Valentine’s Day is coming up quickly; are you ready? If not, that’s okay! We’ve got plenty of ideas in our 2022 Valentine’s Day Gift Guide that will make your sweetheart swoon! If you’re looking for romantic, thoughtful, practical, or “gee, how did you know I wanted this?” items, we’ve got you covered.
Give your Valentine the gift of fantastic flavor this year with Bushwick Kitchen! Born in Brooklyn, NY, Bushwick Kitchen makes a collection of extraordinarily flavorful maple syrups, honeys, sriracha sauces, and more. Each is a tasty twist on the traditional flavors we are used to, and they beg to be used in inventive new food pairings.
Take their $54.99 Trees Knees Gift Set, for instance; it includes a coffee maple syrup, a spicy maple syrup (with a habanero kick), and a cinnamon maple syrup. Each of the syrups is organic and from the best sugar makers in the US.
While you could use any of those syrups on pancakes and waffles, they each beg for other uses, like putting the coffee maple on ice cream, the spicy maple on bacon or roasted veggies, or the cinnamon maple in coffee or on grilled peaches.
Bushwick Kitchen’s $49.99 Threes Knees Spicy Gift Set includes a spicy honey blend made from US and Argentinean wildflower honeys with a dash of habanero for an unexpected kick. There’s also a Gochujang sriracha that combines traditional sriracha with the fermented complexity of gochujang fermented chili paste, and their spicy maple syrup with habanero rounds up the trio.
This trio will flavor everything from chicken and waffles to scrambled eggs to a hot slice of pizza!
There are five different Bushwick Kitchen Gift Sets, ranging in price from $44.99 to $54.99. Each set includes three flavorful BK products and a Bushwick Kitchen dish towel. There is a QR code right on the box, linking to recipes to help your epicurean sweetheart discover new ways to say, “Goodbye Basic. Hello, Bold!”
Is your sweetheart feeling overwhelmed and overworked? Gifting the HoMedics drift will help them relax, boost their mood, inspire creativity, and enhance their focus; it’s also a great way to ease anxiety.
The Homedics drift is a passive wellness device that can be kept on a table in just about any room. There is a bed of sand under the drift’s glass overlay through which a metal ball moves smoothly via a magnetic process.
When your Valentine is feeling stressed, they can tune out for a bit, watching the drift’s metal sphere as it silently rolls through the sand, magically carving out a mesmerizing pattern.
From the iOS app (an Android app is coming soon), they can choose from hundreds of pattern designs, control the ball’s speed, the drift’s ambient light, and the playlist. The drift app is regularly updated with new designs and features, so there will always be something new to discover.
The HoMedics drift includes everything needed for its simple set-up in the box, including the drift sandscape, a quick-start guide, a sand pack, a metal ball, a sand rake tool, and a power cord with a switching adapter.
The Homedics Drift is available in black or cream; the 16″ drift sells for $349.99, and the 21″ drift sells for $449.99. Judging by the reviews left by satisfied customers, the drift is elegant, relaxing, mesmerizing, soothing, and, yes, magical.
Does your Valentine maintain a fabulous beard? If so, they are going to appreciate products from Grooming HUT! Grooming HUT offers essential beard grooming products for all types and styles of beards.
Grooming HUT’s products are created with natural ingredients and are cruelty-free. With that in mind, check out the $44.95 Grooming HUT Beard Set Bundle, which is an excellent gift for our bearded guys! The beard Set bundle is available in Unscented, Cool Mint, Tea Tree, Cedarwood, Vanilla, and Eucalyptus.
The Beard Set Bundle includes beard oil, beard butter, beard shampoo & conditioner, a natural wooden bread brush, and a natural wooden beard comb. These five key products and tools provide your sweetheart with a thorough beard grooming routine so they can keep their face fur properly cleaned and groomed without dryness, irritation, or the dreaded “beardruff.”
Is it really a gift for them or a gift for you? We’ll never tell.
Nomad products are well-made, look great, and generally serve some techy or techy-adjacent function with élan. They’re shifting gears a bit with the $49.99 Nomad Pen, but no one is going to mind.
