Alternative Valentine’s Gifts

Roses are red, violets are blue, Valentine’s Day is on its way and I’ve got some gift ideas for you! Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, but don’t panic I’ve got you covered. This year we’re stepping away from the conventional gifts and opting for something a little
less ordinary. So, let’s swap the standard flowers, chocolates and perfume – wonderful as they are – for something a little more personal and totally out of this world. Below I’ve shared with you a selection of alternative gift ideas that I think will not
only make your other half smile, but will surely make Valentine’s Day a day to remember.

You Light Up My Life
Neon lights and light boxes are still having a moment, and what’s not to love? They’re personal, they come in handy, they’re super cute and can last for years to come – now that’s a terrific present! Plus, if you’re planning on popping the question, opt for the light box and surprise the love
of your life with the words ‘Marry Me’ when they open it.


You’re My Bag And Chain

If the lady (or gent) in your life loves a good accessory, look no further than these super-cool options. Plus, if you’re wanting to surprise your Valentine with a weekend getaway, then this is the perfect gift that’ll have them guessing!

Hey Good Looking…
Nothing says “I love you” than a pampering session, and inside the Bridges there’s options for both guys and girls. For the special guy in your life there’s Kamran’s Barbers, where they offer both haircuts and hot towel shaves. For the ladies there’s the recently
opened Glamour Forever, which offers everything from hair services to beauty treatments. Go one step further and take your loved one out for a romantic meal afterwards.

The Food Of Love
Vouchers and gift cards are seriously underrated. If you and your other half is obsessed with something, then there’s nothing wrong with getting more of it. Plus, I think nowadays people genuinely appreciate vouchers more. Any caffeine lover would be over the moon
with a Starbucks voucher (I know I would) and whenever I mention Greggs my partner’s eyes light up, so I know I’d get seriously girlfriend points if I got him one of those.

You Complete Me
You, or your partner sentimental at heart? Then you simply can’t go wrong with a personalised gift. Impress your loved on with a ‘You Complete Me’ style puzzle that you can showcase in your home. Don’t live together yet? Don’t fret, simply use this gift to tell
your partner that it’s going to happen one day (and you can’t wait!)
