The 10 Best Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas

Updated 1/12/2024

Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to honor that special person who makes your heart skip a beat. Whether you’re celebrating the beautiful bond of marriage or fanning the flame of new love, the best gifts come in the smallest boxes. Here are ten great Valentine’s Day gift ideas for your celebration.

1. Diamond Earrings

Show that special person how much you care with this timeless classic. The little black dress of the jewelry world, diamond stud earrings are a versatile gift that goes with any ensemble, from jeans and t-shirts to elegant ball gowns. Stylish and sophisticated, a fiery pair of studs is a safe, reliable Valentine’s Day gift, thanks to their incredible versatility and universal appeal.

2. Perfume

Because scent is a personal, subjective trademark for so many women, it’s risky selecting perfume as a reliable Valentine’s gift. That is unless you go the safe route by buying a sampler box with several different new fragrances. Even if you miss the mark with most of the scents, she’ll be thrilled to discover just one brand-new perfume. Once she tries them all, you can treat her to a full bottle of her top choice.

3. Pendant Necklaces

Since they provide so many chances for customization, pendants are a perfect choice if you want to express your love with a unique gift. Select a meaningful infinity symbol to represent your enduring commitment. Include your children's birthstones to honor your family life. Whatever you select, a pendant necklace can reflect your familiarity and intimacy with the special person in your life.

4. Stackable Rings

Multiple rings are trending right now, thanks in part to celebrities such as Meghan Markle, Rihanna and Jennifer Garner, who regularly sport the jewelry at events and TV interviews. Not only do stackable rings let you mix, match and coordinate; they allow you to customize your jewelry gifts. Not sure where to start? You can work with one of John Atencio's consultants to select a stackable combination that will reflect your loved one's unique style.

5. Silk Pajamas

After a long day, most women look forward to swapping out their professional attire for a comfy pair of pajamas. These no-fail, sure-fire, Valentine’s Day gifts offer everyday practicality and a touch of intimacy. Whether you choose a cuddly pair of pajamas, loose lounge pants, or a flirty short robe, she'll love having something new to relax in.

6. Diamond Tennis Bracelet

Classic, stylish and endlessly elegant, the diamond tennis bracelet has long been a wardrobe staple. One of the most iconic jewelry pieces, this stunning accessory adds glamor to any ensemble. Striking yet simple to wear, this modern classic is eye-catching in formal environments and casual settings.

7. A Surprise Getaway

The long, stark winter months can wear down our spirits. Around mid-February, most women eagerly embrace the promise of spring, which is still several weeks out of reach. Thrill your special someone this Valentine’s Day with a surprise vacation. Whether it’s a trip to the Caribbean, Florida Keys, Southern California or an all-inclusive cruise, she’ll be ecstatic to escape the chilly winter weather for a romantic warm-weather getaway together.

8. Jewelry Sets

What’s better than a single piece? How about an entire set? Matching pieces provide a winning Valentine's Day gift especially if they showcase the wearer’s birthstone. Since they tend to focus on a specific gem, follow a similar pattern, and are set in complementary ways, matching jewelry sets create a beautiful, harmonious look. They also remove all the guesswork that goes with mixing and matching, while providing an easy-to-wear option that blends well with multiple ensembles.

9. Cashmere Sweater

The ultimate cozy smart-buy, cashmere is a beautiful, luxurious fabric. Coveted by countless women, the ultra-soft material is a perfect defense against the winter elements. And since it comes in a variety of colors and prints, cashmere sweaters can be comfortable, cozy and contemporary chic.

10. Designer Rings

If you really want to make their eyes light up, consider a beautiful designer ring. These stunning gifts provide an incredible variety of options that let you easily find a piece that will perfectly complement an existing jewelry collection and reflect her unique style. John Atencio brings a unique perspective to his ring designs, incorporating distinctive curves, dramatic shapes and pristine finishes.