If your sweetheart judges the pens that they use by how the pen’s barrel feels in hand, the pen’s weight and balance, or by how smoothly that particular pen glides over the paper while leaving behind a line of clean and precise scribbling, yeah … they’re going to love this one.
The Nomad Pen uses a fidget-friendly click-button mechanism to sheath or expose a Schmidt EasyFLOW 9000 ink cartridge.
You’re going to be asking to borrow the Nomad Pen regularly.
Nomad is famous for its fabulous Horween leather accessories, including wallets, Apple Watch bands, AirPod Pro case covers, and charging accessories like the Base Station wireless charging pad and aluminum MagSafe Stands. Now you can add “Perfect Valentine’s Day Gift” to the list.
Do you want to know what tastes better than ice cream? Homemade ice cream! With the $82.95 ChefWave Elado, you and your Valentine can create easy-to-make, creamy desserts, including fro-yo, sorbet, gelato, and ice cream.
The ChefWave Elado is made of BPA-free plastic and stainless steel; it has a two-quart capacity, and it can make ice cream in just 20 minutes! There is even has an adjustable timer for custom results.
The double-insulated freeze bowl has an easy-to-use control panel with an LED digital display. The Elado comes with two freezer-safe storage tubs with easy-lock lids to prevent messes for any leftovers.
You and your sweetheart can make delicious ice creams right at home, and a recipe booklet is included for inspiration.
Available in 43″, 50″, 55″, 65″, and 75″, the 4K Amazon Fire TV Omni Series are vivid smart TVs that will make a welcome upgrade in your sweetheart’s favorite viewing space.
There are three HDMI inputs so that cable, satellite, and video game consoles can be connected, with HDMI eARC so audio equipment can be added for enhanced sound. The 65″ and 75″ models include DolbyVision for an even more cinematic experience.
One of the coolest features is that the TVs have built-in microphones so that they can be controlled hand-dree with Alexa; your sweetheart will be able to ask Alexa to turn on the TV, find, launch, and control their shows without having to find that pesky remote. But when they want privacy, there is a switch that will electronically disconnect the microphones.
Featuring the MediaTek MTK T31 chipset, the Fire TV Omni Series receives new Alexa skills, features, smart home capabilities, and voice functionality all the time!
Affordably priced, the Amazon Fire TV Omni Series starts at $284.99 for the 43″ version and goes up to $899.99 for the 75″.
Does your sweetheart regularly suffer from jetlag, the winter blues, or Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)? It’s crazy how traveling internationally, working in windowless offices, and the seasonal lack of sunlight from shorter days can manifest in fatigue, lack of concentration, and messed-up sleep patterns. The $99 Bright Health Light Therapy Lamp can help.
Non-invasive and drug-free, the 14″ tall Light Therapy Lamp is made to be easy to use. While it may look like and function as a simple desk lamp, this Light Therapy Lamp is designed to project a soothing 360º of therapeutic light with four brightness settings up to 10,000 LUX.
Bright Health says that using their Light Therapy Lamp for 20 to 30 minutes after waking is helpful. The lamp should be placed above the line of sight to maximize the light reaching the user’s eyes; eyes should be open, and the user should be facing the lamp with their eyes open during sessions, but it’s not necessary to look directly at the light.
Bright Light therapy has been used for years to help people with disturbed sleep patterns, jet lag, adjusting to night-time work hours, ADHD, seasonal depression, and to improve cognitive ability. If any of this is striking a chord, you might want to consider the Bright Health Light Therapy Lamp; it makes a very thoughtful gift.
Tell me you’re a couple without saying you’re a couple! This Valentine’s Day, you can say it with His and Her watches by Citizen. Citizen has many complementary and unisex styles, such as the Stiletto and Arezzo collections; they make a great gift that can remind your sweetheart of your shared time together.
The Citizen Arezzo is a luxury watch with a sophisticated elegance; the men’s version includes bold roman numeral markers and a three-hand dial that shows the current date. You can get it in stainless steel or two-tone stainless steel with a black or white dial.
