How to be a hero with unique Valentine’s gifts for her
Whether you’re looking for a gift for your girlfriend, or something for your wife, you want to find a gift that’s romantic, without being too cheesy. You’ve already organised a candlelit dinner, and a bouquet of flowers delivered to her door, but there’s still the problem of finding her a gift that will express your innermost feelings.
Personalised jewellery – Females have been adorning themselves with jewellery for centuries and this is always a good option, especially if you add a spot of personalisation. Find a pendant, bracelet, earrings or ring that compliments her current collection and add an engraving to lift your gift out of the generic and into the exclusive.
A handwritten love letter – When was the last time you wrote a love letter to your sweetheart? Have you ever written her one at all? Expressing your feelings on paper is a great way to show her how much you care. And it’s a gift that she’ll be able to keep for a lifetime, and one that will always remind her of your love.
Sensual lingerie – We’re talking about silk, satin and lace here, not leather or skin-tight PVC. A Valentine’s gift of lingerie should be for her pleasure not yours. There are a number of different materials that feel good against the skin and picking the right one will make her feel really special.
Fashion accessories – Ladies love to accessorise, with handbags, gloves, scarves, belts and shoes. If you know there’s been something she’s been longing to buy herself but never quite got round to it then you splash the cash and give her a gift you know she wants.
Unique Valentine’s gifts for the man in your life
How to say I love you in a way that your husband or boyfriend will appreciate and not think too cliched can be difficult. Everything you look at is either pink and flowery or covered in hearts and cuddly cupids. Look hard enough and you’ll find gifts more manly, but let’s help with a few suggestions.
A few bottles of his favourite tipple – Why not get together a collection of his favourite tipples, mixing and matching specialist ales and beers? He’ll be so thrilled with this Valentine’s gift that he might cut down on the number of times he pops out to the pub with his mates.
Find the way to his heart via his stomach – There aren’t many men who don’t love their food, and don’t they say that the way to man’s heart is through his stomach? Take him out to dinner at his favourite restaurant, order in a hamper filled with delicious treats or cook him a slap up meal using his favourite ingredients, and you’ll earn lots of extra brownie points.
Does he enjoy a good laugh? – Having a laugh on Valentine’s Day should make a nice change, and you can enjoy the comical experience together by buying a couple of tickets to a comedy show. Take a look online and see if any comedians are visiting your area in the near future.
Keep his feet warm with an unusual pair of socks – Socks have a bit of a bad reputation when it comes to them being given as gifts. It can however, be one of the most useful gifts you can give your partner. Find a pair that fits his personality rather than a boring brown pair or two. If he loves football then buy him a pair with his favourite team emblazoned on them. If he loves dogs then socks covered in paw prints would be perfect. Socks come in some many different colours and styles so you’re bound to find one to suit his taste.
A handmade Valentine’s gift will be truly unique
If you’re tired of braving the frenzy in the local town centre you should consider a handmade gift for your loved one. You can have a go at creating something with your own two hands but there are plenty of options provided by artisans who know their craft. Take a look at Etsy for example, and you get to choose from thousands of hand crafted Valentine’s gifts from around the globe. Shopping on the internet has made finding unique and unusual gifts far easier. You don’t have to take a long and expensive trip to an exotic location. Your gift shopping can be done from the comfort of your living room. Place the order online and your gift will be with you in just a few days, or weeks at the most.
Shop bought gifts for Valentine’s Day are good but they tend to be a bit impersonal and even downright cheesy. Handmade gifts made by a craftsman or woman are a much better option. You’ll also be showing your partner that you cared enough to go out of your way to find the perfect gift. Anyone can nip to the local store and pick something at random, but where’s the thought in that?
Go the extra mile with your choice of Valentine’s gift, and you’ll be reaping the rewards until next year.
