The best Valentine’s Day gifts for boyfriend are the ones that come from the heart. But finding a cute, romantic gift isn’t always easy – especially if your boyfriend already has everything he wants or needs. These 26 ideas will melt his heart and make your Valentine’s Day special.
26 Cute Romantic Valentine’s Day Gifts for Boyfriend
1. DIY Pop-Up Photo Box
Creating a DIY pop-up photo box is a great way to show off those memories and remember all the great moments you’ve shared so far.
The DIY Village has a great tutorial on how to make this gift.
2. A Year of Dates in a Box
Here’s a gift that keeps on giving. Make up a plan for one fun date night a month and create a fun box full of those ideas.
Don’t just list them on paper. Add items that go with the date. For example, if you’re planning a game night, wrap up a snack, a score card and a prize for the winner.
The Babes Ruth has some awesome ideas for this gift if you need some inspiration.
3. 5 Senses Gift
This classic Valentine’s Day gift never goes out of style. The idea is to give him five gifts – one for each sense:
- Sight: Sunglasses, an LED lamp or movie tickets
- Smell: Cologne, his favorite coffee or incense sticks
- Sound: Concert tickets, earbuds or an audiobook
- Taste: Edible massage oil, chocolate, or a snack he loves
- Touch: A soft blanket, silk boxers or a massage
Wrap your gifts and present them in a romantic way.
4. A Jar of Love
Here’s a really sweet Valentine’s Day gifts for boyfriend. Get four different colored memo note pads (3” x 3”), create four different categories of things related to your relationship, and write down things that relate to each category.
- Blue would be “remember when,” and you’ll write down memories
- Pink would be “reasons why I love you,” and you’ll write down those reasons
- Yellow would be “quotes or lyrics” that remind you of him
- Teal would be “have to do this!” with fun date or bucket list ideas
Fold up each piece of paper and add them all to a mason jar with a label that tells him what each color paper means.
5. Date Night in a Jar
Instead of making a box of pre-planned dates, write down date ideas on popsicle sticks, mix them up and put them in a mason jar. Give the jar as a gift to him on Valentine’s Day. Whenever you have your date nights, you can pick an idea from the jar.
6. ‘Open When’ Gifts
If you’re far apart on Valentine’s Day, send him a box of “open when” gifts. You can make the “open when” moments whatever you want.
- Open when you’re feeling down
- Open when it’s Valentine’s Day
- Open when you’re in a silly mood
Get creative both with your moments and what you put inside each envelope. Involvery has some great ideas on what to put in your envelopes, but make sure your gifts are personal to your boyfriend.
7. A Watch
A watch like this one from Amazon is a cute Valentine’s Day gift idea, but you can make it even more special by adding a little message, like “It’s time to tell you I love you.” Be cute and cheesy with your message and present his present in a nice gift box.
8. Custom Song Plaque Night Light
Do you guys have a song? Gift him a custom plaque night light with a scannable Spotify code picture. You can even add your own photo to the plaque to make it really personalized.
He can listen to your song whenever he wants, and he can use his new plaque as a lamp.
9. A Custom Video Print
Places like Infinite Objects have created video prints, which are basically digital photo frames that play a video. Just upload your video, and they’ll print and frame the video and send it to your doorstep.
10. DIY Exploding Box
It’s easier than you think to make your own exploding box. Glitter Adventure has a great tutorial on how to make this gift. Along with your favorite photos, you’ll need some craft paper and a few other basic office supplies.
11. What I Love About You A-Z
We love sweet Valentine’s Day gifts for boyfriend like this one. It’s simple to make, but super thoughtful and romantic.
Go through the alphabet – from A to Z – and write down something you love about him for each letter. Use a hole puncher to punch a hole in the corner of each piece of paper and put them all onto a keychain ring.
12. Naughty Coupons
Adults will love these naughty coupons. You can make them out of pieces of paper, or you can buy the coupons online. You’ll then give him the coupons that he can “cash in” for whatever you write on the coupon.
13. Tacklebox of Goodies
Are you “hooked on him?” Buy a tacklebox but instead of filling it with hooks, put a bunch of candy in it. You can even find “fish-shaped” candies to add.
14. Remember When Box

Your story is just beginning, but why not put it together for him? You’ll need a wooden box and can add pictures you took together, favorite candies, movie tickets and anything else to make him think of your special memories together.
17. Sneakers with a Twist
Does he love shoes as much as you do? You can buy him a pair of sneakers or shoes, and then on the box, write something sweet like in the Pin above. The saying “So lucky you walked into my life” will be enough to make him melt the moment he sees it.
18. Balloon, Pop, Surprise!
You only need balloons and tiny gifts that you can place in them. Put small candies or other gifts that you can fit in them, blow them up and then ask him to pop them with a tack. It’s a fun, cute way to give a gift this Valentine’s Day.
19. Bag Filled With Favorites

20. I Wish I Could Turn Back Time
Just look at this Pin – it’s adorable. You can recreate it or simply buy one online. The real “gift” is the saying and thoughtful words written on the paper in the box: “I wish I could turn back the clock. I’d find you sooner and love you longer.”
