Shopping for Valentine’s Day gifts can sometimes feel like a cliché. You’re surrounded by bouquets of flowers, cheesy stuffed animals or unimaginative heart-shaped boxes of chocolate! If you want to hunt for a V-Day present that’ll actually surprise and delight your partner, check out Etsy’s selection of creative Valentine’s Day gifts instead.
If you didn’t already know, Etsy is the best place to find gifts from small businesses and makers. I do a lot of my shopping on Etsy these days, especially for birthdays and holidays. Nothing feels generic, or like a gift you scooped up at Walgreen’s an hour before your date. Most Etsy gifts are niche and personal, so the recipient will know you made some effort securing the perfect pick.
Many people are taking their Valentine’s Day celebrations to their homes this year, but your V-Day gift can still be ~experiential~ without requiring you to leaving your space. Instead of arguing over what you’re going to watch on Netflix for the fourth time that week, plan a little date (with the help of Etsy) that doesn’t involve gluing your eyes to the TV screen. February 14 is all about getting creative showing your loved one how much you enjoy spending time with them.
We’ve got a little bit of everything below, from gifts for your actual valentine to cute illustrated cards for your long-distance friends, plus tasty treats, sparkly jewelry, a self-care set and a way to display your love for all to see (when they visit your apartment, at least).
Check out our top 10 Etsy Valentine’s Day gifts below—just order fast so that your gifts get to your place before Valentine’s Day!
Our mission at STYLECASTER is to bring style to the people, and we only feature products we think you’ll love as much as we do. Please note that if you purchase something by clicking on a link within this story, we may receive a small commission of the sale.
