Valentine's Day Gift Ideas for Him & Her

Valentine's day is this weekend and if you're someone who needs to be prepared for this celebration of romance then here are a few quick gift ideas to give the one you love.

Cucumber Mug - £6.00

In my opinion you can never go wrong with a mug. Unless the person you're giving it to has too many mugs. Like me. But I'd still be thrilled if I received one and even more so if it had a bad pun like this one from Paperchase. Make this gift more special by buying your loved one's favourite tea blend, coffee or hot chocolate with some marshmallows, biscuits or chocolates.

I'm the type of person who would buy this for myself, if I'm honest, because it's super cute! I think this would be a great Valentine's day present for someone who you've been with for a few years and have tired out all other loving ideas from past years.

How could I not include chocolate in this list? But because it's a special day don't just buy any old chocolates - get really good quality ones! Somehow a 57p chocolate bar doesn't say 'I love you' as much as £12 boxed heart shaped chocolates from a top-end brand.

For something a bit more personal and special - get a necklace! Z for Accessorize has some of the best jewellery I've seen and you won't hurt your bank account either. If you and your lover are still new to each other and you don't want to splash out too much but still want to give them something special then this is a great choice.

Some men have no knowledge on skin care so if you get them skin care products they will feel like they are receiving something that will be worthwhile. Maybe you have even noticed that their skin isn't the best so it will actually help them.

Beauty products in a box like this feels a lot more special than buying the products and wrapping them up yourselves for some reason. This gives them a chance to have a few good quality products and feel really good whilst using them - knowing that their lover had bought them.

And finally, another product that I think you can never go wrong with... in theory at least. Candles are great because they can make someone feel like they should have their own relaxation time and are more likely to do so if they receive a candle (at least I feel that way anyway). However, make sure the scent isn't something they wouldn't like or that's too strong.

To all the people celebrating Valentine's day - have a good time and I hope these gift ideas have helped you in that last minute rush! I certainly know that I will enjoy my date with my Laptop...
