1. Flowers


Without a doubt, I can tell you that every gender loves the thoughtfulness of flowers. I know that roses are the first choice on this day, but any flower works. Try even buying them in their favourite colour!


2. Chocolate

Did you know that cocoa beans were used as currency in the ancient times of Mayan and Aztec cultures? What would be a better gift than the sweet taste of melting chocolate and a little bit of history?


3. A Handwritten Love Letter

From my own personal experience, receiving and giving handwritten letters creates such a great feeling. It displays your love by putting time and effort into showing how much you care about your own words rather than a store-bought card.


4. Gift Basket

If you feel like being extra generous by putting together your lover’s favourite things, then turning them into a gift basket can be an amazing option and a creative way to show off your decorating skills!


5. Clothes

The best part about buying someone’s clothing is seeing them wearing it. If you have always wanted to see the person you love, something they might not pick first, here’s your chance to introduce them to a new style! Even if they end up not liking it, it’s the thought that counts.


6. Massages

Sometimes the best gift is the gift of relaxation. Both of you deserve a day to get those knots out and enjoy a nice massage. Valentine’s Day is all about love and no worries.


7. Concert/Game Tickets
