Finding a unique Valentine’s Day gift in a sea of pink, heart-shaped plastic can be daunting. Not that there’s anything wrong with hearts or the color pink themselves (you’ll find some hearts and a lot of pink in this list) but we prefer Valentine’s Day gifts that are both romantic and useful, interesting, or fun. The decor and home goods picks below deliver on both fronts. Plus, when you’re shopping for someone you live with, gifts for the home are gifts that you get to enjoy, too.

Without further ado, here are 15 of our favorite home gifts that are romantic enough for Valentine’s Day, but won’t end up in the garbage by February 16.

Updated: With Valentine’s Day less than a week away, this is your last call to pick up something cool for your favorite person. It’s a great time for Amazon Prime members to take advantage of that free two-day shipping. All of the Amazon items in the list below are Prime eligible, and you can also take a look at Amazon’s Valentine’s Day Gift Guide for more last minute gift ideas.

A brass bar tool


This vintage-inspired 4-in-one tool acts as a jigger, bottle opener, corkscrew and ice hammer. It’s a perfect addition to your bar cart, assuming you’re the type of household with a bar cart.

Buy it here: Izola ($36)

A big cozy blanket


Snuggle up for the night and get those hygge vibes going in a patterned faux-fur throw that looks great draped over a couch. Normally $79.99, it’s on sale just in time for V-Day.

Buy it here: H&M ($34.99)

A potpourri pillow


This pillow smells as cool and rustic as it looks: It’s filled with Balsam fir needles that give off a crisp, woodsy scent.

Rose gold slate coasters

Amazon/Rene Redesigns

These hand-painted slate coasters from Amazon’s Handmade marketplace are a sweet addition to your coffee table. Pick up a matching serving tray if you’re planning on breaking out a romantic wine-and-cheese spread.

Buy them here: Amazon ($32)

A pink salt lamp


A pink salt lamp is both on-theme for Valentine’s Day and very trendy right now. Whether or not you’re in it for the alleged health benefits, it a cool accent piece either way.

Buy it here: Amazon ($21.99)

Pink salt tequila glasses


If you prefer your salt with tequila, these FDA-approved shot glasses essentially come pre-salted — because they’re made of pink salt. The four glasses come with the serving board pictured (tequila sold separately.)

Buy them here: Amazon ($35)

A frame for your Instagrams


Online custom framing company Framebridge lets you upload a digital file that they’ll then print and mount for you. The “Heartstagram” frame is on sale for Valentine’s Day —it’s normally $39 each, but you can get four for $100 with code HEARTYOU.

Buy it here: Framebridge ($39 or $100 for 4)

A heart-shaped mirror

Urban Outfitters

An adorable paperweight

A cool wall clock


A wall clock might not seem like a super romantic gift, but if this modernist black and gold one from Target’s Project 62 matches your partner’s design style, you’ll get major points for finding a perfect piece to tie the room together.

A constellation print


Etsy has a ton of cool personalized gifts, but this print depicting what was happening in the stars on a meaningful date in your relationship is definitely the most romantic.
