Brinker & Eliza The Best Is Yet To Come necklace

Brinker & Eliza

This isn't your run-of-the-mill Valentine's Day heart necklace. 

The Best Is Yet To Come necklace makes a statement with its 24-karat gold plated chain and eye-catching heart pendant, the latter of which features a unique etched design that we love. We also love that this was made by a woman-owned small business. 

This can be worn with a variety of looks, ranging from a sundress to jeans and a simple white T-shirt. This would make a great gift for the girlfriend who loves jewelry that is gold and bold. 

Mejuri organic pearl hoops 


Your significant other will love these timeless, keepsake earrings from Mejuri. The organic pearl hoops are made with freshwater pearls and 18-karat gold vermeil, the latter of which is a layer of gold set on top of sterling silver. So not only are you getting pearls, but also gold at an affordable price point. 

These hoops have a 4.7-star rating on Mejuri's site. One customer wrote, "The quality exceeded my expectations, these pretty earrings are a perfect accessory for both casual and dressy occasions." 

Pisces Bracelet


This beautiful bracelet from Anthropologie offers a luxurious look for an incredibly affordable price. 

The bracelet is made of brass and set with baguette-style cubic zirconia. This is a great alternative to heart jewelry, if that isn't your girlfriend or wife's thing. The crystals and the delicacy of the brass bracelet will still make it feel like a special gift. 

The Pisces bracelet is impactful enough to be worn on its own yet neutral enough to where it can be layered with other chain-link bracelets. 

UGG Scuffette II Slipper 

Ugg Women's Scuffette Shearling Mule Slippers

The comfort that comes with slipping your feet into Ugg shearling slippers is unmatched. 

If your significant other doesn't have a pair of Ugg slippers yet, treat them to a pair. These come in sizes 5 through 12. You can choose between five colors, including red and the brand's classic Chestnut suede. 

These slippers have a 4.6-star rating out of more than 3,500 ratings. One reviewer wrote, "I bought these for my fiancé and she absolutely loves them! You won't catch her walking around in the house without these slippers on."

Lavender & chamomile deluxe gift set

Uncommon Goods

If your significant other loves to indulge in self-care, treat them to this soothing spa set from Uncommon Goods. 

Your giftee will find it easy to unwind with all that's part of this gift set, including a body butter, a bath soak, a calming ritual spray, a beeswax candle, a small dried flower bouquet and dried flower confetti. 

All of the products are handmade by an herbalist and are vegan, so they contain no artificial ingredients. This order also conveniently comes with a gift box, making gifting this present easier than ever. 

Quince Mongolian cashmere sweatpants


What we love about these cashmere sweatpants from Quince is that they are affordable without skimping on quality. Mongolian cashmere is considered premium in the cashmere world, so rest assured you're getting the best of the best in these pants. 

One of our writers, CBS Essentials' shopping expert Rachel Center, owns these and loves them. "I will never go back to ordinary sweatpants. Quince's cashmere sweatpants are deliciously soft, have a great fit and are so comfortable that I've worn them for multiple days in a row." What's more, these don't require a trip to the dry cleaner. 

These come in eight colors, including navy and burgundy, and are available in sizes XS to XL.

These include "you deserve the ______ award", "I am kind of obsessed with your ______" and I love you _____ my ______." 

Speak from the heart and your loved one will cherish the book forever. 

The Valentine's day mini book 


One of the most impactful gifts you can get your partner for Valentine's is something personalized. This Valentine's Day mini book from Papier allows you to fill up to 40 pages (minimum 30) of photos you and your boo. 

This can be photos of you two from the last year, or a recent trip you went on. There are six covers to choose from, each of which leaves space for memorable photo. 

Keep in mind these take 11 days to get to you, so make sure to select the "Expressed Tracked" shipping option at checkout to arrive in time for Valentine's Day. 

Single rose jewelry box

Single Rose Jewelry Box
Rose Box NYC

The biggest problem with getting Valentine's Day flowers is that they only last about a week or so. What's so genius about Rose Box is that your significant other can cherish the gesture for much longer (a year to be exact). 

What's also great about this product is that it's not just for display. Under the rose you'll find a functional drawer -- great for potentially storing another gift, such as earrings or a ring. 

Elevated Craft Hybrid cocktail shaker

Elevated Craft Hybrid cocktail shaker

Backed by a lifetime warranty, this stainless steel, dishwasher-safe, double-walled, vacuum-insulated cocktail shaker promises to be "the last shaker you will ever buy." It's one of the best gifts for a budding bartender.

"This is the absolute perfect cocktail shaker," a five-star reviewer raved. "First, it is insulated so your hands don't freeze. Second, there is a measurer in the cap. Third, the cap twists off to expose the strainer that is built in.....This is the fourth one I have bought. I gave two as gifts and now have two of them for myself. The gift recipients loved them as well."
