We’re going to say it – there’s something in the air this Valentine’s. Maybe it’s because the world is opening up again, or maybe it’s that we’ve had a few days when the birds have been singing and it’s felt like spring is around the corner, but either way, we’re feeling seriously romantic. We’re talking candles, flowers, kisses, and every heart-based emoji there is.
In the spirit of all this lurve, we’ve decided to make 2022 the best Valentine’s Day yet and we’re going to help you do the same. Stumped on what to get him/her/they/them this year? Everything you need is right here so you can stop worrying and start shopping (you’re welcome).
Valentine’s gifts for BAE
(That stands for Before Anyone Else in case you didn’t know.) If you’re lucky enough to be sharing this February 14th with a significant other, you’ll want to say ‘I love you’ in style. It’s easy to slip into cliché, but it doesn’t have to be that way. We’re here to help you think outside the box (of chocolates). This Personalised Love Love Love Fleece Blanket is literally one of the most romantic gifts we’ve ever seen. Tell them how you feel with your personalised message and then prepare to get underneath the blanket and get cosy together. Romance + style = this Message Light Bulb & Concrete Desk Lamp. So on point it almost hurts, you’ve got two bulb designs to choose from with the word ‘Love’ or a gorge pink heart design. This Gentleman’s Hardware Concrete Candle is fragranced with leather and vanilla (a delicious combo – trust us) and sets the scene perfectly for a super-steamy Val’s night in. Fed up with him stealing your fave mug? This Personalised His Mug means those days are over. Plus, you’ll look super thoughtful – #winning.
Valentine’s gifts for your gal pals
Valentine’s Day isn’t just for couples you know. TBH, we love our squad more than anything in the world. Who else can you count on for an honest opinion on that fashion-forward new outfit? Who’s going to come with you for that weekly pedi? And who’s going to listen when you’re moaning about your awful boss for the gazillionth time? There’s even a special day for letting your female friends know how much they mean to you. Galentine’s is on February 13th, and it’s all about ladies celebrating ladies. Show them how you feel on Galentine’s (possibly our fave holiday in the calendar BTW), with this Personalised Cadbury Roses Chocolate Bouquet. I mean honestly, who needs flowers when you’ve got one of these turning up at your door? This Hello Lovely Doormat is guaranteed to make her day, every time she leaves the house (and it’s environmentally friendly, so you can love your planet while loving your friend) and with its body-positive vibe, this voluptuous Bum Planter has girl-power written all over it. We’ll be taking one for ourselves too, ta.
Valentine’s gifts for singletons
And what about spreading the love to friends and family who aren’t coupled up, but deserve to be spoilt just as much (maybe even more) than those who are? Singles Awareness Day (or Singles Appreciation Day) is on February 15th each year, and we are fully on board. This, frankly genius, unofficial holiday is all about celebrating the joy of being single. We are browsing as we type, for gifts for some of our fave peeps, who aren’t currently in romantic relationships. Single lovers of retro gaming will be all over this Tetris Arcade Game in a Tin. With original sounds and two different game modes, it’s the most fun you can have with your clothes on. If they’re into their interiors, this LED Ceramic Star Decoration will bring a twinkle to their eye, or this Dip Dye Bubble Candle has a deeply pleasing aesthetic. This Haribo Heart Stress Squeezer is filled with love, for those moments when it all gets a bit much for them, and show them what real friends are made of with this official Friends Breakfast Gift Set. It’s the One Where You Made Their Valentine’s Day.
Valentine’s gifts for the most important person of all (AKA you)
Not that we need an excuse to spoil ourselves, but we’ll be sending those wish-list items straight to our basket this February because self-love is the new #relationshipgoals and we deserve it. Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the loveliest of them all? You, that’s right. Show yourself some serious love with this Gold Heart Mirror, complete with hanging chain. We’ve had our eye on this Leopard Candle Holder for weeks, and while we’re at it, this Moon Phases Hanging Planter will bring a real touch of Scandi style to our living space. We loves us some stylish stationery too, and this Personalised You Will Shine Notebook has a unique touch as well as a positive vibe – we love.
