Valentine’s day is when we treat the one we love whether that be cooking them a romantic meal or lavishing them with gifts it is a day to celebrate love. Maybe you usually just give a card but this year wanted to buy a gift or have you just run out of ideas? Here are some great ideas which should help you all available to order from your home if, like me, you are shielding!
Maybe these ideas would be good for a friend for Galentine’s day?
Food and drink gifts
Instead of buying the same bottle of whisky you always do from the supermarket why not buy something a little unique? This Four Roses Small Batch is a popular Kentucky Bourbon you may not have tried before. For someone who loves this kind of whisky, this would make a lovely gift and the addition of the roses just adds that lovely touch. A perfect gift for the man in your life for Valentine’s day. Available from The Whisky Exchange for £31.95.
How about buying a nice sushi kit and cooking a nice meal together? It would make a great gift for an avid cook and also something you can then enjoy together. The above is the contents of the lovely Sushi Kit from Cuisine Box for £23 with gift wrap and recipes.
If you choose the gift wrap option this is how your sushi box will arrive looking lovely and ready to gift this Valentine’s day!
Longtooth Gin is a popular award-winning, and this dry version is a popular choice. With 10% of all sales going to the WWF it is an excellent gift for a gin lover who also really loves animals! Longtooth also have a 5% version coming soon for those trying to reduce their alcohol intake so do keep an eye out for that! This gift-boxed version is £40 directly from Longtooth.
How about some personalised Champagne from sayitwithChampers.co.uk? My choice of wording for the label is “I love being in lockdown with you, Love you forever and always, Jen xxx” I also chose “Happy Valentine’s”, there is nothing stopping you from choosing something like “Happy Galentine’s” if you are buying for a friend!
Have you seen me sharing the Mermaid gins before from Isle of Wight Distillery? I have to say they are amazing! This lovely gift set is a selection of their two mermaid gins and the Mermaid salt vodka. If you fancy buying a nice mixture this gift set is perfect and I promise you won’t be disappointed. This trio is £16.50 directly from Isle of Wight Distillery where they also have bottles of their gin with glasses in gift sets and all their other tasty products!
This lovely watch is a nice sentimental gift but also a fun gift too. Far from a diamond ring, it is a nice fun way to show someone you care. With a cute dog wearing sunglasses on the face it is perfect for all year round not just Valentine’s and a great symbol of love. Available from Toff London for £49.99 at the moment, usually £89
Do you have a favourite photo of the two of you together? Or perhaps a favourite family photo? For me, this photo is one I love of me, Stuart and Ben and really does symbolise this is love because Stuart loves me and Ben and taking on another man’s child is so important and shows such love so I chose this for Valentine’s day. This canvas is from Vistaprint where you can personalise them as you wish and with some predesigned styles too. They do various sizes and all very reasonable prices, check them out here from £15.32.
Something for a cosy night in
This year everyone in the UK will be having a cosy night in this February 14th. I absolutely love this mink throw from Bedroom Athletics for £80 which is perfect for snuggling up watching a romantic movie.
How about some toastie warm slippers? These slipper boots from Bedroom Athletics and great for a cosy night in. They also double up perfectly for whilst you are working from home and want to keep warm working at the computer for example.
For a relaxing Valentine’s night in why not buy a low-calorie snack to enjoy whilst watching a movie. These Popchips are 97kcal per serving and won’t spoil any diet as much as a huge bag of “normal” crisps! They are available at most supermarkets so even if you are ordering online you should find them easily.
Self-care and grooming gifts
Everyone at the moment seems to have dry chapped hands, it is all that sanitiser we are using isn’t it! This lovely gift set from Nursem is formulated for working hands and for each set purchased another is sent free to nurses and midwives. I love this idea as a nice way of giving back. The full range is available here, this particular set is here at £29.99.
Are you buying for a man who loves a proper shave? This set from The Clear Confidence Company is a perfect plastic-free gift. The safety razor is currently £14.97 and the brush also £14.97. Why not have a look and see if this would be a good Valentine’s gift for the man in your life.
These eye gel pads are perfect to give the illusion of great night sleep. With 60 soothing pads, they are a perfect treat from Florence by Mills and available for £35 from Asos, Beauty Bay and Boots.

Here is the specific box I am talking about but do check out the other ideas from Buyagift too as there may be something else you love the idea of!
The gift arrives in an envelope like this for the recipient to claim so it would also be perfect for a loved one you are not with on the day or even to buy as a secret admirer and send in the post!
This is definitely one of my favourite phrases and perfect to give to the one you love. Especially if like me, they love their sleep! Available in this size art print from Ink and Drop for £25 but also in smaller sizes for £13.
This print is another popular one from Ink and Drop available here in a variety of sizes. It is also available on canvas if you prefer.

Looking for a beautiful token of love without buying jewellery this gorgeous dreamcatcher could be ideal. The picture really does not do it justice it is glass and catches the light beautifully. At 120mm by 25mm it is a nice size to hang anywhere as a reminder of the love in your relationship every time it catches the light. Available from With Love and Light for £10.
Something for the bedroom
How about something like these vibrators for you to have fun in the bedroom, or anywhere else for that matter! This Bathmate Vibe Bullet Vibrator for £19.99 would be a perfect Valentine’s Day gift. It is fun, waterproof and available in black or chrome, or why not buy you each one!
