Arghhh, such a conundrum, you only just managed to work out what to get your favourite person for Christmas and suddenly Valentines Day is upon us…! Never fear, I’m here to help!
Okay so, strictly speaking the husband and I don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day, but I know that most people do and it’s always nice to treat that special person in your life – so here are my top Valentines gift picks or, you know, gifts just because you love them…
For him –
::Carry-on Cocktail Kit – $28
Make his journey that bit better with the ingredients to make a classic Old Fashioned (all TSA compliant).
::RayBans – $140
What guy doesn’t look great in a classic pair of sunglasses
::Mug – $15
Because it doesn’t hurt to remind him just how lucky he is.
::Scratch Map – $30
Document all your adventures together by scratching off the countries and regions as you travel.
::Pocket Projector – $150
For the guy with all the gadgets – the power of projection in his pocket.
::Ice cube tray – $7
On the rocks never looked so stylish.
Bonus: pair it with his favourite bourbon or single malt (Ardberg for the husband).
::Sick in the head – Judd Apatow – $12
A collection of intimate, hilarious conversations with some of the biggest names in comedy – for anyone that likes a giggle.
::Bacon chocolate – $8
No explanation needed, surely.
For her –
::Subscription – from $50
So many great subscription boxes out there at the moment that you can easily tailor to her tastes and preferences (sporty, beauty, animal lover, clothes etc. etc.) But for me, it’s this wine subscription that’s the winner.
::Kindle – from $119
This is kinda on here because I need a new Kindle… but regardless, they make for a fantastic gift. Bonus: pair it with this stylish rose gold case.
::Nespresso Inissia – $100
I’m not allowed a Nespresso machine because my coffee consumption goes up by approximately 1000% whenever there’s one in the vicinity. But for those who can caffeinate responsibly, this is sure to be appreciated.
::Leopard keychain – $33
She’ll never lose her keys in her handbag again, as large as it is stylish.
::Cheers bottle opener – $12
I just want it. That is all.
::Photo printer – $150
I love the idea of the Instax and Polaroid cameras but, let’s face it, you’d almost never have it on you when you needed it! Now you can print your phone pics in the same way.
::Earrings – $16
Dainty and oh so romantically beautiful, gold dipped rose quartz earrings from Etsy.
::Adult coloring book – $15
Because swearing can be beautiful too.
What will you be buying your love this year?
