For your girlfriend: lululemon Everywhere Belt Bag Mini Ripstop
Given its popularity, a lululemon Everywhere Belt Bag is as close to a foolproof gift idea as you can get in 2024. This cute mini version of the classic Everywhere Belt Bag comes in four colours and has space for your phone, keys, cards and a lip balm or two.
For your wife: Tinggly Gift Experience
I can't speak for your wife, but since I am curating this list (and therefore have creative control), I am here to tell you: She does not want a stuffed animal or cheap chocolate. Instead, treat your Mrs. to something out of the ordinary. A Tinggly gift experience covers everything from massages and wine tastings to skydiving and catamarans. P.S. — It's still up to you to book, plan and find childcare.
For your fiancée: Bold Huggie Hoops
If you're shopping for your fiancée, I'm assuming you've already bought her another very important piece of jewelry. If your budget is limited to one diamond per year, these classic hoops are a gorgeous pick for Valentine's Day.
For someone you just started dating: Smile Slippers
For someone you just started dating, you need to toe the line of thoughtful and appropriate for your first Valentine's Day together (for example, a diamond ring might be pushing it). These cute slippers are a good in-between.
For your long-distance relationship: Enigma Cruise
This next-generation dual-stimulation sonic massager has been dubbed the "Millennial Falcon" of sex toys. It "literally changed my sex life," praises one reviewer. It's a "must-have."
For your friend: Ribbed Art Deco Coupe Glasses
More champagne, please. These oh-so-cute colourful coupe glasses are perfect for Galentine's Day (or date night) cocktails.
For your roommate: Simple Modern 40 oz Tumbler
Everyone loves a water bottle (one Yahoo Canada shopping editor loves this one). Plus, you can get one for yourself too! Matching roommates = happy roommates.
For your mom: Biossance Squalane + Ectoin Overnight Rescue
Winter weather and perfect skin are a duo rarely seen together. If your skin needs a little TLC this season, this ultra-rich nighttime cream from Biossance will be your new best friend. The top-rated cream (4.8 stars on Sephora!) supports skin restoration and protects against damage.
For your crush: Kinder Surprise Valentine's Day Heart
If you want your crush to know how you feel, a heart-shaped box of chocolates is pretty telling. But, if you want your affections to remain a mystery, you can plead ignorance with these phrases: "They were only $3! My mom bought them! I got them for everyone!"
For your situationship: Moroccanoil Hand Wash
Valentine's Day gift expectations can be more than a little murky for a situationship. For people stuck on what to give their not-dating, not-not-dating somebody, a luxe handwash like this one from Moroccanoil is a safe bet. At $27, it says: I appreciate your existence. But, as hand wash, it also says: you're not immediately meeting my parents.
For the woman who has everything: Rose Quartz Eye Mask
She may have everything but if one of those things is puffy under-eye bags, this crystal eye mask will prove as soothing as it is chic.
For your pregnant wife: UGG Women's Scuffette II
Growing a human takes a considerable amount of effort, so moms-to-be should be treated to the nines come Valentine's Day. These sheepskin-lined slippers will be appreciated (and, importantly, still fit) during and post-pregnancy.
For someone who's also celebrating the Lunar New Year: Year of the Dragon Set
This luxe set contains top-selling skincare and haircare brands like Biossance, Lancôme and La Mer.
For homebodies: Kitsch Satin Sleep Set
According to many in the beauty community, silk and satin pillowcases can improve skin and hair hydration, prevent fine lines and wrinkles and lessen the likelihood of frizz — talk about beauty sleep!
For children: Love from The Very Hungry Caterpillar
If you and your family love "The Very Hungry Caterpillar," this "Love" book is sure to be appreciated.
For the skincare junkie: Dermalogica Discover Healthy Skin Kit
This travel-sized kit contains a complete daily regimen of Dermalogica bestsellers, including a Precleanse, Special Cleansing Gel, Daily Microfoliant and Skin Smoothing Cream.
For competitive couples: SERVD Couples Card Game
A great gift idea for competitive couples, SERVD gamifies everyday life and turns your daily routine into a hilarious game. The "Amazon's Choice" card game has collected over 14,000 reviews and a 4.3-star rating. "It's hilarious and really lightens our days," writes one shopper.

For the bougie gal: Chi The Sparkler
Perfect for the maximalist you want to impress, this one-inch flat iron is covered in 3,000 crystals and heats up to 425°F/218°C.
For your recently single friend: Dame Fin Finger Vibrator
This one is pretty self-explanatory, especially for someone recently single. Check out Dame's entire line for even more X-rated fun.
For the girl who's always cold: Electric Heated Faux Fur Blanket
As someone who is chronically cold, I would love a heated blanket for Valentine's Day (or any day if you're feeling generous). This one offers six heat settings for versatility.
For the girl who's always journalling: The Gratitude Journal
This 5-minute gratitude journal was created from leading psychology research and contains prompts to help you practice mindfulness, cultivate gratitude and break negative thought patterns.
