Ladies and Gentleman, there is no way to get out of this! In just a few days it’s Valentine’s Day, a romantic, a love spreading day where you can show your deep feelings to someone special in your life. I know, some of you spoil-sports say Valentine’s Day is commercialised and that you don’t DO Valentine’s. BUT I think the 14th of February is a day that reminds you of showing your appreciation to your partner. And even if your partner says, it doesn’t mean anything to him/her, they will be disappointed deep down if you show up empty-handed ;) It doesn’t need to be a trip to the moon, no Paris holiday, just something small that expresses love without words.
You have two options now: Either you can be one of those desperate people running around on V-Day looking for red lingery for her or the billion-st aftershave for him… some others buy weird teddy bears made-in-China; Mu option: You can check out my unique Valentine’s Day gift list. I have spent hours checking out the best gifts that will definitely put a smile on your sweetheart’s face.
Is she more of a romantic girl, does she like candles, roses, and chocolate? Is he really into action or does he prefer a gift worn by you ;) ? No matter what it is that you are looking for, I found just the right Valentine’s Day gifts for your partner that you can order super easily on Amazon:
1. Chocolate Fountain – Chocolate is all around you
Just the thought of it makes me ecstatic! I’m an absolute chocoholic. Hot chocolate in the morning, a treat after lunch, and some Cadburys on the couch in the evening. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like chocolate, so this one could be the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for your love. This chocolate fountain is liquid sexiness. You fill it up with a maximum of 2000gr and it gives you 3 hours of pleasure… *ehem*… Cut up some yummy fruits, some strawberries, grapes, bananas and enjoy the taste of heaven. First, I was a little bit sceptical myself, because normally those things make a huge mess and it takes ages to clean, but the super positive reviews of this Classic Stainless Steel Chocolate Fountain convinced me and I am seriously in love. It’s not only fabulous for a romantic dessert, it will also be the highlight on every party. You might find some cheaper ones somewhere, but this specific fountain has a great construction, so it’s really easy to clean.
Why not surprise your partner with a nice dinner, candlelight and this delicious chocolate fountain? And even if you’re out of fruits, you know what else you could to with all that chocolate topping :)
2. Action Sport Camera – Great toy for action lovers
It doesn’t always have to be roses, cake and candles. If your partner is more into sports and likes adventures, you should take a look at this awesome little gadget: This Action Sport Camera is the best way to capture the adventures your partner experiences on bike, under water or up in the air. The cam comes with all devices you need to fix it safely to the handlebar of your mountain bike or to the helmet. The stability is really good and the picture quality is excellent. As it is waterproof as well, your partner can take it on dives and film the incredible underwater world in a way not many cameras can do. If you use a 64 GB card, it can film constantly for at least 2 hours at 1080 p. It might go for even longer at 720 p.
If you have a partner who loves being outside, loves hiking, cycling, flying and so on, this Action Sport Camera would bring so much fun. All reviews for this product are super positive and highly recommending it to everyone who loves fun and watching adventure footage. This would be a Valentine’s Day gift your partner he/she definitely wouldn’t expect (and much cheaper than a GoPro. What a great surprise!
3. “Fifty Shades of Grey” nail varnish
It’s “Fifty-Shades of Grey” time! Follow the hype about the film that has just been released and surprise your loved one with merch that is actually useful. This limited edition of the OPI 50 Shades of Grey nail polishes looks super stylish and was released in 6 tempting colours. The varnishes are the icing to every sexy outfit and will give your partner a feeling of glamour. Andi f there is one thing a girl can’t have enough from (ok next to shoes, jewellery and bags) it’s nail varnishes!! The size of these OPI nail polishes is practical and makes therefore also a perfect travel size. So scratch in style…
4. Sexy lingery – Isn’t that all that he wants?
The night of Valentine’s Day, you’re having a perfect romantic dinner with your partner, you guys pick a flick, get some popcorn ready and change into something more comfortable. But what if you don’t put on your cotton onesie, your worn-out Pjs? What if you surprise him in a sexy dressing gown to spice up the movie night? Seriously ladies, guys love that stuff and you can never have enough of that, so why not surprise him with a new hot outfit for Valentine’s Day? And what I like about this one, it doesn’t look tacky but super classy!
There is no better way to show your love, no better way to show him that you find him attractive. But even if you’re looking for a nice gift for your girlfriend, lingerie is one of the best-sellers of all life times. Not only because you treat yourself with this gift, you also show her that you think she would look awesome in this little outfit. She would feel attractive and much more confident.
You can choose this little sexy dressing gown in three different colours, the cute turquoise version, the beautiful purple and the passionate black. The quality is really good, the material really soft and smooth, and it feels really comfortable. All you need for a romantic and sexy Valentine’s Night.
5. Floating Water Lanterns – Love on the water
You want to make sure the atmosphere is just perfectly romantic on Valentine’s Day? This gift will provide all you need with a little touch of Hawaiian magic. I’ve seen these before on my travels through Hawaii: Floating Water Lanterns. You light it up, make a wish and send it out into the ocean. The lights are going to shine up in the pitch-black darkness, they float over the water, carrying your wish into the world.
I am so happy that I found these on Amazon. Maybe you have a little pond in your backyard, maybe a pool, otherwise you just prepare a bath for your partner, light up the lanterns and let them swim on the warm water. You get the matching tea light candles delivered with the lanterns, so they light up in a warm orange and golden colour. The paper is flame resistant and you can use the lanterns many times. I think these Floating Water Lanterns create the perfect romantic atmosphere for your Valentine’s Day.
6. Golden Floating Heart– Jewellery is a girl’s best friend
Guys, that’s just the way it is! Your girlfriend or wife already has tons of jewelry, so you might think, why buy another piece?! Simply because girls just looove jewellery! It doesn’t matter how many necklaces she already has, she is going to love this one, and the next one.
That’s why I’d like you to have a look at this beautiful floating golden heart from Ornami Glamour. That moment when you walk up to her, take that little box out of your pocket… Her eyes will shine, she smiles, and she will enjoy every single moment of unwrapping this gift! When her eyes hit the diamonds, you can see magic happening.
I picked this specific necklace as I think it’s not cheesy, despite being a heart. It is very feminine, but simple and quirky at the same time. It comes wrapped up in a in a nice gift box. Since it is not too massive, not too out there your lady will be able to wear it maybe even with a cool jeans jacket or flower dress. But it’s still impressive enough to be worn with a beautiful long dress for a posh night out.
7. Roses to your door step – The never ending classic Valentine’s Day gift
Of course you plan on buying flowers anyway… But how about do you get them delivered to her door step first thing in the morning, especially when you can’t see your partner until later on in the evening? IT is such a great surprise to getf lowers delivered. Sounds old fashioned, but it’s classy! On Amazon you can choose between different gorgeous bouquets, all colourful roses, and get someone to deliver them on Valentine’s Day right to your door.
Maybe your girlfriend will already be upset because you didn’t buy any flowers for her, but then, just a little after breakfast, the door bell is going to ring. She is going to be confused, wondering who’s there. She opens the door and sees a huge bunch of flowers with two legs. She comes back into the room, maybe still wondering who has sent her these, and you are going to be sitting there with a smile on your face…
I think this surprise will be something really special and unexpected. If she doesn’t like roses, there is a whole range of all sorts of flowers you can order and get delivered home. She is going to love it :)
I hope I could give you an idea of some nice and attentive gifts, besides the typical teddy bear and cakes. It doesn’t always need to be something expensive, as you know, it’s the thought that counts! Happy Valentine’s Day :)
