Five Valentines Day Ideas
Posted on 27 July 2015
Lingerie - Lingerie is a great gift for him or her and something that can be appreciated by both! When buying lingerie for her you want to buy something soft and lacy that will make her feel great. Make sure you do your research and get the right size as the wrong size can undo all the good work you've done and actually make a negative impression. Personalised boxer shorts make a cool gift idea for men. You can emblazon 'Property Of...' or simply add your name with a few cute love hearts. Add a bottle of champagne and some chocolate coated strawberrys into the mix and you'll have an unforgettable evening.
Jewellery - If lingerie isn't really your thing (or perhaps it's too early in your relationship for that kind of thing) try jewellery - but be careful what type of jewellery you buy as this gift conveys a powerful message. For her you should look for earrings or a necklace. Make sure you have an idea of her taste. It would be good to know if her ears are pierced for example! For him you could try an engraved flask or watch. Be careful about buying a ring as a gift unless you are thinking about popping the question on Valentine's Day.
Adventure Date - For the adventurous couple, there are so many exciting, outdoors adventures to be had on Valentines Day. For a romantic adventure, try hot air ballooning. The views are fantastic and you can be near your partner and within conversation range. It's a serene and unique way of celebrating the day and they often offer champagne after the ride. If you're real thrill seekers, go bungy jumping or sky diving. The excitement will have you buzzing for hours afterward and it's a memory that can be shared for a lifetime.
Gift Baskets - Back safely on the ground, you can order pre-made gift baskets online or by visiting your local department store. Ideally, make up your own gift basket with treats you know your partner will love. There's a huge range of gifts you can add like chocolate, gourmet foods, champagne and beauty products to name a few. Always look for quality as you do not want your gift to come across as cheap - let your partner know what they're worth to you! For a truly romantic gift basket, add chocolates, bath salts, a hand massager and oil and promise a night of pampering and relaxation.
Quirky And Cute - Why not support small business and try out a site like Etsy. There's some really unique gift ideas available that are often handmade by local entrepeneurs and they're definitely gifts that you won't find in your local store. Items of interest are a caricature of your photo. You could either get you and your partner immortalised in cartoon or just a picture of you for him or her. Other options are a framed print of all the key moments in your relationship or handwritten cards with 52 reasons I love you. Sure to get a resounding... 'awwwww' and a kiss.
