Chefman Precision Control Gooseneck Kettle

Equipped with five temperature settings, this gooseneck kettle is the idea tool for crafting the perfect cup of coffee or tea. It even has a “warm” setting to keep water ready to go for a second cup and gently beeps when it’s ready so you don’t forget (the latter feature was an unexpected favorite from me when I got this kettle last year).

The Bookbrews monthly subscription box delivers so much more than just new reading material; it encourages your loved one to relax and indulge. Besides a book from your recipient’s favorite genre (fiction, nonfiction, romance and more), the box also includes tea or coffee and high quality chocolate.

Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask

Vitamin C, coconut oil and shea butter work overnight in this beloved lip mask by Laneige that ensures lips are soft and plump by morning.

JadeYoga Harmony Yoga Mat

JadeYoga’s Harmony mat is a grippy upgrade that helps hands and feet stay right in place. It’s cushy enough to be comfortable on knees and hips, but doesn’t compromise balance in challenging poses. I’ve been using mine for over five years, and I’m happy to report it’s still in great shape.


Bokksu Box Japanese Snack & Candy Subscription

Bokksu is a creative way to bring a little slice of Japan to your Valentine’s door. Each month, they’ll receive a carefully crafted box full of delicious treats to enjoy. You can sign up for a single delivery or purchase up to a year-long subscription with monthly shipments.

Keeping your partner hydrated is the ultimate display of affection. Undoubtedly the tumbler of the hour, this Stanley cup is large, in charge and comes in a multitude of colors. It’s dishwasher-safe for easy cleaning, and even though it is 40-ounces in size, it has a narrow base that fits easily into a car’s cup holder.

Our favorite essential oil diffuser encourages rest, relaxation and all-around good vibes on Valentine’s Day—or any other day of the year. It can be set to 4- or 8-hour run times and has an optional LED light that emits a soft glow. Plus, the minimalist design looks cute even when it’s turned off.


Kindle Paperwhite (16 GB)

If your Valentine is a voracious reader, consider a Kindle. Sure, it’s not the exact same thing as holding a book in your hands, but the Paperwhite offers far more features than your standard paperback. It can hold a ton of books (great for frequent travelers) and offers added assistance like adjustable lighting and text size. It’s also waterproof, which is perfect for beach lounging or long tub soaks.


Bodum Chambord French Press Coffee Maker

There’s something peaceful about any morning coffee routine, but the low-tech, methodical approach to a French press in particular is almost a meditation. If your partner is a coffee connoisseur, the Bodum Chambord is a kitchen gadget they’re sure to love.
