Be my video-valentine: Our Valentine’s Day 2021 Gift Guide
It's fair to say that Valentine's Day 2021 might be a little different when compared to last year. So if you've got a video date with a potential valentine coming up, sending them a token of your affection could be just the ice-breaker you need.
It's not all about remote romancing though: we've been sure to include some gifts that are perfect for couples who might have a candle-lit dinner at home planned too. That, or maybe an all day pyjamas-wearing movie marathon kind of day. We respect your chosen Valentine's vibe.
1) Heated Huggable Avocado
Nothing says “daytime date” more than going out for brunch. So what better way to capture some of that magic (we’ve been through 2020, going out for brunch absolutely would be/is magic) than with the undisputed king of brunch, the Avocado.
This huggable friend isn’t just a cute plush, but is in fact a waterless hot water bottle, filled with natural grains and lavender. So while you might not be able to see your date in person this Valentine’s Day, you can still send them the gift of a warm hug.
2) Scratch Off Bucket List Poster - 100 Movies
Movie night, that most classic of dates. With the wonders of technology - things like screen sharing, watch parties, or simply being on a video call while you watch the same film - you can bet there'll still be loads of couples settling in with a bowl of popcorn this Valentine’s Day.
So if you reckon you and your other half are undisputed, bona fide film buffs, then maybe together you can scratch off every square on the 100 Movies Scratch Off Bucket List Poster.
3) Personalised Sweet Jars
We can’t think of a better way to let some know that you're sweet on them than, well, sweets.
These Personalised Sweet Jars come in two saccharine sweet designs: the red “I Chews You” version or the pink “You’re so Sweet” variety. Filled to the brim with Swizzles Matlow sweets, all that’s really missing is that extra personal touch, so be sure to add your valentine’s name to the label.
4) Umbra Anigram Ring Holder Copper - 3 Pack
Buying jewellery for a significant other is always a nice gesture, but what if they’ve already got drawers and dressers just overflowing with baubles and trinkets? Maybe a little help organising all their finery is in order.
The Umbra Anigram Ring Holder Copper - 3 Pack includes three adorable animal helpers (a rabbit, an elephant and a deer), who are just waiting to make themselves at home on those aforementioned drawers and dressers.
5) Personalised Geometric Heart Hug Mug
Had to replace your normal coffee date with a video call? It sucks, but there’s still room for romance when you’re meeting remotely. Chatting into the wee hours with a nice hot drink can be almost as cosy as the real thing, so why not let your Valentine know that you’re looking forward to your next remote rendezvous by sending them a personalised mug.
The Personalised Geometric Heart Hug Mug is made from bone china and can be made unique with a message and a name.
6) Rosé Wine Bath Bombs
It’s not just remote couples who’ve had to adjust. As much as living with their significant other has been a huge comfort for many people over the last year, there is such a thing as needing some “you time.” So give the gift of “them time” with these Rosé Wine Bath Bombs: just run your valentine a bath and let them unwind for a spell.
The Rosé Wine Bath Bombs come as a pack of 10 and release a pink glitter and gentle scent as they fizz and dissolve away.
7) Chilli & Bubbles Valentine’s Trinket Box
We’ll be honest with you, this hasn’t really got anything to do with remote dates, or even dating in general, we just think it's a super cute gift that’ll melt the hearts of even the most stoic of valentines.
The Chilli & Bubbles Valentine’s Trinket Box can be personalised with your own unique message, which appears around the outside edge of the box itself.
8) Warmies Heatable Soft Toy - Blue Dragon
Sometimes you can’t beat sending the object of your affection a cute and cuddly plush. The teddy bear has been a Valentine’s Day mainstay for years and years for good reason.
Still, there’s a fine line between “classic” and “boring,” so zhuzh things up by swapping that bear for this bold Blue Dragon. As every bit as cute and cuddly as traditional plush toys, this adorable fantasy friend has also has something in common with our avocado way back up at #1 - filled with natural grains, just pop them in the microwave for a spell and they’ll act as a waterless hot water bottle.
9) Personalised Mr & Mrs Wine Glass Set
A swanky meal out on the town out of the question? There’s no reason that Valentine’s Day at home can’t be just as fancy.
The Personalised Mr & Mrs Wine Glasses can be emblazoned with the surname of your choice, making the presentation of your dinnertime tipple just that little bit extra. Plus, they'll come to you presented in a silk lined gift box.
10) Dating: A Ladybird Personalised Book
Traditional dating might not be on the books currently, but after you’ve read Dating: A Ladybird Personalised Book, you could find yourself thinking that maybe it's not such a bad thing.
Personalise with the name of your valentine, send it to them and then have a proper laugh together: at least your dates aren’t like the ones in this book (at least, we hope not).
We hope that some of these gifts will help add a little something extra to your Valentine's Day digital dates. Head over to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and keep you eyes peeled, as really soon, we'll be looking at even more ways to make a video Valentine's Day just that little bit more special.Barware, Couples, Film, Gift Guide, Gifts, Gifts For Her, Gifts For Him, List, Valentine's Day
