Breakfast in bed

Of course you can shop for candy at the store, but if you’re feeling ambitious, try to make your own Valentine’s Day chocolates to give the one you love. Chocolate truffles look complicated, but they’re easy to adapt to dietary restrictions or food preferences, and they’re also pretty easy to make. As with most DIY gifts, she’ll definitely be impressed by the effort. If you want to give homemade candy a try, this recipe from Alton Brown is a good place to start.
You don’t have to spring for a day at the spa to show your love, but a gift that lets her pamper herself — say some skincare treatments, like the ones from Kate Ryan featured below, an exfoliant from Scrubz, and a lavender aromatherapy eye pillow, like this one from Organic Crush — definitely says I care.

When you’re buying Valentine’s Day jewelry, it pays to pick something with a little meaning. If you’re not sure how to do that with jewelry, a charm bracelet might be the answer. They range from luxe (like one from Tiffany’s) to under $10, like the one from Pammytail pictured below, and you can select charms that match her interests. The best part? After you start a charm bracelet, next year’s gift is a lot easier to choose — decide on a new charm and make it a “charming” Valentine’s Day tradition.
