Unique Ideas for Valentine’s Day (Guest Post)

Valentine’s Day can either be a source of great pleasure or great frustration. And believe it or not, but this is just as true for couples as it is for single people. People in relationships often feel like they’re under a lot of pressure to give the perfect present on Valentine’s Day, and many feel worried that what they choose won’t be up to scratch.
One of the most difficult things about choosing a Valentine’s Day gift, which is equally true for gift-giving on other special occasions, is that we’d all like to give a gift which is totally unique. But if your significant other is hard to shop for this is easier said than done.
Researching Gift Ideas

As always, the best place to start when research unique gift ideas is on the internet. But don’t just go to the usual gift websites. Branch out a little; watch some YouTube videos, search on Pinterest and even read the newspapers to find out what amazing things other people have done for their Valentine’s Days. You don’t have to copy what’s gone before, but you might find the inspiration you’ve been looking for to plan your own special gift.

Special Gifts for Particular People

There’s one tried-and-tested way to come up with the perfect present idea, and that’s to find out what your partner particularly likes. If they have any out-there interests, this will be hugely beneficial for you when planning your gift. For example:
  • If your partner has a spiritual side, you might want to give them the gift of a professional psychic reading from a Kooma clairvoyant
  • If your partner has a sweet tooth, take them for a day out at a chocolatiers. Not only will they get to make their own sweets, but they’ll get to eat them too.
  • If your partner has a favourite author, try to get a signed copy of one of their books. If possible, get it signed to them – this is a gift which will work on many levels.
Avoid the Last Minute Panic

If you still haven’t found a unique gift by the time Valentine’s Day comes around, don’t panic. Sometimes the most unique gift of all is that of an experience, so planning a perfect day together can serve equally as well as a gift they can hold. The unique element will be the memories you make together.
