Interesting Valentine's Day Gift Ideas

Spoil your lover with an alternative gift this Valentine’s Day

Last Updated: 12 April 2017

This Valentine’s Day, spoil your partner with a personal gift - we all know chocolates, roses and lace lingerie are traditional gifts. Buying gifts should be a personal thing, because there are so many ways to be romantic toward your lover and fortunately there people who prefer alternative gifts. The plan for a perfect gift is to make sure you buy or do something your partner will not forget the moment they get a new present.

Wixworth Gin for your love
Spoil your valentine with a bottle of artfully balanced gin this Valentine’s Day and toast to your love! Wixworth Gin is defined by fresh juniper and subtly infused with the finest botanicals, delicate floral and sweet pine flavours and subtle spicy notes of Mzansi’s Renosterbos. Your partner will most definitely enjoy how London meets SA in one of the most loved spirits, that is made to savour. Note that this premium gin is available from major retail stockists all over the country for only R299, so stock up now!

Make a DIY gift
Cooking dinner or making a mixed CD will not do the trick this time, there are a lot of interesting things you can do yourself. What we love about DIY gifts – they are inexpensive and they have great sentimental value, plus you can be as creative as you like. Handwritten letters are so cute especially if you are in a long distance relationship, you can write or even draw and make your bae smile. The Reason I Love You Jar, is the best way to store personal memories you have created together.

Alternative bouquet
Roses might be a symbol of love, but not everyone loves roses or even flowers. So when buying a bouquet you have to consider what your partner likes. Bonsai trees are beautiful and they give the receiver of the gift the chance to cultivate this beautiful plant.

Shark cage diving
If your significant other loves adventure, then this is the perfect gift for them and you can enjoy the gift together and create more wonderful memories. Pack your things and go on a road trip to Gansbaai (shark-hangout) and get your heart pumping with adrenaline and passion.

Green gifts
Anyone who is eco-friendly would really appreciate a gift that will not cause harm to the planet. Eco- friendly underwear, is the best way to show your Valentine and Mother Nature some love. Eco- friendly gifts are not limited to underwear only, you can buy shoes, chocolate, wine or jewellery.

Subscription box
Monthly deliveries are awesome and you can give your lover the chance of being introduced to various brands they have never heard of.  If your partner is a foodie you can choose from the Daily Dish, Tuck Box, Good Snacks, Wine of the Month Club and the Delight Box.  Subscription boxes are not limited to food only, their market is broad - you could even get books and underwear.  Lingerie Letters is one of the delivery services where you can get something sexy for your lover.
