Valentine’s may nearly be upon us, but if you haven’t thought of a wonderful gift for that special someone in your life, we’re here to offer insightful input. Looking beyond the usual flowers, stuffed animals and the chocolates we’ve aimed to offer some ideas that will no doubt be genuinely appreciated.
Gifts For Him
A Message Bracelet
This discreet and unobtrusive bracelet is perfect for a guy who is reluctant to wear any kind of accessory. H Samuel is one of the most trusted names in jewellery and has a range of muted, understated options in bracelets for men.
This is for the utterly chilled guy who likes nothing better than to veg out in front of the telly or curl up with a book. In case you’re wondering, a slanket is a blanket with sleeves – it keeps the arms warm but free to use the remote or eBook! Find me a Gift has slankets and much more for you to check out.
Gift an Experience
A clever way to give a present and gain some time together, gift him an experience that you know he will well and truly enjoy! Virgin Experience Days have gift options for him such as a thrilling ride in a high end race car, standup comedy tickets, a football stadium tour or a whisky blending experience! You can currently find 15% off on the Voucherbox site.
Not a romantic gift or a very valuable one, we’ll grant you! But if your man has a sense of humour, these personalised socks will keep him grinning right down to his toes!
Gifts For Her
A Photo Print
Take time to pick out a picture of the two of you that you know she really likes – maybe it’s from the first week you met, maybe from a previous Valentine’s – and have it immortalised on a print. Wall canvases are the obvious choice, but also allow thought for cushions, wall clocks, tee shirts, mugs or numerous other prints. Snapfish and MOO should be your first ports of call if this is the gift you choose!
Personalised Date Night Token Box
These contain ideas for dates; candlelit dinners, bowling, movie trips… practically any scenario for any couple. Let her decide when to use the tokens you’ve given her and you’re gifting her the promise of shared evening together too. Not on the High Street offer date night token boxes that can also be personalised.
Jewellery is always, always, a safe bet when it comes to buying gifts, with birthstone jewellery being even more so. For an even more personalised touch purchase both hers and your own birthstone, and get her a mixed birthstone locket!
