The Ultimate 2023 Valentine’s Day Gift Guide

The Ultimate 2023 Valentine’s Day Gift Guide

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner—and while some may find it to be an overrated and overmarketed holiday, our Italian hearts can’t help but find the romance in a day dedicated specifically to love. This is why we’re here to help you ditch the same boring routine of roses and cheap chocolates and surprise your special valentine with something that will make their heart (and their stomachs) full.

Here are 5 Valentine’s Day gift ideas to surprise your significant other with.

#1 - Something nostalgic

Go old school this Valentine’s Day, and pass out your favorite Valentine’s Day cards just like when you were in grade school. Grab a box of cards with your favorite cartoon character, cute sayings, or something worth chuckling at, and fill them with cute handwritten messages. Then, put the cards in various spots for your loved one to find throughout the day—like next to their toothbrush, hanging on the fridge, or perched on their steering wheel—reminding them throughout the day how much they mean to you.

#2 - Something Sentimental

When it comes to gifting, it’s the thought that counts. And hardly anything is more thoughtful than a beautiful DIY project or customized gift that showcases your love for someone. Create a beautiful collage or picture book documenting your relationship, write a long handwritten love letter, have their ring engraved with your anniversary date, or surprise them with something that reminds them of a special trip you took together, like carefully-curated Italian food gift boxes that will bring back memories of your romantic trip to the Tuscan countryside.    

#3 - Something Shiny

If you’re ready to splurge on your Valentine this year, you might consider gifting jewelry. And remember, just because it’s a day full of hearts doesn’t mean you have to stick to heart-shaped jewelry. Opt for something classic that can be worn every day, like diamond studs or a pendant necklace, or showcase your special someone’s personality with a bold statement piece they can pull out for those special occasions. 

#4 - Something to Do

Sometimes the best gift is time. If you and your partner live busy lifestyles, use Valentine’s Day as an excuse to carve out quality time for one another. Plan a night out for two, complete with dinner, activities, and a late-night scoop of gelato. Or, skip the crowded restaurants and long wait lists and make a gourmet meal at home with some of the best food gifts for Valentine's Day. You can bring a taste of Italy, one of the most romantic countries in the world, right to your kitchen with a beautifully curated pasta kit, famous truffle products, or a selection of fine chocolates and Italian sweets.   

#5 - Something Tasty

In Italy, it is believed that the way to someone’s heart is through their stomach—so give your special someone a taste of your love with high-end Italian food gift boxes. These Italy-inspired Valentine’s Day gifts bring together some of the best, most exclusive artisanal ingredients from various regions in Italy. Upgrade your V-day chocolates with gourmet chocolate gift sets straight from Milan, or give your savory lover something to savor with a collection of Tuscany favorites or pasta sauces inspired by generations of authentic Italian cooking.
