the gifts you need to give this Valentines…

this post is SO 2018, check out our 2019 update here.

February 14th is shortly approaching, which means it’s that time of the year where the shops are filled with big red hearts and boxes of chocolates galore. Luckily, whether you’re a little stuck with gift ideas for your loved one, you and the girls are having a ‘Galentines Day’, or you just want to treat yourself, I am here to help you out with your presents this year! You can never go wrong with jewellery…right?!

A message from the heart…

I mean, not everyone is all about the cute notes and thoughtful words, it’s a bit of a Marmite thing, but for those who do love a little message from the heart, what says ‘I love you’ more than a small message engraved on a pendant? Personalised items always look as if more thought has been put into the gift, so you’re bound to rack in those brownie points with an engravable pendant. So now that I’ve done half the job for you, it’s time to think of a loving message up to 30 characters long…

Skip a heartbeat…

Is your partner a true romantic? Jewellery with heart designs may be the route to go down for you. A personal favourite of mine are these gorgeous Rose Gold Frosted Heart Studs.

9ct Rose Gold Frosted Heart Studs – £23

There is just something different about the shape of the heart, and rose gold is particularly popular at the moment. If they don’t have their ears pierced, but you’d like to stick to the rose gold heart theme, how about a matching bracelet and necklace duo? The perfect ‘Galentines’ gift if you ask me! These are sterling silver rose gold dipped, so they are a little more purse-friendly if you are still feeling the hit from Christmas (seriously though, who isn’t?!).

Rose Gold Dipped Sterling Silver Heart Pendant on Chain – £5.07

Valentine’s Day sorted forever?!

If you are a little more…lazy, when it comes to gift buying, I have the best solution for you. How about buying a charm bracelet as a gift for Valentines Day? A charm can then be gifted on every special occasion, meaning you won’t have to sit around for hours thinking of what to buy your special someone again (well, aside from deciding which charm to give them).

Sterling Silver Birthstone and Initial Charm Bracelet – £25

For the ‘classic’ lover…

For those who prefer a more, vintage and classic style of jewellery, a locket will probably go down a treat. With plenty of shapes and sizes to choose from, there is bound to be one which is suited to the special person in your life. Not to mention, they can pop a picture of you in there and keep you close at all times – cute or cringe, you decide!

For Him

Girls, we all know how impossible boys are to buy for, but don’t worry, I’ve got your back. For the working man, I recommend these Sterling Silver Swivel Back Letter Cufflinks.

Sterling Silver Letter Swivel Back Cufflinks – from £15.65

You can buy one letter for your partners forename, and one for his surname. It’s a personalised gift, but a little further from the cheesy side, and they are something which can be used for a long time.
If you were after something which is a little more personal to the both of you, how does a signet ring with both of your initials lightly engraved on sound? This is an amazing idea for those of you who are perhaps on a smaller budget, and just want to purchase a meaningful gift for your other half that will remind them of you.

Sterling Silver Engravable Signet Ring – from £18

For those who love a pamper…

I am one of those people who loves to ‘do things’ and I am definitely one for a pamper session. London Grace is a gorgeous nail salon with branches all over London, offering treatments from only £10. Not only this, but you can also get yourself a drink at the same time, for a very reasonable price might I add. If you are buying for your special someone who loves a bit of me-time, a voucher for London Grace is a perfect idea, not to mention a fabulous idea for a Galentine’s treat!

Gift Packages from £25

How About A Winter Warmer?

Who doesn’t love a warm cuppa after a long day at work? For a gift idea which is a little different from the stereotypical chocolates and flowers, Pact Coffee offer a bundle of five teas, containing some of the world’s finest teas, plus a loose tea infuser. If you are buying for someone who has the winter blues, or just happens to adore tea, this is a thoughtful gift that is bound to put a smile on their face.

Five Tea Bundle – £35

Some not-so-cheeky chocolate…

Lastly, if you’re buying for a chocolate lover this Valentines, and don’t want to give the conventional supermarket box, Lucocoa Chocolate is a fantastic choice. They are made from bean to bar in London, using no refined sugar or artificial sweeteners, the bars are made with coconut sugar instead. This little set contains six mini bars, so you can trial all the flavours. Also, six is the perfect number for sharing between two…

Lucocoa Full Set of Chocolate Bars – £12

So whether your partner loves jewellery and is into more classic pieces, or likes to keep up with the trends, or whether they love a bit of a pamper, there is something for everyone to keep you in their good books this year.
