Word of advice: Anytime you’re shopping for your significant other, it’s best not to go down the practical route. As nice as a new set of cookware might be, that kind of functional gift is probably better suited for your dad, your mom, your brother—literally anyone other than your S.O. A romantic gift, on the other hand, feels extra thoughtful and special because it can only come from you.
Since romantic can turn cheesy, like, real fast, we’ve rounded up some non-sappy gift ideas your loved one will definitely appreciate (but we did include a heart-shaped gift or two! We can’t help ourselves!). Take a scroll through this gallery, and you’ll find plenty of self-care gifts (like bubble bath soaps, lip masks, and fragrances), as well as sentimental gifts to highlight your relationship and the time spent together (like photo displays and fun games for couples to play).
So if you’re shopping for your wife or girlfriend, save the cooking pan for someone else and try one of these 45 romantic gifts for her instead. (And, of course, these sweet gifts aren’t reserved for just women—we’re sure that whoever’s on the receiving end of these presents will love them almost as much as they love you. Cue a round of awww‘s!)

this gold band
Women’s Ripple Band Ring, Gold

A luxurious floor-length robe made of silk and satin blend with French lace details will make your S.O. feel like the queen she is.

these rose-shaped soaps
Floral Scented Bath Soap Rose Flower Petals, Pink, 12 Count
Sure, you could sprinkle real rose petals over a bath, or you could use these petals made of vanilla-scented soap instead. Makes much more sense (scents?) that way.
this pack of panties
Women’s Say Never Cutie Low Rise Thong 3 Pack
Lingerie for a romantic gift is too obvious of a choice (and let’s be honest, overrated). Get them what they really want: a pack of nice quality underwear in fun colors and prints that they’ll actually wear every day.

Women’s Curvy CLF Jersey Cami, Black Caviar
A jersey cami with a little lace detailing is super sultry but still practical enough for everyday pajamas.

a bottle of bubble bath
Breathe Tranquil Bubble Bath
The gift of self-care is the best gift any time of the year. And since baths are best enjoyed with a glass of vino, pair this relaxing bubble bath that looks like a bottle of wine with a real bottle of bubbly, and you’ve got yourself a winning combo.

Serve their favorite brunch foods on this tray to get major points—they can even use it later as a laptop tray when they’re not getting breakfast in bed.
these hinged bud vases
Set of 3 Test Tube Vase with Black Iron Frame Stand
An expensive flower arrangement is super nice, but c’mon—what’s more romantic than handpicked flowers from the garden? These hinged bud vases are perfect for little flower blooms, cuttings for propagation, and more.
these cozy sheets
Classic Core Sheet Set
Nice bedsheets aren’t cheap, but they’re totally worth it. Anyone would appreciate the gift of luxe bedsheets, but if you’re giving them to your S.O., you get to enjoy them, too.

Give the gift of travel inspo for your love with this sleek hard-shell suitcase.

this shimmery body oil and lipstick set
Soleil Blanc Body Oil & Lip Set
I can’t decide which is more romantic: a fancy designer lipstick or a fancy designer shimmery body oil. Good thing with this gift set you don’t have to choose between the two.

Anything silk is romantic, which is why this eye mask makes such a good gift idea.

these spa towels
Word to the wise: Anything with the word “spa” in the name makes a great gift idea. Take these plush spa towels, for instance.
this seductive body wash
Seductive Sandalwood Body Wash
Romance and roses go together like nothing else, but if your partner isn’t a rose person, sandalwood is another sensual scent they’ll probably (definitely) like. This sandalwood-scented body wash is called “seductive” for a reason.
this photo display box
Brass & Wood Display Box
If you two have taken so many photos together over the years that you couldn’t possibly find a photo album big enough, get this wooden photo display box to hold them all.

this trio of bath salts
Bath Salt Spa Gift Set Collection
And if bubble baths aren’t their thing, a set of three different bath salts might be. The only thing they should be stressing over is deciding between Himalayan pink salt, French green clay, and Hiwa Kai black lava salt.
Metal Loop Candelabra
Hear me out. Cooking your lover a meal at home is very romantic, but nothing amps up the heat like a gold candelabra centerpiece and you know I’m right about that. This one will look perfect with your carefully planned tablescape.

Baies/Berries Scented Oval
If you’ve maxed out on candle gifts, try a scented wax perfume diffuser instead. This oval is perfect for tucking away in dresser drawers or hanging in closets and leaves a light scent of romantic Bulgarian rose on clothing, linens, or whatever you want.
a champagne saber
There’s a reason all the romance movie scenes start with someone opening a bottle of champagne with a saber. It’s freaking awesome. Give this for a gift so you can try it for yourself and see if it’s as cool in person.
