Gift a Scentbird subscription


If you're stumped on what perfume or cologne to pick out for him or her, try a Scentbird subscription. Here's how it works: 8 mL bottles are filled with fragrances from brands like Marc Jacobs and Versace. That equals about 140 sprays of perfume. Your loved one can test different scents, one bottle a month, without having to commit to a full bottle. Choose from a 3-month, 6-month or 12-month subscription.

Three Scentbird bottles cost less than one full-size perfume, at $44. And if you gift a 6-month or 12-month subscription, you'll even receive one or two free fragrances yourself, respectively. Your loved one will receive an email notifying them of your subscription gift, so this idea even works if you've procrastinated until Valentine's Day.

Book a Cameo message


Send them a personalized Valentine's video message from their favorite celebrity, from Gabby Douglas to Lisa Vanderpump to Kevin from "The Office," via Cameo. Prices vary depending on the talent. Celebrities will create your Cameo within seven days, or 24 hours for an additional cost.
