Best Thrive Market Products: Valentine’s Day Edition 

Last Update: February 8, 2024

There are lots of ways to show that you love someone: a handwritten letter, a bouquet of flowers, maybe even a home-cooked meal. On Valentine’s Day, expressing your love is the name of the game — and for many people, that means giving a thoughtful gift to your sweetheart.

We asked Thrive Market employees for their best recommendations for gifts they’d love to give (and receive!) this Valentine’s Day. From skincare products perfect for a day of at-home self-care to spicy ingredients to elevate a DIY dinner date, here are our best V-Day picks to give to your long-term love, new crush, or even your BFF. 

For the skincare obsessed: 

“I’ve been seeing this Pacifica brow mask all over TikTok and I’m dying to try it. I like to use frownies to prevent forehead wrinkles, but silicone is supposedly really good for your skin and recommended by plastic surgeons for wrinkle and scar repair. The best part is that it makes the masks reusable!” —Caroline, Merch Marketing Associate 

To spice up your Valentine’s Day dinner: 

“I would LOVE to get this chili crisp for Valentine’s Day. If we were making Valentine’s dinner at home, I’d sneak it into every course (don’t sleep on topping your vanilla ice cream with it!)” —Carolyn, Partnerships Director 

To gift a good night’s sleep: 

“I remember reading that ‘to love is to be at rest’. Loving means relinquishing control of our lives in order to cooperate with something bigger than ourselves. I find it hard to rest. My body gets tired, but my brain can’t calm down. I talked to my older sister about my sleep troubles, and she gifted me this multi-mineral supplement to take before bed. Resting takes effort, but the hope here is that the small acts of care we extend to ourselves can snowball into healthier habits. It’s difficult, but I have to remind myself that I must let go of this day so that I can love the next day more deeply.” —Jon, Writer & Creative Production Coordinator

A sour treat for someone sweet: 

“Since my girlfriend and I love sour candy, it was an instant win for us when we found out Thrive Market carries our favorite Sourmelon Bites. The fact that it’s a plant-based treat with zero artificial sweeteners makes us feel less guilt when devouring multiple bags.” –Garrin, Senior Designer 

To lovingly satisfy their snack craving: 

“My husband cried tears of joy when he found out we carry these chips now (and it helps that they are a good $3 cheaper at Thrive Market). Snacks are love, so he’s getting chips for V-Day.” —Laura, Managing Editor 

For a nostalgic Valentine’s Day breakfast: 

“I like to make pancakes at home, but I always make a ‘healthier’ recipe using only bananas, oats, and eggs. My fiance pretends to like them, but he often jokes about wanting the old-fashioned pancakes smothered in syrup that he had as a kid. For Valentine’s Day, I’d surprise him with a stack of these classic pancakes (they’re still made with organic flour and no artificial ingredients — feels like a good compromise!) —Amy, Senior Editorial Writer 

A healthier take on a classic Valentine’s Day gift: 

“One bite and I was hooked. These dark chocolate truffles are so decadent and addictive, and the wrapper is compostable! If you give these to someone you’re trying to win over this V-Day, they’ll fall for these truffles and you. Sounds like a win-win to me!” —Jeff, Design & Organic Social Manager

For a day of self-care: 

“I’m a huge skincare girly, so I strongly believe you can’t go wrong with gifting or receiving this holy grail skin cleanser. Its natural ingredients leave your skin looking and feeling hydrated and glowy all day. Oh, and did I mention it’s cruelty free and comes in eco-friendly packaging?” —Angie, Creative Project Coordinator

A scent-sual gift: 

“I’ve been on a journey to find clean fragrances, and this roller-ball fragrance oil is perfect. Its warm floral scent is subtle, yet I’ll still receive compliments. It can be either the perfect gift for your Valentine, or the ideal fragrance for your Valentine’s Day date night!” —Elisha, Senior Photographer
