Tired of gifting chocolates and flowers for Valentine’s Day? Time to step up your game! We asked members of our retail staff at Goodwill's Retique store in Milwaukee's Historic Third Ward to pick six creative Valentine’s Day gifts for their special someone. Not only are we in love with their choices, but these gift ideas will work for any loved one on your list! Check them out below.
Does your s/o love the ocean or beach? This adorable pillow will surely melt any sea lover’s heart. When picking out gifts, stray away from the “typical” Valentine’s Day gifts and think of hobbies and interests that your partner enjoys. After all, thoughtful gifts are truly what matters! Goodwill team member Laura R. says, “this pillow is so funny and cute, even my toddler would love this!”
A cookbook is a fantastic gift idea for your sweet chef. It’s also a great way to introduce a date night activity at-home with your partner. Eli W. picked out The Flavor Matrix and said, “I chose this book because I love cooking with my partner, and this will be a great way to try new pairings together.”
Beer lovers will surely get a kick out these “bring me a beer” socks! Laura enjoyed picking these out and said, “My husband is a big craft beer guy and loves breweries so I know these socks will be perfect for him.
For a wine connoisseur, a wine tote is a must-have! This cozy faux fur wine holder is perfect for the cold winter season. It’s also a luxurious way to gift a bottle of wine. Eli noted, “This fur wine bag is soft and fun to hold wine in. It would be a good gift idea for my mom or my girlfriend.”
For some humor in your gift-giving, we love these quirky dish towels. Kim K. picked out both towels and stated, “These are a little sassy and, unlike clothing, dish towels always fit, and you can never have enough.”
