10 Unique Valentine’s Gift Ideas
The thing about Valentine’s Day is that it can actually be a bit of a minefield. You fretted about what to get your partner for Christmas just two months earlier, and now you have to go through the whole charade again. You want to get them a surprise gift they’ll really love, but you literally have no idea what to get them. Moreover, you want to get them something special, but your bank balance still hasn’t recovered from Christmas.
The worst thing you could do on Valentine’s Day, though, is freeze up and either get your partner nothing at all, or something really obvious so that it looks as though you’ve put in zero effort. If time is ticking down and you still haven’t bought anything, let’s take a look at 10 unique Valentine’s gift ideas.
Personalised Name Mug
Everyone loves a cup of tea or coffee in the morning, but it always feels extra special when we’re drinking it out of our very own personalised name mug.
And it feels even more special when said personalised name mug was given us by the person we love on Valentine’s Day.
So why not make your lover smile with a cute mug that carries a very romantic message?
Sculpt Your Own Boyfriend Or Girlfriend
Perhaps your partner has a really great sense of humour. As such, you want to get her or him something ironically funny that they’ll appreciate.
Sculpt Your Own Boyfriend/Girlfriend is smart little toy-kit gift that is actually a dig at yourself and your partner. You know you’re not perfect, but you also know that your partners standards are always bit too high; they literally find fault with everything you do!
So, why not give them the chance to sculpt their own partner from scratch? That way they’ll be totally perfect!
Most of us love a bit of art even if we say we’re not into art. You don’t have to buy your partner a complex Picasso or a slice of modern art that nobody understands. Instead, you could buy them a print that everyone gets.
Just take a walk into your local home store and you’ll see an array of contemporary fine art prints. These include framed life-affirming quotes, black and white time lapse photographs, and simple coffee art prints. They’re inexpensive and they add a touch of colour to your home.
Love Photo Frame
This would make a fab Valentine’s Day gift any year. A Love Photo Frame is essentially a collage of your best memories together that you hang on your wall. It’s cute, thoughtful and absolutely screams “I love you.”
With a gift like this, it might be a great idea to surprise your partner by hanging it up on the wall before they’ve got up for breakfast.
Perhaps your partner is a little bit quirky, a little bit different. Perhaps they prefer a box of whiskey miniatures to a box of chocolates.
And perhaps they’d rather prefer that you showered them with a cactus as opposed to a boring old bunch of roses.
A cactus is a surprise gift idea that works for either sex. Although it’s kinda manly, girls love them too. There are many different varieties, and they’re really easy to water. They add a touch of something different to your home, and are certainly not just for Valentine’s Day.
United States Beer Tasting Map
This one is a gift for girls to buy their men. If your guy loves his beer, there’s every chance that he’ll love this unique gift that helps him to keep track of where his beer is coming from.
Indeed, real ale is experiencing a surge in popularity at the moment. Men are getting their beer from all around the world, from America to Belgium. Although you might not get it at all when your partner starts discussing the complexities of a German beer and how much better it is than a French beer, it’s now his favourite topic of conversation.
A (Fake) Mounted Animal’s Head
All girls love stuffed cuddly toys. Every girl in the world had a favourite teddy bear who was their best friend in the whole wide world when they were a little girl. And we may be adults now, but stuffed toys still melt our hearts.
But if you’re looking to get your partner something a little bit different this Valentine’s Day, why not think outside the box and get them a fake mounted animal’s head instead? It could be a moose, a bull, a tiger and so on. They’re inexpensive and they add a touch of class to your walls.
Brew Your Own Beer Kit
Champagne has long been the romantic drink of choice for couples all around the world, but in 2016 your man doesn’t drink it anymore; instead, he drinks beer – and probably lots of it!
Beer has now replaced bubbly in his world, but rather than simply buying him a few bottles from the supermarket, how about getting really creative by getting him his very own beer starter kit instead? This way, he’ll be able to brew his own beer!
A Lovers’ Bungee Jump
Providing you’re both the adventurous type, you won’t be able to go wrong if you get you both a Lover’s Leap Bungee Jump surprise gift.
Naturally, leaping off a very great height is not the faint-hearted, so you need to make sure that your partner will be up for this before you buy it. But there will be an extra special gift at the bottom that can calm both your nerves – a bottle of bubbly!
Karma Sutra Playing Cards
If you and your husband both still love each other and find one another desirable, you’ll have lots of fun with the Karma Sutra Playing Cards gift.
This card game takes the concept of snap to a whole other level. It’s like a regular card game, but with extra special rewards. Strictly for married couples only, it’s fun, entertaining and can bring you and your partner closer together this Valentine’s Day.
