Valentines Day Gifts: His + Hers

Sunday, February 10, 2019
Todays post is going to be my final valentines day gift guide for the year and it contains a variety of items that would be great for him or her. I don't want to assign a gender to gifts so I want to preface this post with a little disclaimer - I think any of these gifts would be great for men or women. I was very kindly sent a range of items from Gioteck, Red Candy, Very and Sewing Is A wish for today's post.

*Gioteck TX-40 Headphones - White (£24.99)
Let's start with the Gioteck headphones, I was lucky enough to be sent a pair for one of my Christmas gift guides last year and loved them so I'm glad that I have another pair. I do prefer this pair but that's solely based on the colour option as white/red/black is more me than bright pink, if I'm honest! The headphones have some great features which is always a plus especially for the price point. I've never been a huge fan of headphones as they remind me too much of the awful and uncomfortable headphones I had to wear in school but thankfully these are comfortable, easy to use and great for everyday use at my desk.
*Superdry Dot Aop Backpack (£40)
As we all know by now, I love to give and receive practical gifts so this backpack ticks all of my gift giving boxes as it's a great brand, the backpack looks amazing and it is a practical gift that would be suitable for so many people. The backpack features numerous pockets and compartments so it would be ideal for travelling or commuting, it isn't too bright so it pairs well with most casual outfits and it's surprisingly comfortable!
I haven't worn a backpack for so long, probably since secondary school as they were always too big and uncomfortable but even with a decent amount of *mostly unnecessary* stuff inside, it's still comfortable and a good size. I'm very petite at under 5ft and I thought this backpack might be too big but the size is great and thanks to the padded straps, it's comfortable too. I think it would be a great practical gift, from a well known and well loved brand!
*V by Very Sheepskin Slippers (£30)
Valentines or galentines day is the perfect excuse to treat yourself or someone else to a few winter essentials such as a cosy pair of slippers. I was very kindly sent a pair of real suede sheepskin slippers from the lovely people over at Very. The slippers are from the V by Very range and they come in a sleek gift box so half of the wrapping is done for you (which is great if you can't wrap gifts like me!).

The sizing ranges from small to large, rather than shoe sizes and I opted for the small size as I have teeny tiny feet and they fit perfectly! If you're thinking of buying a pair for yourself or someone else, I'd recommend sizing up. They come in a grey shade or this cute and cosy brown and cream pair which I love. I am used to my Primark slippers but these are so much better quality, far softer and they fit really well too. I cannot recommend these cosy slippers enough as a valentines or galentines day gift but you'll have to be quick if you want to receive them in time for the big day. Very has an amazing range of gifts for men or women and for any budget too!
*Iridescent Gin Glasses from Red Candy (£20)
Home and practical gifts are ideal safe gifts and these iridescent, unusual gin glasses from Red Candy. I've been lucky enough to work with Red Candy previously and I cannot recommend their site enough as they have a wonderful range of more unusual and unique homeware and gifts. They have a huge sale on at the moment so, go, go, go!

The balloon glasses have a capacity of 750ml, they have an amazing iridescent finish and golden metallic rim. They'd be ideal for valentines or galentines day cocktails and mocktails or as a gift as it comes beautifully boxed. I think the price is fantastic for such lovely glasses for yourself or as a unique gift for someone special, whether it's valentines or galentines day, birthdays or as a house warming gift.
*Sewing Is A Wish Pouch (£6)
Last but not least is an extra special item as it is a handmade pouch that would be great for makeup storage, adding to your handbag, as a coin purse or for travel tickets. I have the cute star print pouch as I love anything with a star or celestial print but there are so many designs to choose from. It's a great size as it is large enough for makeup and toiletries but small enough to easily fit inside my handbag. I personally love receiving and gifting handmade items as they're much more special and one of a kind compared to mass produced gifts. Also it's always nice to support smaller or independent businesses!

What do you think of these gift ideas? Will you be celebrating valentines or galentines day this year?