The women’s collection has six different versions that feature either a bezel inset with diamonds or diamond accents on the dial. Citizen Arezzo men’s watches sell for $316 – $340, and women’s watches sell for $380 – $680.
The Citizenis an eye-catching unisex collection of ultra-thin timepieces featuring a modern, minimalist design. They are available in a rectangular and the newly introduced round dial. They come in various colors, including black-tone, gold-tone, silver-tone, rose-gold plated, or two-tone stainless steel. Citizen Stiletto watches sell for $425 – $525.
If your Valentine complains that their current laptop is too slow, too small, has too few ports, and doesn’t do all that they need, keep the 15″ Lenovo 9i 2-in-1 in mind!
This 2-in-1 laptop has a gorgeous 15.6″ HDR touchscreen display that offers plenty of room to open multiple spreadsheets, browser windows, and anything else they might need. It also has 10th Gen Intel Core H series processors for enough power to run even the most demanding creative tools for photo and video editing, music production, and PC gaming.
It’s also an entertainment powerhouse with a Dolby Atmos speaker system encased directly in the 360º hinge for three-dimensional audio, whether your sweetheart has it in laptop, tablet, or tent mode.
Of course, it also has best in class Intel WiFi 6, two high-speed USB-C Thunderbolt connectors, a garaged pen that charges in the port, a fingerprint reader, and that excellent Lenovo webcam privacy shutter. You can get it with up to 16GB RAM and up to a 2TB SSD.
The slate gray 15″ Lenovo starts at $1699.99.
Fine Spirits for Your Sweetheart
Not all bourbon is created equal. There’s everyday bourbon, and then there’s the kind that makes you sit straight up and say, “wow, this is what heaven tastes like.” If you’re someone who likes a good bourbon, or you’re shopping for someone who loves it, you can’t go wrong with either Bib & Tucker or Redemption Whiskey, depending on your tastes and budget.
Bib & Tucker 6-Year-Old Small Batch Bourbon is a whiskey inspired by history, specifically the 1880’s. Back then, “bib and tucker” referred to your finest outfits, and this aspires to be one of your finest bourbons.
Bib & Tucker 6-Year-Old Small Batch Bourbon is flavorful, with a sweet finish and just the right hint of that whiskey burn if you drink it straight. It packs an immense but smooth flavor into each sip and can be found for around $55, making it the perfect gift for someone who’s looking to break into higher-end bourbon!
Redemption Cognac Cask Finish is unlike any other whiskey we’ve tried. Smooth doesn’t begin to describe it. It’s all flavor, with almost none of the burn you usually get from sipping straight bourbon.
Redemption Cognac Cask Finish is rye-forward and finished in cognac casks, and I think it’s best enjoyed as-is. Redemption is so smooth and so enjoyable you don’t need to mix it with anything to enjoy it to the last sip! That quality isn’t cheap, at about $70 for a bottle, but if you want a truly decadent bourbon experience, it’s worth every penny.
If you’re shopping for a whiskey lover, keep Bib & Tucker 6-Year-Old Small Batch Bourbon and Redemption Cognac Cask Finish at the top of your list!
If your sweetheart is a coffee or tea lover, they will appreciate the $34.95 16.5-ounce ChefWave Travel French Press. Now they can perfectly steep their coffee grounds or loose tea leaves at the office or on the go, with an ultra-fine double-screen filtration system that removes more sediment.
The single-serve ChefWave Travel French Press has ceramic insulation, allowing it to serve as a travel mug, keeping coffee, tea, or other drinks warm for extended periods.
The bamboo top and sleeve make it look elegant!
If dinner nights at home with your Valentine are the norm, but spending all day in the kitchen sounds like a buzz-kill, they’ll love the $999 CookingPal Multo. It’s an autonomous cooking system that does the job of 16 kitchen appliances to create a romantic meal in moments with minimal effort. That way, you and your sweetheart can spend less time cooking and more time romancing!
