As I bookish lifestyle blogger, I know exactly what Valentine’s Day care package ideas she’ll love based on what both I and my cozy lifestyle readers love too. You can’t go wrong by making a special Valentine’s Day package based on these personally curated items, many of which are easy to shop at your favorite retailers, like Amazon and Target.


First, you will need a gift box, gift bag, or other Valentine package for your goodies. Mailing your present out? The post office often has lots of holiday-themed packaging to choose from too.

Remember to also get a Valentine’s Day card or DIY one (it would be especially cute to have a child make it) with beautiful literary love quotes or fairy tale quotes.

Next, let’s fill it up with these ideas for a Valentine’s Day care package!

Below are more details about these specific gift ideas for your Valentine’s care package for her.


There’s nothing as comforting as a throw blanket, and I especially love the super soft and snuggly Barefoot Dreams blanket for this occasion. I love them, readers of The Literary Lifestyle love them, and even my cats love them. They are beloved for a reason!


Reading is my own personal favorite form of Winter self-care and, for Valentine’s Day specifically, I recommend Canterbury Classics’s leatherbound Love Poems (pictured above) Love Letters of Great Men (which was featured in the Sex and the City movie).



Scent is so powerful in evoking powerful emotions. I’m a candle enthusiast myself, and for Valentine’s Day, I recommend the universally beloved Maison Louis Marie No.04 Bois DE Balincourt candle. It’s an especially romantic, earthy, and woody scent featuring sandalwood with a dominant cedarwood plus sandalwood accord, supplemented by a spicy cinnamon nutmeg complex with an earthy vetiver note.

I am on my fourth one now, and I can tell you that it smells exactly like it sounds, and it is not overpowering at the same time.


Candy is the most obvious and necessary of these Valentine care package ideas. For the day of love, you can’t go wrong with conversation hearts and/or Hershey kisses!


You may be wondering how it’s possible to include flowers in your Valentine’s Day care package. Well, I have a solution for you: real flowers that are specially preserved to last for up to 2-3 years. They are SO chic!

Framed Photo

A framed photo always evokes all the feels as a gift and, for Valentine’s Day, I especially love this small 4″ x 4″ silver plated heart frame, perfect for a desktop or nightstand.


Jewelry is another obvious Valentine’s Day gift for her to feel special. No need to go overboard! This heart pendant necklace is a trendy style right now that’s super affordable, yet it also evokes love with its shape and an alphabet letter that’s special to her. I have it myself, and it’s super cute!

Add on this trinket heart dish to hold it and make for cute home decor.


One can never have too many mugs, and warm drinks always make you feel extra comforted and cared for. For Valentine’s Day, I love this cheeky Rae Dunn “Love Bug” mug. She has the cutest merchandise!


Nothing makes me feel as good as new pajamas. Here, I am linking up my personal favorite brand of pajamas in a red-striped colorway that can be worn even beyond Valentine’s Day. (I size up in these bestsellers.)


It’s extra important to care for your skin in the cold, dry Winter. Since Valentine’s Day makes you want to smooch more, I have selected the Laneige Lip Mask, which is a personal favorite AND a reader favorite. It’s super thick and hydrating — great to leave on your nightstand and use before bed.

You can also add in the high-quality, spa-like Necessaire bath care products. They are truly worth the hype and the ONLY thing I used on my body. I especially love The Body Wash.

Or, share some of my favorite Olive & June nail polish for at-home manicures. I haven’t gone back to the nail salon in YEARS since I started using it.

“‘One can never have enough socks,’ said Dumbledore.”

– J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

Dumbledore wasn’t wrong. I’ll add that one can never have enough snuggly socks. These giant heart socks are both cheap and festive to pamper the lady in your life.
