2021 Valentine's Day Gift Guide

Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas & The Five Love Languages

Back in 1992, a book emerged, titled The Five Love Languages: How to Express Heartfelt Commitment to Your Mate. Even though this book is nearly 30 years old, many principles are still relevant today, and can not only be applied to romantic partners, but other relationships as well.

Valentine’s Day may continue to look different this year, but we’ve taken these “love languages” and applied them to all the people in your lives you’d like to express your love to. Most importantly, we’ve come up with some creative ideas to celebrate the holiday, and how you can do it safely.

Everyone expresses love differently, and according to this book, can be communicated in five different ways:

  • Words of Affirmation
  • Acts of Service
  • Receiving Gifts
  • Quality Time
  • Physical Touch

Below, we break down these “love languages” and how to show your affection to all the people you care about in your life.

Words Of Affirmation

His and Hers Custom bath Salts

Loved ones who appreciate Words of Affirmation value verbal and written forms of affection and encouragement. They also tend to be more active in engaging with others, and may be more social.

Gifts of Affirmation

Why not show your appreciation by sending an unexpected card or letter letting them know how much you care? With your card, add the Roses for Mom Gift Set, perfect to show your love to mom or other special mother-like figures in your life.

Additionally, hand-crafting a customized gifts, such as a Customized Facial Cocktail or Make Your Own Bath Salts will surely make anyone feel special and appreciated. You can customize the label with their name or a short phrase to really make the experience personal.

Special bearded fellow in your life? There’s a custom product for that too! Check out our Custom Beard Oil to add a personal touch to their daily grooming routine.

Acts Of Service

People who value Acts of Service enjoy when loved ones go out of their way to make things easier. This love language is for those who believe that actions speak louder than words. Unexpected acts are treasured.

Gifts of Service

Perhaps it is your co-worker that helps to get you through the daily grind. Pick up their favorite latte, offer to finish a work project for them, and pair it with our Love Essential Oil Roll On.

Or maybe your roommate or significant other has had a rough week. Go out of your way to run them a relaxing bath using aromatic salts from the Spa from Home Relaxation Tower. Allow them to escape into their very own home spa with a hydrating facial mask, essential oil-powered bath soak, and luxurious rose-scented Body Cream, are sure to melt stress away.

Receiving Gifts

One of the most straightforward love languages, Receiving Gifts goes more beyond monetary value. This love language focuses on the understanding of the gift-giving process, from the careful reflection, and benefits your intended will get from receiving the gift – it’s the thought that counts!

Gifts for the Love of Gifting

Do you have someone who you’d consider a lonely heart this holiday? Give them a socially distant pick-me-up by dropping off a favorite dessert on their doorstep along with our Love Potions No. 3. These roll-ons help to encourage self-love and confidence – just what they need to take the dive into the dating pool.

Luxury lover on your hands? Wow them with our SV23 Phyto Serum for the ultimate Source Vital Gift.

SV23 is for the person who loves to pamper themselves. Made with 23 of our most luxurious botanical oils, this face oil instantly brightens the complexion, improves the look of fine lines and wrinkles, hydrates, and diminishes redness and the look and feel or irritations.

Go one step further with the Sorry Mom for the Wrinkles Gift Set which includes a free Rose Quartz facial roller with the purchase of SV23 – it says it’s for mom but is still a great gift for any skin care junkie.

Quality Time

People whose love language is quality time feel the most adored when they are given undivided, uninterrupted attention.

Gifts of Quality Time

Bestie in your quarantine bubble? Make a playlist of their favorite songs, curl up with a glass of wine, and put on a face mask (like the skin care kind – not PPE) with your Make your Own Mask Kit or go for a multi-masking session with the Multi-Mask Tower. Another great idea is to have an uninterrupted zoom session, and mask virtually! The perfect way to celebrate "Galentine's" day!

If your significant other is looking for some quality time, the Bath Salts and Bath & Body Oil duo great to share a foot soak together – or get even closer with a romantic aromatherapy bath. Bonus points – leave your phones and devices in the other room.

Try Serene for a deeply relaxing bath, Renew for a spicy blend that works to promote a healthy detox feeling, or Stress Relief for those who have trouble breaking away from the grind of the day. 

Physical Touch

Those who enjoy physical touch seek out physical signs of affection, such as holding hands, hugging, and kissing. The warmth and comfort that comes with touch is especially gratifying.

Gifts of Physical Touch

Want to impress your partner? Our Love Me Trio is the perfect choice to create your romantic evening. Light the candle, mix a few drops of our Love Essential Oil Blend to our Massage Oil, and take turns treating each other to a relaxing massage.

Or diffuse your favorite romantic essential oils (rose is an excellent choice) put on a romantic movie and snuggle up together.

Maybe the physical touch is just showing yourself some self-care. We can all use a little extra love, more than ever in this time of social distancing.

Our collection of rose-scented body products are a great option. Opt for one of our Rose Quartz facial tools like the Rose Quartz Facial Roller & Qua Sha Duo, or one of our men’s gift sets that include everything needed for GQ-esq grooming.
