Top Five Valentine’s Day Presents


Another year has gone swiftly by and it’s already time to start planning the next bout of wonderful gifts for your loved ones. Running out of ideas? Whether you need a fun and laid back present for your new sweetheart or you’re looking for a way to spice up a long-standing relationship, this ultimate list is bound to be a sure-fire hit.

The Classics

Kicking off with the benchmark gifts for Valentine’s Day…some may say that they can be a little standard, but really we have some guaranteed winners. Frankly it’s quite difficult to go wrong with any of these:

  • Chocolate
  • Flowers
  • A Cuddly Toy
  • Jewellery
  • Champagne

Whether you want to surprise your valentine with a red rose, celebrate the love with a bit of bubbly or simply inject a bit of extra sweetness and sparkle into your romantic day, these are the perfect gifts to rev up the romance!

A Little Goes A Long Way

My personal favourite is to take the sentimental route, as I think it shows how much you care about your partner. Whether it’s a personal gesture that may not be quintessentially ‘romantic’ or a cute, or a homemade token that will brighten their day, this is a fail-safe way to let your special someone know that you’re thinking about them:

  • Picture Collage/Scrapbook
  • Date-Night Jar
  • Homemade Meal
  • Coupons for everyday things
  • Something tailored to your partner’s interests (A book/film etc.)

Try Something New

Experiencing something together is often a great way to spend Valentine’s Day as you get to learn more about your partner and create memories.

  • Date ideas… (Ice skating, dancing lessons, dinner)
  • Pamper Night
  • Treasure Hunt of Love (Hide little presents/notes around with clues leading to the next one)

This one is even better if the activity you choose is something that you’ll both be horrendously bad at…you’ll either find a hidden skill or, worst case scenario, spend the day in stiches with each other.

Get Naughty

There’s nothing wrong with approaching Valentine’s Day with a few cheeky ideas, it’s a perfect way to take a break from your busy lives, and it’s bound to help rekindle the romance…

  • Aphrodisiac Food (Chocolate, strawberries, oysters etc.)
  • Edible Underwear…if you’re feeling adventurous
  • Handcuffs/Blindfold
  • Lingerie

These can be used as a more light-hearted option, either as a jokey gesture or as a fun way to let loose together and unleash your inner animal! Wink wink…

Serious Business

Or lastly, if it’s long-term, you already know that you’re head over heels for your partner, and you want to take it a little further in the stages of your relationship, you could opt for some presents that show that you’re in it for the long run.

  • Weekend Getaway
  • Buy a pet together
  • Engagement Ring…

You’ll be rolling in the romance with this variety of gift ideas. If not, you can enjoy yourself as a single-pringle, glam up and go out with your friends or just have a quiet night in with your backup boyfriends, Ben and Jerry.
