Are You Ready for Valentine's Day 2020? Maybe My Gift Guide Can Help Out.

Are You Ready for Valentine's Day 2020?
Maybe My Gift Guide Can Help Out.

Valentine's day is fast approaching and will be here before we know it. Just 3 weeks away now, I'm already starting to panic about it. I never know what to buy my guy as he's so awkward to buy for. He doesn't want 'mushy' gifts as he's a 'Man' so that rules out like 90% of the gifts. I tend to look for more practical gifts, something he can use rather than keep.

If you're struggling like me, I've put together a little Gift Guide to give you some ideas.

For the man who likes hats, we have a gorgeous Frencis Black & Grey Montagna Beanie from Trendhim which costs £35 and could make a lovely Valentine's Day gift for you other half. With it's Danish design, it's made of a soft and warm blend of materials making it very cosy for these Wintery months of the year. It's available in a wide range of colours so there's a colour perfect for everyone. My man loves simple colours so this black & grey is perfect.

For the man who likes to snack, we have some Super Salted Caramel Crispy Protein Gnawbles from Creative Nature which cost £27.90 for a box of 18 packs of 30g portions. These Super Salted Caramel Protein Gnawbles are crispy little nibbles of pea protein coated in Salted Caramel Dark Chocolate are deliciously moreish. They're Free From all Top 14 Allergens, making them  suitable for vegans and allergy sufferers and with 43% less sugar than the market leading brand, you can enjoy your favourite snack without having to worry about eating too much sugar! They could be great for the healthy man in your life.

Sticking with foodie gifts for the man who loves a sweet treat of two, we have OGGS 2 Pack Chocolate Fudge Cakes which are Egg Free and Dairy Free. They're a cheap and cheerful kind of gift for the cake or chocolate lovers out there. They're a cute little treat for V Day.

One last treat for the foodie lovers out there are these Nim’s Valentines Apple Crisps. Because nothing says romance like sharing a big bag of crisps with the man you love. By popular demand Nim’s is launching a limited edition, crimson coloured, Red Love Apple crisps in time for February 14th 2020. These Great Taste award winning apple crisps are Valentine’s red all the way through to the centre and have a mouth wateringly rich apple aroma. Sounds Sweet! Available as a Valentine's Gift Box containing a pack of 2 for £3.95, they'll make a nice affordable treat for those who are trying to get healthier this year.

Sticking with treats though, we have the Limited Edition Rhubarb & Custard flavour White Hot Chocolate from Whittard. Take a trip to the halcyon days of vintage sweet shops with their Rhubarb & Custard hot chocolate, reminiscent of the childhood confectionery favourite. They've layered sherbet sweet flavours of rhubarb and creamy custard on a white chocolate base for a lip- ickingly luscious pink (yes, pink!) treat. It's a lovely little treat at £9 for a 350g jar and is now available online and in stores. It's definitely a little different but perfect for warming up your winter nights at home. Who wouldn't love a pink hot chocolate?

If you're looking for a more exciting gift, how about an experience gift from Red Letter Days? With thousands of experiences to choose from and an easy to use website, what's not to love. They have everything from Spa Days to Afternoon Teas, Bungee Jumps to Fast Car Driving experiences. I choose a gift which you can read all about real soon for us to try. For our Valentine's Day, we'll be treated to a Three Course Dinner with Glass of Prosecco at Gaucho for Two. I'm so excited, It's going to be so romantic and delicious of course. Yay!

This one's a little quirky but so perfect for the man who loves his trainers more than his mrs like mine. The Sole Mate Sneaker Cleaning Kit from Atlantic Folk costs £25 and comes with two bottles of ultra effective cleaning fluid in a cute little gift set tin. It separates dirt from footwear like nothing you've used before. It’s the perfect balance of effective stain fighting and kind on colours. It's a cute little gift that a trainer loving man would appreciate a lot.

Next up we have a really fun gift for the outdoorsy kind of men in your life. The Wicked Body Bubble Ball. You can crash, bash and smash with the winner of the Best New Outdoor Toy award at London Toy Fair, the Wicked Body Bubble Ball! The 4 foot inflatable protective bubble let’s you collide into each other in perfect safety thanks to the durable vinyl and multiple air chambers. Perfect for playing bubble football or bubble bowling, they’re great fun for everyone. The inbuilt safety harness stops falls and injury so you can bounce away without getting hurt. It costs £50 so it's not cheap but it's lots of fun. Be aware that you will need to buy two of them if you want to play a game together so that's a cost of £100.

Last but not least, something for the organised ladies in your life, the Makeup Train Case from Ellis James is a lovely luxurious make up case perfect for organising all your makeup. It has 12 Multi sized brush or tool slots, a large main compartment with 4 removable velcro dividers and a removable zip pouch for all your on the go essentials. Made of soft touch quilted nylon with a wipe clean interior. It's also nice and padded for even extra protection. I know if I received a gift like this for Valentine's Day, I'd be more than happy, it's so lovely.

So, that's it. Nine lovely Valentines' Day gifts perfect for the love of your life. I do hope you've had fun looking through my Gift Guide and hopefully you've even found some ideas or inspirations to help you find the perfect gift for your Mr or Mrs this Valentine's Day.
