Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and you might be left scrambling trying to find that perfect gift for your significant other. This is a predicament all of us are much too familiar with and all of us are also equally guilty of sometimes coming home with presents that are of little use to our partner. What we often miss on this wonderful occasion is an opportunity to get our loved ones something they would actually appreciate. We are here to tell you to skip the usual suspects this time around and opt for something that will complete the abode you share together or be a more permanent reminder of your love for them. We have rounded up our picks from our veritable catalog of classics for Valentine’s Day 2022.
Got to Love the Loveseat
How can you go wrong with a name this romantic? This quintessential piece of furniture for the modern living room truly puts the fun in function. The compact design of a loveseat not only makes it ideal for our urban small space living rooms, but the very design is also an invitation to snuggle up with your partner. The duality of its style is what makes it an all the more desirable addition to your den or even your bedroom.
While a loveseat is typically designed to hold two, we highly recommend investing in a spacious one that you both can comfortably lounge around since you don’t want a particularly tight fit. A larger loveseat means you can sprawl out and catch up on your favorite TV show together on the days when your loved one is away.
There is an immense variety available with a loveseat. Of course, the upholstery options available as a Valentine's Day Gift are simply endless, but in keeping with these themes, we suggest going with more sumptuous staples like velvet or chenille to really dial up the cozy factor.
Wake Up On the Right Side of the Bed
As far as big gestures go, the gift of a new bed might be pretty hard to beat. All things said and done, what can be better than giving your beloved a good night’s sleep? Beds are often ignored pieces of furniture in modern homes, and perhaps what requires the most attention. Having a sanctuary to resign to is of utmost importance, especially in the troubling times we live in. So consider replacing your tired old bed with one that is as chic as it is comfortable.
While we highly recommend going as big as possible with your big gesture, ensure your bedroom can handle this massive change. Make sure your bedroom can accommodate a large bed especially if you are opting for one with a decorative headboard. While neutral colors have long been preferred when it comes to the bedroom, we would love to make a case for a bed in a fun pastel mint or even a lush decadent green paired with bedding in pale white or cream for a welcome change of pace.
Don’t forget mattresses and pillows when it comes to completing the ensemble. These seemingly simple additions can make a world of difference when it comes to creating a relaxing space where you can actually catch those elusive forty winks. In fact, if you’re up for it, a complete bedroom revamp with all the fixings is sure to floor the loved one.
Take Care of the Tipples
If your significant other is someone who enjoys a leisurely drink by the pool or a cozy wine night on a cold evening, consider bringing home the happy hours. Imagine how much your partner would appreciate the opportunity to sip their favorite tipples and enjoy a genial conversation on their very own bar table. Take it up a notch and complete the jovial mood with some high-back barstools.
Is your partner a mixologist in the making? Nurture their bartending dreams with a bar cart they can wheel out to your patio or your living room and showcase their skills before your guests. For the connoisseur of all things red and white, we promise they will drink up the elegance of a vintage wooden wine cabinet.
In case you already have a home bar, you can always gift them a quirky little curio or accessory that will complete the setup or prompt a chuckle at the same time.
For the Light of Your Life
A Valentine's Day gift is all about reminding them of your love and sometimes this is a job best left to trusted favorites. We all know there’s nothing quite like a scented candle to set the mood on this hallowed day of romance. We are however taking a U-turn on this romance staple and suggesting purchasing a candle that can double up as a decor piece.
Candles also make an excellent Galentine’s Day self-care piece for your gal pals. You can always also go the route less traveled and surprise them with a stunning crystal candle or tealight holder. For those of you who prefer a more lasting reminder of your love, consider an elegant lantern that can light up the indoors or outdoors.

For the Love of All Things Green
If your significant other has a bit of a green thumb, Valentine’s Day serves as the perfect occasion for you to appreciate all the positive verdant vibes they’ve ushered in with their green projects. Gift them a stunning set of planters and bring their leafy friends indoors to brighten up sorry corners or set up a pair of side tables where they can display their carefully nurtured terrariums.
You don’t have to go all out green for the Valentine's day gift, of course. You could always surprise them with a classy vase dotted with a DIY bouquet of dry local foliage instead of the overdone long-stemmed red roses. Willing to go the extra mile? Surprise them with all new patio furniture where they can sit back and really soak in the greenery.
If you’re looking for something more personal that will make their little green patch very much their own, look no further than the extensive collection of offbeat and classic gardening knick-knacks they can add to their little slice of heaven.
Selecting a Valentine’s Day gift can start to look like an unwelcome annual specter, it is however wise to look at it as a chance to give your loved ones an extra dose of attention, something of a welcome break from our busy schedules and endless chores. While we hope our roundup of unusual yet perfect gifts for your loved ones made the task a little easier on you, your loved ones will appreciate nothing more than the care and love you put into picking out something for them. CasaOne’s complete collection has something for anyone who wants to bring home a little love.
