Unique and unusual gifts to treat your loved one this Valentine’s Day

Think outside the chocolate box this Valentine's day and give a gift to remember.

Valentine’s day is a day of love, romance and inevitable clichés. As great as chocolates and roses are, you might be looking to get something a bit quirkier this year. A gift to really impress her or a present to make him fall about laughing.

From luxurious experience days to silly personalised socks, we’ll take you through all the unusual gifts to wow your loved one this 14 February.

Experience days

Experience days are a sure-fire way into your partner’s heart. There is a huge range of options when it comes to experience day gifts, from the exhilarating to the tranquil.

Chill out with a spa day or get away from it all with a country retreat. Looking to stay closer to home? Get afternoon tea at The Shard or a fancy meal at a high-end restaurant.

If none of those sound like your cup of tea, you can always Zorb your way into their heart!

Personalised gifts

Whether you’re going for whacky or sweet, personalised gifts are a great and usually very affordable gift.

For the old romantics, you can choose from tons of different personalised gifts. From engraved jewellery to personalised photo frames.

Or, if you’re looking for a lighthearted gift, there are plenty of slightly silly personalised presents. From cheese boards with your names etched into it, to socks with your face printed all over them. Putting the new meaning in sole mate.

Food

Chocolates are good. Great in fact. But there’s a whole host of other delicacies you can get to treat your other half.

Keep the mood sweet with personalised cakes from Bakerdays. It has tons of impressive and humorous cakes on offer.

Valentine’s Day is meant to be a bit cheesy, so woo your lady or man with a box of artisan cheeses.

Or get an amazing, luxury hamper from Amazon, full of goodies like pâté and high-end biscuits.

Drink

Getting your partner a nice bottle of bubbly is usually a fail-safe way to win their affections.

Pink Valentine’s gin looks right at home on 14 February and can be swilled down with a tasty tonic.

If you’re looking for bubbles, you can get a personalised bottles of Prosecco or champers.

Is he or she always banging on about how much they like craft beer? Well let them have this one and buy a crate of the best indie ales, IPAs and lagers.

Gadgets and tech

Who said Cupid had to be old school? Set your partner’s pulse racing with an exciting gizmo.

Buy your other half a speaker so you can wind down with some romantic tunes.

Grab yourself a “selfie drone” so you and your Valentine can take some epic photos on your next holiday.

Or find them a nifty little gadget they can use in their day-to-day, a mini USB fridge they can attach to their laptop perhaps?
