4. Valentine’s Day Basket
Valentine’s Day baskets have always been popular, but you can always spice things up a bit. Instead of getting all the cliche items, fill your V-Day basket with things your partner loves. For example, you can add candles, body scrubs, your partner’s favorite albums, and a plethora of other things your partner likes. If you find it hard to put a basket together or just don’t know what to get, there are stores online that will do it for you.
Who doesn’t love to be warm and comfortable? Blankets are underrated gifts that are practical and comforting. You can customize blankets with your lover’s favorite photos, fave TV characters, or whatever comes to mind.
Step it up: If your partner is someone who is cold 24/7, consider getting them a blanket hoodie. Blanket hoodies range from $30-$60 and come in different colors and fabrics.

6. Swarovski figurines
Even though they’re known for their jewelry, Swarovski has other cute products you can get for your partner. For example, Swarovski figurines are a big hit as Valentine’s Day gifts. They have different figurines from your favorite domestic animals to Disney characters. Prices for Swarovski figurines range from $30-$30,000, but they are certainly worth the money.
If your partner is an art enthusiast, consider getting them artwork. Specifically, artwork from independent artists. Indie artists tend to have more creative freedom with their art, and for a good price. You can also inquire about commissioning customized artwork or create your own work of art.

Candles are a simple, yet practical gift to give to your partner. Whether you personalize it or not, it’s still a great gift. Find out your partner’s favorite scents and consider making a gift set of their favorite candles. If your partner loves gourmand (edible) scents, consider getting them food-themed candles this Valentine’s Day.
Step it up: If you want to get your partner a candle gift set, you can create your own (or choose an existing one) on the Forvr Mood website.
