It’s official, we live in an equal opportunity world now so if you’re expecting your beloved to shower you with love and gifts this Valentine’s day; you better be prepared to reciprocate.
And looking for the perfect gift can be tedious especially if you’re like me who thinks Valentine’s Day has come way too quickly this year. Nevertheless, here are a few awesome gift ideas for both men and women especially if you’re pressed for time.
Les Georgettes Jewellery
Let’s start with jewellery, it’s the go -to Valentine’s Day gift,
usually paired with flowers but you can put a modern twist on the idea by going for unique jewellery designs by French customisable jewellery house Les Georgettes.
I love their intricate designs and the versatility; you can pick a design and simply change the strap based on your mood and season so it never gets old. Use special code – ELSIE15 to get money off your purchase here.
Speaking of jewellery, beautifully designed watches also make great Valentine’s day gifts especially if they are customisable.
Scandinavian watch brand Nordgreen has an extensive range for both men and women; it’s inspired by nature and comes with interchangeable straps so it can customised for any occasion.
True to Danish tradition, Nordgreen watches are minimalist in design and beautiful to look at; allowing the wearer to focus on the little moments that make life meaningful.

Ross & Ross Man Box
Buying a Valentine’s Day gifts for men can be stressful as there usually isn’t a lot of variety and men like what they like. Say hello to the Ross and Ross Man Box, a gift box filled with ingredients considered to be manly, although I don’t think a woman will have any qualms digging into the contents. We love beer, salami and chutney as much as the next guy.
Here’s what’s in the box:
Premium Cotswold Lager – made by the Cotswold Brewing Co, this is a smooth, subtle lager with a soft, fruity flavour that is additive-free, preservative-free and unpasteurised for the freshest possible taste.
British Charcuterie Original Salami – made by the Cotswold Curer, Cirencester, this award-winning, air-dried salami is based on the classic French‘Rosette’ De Lyon, but produced in the Cotswolds using locally sourced free range pork. It has a mellow yet complex flavour with great depth and balance.
Mr Trotter’s Great British Original Crackling – cooked in small batches by hand, these pork scratchings are made from 100% prime British pork skin from the finest British pigs to deliver the ultimate porkie crunch (contains gluten)
Smoked Apple Chutney – slow-cooked Cotswold apples combined with a delicious smoky flavour makes this a great accompaniment with all things pork.
It’s the perfect Valentine’s gift for anyone who truly appreciates great British food. Grab box here:

Sona Cruise & TIANI™ 2
As sex toys go, LELO is top of the range and the Sona Cruise and TIANI™ 2 are their most popular. Sona Cruise comes with easy to use buttons and features eight different settings, while the TIANI™ 2 is a remote control couple’s massager that enhances the sensations for both partners.

Ormonde Jayne Made-To-Measure Fragrance
Fragrance is another gift that many go for on Valentine’s Day but I’d say if you’re going for fragrance, try and spice it up; go beyond the norm which is designer and celebrity brands and go for something that’ll truly make an impact.
I’m talking about Ormonde Jayne’s Made-To-Measure service which lets your true love choose the exact concentration of their favourite Ormonde Jayne perfume. The appointment only service is complete with chilled champagne and chocolates while the chosen bottle is engraved with initials, or a secret message.

Missguided Babe Oud
This Missguided Babe Oud hits all the right spots this Val’s Day. As the latest addition to the Missguided range, it’s spicier and edgier than the other fragrances in the Babe collection. The notes are rich and warm leading with baies rose, sparkling bergamot, lemon and orange with a dash of red fruit and neroli; making it a very grown up fragrance that exudes sexiness especially on a Valentine’s day date.
Jean Paul Gaultier Classique
Another fragrance that is perfect for Valentine’s Day is this Jean Paul Gaultier Classique. This fragrance was launched years ago but you can never go wrong gifting this. The scent is unforgettably hypnotic, lasts 24hrs and beyond; not to mention the bottle itself epitomises sexiness. Classique is a beautiful floral oriental fragrance that is both aphrodisiac, regressive, warm and smooth.

It’s an enhanced T-Sonic™ facial scrub brush and anti-aging system that provides an effective cleanse to prep skin for the smoothest shave ever.