The CookingPal Multo consists of two parts. The Smart Kitchen Hub, which is a custom-made tablet, is used to suggest meals; it provides step-by-step guides for a vast range of chef-tested recipes. The Smart Kitchen Appliance handles various tasks, including chopping, mixing, steaming, and cooking, so you don’t have to lift a finger. It even does the one job every chef (professional or self-proclaimed) dreads — cleaning itself up once the meals are made!
If your Valentine likes to stay organized, updated, and entertained, they will love the $249.99 Amazon Echo Show 15! It looks like a modern photo frame when mounted in portrait or landscape mode on the wall or set on its optional stand, but it can do so much more than just show their favorite photos from Amazon Photos or Facebook.
The Amazon Echo Show 15 uses widgets to display shared calendars, personal sticky notes, to-do lists, shopping lists, and reminders. If used in the kitchen, your Valentine can get daily recipe ideas, cook along hands-free with step-by-step instructions, add ingredients to their shopping cart, or order meal kits or takeout. The Echo Show 15 can also stream shows, music, podcasts, and audiobooks with Amazon Music, Spotify, and Audible.
They can add their most-used smart devices to the Echo Show 15’s home screen for quick access and see all of their compatible devices together on one dashboard.
Your Valentine’s privacy is important, so you’ll appreciate that the Amazon Echo Show 15 is built with multiple privacy controls, including a mic/camera off button and a built-in camera shutter.
If your sweetheart is a swimmer, they’re going to love the FINIS Smart Goggle! It tracks and displays their laps, splits, set time, rest time, and more while they train. The display lives in the corner of the lens, and it can be seen at a glance, allowing them to focus on their laps. After they’re done, they can connect to the app to see a shareable breakdown of their session.
It’s worth noting that the FINIS Smart Goggle will be discounted 25% off February 10-15th with the code Love2Swim.
If you’re also looking for a way to make Valentine’s Day special for the younger swimmers in your family, take a look at the $41 FINIS Mermaid Dream Fin and the $15.20 kids character goggles. The Mermaid Dream Fin Ahas an adjustable strap and foam foot inserts, so it can accommodate a range of sizes as your mini-mermaid grows.
Your Valentine loves their smoked meats. But, they also love relaxing on their couch watching the game without interruption. They can have the best of both worlds with the $239 Thermoworks Signals BBQ Alarm Thermometer.
Signals is a 4-channel, leave-in thermometer equipped with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi; it enables access to temperature data on any smart device, anywhere — including from your sweetheart’s favorite spot on the couch.
With top notes of oud and patchouli, a heart of pink pepper and saffron, and a base of white musk, the $150 3.4-ounce Roos & Roos La Favorite is a spicy, woody, and sexy-smelling unisex Eau de Parfum that you’ll be happy to give and even happier to sneak a spritz from!
Roos & Roos is a powerfully personal and inspired collaboration between mother and daughter Chantal and Alexandra Roos. “Chantal is the iconic former creative director behind fragrances like YSL’s Opium, and Alexandra is a free-spirited singer-songwriter raised to recognize the artistry of scent.”
Roos & Roos La Favorite is not too floral, it’s not too delicate, and it is something you will both enjoy wearing and smelling on each other!
Sure, you can brighten your Valentine’s day with a text or a message, but the Lovebox gives you a way to make every day extra special.
Lovebox is a Wi-Fi-enabled wooden box that opens to reveal a digital screen that displays messages, pictures, stickers, and drawings that you can send to your sweetheart through the Lovebox app. It’s the perfect way to let someone know when you’re thinking about them.
There are no chimes, pings, or beeps when a Lovebox receives a message; instead, the heart icon on the front spins enthusiastically to let your loved one know that they have a new message. The receiver can spin the heart on the front to send you back a waterfall of hearts. Awww.
Lovebox is perfect for kids, grandparents, sweethearts, and really, anyone that you want to send messages to that will brighten their day and make them think of you.
Starting at $99.99 for the original black & white Lovebox or $119.99 for the original color & photograph Lovebox, there is a perfect Lovebox for everyone. Even better, there are lots of ways to personalize your Valentine’s Lovebox with a range of spinners and even a surprise lid that has a secret insert tray within the top where little gifts can be hidden.
