Valentine’s Day is fast-approaching so I’ve curated my top gift ideas for him and her that are all hand-made with love on Etsy.
Even if you’re not into all the mushy Valentine’s Day hoo-ha, I’m pretty sure you’ll find something special on the list (perhaps even a little gift for yourself)… and let’s face it, who doesn’t love an excuse to shop?!

All I ever want for Valentine’s Day is a beautiful card — sure, I’ll take the flowers too, but a card is my favourite gift of all.
And there are some incredible designs that take cards to a whole new level like this geometric heart wood card by Cardtorial.
Or perhaps for something a little more cheesy (pun totally intended) you might like this ‘Will you brie mine?’ card.
There are literally thousands of designs to choose from and you can see all the Valentine’s Day cards on Etsy here.
If you have something special to say, why not say it with soap? Vice and Velvet make gorgeous soap sets with sweet messages on the box like ‘You are loved’, ‘Hello gorgeous’ and ‘You da man’.
Bath salts are always popular and the range by Scarlet Bar Designs are gorgeous with additions like lavender, rose petals, camomile buds and cornflower petals. They also do bath milks, soaps and gift boxes.
Or my favourite right now are bath soaks and the beautiful products from Mimosa Botanicals look just divine.
Because a girl (or guy) can never have too many candles! 100% soy wax and natural fragrances are a must though — life’s too short for nasty candles. It’s impossible for me to pick a favourite candle brand but some of my top picks are…
XOX With Love — rose gold always gets my attention and I love that you can personalise this one to make it truly special.
Coco and Marley Collection — made from soy and coconut wax (making them vegan friendly) my favourite thing is that 10% of profits from each candle go towards supporting WWF Australia.
LJC Candle Co — nothing screams Valentine’s Day like champagne and strawberries, right? There are so many divine scents from LJC Candle Co, but this one has got us all loved up!
Homewares and decor
Some people find it cheesy but I like a few personalised pieces around the home that tell a story about the people who live there.
Grill kit from Teals Prairie
For a Valentine’s Day gift that’s a little less obvious, perhaps wall art is an idea to explore.
You could opt for something meaningful to your relationship like an anniversary print or these custom designed prints by Esina Designs.
Pepper Penny Prints also does sweet foil designs.
Or for a non-traditional idea, macrame wall hangings like this frayed edge design on drift wood say ‘I love you’ with the hours of time and attention taken to create. Available in a range of sizes, every piece is unique and prices range from $8.95 to over $600.
