Questions You Might Ask

What are the most popular Valentine's Day gifts for women?

When in doubt, Isom Johnson always opts for something personalized. “Nothing says ‘I love you’ quite like a one-of-a-kind gift that’s tailor-made,” she says. But if customization isn’t your style, Isom Johnson has seen quite the uptick in shoppers looking for paper flowers (a long-lasting alternative to the real kind) and handmade items like ceramics.

How much should you spend on a Valentine’s Day gift for her?

There’s no right or wrong amount to spend on a Valentine’s Day gift. Isom Johnson’s favorite part about the day is that there are so many opportunities to find something special without splurging unnecessarily. (We’ve also got suggestions for free gift ideas.) “What matters most is the thought that was put into discovering or creating just the right gift for the person you care about,” she says.

What are the most romantic gift ideas?

Romance doesn’t have to be all about rose petals and soft music. For Isom Johnson, romantic gifts succeed when they make the recipient feel seen. “I think the most romantic gift is one that perfectly speaks to the giftee,” she says. For example, if you know she always starts her day with a cup of tea, consider getting her a matching teapot and mug set or a sampler pack of tea leaves
