Lesbian Couple Valentine’s Day Gift Guide

I did this for Sarah two years ago. I lined the floor in roses with 5 different cards leading up to the bed. Each card was a different reason why I loved her and explaining it. The balloons have photos taped to them with the memories on the back. I had hundreds of candles and rose petals. I killed it, honestly.

Some people love Valentine’s Day, some people hate Valentine’s Day. Any time I get to spoil Sarah a little bit extra, go on a special date and love on her a little more – I am all about it.

I’m fortunate to be in a relationship that feels like Valentine’s Day every single day. So cheesy but it’s true. We’re lame and lovey AF and I love every second of it.

This gift guide is for my queer lady lovin’ honeys who wanna spoil their partners! I hope you have the most fun day and love each other even louder and prouder than you do any other day.

  1. Hers/Hers/Dog Key Holder

I am obsessed with this. I actually got it for my best friends who are dating for Christmas and they loved it. Whether you live with your girlfriend or live alone and your girlfriend comes to visit, this is the perfect gift! It’s so cute AND it’s customizable!

2. Tiny Home Getaway

This is what we’re doing for Valentine’s Day this year and we can’t freaking wait. Sarah and I and our best friends are going away to New Hampshire to escape from the world with our dogs. These tiny homes come with either one bed or two and have huge windows that overlook the forest you’re in. They’re all wood, so cozy and so fun. Creep on their Instagram, fall in love and book yours.

I have to say, gifts like there where you get to go and create memories are our favorite. They’re so reasonably priced and always so fun. Getting away from the world and reconnecting with your partner is the best.

3. Jar with 365 Reasons Why I Love You

This is a great gift if you’re a baller on budget, if you’re long distance and honestly just in general. I took two mason jars, left one empty and then wrote our 365 reasons why I loved Sarah and shoved them into one.

Every day, she’d pull one and read it and put it in the empty jar. I gave her this when we were long distance and it made Sarah feel closer to me every day when she got to read something that was directly from me. She still has the jar full of all of the reasons and says it’s one of her favorite gifts I have ever given her!

4. Queer Personalized Cards

I love these cards made by Brandy Mars Designs. She has tons of different female/female cards with all sorts of cute graphics and sayings! They’d be so cute to use as an actual card OR to even frame and put in your home!

5. Rainbow Beach Towel

I’m obsessed with this towel! If you’re a couple that likes to travel like Sarah and I or you spend your summers at the beach, this is a perfect gift to surprise your partner with.

FemFetti also has tons and tons of super cute pride options! They have shirts, tank tops and other things for any queer person!

6. Personalized Jewelry

I LOVE personalized jewelry. For my birthday one year, Sarah’s sister got me a barred necklace with mine and Sarah’s initials on it and it was the perfect little piece of jewelry to always keep Sarah with me.

This specific Etsy shop makes all sorts of different kinds of jewelry and you can customize them however you’d like! I love the idea of the coordinates of where you first met, your initials, the date you first started dating. There are so many options to make it so unique to you and your relationships!

7. Hers & Hers Wine Glasses

If you’re a wine-o like Sarah and I then these are perfect for you and your partner! I loooove cheesy gifts like this. If you’re not super into wine and lock beer better, this specific Etsy shop makes beer mugs! Cheers 🙂

8. Personalized Pillow

I am obsessed with this and honestly will probably get it for Sarah (don’t worry, she doesn’t read this haha). I love how cute and simple it is! It’s a great throw pillow or a great little gift if you’re long distance and need something to squeeze when you and your partner are apart.

9. Cartoon Couple Portrait

I am downright obsessed with this. If you can’t tell, personalized gifts are my freaking favorite. Especially when they are so specific to your family. I love that this can be so specific to you, your partner, your hobbies and your family (furry friends included). This is the perfect gift to put in a special frame and surprise your partner with!

10. The L Word Complete Series

This is a classic. Sarah and I watch The L Word still daily and enjoy it just as much as we did when we first saw it. We have an entire L Word drinking game (let me know if you’d like me to post, you’re guaranteed to black out) and it’s the most fun. We constantly live in fear that it’ll be taken off of Netflix so buying this honestly sounds like a smart move.

Comment down below and tell me your favorite Valentine’s Day gift you’ve ever received! I love hearing how creative people get and all of the love ya’ll share. I hope you have the most fun and can’t wait to read all about it:)

    I’ve been following you since you two were long distance. You 100% made me feel more comfortable in my own skin. It truly makes my heart happy to see how far you’ve come in life and the endless possibilities that lie ahead of you two in the future. Keep being you and keep inspiring the community!

    “open when” letters written out in a decorated envelope are such a cute idea, especially for when you’re in a LDR and your girlfriend just needs something more tangible than a phone call or a text. you can do a bunch for when she’s mad, had a bad day, misses you, wants to laugh, needs reassurance, and so many more!

      I love this idea! Sarah did this for me when we were long distance and it made our time apart so much easier!

    Lovely recommendations!
    You two should have a YouTube channel. Or maybe you already have one and I’m not aware of it!
    I started following you guys a couple of mouths ago, and I’m in love with your relationship (and your wedding dresses haha)
    Best of wishes and lots of love from Argentina.
