The Bluewater Valentine's Gift Guide: Our Top Gifts for Everyone
Valentine’s Day can be a stressful time for some, but don’t worry because we have some gift ideas to make it easier, whether it’s for your partner, yourself, your family or your friends…
With Valentine’s Day around the corner, all retailers are decorating their shop windows with teddy bears, sexy outfits and anything heart-related, and love is beginning to filter itself into the air. Whether you’re single, in a relationship or ‘it’s complicated’, you cannot help but breathe it all in. It can be a daunting time for some, with expectations from their other halves running high and time to buy the perfect gift quickly running out. For others, it's a great time to appreciate the biggest love of their lives: themselves. Whether you're stumped for ideas for him, for her or for you, then we have got your gifting needs covered. From beautiful jewellery to fun games to self-indulgences that will have you smiling, these are our top Bluewater Valentine’s Day picks. Cooler than roses, and they'll last a lot longer too!
Something for Him
Everyone needs their own signature smell, and you want something that both you and your partner will like. And since you’re the one who will have to smell him most of the time, why not use this opportunity to gift him a new cologne of your choice? Woody scents are always a safe bet for men, so this product by Narciso Rodriguez is bound to be a great purchase for your man. Ingredients include black pepper and blue cedar for the earthy scents, and some bergamot to give it a slightly more citrusy tang that makes it stand out from the rest.
Something for Her
An easy way to show your love is through a piece of jewellery. Our tip is to pay careful attention to what your other half likes: what’s her favourite animal? What colour does she like to wear? What are her hobbies? Translate these little details into a piece of jewellery if you can. But if you just want to make a simple but bold statement to her, then you can never go wrong with a heart piece. This heart bracelet from Ted Baker is nothing too extravagant or showy, but will show your love in a lovely, delicate and pure way.
