Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas For Him & Her

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and if you still have no idea what you’ll be gifting your special someone on the most romantic day of the year, then look no further. We have come up with a few ideas if you’re a little low on inspiration. 


We all know and love NetFlorist, which is why we just had to add them to the list for Valentine’s Day gifting options. Since Valentine’s Day is on a weekday, you need to send your sweetheart something while she’s/he’s at work (it’s exciting to receive a delivery and of course make the colleague swoon a little). From personalised items and cute hampers to the usual chocolates, flowers and teddy bears, they’re sure to have something to spoil your Valentine. Check out their His and Hers gifts, add to cart, set the date for delivery, pay and click. You’re done. Now to get onto planning your special evening.

Celestial Gift Experiences

But what if the usual chocolates, flowers and romantic dinner for two isn’t your Valentine’s thing? Not to worry, surely Celestial Gift Experiences will have the thing! They offer a variety of experiences for him and her to try – perfect if your sweetheart has an adventurous spirit. We love the sounds of the Xtreme Drifting Experience at RedStar Raceway in Mpumalanga, the opportunity to drive a Ferrari racing car, or the gyrocopter fly-in safari day for two. The options are endless, all you have to do is visit their site and check out what they have in store. There’s something for everyone.

Something Pretty from Pandora

Has your Valentine got their very own Pandora bracelet? If so, why not help them add a few charms to their collection by getting something pretty from Pandora’s Valentine’s Day range. From beautiful rings and charms to bracelets and earrings, you certainly will be spoilt for choice… well, your Valentine will be. We absolutely love the Path to Love charm for R579*. It’s just too beautiful to pass up.

Let’s face it, shopping for your man can be quite a difficult task. We never know what they want and most of the time, we cannot find any awesome, ‘not so lovey-dovey‘ gifts (‘cute‘ gifts could be a little cringy). So, if you’re in search of gifts that are more manly and rugged, then check out Mantality. They have something for any type of man – the gamer, the tech guru, the adventurer, the stylish, the crafter and even the DIY man.


Speaking of manly gift ideas, have you checked out Mancrate just yet? We mentioned them last year in our Christmas gift guide, and we must say, we’re still totally in love with them and their awesome crates packed with great goodies. And not only do they look amazing, they also come with their very own mini pry bar to get into – we just think that is a rather interesting twist to the experience. A favourite of ours in the Braai Man Crate, filled with a black braai apron, seasoning grinders, aluminium braai tongs, a True Utility Firestash, Timber Lites, a camo cap, sunblock and lip balm. There are a variety of packs to choose from. No matter what your man loves and enjoys, there’s sure to be a crate perfect for him.

For a delivery that’s extra special, why not check out We discovered them just recently and love absolutely everything on the site. They have a selection of goodies to choose from including custom gifts and hampers to Valentines goodies, flowers and even corporate gifts. We were looking for something ‘different’ for Valentine’s Day and came across the Love Is In The Air edible arrangement – a sweet chocolate arrangement with star-shaped chocolates and a ‘Love You’ balloon in a gift box with a bow. We also love the Picnic for Two option and the red roses and Ferrero Rocher bouquet. But don’t take our word for it, go take a look for yourself.

The Blue Crane Hoodie from

This one is for the gents and ladies who love hoodies, camping, travelling, adventure, that sort of thing. Now, this isn’t just any hoodie – it’s the only hoodie you’ll ever need. You may think that it’s pretty odd to mention this as a Valentine’s Day gift, but as soon as you see the potential this item has, you’ll understand. We just love the idea of such a versatile piece of clothing. Believe it or not, but this hoodie has 20 features – a bottle opener zipper, waterproof drinks pocket, thumbhole cuffs, wrist wallet pocket, passport pocket, sunglasses holder, built-in microfibre cloth, front zip kangaroo pocket, waterproof cell pocket, a large iPad pocket, a miscellaneous pocket for other random goodies, tangle-free earphone hole, a custom country flag of your choice, optional backpack pocket, and it converts into a soft pillow and a travel back with an adjustable strap, a spacious inner pocket and outside zipper pocket. Take a look here if you don’t believe us! We’re tempted to get our very own.

Via La Moda

Gents, you know a lady cannot go anywhere without her handbag. It’s an essential for us ladies, so why not spoil your wife/girlfriend/Valentine with a stunning handbag from Via La Moda? These genuine leather handbags are designed in a variety of styles, leathers and colours. All you need to do is find out which one she loves without busting the surprise. Easy enough, right? We hope so. Good luck!
