6 Sentimental and Truly Thoughtful Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas

As the years fly by, even a true romantic can get stuck for ideas when it comes to the biggest love fest of the year. These tender Valentine’s Day gift ideas are sure to keep your other half on their toes.

Book A Surprise Getaway

Always a winner, you can never go wrong with a romantic hotel break for two. Time is the best present money can buy in today’s fast-paced society, and a relaxing getaway is the perfect gift for those who are busy with the rush of everyday life. A real treat, spend some quality time alone by booking a couples spa package and fancy evening meal. To really make the most of it, don’t forget to put in place a social media ban for the duration of the weekend!

Post A Handwritten Love Note

Receiving something by post (other than bills) is a rare novelty these days. In an age where smartphones and social media has taken over, a handwritten love note is an intimate and genuine gesture. There’s no need to overthink things or aspire to be a professional wordsmith, we’re not aiming for a Shakespeare sonnet here! A simple list of all the things you love about your other half will suffice.

Make A Thoughtful Keepsake

Nothing says ‘I love you’ like a homemade gift. Why not make a precious photo collage or memory book of your years together? All these special keepsakes are sure to bring a smile to their face, and this is something they will look back on fondly for years to come.

Renew Your Wedding Vows

Maybe you have a special anniversary year approaching or never got to have the wedding of your dreams, and you would now like to renew your vows in front of your children. Pop the question (again) this Valentine’s Day and begin planning your second wedding for late 2017 or early next year. It can be a large celebration of your love or a more intimate family affair. Either way, there are plenty of wedding venues that provide stunning civil ceremony rooms to host your blessing. What an exciting time!

Plan An Epic Scavenger Hunt

Who says you have to book a trip away to be wined and dined? This will require meticulous planning and initiative, but the look on your partner’s face will be priceless at the very end. Begin by ensuring their diary is kept completely free on your day of choice and plan a series of mini surprises along the trail.

Begin by booking them in for a pamper session such as a hair appointment or manicure. Next, lead them to a local jewellery store where a very special gift is waiting for them and finish with a grand finale of afternoon tea for two. Throw out the rule book and use your imagination to get creative.

Buy Something Practical

Not every couple buys into the Valentine’s Day madness of giving grand gestures or shouting their feelings from the rooftops – and that’s okay too. A simple but practical token can also speak volumes and show you care. Has your other half recently hinted about a gift they may like? This is the perfect opportunity to surprise them with something useful such as new gym gear or beauty products.
