Feb 8, 2019 6:28 AM

Struggling to know what to get your significant other? We’ve got you covered with the best Valentine’s Day gift ideas

TODO alt text

Ah Valentine’s Day gifting. A confusing minefield of chocolate roses, impractically large teddy bears and teeny tiny underwear… Fear not, though, we are here to help you battle this holiday we love to hate with our Valentine’s Day gift guide. Whether you’re buying for him, for her, for a food lover, a home lover, or a not been very long a lover, you will find the perfect gift here…

1. For all the love songs

The general rule for Valentine’s Day gift ideas seems to be that if it comes in pink or red then you can blag it’s a romantic present. Luckily the Ultimate Ears Wonderboom comes in both Cashmere Pink and Fireball Red, so you can whisper sweet nothings into each other’s ears while listening to this compact speaker’s 86 decibels of clear trebles and booming bass.

2. A classic box of chocolates

Because if you are going to go down the clichéd route of chocolates, you are going to want to make them the best. Hotel Chocolat’s Valentine’s Sleekster box is made up of 27 irresistible heart-shaped chocolate caramels, fruits, tipples and pralines. Sounds delectable.

3. For capturing those precious memories

Look, another example of how rosy hues instantly make anything an appropriate Valentine’s Day gift idea. If you really want to treat your other half and get them something that they will actually use then the Fujifilm Instax Mini is an awesome gift. It takes stunning snaps with a retro vibe filter and instantly prints them out, plus there’s an all important Selfi mode for when you are taking those #couplegoals shots.

4. A whole lot of Lempi

Lempi conveniently means love in Old Finnish and conveniently, this Skandinaviskcandle smells divine – a classically romantic blend of rose and strawberries, garden peony and oakmoss. It comes in two sizes, so you can pick one to suit your budget and depending how in Lempi you are feeling.

5. Just a couple of mugs

If you aren’t afraid of going down the slightly cheesy route, then as far as matching couple’s mugs go, we actually think these Sass and Belle offerings are super cute.

6. A cute (if not slightly forward) neon lamp

Light up your Valentine’s life/bedside table with this neon light. Is this the kind of thing you can buy for yourself? We are going to go with a yes…

7. A to-the-point print

Say it like it is with this print from Jealous Gallery.

8. Go old school with a mix tape (kind of)

Ah a mix tape. Does it get more romantic? Yes, yes it does, with a mixed vinyl!! You can now stick all your loved up tunes onto a personalised 12in vinyl, thanks to Mixpixie.

9. A Valentine’s Day gift idea that gives back

A practical Valentine’s Day gift? Yes, they do actually exist. This Dopper water bottle is the perfect gift for your eco-warrior significant other. Each Dopper bottle saves around 40 plastic disposable bottles a year, plus, five per cent of the brand’s profits go to the Dopper Foundation, which helps provide access to safe drinking water worldwide.

Couldn’t have put it better ourselves. This wall decoration from Umbra is perfect if you are buying for a home loving other half. The slogan comes in 10 parts so you can shape it however you like.

11. A cute alternative to chocolates

The perfect little token if you don’t go all out on Valentine’s Day gift ideas but still want to show some appreciation, Biscuiteers have loads of gorgeous iced biscuits that make a quirky alternative to chocolates. Oh, and if they don’t get this reference, we reckon you really need to think about whether you have a future with this person (or make them watch re-runs of Friends).

12. A feel good make up bag

Naww, isn’t this cute? What could be a nicer Valentine’s Day gift idea than a daily reminder of how lovely you look? Plus this makeup pouch from alphabet bags, comes in a gift box that can be personalised, if you want to make it extra special.

13. A budget friendly Valentine’s Day gift idea. Literally

Does it get any more romantic than a reminder you can’t budget? Well actually we like the idea of a date night money box, and saving up for a movie night or fancy meal is way more fun than putting money in an ISA. This ceramic number from Oliver Bonas is beautiful, we kind of want it just to liven up our bookshelves.

14. A yard of ale

All men like beer right? And quite a lot of women, too, right? So a yard of it from Beer Hawk seems like a sound choice, if not slightly clichéd (for men, anyway). But they are craft beers and they do come in a very long box, so that’s novel.

15. A personalised map

Mark a special place or a special occasion with a personalised map print from The Design Conspiracy. You can pick the typography and location, and then The Design Conspiracy source a vintage (or slightly newer, depending on your choice) map. Your wedding day? The place you first met? Your favourite pub? The choice is yours.

17. Make a scrapbook

If you’ve got plenty of time before the big day, why not make all those lovely memories you have together? Print off some photos, dig out the tickets stubs from the first film you went to see together, the first note they wrote you, the lid of the first beer you shared (don’t pretend you don’t still have all that stuff).

Published

By

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has called for prayers for the speedy recovery of Ebonyi State governor, Dave Umahi , the wife of Benue State Governor Samuel Ortom , Eunice, as well as other Nigerians who have tested positive to COVID-19.
The PDP described the increase in the spread of the pandemic across the country as disturbing.
The party in a statement by its spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, however, restated its charge to Nigerians not to succumb to fear but at the same time redouble their vigilance and adherence to preventive measures of personal hygiene, social and physical distancing and early reporting of symptoms.
“The PDP urges Nigerians not to let down their guard but remain conscious of the reality of COVID-19, especially with the easing of social restrictions in the country.
“The party urges the federal government to intensify efforts in awareness campaign as well as providing economic stimulus to minimize social exposure and vulnerability of Nigerians in various sectors of endeavours.
“The PDP restates its call for the concerted commitment of all citizens in reciprocating the sacrifices of our health workers and others on the front lines to defeat the pandemic in our country,” the statement read in part.
