5 classic ways to say ‘I love you’ this year
Ahh, Valentine’s Day – a day as old as time; did you know it is actually over 1500 years old? More importantly, it is the perfect day of the year to show that special someone how much they mean to you—stuck for ideas? Look no further; we have put together the sweetest ways to celebrate February 14th – and this year, we are focusing on the classics.
From their favourite bunch of flowers and dreamiest pillow upgrades to candle-lit dinners, here are five simple, elegant, and meaningful Valentine’s gifts to make them smile this year.
Say it with chocolates
Simple, sweet and scrumptious – you can’t go wrong with the classic box of chocolates. Make sure you choose their favourite. Personalising their present with a gift card is also a sweet touch. Whether they like a vegan, dark, or milk selection, you can choose from some wonderful sustainable chocolate brands. Not sure how to know if a brand is sustainable? Head to our recent blog for tips on what to look out for and show the planet and your sweetheart some love this year.
Say it with a new scent
Valentine’s is a day for the senses, so why not treat your special someone to a splash of something they can wear all year? Perfume is romantic and thoughtful and a perfect Valentine’s gift to sweeten up their day. Think about aromas that define their personality – from flowery and sweet to spicy and mysterious. Do choose smaller, local brands with an ethical focus – a simple way to be more compassionate towards our planet while pampering your sweetheart.
Say it with dinner
Whether you whip out your apron and make a lovely meal at home or book a table at their favourite restaurant, Valentine’s Day is ideal for scheduling time together to enjoy a romantic meal. In today’s busy-busy world, we often miss opportunities to switch off and just be together; treating your special someone to one-on-one time over great food and candles will make it a Valentine’s 2024 to remember. And to make them feel extra special, why not call ahead and add a personal touch to your booking, like having their favourite bottle of champagne or surprise them with a cake – the little touches can make a big difference.
Say it with a good night’s sleep
Prioritising a good night’s rest is one of the best ways to stay happy, healthy and bright. Why not treat them to a romantic, eco-friendly Valentine’s gift this year? Shop our range of cosy bamboo treats for the best bedtime upgrades, like a snuggly, supportive pillow. Whether they prefer something on the firmer side, such as our classic Bamboo Pillow, or the quilted cushioning and optimised breathability of our plush Hybrid Bamboo Pillow – you can find a pillow as perfect as they are. All our pillows are made with advanced-generation memory foam that naturally contours to all sleeping positions to keep them sleeping aligned and comfortably.
P.S. They will love you so much more after a good night’s sleep.
Say it with flowers
From deep red roses to pretty pink lilies, flowers fill our rooms and hearts with joy… And smell as gorgeous as they look. Sending flowers is a colourful way to put a bright smile on your special someone’s face. Go all out and wow them with a hand-delivered bouquet for the ultimate surprise, and let them know of all the millions, billions of people in the world – you’re so glad they picked you.
