5 Unique Valentine’s Day Gifts For Your Wife

The perfect Valentine's Day gifts for her. Here are 5 unique Valentine's Day gifts to amp up your usuals and keep your “happy wife, happy life” game strong.


Candles are a classic gift and for good reason. They provide a lovely ambience no matter the occasion and can be used over and over again.  If your leading lady loves the luminous lights, a fun twist on the typical go-to gift is to turn it into a fun activity. Try out a candle making class together as your Valentine’s date.

Several major cities are home to businesses that host workshops like Candlefish in Atlanta and Charleston. They provide the supplies and tutorial, and then you get to leave with the candle that you made! It’s a fun experience to share together and you get to bring home a keepsake that you’ll actually use.


Let’s be honest, wine is never a bad gift idea. However, you can totally up your game this year by bringing home a customized bottle of bubbly. You can choose a pre-made design or create your own, adding in a personal touch like your anniversary date, your wedding vows, or the lyrics to your favorite song. You can also design etched wine glasses for a gift that you’ll be able to use for future romantic occasions.

Chocolate. The real show stopper of Valentine’s Day (besides your wife!). Let’s be clear- chocolate should never be substituted or left out. So, give your lady the chocolate she deserves, but also it’d be a sweet touch to give any chocolate lover this super cool chocolate soap. It’s a fun spin on the most traditional of all Valentine’s gifts, and won’t be gone in one sitting like the box of chocolates might be! (There’s also wine soap and flower soap!)


Every woman deserves a beautiful bouquet of fresh flowers. If you really want to share your love with a floral arrangement, consider purchasing a flower delivery subscription. This will ensure that your wife is surprised with beautiful blooms not only on Valentine’s Day, but for months to come- because your love for her lasts all year long!

Jewelry is always a nice gesture, and you can make it even more special by adding a personal touch. Gift her a simple and modern necklace with the lyrics to your wedding song finally etched on it. If your wife doesn’t wear a lot of jewelry or doesn’t have space for another piece, have your wedding rings engraved. You can inscribe your initials, your wedding date, or a short phrase.

Any of these unique Valentine’s Day gifts will let your wife know that after all these years, she’s still the queen of your heart!
