Valetines day is just around the corner, the day for love, romance and of course gifts. So the big question at this time of year is what do you buy your valentine? Well, just in case you are sitting there pretty stumped I have some gift ideas that will hopefully inspire you and impress your other half this valentines day. Failing that you can make it up to them with some valentines activities instead.
Wine and chocolate
Wine and chocolates are always a good idea, however sometimes they can look a little predictable, especially if you opt for some last minute purchases from the corner shop. So why not go traditional with wine and chocolates but show them you planned it in advance by ordering chocolates that come in a personalised box as well as a personalised wine box that you can fill with their favourite bottle of red, white, rose, or even bubble. These personalised gifts are from Vanilla Reindeer and come complete with picture and text which you can use for a special message or romantic verse.

If wine and chocolates aren’t enough this year then how about a set of these beautiful copper champagne flutes from Vonsheef to go with a bottle of fizz. Stylish and practical these glasses are bound to be a hit on valentines day as well as a gift they can treasure for years to come and one that is sure to be a talking point when entertaining, and let’s be honest we never tire of hearing how much our gifts are adored by others.
If you are buying a valentines gift for someone who has everything then why not think out side the box, or better yet out side the world for their gift. I’m talking about going big with a statement gift and naming a star after them. A star for your star, romantic and beautiful and a great excuse to go late night star gazing together too. Despite being a gift that is quite literally out of this world the price is surprisingly affordable at only £11.99 from Find Me a gift.
Perfume and Aftershaves
Another superb choice for valentines day is perfume or aftershave and I can certainly recommend the Seksy collection for the women. There are currently three fragrances to choose from, entice, embrace and elegance and each one comes bejewelled with a swarovski crystal to add an extra smile to your loved ones face. The embrace is my recommended one this valentines with fruity top notes of Orange Blossom, Blackcurrant and Pear open into a heart of Iris, Jasmine and Patchouli before settling into a delicious swirl of Tonka Bean Vanilla Musk & Praline Accord.
For the men my recommended fragrance brand would be Hugo Boss with the original being the best in my opinion.
Perhaps you want to treat your valentine to a massage this year but instead of letting someone else take all the credit you could treat them to a bottle of Massage oil by ANMA and a promise that you will give them the massage of their dreams. This oil is available in 6 fragrances, each with a different focus but it has to be the passion bottle with Patchouli & Ylang Ylang which helps relax the mind and activate romance and leaves the skin soft and silky that is your oil of choice come valentines day. The ANMA range oils are infused with naturally scented oils made with 98% Naturally derived ingredients, vegan friendly and never tested on animals. They can be ordered on line or purchased in your nearest superdrug store for only £9.99
Activity Gift box
If you have a larger budget and want to treat your other half to something special this valentines but are worried about getting it wrong then opt for an ultimate time together smart box for £129.99 from Buy a gift. This gift will ensure you have something wonderful to look forward to together from a spa day to a night away or even a more adventurous activity day. With over 995 experiences to chose from across the country you are bound to find something the perfect way to spend quality time together this valentines.
