Hard as it may be to imagine, Valentine’s Day is a little under a month away, so now’s probably a good time to start searching for the perfect gift – because no one wants to frantically run to the grocery store for last minute chocolate and flowers. Whether you’re shopping for a significant other, best friend, pet, or just want to treat yourself, the Design Milk team knows a thing or two about finding the best modern and unique Valentine’s Day gifts. Read on to see what we’ll be gifting and (hopefully) getting this V-day.

The Arc Earring by Emily's

The Arc Earring by Emily's

“I would gift these earrings to just about anyone! I wear these several times a week, and you can really customize your look with the different pairs (they also come in a set!). They are super simple, but elevate any look. I loved supporting this artist as well. Great quality earrings.”
— Abbi, Marketing Intern

Some Like it Hot Puzzle by Piecework Puzzles

Some Like it Hot Puzzle by Piecework Puzzles

“Now that we’ve been spending more time indoors, my fiancé and I have gotten into having puzzle nights at home. It’s a great way to ditch our screens, spend quality time, and work our brains in the process! I love the maximalist look of Piecework Puzzles, and Some Like It Hot is a cute and clever gift that’ll make for a fun V-day activity. Pair it with a bottle of wine and a playlist, and you’ve got everything you need for a cozy night in!”

Ribbed Tumbler by Cloud 9 Clay

“I’ve been obsessed with these rainbow tumblers since they landed in our shop. I love the ribbing and gradient colors – the cup is just bound to make you happy when drinking tea throughout the day or keeping it on your desk to hold all your pens and pencils.”
— Caroline, Editorial Director

Color Block Red + Pink Collar by Rag & Paw

“This year my valentine happens to be my pup, Bebe! As if she’s not spoiled enough, I plan on picking up this color blocked pink and red collar in my favorite color combo from Rag & Paw. There’s even an option to personalize it with her name that I’ll definitely be taking advantage of. She’s my heart!”
— Kelly, Senior Editor

Wick Portable LED Candlelight by Graypants inc.

Wick Portable LED Candlelight by Graypants inc.

“My husband and I love to cook and try new recipes from all over the world. Nothing beats a date night in the kitchen, making something new together. Serve it up with a candlelit tablescape and it puts the cherry on top. This LED candlelight is the perfect way to set the ambiance, makes a great gift, and can be used for so many other purposes in the future.”
— Lauren, Digital Designer

No Time Wasted Watch by Projects Watches

No Time Wasted Watch by Projects Watches

“What is more classic than getting your partner a watch for Valentine’s Day? Maybe chocolates and flowers but that’s another story. As soon as I saw Projects Watches, I was hooked! Their modern and unique designs are simple, but just enough to make you stand out.”
— Lilit, Social Media Manager

Chunky Woven Blanket by AAPETPEOPLE

Chunky Woven Blanket by AAPETPEOPLE

“A statement piece that you can snuggle with or without your Valentine? I’m in! I’ve been on the hunt for a chunky blanket since I first saw one and this one checks all the boxes. It’s gorgeous, washable, and made with 100% cotton vegan yarn. So, no pilling or shrinking, and it’s biodegradable and recyclable.”
— Dixie, Director of Strategic Partnerships