If your Valentine has been told to keep an eye on their blood pressure, you can show them how much you care with the clinically-validated Withings BPM.
Purposefully designed to be the most user-friendly Withings device to date, your sweetheart will be able to take blood pressure readings anytime. They’ll also be able to keep track of and monitor their cardiovascular health through the excellent Withings Health Mate app.
The $99.95 Withings BPM has a compact design with a smaller cuff and a rechargeable battery, so it is easy to travel with. BPM has an LED matrix display on its side that gives color-coded feedback, and the results automatically sync over WiFi or Bluetooth with the Health Mate app, where blood pressure reports can be generated and shared with their physician.
Cooler weather means dryer air; perhaps you’ve heard your sweetheart complaining about how dry their skin is or how their plants aren’t as perky. If that’s the case, take a look at the $59.99 Guru Nanda Halo XL. Not only is it a full-function, top-fill design humidifier that helps with dry air, it also has an essential oil diffuser built right in, so they can enjoy room-filling fragrance while humidifying simultaneously.
With a very long run-time of up to 22 hours per fill, the whisper-quiet Guru Nana Halo XL also has shut-off mist timers, optional light modes, a sleep mode, and an automatic safety shut-off. It works perfectly with or without essential oils, so if they use it in the bedroom, they can fall asleep to calming scents and wake up with hydrated skin!
Does your sweetheart need a convenient place to keep their keys, dog leash, or spare masks? Take a look at the $39.99 Hi-Jack! With a bracket that slips over those unsightly old-fashioned phone jacks from back when houses needed landlines, the 9.5″ tall by 6″ wide by 3″ deep Hi-Jack can also be mounted on any wall.
The Hi-Jack includes six arty inserts, or you can insert your favorite 4×6 photo of the two of you.
Hi-Jack is available with a gray or bronze finish, making such a thoughtful and useful gift!
If your Valentine regularly wakes up with wild hair and creases on their face, they will appreciate the gift of a 100% natural Mulberry silk Lingsilk pillowcase! Sleeping with silk pillowcases has long been touted for its ability to protect hair and keep it from frizzing, tangling, or breaking, for being gentle on delicate facial skin, but Lingsilk also has anti-mite and anti-microbial properties.
The benefits of Lingsilk Pillowcases, in particular, include:
- 100% Grade 6A mulberry silk
- 19 or 22 Momme Thickness

Helping your Valentine feel better when they are aching or stressed is just part of being a good partner, and Keoni CBD has a wide range of products that can help do just that.
If you’re looking for something that will help your sweetheart with daily wellness while soothing their body aches and pains, Keoni CBD offers $64.99 1000mg Full-Spectrum Hemp Gummies in a tub of 40 (25mg per gummy).

On the opposite end of the spectrum, the 500mg Keoni Sport Energy Gummies pack 25mg of full-spectrum CBD with guarana, green tea, ginkgo biloba, and zinc for a caffeine-free boost of energy instead of reaching for a cup of coffee at 3 pm that will just make you feel jittery later.

Give your Valentine the gift of an excellent, close shave with minimal nicks with a $69.99 Henson AL13 Razor! The Henson AL13 Razor is nicely balanced, has grooves cut into the handle to make it easy to grip and hold, and has just the right amount of heft.
Instead of using disposable plastic razor heads that cost so much and go straight into the trash, the Henson AL13 Razor uses a standard double-edge blade that you can buy almost anywhere.
When you are done with a blade, you simply drop it into a sharps container or, better yet, cover the edges and recycle it, and you can feel good knowing you aren’t tossing even more plastic into the environment.
You won’t notice them, but the Henson AL13 razor head has “exit channels” specifically designed to expel hair and shaving cream and keep the shaving path for the blade clean. Thus, with the Henson razor, your sweetheart will get a close, one-pass shave that won’t leave their face feeling like it is on fire.
The Henson razor is economical, environmentally friendly, and gives a good, comfortable shave. It seems like magic, but it’s not — unless magic is a synonym for excellent industrial design.
