Valentine’s Day Gifts for Everyone
Favorite gifts for February 14
It's hard to figure out what to buy on Valentine's Day. You want to honor those you love with something special, yet you don't want to go over the top - at least, most of the time.
Here are our favorite gift suggestions for this special holiday.
Some things are meant to be kept close to your heart forever. Give a sweet gift this Valentine’s Day that they can snuggle, cherish, and enjoy for a lifetime. This super cute company offers gift sets centered around a teddy bear. You start by going to SendFuzz and selecting one of the softest and plushest teddy bears you will ever find. Then add a gift set and personalized greeting card. Fuzz Therapy will package it all up in a gorgeous keepsake gift box and ship it directly to the recipient. Fuzz Therapy gift sets range from chewy gourmet caramels to signature Bear Necessi-Teas, a tender book and love quote cards, a lavender anti-stress ball, or the ultimate nap kit complete with a cozy blanket to snuggle with. Prices start at $89.
Whether the goal is taking your status from "single" to "in a relationship," getting that sweet revenge on an ex, or simply making your friends epically jealous, the power is in the presentation. And when it comes to Valentine's Day, don't be caught dead on your Facebook timeline without the right arm-candy, a fabulous setting and a crisp, sparkling glass of Cupid-friendly rosé. Try one of these four rosés this Valentine's Day:
- Mia Sparkling Moscato Rosé ($12) - with its light strawberry pink hue and fruity aroma, this regal bottle is perfect for a glittering girls night out.
- Freixenet Cordon Negro Rosé ($12) - It's got a natural sweetness and graceful finish that speaks for itself. Whether you're spending Valentine's Day hiking to watch the sunset or treating your love to an evening sailboat cruise, make sure you bring along this low-maintenance wine.
- Mia Rosé 2013 ($10) - Dependably delicious, easy-drinking and modern, it cuts right to the point of why the Mia collection is so popular. It's a great no-fuss Valentine's Day gift for your favorite co-workers, your best friend or your love.
- Garbó Rosé 2012 ($19) - A photo of you pouring this rose-petal colored perfection will elicit visions of romantic sunsets and delicious decadent meals from your captive audience.

The Harvard Sweet Boutique has created an amazing heart-shaped shortbread cookie because bakery owner and founder Sue George is running in the 2015 Boston Marathon to raise funds for the Boston Children's Hospital Miles for Miracles team. As part of the race, Sue will run in honor of Keelan Peterson and a portion of proceeds from purchases of the gift packages will benefit the Children’s Fund. People can also donate directly to the cause by visiting Sue's Marathon Page. $45
In another vein, consider the bakery's Anti Valentine cookies. Whether you want to send a spiteful message to an ex or simply indulge your own bitter heart, this gift is perfect for anyone who has felt the sting of Cupid's arrow. They look like your typical conversation heart cookies, except they’re inscribed with less-than-romantic messages. $25
