The best Valentine’s Day gifts really come down to the gesture itself, no matter what your thoughts are on the holiday: A consumerist farce, maybe, or one of your favorite days on the calendar. The smallest trinket (a new toothbrush in the medicine cabinet, or a key to your apartment that takes a couple bucks to make a copy for) can mean a whole lot more than it lets on.
But here at GQ, we’re also of the opinion that it never hurts to scheme up a capital-G Gift to show that special someone (or perhaps someones, plural!) in your life that you’ve got it together, you know what day it is, and you’re not shy with your displays of affection. With that in mind, we’ve assembled gift ideas at every price point, big and small, for any gesture you might have planned this Valentine’s Day.
We’ve also polished off some of our best general gift guides for all the people (dads, moms, and beyond) in your life, because you might be feeling generous with where you’re extending your love this year. There are even some gift ideas for those gray area people—the “haven’t defined the relationship” sort, or the ones you’re just getting to know better—who warrant more than a bouquet.
Below you’ll find all the best Valentine’s Day gifts for everyone in your orbit, according to us. We’ll keep updating this page with more Valentine’s coverage up until the 14th, so don’t forget to check back here throughout the next few weeks.
