Whether under your desk or in front of your sofa, a foot massager with heat, rolling, vibrating, and shiatsu squeezing is a luxury that I can never live without since getting our first a few years ago. I use mine under my desk literally 5+ times a day LOL! This foot massager from Mountrax is absolutely amazing - it heats up to 122*F, comes with a remote, fits feet up to men's US size 12, has 3 kneading functions, and 3 air compression intensities. Not only does it feel fabulous, it's beautiful too (coming in black, grey, or white), not an eye sore like some can be. This is an amazing Valentine's gift that no one would consider returning, and the whole family can enjoy!! Watch my full demo below and shop on Amazon for Mountrax Foot Massager+* (use 15% OFF Code: WBEC9WDH expires 4/1/2024)- while shopping, be sure to check out all of Mountrax's great products including a 3D black out heated eye mask+* and 5-in-1 scalp massager*!
COUPLES CONVO CARDS / GAME
âIt gets really easy to settle into couch potato mode when a relationship gets on in the years. But you don't have to shell out big bucks on fancy dates to stay connected. Sometimes whipping out a new game and a bottle of wine is the perfect evening!!! There are a TON of conversation card games out there, everything from Prompta's Conversation Cards for New Parents+* to Risky Couples: 150 Spicy Dares & Questions for Your Partner*.
Whether we're talking a FULL massage chair like the Molyex+* or a portable massage cushion+* that can be used in just about any chair or sofa, this is definitely one of those products we've all wanted for like, forever, but perhaps never thought we could justify splurging on. This is the PERFECT valentine's gift to spoil your loved one, and yourself, am I right!?
Whether it's a one-off curated variety box or a full year's subscription of monthly deliveries, these always make incredibly thoughtful and fun gifts!! From Tokyo Treat+* (Japanese snacks, drinks and candies) to D8te Box* (romantic activities for couples to build and connect) to Vinebox* (with monthly wines, suggested pairings, and tasting videos) - it's easy to find the PERFECT box for your loved one, or the both of you!
Whether your loved one suffers from migraines or you just want to pamper them with something nice, they will love a Renpho heated eye massager! Their OG Eyeris 1 eye massager+* is amazing, or go for the latest, the Eyeris 3+*, which comes with a cold compress insert!! Side note, this pairs REALLY well with a chair / cushion massager and foot massager!!
Are matching couples stuff super cheesy... or super cute?? If you think the latter, there's no better time to buy some matchy matchy clothes or bathing suits than Valentine's Day!! Check out these couples and family matching Valentine's clothes from Pat Pat+* (scroll around for other themes, beach wear, you. name it)! SO FUN!!!

I'm all about gifting experiences!!! So whether you snag tickets to the reunion tour of your loved ones favorite band from high school, or season's box seats at their beloved sports team, or book flights and a week at an all inclusive over water bungalo resort in the Maldives, experiences can be incredibly heartfelt. Knowing you took the time to research and plan, focusing on their interests or passion, it means as much to them as the actual gift!! Plus, I mean, you know you're going to have an amazing time joining them on that adventure, too!!! What memories!! So, yeah, tickets are the gift that keep on giving!!! If looking for some travel inspo, check out Kayak's vacation packages and their fun Explore page*!!
NO / LOW BUDGET GIFTS:
Because you don't have to spend money to say I love you! It really is the thought that counts!!
Putting together a photo collage can be more or less free - find your favorite photos of you two from the past year, or the past decade, print them out at home, and fill up an old cork board you have lying around! Spend a little more and you get make a custom calendar, framed photo gallery, etc. So thoughtful, and definitely something you will both enjoy!
HONEY DO COUPON BOOK
This one can be a stand alone gift for someone on a super tight budget, or free add-on with another gift!! But be careful, don't include anything you *should* be doing as a decent human being and loving partner... You want to put in EXTRAS here. 30 minute shoulder massage. Vacuuming out and washing your car. Breakfast in bed. Taking the kids out of the house for the day. Stuff you know they would love for you to do, but they would never ask you for, and they can just claim it whenever they need to!
So, what do you think!?? What would YOU love to receive most? Have you been inspired to gift any of these to your loved one? Did I miss some other great ideas?? Leave a comment below and... have a wonderful Valentine's Day!!!
