If you’re struggling to find a Valentine’s Day gift for the person you’ve been stuck in self-isolation with since last March, we don’t blame you. After all, you can’t really sneak out unnoticed to get a present from their favorite store or secretly stop by the drugstore to pick up a Valentine’s Day card on your way home from work. But you can order a nice Valentine’s Day gift online — and we found lots of things that will make thoughtful Valentine’s Day gifts in this week’s sales roundup, all of which should arrive before Sunday, February 14. (We also found lots of things that’ll make great Valentine’s Day gifts for yourself or for a friend, if that’s more your speed this year.) And for even more sales coverage, sign up for our email newsletter.

If you’re still covering your body in checkerboard, here’s a colorful sweatshirt to add to your collection.

These delicate now-under-$50 earrings from Roxanne Assoulin would make a thoughtful Valentine’s Day gift that no one will know you got on sale.

Swedish sneaker brand Tretorn is one of our favorites, and we particularly like how pared down and simple the shoes are while being slightly more unexpected than Vans or Converse or even Vejas.

There’s lots of possible gifts for the valentine who’s become an outdoorsman during the pandemic over at Backcountry’s winter sale — like this slim Patagonia puffer jacket that’ll be just as useful for commuting once he has to start going back to the office.
