Whether you celebrate Valentine’s Day or not, at this time of year it’s hard to escape it! All the shops are filled with heart-shaped gifts, stuffed toys, balloons, and boxes of chocolates. I personally quite like Valentine’s Day – I enjoy all seasonal events to be honest.. especially ones that involve chocolate! For this blog post I’ve collaborated with Moonpig to share what I’m up to this Valentine’s Day as well as some Valentine’s gift ideas. I was provided with a voucher in order to pick my favourite gifts.
Gavin and I don’t go OTT on Valentine’s Day but we do like to celebrate it in our little ways. We usually go out for a nice romantic dinner and perhaps buy each other a little gift. Nothing huge or expensive, just a small token gesture – as well as a funny card of course! Moonpig have a brilliant range of humorous Valentine’s Day cards, and also more naughty ones if that’s your thing! You can also personalise a lot of them and even add your own photos. I’ve picked this one for Gavin.. hehe!
Red roses are my absolute favourite and Moonpig very kindly sent me a huge bunch for Valentine’s Day! This Valentine’s Day flower bouquet is called ‘The Passion’ and represents everything about love and romance. The standard bouquet includes x8 burgundy roses, x5 spray roses and x3 pistache foliage leaves, however this is the larger version with even more stems included. Each bouquet is hand-tied by florists and are delivered wrapped in frosted cellophane and in a box to keep them protected. I just love them.. they’re so pretty!
Of course, flowers aren’t for everyone! Alcoholic gifts are also popular to give at Valentine’s Day, and Gavin loves a bottle of red so I picked this bottle of Malbec red wine for him. It arrived safely packaged, wrapped in bubble wrap and in a sturdy cardboard box. Hopefully he’ll crack it open over Valentine’s Day and share it with me!
I also got him one of the Smartbox gift experiences – there are loads of different options available so it was difficult to choose! I decided to go with the Fun Together gift experience box which offers a voucher for huge range of experiences for two. This is a great option as it means I get something out of it too!
You can use the voucher for a range of fun things for couples including romantic dinners out, champagne afternoon tea, a day out at the zoo, and thrill seeking adventures such as segways! Brands include Prezzo, Zizzi, London Zoo, and Bannatynes, so I’m sure we’ll find something exciting to do!
Moonpig also do a range of fun and novelty gifts too!
