Love is in the air. It’s the month of cupid, and whether you celebrate Valentine’s Day on the 14th, throughout the month or all year long, Navyonline.com has a wealth of unique Navy gifts that you’ll love to give. From REAL U.S. Naval Academy clothing like Navy sweatshirts and shorts, to bags, to home decor, to pet accessories and more—you can show someone you care with that perfect-for-them find. Or grab something special that you adore and show yourself some love. Either way, you’ll be sending a valentine to the Brigade, since all proceeds go to the midshipmen. Happy Valentine’s Day to all! Let’s take a spin around the Naval Academy store.

Something Sweet

It’s easy to grab some sweets for your sweet. There are warm cuddly sweatshirts and sweatpants and a range of accessories that make every heart happy. Here are some of our top picks for some sweet gifts.

Pretty in Pink or Grey: These toddler heart dresses look adorable, and you’ll also love knowing that they’re made well too. Constructed with 100% cotton (grey has polyester too), they feature ruched sleeves for an of-the-moment yet classic look. The hearts are fun and the white polka dots sweeten the deal. She’ll love the flouncy skirt and the USNA pride!

Modern Wine Glasses: For your next picnic or special meal together, get this set of 2 stemless wine glasses with etched crests. They’re a touch of elegance that pairs well with a romantic dinner, casual night in or a Navy win celebration. Beautiful and practical, they’re a gift that can’t miss.

Something Shiny: Everyone loves a bauble or treat now and then. Make them feel special with pretty earrings and other jewelry that show some bling. Or give them that present that they’ll never get for themselves. When it comes with a Navy twist, they’ll be thrilled to show it off!

Golden Opportunity: The Brielle Navy necklace is 17” of golden Navy love. This delicate piece of jewelry dresses up everything from a basic t-shirt to a stylish sweater. Your Navy devotee will adore having a keepsake piece of jewelry that shows their loyalties. It’s just the right gift for Valentine’s Day—or any day you want to wow them.

A Personal Purse: Not only is the Kara crossbody Purse Go Navy purse infinitely practical for home games (it’s stadium approved), it’s also made from butter-soft vegan leather and boasts an easy-to-reach pocket for keeping everything organized. The size is wise at 6.5” wide by 4.5” high. A snap closure makes it a cinch to access, and the “Go Navy” lettering makes it irresistible.

Something Salty

What’s saltier than the sailor that weathered the sea? How about the gifts they’ll love? We’ve netted a number of finds that are 100% Navy for your favorite Navy fan. These are REAL Navy, not available outside the Yard, and always supporting the midshipmen. Show your Navy love!

Show It With a Sticker: Like the midshipman it honors, the I Heart My Mid Decal is built to last. It’s made to withstand any weather, so you can stick it on your SUV, your mountain bike or your skis—and let the world know how important your mid is to you.

Give Him a Bone: This whimsical bone magnet is a real treat. It can go on your car, your fridge, a lamp or wherever you want to have a little fun. Your dog will thank you for reading his mind!

Tie for the Win: The N* tradition is one of tremendous pride and history. Give him that and more with two 100% silk, fully lined and hand-printed ties in an N* tie boxed set in signature Navy blue and gold. He’ll love them both, and he’ll love showing his Go Navy spirit whenever he puts them on.

Something Cuddly

Maybe your Valentine is in the mood for something to cuddle. From the softest Navy blankets, to pillows and other huggable gifts, Navyonline.com brings the snuggle.

Get Your Goat: You can’t get much cuter than a Bill the Goat who has been miniaturized and made as soft as a sheep. Standing just a foot tall with a sweet smile and the N* charm, he’s a keeper. The Navy goat—He’s all mettle on the gridiron and all heart-melter when you give him to your honey.

Goats for Pets: No pet can resist this Bill the Goat Huggle Hound Large Pet Toy, made more durable with their patented Tuffut Technology and hand-stitched fabrics. It has several squeakers for loads of fun. When it’s dirty, just toss it in the wash. Let your pooch get in the Navy game too!

Something Delicious

Valentine's Day is a great time to give a treat, whether it’s locally roasted coffee beans or something even more decadent. Don’t forget a care package for your midshipman; there’s one to satisfy every craving.

Drink it Up: Nothing says I care like whole bean 1845 Signature Blend Ceremony Coffee that’s roasted right here in Annapolis at Ceremony Coffee. This special blend is creamy with notes of dark chocolate and caramel, a sweet treat for your funny Valentine. Send it with a Navy mug for bonus points.

Say You Care with a Care Package: Give one of our fun and delicious SnackMagic care packages. Choose one already designed, or customize with the snacks and drinks from our menu to celebrate everything from their favorite Navy sport to late night study sessions. You can even include photos and letters from home. Mail them the love!
