Valentine’s Day is a lovely chance to show your special someone just how much you care. You could send flowers, gift a heart-shaped box of chocolates, or book a romantic dinner, but what if you’d like to do something that’s a bit outside the box?
Valentine’s is a perfect excuse to get a little creative, so with that in mind, here are 6 sentimental gift ideas that will make your loved one go weak at the knees.
A Trip Down Memory Lane //
As the most romantic date in the calendar, Valentine’s presents an opportunity to do something really romantic. Show your partner how much you cherish them by making a memory box or jar. Fill it with tickets, photos, keepsakes and little notes containing your favourite memories.
Plan Ahead //
Alternatively, you can use Valentine’s as a chance to look towards the future. Rather than spoiling your other half for just one day, how about gifting a whole year of date nights? This could include movie nights, ice skating, star gazing, summer picnics, a night away, or a mini road trip. I adore these 52 Date Night Cards from Thispaperbook!
Go Back to the Beginning //
Whilst a memory box is a thoughtful and meaningful gift, you could consider going back to the beginning. Plan a cute Valentine’s date at the spot where you first met, cook the first meal you ate together, or recreate the night you first said, ‘I love you.’
Serious Pampering //
Life can be hectic and stressful – even more so when you have a family to look after – so use Valentine’s Day as a chance to show your significant other how much you appreciate them. So, say thank you for everything they do with a homemade pamper kit. You could include a bottle of their favourite tipple, a sweet treat, relaxing bath products and scented candles.
Special Jewellery //
It’s a well-known fact that Valentine’s is a popular day for proposals, but what about those of who us are already married? You could give a special piece of jewellery to reaffirm your commitment, such as an eternity ring, to show them just how much they mean to you.
Food for Thought //
If the special someone in your life is a bit of a foodie, then a homemade bake could be the perfect Valentine’s gift. Make a cake and write a sweet message with icing pens, bake romantic themed cupcakes, try Valentine’s themed doughnuts, or go for heart shaped meringues.
Which one of these sentimental Valentine’s gift ideas will you choose? Have a lovely Valentine’s Day!
