The best deals on Valentine’s Day gifts at a glance:
With Valentine’s Day just a little over a week away, it’s time to start thinking about gifts. A box of chocolates or some store-bought flowers are fine, but you can do better. This year, opt for something sweet, spicy, or maybe even practical. Better yet, opt for something on sale.
We’ve done some of the work for you and rounded up a dozen different products on sale that would make great Valentine’s Day gifts. There’s something for just about everyone on this list, from the tech-obsessed to the sentimental softie.
This Echo Dot bundle serves as a simple first step into transforming a home into a smart home. The 5th generation model with the clock feature is a great addition to a bedside table, shelf, or home office. It has a useful LED display, boasts vibrant sound, and motion and temperature sensors that can trigger smart home behaviors. Paired with the free Sengled color smart bulb, it makes setting the mood right for date night even easier. At $39.99, you’ll save 50% on the bundle — that’s just $5 shy of its lowest price to date.
For the self-care junkies, the Theraface Pro combines multiple skincare devices into one compact device for the “ultimate it-girl skincare tool.” It earned a Mashable Choice badge of honor and a nearly perfect rating from deputy reviews editor Miller Kern, with the price being one of the only downfalls. The Theraface LED model narrows down the most popular capabilities of the Theraface Pro — percussive massage and LED Light therapy — which also knocks down the price tag quite a bit. Even better: it’s on sale for just $198 — a savings of 34%.
We’re Not Really Strangers is a card game that encourages deeper connections. Whether you’re getting to know someone new or you’ve been together for years, the game helps you reach a new level of depth and self-realization. One reviewer called it “emotional foreplay.” It’s on sale for just $20 at the We’re Not Really Strangers website — that’s a 20% discount.
A smartwatch like the Fitbit Sense 2 serves as a fitness tracker, a means of staying in touch with loved ones throughout the day, and a way to manage stress, sleep better, and live healthier. And that’s a gift anyone can appreciate. Save $100 and pick one up at Amazon for only $199.95 for Valentine’s Day.
That perfect blowout look can be achieved at home with the Shark SmoothStyle, which also happens to be on sale for just $79.99. With three preset air temperatures to take hair from wet to dry, plus a heated smoothing setting and ceramic-coated plates, the SmoothStyle makes date night hair achievable in just a few swipes while avoiding damage. Snag it for your long-haired lady and save 20%.
Looking for a sexy gift you and your lover can enjoy again and again? Try on the Lovehoney Wilder Weekend kit on for size. It includes all kinds of toys for adventurous bedroom fun: vibrators, plugs, rings, and more. The 10-piece set is typically $129.99, but you can save 50% ahead of Valentine’s Day and snag it for only $64.99.
A good pair of noise-cancelling headphones can go a long way — from boosting focus and mindfulness during the day to eliminating annoyances on planes and commutes. Our favorite earbud option, the Beats Studio Buds+, are on sale for just $129.99 — that’s about $40 in savings and a couple cents away from their all-time low price.
Practical and fun? Check and check. The JBL Flip 6 portable speaker can get the party started anywhere, thanks to its bumping sound and its lightweight, portable design. It’s a great companion for just about any adventure and it’s on sale for just under $100.
Real flowers are fine and all, but a bouquet that never dies has much more longevity. Plus, you can build these Lego flowers together for an enjoyable date night. The flower bouquet kit is on sale for just $47.99 — that’s 20% in savings.
Turn your bedroom or backyard into a personal movie theater with a mini projector for the ultimate Valentine’s Day date night.

It’s powered by Android, so you can download your favorite apps and stream shows without even needing your phone. It’s usually $349.99, but you can snag it on sale ahead of Valentine’s Day for only $299.99.
