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.

    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!

  3. February 2, 2015 / 1:04 am

    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!

  4. February 1, 2015 / 11:23 pm

    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!

    • January 30, 2015 / 12:10 pm

      Thanks Michelle appreciate that.

    Great list to get in the Valentine’s mood! I sure would love that ring…

  7. January 28, 2015 / 8:00 pm

    I love how you showed many different ideas for different types of people. I love the necklace.

    • January 30, 2015 / 12:09 pm

      Thanks Ashley, wanted to give my readers options

  8. January 28, 2015 / 6:20 pm

    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

      He sounds like a keeper hun I can only dream of such lol. Thanks for sharing and I too love the homemade meal more

    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.

  10. January 28, 2015 / 6:26 am

    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

      I think it is so romantic having a home cooked meal and definitely suggest the spa day just to relax and enjoy some me time

  11. January 28, 2015 / 1:46 am

    Great list of gifts. I am not really a Valentines person at all. But I love your ideas. Thanks

    Love the infinity ring! I am hoping hubby gets me a necklace with my Dad’s signature on it.

    • January 28, 2015 / 6:21 am

    Oh my goodness I love that infinity love ring it is
    beautiful!!! Great list of Valentine’s Day gifts. The Toxicfox box looks like a fun gift to
    give (or box to get!) for any Valentine’s Day weekend!

    • January 28, 2015 / 6:21 am

      Absolutely i love this weekender kit its so funny, cheesy but yet romantic too. I too love the infinity ring

  14. January 27, 2015 / 10:28 pm

    I love, love, love Valentine’s Day! It’s the one day every year that my husband brings home flowers and I love treating him to something as well. This year I’m going to get him a couple CDs and a gift certificate to a massage. Love your ideas as well!

    • January 28, 2015 / 6:20 am

      Thanks Chelsea, I am sure he will love the massage and CDs, wonder what flowers he will bring you this year

    Body candy?! Ha ha! What on earth is that? Is it like chocolate spread? I love cheesy gifts at Valentine’s day since I’ve been in labour twice in the past four years on Valentine;s day! The romance is kind of sucked out of that day by birthdays and flashbacks 😉 Love your list though – can you hint at my husband about the infinity ring? 😉

    • January 28, 2015 / 6:20 am

      hahahaha oh dear I can only imagine, maybe this year you could have a spa day or have him cook a meal. The body candy is to be ‘spread on your partner’ and be enjoyed lol

  16. January 27, 2015 / 9:07 pm

    This is a HOT list! I would be in heaven with everything on this list. I’ve never been a big V Day fan, but I can never pass up jewelry, chocolates, or flowers. I’m hoping to get a spa gift this year. Fingers are crossed 🙂

    • January 28, 2015 / 6:18 am

      hahahaha I think i want a spa gift at least once this year and not only on v-day any day is welcome

  17. January 27, 2015 / 9:07 pm

    I need to figure out what to do for my hubby this year. Our wedding anniversary is on the 8th and then Valentine’s is the 14th so I would like to do something for both. He asked what I wanted and of course I haven’t a clue. I love this jewellery you posted especially that heart locket! So beautiful!

    • January 28, 2015 / 6:18 am

      Congrats on your upcoming anniversary and you could do something at home together – cook a meal together and watch a movie or go for a walk (weather permitting)

  18. January 27, 2015 / 8:54 pm

    Great gifts! I just got my boyfriend a little keychain that says “love you more” on it 🙂

    • January 28, 2015 / 6:16 am

      awww thats so romantic and cute am sure he will love it

    My husband and I don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day, but you have a bunch of really great gift ideas here. I especially like the set of three sleep masks – too funny! (And for me, diamonds are always a welcomed gift!)

    • January 28, 2015 / 6:16 am

      hahaha hun diamonds are welcome here too and yes these three masks are just hilarious i love them

  20. January 27, 2015 / 6:19 pm

    Wow, this is a whole range of gifts! My hubby and I don’t exchange but it’s still fun to read about all the choices!

    • January 28, 2015 / 6:15 am

      Maybe this year you could grab him something just as a surprise and see what happens

  21. January 27, 2015 / 3:04 pm

    Great roundup and ideas!! Thank you for sharing!

  22. January 27, 2015 / 2:31 pm

    For me as long as he puts some though into the gift i’m good. Although you can never go wrong with jewelry right?

    • January 28, 2015 / 6:15 am

      Definitely never go wrong with jewellry

  23. January 27, 2015 / 12:34 pm

    Oh my gosh, totally miss the nostalgia of hand-written everything, too! Love those friendship bracelets you featured. One year I got my grandmother one for her birthday, and it turned out almost every woman in my family had it personalized differently! Mom, grandma, sister, etc.- they are great quality and can be worn as an easy everyday accessory 🙂

    • January 28, 2015 / 6:14 am

      Personalised products go a long way dont they? I having a nostalgia just thinking about hand written letters

  24. January 27, 2015 / 9:45 am

    These are such great Valentine’s gift ideas! We’ve done all sorts from romantic restaurants to dinner at home to weekends away. Last year I had a gorgeous bunch of roses and a card with yummy heart shaped chocolates waiting for me when I got home. He’s told me to clear my diary this year so I guess we’ll see!

      Go check out their website they are only £3.99

  31. January 26, 2015 / 10:15 pm

    I couldn’t agree more on the cooking-in date. Especially when you do it together! It’s more intimate and gives you the chance to make more memories. I am already looking forward to my flowers and chocolates on Valentine’s Day. I hope you enjoy yours too!

    • January 28, 2015 / 6:12 am

      Absolutely, I think we aim to make the best memories possible. I hope you enjoy yours too

  33. January 26, 2015 / 6:47 pm

    Those eyemasks are hysterical! I love them! Thanks for sharing! My husband and I usually go out to dinner and watch a movie-we keep it low key, but he always buys me flowers. 🙂

    • January 28, 2015 / 6:11 am

      Aint they just, cracked me up. I love watching movies on V-day and just snuggling up

  34. January 26, 2015 / 6:36 pm

    Great gift ideas. For us, it’s a low-key holiday just spent in togetherness. 🙂

    • January 28, 2015 / 6:10 am

      Thanks hun, dont think i have ever had a valentines day holiday but would be cool though

  35. January 26, 2015 / 5:31 pm

    I love Valentine’s Day but my boyfriend and I don’t do much for it. We go to a nice dinner and just hangout together!
