Timeless Valentine’s Gifts Your SO Will Love You For

Moving towards a more sustainable lifestyle means taking all chances to give sustainably as well. This doesn’t always mean handing your MIL glass straws on her birthday; sustainability and durability go hand in hand. The more (and longer!) you use an item, the less wasteful that purchase has become. As I try to implement this in my own life, it also means giving gifts that follow the same narrative. Although they’re often more expensive, higher-quality gifts that can last a lifetime as opposed to single-use items are becoming increasingly popular, and we love it. Here are some timeless gift ideas for any SO in your life:

For Her:

The Bordering-On-Lingerie Clothing

Mirror Palais FiFiFou Dress Ivory – $495

Because lingerie is always cool for V-Day, but give her something she can wear everyday and she will love you!! This dress has the best of both worlds.

The Cute Tote

The perfect gift: This tote, roses, her fave foods, and watching Netflix all night. You’re welcome!

The Locket

Knobbly Studio Garçonne Locket – $325

So she can put a picture of you in it (or, more likely, a picture of her dog). But seriously, she’ll keep this forever.

The Cute AF Self Care Kit

OK, I take it back, *this* one you know she’ll use. Plus the wipes are compostable and biodegradable, yay!

For Him:

Alterior Design For Mister Green Card Case – $119

Why does every single man I know complain about losing and/or breaking their wallet constantly? Whatever, just get him a nice wallet he won’t forget about.

This 3-layer, waterproof jacket is the ultimate gift for any guy who lives in the Midwest or anyone that just needs a coat really.

The Perfect Pen

Baronfig Squire Rollerball Pen – $55

Best for: anyone that wants an egronomic-shaped aluminum pen that will last them forever.

Not good for: Someone that will inevitably lose this $55 pen the week they get it.

The Luxury Shave Set

Proraso Travel Shave Kit – $15

Because guys aren’t as advanced as us ladies in the beauty realm; give them something that will make them wonder what the Irish-Spring-to-the-face skincare routine has them missing.

For Anyone:

The Unisex Shopper

Telfar Global Medium White Shopping Bag – $202

Honestly, the underrated it-bag of the year, Telfar’s bags come in every size and color you could imagine. Their unisex design makes it that much better.

The Aesthetically Pleasing Puzzle

Piecework Forbidden Fruit Puzzle – $36

Whether you’re a Millenial or not, these puzzles from Piecework are freakin cute.

The Perfume/Cologne

Mondo Mondo Center Of The World Perfume – $170

I’m a firm believer in scent not being gendered, but I understand not all women want to smell like musk and tobacco. This LV Men’s “sampler” kit will likely have at least one scent you and/or your SO love, and this Mondo Mondo perfume is raved about all over, also the name is cute.
