Attention boyfriends and girlfriends across the country: This is your week to shine!
We’re just days away from Valentine’s Day and the pressure is on to finalize some sweet plans and purchase that oh-so-thoughtful gift.
For those still looking for the perfect present, we may be able to help! Introducing the men and women of Bachelor Nation.
We’ve asked some of our favorite contestants from previous seasons to share a gift that would make February 14 a bit more special. Spoiler alert: Their advice ain’t bad at all.
“I think something heartfelt, something a little bit more sentimental because Valentine’s Day is a day for love,” Corinne Olympios shared with E! News at OK! Magazine‘s Pre-Grammys party. “It’s not like a birthday where you get like a fun present. It’s something more sentimental.”
And regardless of your price point or connections, many would argue that it’s the thought that truly counts.
“It doesn’t matter about price. It doesn’t matter how glorious the gift might be,” Jared Haibon explained to us. “[Ashley and I’s] favorite date is a dinner and a movie. One of our first dates outside of Bachelor Nation was dinner and a movie and it’s very calm and very relaxing and very nice.”
But enough with the chatting. It’s time to start shopping! Take a look at just some of the great gifts your favorite Bachelor and Bachelorette contestants picked out in our gallery below.

“I enjoy working with my hands. I also always enjoy learning new activities and skills. As I get older it is harder to find gifts for me, but these crates are the perfect gift to help me learn new skills, work with my hands, and allow me a product I will always enjoy!”
