Valentine’s Day Gift Guide: Get them something they really want
Bored of the same slew of Valentine’s Day choccies and flowers? Looking to go a little more off-piste with your gift choices this year? We’ve got 10 gift ideas that are sure to delight your Valentine’s Day crush.
1) Takeaway Dice
We can hear you now. “A dice? With some pictures of food on? Great, strong start.” But come with us on this journey. It’s not the dice that’s the gift, it’s the freedom. No longer will you and your S/O get caught in an endless cycle of “What do you want for dinner?” “Well I don’t know, what do you want?” And so on and so forth into infinity.
Now, just give the Takeaway Dice a quick roll and you’ll be giddy with excitement, as a delicious pizza, hearty curry or smorgasbord of different Chinese dishes hurry their way across town to you stress free.
2) Unicorn Poo Bath Bombs
Relaxation, the greatest gift of all.
Okay, so maybe we’re being too literal, there’s 8 more entries to go on this list after all. Still, it can’t be denied that some guilt free time to do absolutely nothing is pretty sweet. Sweeter still with these multicoloured Unicorn Poo Bath Bombs.
So if you think the best gift you can give is carte blanche for that special someone to simply run a hot bath, and take a spell away from the day to day hustle and bustle, then the Unicorn Poo Bath Bombs are a fantastic way to say it with an added splash of colour.
3) Beard Buddy Shaping Tool
Beards seemed to make a comeback in the late 2000’s and early 2010’s, and for now, they’re here to stay. Still, there’s a fine line between looking like Jason Momoa, and looking like you spent 26 years trapped in Jumanji.

So if you’re the proud owner of 1 x bearded boyfriend, then the Beard Buddy Shaping Tool is the perfect gift for him (but also kind of for you). A versatile and easy to use tool that offers 8 different functions for any well-groomed gentleman.
4) G&Tea Cocktail Set
Romantic and classy, afternoon tea is a sure fire winner when it comes to a Valentine's Day date idea. But hear us out, what if there was more gin involved?
The G&Tea Cocktail Set includes 1 x Teapot, 1 x Filter Basket and 2 x G&Tea Teacups. Simply pour your gin and tonic mix into the pot, and add your choice of fruit or botanicals to the filter basket for a satisfying infusion of flavour.
Thinking this would be great for Galentines Day instead? You can get extra Teacups too.
5) 100 Whiskies Scratch Off Bucket List Poster
Gin not your thing? Or maybe you know a whisky (or whiskey) lover you’re looking to treat this Valentine’s Day. The problem with whisky enthusiasts is knowing which of the dozens of whisky types they actually like.
That’s where the 100 Whiskies Scratch Off Bucket List Poster comes in handy. Not just a thoughtful gift, but as more and more squares are scratched away, you can build a nice flavour profile of what whets your whisky loving partner's whistle.
6) Whisky Bath Bombs
Staying in the whisky isle for now, everything we said about the Unicorn Poo Bath Bombs applies here, we’re just switching up the audience a bit.
If you know someone who’s more sandalwood than shimmer, a bit more Rob Roy than rainbows, then the Whisky Bath Bombs are sure to go down a treat. The perfect pairing for...well, an actual glass whisky.
7) Our Life Story Journal
The Our Life Story Journal by SUCK UK is a smart and sleek hardback book that only truly comes alive once you start populating it with your own personal adventures.
Whether you stuff this journal with a glut of bits and bobs from a single event, or if you slowly fill each page over the course of many years, you’re sure to end up with a sentimental and unique keepsake.
Pre-fill the pages with an assortment of photos and mementos before presenting it, for a gift that’s sure to surprise and enchant!
8) Personalised 'Prosecco O'Clock' Bottle of Prosecco
Prosecco is always sure to delight, but there’s something about handing that bottle over that can feel a little impersonal.
So if you think Prosecco would be the perfect gift this Valentine’s Day, but want to make more of a fanfare of it, then the Personalised 'Prosecco O'Clock' Bottle of Prosecco is the perfect way to do so. Add your own personalised text (up to 3 lines) to the label, and name-check your sweetheart while also adding a touching message.
9) The Husband/The Wife: A Ladybird Personalised Book
Valentine’s Day is often skewed towards conventional displays of affection, but maybe you’re not looking to woo you beloved in the traditional sense. Instead, maybe you’re just looking to make them laugh.
‘The Husband’ and ‘The Wife’ are two hilarious ‘How it works’ books from Ladybird. These colourful, tongue-in-cheek books are written in simple language and have a vintage feel that brings to mind the children’s books that inspired them. It’s everything you need to know about the modern spouse.
You can even personalise your copy with a name on the cover and a message on the title page.
10) 100 Box Sets Scratch Off Bucket List Poster
If you’re in a new couple, there’s this electricity in the air. It’s exciting and mysterious, as you slowly get to learn more about each other. Which is all well and good, but what’s even more amazing is when you both get to admit what you really want is to stay in all weekend, and binge your favourite box set for the millionth time. There’s nothing quite like it.
Celebrate the night in with the 100 Box Sets Scratch Off Bucket List Poster. As you watch each of these iconic shows, scratch off the matching square to reveal a colourful illustration. It’s the perfect excuse to crack open those fancy snacks you’ve been saving and get comfy on the sofa with your very favourite person.
So have we done it? Convinced you to leave the sickly candy on the supermarket shelf, and the flowers where they belong (in a flower bed)? If there’s nothing here that’s quite right for your Valentine, then fear not, as this is just a taster of what’s on offer.
