Shopping aisles are awash in red and pink, so you know it’s time to start working on your Valentine’s Day gifts. Whether you’re partnered or single, take this holiday as an opportunity to show some love to those you care about. And don’t forget: that includes you, too!
Sometimes, Valentine’s Day gift guides can be just a little too specific. This can be helpful, but it’s not always easy to find the exact fit for your person. So this year, we’ve decided to focus on broad categories instead. This makes it a lot easier to narrow things down and choose something your loved one will actually love.

Something floral… with a twist
If your Valentine loves flowers, of course, you could go the traditional route and get them a gorgeous bouquet. Unfortunately, flowers don’t last forever. So if you want to gift your favourite person something a little more permanent – not to mention special – give them the gift of a hands-on floral arrangement workshop.
This Valentine’s Day gift gets extra props for being interactive and very fun to do in person. But if you can’t find a local offering, all is not lost. Fortunately, there are plenty of virtual workshops through sites like Skillshare, Udemy, and even online professional certifications.
Need a special gift for the guy in your life? Let him know he’s worth it with a trip to the barbershop for a luxury grooming and self-care session. If he’s usually the type to go for a quick cut and shave, upgrade his experience with a few elevated extras. Don’t know where to start? The most popular speciality grooming services for men include a straight razor shave, hot towel massage, eyebrow trim, and beard or moustache shaping.

For the partner who is working on themselves, a gift that supports their physical or mental wellness can be just the boost they need. In this case, the best gift will fit into their life and what they already enjoy doing. Someone who likes exercising in a gym or with others might enjoy personal training sessions. If they prefer hands-on or outdoor activities, or if they’re working towards a goal, try a local running club or team sport. For those with an at-home routine, consider a subscription to a fitness app, trendy equipment like Bala weights, or high-quality workout gear. They’ll look and feel like a boss with every crunch, squat, and downward dog.
Celebrating love also means supporting your loved ones’ mental wellness. Apps such as Calm make a great gift and are designed to help you live a centred life, get more rest, and improve overall happiness. Looking for something more personalized? Get them a pass for a place they can go to recharge, like their favourite botanical garden or art museum.
Is your loved one stressed to the max? Are they the type of person who is always doing things for others but neglecting their own self-care? Let’s help you fix that.
One of our favourite Valentine’s Day gift ideas for the person who needs to slow down is a wellness or beauty retreat. Remind your Valentine to take some time just for themselves by booking them a combo service at their favourite salon or spa. It’s a great way to treat them to the services they enjoy most. They’ll have no choice but to let themselves actually relax. And hopefully, it will inspire them to treat themselves more often, too!

Maybe you don’t know your Valentine well enough yet to try any of the above ideas. Or maybe none of these sound right for that special someone in your life. In that case, why not keep it simple and get them a Booksy Gift Card for their favourite service?
You can use Booksy to book appointments with talented local professionals: barbers, hairstylists, nail artists, beauty specialists, massage therapists, and more. To purchase a Booksy gift card, first select the business of your choice by searching on our website or app. If the provider offers gift cards, you’ll see a Show Gift Cards button on their profile. From there, you can purchase a gift card directly from the business.
