Whilst I’ve never been one for huge gestures when it comes to Valentines Day, I have to admit to being a bit of a sucker for anything that’s had a bit of thought put in it, and it’s lovely if the husband steps up and surprises me with something that hasn’t come from the local supermarket (thankfully this has never happened!).
It’s always nice to receive something on a special occasion that is a bit of a ‘one off’ – we like to out-do each other with interesting and quirky ideas when it comes to our wedding anniversary gifts, and Valentines Day is often no different!
Some people think Valentines Day is a bit cheesy and commercial now, but whilst you don’t have to go OTT, I do think love and a happy relationship is something to celebrate. A well-thought-out present can make you feel that you’re your other half’s numero uno and that they care.
So if you’re looking for that special gift to give, or you want to point your husband/partner in the direction of something decent, look no further than Amazon Handmade:
Amazon Handmade is a special store within Amazon.co.uk where expert crafters and producers of all sorts of gifts and items sell their wares- like a mega craft fair without having to move from the sofa!
Here are a couple of fab Valentines Day present ideas you can get direct from Amazon Handmade…
I LOVE this Personalised Handmade Makeup Bag(I’ve needed a new one for ages), and looks much more expensive than the £6.95 it actually costs!
This LOVE Rustic Scrapbook Album (£23) is something you can keep forever, and I love the fact that you can really personalise it by including not just photos, but any other mementos of your relationship. I’ve had a box full of bits and bobs that are ‘us’ and have never had anywhere to display them (think: gig tickets, holiday mementos, the playing card from the amazing magician at our wedding). This scrapbook is perfect and goes with most people’s home decor too so is easy on the eye (bonus).
I hadn’t seen the above photo booth snap since we’d moved house (it used to be stuck on our old kitchen door) and seeing again and displaying it in here instantly made me smile. I’ve subsequently gone down a memory lane rabbit hole, and have been delving around for more and more bits to add to the book – definitely become a bit addicted to scrapbooking now! The book is made of high-quality hardboard front and back, and with 80 heavyweight pages there is plenty of room to keep adding more memories over the years.
This You Are My Missing Piece Jigsaw Heart Keyring Set is super-cute too and ideal as we could both do with a new keyring- our house keys are looking rather shabby at the moment! At £6.99 with free delivery it’s a sweet but inexpensive gesture.
