As we noted in our mega gift guide for every kind of mom, not all women like the same things. Some are into fuzzy, pink handcuffs. Others like three-pound gummy worms. So what we’ve attempted to do below is find Valentine’s Day gifts for several dozen specific female archetypes that we hope will at least spark some ideas. And the fact that these are all available on Amazon means they’ll get here fast. (And check out our guide to Valentine’s Day Gifts for Every Type of Man.)
For the woman with a vinyl collection
A few months ago, she mentioned wanting a new record player. Show her you were paying attention.
For the woman who likes chocolate
Chocolate: It’s a classic gift for a reason. But don’t be a bore and get her a box of Godiva. Instead, pick up a couple of bars from Marou, makers of the widely beloved single-origin, handmade chocolate from Vietnam. Plus, the wrappers are pretty.

Get her a proper watering can, like this mini version of the status-y Haws.
For the woman who worships the moon
For the woman who loves getting her feet rubbed
If she stands on her feet all day, or if she just deserves to be pampered, this is one of the best-reviewed (and heated) foot massagers on Amazon. If she’d rather more of a foot-spa situation, try this one.

For the woman who’s already thinking about 2020
