Valentine's Day Gifts with a Difference


It's almost Valentine's Day and with lockdown still in full swing it's nice to be prepared and buy a gift or two that brings a smile to your loved ones lips. I'm normally not that big on Valentine's Day but anything goes now and I plan to celebrate all the little occasions where I can. Any excuse for a cheer up is fine by me, so please read on to see some adorable Valentine's gifts with a difference.


a whale of a time - I Heart Chocolate Box
If you're looking for a thoughtful gift from Scotland then a whale of a time is perfect for you. They're passionate about the Highlands and Islands of Scotland and create carefully curated gift boxes to showcase the very best this magical region has to offer. Their latest offering for Valentine's Day happens to be this beautiful I Heart Chocolate Box complete with Lucy Wagtail DIY Harris Tweed lavender heart kit and three bars of choccie from Chocolates of Glenshiel; Dark Chocolate & Skye Sea Salt, White Chocolate & Scottish Raspberry and Salted Caramel & Hazelnut. All 70g each. I love that this gift box has a little craft activity in it and at £25 it's a fair priced box of goodies. Highly recommend for all lovers of Scotland. 

Manly Man Co
This is something completely different for all the meat lovers out there - bouquets of beef jerky shaped like flowers! The idea came to founder Greg Murray after a simple conversation with his wife Jacquie, for whom he had recently bought a bouquet of flowers: "Why isn’t there a gift for men that’s equivalent to flowers? Yes, you can buy men flowers, but the practice isn't what you might call commonplace. The couple speculated that a bouquet of beef jerky might be the perfect stand-in. Soon after his wife surprised Greg with the very first iteration of what is now called “Man Bouquets”— sticks and sheets of jerky carved into the shape of flowers and roses that are presented inside a pint glass or beer mug “vase”." I think the idea is utterly brilliant and something I would totally buy for my husband. He's a big fan of beef jerky and biltong type meats so this would be right up his street. Prices vary from as little as $22 and there's a large selection to choose from. Get in quick before they sell out - The Manly Man Company!

ROX Jewellery
A traditional Valentine's gift usually comes in the form of a ring or some nice jewellery and ROX happen to have a massive range to choose from including watches if that's your thing. I have myself purchased quite a few pieces from ROX and their customer service is always first class. ROX is an award-winning British luxury jeweller producing some of the UK's most inspiring jewellery and retailing the world's finest luxury watches. They have a lovely Valentine's range at the moment with this beautiful diamond heart shaped necklace just waiting to be snapped up. ROX are fun, hip and definitely on trend. I'd highly recommend them for all your jewellery and watch needs for Valentine's and the future. 

Tactic Games
If you're like me and have children then why not treat this Valentine's Day as a family friendly day and purchase a new board game for everyone to get involved with? Tactic Games have a huge choice and have been in the business of making board games for over 50 years so you really can't go wrong with them. We really like the look of Ninja Rush and I Know Junior to add to our collection and we're really looking forward to our family games night with them. Tactic Games also do adult board games which look just as fun. Head over to their website to check them out for yourselves, they'd make excellent gifts too. 

Life Q30 Headphones
Headphones are all the rage these days and have become quite a popular present for children and adults alike. I know in our house we all have a set of headphones and probably some extra (as the kids are hash bash) so they'll always be a gift winner in my book. Life Q30 Headphones look brilliant but also promise comfort with their soft ear cups and sleek design. You get 40 hours of listening from a fast 5 minute charge which is excellent when you're in a hurry. With everyone working from home and being on zoom calls these days the Life Q30 Headphones would be the perfect gift with it's tailored noise cancelling modes for indoors, outdoors or transport. A great present to give or receive this Valentine's Day.
