Best Home Gifts

Goodnow Farms Chocolate Bars

Price: $14

It’s okay to buy her chocolates for Valentine’s Day, just make it thoughtful. This is single-origin chocolate made with fresh cocoa butter. It’s on another level.

Personalized Yankee Candles

Price: $20+

Candles are a go-to romantic gift, but if you opt for a more personalized variety — especially one with one of their favorite photographs — they’ll know you put some thought into it.

Society6 Prints

Price: $27+

If she won’t like the abstract print, pick another from Society6’s hundred-page-long collection. They’re affordable and they’re not Ikea levels of ubiquitous.

Heart-Shaped Green Philodendron

Price: $35

A sublte, easy-going plant with crudely heart-shaped leaves? It’s an upgrade over roses that won’t fall to pieces in a week.

East Fork “The Mug”

Price: $36

Set a calendar reminder for Tuesday at 11:55 a.m. and go to East Fork’s website. At noon, the company restocks Asheville-made internet-famous coffee mugs. Known as #TheMug on Instagram, it’s one hell of an interesting story.

D.S. & Durga Big Sur After Rain Candle

Price: $65

What D.S. & Durga gets more right than other fragrance and candle companies is the funk. Unafraid to lean into weirder scents allows them to build a product like Big Sur After Rain, which smells just as salty and lush as you’re imagining.

Herman Miller: A Way of Living

Price: $90

Do they drone on and on about MCM this and Noguchi that? Do they have the link to the Eames Lounge Chair favorited? Buy them Herman Miller’s history book.

Made In Carbon Steel Wok

Price: $99

Like cast iron, but lighter and easier to care for, carbon steel cookware was traditionally a chef’s tool. Made In’s sturdy, balanced carbon steel cookware wants to change that.

Restoration Hardware Luxury Plush Robe

Price: $119

RH’s robe is a cozy post-shower vibe that rivals even the best of blankets.

Authenticity50 Wool Duvet

Price: $339

Is she always cold? Are you always cold? Get Authenticity50’s new wool duvet, which sold out twice since becoming available. It’s all the advantages of down, without cleanliness problems.

Nebia Spa Shower 2.0

Price: $499

Nebia’s second go at making a spray droplet showerhead saves water (and stupid money), looks slick and makes for a more relaxing shower experience. That’s a hard combo to beat.

Dims. Composed Vanity

Price: $595

Not everybody is a furniture-for-Valentine’s-Day person, and that’s fine. For those that are, this original piece from Dims. and designer Ladies & Gentlemen is just about perfect.

Best Adventure Gifts

Opinel No.10 Corkscrew Knife

Price: $30

A gorgeous wood-handled pocket knife with a blade large enough for picnicking, and a corkscrew too? Yeah, that’ll do the trick.

Activist Raw Manuka Honey

Immune support, digestive benefits and beauty applications. Whether you believe the claims or not, manuka honey is a tasty addition to granola or tea.

Yeti Rambler 26oz

Price: $30

Even Yeti’s water bottle isn’t too burly for Valentine’s Day.

Sunski Dipseas

Price: $58

Sunski’s polarized Dipseas look nothing like the recycled plastic they’re made of. (They also could be mistaken for shades that are twice as expensive.)

Headspace One-Year Subscription

Apparently, we’re all burnt out and could use a little quality time with ourselves. Headspace provides instruction for meditation rookies, no fancy studio necessary.

Prana Sky Canyon Jogger

Dyson Airwrap

Price: $549

When Dyson’s Airwrap curler came out, it sold out immediately and remained that way for months. There was a curling panic. It was, and is, one of the best haircare products ever made.

Best Tech Gifts

Brouk & Co. Travel Cord Roll
