Do you really want another dozen roses? That’s so unoriginal and let’s face it. Roses die. So I searched high and low, near and far to find some out-side-the (proverbial) box to come up with some unique Valentine’s Day gift ideas. Some are expected and some certainly are not. Here are over a dozen Valentine’s Day Gifts Women Over 40 Really Want to give and receive.
Sincerely Jewelry Create Your Own Signature Necklace, prices vary.
I love the idea of setting your own signature in jewelry. Or how about your child’s name? These necklaces can be customized in solid gold or combined with precious stones.

Primally Pure LIP BALM, $4 each
This natural lip balm is available in 5 delicious scents – all of which contain only a few nourishing ingredients that will give your lips a smooth and healthy feeling that lasts. Organic essential oils provide added benefits and flavors for your lips to enjoy. Ingredients like tallow from grass-fed cows, coconut oil and shea butter deeply moisturize and heal chapped lips. This balm is made from fair trade ingredients, too.
Society Socks, subscriptions starting at $51 for 3 months.
This monthly subscription sends the receiver two high-quality, stylish pairs of socks per month, and donates two to a charity in need. The sock designs are inspired by European, Asian, and North American cultures, and are made of 80% combed cotton, 15% polyester and 5% elastane. Right now they only carry men’s socks but women’s are coming soon.
This natural rollerball perfume smells like a vacation so you might as well pack it, or simply use it on a staycation and just pretend you are somewhere exotic. The intoxicating blend of florals (like rose otto), citrus and vanilla has a rollerball that is made from rose quartz which is also called the heart stone. It inspires awareness for the lover of yourself and others. Is there a better message than that for Valentine’s Day?
For just a $20 you can put a huge smile on someone’s face! This Belgian chocolate is hard to resist. It’s that good. This box is the sampler size of Get Happy’s best milk chocolates, starting with a fresh turtle, surrounded by sea salt cashews and stacked with eight classic caramels.
This Provence Lavender vegan candle is a soft floral with minty herbal notes and a refreshing woody undertone to create a calm and balanced fragrance. Lavender is a calming, relaxing and comforting scent also known for being fresh and clean. It’s essential oil based and has 75+ hours of burn time.
I realize this may seem like an odd Valentine’s Day gift, but why wouldn’t you want to protect the ones you love? Every day, millions of men and women travel by train, cab and by foot. SABRE offers Pepper Sprays/Pepper Gels, Personal Alarms, Door Handle Alarms, New* Multitasking Stun Guns and more. You can even order it in red just for the holiday.

This detoxoifying bath blend smells indescribably amazing! It’s a skin-softening blend of soothing botanicals that repair damaged/inflamed skin and balance pH levels. Epsom salt rids the body of toxins and soothes sore muscles. Baking soda has an alkalizing effect on the body and works alongside dehydrated coconut milk to leave the skin feeling silky and smooth. Organic essential oils of lavender and geranium relax the body and mind. Just don’t fall asleep.
