Valentine’s Day is around the corner and while accessories, dresses, gadgets or flowers are the usual gifts being picked up for this day, gifting an ETF could also be a great idea. This is because the performance of ETFs is dependent on the movement of the stock market and their underlying holdings.

And the good news is that the major U.S. stock bourses are hitting a series of record highs this month on renewed optimism over speedy economic recovery from the pandemic-driven recession. Hopes of more fiscal relief package, signs of a healing labor market, continued progress in more vaccines, a rapid vaccination rollout and stronger-than-expected earnings bolstered investors’ confidence in the stock market and should keep the optimism alive.

Though almost every corner of the stock market is enjoying a rally, we have highlighted five ETFs that have been hot this year and could be a great gift for your loved ones. Let’s dig into the heart and soul of these ETFs:
