Valentine's Day gifts to win them over
Spoil your partner, yourself or even your friends this Valentine’s Day with gifts that make a statement and leave a lasting impression. We’re all about less cheese and more cool factor for Valentine’s Day, so before you pick up the standard bunch of roses or box of chocolates, check out our gift ideas below.
A gift is made even more special when it’s got a personal touch. Engrave a watch, carefully selected piece of jewellery, or signature pen with a special message or you and your partner’s initials.
Designer formal dresses for her and suits for him are an awesome gift for Valentine’s Day that you may not usually splurge on. Not sure of their taste? Create a handmade gift voucher for a shopping spree date so you can both have fun and pick out something you love.
A chocolate twist
Yes we all love chocolate so although it’s a typical gift we didn’t want to strike it off the list completely. Get creative and go for something a little different to suit your personalities, like a chocolate bouquet, a chocolate tasting tour or even some chocolate body paint.
Luxury designer shoes, handbags, watches (well designer anything really) is sure to impress that special him or her. And it doesn’t have to set you back a fortune – designer scarves and accessories like mobile phone cases and key rings are still really cool and won’t blow the bank.
Travel is a love shared by many, so you can’t really go wrong. Buy your partner (or maybe yourself) some new, lightweight luggage, flight vouchers or perhaps a last minute holiday for the two of you somewhere exotic.
Tips on getting Valentine’s Day right
Sometimes the delivery is more important than the gift itself, so make sure you think ahead and plan the best time and place to give the gift. Giving a Valentine’s Day gift even one day late is almost as bad as not giving a present at all (no one wants to be carrying around flowers on the 15th), so don’t leave it to the last minute. Do some research and purchase your gift ahead of time so it doesn’t go out of stock or get affected by dreaded shipping delays. If you need some temporary help with finances, you could get a personal loan with MoneyMe to get your Valentine’s Day sorted.
It’s hard to top these gifts, though you could combine them with one of our Valentine’s Day Ideas to make it extra special
