Valentine’s Day Gift Guide 2022 – For Him & Her
It’s nearly that time of year again – Valentine’s Day is coming up in just over two weeks. It’s the perfect time to celebrate your love for your partner or your friends on Galentine’s Day the day before. In the past, I have usually done two separate Valentine’s Day gift guides – one for him and one for her – but this year, I’m doing one with gifts that suit both men and women and several that can be shared and enjoyed together.
These handmade letter-shaped wire frames are wrapped with soft white LED’s ad stand up with the help of a wooden stand. They are battery operated so can be used anywhere and easily moved around. They look lovely in a living room or a bedroom and make a really sweet gift for a loved one. They’re available in the full alphabet and in ampersand so you can get your loved one’s initial or both of yours together with the ampersand. They are 22cm tall and look great both turned on and turned off.
You can’t say Valentine’s Day without thinking of pink bubbly! If you’re looking for a pink sparkling wine to share with a loved one, check out the amazing Francone Metodo Classico Valsellera Sparkling Nebbiolo Rosé Brut NV from Independent Wine.
It’s a UK-exclusive, truly unique sparkling rosé from the award-winning winemaker Fabrizio Francone. This delightful pink bubbly is made from Nebbiolo grapes which are usually reserved for powerful reds. The sparkling wine has been made using the classic method (similar to Champagne) and aged for three years which is long for a rosé. This gives the wine a smooth, velvety character. The pale ruby wine has fruity aromas – wild strawberry, raspberry, vanilla and toasted bread. Ideal for enjoying on Valentine’s Day!
This delicious wine is available with free next day delivery to UK mainland and you can also get it gift-wrapped for free as well as receive a customized postcard with your order.
Mint & May is a wonderful shop run by a husband-and-wife duo, Zoe and Doron, with lots of beautifully designed quirky objects for the home. This bold More Amour print is a perfect gift for Valentine’s Day, celebrating love and the fact that there can never be too much love in the world.
The striking and romantic print has a French-inspired design (think Moulin Rouge!) and is printed on premium quality paper with a matte finish and fade-resistant inks. The size is A3 which works well in many rooms of the house. It’s absolutely gorgeous and I can’t wait to get ours up on the wall!
Can you celebrate Valentine’s Day without chocolate? I don’t think so. When buying chocolate for a loved one, you should of course buy their personal favourites. If your loved one is eating a dairy free diet, there are plenty of great options available these days. For lovers of dark chocolate, check out Divine Fairtrade Dark Chocolate Hearts.
For dairy-free lovers of milk chocolate, there’s some wonderful news! Ethical and vegan chocolate brand Ombar have a range of new chocolate bars and the Salted Caramel Truffle bar has received lots of attention with many people finding that it resembles Lindt Lindor and some even saying that it’s better.

- Sparkling Direct With Love Valentine’s Day Gift Box
