It’s pretty nice for us girls to receive flowers and chocolates as gifts on Valentine’s Day but after a while it can get a tad boring. Equally, it can be really difficult to choose an original gift for the men in our lives. So here I have done the hard work for you and hunted down my top ten ‘Last Minute Valentine’s Day Gifts’, all available from talented UK makers. If it’s a bit late for Valentine’s Day, all these gifts are ideal for any romantic occasion.
A really fun and sweet idea is this wooden jigsaw by Lou Brown Designs. Not only can you personalise it with your own ‘I Love You Because…’ message, you then get to watch the recipient piece together your message right before your eyes.
I couldn’t resist including another item by Lou Brown Designs, as this little typewriter is so cute. It comes with five ‘I Love You Because…’ notes for you to write your own love messages and then display them in the cardholder, for all to see.
These vibrant orange heart earrings by Claudia Made This are a perfect contemporary choice of jewellery this Valentine’s Day. They are available in loads of different colours, including mint, blush, coral, purple and cobalt blue. How to decide on a colour, I have no idea!
If the list of reasons why you love your Valentine is endless, then these love tokens by Bombus are ideal. You can have up to ten wooden hearts personalised with your ‘I Love You Because…’ messages, all kept neat and tidy in a little drawstring bag.
If you want to show your Valentine just how great they are in so many different ways, then thoughtfully fill in the blanks of this mini hardback book ‘What I Love About You’ by Deservedly-So.
These heart bobby pins by Damson Tree Pottery are ideal to keep stray hair out of the way for some Valentine’s Day smooching. The set of two ceramic hair pins, in gorgeous pinks and reds, come in a pretty gauze bag.
Can you keep your hands off each other for long enough to make all of these colourful origami hearts? If so, this really original Valentine’s Day gift by BEEcycle is an excellent choice.
Sometimes there is not much more to say on Valentine’s Day than ‘I Love You’ and these porcelain magnets, by Delphine and Max, say it beautifully.
If you want to show off to the whole world why you love your Valentine, then this heart bunting by Connie Clementine is the perfect way to do so. You can personalise each heart with whatever reason you want, no matter how zany!
At the end of a romantic evening together, what better way to relax than with this incredibly cute jammy biscuit cushion, by Nikki McWilliams.
