15 Unique Ideas for Valentine’s Day Gifts for the Kitchen and Home
Personalized That Gifts Say What You Really Mean
Are you looking for some creative and meaningful ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day with your significant other? Well, we have some ideas! Inspired by some of our smaller items, these will serve as a way to spend time together and make for a truly memorable day.
It’s the unconventional, personalized gifts that really hit home because they take an extra degree of thoughtfulness, appreciation, and love. That’s the whole point of the holiday, isn’t it?
With that in mind, here’s our list of 15 creative (get it? 14 with one for good luck?) , unconventional Valentine’s Day ideas that will be sure to inspire some romance and fun.
1. Breakfast in Bed
There’s something that feels so nice about waking up early, slipping out of bed quietly, and whipping up a delicious breakfast in bed for your partner. What could make for a better start to the day, then being gently woken by the aroma of your favorite meal, maybe a hot cup of coffee, too.
With that said, you’ll need a tray to serve it on. Our Breakfast in Bed Tray will help you get Valentine’s Day started off on the right foot.
2. Smudge out the Past; Clean the Slate
One of the nicest ways to bring up the mood in the home is to light some incense or smudge. Light a small amount of your favorite choice of sage, cedar, sweetgrass, or a combination, and let it smolder and smoke.
This is an old practice that indigenous people have used to clear out old, negative energies (or relationships) and revitalize their space. Smudge out the past with your loved one using our beautiful incense burner or blue sage smudge stick, with lavender.
3. Bake some Sourdough
There’s nothing that gives quite a sense of being home like the smell of fresh-baked bread wafting through the air. With a sourdough starter that you feed and grow, you can turn this into part of a romantic day together. Use the starter and bake some bread.
Enjoy the anticipation together and the pleasant torture of the aroma you both helped to create. When you’ve had your fill, you can store the bread in a Modern Walnut Wood Bread Box - a perfect excuse to bake some memories that will last far longer than the sourdough.
4. Toast to Your Future
There’s something special about enjoying a flute of perfectly chilled champagne with your love by the fire, the lake, or wherever your lover’s lane may be. With our Modern Walnut Wood and Steel Ice Bucket, you won’t have to leave each other’s side for a second: even if you’d like a second glass of champagne. Keep it cool and close to hand - and drink to your futures together!
5. Romantic Charcuterie
Here is another classic, romantic way to enjoy time together on Valentine’s Day. Treat yourselves to some lovely charcuterie together, and maybe open that nice bottle of wine you’ve been saving.
It is a delectable way to celebrate what you have - and our Live-edge Charcuterie Board is a beautiful piece to help make it special.
6. Get Closer Over the Waverly Table
Valentine’s Day is about being together, so don’t let anything get in the way of that - not even a table! Enjoy your champagne or chocolates over our Waverly Side Table. Elegant, functional, and small enough to let the two of you get close and really enjoy each other’s company.
7. Plant an Abundant Garden Together
Creating a garden with fertilizer from the home is amazing because you are creating a complete, natural life cycle together. An elegant Noaway Compost Bin is a surprisingly romantic gift.
Create a living garden that will feed you both, and then use the leftovers and compost bin to feed your garden. It’s a circle of life that you have created and will enjoy together.
8. Attract Birds and Bees with Seep Pops
Ok, maybe flowers have been done before, but not like this. Our Seed Pops are a wonderful way to plant something beautiful together and are easy on the budget.
They easily plant into your garden or soil and will grow into beautiful flowers - a perfect symbol of the life you’ve created with your partner.
This one is great for kids too!
9. Set the Mood with Candles in the Live Edge Candle Holder
Don’t forget about the power of candles. Understated light and the aroma of scented candles are a staple for Valentine’s Day. Our Live Edge Candleholder makes a perfect vessel for your candles and helps to set the mood, just right.
10. Long-distance Relationship?
We aren’t all lucky enough to be physically together on Valentine’s Day, but that doesn't mean you can’t still spend time with each other. Spend the night together comfortably with the Work Board Lap Desk. Video call and spend your time looking into each others’ eyes and hearing each others’ voices.
Sometimes, it’s not the miles that separate us, but our busy schedules. Stay in touch and in love using the power of the pen! Use the lap desk as a writing board. It’s a fun, low-tech way to keep in touch.
11. Create a Unique Board of Decadence
Chocolate-covered strawberries, red velvet cake - it seems that the most decadent desserts are romantic by nature. So, why not assemble a lavish board of chocolates and treats and enjoy the finer things together?
12. Share a Fondue on the Narrow Cutting board
Another fun, creative way to enjoy each other’s company and splurge a little. Fondue is a luxurious and enjoyable way to celebrate Valentine’s Day, but there is one choice we can’t help you with: will it be cheese or chocolate?
13. Love to Cook?
Spending time creating in the kitchen is one of the most wholesome and lovely ways to spend time together. Try this; Cook up some authentic Italian pizzas together with the Round Gunstock Board. The way to the heart is through the stomach, after all. Work together or surprise your partner - it’s romantic either way.
14. Celebrate your Lives Together
Get your favorite photos and memories and place them on a new live-edge floating shelf, to be cherished for years to come. Home improvement may not be the first thing that comes to mind for a romantic gift, but adding to your shared space is a great way to show your sentiments.
15. When the Time is Right...Set the mood with the alluring aromas of a Palo Santo smudge stick and slip into something a little more comfortable.
We hope these ideas will inspire you and help you to make it as special of a day as you deserve. Whether you celebrate our collection or not, we wish you a wonderful Valentine’s Day full of joy!
