Valentine’s Day gift ideas: Your ultimate guide for 2019

Words by Tash Bazika

It’s almost Valentine’s Day—that time of year to show your sweetheart how much you love them. If you’re considering reaching for the chocolates and roses, you may want to think again. Show them how much they truly mean to you with our guide, which has something for every type of person.

For the one who is always late

Give the gift of time, with the unique Solgaard Design men’s and women’s hex watches. The premium suede leather strap in a light grey finish for women, and black on black leather for men, combined with polished edges gives a minimalistic look, perfect for every occasion and outfit.

For the makeup lover

Girls’ life’s are hectic, and to make it worse, their outfits never have pockets and it’s not like they can bring their entire make-up bag everywhere they go. This is where the perfect gift comes in handy. FaceCase attaches to the back of your phone and has everything you need, lipstick, concealer, blush, highlighter and a mirror with a slot for ID, cards and cash.

For the whiskey connoisseur

Does your significant other love their whiskey? Why not give them a hand-crafted spirit from the Hillrock Estate Distillery. This unique American whiskey is an award-winning field-to-glass rye whiskey aged in charred American oak casks, which adds layers of caramel and vanilla that perfectly complements the traditional rye spice.

For the wellness-minded person in your life

Pamper her with the gift of restorative skincare from Desavery. The Discovery box is a perfect all-in-one gift package that includes the Stellar daily serum with fast-absorbing, prickly pear, rosehip and camellia oils, which help in brightening skin tone and improving elasticity. Also included in the gift box is a pocket-sized roller, RESET, which is used to balance hormones.

For the chocolate lover


Who doesn’t love chocolate? It’s an aphrodisiac and it’s the perfect valentine’s day treat. This year, reach for something different with a ChocoVivo bar, made the old fashion Mayan way. Bite into a spicy and sweet Mayan tradition, which starts with a cinnamon taste, then the chilies kick-in at the end for a spicy Valentine’s Day.

For the planner

Do you have a planner in your life? Someone with a busy schedule, perhaps. This Valentine’s Day why not give them a day planner that they will love to keep on their desk, rather than hiding in a drawer. The luxury day planner is stylish, elegant and provides a simple, clean agenda to ensure every day is planned, leaving more time for quality time with you. They will love the rose gold pen to match!
