The first month of the year is coming to an end already, and you know what that means.. Valentines Day. Now, I personally think that we should all just show each other how much we love one another year round, but I get that Valentines is a nice way to make someone feel extra special.
I also think that Valentines Day is a day that we can all use as an excuse (even though we don’t need one..) to give ourselves some love, and remind ourselves of how amazing and special we are.
I know that a lot of us search for ‘Valentines gifts for…’ when it comes to finding a Valentines Day gift for our special someone, so I’ve done this gift guide in categories with gifts I would buy for my other half and of course what I would like myself! Both will include unisex, personal, DIY and funny gifts from different price ranges! (*all images taken from the websites linked and do not belong to me)
A lot of these gift ideas are the same for both sexes in my opinion but everyone knows what they like and have a idea of what their friend, partner or special person likes.
Valentines Day ‘Guy’de’ (get it haha):
1 . Personalised Jewellery.
You can get each piece of jewellery here – the letter necklaces, the minimalist bar necklaces and the personalised birthstone bracelet here.
2 . Watch.
You can grab the first, black watch here, the white one here and the rose gold one here!
3 . USB Mix Tape.
This is a DIY one, but you can buy the cassette tape with the memory stick here and the personalised memory stick here! This is one of my favourite ones, because it requires so much thought, ans we all know that it’s the thought that counts!
4 . The Five Senses.
This one is personal to who you’re buying for, which is why I love this one!
5 . Makeup Vouchers.
This one doesn’t need a photo, because we all know what gift cards look like! If you have a makeup lover, they will love this.
6 . Memory frame/box/bottle.
You can get the frame here, the bottle here and the memory box here.
7 . Breakfast in bed with a surprise day out.
Here’s a pretty breakfast for the photo for this one, because the day out is personal to the person, pick something they’ll not expect you to have picked that you know they’ll love!
8 . A personal piece of art or an inside joke made into a gift.
You can grab the ‘things I love about you’ piece here, the photo collage here and the wooden planisphere here!
Girls Guide to Valentines:
1 . Watch.
The first watch here is more pricey than the others, but you can grab it here, the silver watch here and the pocket watch here!
2 . USB Mix tape.
This is exactly the same as the mix tape from the ‘Guy’de’ so I will just leave the link for the cassette tape and USB here and the personalised memory stick here!
3 . Favourite Sweets Hamper.
You can grab the post box sweets here, the haribo and marshmallow tree here and the wonka inspired chocolate box here!
4 . The Five Senses.
This is the same idea as the one above, but with slightly different items!
5 . A new game, with snacks for a game day/night.
I don’t feel like this one needs a photo, because everyone has different game preferences! It doesn’t even have to be a game night, it could be binge watching your favourite series or movies!
6 . Remember when box – with funny and sweet memories handwritten memories.
Very similar to the other memory box one, but this one is with handwritten memories inside, ideally write as many as you can to fill the box or book or page! You can get the poster here, the box here and the book here.
7 . Wallet keepsakes – a photo of you together or even a cute saying or inside joke you have!
You can get the silver card with a map (it comes in other colours) here, the gold card (also in other colours) here and the photo with tiny letter here! I personally love the tiny love letter and photo one the most, and think its perfect for everyone; including if you’re getting it for yourself, because why not send yourself a reminder of how lovely you are!
8 . Surprise day out.
I won’t include a photo for this gift either purely because it’s very personal to every person! It doesn’t have to be an expensive day out, it could be so simple, why not a surprise picnic at lunch? Or even more romantic, bring blankets and candles and have a candle lit picnic!
Well, those are my ideas for Valentines Day gifts that you can get yourself or that special someone in your life! And although these are categorised, I think that you can get these for anyone in your life. It doesn’t matter if you have that special someone yet or not, you might not want a special someone in your life right now; it’s your choice and Valentines is a great day to show yourself some self love!
I know these are all gifts that cost money, but they also don’t have to! You can always use this gift guide as inspiration for gifts that you can make with things you probably have around the house! (the remember when memories are an easy one to do, along with the mix tape!) If you DIY any of these gifts let me know how it goes in the comments below, I always love reading and replying to them!
So have an amazing weekend and Valentines Day for the 14th my lovelies!
