What to put in your Valentine’s basket

The best part of Valentine’s gift baskets is that you can tailor it to the recipient, making something special and specifically for them. Create a wonderful Valentine’s Day gift basket by including a good variety of items like the recommendations below!

Something to eat

Delicious treats should be a part of every gift basket! Especially for Valentine’s Day, people are usually expecting some chocolates to be involved. If you think the recipient wouldn’t want a chocolate gift basket, fill the whole basket with favorite treats!

You could go with sweets like an assortment of candy or bake something filled with love! Savory snacks are a great option too, like exotic chips or cheeses.

Tip: Choose a theme for your basket so it feels cohesive (e.g., a charcuterie basket where you include all the staples of a great charcuterie board as well as a personalized cutting board to top off the gift).

Something to do or make together

The best gift experiences don’t end when the gift is opened. Use your gift basket as an opportunity to create a special moment by including an activity. You might include tickets to an event, a game to play, a puzzle to solve, painting supplies for a date night, etc.

Tip: Include supplies for an activity you can do together! Get inspired by these date night gift boxes.

Something to wear

Include something that will last them and that will remind them of you whenever they wear it! Warm and cozy items like blankets and fuzzy socks are great to include in gift baskets. Funny t-shirts and hats are also fun, especially if you’re putting together a basket for a guy.

Accessories are good too because they’re usually small enough to fit in your gift basket. You could include a surprising big-ticket item like a nice watch or jewelry among the other items. Hiding an unexpectedly expensive item among the candy and other small fillers is a great way to surprise your valentine.

Something from their fandom

Is your valentine a big fan of something? Fill their basket with their favorite things from their favorite fandom! I would go crazy for a Harry Potter gift basket.

Is there any movie franchise, book series, video game, anime, sports team, etc. that they’re really into? Make that the theme of your basket!

Something romantic or sentimental

This is a MUST for your Valentine’s Day gift basket. This is an opportunity to express your love. Including a meaningful gift is a great way to show what’s in your heart.

Here are some ideas for inspiration:

  • Keepsakes from past dates or special moments you’ve had together
  • A bottle full of notes about what you love about them
  • A small album of your favorite photos together
  • Something you created or made for them (e.g., a poem, a song, a letter, a painting, a knitted item, etc.)

You could also include anything that has special meaning or is a symbol of your love (e.g., my husband and I ate at Denny’s several times while on our honeymoon because we were broke, so I might include a Denny’s patch or some other merch).

Something for self-care

Encourage your love to take time for themself this Valentine’s Day. You love them, they should love themselves too. Here are some ideas for what you might include:

  • Things to help them relax: Massage gift card, heated neck and shoulder pad, adult coloring books, etc.
  • Things to help them sleep: Sleep mask, ear plugs, weighted blanket, etc.
  • Things that promote mental health: Meditation app subscription, books that promote self-growth, aromatherapy kit, etc.

Something personalized

Personalization always elevates a gift because it makes the recipient feel extra special to receive something that’s made specifically for them. Seeing something engraved with your name creates an instant connection and brings up warm, happy feelings.

Try to personalize some aspect of your gift basket/box, such as the container itself or one of the gifts inside. You can include a gift that has a special message engrave on it, or an image of the two of you etched on it.

Something decorative

Include a nice decorative item in your gift box so they’ll have a reminder of you and the wonderful Valentine’s Day you had together! This is your chance to give them something that will look good in their home, office, car, etc.

Try to give them something that fits in with their style. Look around at how they decorate their living and working spaces and try to get something to match their aesthetic.

Tip: Your decorative item can be sentimental/romantic. Try giving them something symbolic, like a figurine of something you both like or an item that represents where you had your first date.

Something useful

What does your valentine need? Is there a practical item you can think of to include? Is there something they’ve been asking for?

  • Something they can use in the kitchen: Personalized cutting board, funny dish towels, meat thermometer (’cause your love’s so hot), etc.
  • Something they can use in the office: A nice pen, desk accessories, a beverage warmer, etc.
  • Something they can use in the car: Air fresheners, magnetic phone holder, sun shade, etc.

I hope you enjoyed this collection of Valentine’s basket ideas. Have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!
