Valentines Gift Ideas

EI remember my first boyfriend and my first valentines day like it was yesterday, me dressed in red  & him with red roses, beautiful card and heart shaped chocolates. We didn’t go on a date per say it was kind of gift exchange type of date as I was only 12 or 13, I had written him a card and decorated my heart out ..aaah the good ol’ days of hand written letters.. nostalgia moment right there.

Things have moved on since then, nowadays we are at an advantage with so many options to choose from. We can go naughty or simple good old fashioned dinner date or what I like to call the ‘up and coming eat at home kinda date‘. Call me old fashioned but I do love the idea of a loved one cooking for me instead of spending money (though I am not averse to it). It’s more personal and more romantic I think if your partner or yourself cook a meal (even together), set the table and enjoy yourselves. Valentines like other celebrated holidays we give gifts of sorts and today I wanted to share with you some gift ideas for your partner and also one or two for yourself (yes I give myself gifts too).


Flowers – Flowers are a must for Valentines, your lady friend, mamma or auntie will appreciate these big time.

Nothing says I love you, appreciate you than personalised gifts. Call me crazy but I live for personalised gifts, they somehow have a way or warming my heart and break through any ice.

    Great ideas here! The spa experience, I AM ALLLLL about! I am not a big V-Day person, but won’t mind these as some surprise gifts throughout the year.

    I am all about the classic flowers and chocolate!

    I like this list! However, I am totally anti-valentines day. I just feel like for me, I’d rather feel my husband’s love all the time, than have him force it on a holiday. That being said, when he does surprise me with flowers that day, I have to get all giddy, it’s a must. I LOVE FLOWERS. HA!

    I hardly ever get anything for V-Day just because we don’t do much for it. I do think however that I would really like a gift or two haha. I truly think that all gifts are good gifts and “most” men put a good amount of thought into it.

    This is a great list of V-Day gifts! It really is just around the corner! In just about 2 weeks, it’ll be over before we know it! This is a great list of gift ideas. I love that it is a great variety and that they all have different prices which is great. Thanks for sharing this, reminds me to get a move on and order my gift for my mom already!

      Thanks Ashley, wanted to give my readers options

    My husband and I definitely go the homemade at home route. He has done things like hide kid valentines all throughout my stuff so I would find them as the year went on, a jar full of piece of paper with the reasons he loves me, homemade paper flowers…the list goes on and on!

    • January 28, 2015 / 7:13 pm

    Funny, hubby and I do not make a big fuss about Valentines day.. I have made him coupons for the last 2 years that I secretly hide so that he does not use them lol

    • January 28, 2015 / 7:10 pm

      hahaha you are crazy why hide them but hun i think whatever works for you both is the right thing to do.

    These are such cute gift ideas for V-day!! I also love when my husband cooks for me…it just takes off so much stress!! I’m going to suggest to him that he get me a spa gift basket this year…I like that idea!

    • January 28, 2015 / 6:50 am
