The 14th of February is right around the corner, and with it comes Valentine’s Day, the day that celebrates romance and love around the world.

From Valentine’s Day favourites, to slightly less conventional gifts, we thought we’d together a little inspiration, so you can bring a smile to your partners face this season. And with presents ranging from the usual to the unusual, you can bet there’s something for your loved ones.
Traditional Valentine’s Day Gifts
Chocolates & Treats
There’s a reason chocolate is so high on everyone’s shopping when it comes to gifting. It’s simple, delicious and there’s a treat for everyone. Whether your loved one prefers dark, white, milk or even vegan chocolate, pick out a box of their favourites and make sure it’s looking pretty. And it’s affordable too, which is especially important when 2020 has been a cash-strapped year for a lot of people.
Thorntons have you covered for all your tasty treats this Valentine’s Day.
A Beautiful Valentine’s Day Bouquet
Flowers are a fabulous gift option. They’re fresh, natural and beautiful, perfect for showing some love to your significant other. A bouquet of 12 roses is a traditional way to go, and it screams romance. But for a more personal take, you can treat them just right with a vase full of their favourite flowers. From lilies and orchids, to peonies and tulips, it’s a Valentine’s favourite for a reason.
Bloom & Wild are the perfect choice for brilliant bouquets and plants.
Valentine’s Day is a popular time to pop the question, so it’s no surprise jewellery stores see a big influx of customers around this time. But it doesn’t have to be a wedding ring. Bracelets, necklaces, earrings and watches are all wonderful options that are bound to put a big, cheesy grin on your partners face. It doesn’t have to be diamonds and gold either. With so many affordable pieces out there, you might not have to splash out as much as you think.
Stunning jewellery are the name of the game at Goldsmiths.
For something a little more ‘adult’, you can’t go wrong with some lovely, lingerie. It’s a great way to spice things up on the special day, and you can find a ton of offerings. With classy, traditional, saucy and some downright strange lingerie out there, you can find one that suits your loved one. Just make sure you’ve got the right sizes, or this gift will fall a little flat.
There’s a reason boozy gifts are such a popular choice, as so many of us enjoy a tipple from time to time. And while your partner might be partial to a can or two of Carling, you might want to step things up on Valentine’s Day. From Champagne and fine wines, to upmarket whisky and pink gin, do your research and find the right fit for their taste buds.
For a delightful drink, Virgin Wines have a ton of brilliant beverages on offer.
A fragrance is a fantastic gift for Valentine’s Day. With so many stunning scents for men and women on offer, it can be a bit of a minefield to navigate. But so many retailers offer fragrance finding features that’ll make the process a little easier for you. Whether your partner likes something zesty and citrus-y, they prefer something floral or they like woody, smoky scents, there’s perfumes and aftershaves for everyone.
The Fragrance Shop are a top choice for stunning scents this Valentine’s Day.
Unusual Valentine’s Day Gifts
A Day Out
While a day out might sound like a regular, old date, it’s worth pushing the boat out. From fabulous meals at incredible restaurants, to day trips, tours and so much more, it’s worth checking websites like TripAdvisor to see what’s out there. Take them somewhere they’ve always wanted to go, ask them about their bucket list, and let them live out their dreams (within reason).
For a cracking day out Virgin Experience Days have you covered in 2021.
Personalised Valentine’s Day Gifts
There’s no better way to show some love on Valentine’s Day than with a unique and personal gift. Whether you make use of those old photos, paint them a pretty picture, or get their name engraved on a fine piece of jewellery, it can take a gift to the next level. Put your art skills to work and design them something pretty, or you can slap their favourite meme on a cushion, it’s a cracking gift that’s full of thought.

Novelty Gifts & Memorabilia
We all like a laugh, and while it might be a day that’s all about romance, that doesn’t mean we can’t have a chuckle at each other’s expense. There’s plenty of novelty items that are bound to tickle your partner. On the other hand, you can find something from their favourite movies, TV shows, or by a band they like. From t-shirts emblazoned with the adorable Baby Yoda, to Batman memorabilia, there’s bound to be marvellous merch for your loved ones.
Convenience is the name of the game with subscription boxes. A big box of goodies sent straight to your door on a weekly or monthly basis. But it’s not just food deliveries, you can get boxes dedicated to all kinds of things. From geeky memorabilia, to shaving essentials, beauty boxes and more, it’s the gift that keeps on giving. There’s even letterbox flower subscriptions, so you can send some love and follow Coronavirus guidelines.
A Voucher Book Full of Favours
This one is perfect for those forgetful, last minute gifts. Not just because you only need a pen and paper to get it done, but because it’s a pretty great present too. Pack it with vouchers for hugs, massages, breakfasts in bed, and maybe even something more risqué if you like. It’s cute, personal, and a fun and unusual gift that’s perfect for Valentine’s Day.
