Best Valentine’s gifts for him on Etsy from real makers
These are the Valentine’s gifts for men that we know the men in our own lives would love, but they’re certainly not only for men. Feel free to gift them any way you’d like!
Homemade Red Velvet Valentine’s Whoopie Pies
If the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach (mine too if we’re going to be honest), these heart-shaped whoopie pies hold a lot of love. Handmade in Pennsylvania, they make a delicious Valentine’s gift for him from a real bakery.

Personalized photo leather key ring
One of our most popular gifts we’ve ever discovered, this handmade leather key chain includes a gold foil stamp of a name, or short message like this heart with both of your initials.Tuck a photo inside of you and your valentine.

Personalized Whiskey Glass Engraved with Your Own Handwriting
Buy him a fab bottle of whiskey (may we recommend Uncle Nearest?) or even the whiskey making kit (below) for an extra-special Valentine’s gift for him, but we bet he’d love the glass all on its own. Even If he’s drinking water, the engraved message is what matters.
DIY Whiskey Making Kit
Ideal Valentine’s gift for him, if he’s always on the search for the “perfect” whiskey; now he can make his own! Or…try.Find kits for making gin, tequila, and rum too.

We’ve been recommending Beehive Handmade going back 15 years! Their handmade pewter heart-shaped collection on Etsy is perfect for a Valentine’s gift for him if he bakes — or just loves his java.
(Their heart-shaped teaspoons featured here are pretty great too.)

“Good Morning, Handsome” Coffee Spoon Plus Morning Quickie Coffee Breakfast Blend
Let him know you still love waking up next to him with a positive affirmation to go with his coffee. I’d add in a bag of the cheeky “Morning Quickie” coffee from Rising Cock Coffee which gets fantastic reviews for taste and, as you might have guessed, humor.
(Spoon $19.99, Trend Benders Artistry; coffee $14.95, Rising Cock Coffee)

As with our Valentine’s Gifts for men, theses gifts are those we think women will adore, but they could be a hit with the right person of any gender. Provided you adore them!
Raw Diamond Lookalike Cuff
Skip the cheesy mass-produced tennis bracelets from the mall store, and indulge her with these stunning raw crystals set in recycled metals. Our editor Liz owns the hoops from this shop and has been wearing them with delight for two years now — incredible quality and craftsmanship we look for in a gift recommendation from an Etsy maker.
Vegan and Gluten-Free Valentines Truffles
Made by hand in Brooklyn, these gorgeous truffles are filled with sophisticated flavors like pistachio marzipan, vanilla bourbon, and Earl Grey tea. Whether she’s a vegan, gluten-free, or neither, it’s a fantastic Valentine’s gift for her. I mean, you can never go wrong with chocolate! Especially from a small business.

Organic bath salts
Give her this set of relaxing organic bath salts that come beautifully packaged from this Austin-based, mom-founded company. Then draw her a bath…then get out of house so she can chill. Or you know, enjoy them together. Whatever works for you.

Custom Embroidered Sweatshirt From Your Photo
Shoppers rave that this shop’s embroidered sweatshirts really do capture the essence of a special photo — in thread. I also love the personalized message stitched on the sleeve. You might even grab one for each of you in different colors. (sweatshirts $39.75+, Lusmay Store)

Hand-poured relaxation candles in gorgeous scents
While lighting a candle isn’t self-care, it may become a wonderful part of a meditation, yoga, or unwinding routine that encourages her to carve out space for herself. This trio of beautifully scented candles is handmade and lovingly packaged by a small shop in Washington, making classic Valentine’s gift for her that much more thoughtful.
($34.80, Viva Workshop)
Ombre tulip polymer clay earrings
For Valentine’s jewelry that’s whimsical and affordable, I love the brass details that coordinate with those ombre hearts from Farah Brigante, a mom and maker whose sunflower earrings captured our hearts as fundraisers for Ukraine.

A fresh potted plant that lasts longer than cut flowers
She’ll think of you every time she looks at this healthy little plant in its sweet blush-pink pot. Though hopefully, she thinks of you even more often than that!
