Valentine’s day is finally here! While this day is typically reserved for couples, there is no reason that you cannot consider your parents your valentine. They have been your support system since the beginning of your life, and it wouldn’t be a bad idea to show them your appreciation on this special day.

When we think of Valentine’s day, one of the first few things that pop into our minds is the gifts. The traditional gifts usually include a V-day card, flowers, chocolates, and DIY from kids. Sure, nothing beats a handmade card from the little ones, but parents sometimes need more than just flowers and candy from their loved ones. So, if you’ve run out of ideas on what to gift your loved ones on V-day, scroll down as we list a few gift options for Valentine’s day that will be perfect for your parents.

1. A Vitamin C Serum

You don’t have to be a skincare fanatic to have a basic skincare routine. Having a skincare routine is part of self-care for parents. A vitamin C serum protects skin against sun damage, evens skin tone, and reduces wrinkles, among other things. You could also do your bit of research and choose a serum that will suit their skin type. Or buy a product that your mom has had on her wish list for a long time. Either way, it’s a win-win.

2. Luxury Handmade Soap Gift Set

It’s hard for moms to catch a break. Bath time could be the perfect opportunity for parents to unwind and relax after a long hectic day. That is why a handmade soap gift set could be the ideal gift for parents. When choosing a soap gift set, take into account if they have any preferences or are allergic to any scents or essential oils. You don’t want to gift them something with strong scents if they are sensitive to strong fragrances.

3. A Fresh Brew

Is your dad a coffee lover? Does your mom prefer tea? With a plethora of options available when it comes to hot beverages, you are sure to find one that will suit their palate. Whether they prefer a soothing blend before bedtime or need a bold cuppa of brew for a quick pick-me-up in the afternoon, you will be able to find something for everyone.

A cozy oversized hoodie is a perfect gift to give your loved one on Valentine’s. And the chances for you to go wrong with this one is very slim. They can pair it with jeans, leggings, or even a long slim skirt. It can also be worn indoors to beat the cold during the chilly months. You could either go for something with bold prints or plain ones in grey, black or nude colors.

5. Bath Bombs

A nice long bubble bath with a bottle of wine and a good book can be the perfect way to unwind after a long day. And the luxury of a bubble bath might be scarce when you’re a parent. Gift your parents bath bombs for a colorful bath experience so that they can pamper themselves and de-stress after a hectic day at work.

6. Yoga Pants

7. Silk Scrunchies

Self-care doesn’t have to be spa days and face masks. Something as simple as silk scrunchies could be a sweet surprise for your mum. They look chic, and the soft satin material is gentle on the hair, causing less hair breakage, unlike a traditional hair scrunchie.

8. A Pair Of Good Hoops
