Forget the flowers: 4 better gift ideas for Valentine’s Day30/01/2014

Our four ideas for gifts are so good that you’ll have a hard time picking just one…
Even though you’re probably over the commercial element of Valentine’s Day and the thoughts of it are more cynical than loving, it’s still a good excuse to pamper your girlfriend and give yourself a little extra love too while you’re at it.
We know it’s hard to keep coming up with decent gift ideas. How do you show you care without getting her the same thing every year? Take it from us, you could get the usual flowers and chocolates but why not get her something that will last her much longer; without breaking the bank of course. Here are some of the things that we would like to get this Valentine’s Day:
Does the woman in your life like chocolate? Yes? WRONG! She LOVES chocolate! If you are thinking of getting something chocolaty for Valentine’s Day you are already onto a winner.
We recommend getting her something different this year and something that will really have the WOW factor. Imagine her coming in the door after a terrible day at work to find a scrumptious chocolate fountain full of melting chocolate and delicious marshmallows and fudge to dip. Try this chocolate fountain from Littlewoods.ie. At only €54 RRP, it’s guaranteed to put a smile on her face AND earn you some valuable brownie points!
This gift will really let her know you care about her and about the environment too. VOYA products are organic luxury for skin. The gift boxes are made from recycled paper and the beauty products are handmade right here in Ireland too meaning sustainability for the environment.
If your special lady is into her organic foods and cares about her skin, this is the ideal gift for her. The best thing about the products is that they are made from seaweed harvested off the Atlantic coast and are a completely natural way of keeping skin healthy and soft. Trust us, she’ll be well impressed.
In a previous blog we spoke about the benefits of having a Girls Night In. This is something your girl will love you for—giving her and her friends the ultimate girls night in. It also means you can go out with your mates (but you don’t have to tell her that!) An Irish company is doing Girls Night In gift baskets which come stuffed with chick flick, chocolate, crisps, lemonade, and sweets. This is definitely one that will not only impress her but will also win over her friends! Of course you could always go that extra mile and create your own gift basket!
Nothing says “I love you” to a girl quite like a diamond. After all, diamonds are forever. But if you’re not ready to make the big plunge into diamonds (they are seriously expensive), there are always more subtle options like this beautiful sterling silver heart-shaped pendant from Tiffany & Co.
