Love is in the air! On Valentine’s Day many of us turn to bouquets of roses, heart-shaped boxes of chocolates and swanky dinner plans to woo our date. On what’s known to be the most romantic day of the year, step outside the sweets box and shy away from predictable, traditional gifts. Why not shake things up and surprise your loved one with something out of the ordinary this year!
If you’re already scratching your head trying to pinpoint the perfect present, do not fret — we have you covered! From personalised robes to snuggly sheepskin slippers, Soak&Sleep wants to help perfect the day with unique heartfelt gifts your partner is sure to cherish.
Valentine’s Day gift ideas for her
Monogrammed gifts. What’s better than stepping into a warm, cosy Egyptian cotton robe after a relaxing bath? Stepping into a personalised one! This Valentine’s Day give her a tailor-made gift that is customised with her initials. Opt for a luxury bathrobe, bed linens or Egyptian cotton towels for a gift that will add something special to a daily necessity!
Photographs. We’ve all heard the saying ‘a picture is worth 1,000 words!’ Take that idea to heart and select one of your favourite snapshots together for her Valentine’s Day gift. Showcase it in a nice frame – she’ll be able to personalise her room décor while reminiscing on great memories!
Ease her tension. Treat your missus to a day at the spa, where she can receive the royal treatment with a massage, manicure or facial. She will return home feeling rejuvenated, relaxed and ready to take on the day!
Valentine’s gift ideas for him
Pillow perfect. After a long day at work, your boyfriend, fiancé or husband most likely heads to the sofa to put up his feet and relax. Why not optimise his comfort and add a snuggly pillow to the mix? Whether he prefers duck feather or pure wool, he’ll be able to loosen up and unwind. For an added touch, personalise some pillowcases with his initials.
Soft flannel nightwear. Ensure he is achieving the ultimate sleep with comfortable and movable sleepwear. Spoil him with cotton loungewear, which offers a cosy yet respectable look — if the doorbell should ring, even Cupid would approve!
Breakfast in bed. Traditionally he’s the one to bring her breakfast in bed! Why not turn the tables and whip up a morning treat to start his day off right. Top off warm toasted muffins with poached eggs, salmon and hollandaise sauce for an easy and delicious eggs benedict meal in bed. For an added bonus let him have full control of the remote!
For the lovebirds
Romantic getaways. Planning on taking a Valentine’s Day road trip to a nearby bed and breakfast or seaside town this year? You’ll be able to enjoy each other’s company away from the stress that comes from being at home and work. Make sure you two are prepared for the journey by bringing travel pillows to ensure ultimate comfort.
Quaint candlelit dinner. If you prefer not to venture out for your Valentine’s Day dinner, enjoy a romantic meal at home. Start a fire, open a bottle of red and relax in the comfort of your own home. Watch a film under a thick lambswool throw for a cosy stay-at-home dinner. Sometimes it really is about the small things in life!
