Valentine's Day present ideas for women

Moms deserve a little extra love year-round, but especially on Valentine's Day. To help you shop for the mom in your life, we’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite maternity and nursing clothes. Whether you’re shopping for your partner, daughter, or friend, we'd love to help you make her Valentine’s Day extra special with a thoughtful gift she’ll adore. 

For all the moms out there, we hope you find a moment this Valentine’s Day to celebrate the love in your life and remember how much you deserve to be loved. It can be easy to forget to take care of yourself when you’re so busy caring for everyone else – especially right now – but this year, be your own Valentine: find some time to practice self-care, indulge in something luxurious, and treat yourself to comfort and coziness.

As a bonus, since we love celebrating love, we’ve also included a few of our team’s favorite Valentine’s Day traditions. 

Check out our ideas below!

Best Valentine’s Gifts for Moms

Lucille Maternity & Nursing Nightgown

The perfect gift for moms who want something flirty, sweet, and super comfy, the Lucille features a flattering empire waist, which allows room for her baby bump or postpartum belly. Clip-down cups and light support make it the ideal choice for nighttime feedings, and the beautiful lace racerback bodice keeps straps in place while she nurses. This romantic nightgown will accentuate any mom’s natural beauty.

Simply Sublime® Lace Racerback Nursing Bra

The pullover, racerback style and removable padding make it perfect for everyday wear, and the beautiful lace back detail makes the everyday feel like a special occasion. Pregnant moms will love the comfortable, wire-free design, and breastfeeding moms will appreciate the easy, clip-down nursing access.

Whether she’s nesting or nursing, the Gabriella Cozy Robe will elevate her loungewear. This cozier-than-cozy robe has a relaxed fit but still looks put together, making it a great choice for late-night-nursing sessions or visits from the family. Perfect for pregnancy, the hospital, and life with a new baby, this robe is made from ultra-soft, plush fabric (like her favorite lightweight sweatshirt).

Find out why moms everywhere are taking the plunge!

KB Valentine’s Day Ideas

“My husband and I have a tradition of each picking a new recipe to make on Valentine’s Day, and then we cook together.”

“Once I got my hubby a gift from Man Crates, and it was a hit.”

“My husband and I are doing a cooking class (virtual). We started this a couple of years ago. We do the cooking class a week or so before, then make the dinner together for Valentine’s Day. What I’m getting him from my older son is a daddy playdate. I am setting them up with a full day of activities that will include breakfast, the park, and a dance party after a nap.”

“Starting February 1, for each of our kids, we put a heart with something we love about them on their door; we do that every day until Valentine’s Day. On Valentine’s Day, we love for them to wake up to something special... balloons or flowers and donuts. And usually chocolate. It always made me feel special as a kid when my dad would do that (and he would leave for work before we even woke up!), so we do the same.”

“We do a heart-themed dinner. I make whatever they’re into eating at the time. Dye the milk pink, cut the sandwich into a heart. Last year, I cut up string cheese into heart shapes. I sprinkled pink sprinkles over it, threw some appropriately colored/shaped fruit on the plate, etc.: easy, cheap, and reproducible in its own way every year. I also like to use Valentine’s Day-themed paper plates and napkins. And of course, we all wear pink/red during the day.”

No matter how you celebrate Valentine's Day, we hope you remember you're loved – this day and every day.
