Show the Love With Our Valentine Gift Ideas
It’s true, you know, chocolate brings us pleasure! This is because chocolate contains tryptophan, which is the building block of serotonin – the hormone that brings us happiness – and it also has phenylethylamine, a stimulant that is released when we fall in love. It’s no wonder then that we gift chocolates to those we love, and we associate chocolate with sheer joy and pleasure.
However, choosing a Valentine’s Day gift for your partner can be a challenging time! With all your great ideas being used up for Christmas, the turnaround on gift-giving can overwhelm some people. That’s why we want to help ease the pressure by creating the ultimate V-day gift guide so that you can enjoy the day for what it is and not spend it worrying about your gift.
First things first, you know your other half best! With our suggestions to help get you on the right track, the ultimate decision is yours to make, and we’re sure you can’t go wrong. With your personal insight and our gift guide, you are sure to impress. And, what’s more, you can do all this without breaking the bank! Read on to find out more.
A Luxurious Self Care Set
Make a day out of this gift and treat each other to a day of self-care, relaxation and togetherness. With face masks, massage oils and luxurious candles, there are plenty of options to choose from! Switch off your phones and unwind from the day-to-day grind together. This gift will not only help you both to reset and feel your best, but it’s a great way to spend some quality time together, putting the two of you first. Throw in a bottle of champagne to create the ultimate at-home spa experience, and you can’t go wrong.
Flowers are a timeless classic, and whether your special someone is a hopeless romantic or not, a beautiful bouquet is always an appreciated gesture. From traditional red roses to seasonal tulips, it is easy to personalise your bunch for the best reaction. Plus, a great way to savour the gift is to add an elegant vase. Not only will it preserve the lift of the flowers, but it can act as a promise of more flowers to come. And, if your partner is not the flowers type, you could even go for a houseplant instead! When looked after, plants can last years and years, offering a thoughtful gift that will always remind your partner of you.
Planning a Day Out
Make some memories by gifting a fun activity for the two of you to do, whether pottery courses, gin tastings or cookery classes; there’s something out there for all couples that makes the perfect date for Valentine’s day. However, it is not essential to make a booking somewhere. Maybe your partner in crime would prefer a winter walk followed by a hot drink curled up together? Simply, making time in your calendar for something they love is enough to show them how much you care.
Jewellery and Accessories
Now don’t get down thinking you’ve got to spend a lot to make someone happy; it’s all about picking something they’ll genuinely love and treasure to remind them of you. That could be anything from a necklace or locket, a leather or chain bracelet, or a ring. It’s all about knowing your partner’s personal style and taste and impressing them with your knowledge. How about a watch, new wallet or simply a thoughtful keychain? Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be about grand gestures, personal gifts of affection can speak volumes.
