Trust us, there’s something in here for you!
Splurge Like A California King
Forget about dressing to impress. Stay in your PJs all day and cozy up with your hunny on your brand new mattress from NECTAR! This is the ultimate gift to “wow” anyone, and you get to enjoy it too. Seriously, this is one of the most comfortable and affordable mattresses out there – you usually have to pick between one aspect or the other! Each mattress is layered with two Gel Memory Foams for body contouring and a special cooling cover to maintain that perfect body temperature all night long. This means more hours you can spend snuggled up to your loved one without having to turn on the noisy bedside fan.
NECTAR Sleep is the ultimate gift for the practical couple. New beginnings, new relationships, newlyweds, new homes – celebrate the day of love by giving the most comfortable mattress to your sweetheart. NECTAR creates a dream oasis, giving all couples a great night’s sleep. To top it off, NECTAR mattresses come at a remarkable value (a California King is only $900)!
One more reason why this is one of the best gifts for Valentine’s Day: the innovative packaging is vacuum sealed and rolled tightly, so you won’t be receiving a gigantic expanded mattress at your door! You can easily hide this Valentine’s Day 2018 gift until it’s time to give it. Surprise your babe while they’re at work, and let the mattress expand naturally in your bed frame for them to come home and see! NECTAR mattresses don’t need to be broken in, but you may just want to give it a test run on Valentine’s Day, if you know what I’m sayin’…
Simplicity is Key
Know any aspiring or real-life mermaids in your life? Or perhaps you need to treat-yo-self this time around on Valentine’s Day 2018? You can’t go wrong with the appropriately titled Ariel Knitted Mermaid Blanket from TOBI! It’s available in two colors: pink and multicolored. If you’re seeing snow on Valentine’s Day, this will be an extra treat, but the knitted material is breathable and comfortable enough to lounge on your living room sofa no matter the weather. Cozy up with someone special that’s “part of your world.”
Sure, you could spend $70 on a perfume that will be added to your hunny’s growing collection of scents, or you could gift Linger Fragrance Primer to make her perfume last longer. That means when your lady comes home from a long day of work, she’ll still have that enticing scent she left in the morning with. It’s sort of like a gift that keeps on giving to everyone! Check out the website, and see how many celebrities are swearing by this fragrance primer.
Valentine or Galentine, you cannot go wrong with a bangle or piece of bling to celebrate the special ladies in your life. Any old bracelet or necklace, however, does not have the meaning of a Made for Freedom piece. Each handcrafted accessory is made by a woman who is a survivor of human trafficking or who is at risk for becoming a victim. Made for Freedom gives these women the tools they need for a brighter future. Fight for a good cause and make someone special in your life feel like they are a part of the solution with this Valentine’s Day 2018 gift.
Stuck on ideas for your recent girlfriend or boyfriend? Keep things simple and sweet with Instablock. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, you can have any photo printed on a heart-shaped wooden block. It stands freely, so it makes a cute accent piece and catches more attention than your average photo frame. Instablock makes an equally great gift for your family members or friends!

If your lover has been in search of a healthy way to infuse flavor without the use of fats, salts, oils, or added calories, this stovetop smoker is the Valentine’s Day 2018 gift for them!
