budget or gifts aren’t her preference, this is a wonderful idea! Make small paper coupons that she can redeem whenever she likes. Some ideas could include a 5-minute foot massage, taking care of kitchen cleaning, or preparing a meal. Here is a longer list of coupons you can create if you need more ideas.
If she’s suffering from terrible cramps and you know she’ll be on her period this Valentine’s Day, consider getting her a cozy heat belt to help soothe her discomfort when you can’t be there. If you really want to go all out, you can also get the Pixie Pulse, a unit that will not just soothe period cramps but make them disappear.
Take her to get her nails done! It’s a simple gesture that makes a woman feel pampered and put together. Plus, if you’re planning to take her to a fancy dinner reservation later, she’ll look fire!
Bouquet or Plants
Flowers are a classic gesture, but here’s another idea: consider getting her a plant instead. While flowers may only last a week or so, a plant is a gift that she can nurture and enjoy for years to come! Here is a list of some of the best plants to give.
I’ve also come across many other unique bouquet ideas, such as a balloon bouquet, LEGO bouquet, and crochet bouquet, which she might adore just as much.
This is a cute idea for new moms and dads that someone suggested on Reddit. Wonderbly is a popular brand that blends creativity and technology. Award-winning authors, illustrators, and software engineers spend hundreds of hours crafting each story.
Over 60 other ladies on Reddit liked this common suggestion: getting a gift card for her car detailing. It’s definitely something to consider. However, if you’re on a tight budget, consider cleaning it out for her yourself!
Coffee or Tea
Every girl’s best friend! Well, maybe not every girl, but certainly most. It can be as simple as picking up her favorite drink from Starbucks, or perhaps a gift card, or even going all out and surprising her with a Nespresso or Cuisinart coffee maker.
If she is more of a tea drinker, consider opting for a matcha set; this is one that I personally love! Or perhaps a box of very special loose-leaf teas to enjoy.
Valentine’s Day Love Notes
Is her love language words of affirmation? If you’re unsure of your love languages, taking the quiz together might be fun. Regardless, consider planting some encouraging notes around the house or even in her car. Here are some ideas on how to execute this gesture effectively.
If you’re skilled enough, consider painting her a picture of something she loves, such as her pet, her children, or even a portrait of the two of you together. If painting isn’t your forte, you could have someone else paint it for you or purchase a personalized portrait.
Highly recommended on Reddit was some sexy lingerie! However, this may not be everyone’s preference, so opt for cute, comfy MeUndies underwear. They even have matching sets for both of you!
Yes, technically, these are for children, but she doesn’t need to know that. If you’re searching for a unique teddy bear option, consider these adorable choices. You can warm them up, and they emit a soothing lavender scent to help with sleep. If she tends to miss you while you’re away, I bet she’ll love snuggling with one of these little guys. They usually have a sale during Valentine’s Day, so check out their website!
This one’s a Reddit favorite, and it’s not hard to see why. What could be a better gift than the gift of better sleep to enhance your everyday life?
The Most Requested Gift Idea for Valentine’s Day
I must admit, the most commonly requested gift on Reddit was simply having someone to go out with in the first place. It seems she already has that and more: a man who genuinely cares enough to delve into these ideas and make this Valentine’s Day extra special for her! Wishing you the best of luck with your date, and I hope it goes splendidly!
