Valentine’s Day 2022: Top 30 Valentine’s Gift ideas

Don't panic about Valentine's Day this year. Here's your guide to buying romantic gifts, top stores to buy from and winning at Valentine's Day.

Come every 14 February, couples wonder if their other half is planning everything and singles loudly express their distaste for the “Hallmark holiday”. Let’s not even get started on people who just started dating and now have to navigate a relationship land mine with more precision than a bomb disposal squad.

It doesn’t have to be that stressful. Just do whatever makes you and your partner happy – and if you’re single, celebrate yourself! Whether you want to go nuts with a hot air balloon ride and wine or just want to spend the night in with pizza (and probably still with wine), Valentine’s Day can be whatever you want it to be.

How to choose a Valentine’s Day gift

Choosing a Valentine’s Day gift is not rocket science. Use a few key factors to help you navigate around gift-buying pitfalls and you can’t go wrong.

How long have you been dating for?

I’m going to come right out and say this: buying expensive and overly romantic gifts for someone you just started dating is not cute – it’s creepy. It puts unnecessary pressure on the relationship, which you can be sure won’t be around for much longer. A more relationship-age appropriate gift might be buying tickets you can both use to an upcoming gig or festival, or even just treating them to dinner.

Personality, personality, personality

Hopefully, if you have been dating for a while, you have some idea of their personality and what makes them tick. Get all psychological on them and find the why of how they spend their time. Do they exercise a lot? It could be because they love getting physical or the outdoors. They may be high achievers in all things (including their body) or place a high value on image. Asking the why will help you unlock personality ticks and find the perfect gift.

Age matters, but not as much as you think

What’s more important is the life stage they’re at. Are they at university? Working full-time? About to welcome their first child – or grandchild? Numerical age isn’t as important as life stage. And if you think it’s a good idea to get a woman over 30 years old skin repair products, you have another thing coming. That is a terrible idea and you need to rethink your gift-buying game.

Hobbies, or something they want to try but haven’t

Hobbies are an easy and obvious place to scrape ideas from. A snowboarder will never say no to a new pair of goggles and a budding MasterChef will love the gourmet ingredients you got them. But if you want to go a step further, what’s the one thing they want to do but haven’t yet?
