Valentine’s Day Gift Guide
Valentine’s Day Gifts for her
Valentine’s Day can be an overwhelming experience, especially for those looking for the perfect gift.
If you don’t want to push the boat out too much (especially if it’s a new relationship or you’re feeling the pinch after Christmas) you can still show her you how much you care.
Whether you decide to give your wallet a bashing or not, there are plenty of great gift ideas out there suited to all budgets.
Do you have any tips for those looking to save a little money this year?
Jewelry is a great option and luckily for you, pendants are the ‘in-thing’ this season. A colorful gem is the perfect addition to any lucky ladies’ wardrobe and is something that can be as ‘expensive’ or as ‘in-expensive’ as you like. Just make sure you pick a color you know she’ll adore.
If you have any fashion suggestions for men wishing to buy their girlfriends, wives, and friends a piece of jewelry, be sure to let us know what they are.
If in doubt – buy chocolate!
What girl doesn’t have a sweet tooth, especially when it comes to Orange Peel French Dusted Truffles from Serenata?
These delectable delights are an ideal option for the foodie as they are created using the finest raw ingredients. They’re also handmade by some of the most dedicated chocolatiers in the world. The only problem you may encounter is trying not to eat them yourself!
If you’re unsure of your Valentine’s taste, opt for a chocolate box encasing an array of white, milk and dark varieties!
If you’re lucky, your love may even let you have one or two!
Valentine’s Day Gifts for your girlfriend
Looking for the perfect token of love for that special someone?
Then treat your loved one to a Valentine’s Day gift that lets your partner know exactly how you feel.
Flowers are a great idea, especially as there are so many different styles, colors and varieties to choose from, and picking the perfect bouquet is a great way to say ‘I love you’ this Valentine’s Day. From a dozen red roses to a picture-perfect arrangement of opulent tulips, Serenata Flowers have plenty for you to string your bow with.
If you’re looking for something that lasts a little longer, opt for a houseplant instead.
From mini orchids to pink Azalea baskets, white blooms and orange pot roses, there are a variety of different pot plants to choose from. All are guaranteed to put a smile on your Valentine’s face.
Go the extra mile and buy them a vase or a pretty pot to display their new houseplant in.
If you want to show your wild side, buy lingerie.
However, don’t just opt for any ordinary lingerie, be original. Make sure you keep it tasteful and empower your other half to feel absolutely gorgeous.
Valentine’s Day Gifts for a friend
Let’s face it, buying a Valentine’s Day gift for a friend has to be one of the hardest tasks to conquer.
If your aim is to get out of the friend zone, then the key is to pick wisely.
A beautiful bouquet of flowers is guaranteed to suffice but why not add a little something else to the equation, such as a bottle of bubbles. Yes, roses and champagne may be cliché but we can guarantee it’s exactly what she wants on Valentine’s Day!
If she is a he, add a bottle of aftershave to the mix! There are a number of great fragrances on the market today, including a variety of modish and moreish masculine scents.
Of course, buying a Valentine’s gift for a friend doesn’t have to be romantically inclined, it can also be a way to show them how much you value their friendship.
If you’ve been friends for many years, you’re guaranteed to have a few ideas up your sleeve.
We’d love to hear what you’ve bought your favourite friends for Valentine’s Day in the past?
Valentine’s Day Gifts for him
Whether you’re buying a little something for your brother, your best friend or your loved one, there are plenty of Valentine’s Day gifts ‘for him’ to choose from.
If he’s a whiskey connoisseur, give the aficionado the opportunity to taste a multitude of Scotch variants – all from the comfort of his very own home bar.
Even if he’s not a scotch fan, there are a variety of wine, ale and spirit hamper on the market, so you’re guaranteed to find something to suit his tastes…and yours if your loved one decides to share the joy!
For the guy who is more into his style, a unique tie is an ideal gift.
Choosing something that isn’t too wild is a safer bet than choosing an over-the-top design, however, try and steer clear of the classic navy. A tie with two alternating sides is something both versatile and unusual.
If your man is well groomed, keep him that way by buying him a deluxe grooming set! Many of today’s pampering sets come complete with various essentials – including aftershave, deodorant, body spray, beard balm, and soap.
Choose a subtle fragrance if you’re unsure of his favourite scents.
Valentine’s Day Gifts for your husband
It’s difficult to get the man that has everything a unique Valentine’s gift, which is why gourmet goods are always a safe bet.
From filling it with the best of British cheeses to choosing a gastronomic gift box, what man wouldn’t be thrilled with a foodie-inspired Valentine’s Day present?
If you’re looking for more foodie-related presents, a briefcase BBQ is guaranteed to suffice.
From preparing specialty ribs to delectable cheeseburgers, a portable grill is an ideal gift for the manly man in your life. Come rain or shine, this gift is the perfect sidekick when it comes to preparing a variety of grilled dishes.
This present is certainly one way to get your husband to offer to make dinner more often!
Valentine’s Day Gifts for your parents
Valentine’s Day doesn’t mean buying gifts for only those you’re romantically involved with but also, those you love for other reasons.
No doubt your parents have been with you through thick and thin, so why not show them just how much you appreciate them with a heavenly hamper.
From ales and cheeses to chutneys and chocolates, a tailor-made hamper is an ideal gift for mum and dad and one that will certainly come in handy – providing one doesn’t eat more than the other!
Another great gift idea for your parents is a trip away! It’s highly likely they’re too busy looking after you to treat themselves to a relaxing getaway, so why not book them a romantic country spa and hotel escape.
This is a gift guaranteed to put you in their good books for the rest of the year! You can even pop a bouquet of flowers and a bottle of bubbly in their hotel room as a surprise on their arrival. Just make sure you pick somewhere that’s easy to get to and be sure to tell them what to pack in advance!
