Forego the traditional Valentine’s Day box of chocolates and red roses this year and surprise your lady with gifts that are delicious, thoughtful and unique. I compiled a list of products that would be great for any lady on your list; whether she loves sweets, art, fashion or fragrance. All of these items are very affordable and are sure to surprise and delight your “galentine”, spouse, girlfriend or mom.
All of these items were sent to me via Babble Boxx, an influencer company that puts products in the hands of bloggers like me to review and share with my readers. I received all of these items free of charge in order to test them out and provide a write up of my favorite items for Valentine’s Day gifting. I have to say, any time I have received a box from them I am always so surprised at how many items they include and the quality of the items. This delivery came just in time since I’ve been looking for new ideas for gifts for Valentine’s day for my girlfriends. I also think these are great ideas for the fellas to consider for their girlfriend, fiance or spouse.
What was in my #LoveBabbleBoxx:
This box was filled to the brim with amazing items and I also received a fresh delivery of Edible Arrangements to my house the day before my box arrived. I couldn’t wait to just dive on in and see everything inside as well as enjoy my fresh fruit and chocolates! I received a watch from Casio G-Shock, a full size perfume from Perfumania, art supplies and drawing tools from Faber-Castell, a fruit arrangement and chocolates from Edible Arrangements and tasty chocolate covered treats from Sunsweet. Now let’s look closely at each of the items and why they are great gift ideas for Valentine’s Day!
1. Edible Arrangements Edible Signature Chocolate Box & Valentine’s Day Bouquet – link
I have always told my husband since we started dating over 7 years ago that if you want to ever send me something for birthdays or anniversaries or Valentine’s Day send me something that I can eat! I love Edible Arrangements because their chocolate is always so good and the fruit is fresh! I never have to worry when I send this to someone that it will show up not like the photos on their website.
This year you can add extra indulgence to your gift with the New Edible® Signature Chocolate Box. Featuring recipes designed by master chocolatier Jacques Torres, these premium melt-in-your-mouth chocolates are available in 6 incredible flavors: hazelnut crunch, caramel, raspberry, orange, pineapple and passion fruit. All of Edible’s shareable treats are perfect for surprising your special someone at home or the office this Valentine’s Day.

3. Casio G-SHOCK S Series GMA-S110CM-2A Watch – Link to Buy
We all know ladies like jewelry for Valentine’s Day but I absolutely LOVE watches and this G-Shock S Series is perfect for fitness lovers like me. It is a bit rugged but sporty and trendy at the same time. They also come in a variety of colors too which make them perfect for daytime casual looks. Plus if you have tiny wrists like me this has so many holes to adjust the size and it fit me perfectly, which is not always the case with watches. My husband liked it so much now he wants one too, so we are going to get matching watches to wear together.
Casio’s G-SHOCK S Series timepieces are created for the influential, fashion-forward woman that seeks a sportswear-inspired toughness to add to her modern style. The Casio G-SHOCK S Series GMA-S110CM-2A is the ideal gift for that special someone on your Valentine’s Day list that values advanced technology and precision time-keeping in a versatile fashion accessory. Plus if you get it in black it will go with everything in your closet and even with your fitness gear too!
4. Faber-Castell CASTELL 9000® Graphite Design set, PITT® Artist Pen 8 count Wallet in Black, PITT® Artist Pen Studio Gift Box of 24 and Gelatos® Dolce 2 Gift Set
When I was younger I was very big into art – drawing, paint, calligraphy. As I got older I didn’t spend anytime doing these things anymore, but when I saw this in my Babble Boxx I almost cried. I truly love art and being creative and I’m so happy to receive all of these great tools to pick it back up again! Faber-Castell has a long history of 256 years of creating the highest quality products. Our expansive assortment of art products for Professional Artists, Hobby Artists, Crafters, Students and Children makes us a Companion for Life and a great gift option for creative types for Valentine’s Day
I am so excited to get some drawing pads and canvases and make art that I can give to friends or hang in my home. These colors are so vivid and beautiful and this is also a great gift for anyone you know who loves art, drawing and may not have the tools they need to pick it back up. I will be sure to post when I do some of my own artwork.
5. Sunsweet PlumSweets
Everyone loves chocolate for Valentine’s Day, but this is a healthier option for those with a sweet tooth. At first I admin I thought prunes would be an interesting gift, but they are delicious! I put them in a little bowl and snack on them during the day or when I am working on my computer.
Sweet and delicious decadence of dark chocolate paired with scrumptious, bite-size pieces of Amaz!n Prunes, PlumSweets are creamy on the outside and chewy on the inside. PlumSweets features diced prunes coated in premium dark chocolate and are made with real fruit and no high fructose corn syrup. A great way to treat yourself, especially during Valentine’s Day. Go ahead, indulge.

Studies have shown that eating prunes supports bone health, especially in postmenopausal women. Just 5-6 prunes per day, helped to prevent bone loss. Prunes are a source of potassium – a mineral associated with a decreased risk of bone loss and osteoporosis – which helps to increase bone mineral density while reducing bone breakdown. Prunes also contain magnesium, which is important for bone structure, and vitamin K, which plays an important role in bone mineralization One serving of Dark Chocolate PlumSweets (40 g) contains 150 calories.
I hope this Valentine’s Day Gift Guide Round Up gave you some ideas for items you may want to get for someone you love or for yourself. I’m a firm believer in pampering yourself too 🙂
