Unique Valentine’s ideas and gifts (that you can enjoy, too!)

There are only two golden rules of a winning (and non-cheesy) Valentine’s Day gift: personalisation and thoughtfulness.

This Valentine’s Day, step away from the giant teddy bear and ostentatious candy hearts; instead, go personal. Choose a gift from the heart, rather than the biggest bouquet in the florist!

We’ve collated a list of unique, personalised, and beautiful Valentine’s Day gift ideas, including our exclusive Valentine’s Day popup dinner on the most romantic night of the year.

Personalised is key

Monogramming is all the rage, so why not order something practical your partner can use that is also stamped with their unique initials (or future initials; hint-hint!)

Some of our favourite monogramming ideas include:

  • Luxurious pillow cases
  • Throws and blankets
  • Chic pyjamas
  • Towels
  • Bags and purses

A romantic and intimate dinner

Haven’t yet planned anything special for Valentine’s Day? We’ve got the perfect gift!

A map poster of a special city

Whether it holds significance for them or the both of you, this is a lovely and unique idea that doubles as a cool piece of artwork in the home.

Perhaps the city where you met, the first place you visited on holiday together, or a dream city you both want to visit. Some great sites where you can explore cities all around the world include:

  • Grafomap
  • Mapiful
  • Mujumaps

A personal day

Whether it be at the spa, a styling service at a department store, or a day on the green, a personalised day – based entirely around your partner’s favourite pastime or passion – is a great gift idea.

Wine with a meaning!

This really creative idea not only shows how much you care, but can once again be enjoyed by the both of you!

Pick out a variety of wines from significant years gone by.

It might be the year you met, when you got married, had your first child, or can even look towards the future, to the year you’ll celebrate your 20th wedding anniversary. A truly memorable gift!
