Your partner is the one who understands, accepts, celebrates, and champions you through all of the good, as well as the bad. There’s no one else you’d rather scroll through TikToks, snuggle on the couch, or go on adventures with — but there’s one little problem. You’ve been together for so long that you’ve run out of ideas on what to gift them for the holidays. Now, with Valentine’s Day around the corner, you’re at a loss, wondering how in the world you’re going to find something new, exciting, and valuable that they’ll actually enjoy.
Here’s the secret: No matter what you wrap up in pink-and-red wrapping, they’ll appreciate the gesture from their one-and-only. The trick to finding the right sentiment in a long-term relationship is choosing something that either brings you closer as a twosome or encourages the individual qualities you love about them.
Here are our top 15 picks for Valentine’s Day gifts when you’ve been together, well, forever:
Artifact Uprising Scrapbook Album
Every length relationship has been through stages: when you met, when you became a couple, when you fell in love, when you went on trips, when you moved in together, and potentially when you got engaged, married, and had children. These chapters are meaningful, but you probably don’t have all of these memories in one place. Wow your significant other with this album that allows you to document your relationship with prompts, photo placements, and envelopes to store ticket stubs, airplane tickets, photo strips, and more.
In-Store Cooking Classes: Table for Two at Sur La Table
Suppose you don’t have the energy to fight other diners for a table on Valentine’s Day, head to a kitchen store instead. That’s right: Sur La Table not only has all of the essentials to brush up on your culinary skills at home, but they also offer date night in-store cooking classes. Based on where you live, you can choose from various themes, like ‘Cooking With Wine,’ ‘Sushi For Two,’ ‘An Evening in Thailand,’ and other options. They provide everything you need — you just bring excitement to learn together.
POLYWOOD Vineyard Adirondack 48" Swing
For couples who share the same roof, there’s always a spot in your house that you enjoy snuggling up the most. Perhaps it’s your couch, your bed, a corner of your kitchen — you name it. But what about the great outdoors? Send the message to your significant other that you want to enjoy Mother Nature together more with this gorgeous Adirondack swing. It’s cozy and made out of recycled plastic milk jugs, making it super-durable, no matter where you live. Might we suggest preparing a picnic outdoors as a surprise with the swing, too?
Farmgirl Flowers That's Amore bouquet
Sure, you’ve likely been given (or given) red roses before. And yeah, it’s a little cheesy for Valentine’s Day. But it’s all about how you deliver the message: is your love timeless? Classic? As beautiful as a delicate flower? For couples who don’t want to spend too much yet still make a sweet gesture, a beautiful bouquet is a smart tactic to take. Make sure to write a handwritten card, too. Editor’s note: Roses ship with a protective corrugate wrap.
Best Self Co. INTIMACY Deck
Hopefully, you learn new things about your partner with each passing year. Or, you watch in awe as they grow and expand as a person. If recently, you haven’t taken the time to ask questions and have in-depth conversations, this intimacy deck will help. Each card includes meaningful and relationship-building questions, all meant to enrich your connection and bring you closer. We say it pairs well with a fancy dinner at home, by candlelight, and a bottle (or two) of wine.
HP Sprocket Studio Photo Printer
The main star of your iPhone photo library isn’t yourself — it’s your partner. (And okay, your dog or cat, too.) However, it’s probably been a long time since you’ve updated the framed photos in your home since it takes time, effort, and money to have them printed. While this may feel like a more practical gift, it has a romantic undertone: you’re letting your partner know that you cherish the new memories as much as the old ones. We recommend buying this, printing off your favorite photos together, and then writing what you loved about those experiences on the back. It’ll have them swooning for sure.
American Homebrewers Association Membership
Your partner loves you the most. But a close second is craft beer. No matter where your adventures take you, the night always ends (or begins!) with a visit to a brewery. Encourage this hobby with a subscription to the American Homebrewers Association. They provide endless resources to help your one-and-only create their own concoctions at home. And hey, an added perk is you’ll get to sample all of their new creations!
Sunday Riley Power Couple Total Transformation Kit
A power-packed beauty pair for a power couple. This exfoliating and brightening duo — comprised of Good Genes Glycolic Acid Treatment and Luna Sleeping Night Oil — comes together for the ultimate skin-loving routine.
The Art of Etiquette Anniversary Book
When you’ve been together forever, anniversaries and special occasions seem to come and go. You remember them, sort of, but you rarely record what happened (other than a quick Instagram selfie, of course). However, one day, your children — and their children — will want to look back on their parent’s love story. Plus, when you’re older, you may enjoy a walk down memory lane. This beautiful keepsake encourages couples to record all of their years together with new photos, milestones, highlights, memories, and, best of all, love letters. The idea is you’ll write a letter to each other to be opened on the next anniversary. Talk about romance!
Big Blanket Original Stretch™ Blanket
You love your person, but you aren’t a fan of how they hog the covers every night. And it’s not just when you’re sleeping — but on the couch, too. Cut back on arguments and give both of you comfort with the Big Blanket. And by big, we really, truly mean big: it’s a plush 10×10 throw blanket covering 100 square feet that can easily fit four grown adults. You’ll each have all of the snuggle room you need while under the same cover. Make a whole binge-watching night of it with your favorite films, takeout, and maybe a fun nightcap, too.
Bean Box Coffee + Chocolate Tasting Box
Many people think of Valentine’s Day evening as the time to celebrate, but what about Valentine’s Day morning. For couples who enjoy lazy mornings together sipping coffee and reading the paper, the a.m. can be just as romantic as the night. And after all, it’s a new way to celebrate February 14th! Consider purchasing this box that pairs chocolate with coffee for a fun tasting experience.
The Adventure Challenge
If your creativity is running low for Valentine’s Day, give yourself a break. After more years together than you’ve kept count of, it’s normal to feel a little lost on ideas. Luckily, with this gift, the hard work is done for you. This fun pack includes 50 scratch-off adventures. It’ll help you get out of your habits, dive deeper into your relationship, and, of course, make new exciting memories as a duo. The first scratch-off can be on Valentine’s Day, and then you can continue to uncover new ones throughout the year.
M.M.LaFleur Passport Holder
Have you ever wanted to go to the airport, find the next flight out, and just go for it? Rather than just daydreaming about it, make it a reality! While it may take some time to plan with your work schedule and your partner’s, there’s no better romantic surprise than a vacation. Give this leather passport holder as a memento to remember the moment when you made your travel aspirations come true.
Greendigs Anthurium Plant
If you always give flowers for Valentine’s Day, shake it up this year by encouraging your partner’s green thumb with a plant. This Anthurium plant will produce beautiful, tropical-inspired blooms with the right care. Plus, it’ll pair well with a trip to a local arboretum for hand-holding and experiencing the great outdoors as a team.
